Best USB MicrophoneLooking for the best USB microphone you can use to record your vocals/instruments or whatever else? Whether you’re a podcaster or a studio musician, there are a handful of really great USB mics that deliver clear and crisp audio quality without breaking the bank.

You’ll notice throughout we review a lot of the same brands. That’s mostly because these powerhouse companies are the ones that deliver the best quality microphones (and USB microphones) in the industry.

Sure there are a lot of options out there as far as USB microphones go, but only a select few are great for a wide variety of applications. It used to be the case that USB microphones weren’t even close to studio or broadcast quality, but the industry has come a long way.

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:
