Shopping for a computer stand microphone

Postby Agouti » Tue May 31, 2011 5:02 pm

Any advice? I have no idea what to go for. As per everyone else here would be after reasonable quality at a reasonable price... budget wise it's only for talking so don't need studio, and it's plugging directly into a soundcard.

Being as I'll always be sitting in front of it, and don't want typing sounds etc fouling it up, I was thinking a "shotgun" style direction mic?

I realise headphonic don't sell mics (or at least, separate ones) but hopefully someone can point me in the right direction ^_^

Cheers guys!

Got a logitech USB mic that i use with the playstation when i'm not using headphones.
Seems decent. got an on/off push button that lights up (which is actually handy).
Think it was about $30 so you could easily find something cheaper. Anything thats not usb would be cheaper too.

After much research, ended up buying Audio Technica AT2020 (USB powered). $140 from an eBay seller, so not exactly pocket change - but I have trouble buying cheap and nasty crap and it's a nice quality cardoid condensor microphone without needing a phantom power supply.
