USB microphones are a popular type of microphone used for recording podcasts, voiceovers, and other audio content on a computer. These microphones connect directly to a computer’s USB port and do not require an external audio interface or mixer. They are typically condenser microphones and are designed to be easy to use and affordable.
USB microphones are also compact and portable, making them ideal for recording on-the-go or in a small studio. They may not have the same level of sound quality as more expensive microphones, but they are a great option for beginners or for those on a budget. Examples of USB microphones include the Blue Yeti and the Audio-Technica AT2020USB+.
