Some context: I recently started working remotely (Europe) for an American startup. We have daily video-conference scrums; the devs in HQ call from a room with something that feels like some kind of video-conference-capable monitor in a wall, with a poor mic. There is a lot of echo on their side, which makes things awkward.
So I am wanting to send them a gift, a good microphone; but I am not sure how to go about it. On the technical hand I should really ask them first because I don't know what will work with their device. On the social hand it can be awkward or sound like I'm sneakily wanting them to buy it themselves. (And maybe it can even be a financial/taxes/whatever problem? It's only about $100, but still...)
So, any recommendation about how to do it?
