    Blue Yeti
    A worthy microphone:
    Blue Yeti
    The Blue Yeti is another solid microphone (and it doesn’t just come in blue!). It’s capable of clear, broadcast-quality sound thanks to its custom three-capsule array. It can also grab up to four pickup patterns, and it’s adjustable, so you can easily optimize your recording space no matter how much room you have (or don’t have).

    Hyper X Quadcast
    Function with style:
    HyperX QuadCast S USB Microphone
    The HyperX QuadCast S USB Microphone can pick up sound with four different pickup patterns and record 48kHz sample rate at a 16-bit depth, ensuring you can get an accurate recording across the mic’s 20Hz-20kHz frequency. It’s also got a flashy facade, thanks to the RGB lighting.

    Blue Yeti Nano
    Blue Yeti Nano
    The Blue Yeti Nano shrinks to Blue Yeti down to size. While it loses two recording patterns in the process, the ones kept are specifically for podcasting and streaming. A solid companion to stream with and cheaper than the normal Blue Yeti, too.

    Elgato Wave
    A customizable option:
    Elgato Wave 3
    The Elgato Wave 3 allows recording at high audio resolution with a 96kHz sample rate and 24-bit depth and includes the Wave Link software to control your audio. One of the biggest draws of this microphone is the accessories available to customize your setup. Overall, this is a pretty great mic, especially if you’re streaming exclusively.

    Shure Mv7 Mic
    Shure MV7
    The Shure MV7 is expensive, and for a reason. This professional-grade mic has both XLR and USB connections, a frequency response range from 20Hz to 20kHz, and offers a heightened resolution with a 48kHz sample rate and a 24-bit depth. This mic can hear it all — probably more than even our own ears!
