Best USB Microphones For Screencasts, Voice-Overs, And Podcasts

Matthew Averkamp

These tools can help you...

  • Record professional sounding audio without needing to purchase additional equipment. (You can plug the mic directly into your computer’s USB port.)
  • Record at a higher quality than a USB headset or your computer’s built-in microphone.

The Yeti by Blue Microphones costs $100+ (Amazon pricing will fluctuate).

The Yeti includes four recording pattern settings: stereo, cardioid, omnidirectional, and bidirectional.

If you’re recording a single voice (yourself), you would use the cardioid (heart-shape) setting. This will pick up the sound coming from directly in front of the microphone and cancel out any background noise. to make sure you’re positioning the mic correctly.

This mic includes a stand, but you can also detach the mic and use your own mic stand and shockmount if needed.


The Audio Technica AT2020USB+ costs $140+ (Amazon pricing will fluctuate).

This mic includes a stand, but you can also detach the mic and use your own mic stand and shockmount if needed.
