Best Budget Mic for Livestreaming & Podcasting
Best Budget Microphones Under $75
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.
