Your Favorite Podcasting Microphones

Man do podcasters love their microphones! And it seems that there are a lot of podcasters interested in knowing more about what microphone to use as well as what others use.

We asked on twitter: What’s your favorite podcasting microphone?

It certainly was a lively conversation!

I’m amazed by all the high end microphones our producers are using! I think we’re going to have to do some diggin’ for a future post to provide y’all with some ‘economic’ choices. 🙂

Podcasting Microphones By Podcasters

For those of you that missed the conversation, here are the microphones suggested by podcasters for podcasting:

theRamenNoodle Daniel J. Lewis @libsyn You’ll hear this one a lot: the Heil PR40. #podcasting

jonreadscomics Jon M. Wilson @libsyn The simple bottom-of-the-line Logitech analog headset. Clear reception, no buzz, works like a champ.

karinhoegh Karin Hoegh @libsyn I agree with @theramenNoodle Heil PR40 #podcasting

goodbadgeeky Nick Nitro @libsyn marshal XML condensor mica

ctrlaltdeliver Jim Meeker @karinhoegh @libsyn @theramenNoodle Heil PR40 is not in this teacher’s budget, but is in hopes and dreams #podcasting

mediacastguy MediacastGuy @libsyn Heil PR40

invervegas KDP @libsyn Fav mic for podcasting: Behringer C1

Legopolis Steven Schapansky @libsyn Blue Snowball FTW!

bcdunkel Brian Dunkel @libsyn Anyone suggesting any good budget microphones? #impoor

TheMediocreShow TheMediocreShow @libsyn EV RE20 the finest vocal transducer known to man. Am I right @RickEmerson

RickEmerson Rick Emerson @TheMediocreShow @libsyn You…are correct, sir.

richardgperry Richard Perry @libsyn Shure SM7B

bonnyface Julie Kuehl @libsyn @bcdunkel Logitech headsets don’t get enough credit. They’ll do for a tight budget.

YoGeek ♥ Elsie Escobar 4 an onthego podcasting Mama: built in ZoomH2 mic & audio-technica PRO88W RT @libsyn: What’s ur favorite podcasting microphone? #podcasting

reformedcast Scott Oakland @libsyn I use the Heil PR40 and absolutely believe it is the best mic available!

mediacastguy MediacastGuy @libsyn The best VALUE microphone for #podcasting is the Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB. Less than $50 US from Amazon.

jtswhipped jtswhipped @libsyn @legopolis @bcdunkel @themediocreshow @rickemerson @richardgperry @bonnyface @reformedcast shure mics. The only way.

TokyoPodcast Anthony Joh @libsyn I love my RODE Podcaster USB mic becos I only need my laptop + mic to record my show. It’s a portable studio I can take anywhere

TheMediocreShow TheMediocreShow @jtswhipped @libsyn i have a shure sm7b as well, the RE20 still sounds better for male voices.

Do you see any microphones that are missing from the list? What do you use?
