Your microphone just might be the heart of your podcast, right after the passion you hold for your topic, that is. The type of microphone you use to record your podcasts has a significant effect on the sound and quality of your recorded voice. In this episode, we listen to the sound recorded by different microphones in the same room:
- Built-in laptop microphone
- USB headset/mic
- Condenser microphone
- Dynamic microphone
This is not an exhaustive study, or even a scientific one. But listen and you'll hear the different characteristics of these mics. Maybe that will help guide you a little when it comes to selecting or upgrading your podcast microphone.
