How to choose the right microphone

Pick the correct microphone

The question of the right microphone is complex. There is a wide range of manufacturers and microphone types. The most famous manufacturers are: Rode, Shure, Sennheiser Blue, beyerdynamic and many more.

But how do I know which microphone is best for me?

It all depends on your admission situation and your financial situation. If you are just starting your podcast and don’t want to spend a lot of money on a microphone, USB microphones for smartphones are a good option for you. Of course, you can also start with a professional and rather expensive model. If you want to record a lot of interviews in your podcast, a lavalier microphone might be the right option for you.

Here is a small selection from cheap to expensive microphones.

But what should you look for when buying?

Here are a few tips:

  1. What connections does the microphone have? (USB or XLR connection)
  2. Is there a significant noise floor?
  3. Is an extra audio interface necessary?

Hopefully this post could give you a little insight into the microphone world.

Now it’s time to get on the microphone and record your podcast!
