Michelle Miller Levitt of Heil on Choosing a Microphone
Livestream Universe Update & Amazon Alexa Flash Briefing
Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update podcast and Alexa 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.
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. The Samson Q2u is the dynamic USB microphone I used for over two years and is available now on Amazon for just $54.99.
