I was wondering where the microphone for the CVR is located in a cockpit.
Is it a feed from the pilots headsets or something remotely located within the cockpit.
From tapes it appears to pick up all surrounding sounds. TIA
you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!

There's generally a microphone that captures ambient noise (so you can hear things like switches being flipped, handles being moved, etc.) and then the headsets and microphones get recorded as well. But things will vary based on the type of airplane and the type of recorder.
