Reviews about Microphones? and Suggestions for one around $50-70

Hey Logan, I was wondering if your interested in letting us know what are favorite microphones to use and maybe do reviews on them. 

I have seen mostly headset reviews from you so maybe doing microphone reviews gives a different set of videos to go through and give variety to the YouTube channel. 




I am looking for a basic budget microphone about $50-70 dollars. I will mostly be using it for Livestreaming via Twitch,and doing YouTube commentaries. So free to leave any suggestions for good microphones


Here are a couple options for that price range.

Blue Snowball

Audio Technica ATR-2500:


If you do a little hunting you can pick up an open box Blue Yeti off of eBay or at B&H


I would wholeheartedly recommend the Behringer XM8500 for a budget microphone.  I just got it about 2 weeks ago, and it's performance is equal to, if not better than, the Blue Snowball and Blue Yeti.

You can buy it off amazon for $19.99, but you'll need a cable and adapter to use it on a computer, which shouldn't run you more than $34.99 for everything(Mic, cable, adapter, and pop filter).

I use an ATR2100 from Audio Technica and its really nice it only cost about $40
