USB Microphone Reviews
Take a look at our side-by-side comparison chart to determine which USB microphone is going to be best for your needs. Just because you’re going with a USB microphone instead of the traditional XLR connecting mics, doesn’t mean you won’t get a good quality recording.
On the contrary, many USB microphones (especially the ones by top manufacturers like Rode and Audio Technica) make superb quality recordings – especially for their price.
And because they are USB-based, you often don’t need additional pre-amplifiers, audio interfaces and phantom power. They are very convenient devices, especially for the bedroom/basement studio that is centered on computer-based recording.
Here’s a quick rundown of the USB microphones we review on this site:

CAD Audio U37
