I'm looking for a great microphone to record videos for a YouTube channel. There are plenty of good mics for under $200, but I can't decide which one to get. I'm only considering USB microphones for convenience and portability.
So far, I've found four USB microphones I like:
🎤 Rode NT-USB $169
🎤 Rode NT-USB Mini $99
🎤 Blue Yeti $129
🎤 Samson G-Track Pro USB $129
Of the four, the recently released Rode NT-USB Mini and Blue Yeti are the two top contenders. However, Rode NT-USB released a few years ago still gets rave reviews.
Any recommendations on what microphone I should get for YouTube videos? Should I also buy a mic boom arm?
