    Blue snowball or yeti are pretty decent in terms of having a mic that works. Only problem is that they tend to malfunction meaning that your computer forgets them and stops picking them up even though they work fine, currently rocking n audio technica at2035 which i love and captures a nice full sound.

    I'm using the Rode Videomic Go mounted to my camera - simple, no external power source needed, and decent quality. Get a 'DeadCat' to cover it for wind noise though!

    I made a video on this a couple days ago, I personally adore the AudioTechnica AT-2035 with the Behringer 204HD, giving the Mic some REAL power

    I'm not sure if this has been asked before given that there are 43 pages to this thread, but my friends and I having a gaming channel and we've been doing Let's Play style videos and recording chat audio via discord. I've been using a Blue Yeti mic, but the two other people I've been playing with have been using lower quality microphones (apple earpods). Does anyone know of any affordable headset microphones that they could plug into their cell phones via AUX and give them better quality audio? Thanks!

    I've had the same question. I use a headset and mine is dying. I also have a Blue Yeti, but since I move around a lot while I'm recording, I want something where there's a consistent distance between my mouth and the mic. But when you look online for headsets, all anyone talks about is the sound quality to the headset, never about the quality of the microphone. And nobody can ever give any recommendations based on the quality of the microphone, they just give high end gaming headsets.

    My current voice recording setup is a cheap chinese SM57 knockoff into Behringer Euromix 2802 mixer into RME Hammerfall HDSP PCIe sound card.
    As you can hear in my narrated videos my voice sounds horrible on that microphone. Guess I'll switch over to a Rode NT1-A microphone at some point in the future. This one requires phantom power which my Behringer mixer fortunately can provide.
    For recording and editing the voiceovers (I confess I separate screencast creation and VO recording) I use Cockos Reaper 5.78.

    Hey RedFox :)
    Excellent list, good microphones.. Cheers!
    I used Samson C01u in the past (still have it) and now I use the Shure SM7B
    Both microphones are great for voice recordings.
