Over the last 15 years I've been using a Blue Snowball Microphone for vlogging with a sound rig/booth that I cobbled together for voice overs.
The problem with the Snowball and Mac input levels was it always needed maximum gain and required reading scripts quite loudly to work. So I recently upgraded to a new Rode NT-USB and it's brilliant.
I spent some time tuning it in to my system to reduce my natural sibilance, but now I have to watch blowing it out and peaking - a much better problem than having to add loudness all the time.
But the sound from the device is good. Recommended.
Here's my latest bike test videos:
