Heil Sound: How to Choose the Right Microphone with Michelle Miller Levitt (Livestream Deals)


Welcome to the Livestream Deals podcast, I’m Ross Brand. Coming up, Michelle Miller Levitt of Heil Sound talks about how to select the right microphone for livestreaming and podcasting and explains some of the differences between Heil microphones.

I had the opportunity to broadcast live from Podcast Movement using the Heil PR 40 microphone, which did a great job of cutting through the noise and making it easy for listeners to hear the conversation. Thanks to Heil for providing the mics, boom arms, shock mounts and headphones.

I also met our guest Michelle Miller Levitt at the Heil booth, where I tested several different Heil microphones and came away quite impressed with how the PR 40, PR 35 and PR 30 worked with my voice.
