My latest and least-expensive microphone recommendation

Share

1

This one rocks. It’s only $39.99 here: Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB Cardioid Dynamic USB Microphone.

Unscrew the top and pull out the inner foam (use scissors or tweezers) and throw the inner foam away. It’s not good for stopping plosives, plus it smells like diesel (as do most things from China these days). Leave the grill off for a day and let it air out. Then put the grill back on and put a foam windscreen on the grill (get those HERE):

Throw away the little tripod stand, it won’t get the mic close enough to your mouth. The mic should be about a fist away from your mouth. Use this mic stand.

This mic shows up as a different mic (USB2005) in programs, but it’s all good. If you wanna hear this mic in action, over FeenPhone, listen to me (Michael Dean) on the first 13 minutes of this episode.
