Marco Arment’s Podcasting Microphones Mega-Review

Marco Arment:

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.
