Best Budget Mic for Livestreaming & Podcasting (Ep 030)

By Ross Brand

What's the best microphone under $75 for #livestreaming and #podcasting? I watched popular podcaster Pat Flynn (of Smart Passive Income with Pat Flynn) test 3 mics and I thought one was clearly the winner, but at the end he equally endorsed 2 of the 3 mics. I will tell you why the Samson Q2u is the best podcast mic under $75, better than the more well-known ATR 2100 from Audio-Technica and much better than the condenser Blue Snowball (for livestreaming and podcasting). You want to use a dynamic mic for podcast recording and livestream video because it will pick up less room noise. Both the Samson Q2U and ATR 2100 come with XLR and USB cables. NOTE: Here is the link to Pat Flynn's video -- it's an excellent video for anyone looking for an intro to budget mics for podcasting and livestreaming: https://youtu.be/UnxJO_lzof8.
