Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Monday, August 6th, 2018.
Choosing a microphone for live streaming and podcasting is a more personal choice than most people realize. Reviews and price points won’t indicate whether that mic will actually sound good with your particular voice. Michelle Miller Levitt of Heil Sound was a recent guest on Livestream Deals. She offered her recommendation for how to pick the best mic for you.
More info on Heil microphones at LivestreamDeals.com. You can watch the full interview with Michelle on our brand new LivestreamDeals Facebook page: Facebook.com/LivestreamDeals.
Our deal of the day features a USB microphone that’s a great choice for new live streamers and those looking for a solution in the double digit price range.

What’s the best microphone under $75 for #livestreaming and #podcasting? I watched popular podcaster Pat Flynn (of Smart Passive Income with Pat Flynn) test 3 mics and I thought one was clearly the winner, but at the end he equally endorsed 2 of the 3 mics. I will tell you why the Samson Q2u is the best podcast mic under $75, better than the more well-known ATR 2100 from Audio-Technica and much better than the condenser Blue Snowball (for livestreaming and podcasting). You want to use a dynamic mic for podcast recording and livestream video because it will pick up less room noise. Both the Samson Q2U and ATR 2100 come with XLR and USB cables.
