35 - 65 pounds, which seems to depend on the quality of the headphones.
The mic seems to be identical across the range.

I don't have a preamp, unfortunately. I do have a dynamic mike though.
The problem would be getting the output close enough to the computer
to record without picking up ambient computer noise.

A pre-amp box would cost about 20 pounds, which would be less than a new
mic, but I'm concerned that the same hiss will be present. Certainly
plugging the mic direct into line in and normalising post recording
didn't seem to produce a cleaner sample.
