I am looking for a microphone that is good for youtube gameplay videos and some other things like skype calls and other chat services and i dont want to spend to much so i guess my price would be around 150 dollars
If it is a headset with a mic, might I suggest one of the G series to Logitech, maybe G430 (80 USD), G35 (129 usd) G390 (160 usd). The G390 is the G35, only wireless. I've used the G35, it was good, I had never any issues, with it. The sound is superb.
When it comes to a ordinary mic, I don't really know about any in your price range, but the rode podcaster (229 usd) is pretty sweet.
It my be cheap but it is the best mic I have ever used. You want to get a dynamic mic not a condenser. Condenser mics are for use in studios and pick up a lot of background noise. Get that mic it has a desk top stand and get a pop filter and you will be good after adjusting the recording volume to 50% in windows. Check my profile pic to see what it looks like.
Look at the Blue mics.
The snowball is a good mic at a really good price ($70 on amazon). The Yeti is a step up but to get the best out of it requires and XLR audio setup.
This is done using the Blue Snowball http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8bEqs1sJhQ
i have been thinking about getting the yeti but i don't know how good of a mic it is..... I sure it is better than my Eazer Krackens mic
but i also have been looking at this one http://www.amazon.com/Samson-Studio-Condenser-Microphone-Bundle/dp/B001NJ81TY/ref=pd_sim_sbs_MI_2
i have heard it is a good mic ReviewTechUSA uses it and it doesnt sound bad, he does voice overlays so i dont see why it wouldn't be a bad mic for what im doing
Would you consider headphones in this case speakers in a headphones shell with a decent mich?
I'm currently using the GioTeck EX-05 wired and if you don't want the surround effect when listening to Youtube video's etc as this is mainly a gaming headphone set.
You can either make or buy an adapter to convert the left and right audio channel cables *red and white* to a head phone/aux jack. Then you just change the input/output switch too XBOX and make sure the USB cable is still in to power the headphones.
I did this and it helps immensely when listening to Youtube videos.;)
Whatever you do, do NOT buy Sound Blaster Tactic3D Rage. They hurt after 10 min or so.
