I'm looking to get into YouTube gaming commentaries, and I need a decent microphone. I'd like to spend under $50 if possible. It doesn't need a bunch of features or anything, I just want something that will record my voice clearly.

Thanks,

That looks pretty good. I'd prefer it to be cheaper though. I have no shortage of money, it just seems like a waste to spend a lot on a mic when I could get games or something instead. I suppose it would be worth it in the long run though.

Well, I like the idea of it clipping onto the headphone cord, but that product on the Canadian website still seems to ship from the UK, and it costs an extra $7 to ship and it'll take 3 weeks.

I recommend that you buy the Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000, really great for recording. But the headset has a high-base, so not really good for listening. When I bought them they were $25. But on amazon right now there 12.25. Really great deal. If your going to buy it there is only one left in stock right now, so I would hurry.

I have the Zalman mic fantanel linked and I love it.
Amazing quality for the money. You should be able to pick one up locally or some a Canadian site, just google Zalman clip-on mic.

Ps fantanel thanks for the link, I've been meaning to buy another for my brother, but had a hard time finding a UK supplier.

I have that Zalman mic too and it's a pretty good mic, amazing for the money. But if I was serious about commentating videos on youtube, I would probably get a blue snowball.

It appears I can get that Zalman one for $10 from NCIX. I suppose I'll do that.

Hi, VoiidWulf! ^-^

Yeah, you could go with those ones, but if you liked the Microsoft ones more, then you could get then for a little more,


http://www.nextag.com/microsoft-lx-3000/compare-html

Just keep going down the page and you will see one for $25 and free shipping.

Also, you can try to look for some promo codes for any store you would like, and they may work even in your Country.


Take care!,

If I were you I'd go with a Samson Go Mic, its insane quality and only $40!

Get on of these they are very reliable and EXTREMELY good sound quality.

The delivery may take sometime though.
Have a look through them there's a sound test on the side of the page for each microphone.

The blue mics are terrible.
