What microphone(s) do you recommend?
Well…? Yes! That’s a question for you. What microphones do you use when you create your screencast, web video or e-Learning projects? And, would you recommend it?
Quality audio is a never ending quest isn’t it? The topic of recommended microphones comes up fairly regularly. It came up again recently in this LinkedIn thread. (Note: Login might be required.)
For my part, I often switch-off between…
- Blue Microphone’s Yeti (desktop USB condenser microphone)
- Samson CO1U (also a desktop USB condenser mic)
- Audio-Technica ATR3350 (a wired lapel mic which you see me using in a lot of my “picture-in-picture” + screencast videos)
- A $35 Plantronics headset with boom mic (I can’t even find a link to it anymore because they’ve probably stopped making whatever model this is that I have)
And now I’m waiting for a Shure FP Wireless pack. (FP5 is the receiver. FP1 is the transmitter. And it comes with a WL 183 Lavalier microphone.)
