Best PC Microphones Buying Guide

avatar6.jpeg avatar
Lisa Flores

PC microphones are essential to maintain clear and precise communication, enjoy your favorite games to a greater extent, upload videos to networks, perform professional work with the required level or simply record a song as mere entertainment or more it would be to make a model.

For a long time, we have found computer microphones with high performance at affordable prices, which allows users to access the quality product that we need so much. The use of the microphone is common in our lives and its good service depends on something as important as our virtual communication.

If you’ve got here, you already have good knowledge of many aspects of computer microphones. Even so, it is necessary that you take into account a series of criteria to choose the most appropriate device for your needs. Below, we summarize the most important considerations before you buy a microphone!

Microphone use

Depending on the use you want to give your microphone, you can choose between the various options offered for each situation, such as pure entertainment, communications by platforms such as Skype, uploading videos to YouTube or other networks, as well as professional work. They require maximum quality. The fan is very wide.

Directionality

It is very interesting to know the address of the sounds that you are interested in capturing. So you can opt for a specific option that meets your requirements, although there are professional microphones that are configured to work by alternating the three characteristics:

  • Omnidirectional
  • Bidirectional
  • Unidirectional

Directionality (polar pattern) indicates how a microphone is sensitive to sounds that arrive at different angles around its central axis.

The unidirectional is sensitive in one direction, the bidirectional receives the sound from the front and rear, and the omnidirectional has a 360 degrees polar diagram.

Compatibility

It is essential to ensure the compatibility of the computer microphone that you want to acquire with the operating system (Mac, Windows, Linux) used by our device, as well as the different versions of them.

However, most products usually work with all systems. Also, we must check if the connection process is simple (directly to the USB port) or also if it requires some type of software or drivers. In the second case, we will simply need some time to carry out the installation and start working or enjoying our microphone.

Quality

Let’s not be fooled by first impressions. A very cheap product, in the long run, it is usually expensive. Good quality is non-negotiable if we want to avoid disappointments and setbacks. For this, we must know the materials and properties of the product, as well as bear in mind that the most recognized brands usually offer a greater guarantee of success in the purchase.

It is very important to analyze the characteristics, as they indicate the level of response of the microphone to the greatest demands. In any case, the quality measure stick also depends on the result we intend to obtain since a Skype talk is not the same as professional audiovisual work.
