I have been using gaming headset microphones for the better part of 10 years now and looking to upgrade to a better sounding device.
My current headset is the Steelseries Siberia 650 RGB. Great sound but the microphone quality can be improved.
I have been watching some YouTube videos for suggestions and seem to find a lot of good praise for the Blue Yeti USB microphone.
Another possibility would be the Audio-Technica AT2035 microphone.
A simpler version of the AT2035 is the AT2020 USB.
Several TAW members do some Twitch streaming and just wondering what they use or recommend.
I'm going to suggest the AT2020. You don't really need to go above that unless you plan on doing really high quality audio recording.
I can suggest the Samson CO1U. I have used this for the past 3 years and has performed well in every situation. I cant flaw it in anyway possible and the Playback is crystal clear. My Father in-law is a music producer and nabbed me this from his studio.
And for only £60 you cant exactly go wrong. I myself have only used it for minor things such as recording and TS. But i know people that use these in the music industry, small time that is, and they have no problems with it. Oh and it does not come with a stand, so if you get it you would have to buy one separately. i allways have found it much better then having a mic around my face anyways.
Hope this helps!
