Microphones are a very important part of YouTube videos, in fact, nothing transmits a good quality video like having a good quality sound, and this is one of the things that most Youtubers overlook when starting their YouTube channel. Here’s a list of excellent, yet affordable microphones that are great for YouTube videos:
This is a condenser type of microphone with a USB connection so you can easily use it to record your videos. You can control the volume through a headphone jack and the quality is one of the best you will find, especially if you consider this microphone to cost under $200. It is, without a doubt, one of the best price/quality microphones out there and a great start for anyone wanting to make YouTube videos.
This is a very versatile microphone and can be used in several settings. Besides the voiceover mode, probably the most used feature when you are creating your videos, the Blue Yeti also has the power to change its settings for conference or even interview mode. If you take into account that this microphone can often be found for less than $100, making this a most for every YouTube out there.
This microphone is a sort of downgrade from the Blue Yeti, however, don’t let that fool you. This is a great microphone that uses USB ports as its first connection. In fact, there are two different models of this microphone; the Blue Snowball that has 2 mic capsules, so it receives sound from every direction and is great for voiceovers, and the Snowball iCE, which has only a single cardioid and no adjustments on height but also a cheap and great alternative, especially if you are just starting out and don’t have a large budget.
