It’s hard to find useful microphone recommendations for
podcasters: most people have only tried one or two, except pro
audio engineers, who have very different needs and record in very
different environments. And almost no reviews include audio
samples to compare.
So I set out to change that. Some commonly recommended mics were
disappointing, some were right on, and I’ve found some real gems
that were previously unknown in my podcasting circles.
I bought his top-rated microphone, the Shure Beta 87A, a few weeks ago, and I’ve been very happy with the results.
