Hello, I was going to ask for a new video card for my birthday, but instead I think I will ask for a new microphone. I currently have SteelSeries Sibera V2s, which I love, however I'd like to get higher-end microphone, one of the reasons is that my microphone on my headset is oddly quiet. I think about sending it in every now and then, but I think it is too much of a hassle as I was thinking about getting a new microphone, anyway.
So I'm a gamer and I think I will start recording more videos with a voiceover and maybe even some podcasts! We'll have to see, but I'd like to know what a good, inexpensive microphone is.
I do not mind clip-on microphones at all, as long as they're not too fragile and they still have good sound quality. I also do not mind something that would sit on my desk. As long as it is not too expensive (around $100, maybe more, maybe less) in total for all things that need to be bought in order for it to function.
I was thinking about the Samson CO1U, seeing as it has a good price. That and even maybe the BlueMic Snowball. I don't really need a pop-filter, but if it fits in the price range, then perfect!
Also, the microphone will need to be hands-free, e.g. a clip-on or including a stand.
I would suggest either of these microphones. The Yeti would be the simplest to set up as it is just one cable. The AT2020 on the other hand would require a Mixer that would in my opinion make your gaming setup look a little more flashy. The mixer would take up some space while the Yeti would take up little to no space.
