It is not at all uncommon to see TV personalities, musicians and many more recording content from their homes. While you may not be a TV personality or a musician, you may still have a need to record or capture crisp audio. Today we’ll talk about a great microphone. Yes, I’ll provide links to Amazon from which I’d receive a tiny commission if you buy something. No, I didn’t get a free one.
I know many of you probably use a “cheap” microphone or maybe one in a headset or webcam. Yes, a quality microphone definitely costs more. But a good microphone can make a huge difference and that’s why you may want to consider the beyerdynamic FOX USB Condenser Microphone.
Most of the cheap mics use a tiny eletret condenser. This one has a large cardioid condenser that is able to capture a much larger range of sound without distortion. It also gives you a pop shield, a nice thick USB cable and a headphone adapter. Yes, you can listen through headphones while you are recording.
Whether you are doing an online meeting, a podcast, gaming or even recording a tribute to John Prince; this microphone will get the job done for you. Yes, it is a bit more of an investment than a headset mic, but it is worth it in the long run!
