I am also a fan of the Buddy desktop and gooseneck microphones. They have
both been updated to support the 7G USB converter from Buddy. I prefer the
gooseneck where possible (it clamps to the desk) as it has much greater
position-ability and the microphone is at the tip of the unit.
I recently deployed this microphone for a client who had very limited
mobility and was using the Dragon Dictate for Mac application. It replaced
a different microphone that he's been using, and after we set it up he
indicated it was the best recognition results he ever had with the software.

Had a lot of success and found great support from these folks:
Their desktop mics: http://emicrophones.com/c-49-desktop-microphones.aspx
All the mics they sell are DNS compatible, last I checked.
