This mic was probably my favorite purchase. Friends comment that the voice quality is stunning. I would recommend getting the Neewer mount for about 15 dollars if you're on a budget, this mic does pick up a lot of vibrations with the table stand it comes with. Also, purchase a metal 5/8 to 3/8 mic adapter if you do order the Neewer mount, the plastic one that comes with the Neewer mount is a piece of shit whose threads strip like nobody's business.

Edit: provided links

Link to Neewer Scissor Mount $12.50

Link to 5/8 adapter $4.95

Link to Rode PSA1 Mount if you have money to spend $98.79

EDIT 2: u/Mebbwebb stated the Neewer mount might not come with the tightening knob for the Mic. In that case you would have to use a wrench to tighten the mount where the Mic attaches to the arm. The Neewer mount I have has a tightening knob. He has linked an offer that includes a tightening knob plus the mount he linked is cheaper and comes with a free Google Cardboard promotion.

A good headphone stand:

A cool glass/metal stand thing to put under your tower or monitor:

A big long mouse+keyboard pad that like a rug, ties your whole desk together:

A cool scissor arm to hold & move your microphone:

For things that are more significant than accessories: Get some active studio monitor speakers, a nice dac/pre-amp/mixer, a mechanical or electrostatic-capacitive keyboard, a REALLY nice office chair, and stuff like that. A good battlestation is about a lot more than a big monitor, cool case, and some good processing power.

u/[deleted] · 11 pointsr/buildapcsales
  • V-moda boompro is good if your headphones have a detachable cable. You can also zip tie it to the back of your monitor (using zip tie tiedown points) and have it stick out the side.

  • I currently use a Audio-Technica ATR-2100 on a scissor stand connected via XLR to a Scarlett 2i2. This is overkill for most people, but I find the scissor stand convenient and I already had the Scarlett 2i2.

  • On an extreme budget you can get by with a clip-on mic.

  • The Antlion Mod-mic is a bit more expensive at $55, but is really nice.

Arm: (will not fit the yeti without the shock mount)

Crappy pic of it all

u/Salyangoz · 9 pointsr/Flipping

thanks for the review. Ive a few of these arms in my workbench as well. If it helps anyone save some $$$ using 3-6(for dslr) of these microphone mounts and hacking them together can get the desired effect with extra parts to spare and no more sway because you have doubled the springs. Ive been using that for about 2 years now and theres no noticable lack in strength.

Youll be saving about 80$+ (From 120$ to <40$). I dont have a dslr anymore but there should be some dslr tripod mounts that you can 3d print to also get that camera holder mount.

If not I can build a 3d model and test it out for anyone for a small fee (once I do, ill send it over to you if youre in the US).

edit: downvotes :/

u/pooka123 · 9 pointsr/buildapcsales

Here is the link. It does work with Blue Snowball and yeti. Just check the Q/A below

u/ChaoticToxin · 8 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Not being a dick or anything just dont want it to fall

u/JohannesVerne · 8 pointsr/VoiceActing

The Yeti is fine for dicord/skype chat and gaming, and the polar patterns can be helpful for untreated setups to find the one that picks up the least noise, but it isn't good enough quality for voice over. It doesn't have a very full bass response, and the treble frequencies are fairly harsh on it.


Fortunately, there is a setup you can but for about the same price (or a little cheaper!) that has a good enough quality for professional work! For the mic, I recommend the MXL V67G if you are on a tight budget, with a Behringer UM2 interface. You will also need an XLR cable, a pop filter, and a mic stand to complete the equipment side of the setup. You will also need to do some acoustic treatment for your recording space, which can be anything from recording in your closet to building a pillow/blanket fort. It doesn't need to cost you anything, so long as you can find a quiet space and pile up on the soft, cushiony material. The XLR setup will give you a full frequency pickup, a cleaner preamp, and the V67G has a nice warm tone to it that is pretty forgiving of voice type. I used a similar setup to land an agent (I've upgraded, but still use the V67G occasionally) so I have no doubts about it's capabilities.


Good luck, and feel free to let me know if you need any help!

u/brother_bean · 8 pointsr/sysadmin

I'd say for me, if I were making my own home office and wanted to trick it out:

At minimum a dual monitor setup, but it would be nice to have 3 (I have dual monitors and also the laptop screen running them so it works out to 3.) A nice monitor arm that will hold both (or all 3) monitors to keep the desk clutter free. Something nice that makes both monitors adjustable for you (maybe even a 90 degree rotation so you can code on a vertical screen when you feel like it.)

A nice condenser mic with an arm for it as well. I figure if I were working from home I would probably be doing conference calls more regularly than if I were in the office, so a good condenser mic will make my life easier and make sure I can communicate well. Maybe a blue yeti or blue yeti snowball with a nice boom arm for it like so so I can use it when I want it and then push it away when I don't.

In the same vein, a decent webcam that can clip on to my monitor (or buy one of the above boom arms and attach the camera to it, probably smart for only $15 so you can move it around.)

Definitely a great office chair since you can justify the expense and you're going to be sitting all day.

This one is great regardless of working for home or working from the office, but a nice mouse. I just got a Logitech G502 the other day for gaming as well as work purposes and MAN. I never knew what I was missing out on. I have thumb buttons/extra buttons programmed to copy, paste, delete, winkey + e to open an explorer window, ctrl + t for new tab, and also a key combination to switch my active window to my other monitor so I can quickly move stuff between them without having to click and drag.

Since you're working from home and don't have to worry about bothering other people, I'd definitely buy a nice mechanical keyboard. They're a dream to type on. I used to have an office to myself so I bought one and I miss it dearly now that I'm in a cubicle. In my opinion, well worth the expense.

Again since you're not in an office you could get a nice speaker. Bluetooth to keep the cord clutter down but really anything works. You can go budget or big here.

If you're a whiteboard person, a whiteboard to hang on the wall.

Definitely yes to the dock. I have one here at my office and it's so flipping nice being able to plug in one thunderbolt cable and keep the clutter contained to the back of my desk behind my monitors with the dock.

I'd probably buy a nice standing or desk light that still uses filament bulbs to make it warm/easy on the eyes. Ample lighting. And probably a plant or two just to make it look nice and feel good being there.

That's all I can think of. Can you tell I'm living vicariously through you? I know you said must haves, so if I were going to buy the above in order, it would be monitors > dock > mouse > blue yeti snowball > mic stand > camera > camera stand

u/omnomanom · 7 pointsr/buildapcsales

No, you likely don't NEED this nice of a boom arm. The $12.50 NEEWER arm will certainly get the job done for much much cheaper. But if you prefer professional/higher quality and don't mind paying a premium for such, then the RODE arm may be for you. This thing very rarely goes on discount as you can see here.

u/FormulaBass · 6 pointsr/buildapcsales

Your mic stand snapped? I'm pretty sure you got a defective product. The mic only weighs 1.2 pounds without the stand...

I have the $10 NEEWER stand and it's been great for about the year I've had it.

u/Silaryia · 6 pointsr/skyrimmods

If anyone's curious about getting an XLR setup, I can direct you to some pretty good starting gear! I personally use the Audio Technica AT2020 cardiod condensor microphone and a Focusrite USB audio interface. You'll also want to buy a male to female XLR cable of some kind. A pop filter is also a good investment! And, of course, you'll want a stand of some kind for the microphone. I personally use this but it limits your ability to move the microphone away from a desk.

If you want studio quality, be sure to record in 24-bit 48k, with an uncompressed format like a wav. That's the standard both Hollywood and indie productions have been using for years.

Oh, and if anyone's curious about credentials, I mix and record audio for commercials.

u/mythrilguy · 6 pointsr/letsplay

Actually there are plenty of mic arms under $100 that hold the yeti, it's just the seller will state otherwise. This is what you want:
I own it and it's great for the price.

u/AlanDavison · 5 pointsr/letsplay

As far as the volume for recording at, that's a good volume. I record at a level that makes me need to boost my audio by a good 30dB or so before I do any other work with it.

Buuuut... sadly, you're definitely too far away. As far as positioning it more closely, I think your best bet is going to be something like this. It's cheap, and it shows in the quality, but it works.

u/Munkwards · 5 pointsr/battlestations

Try getting a Boom arm will take that clutter of the mic away from your keyboard.

u/skeletonmage · 4 pointsr/ColoradoSprings

I would stick with a USB condenser microphone. They're phenomenal as they have a built in condenser and some have built in noise reduction. That doesn't mean you shouldn't do post editing to the show (like running a condenser and noise reducer over your audio), but it helps shave a lot of post work off.

I run the XLR version of the Audio-Technicia AT2020. What I'm linking is the USB version and you may be able to find it used, or cheaper, elsewhere. It's a phenomenally powerful microphone for little cost.

If you want to go XLR, because you feel like you need to do some on the fly mixing, a Scarlet interface + the XLR version of that microphone is a great combination. You can go more advanced with a Behringer Xenyx Q802USB (what I am running), but if you're just starting out keep it simple.

Also pick up a microphone boom, pop filter, and a shock mount (that particular shock mount has a pop filter with it). Keep it off your desk and about 5-6 inches from your mouth when podcasting. You want to reduce all extra noise including mouse clicks, keyboards, or bumping your desk.

If that's too expensive, a Yeti or a Snowball are great introductory microphones. There is a reason everyone uses them. I cut my teeth on a Samson CO1U, but eventually upgraded to the AT because the sound quality is a bit better. Just...always get some kind of arm or tripod or something and keep the microphone suspended.

At the end of the day, as long as you're using some kind of condenser microphone, it doesn't really matter. Post production can help make the whole podcast sound a lot more enjoyable. Just make sure you're consistent, have decent audio quality, and are excited to podcast. I wrote up some dirty tips and tricks here if you're interested.

Good luck!

u/SpaceManY3k · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

I just got this. I got tired of my G930 always disconnecting, so I'm going the good headphone + good microphone route.

I use it with Discord mainly, and I just up'd the threshold where it picks up sound. No push to talk necessary.

I also scooped this up.

It says it's not compatible with the blue yeti, but the attachment has a converter that threads with the blue yeti. It's a little tricky to wiggle it out. So far, it's hanging fine.

Hope this helps someone.

u/Talha215 · 4 pointsr/techsupport

Yes, and while it’s really really cheap, I find the quality to be surprisingly good when on a stand and the mic is very close to your face.

Here’s the mic I bought.

Here’s the stand I bought

Here’s a link to my voice in a YouTube video I uploaded

Not a great YouTube clip lol but it’s quiet and clear and that all I need for YouTube uploads and discord.

u/reddittailedhawk · 4 pointsr/beadsprites

All you need is one of these. Fairly cheap, and you can hang your camera from it instead of the mic. Looks much better than taping your perler cam to a paper towel roll, which is what I was doing before...

u/VaughnWhiskey · 3 pointsr/Twitch

The stand given with the AT2020 is complete shit. Maybe look for a desk one and mount it on a wall or something.

like this
My current one -

That's what I do with a old flat panel mount. I have tried different locations and it seems that it sounds better rather away then up close with the right settings.

bLeaguer said they have noise but I have never had any with it for recording or streaming but I do use a noisegate for the fact is i make stupid noises and type hard.

Also make sure it is plugged in to the back of your PC in a USB and not a front USB port. This might be what cause the noise bLeaguer has mentioned.

Shock mount is nice to have but I find it isn't really needed, same as a "POP" filter.

u/ELite_Predator28 · 3 pointsr/letsplay

OP PLEASE disregard all these comments and buy this mic arm for $13: LINK

This mic stand isn't supposed to fit a Blue Yeti but it can; there's a bit of a trick to it. Basically you have to unscrew the male part of the fitted bolt on the stand and put the male end into the bottom the the Blue Yeti, then screw it onto the stand. Here's a video encase I wasn't clear:


Here's what my setup looks like:
I pinned it to the back of my desk and have the stand and mic hanging over my monitor. I've haven't had any issues with this thing at all since I bought it a year ago.

u/Anberlin_ · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

If you're in need of a mic stand to go with it, this seems to be a popular one

Edit: So I've set it up and tested it and the mic sounds great. It doesn't pick up any of my key presses or mouse clicks although you just have to mess with the thresholds and gain a little to suit your room and whatnot. The Neewer stand is nice also; easy mount and easy to move around

u/Novux · 3 pointsr/macsetups

Amazon link here, some reviewers specifically mention using it with a Blue Yeti, so you should be good.

u/Zero_Heart · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

I bought this for it, Really like it for streaming and recording gameplay stuff.

u/SHiZNiLTi_OG · 3 pointsr/headphones

Cheap, but has lasted 1 year now no issues with noise or anything else..

Also this is probably the best quality USB mic you will find, rivals the Yeti. Remember to always run USB mics on a POWERED USB hub for zero feedback noise...

u/TimeRocker · 3 pointsr/Twitch

Ive been using this Neewer arm for over a year now and it works great.

The only thing I had to do with tighten down the joints on it because of the Yeti's weight, but it works flawlessly for me. You can screw the yeti onto it right at the end by taking off the mic holder. I have my arm attached to a mic stand so I have more options on where I want to move it.

NEEWER Microphone Suspension Boom Scissor Arm Stand

My boom is... cheaper than his. Mine clamps to the desk, so depending on your situation it might or might not work.

u/ATM223 · 3 pointsr/LivestreamFail

Shockmount helps a lot but also the suspension boom.

u/Egsession · 3 pointsr/letsplay

What kind of computer are you using to record your gameplay with?

For audio, a cheap dynamic mic would be a great way to go. It might not sound great initially, but a lot of those problems can be solved easily with software--Audacity is free and easy to use, and makes our recordings sound much better despite the mic's problems. You'll also need an XLR cable to go with it--preferably XLR male to female, but you can also find an XLR to USB one if you want to connect it directly to your PC. Otherwise, you'll need an audio interface to go with it. As for mic stands, I've honestly never had a problem with this one. It's not as easy to maneuver as the 100 dollar one, but it should serve your needs as a beginer.

If you're recording multiple people, you could get the Blue Yeti--a lot of people swear by it--but it's also a lot more expensive and it picks up everything if you're not careful. A lot of people think that the Yeti is cruise control for great audio, but it really doesn't do much more than a cheap mic can. I would just recommend having an audio interface that connects at least two microphones and then buying another dynamic mic instead.

As for recording your Switch, the standard is the Elgato. I'm currently using the HD60 model, which is nice, but it has some latency issues (meaning you'll need to manually sync your audio with your video). The HD60s has no latency problems, but it's a bit more expensive.

u/PaperCutRugBurn · 3 pointsr/Twitch

I use THIS boom arm. There's a small black piece that unscrews from the mic holder part that can screw into the bottom of the Meteor. For the price, this thing has worked amazingly well. I'm able to keep the gain low (as to not pick up ambient noise) and can position in it in between myself and my keyboard, yet not covering my face.

u/Flag5ive · 3 pointsr/Twitch

I think it all depends on your current setup concerning desk real estate and how you use your mic. I picked up a very cheap boom arm (~$20 CAD on amazon) just to clear up some space for my mouse/keyboard. That being said, it did help filter out some vibration sounds and the convenience of being able to easily move my mic to and from is really nice.

I'd happily recommend a boom. If not for the removal of vibration sound, than definitely for the convenience of mobility and added desk space. Note: I also use a Blue Yeti.

u/Aezalius · 3 pointsr/letsplay

The ATR2100 is a damn good microphone which you can add into more complicated setups if you decide to upgrade later. It's dynamic and has good audio quality, as well as being both XLR and USB. As well as a stand which I use which is one of the cheaper ones, but gets the job done.

If you're looking for a headset style mic, then the modmic is decent.

u/Xn007 · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Yeah, o-rings don't do much to any switch from my experience. And if you've got Razer Greens, which are pretty close to Blues, there is no muting that click sound. Especially with a Yeti, that even picks up my board that's as silenced as I can get it. This mic stand made a huge difference in vibrations/sound quality honestly though.

But you need a non-clicky keyboard mainly, with either tactile or linear switches.They're a lot quieter already than clickies.

You can also get silenced versions of both with rubber dampers inside, like Cherry Silents, or Aliaz, Zilents, but the latter silent tactiles are not available in pre-builts - only on hotswap boards like the Glorious Modular, Massdrop CTRL, or with some soldering. And parts for larger boards are rare, if you want TKL or larger, buy one of the previously mentioned boards.

u/carlmmii · 3 pointsr/Twitch

Well... I can honestly say that's a new one for mic preference. Bravo?

As far as a mount, that mic is light enough that you can pretty much use anything. There's a bunch of identical entry-level scissor mounts, all with the same design/clamp, like this one (hell, there's even one for a couple bucks more that comes with a pop filter). I use this for my own desk setup with an NTG-2, works alright, just know that it has its quirks and can't support anything over maybe a pound without overloading the friction plate.

inb4 PSA1 recommendations for a Disney mic.

u/Mert7 · 3 pointsr/oculus

I'm good on connectors, my main 3 screens are taking up all my display ports, I gotta move my t.v. off the HDMI and use a DVI adapter for that to make room for my Rift.

As far as the stand goes, I'm kind of hoping that bezel and gap between center and side monitor will be enough, other wise I'll get scissor stand, I can wait for prime shipping and just lay camera down when not in use in the mean time.

By keeping face plates clean I think you mean the face gasket?
Some people have been using face masks, especially people prone to sweating like my self. A face mask looks easier to clean than a face gasket, though I may get one too for comfort reasons.

The hard part of prep for me is finding a way to mount my hotas either to my chair or desk properly so they don't move when I'm in the Rift. Aside from that I think I'll just need some double sided foam tape for my Leap Motion and a usb extension cord, then I'm set.

If you need to do a Skype call Mix-Minus it will cost an extra $20-50 depending on how you would like to do it.

u/NamaztakTheUndying · 3 pointsr/headphones

It's way too damn heavy to the point where some products go out of their way to mention that you shouldn't even attempt to use them with it.

Has its own very specific shock mount, which is absolute shit, and will fall apart before you can tighten it to where it will actually stay where you want it for any real amount of time.

You can get a better, more complicated, but at the same time easier to swap things out, setup for cheaper.

Basically, to me, the Blue Yeti is the gaming headset of microphones.

u/NastyMcBurgers · 2 pointsr/battlestations

I see you have a snoball, I would suggest you add these good little guys to it. It makes it so much better.

u/notoknight · 2 pointsr/letsplay

That company you indicated has cheaper ones: , if you would like the same design. Though, I wouldn't trust how long it lasts (either the springs bust or threads flatten).

u/shinnagins · 2 pointsr/battlestations

It's the NEEWER stand, which i linked below. I like it pretty well but I had to get an adapter to get the yeti to fit correctly which I linked below. All in it does exactly what I wanted for a good price.


u/DestroyerOfIphone · 2 pointsr/Twitch

Don't waste your money on the PSA Just buy these two items

I have 0 feetback to my mic from the desk, and the stand works GREAT

u/shadowrabbit · 2 pointsr/podcasts

Your budget was right around what we spent, although we didn't use a mixer cause we do everything through skype and record locally. So that said all the stuff below if for a non-mixer set-up, maybe it works with a mixer, idk.

The Blue Yeti is a good mic for the price. It is not a professional mic by any stretch, but for $100 it's about as good as you are going to get, imo. Blue also has a snowball, for $50 which I actual have one of but have not yet tested in terms of recording quality.

The stand you can get for cheap. This one is the one I use, it screws right into the bottom of the Yeti.

Headphones I would actually recommend not going cheap on. We had this issue in one of our early podcasts where I broke out a $15 pair of cheap sony headphones and you could hear the audio I heard through the mic. I use these now, they're amazing, very comfortable.

u/LEntless · 2 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Is there a newer one that you can link that is a different design?

Unless if you're talking about Neewer brand that I bought in q3 2017.

It broke in the exact same way - where the arm assembly joins the base (the ~4" hollow metal rod). Cheap metal that warps, weakens, then finally snaps. Lasted around 7 months. Wouldn't recommend.

Was thinking of buying a rode psa1 once a good deal lands....maybe black friday. However, looking at pictures, it appears to be a similar design.

u/zaqttack · 2 pointsr/battlestations

makes sense! Though if you want to get that mic off your desk I'd highly recommend this mic stand. I've had it for about 2 years now with no problems, especially for the price.

u/Chuckles6969 · 2 pointsr/battlestations

I was struggling with this yeti for awhile, its just so big. I originally tried to get it on a NEEWER suspension boom that I connected the Yeti Shockmount, but I guess any kind of shock mount would work. I ended up not using any part of the actual scissor boom because it wouldn't support the weight of this mic at an angle that was useful to me, but instead used the part that mounts to the desk to hold the shockmount directly using the included threaded metal bar thing on the other end of the boom. here are some better pictures but it's still kind of janky. That's one hell of a mic you've got there. I hope you can figure something similar out

u/emackn · 2 pointsr/Twitch

I want that one. I got the cheaper NEEWER one and hate it. Doesn't move around very well and I always have to adjust it continually. It works for now.

u/mlsof21 · 2 pointsr/letsplay

If you want a cheaper option, I've had good luck with the Neewer Microphone Suspension Boom Scissor Arm Stand. It says it'll take up to three weeks to receive it, but I received the two I've ordered within a week.

u/kschaffner · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Damn, I just looked it up $100 :( I have this and while it works fine, the blue one looks so clean. Just wish it wasn't so expensive for a mic arm.

u/djpernicus · 2 pointsr/audiophile

I am looking to get a better audio setup and am a little confused as to whether I should buy a mixer or USB Interface. I've seen that a USB interface sounds better and is obviously more simple. Although, I am not sure if it is truly the better option. Anyone care to weigh in? I am only going to have my one microphone and basically live stream/podcast.

Here is what I'm considering(for aesthetics as well):

u/TehSecretHunter · 2 pointsr/Workspaces
u/DGPantherX · 2 pointsr/battlestations

The utterly shitty, NEEWER Adjustable Microphone Suspension Boom Scissor Arm Stand, it's due for a replacement after the tightening... stick/tool on the bottom decided to snap off. Another thing to consider is how loose everything gets as time goes on. If you have an adjustable wrench or two or a hex nut key wrench, it's not nearly as bad to deal with, but eventually I plan to replace it.

u/rpheneryiii · 2 pointsr/podcasting

I got these Neewer suspension arms to use for our podcast. You might need to get different ends to fit your microphone, but they're only around $13, so even if you had to spring for different attachments, it won't kill your budget.

u/CraZee__ · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Thanks! Not a fan of the overly green setups, I like using it as a accent colour more than anything.

The mic stand I got a few years ago, and think they changed the design slightly now, but it was this Neewer that seems to be the current version of my stand they are selling. Its definitely nicer than having a tripod, keeps it off the desk. For the snowball though you have to change it slightly and take this part of the tripod stand off to use it but its simple enough to do.

u/pizzalover101 · 2 pointsr/Twitch

I have the C01U Pro and it does the same. Here's my setup:

Keeping the mic away from the keyboard helped a little bit. The other thing that helps is noise gating on OBS and Discord. However, the mic stand is really cheap. It works, but it isn't great. I plan to upgrade to this eventually.

Hope this helped.

I'm looking for a beginner-ish set up for use with my PC. This is what I've come up with so far and just wanted some input, see what I can change etc.

Component | Price
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 | £124.00 / $154.99
Audio-Technica ATH-M50X | £128.00 / $159.93
Audio-Technica AT2020 | £89.99 / $112.48
Boom arm and pop shield | £17.98 / $22.49
Edifier R1000TCN 2.0 Bookshelf Speakers | £45.95 / $57.48
Total | £405.92 / $507.71

I'm looking for middle of the road but excellent quality gear. This list was compiled by research and reviews on the best bang for your buck components.

3. How will you typically be using the gear?

Speakers will be next to my monitor so ~arms length away.

4. What gear do you own?

Unfortunately I own a "gaming" headset. It was cheap at the time I purchased it and I never gave it a second thought but now I think is the time to upgrade to a proper set up.

5. What do you intend on using for a source?

The source will be my PC.

6. What material will you be using your gear for?

This will be typically used for every day gaming, streaming, and listening to music through streaming services. I usually wear headphones for very long periods so comfort and lightness are extremely necessary. The bookshelf speakers listed above are only cheap ones for this reason, as I listen through headphones the majority of the time. The music I listen to varies quite a bit depending on the mood, from djent and tech metal, to lounge and soft house.

This Neewer one is the one usually recommended (I've had this one for a year now, works great)

This other Neewer one looks to be about the same model but also comes with a pop filter

This Rode: Mic Arm Pro: No springs to vibrate Con: Expensive


This Neewer: Neewer Arm Pros: Cheaper than Chilis Cons: Springs can vibrate and sound awful when bumped

u/BaiIeyRS · 2 pointsr/battlestations

If that one is out of your price range, I have this one and it is a lot cheaper. I know there is a saying you get what you pay for but I don't think the $90 premium for the Rode stand is worth it. The only thing I dislike about this mic stand is that there is one nut that comes loose that you will have to tighten every so often.

u/badoomtch · 2 pointsr/microphones

Here is the Rode stand. It's quite pricey, but it's high quality.
Here is a cheaper version.

u/SureIllrecordthat · 2 pointsr/microphones

The Shure SM58 might be the most durable Mic on the planet.

If you were to get an SM58, a Blue Icicle, an XLR cable and a scissor boom mount, you'd still have $35 bucks left over for headphones.

u/KVYNgaming · 2 pointsr/Twitch

Ok well I won't explain everything in mine because it's a little over the top, but that's because I recorded music before I got into Twitch so I already had all my equipment. But what it essentially is a dynamic mic w/ XLR cable -> audio interface w/ USB cable -> computer. Here's the cheapest possible setup I could find on Amazon:

Shure PGA48 w/ 15' XLR cable: $40

Behringer Xenyx Q502USB: $60

Neewer Suspension Boom Stand: $14

total: $114

Do keep in mind that this mixer only has one pre-amp, meaning you'd only be able to plug one mic into it. If you wanted to plug in more than one mic (for instance if you have a friend coming over or something), you'd need a different mixer with more preamps. But yea my setup is essentially the above, just with more expensive stuff haha

If you wanna hear what my setup sounds like (getting a setup like the one above would get you a similar sound), here's a short highlight to see what it looks and sounds like (I chose this one to highlight the fact that you can move the mic around):

Note how even when I grab the mic and move it, you barely hear anything. That'd never happen with a condenser mic.

u/OmoideAeternum · 2 pointsr/headphones

I recently came into a situation like this when switching from my HyperX Cloud IIs to audiophile-level headphones.

I solved my problem by buying a cheap condenser microphone + boom stand + usb audio adapter and then plugging my headphones in separately.

Not only did I end up with better sound quality, I ended up with better microphone quality than both a gaming headset and the ModMic / BoomPro.

u/Pyroraptor · 2 pointsr/letsplay

The only one you need to worry about is the shock mount. You can use any pop filter you want.

The best placement for a condenser mic is 6-8" from your mouth and pointing away from as much background noise as you can. Having your keyboard in front of it means you will likely pick it up a lot. You can have it off to the side a bit. This is called off-axis recording. I personally have about 15 degrees of off-axis recording so that I don't breath into my mic. It helps a lot, but also reduces your sibilance a bit.

If you are worried about having it in front of you then you can get a desk mounted boom stand. That's what I use and it allow me to place it closer, still have access to my keyboard and mouse, and not block my monitor. Also you can move it out of the way when you are not using it. Highly recommended, but you would want that shock mount if you do mount it to your desk. That's because you bump your desk a lot and create vibrations.

u/mstrblueskys · 2 pointsr/TwinCities

I have a buddy who runs a music studio, but if you needed the space, he'd definitely set it up for a podcast interview.

I do tend to agree that you should be able to get pretty close to studio sound on a budget assuming you have a computer already. I understand that sometimes owning stuff is a huge hassle itself, but if it's something you want to do a few times, the cost savings would start to be there.

Since no one has given you any real advice on how to do this, I can give it a shot.

I'd start by installing Audacity on your computer. It's super basic, but what you're doing is super basic. And it's super free. That's a huge plus.

Next, decide how you want to do microphones. First, you'll want stands. If it's an interview/two person thing, you'll need a couple of these (or more if you want more mics). We're at $25 for two now.

Next, decide what quality you want to be at. The Blue Snowball is a pretty great entry level microphone. I've honestly never run two into a computer before, but I imagine it'd be easy enough to record two different microphones on two different tracks in Audacity. That would bring our total to around $150. To upgrade in this way, you would go to something like the Blue Yeti. At over $100/unit, that adds another $100 to your cost.

The other way to do microphones is using a USB Interface for your computer and buying standard microphones. I'm keen on that option because it's a little more flexible if and when you look to upgrade your setup. You can use $15 microphones to get by or if you're locked and loaded, you can upgrade to really nice condensers.

As far as soundproofing goes, you can decide if that's possible wherever you're at. The last voice over project I worked on, I hung blankets in my bedroom and that was perfectly fine. Obviously that's not the most professional look, but there wasn't a pile of ambient noise to deal with and the directional mics do a good job focusing on your voice. You can build sound dampening walls with plywood, insulation, and fabric if you really want. It takes a staple gun, some screws, and about an hour per panel.

Assuming you have the time, an okay computer, and about $300, you could really build yourself a nice studio. If this is a one off kind of thing, it's definitely not worth it. My buddy's place is called, The Petting Zoo and I'd be more than willing to ask him details if you want.

Either way, good luck!

u/CrucialMove · 2 pointsr/battlestations

I have a Blue Yeti Blackout on a microphone arm (cheapy $20 version like this one ( but without the black adapter at the end of it, and it has worked beautifully for the last three years, I can even invert my microphone to where it's hanging upside-down over my monitors and it's still steady as a rock. The arm can extend for about two and a half to three feet in every direction and is very easily adjustable.

I would definitely recommend checking to make sure whatever arm you buy is compatible with the microphone though, as some aren't. There's plenty of cheap versions on Amazon that can clip to your desk and easily support the weight of the microphone.

It's cleared up a lot of my desk space, made it easier to cable manage and use my microphone, and you don't get any of the infamous desk vibrations coming through your mic that the Blue Yeti is so well-known for.

TL:DR; A cheap Blue-yeti compatible mic stand can be found on Amazon, and it's a much better recording experience on a mic stand than on the desk stand that comes with the Blue Yeti.

u/GnormPlays · 2 pointsr/letsplay

I know this might not be the exact answer you're looking for, buuuut, for the price it's worth a shot, you said you already have stands, so give This a try

u/Crashboy96 · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

If you don't have a lot of desk space just get an arm microphone mount.

Just attaches to the very edge of your desk, you can stop putting the condenser mic away, and it's easily movable.

Going to need a better stand than that one I linked for the real heavy mics however.

u/mindlessASSHOLE · 2 pointsr/hookah

I was looking into microphone holders like this. Assuming your hose is long enough. I ended up using an old clamp I had lying around.

u/louizzle · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

anyone know if you can mount this on something like a NEEWER Scizzor Arm Stand?

u/coololly · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Go for an XLR setup, you get really good sound quality for the price:

Mic: Behringer Ultravoice Xm8500

Audio interface: BEHRINGER U-PHORIA UM2

XLR Cable: AmazonBasics XLR cable

Mic stand: NEEWER Mic arm

Total price: $68.50

u/SourCrisps · 2 pointsr/Twitch

nah man, thats a great webcam, most people have webcams on 720p anyway, plus it has the added feature to crop you out of the background as well if you cant afford to get a real greenscreen set up. as for mics, most people roll with the blue yeti as the best recommendation as the gain can pick up your voice at any distance as well as have a mute button. downsides being that its a usb mic and "pro" streamers usually go xlr, but for us where streaming is a hobby it works just fine. Also, you need to buy a boom arm ( this is what I use) with a decent shock mount because the mount it comes with is garbage picking up all the taps or any shaking. Cheers and good luck streaming! hope this helps.

u/mahhfew · 2 pointsr/podcasts

My partner and I are huge podcast listeners and are looking to start up one in the near future.

I've been doing a ton of research recently on the essentials needed to run a podcast with 2 hosts. Budget-wise, I'm looking for something that won't break the bank but delivers a great sound overall. Here's the list I've gathered so far.

  • Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 audio interface
  • ATR2100-USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone x 2
  • Samson PS01 Pop Filter x 2
  • Microphone boom arm x 2 (optional)

    Do you have any recommendations on the above setup? Is there anything here you would swap out?

    I haven't done much audio post-production but I am familiar with the process from my video editing days. We don't have any desire to be mobile at the moment, so we're looking for a fixed setup.

    Thanks in advance!
u/YaBoyNazeem · 2 pointsr/podcasting

It depends on your recording environment. If you are just starting out and are recording in a bedroom or office I recommend a cardiod dynamic. Cardiod refers to the pattern around the mic that it picks up. Cardiod mics are most sensitive right in front of them in contrast to omidirectional mics which are sensitive to sound from any direction. A dynamic mic isn't as sensitive as a condensor mic and doesn't pick up a lot of background noise.

If you are just starting out I recommend one of the following:

One Person w/ USB mic:

Audio Technica ATR2100 -- ($69)

Neewar Boom Arm -- ($14)

On Stage Foam Wind Screen -- ($3)

(Total - $86)


One Person - w/ XLR interface:

BEHRINGER UMC22 Interface -- ($60)

Behringer Ultravoice Xm8500 -- ($20)

Audio-Technica ATH-M20, Can use any headphones -- ($50)

Knox Boom Arm -- ($50)

On Stage Foam Wind Screen -- ($3)

(Total - $189)

The first group is "as cheap as you can get" and still get decent quality. The second group is definitely a better setup.

Ethan cohost of the Shieldwall Podcast

EDIT: The second group is definitely a better setup in that it allows you to upgrade down the road with better gear. If you have the money an Audio Technica ATR2100 or AT2005 would sound a good bit better in the second list than the XM8500. But do these sound 4 times better considering them being 3-4x the price? Hard to say.

u/brianf408 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

You definitely want to go for a dynamic microphone. Don't let anyone talk you into a condenser, they are GREAT for recording but will pick up every bit of background noise you have.

If you can spring a few more bucks, you really can't go wrong with the ATR2100.

I've never used this one, but the CAD U1 should definitely be sufficient for your needs.

I would highly recommend a scissor boom mount to get the microphone off the desk. It will help isolate from keystroke and mouse noise, and keep people from hearing a thump if you bump into your desk.

u/dovakeening · 2 pointsr/podcasting

Sure thing!

It's this one.

u/yatogamii · 2 pointsr/hardwareswap

I won't ship it because It's $13 on amazon (exact model) and would be a pain to try and make it fit in the box.

u/DiscipleTD · 2 pointsr/Twitch

Try this (Blue Yeti Mic) and this mic stand


These might look a little like his buddies. But the mic is very recommended from streamers and such, I personally us it and it is great. If he likes his headphones then a new mic would be another step to improve his audio.


I would say that I am not sure this is ideal for him, just trying to help as much as I can based on the original post!


EDIT: This is a cheaper mic made by the same company that is also a great option. Best of luck!

u/-SPENCER- · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Pretty sure it is the Neewer arm. Pretty cheap on amazon.

u/Drigr · 2 pointsr/podcasts

Unfortunately, $300 for a 4 person set up is going to be hard to make work well since you're basically starting from scratch. That's not to say it can't be done. Unfortunately, I'm going to give recommendations based on what I know is cheaper from a reputable name and hope none of these are right out terrible.

Behringer Q1202USB 12-Channel Mixer. 4 mic inputs, USB connection, $100.

Behringer Ultravoice Xm8500 Dynamic Vocal Microphone, Cardioid 4 at $20 for $80. Alternatively, BEHRINGER ULTRAVOICE XM1800S is a pack with 3 mics for $40, with one from the last link, gets you 4 mics for $60.

Cable Matters 2-Pack Microphone Cable (Mic Cable/XLR to XLR Cable) 6 Feet 2 packs of 2 at $15 for $30.

NEEWER Adjustable Microphone Suspension Boom Scissor Arm Stand 4 at $12 for $50. Alternatively AmazonBasics Tripod Boom Microphone Stand if a desk mounted stand is not ideal or possible, 4 at $20 for $80

I'm also not sure the diameter of those mics but I recommend whichever one of these fits. On Stage MY325 Dynamic Shock Mount Microphone Clip or On Stage MY330 Wireless Shock Mount Microphone Clip both about $10, so $40 for 4.

Depending on what compromises you're willing to make, this is a pretty budget 4 person set up at $280-$330, and I'd recommend saving the last $100 or so you need for it.

u/Mikzeroni · 2 pointsr/podcasting

My recommendation go to is always the ATR-2100. For ~$70 each you can't go wrong. If that's too expensive you can grab the Samson Q2u which I've been using now for years and love.

You definitely want a dynamic mic if you'll be recording with 3 hosts and you can even pick up a little scissor stand for $12.

So, 3 Q2u = $180 + 3 arms ($36) = $216 which isn't bad for a whole podcast setup as long as you have an audio recorder of some kind. Best of luck and let me know if you have questions!

u/yankinhammer · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Here's the mount

I used this tutorial to mod it a bit so it fits.

u/PCPrincipal2016 · 2 pointsr/razer

I use this for my blue snowball and its been great!

u/MisterPenguino · 2 pointsr/letsplay

I skipped around a bit in the video, and I honestly didn't notice anything. It wasn't the best, but definitely not awful. That might have something to do with my phone speaker though, I feel like this thing misses some bass, and voice overs with too much bass are pretty bad.

If you want to try moving your mic closer to your mouth before getting an whitely new mic you could try getting a scissor arm for pretty cheap and putting the mic right up in your face. I typically don't have my mic any farther than 3-4 inches from my mouth when recording. Closer than that would be better, but then the face an looks cluttered, and nobody wants that either.

In terms of the low buzz you hear after turning up the levels, have you tried processing the audio in anything like Audacity? Most programs have some sort of Noise Removal tool, though some do it better than others (personally sound like a tin can when I do it in Audacity but had no problems using noise removal in Audition).

This is pretty much the basic starter set that will really serve you well.

ATR2100 or Samson q2u for mics. Very similar mics that can just be plugged into your PC via USB. They both also have an XLR connection which future proof them if you buy other equipment. Both do a great job of rejecting background noise and they sound excellent.

u/Ronin1791 · 2 pointsr/OfficialDLive

Unfortunately, the mic I use is not as good as yours so I can't recommend anything. That being said, the mic I have was better than my HyperX Cloud Alpha's mic by a mile so I'd imagine your snowball is even better. You can add a noise suppression filter for your mic in obs or slobs, whichever one you use, to remove background noise from your mic. That's what I did. The mic stand I use is a cheap one from Amazon: The mic stand is great because when you're done, you can move it to the side so it's not in the way. As for, it merges your DLive chat and Twitch into one chatbox, that way you can interact with followers from both platforms at the same time without having to switch between the 2

u/cococatlord · 2 pointsr/Twitch

Desk arm mic stands are pretty dope and cheap. I have this one and it has worked well enough for how cheap it is.

Extra xlr cables are always nice to have around. A pop filter is also nice, though you probably need one with that dynamic mic you'll be using. Headphone extension cables can be nice depending on how things are set up on your desk, and how long your headphone cable is. The Focusrite Solo also only has a quarter inch headphone jack, so if you don't have an adapter you could pick up one of those you should be good though!

Edit: Also any kind of adapter to hook up the RCA outputs on the back of the Solo to your pc speakers if you have some too!

u/Onotaro · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Keep in mind that if you want to upgrade to a higher-quality microphone or bigger setup, you may have trouble integrating USB gear into that setup, and a better USB microphone will cost much more than an equivalent analog microphone. So, if you see yourself upgrading to a better microphone in the future, or getting a more "professional" sound system, you may want to stray away from USB. If you go for an analog microphone and an audio interface, you will usually have better sound quality at the same price points as well.

With that said, I would go with the MXL 770 and a Focusrite iTrack Solo. I use a Focusrite product myself. These are very capable and well-regarded budget home recording devices.

Now how do we get this in budget? In audio, it's not a bad idea to go used or open box. For example, you can grab a Focusrite iTrack Solo from eBay right now for for $70 or less. Buy the MXL 770 from Amazon, a Neewer boom stand, and a XLR cable, and you've got yourself a very capable and easily upgradable kit for $165. Then, if you want to upgrade in the future, you can jump up to a more pro-level microphone and still support it on the iTrack, or if you need to plug in more microphones or instruments, you can get another interface and still use the MXL 770.

TL;DR I would highly recommend going for a non-usb microphone like the MXL 770 and a budget audio interface. With an extra $25 and some smart shopping, you can get some equipment that sounds better AND will save you money with future upgrades.

Feel free to ask me any questions you have.

u/AMightyYeti · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

There's also the scissor arms that attach to your desk. They're not very durable, but fine once you get the microphone set up. Just don't expect to be moving the mic all over the place.

u/GinkoWeed · 2 pointsr/microphones

With a wind guard? That might be a bit difficult. Are you able to raise your budget at all? This pop filter and a Blue Snowball are just under $60, though I'm not exactly sure where you'd connect the pop-filter. If you could go up to $70, you could get this stand.

u/Trifax · 2 pointsr/VoiceActing

You have several XLR mics still want a USB mic for desktop use? It seems odd that you'd be willing to sacrifice the monumental leap in audio quality for the ability to stand it plainly on your desk. It would be easy, adjustable, and relatively inexpensive to mount an arm stand on the desk or a small standard mic stand.

What XLR mics do you have now? Think it would work to mount one of them on the desk?

u/kcramez123 · 2 pointsr/headphones

I use a blue snowball and I got a cheap boom to get it closer to me and a pop filter now it sounds great and you can't hear my keyboard at all. My switches are cherry mx browns though so they aren't super loud.

u/smushkan · 2 pointsr/videography

The Amazon Basics Video tripod (make sure it's the video one with the pan handle) is a good starting point, $23.49. You'll need some sort of iphone to tripod adapter too - they're available at price points from a few dollars to a few hundred dollars. No need to overspend if you're just starting out.

I'd recommend you keep that iphone on a tripod at all times - it's so small and light that hand-held footage will be shakey and offputting.

For lighting, assuming you're in a bedroom-sized space then a 3-point photography CFL lighting kit like this will be great. Nice, soft light which will make whatever you're reviewing look good. Cheap too - $46.99

Although I may be biased, I think sound is probably where most of those funds should go. People will happily watch 240p, grainy, blocky, blurry video on youtube but if they can't hear what you're saying then they're gonna switch off.

For piece-to-camera shooting I'd recommend getting a Rode Smartlav for $71.90. You can plug that straight into your iPhone for sync sound recording.

I'd also suggest getting a large-diaphragm microphone for voiceover work - i.e. whenever you're not filming yourself while talking at the same time. The Behringer C1-U is a great budget option that plugs directly into your computer's USB port for recording for $59.99. You'll need something to put it on such as a Suspension Boom ($17.99) and to make sure your audio is clean you'll need a pop filter. ($8.99)

So that's the very basics covered for $157.45 give or take though you can probably get that cheaper if you shop around. That leaves you $242.55 for some more specialist gear...

Depending on what you're reviewing, I'd recommend looking at lightboxes (5-walled cubes that you put the product in to give yourself a white background and even, soft lighting), and a motorized lazy susan (turntable) to give you some interesting options for b-roll.

If you're filming bigger stuff, then a white backdrop would work as well. You could go for something in optical green for chroma keying but keying is a pretty precise art and chances are if you're a total beginner it won't look that great until you really get the hang of it - so go for plain white first.

Chances are you'll still have some money left over after that too... iPhone footage is pretty damn good but you should start putting together a kitty for upgrading to a proper interchanagable lens camera.

I have my NEEWER and it's pretty fantastic. It creaks just a little bit when moving it about, but you shouldn't really be doing that while using it. It has that built-in XLR connection, so hooking up my real (non-USB) mic to it is a dream with no wires shooting all over the place.

You seem to be pretty knowledgeable, so maybe you'll have some input for me. I jumped on this yesterday as my girlfriend really wants to start making videos, but doesn't have a clue what she needs as far as video/audio recording etc. Anyways, I bought this setup to attach to my desk and use as a recording station. I don't know much about boom arms, or windscreens (and the quality thereof). I've just seen them used and Amazon suggested them and they seemed like a good deal so I jumped on them. Was surfing around after making the order, and was seeing some much more expensive boom arms, etc.. Got me to thinking maybe I bought something junky, as I have a huge pet peeve of buying quality if it's worth the extra few dimes.

Anyways, sorry for the wall of text, was just wondering what people think of this setup, given everything i just said about what I'm looking for;

I'm actually in the same boat as you and I have my eye on this same mic. However, I found it like $1-$2 cheaper to order the parts separately rather than the whole kit. AFAIK it's everything that is included in the kit:


NW-700 Microphone Set

Pop Filter Mask Shield

Scissor Arm Stand


I'm also interested if someone can provide additional input on anything else I'll need.

These are the items I bought, Amazon had a "suggested bundle" that i got, i might check out a different pop filter if you go with that mic arm, i had to get some spacers to make it so the screw could tighten all the way down.

Mic -

Arm -
Pop Filter -

Other than the pop filter complaint everything works well and sounds great.

Oh okay. I thought you meant you wete going to buy one, but it seems you already have one. I'd use this free program called OBS (Open Broadcast Software) this program let's you layer the gameplay and facecam at once, in real-time, and record it. You can stream with it as well, also you can do both at thr same time!

The mic I use is cheap, but sounds very nice. It is the Floreon BM-800 and is on sale for 71% off or $28USD. You can find audio tests of it on YouTube, it is quite a steal. You may want to buy a Mic Boom as well, this is the one I have. It gets the job done, for cheap.

For editing, I use Sony Vegas Pro 14. This program is quite powerful, but may take sume time to learn, although it is quite intuitive. Now, it is quite expensive, but I got mine through, ways...

If you'd like some channel art, I can do that for free. Here is some of my past work.

Additionally, if you'd like I can edit a video or two for you. I know that it'd be like "send a video of my son to some stranger on the internet?" so I don't really mind what happens either way, I just feel like helping out, is all. You can find my part work here

u/xAgee_Flame · 1 pointr/makinghiphop

This is what I use to get the Yeti upside down, it connects to things like desks, or in my case, a wood piece inside of the wardrobe. You may need to get something longer to accommodate your height (Unless you have some place higher than your waist to connect it). If you get it, I'll tell you how to connect it to the Yeti. That may be what you need, if not, go get an adjustable mic stand. Trust me, you feel more confident when you're comfortable standing in front of a stand, and it's harder to breath when recording sitting down.

btw I'm 6 years younger than you, I'm basically a kid in comparison to a crapload on this sub, yuh damn oldheads!

u/CloudDrone · 1 pointr/starcitizen

Luckily for you, an affordable and decent quality solution to that problem can be yours for the very low price of $17.81.

Read the reviews if you have doubts of its build quality.

For an additional 8 dollars, you can get yourself a pop filter, which will prevent you from getting those really loud plosives right in your friends ears every time you say "penny pipers party pad proved passable." With the mic up close.

You don't need the mic to be 2-4 inches from your mouth. That's just the sweet spot for the mic. It will be miles above what you have to keep it at about 6 inches.

I'm being persistent here, not to be a dick, but because it won't be hard to get your audio quality miles ahead of where it is with practically zero effort.

It's a Neewer arm from amazon

u/jrizz43 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

I have never owned an XLR mic but when I researched, everyone says XLR is better. I don't know about that but the at2020 is a great microphone especially for $20. If you can get a power supply and mixer and stay under the price of the yeti, I would do that. BUT the Yeti, which I have, is great in its own right. Super easy, USB, plug and go. As far as the arm, you don't need it but it is a great upgrade. I got this and it works perfectly fine.

It is nice to have the mic off of your desk and easily out of your face if it is on the arm, for that price, it's a no brainer.

u/dreadul · 1 pointr/Twitch

Hi. Can any standard arm stand such as this support/fit the Samson?

u/heme1 · 1 pointr/microphones

I use the NEEWER arm, it's not the best, but it was pretty cheap when I bought it. The only issue I have with it is that the joint/end of the arm that holds the mic is really weak, it just droops down and you can't adjust it because its not strong enough to support the yeti's weight. Still works out fine, though.

If you buy it, you're really going to want to buy a shockmount for it too. Most people switch from the stand to an arm to get rid of the vibration sounds whenever you do something on your desk. Even when switching to the arm only, people could still hear if I rubbed my desk or anything.

u/JohanGB · 1 pointr/podcasts

What about this boom arm? And you'd go with a windscreen instead of a pop filter? Also, how much more do you recommend the 2005 over the 2100?

u/Jankmaster88 · 1 pointr/Twitch

I have the best seller desk stand from Amazon. It's a nice stand but sometimes I wish I just bought a standalone one as finding a good place to anchor it on my desk has been difficult.

u/mhynlo · 1 pointr/Twitch

I was having getting the right sound with the mic in front of my keyboard. I was picking up the speakers and too much of the background noise.

I ended up getting a stand with a spider holder to suppress some of the noise.

Looks something like this:

u/Gypsyfly · 1 pointr/Twitch

I use the Blue Snowball with this boom arm attached to my second desk that my tower sits on:

And this pop filter:

The pop filter is flexible so gives a little I just secured it to the boom arm with velcro and black bands.

The Snowball is just fine if you are on a budget and what something that sounds clean. I use it for streaming and Youtube vids. It does tend to pick up my keyboard, but I have a mechanical keyboard so that's gonna happen lol.

I used this video as a reference and you can also hear the quality of the mic:

u/FinalBossDad · 1 pointr/SRSGaming

I picked up:

  • Dynamic Mic

  • Headphones

  • Boom arm

    They are all working great so far. The headphones are a lot louder than I expected, but are also open air so I can hear other stuff going on in my house. This makes my wife a lot happier than my old pair of closed cups :)

    The only drawback to the dynamic mic I've seen so far is that I have to be VERY close to it or my voice volume drops considerably. I guess that is just a "feature" of that type of mic to prevent picking up noises it isn't supposed to be. I set up my boom arm to shove it literally into my face, an inch from my mouth while I am sitting back in my chair to play the games.
u/SyndicusX · 1 pointr/battlestations

Kinda late but I recently got this mic arm. It does the job just fine in my opinion. Just a suggestion.

u/Scooba6369 · 1 pointr/OverwatchUniversity

Nothing super special. Just wanted the mic to be off the desk and easily put out of the way when not in use.

u/DaniSpooks · 1 pointr/letsplay



I've heard good things about both, I have a blue yet I and didn't want to reuse it to a 20 dollar boom arm, you can even use the yet I on the rode with the provided adapter, but I'd recommend getting a shock mount at some point

u/DontCheckMyKD · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

This and this is what i bought when i got my snowball several years ago.

u/supermonkeyball64 · 1 pointr/battlestations

Hmm. I bought this adapter and this mount and it still did not fit tight enough where it didn't eventually slide off.

u/Jasonsstatus · 1 pointr/podcasts

I use a few of this style from Amazon, they're pretty cheaply made but they work just fine! You'll probably have to tighten some screws and such but they're quiet and less than $15 haha

u/ARCFXX · 1 pointr/mechanicalheadpens

The Neewer, for a cheap arm, it's pretty good.

u/adamdevigili · 1 pointr/battlestations

It is this. Nothing special but it does what I want of it. It is attached to the monitor mount.

u/kirolm · 1 pointr/letsplay

I got this.

u/-Diabolik- · 1 pointr/battlestations

This guy -

Cheap and works perfect for the yeti. Not sure why some folks on amazon says it doesn't. It more than hold its weight along with the shock mount and poppy filter.

u/ZeroTylersGiven · 1 pointr/battlestations some setup is required, you have to unscrew the holder and flip it, it’s weird

u/wolf39us · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Well personally I use the following:

u/Trav_X · 1 pointr/battlestations

is it this one? did you need any adapter or anything to fit the blue snowball on?

u/16919201080 · 1 pointr/bapcsalescanada

It looks almost identical to this one that I'm using right now for my blue yeti. I've had it for about half a year now and I definitely want to get a nicer mic stand for it because the current one has started to bend and not support it correctly. It wasn't made for the yeti but people have still used it without issues so YMMV.

u/Jasonium · 1 pointr/battlestations

I use the same mic and have it on a cheap scissor arm and it works great. It picks up a lot of background noise but you can solve all those issues with a noise gate and filters. I also taped a piece of cardboard over the red LED.

u/allWoundUp357 · 1 pointr/letsplay

This is the boom I'm using attached right to my desk. I'm not sure what the exact specs are for the Podcaster, but if you've got a shock mount it should be able to attach it to the boom. A word of warning: a lot of the reviews on the page say something about it not working with microphone X but 99% of these claims are from people who couldn't take the 3 seconds it requires to look at the clip and remove the insert (the part that you'll actually use to screw into the mic).

u/Rednys · 1 pointr/Pure

Haven't used the Zalman mic so I'm wondering what kind of range it has on it. If they pick up decent sound from about a foot away you could try a mic stand like this. It's a bit much just to attach a small mic sure but if your Zalman mic is toast there are a number of cheap condenser microphones out there.

u/GamingJay · 1 pointr/letsplay

You could look into getting a microphone boom arm like this

I can't necessarily recommend this one specifically (it was just the first that came up for me) but the nice thing about a boom arm is you can adjust the location of the mic so that it's in a comfortable position for you and your friend. That might be the cheapest way to place a mic for the two of you while at the same time keeping your setup quite simple

u/Billy_Sanderson · 1 pointr/buildapc

It's fantastic. Here's a short soundcloud I just recorded of what it sounds like:

Here's a video of the Neewer stand/arm in action:

Here's a link to the arm on amazon:

(If you buy the stand, you need to screw off the black plastic bracket off the included stand and insert it into the base of the snowball mic in order to connect it to the arm. There are videos of this done on youtube if you can't figure it out)

u/Sharpxe · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

but if you have noise gate + other good audio in general, you won't notice it in stream. Not worth getting the $99 one over this one.

u/swagduck69 · 1 pointr/microphones

Hey, i wan't to get a new mic and i selected the MXL 770. Will it work with BEHRINGER U-PHORIA UM2? Will it fit into this microphone stand? Also, i can connect my headphones to the audio interface, right (I heard that output audio sounds better if you have an audio interface)? I would use the mic for chatting with my mates on Discord and gaming.

u/Mebbwebb · 1 pointr/nvidia

I have this one and its not the same one.

His is more like this one with the tightening mechanism at the top

The one I have does not support heavier mics like the yeti unless you jerry rig it somehow.

u/Cruizyy · 1 pointr/nvidia
u/squary93 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

i can't really tell by the pictures alone but the mic stand doesn't seem to be really efficent.
Replacing it with one that hangs on the desk itself would be a better option i'd say. (Something like that (ofc you would pick one that is compatible to your mic))

Also your xbox one doesn't really need to be on the desk itself as i see it. It would make more sense to have it next to the printer and put the pencils, router and lamp on the desk where its more accesable.

u/chaon93 · 1 pointr/Twitch

Your mic has the 5/8 screw mount, right? says in reviews that it now includes the adapter for the yeti despite the description, look through the reviews and see if you feel its adequate. Otherwise just keep an eye on reviews in general on mic arms, the yeti is so common that its been tried with most arms.

u/gschmitt8656 · 1 pointr/Twitch

I use a yeti as well, and I get what you're saying. The way I fixed it was by getting a boom arm that I can attach to my desk and moving the mic close to my mouth and turning the gain down on it. (That's the top knob on the back of the microphone)

Here's the mic arm I got for dirt cheap on Amazon:

u/Remuma · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

If your looking for the best sound quality but isn't that convenient, I would consider looking into getting a mic that sits on your desk.

I personally have the Behringer c-1u condenser microphone. It fairly cheap, sounds really good plus it's 'plug and play'.

Pair that with a cheap scissor arm and a pop filter and you have your self a good setup.

But if your looking for something easy, just go for the modmic.

u/skylabgaming · 1 pointr/letsplay

The blue snowball is honestly a decent little mic for starting off. You're not going to see a whole lot more options that are WAY better for $60. The snowball is right around $50 itself. Check out the wiki from the sidebar for suggestions. AT2020 is pretty nice imo.

The larger suggestion I have would be a arm stand. The neewer stand is cheap but does the job. I would instead invest some time into learning audacity and your mic settings as completely as you can before buying a new mic.

u/userrnam · 1 pointr/Twitch

I use this for my AT2020 and have yet to get a pop filter. I use an arm because I have no space on my desk to mount a stand, so it's really up to you. I do hear that the Yeti is really heavy and this cheap arm may not support it very well.

u/Obscure_Username_ · 1 pointr/letsplay

Definitely go with something XLR based, since USB usually can't offer the same quality at the same price (even for a whole setup.)

Though I say that ATR2100 is something I keep recommending because it is both XLR and USB, and has very good quality (per quick youtube search) for the price. It's also a dynamic microphone, so it will pick up less background noise and other things dynamic mics do.

As for a stand I have been using this boom arm for almost two years, and have absolutely no issues with it except for a minor squeak when putting it away (not really an issue you're going to have if you're using it) and as much as people like them, pop filters are not really neccisary, just talk with the mic a bit to the side and you're fine (don't waste the $8 I did).

All in all both the atr2100 and the stand will run you about $100, and it is pretty damn good quality for that price.

I would reccomend an XLR interface in the future though, since they do live mixing, built in EQ, better gain control, better sound quality, and a built in DAC for your headphones, but that's around $50-$80 for either of my decent interface choices: the Q802USB Which I am currently using, or a Q502USB which If it's anything like the 802 is cheaper and just as good (albiet with less inputs, but you probably don't need 8 inputs).

u/Floridacracker720 · 1 pointr/Twitch

Cheap Expensive I know for a fact the cheaper one works im using it rite now good one to start off with.

u/NeverDot · 1 pointr/NewTubers

I used the provided stand for a bit. It's serviceable, the main problem being the base needs to be where the mic is, which is often where your keyboard is too. I just got a NEEWER mic stand which works with the Blue Snowball and it's awesome. Super cheap too! When you look at it, it doesn't seem to be compatible, but the mic holder can be unscrewed and the base can be further unscrewed again to reveal the connector for the Snowball.

u/WonDahMan · 1 pointr/buildapc

If you're spending less than $40-50 on a mic for recording (im guessing for youtube?) then you might want to invest in a better mic setup. You can get something like an Audio Technica AT2020 XLR Microphone and a USB Audio DAC to plug it into, with a Mic Stand to hold it, it's very expensive but it will 100% fix your problem. This is what most professional youtubers use.

You could try the Asus xonar Card i mentioned, i've heard good reviews on it but i'm not certain it will fix your problem.

u/HeroDanny · 1 pointr/letsplay

This is the boom stand I have now I'm not crazy about it and won't mind buying another one if need be.

We can pretty much just throw my $200 budget away since I feel committed to spend more now. Which is fine to be honest, I just threw a number out there, wasn't really concerned about the money, not looking to spend a fortune though lol :) Besides I'd rather do it right and buy once, then have to worry about "upgrading" in a few years.

I am not dead set on an SM58, It just seems like a solid mic for the money.

u/Leov2 · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

As much as I'd like to trash Blue because minimum wage high school version of myself bought a Yeti and Blue's own shock mount two years ago, only for the shock mount to be completely incompatible with the Yeti (and the shock mount broke and I wasn't refunded)... It works just fine with this cheap arm from Amazon.

Here's a picture, it holds fine. So you don't need a $100 or more boom arm from Rode or something to handle this thing. I will agree wholeheartedly however that it's heavy, clunky and the stand is just too spacious when compared to the competition but everybody's tastes are different. Some people want all that mass and size.

u/HappyMuffinz · 1 pointr/battlestations

This is what I'm using.

u/nubyplays · 1 pointr/letsplay

As someone who has done this with a desk clamp before, be careful because at least some Blue Yeti mics have a screw-in (whatever it is called) area that is larger than the standard. I ended up having to get plumber's tape to put over the screw on the clamp to make it larger for the blue yeti (though it did fall off at least once, a second application helped hold it secure for several months til I took it down recently).

For reference, I believe the clamp I got was this:

u/thefrencharmy · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Use one of these to hold the mic at your chin level when gaming, and swivel away when not using.

u/kyleblane · 1 pointr/letsplay
u/Doppelhurensohn · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

It's 13 bucks so it's not the best thing in the world, but I have a snowball that actually screws in directly to the arm so it works great for me!

u/linke92 · 1 pointr/battlestations

This one? Does it work well? Is it clunky at all?

u/Pineapple_Rocketship · 1 pointr/Twitch

I have this and it doesn't wobble unless I move it and it's loosened. Very sturdy and has a screw extension so it can fit more than one size. I use it with my Samson meteor mic. Best for the money!

u/LindsanX · 1 pointr/Twitch

The ATR2100-USB would be my pick. Keep in mind that since it is a Dynamic mic you have to keep it somewhat near your mouth. A cheap boom arm would do the trick

u/augustinecpu · 1 pointr/battlestations

Do yourself a favor and order something like this

Nice setup though.

u/rek1aimer · 1 pointr/battlestations

It's this one here

u/DontTakeMyNoise · 1 pointr/buildapc

If I were you, I might do it a little differently.

Steelseries makes good keyboards and they're very customizable. r/mechanicalkeyboards might throw a hissy fit at me for saying that, but they're good all around boards. Every key can be customized with macros and stuff if he so chooses, right in the Steelseries software. No need to mess around with AHK.

Mice are a very personal thing. Does he know you're getting him PC peripherals for Christmas? If so, knowing the size of his hand, and if possible, how he grips a mouse would be super helpful. I spend a shameful amount of time on r/mousereview and would love to help you out! The Xtrfy M4 is very popular at the moment if he has medium or small hands. Right here you can see how to measure hand size properly.

If you can't get a precise measurement or grip style that's fine - could you maybe compare his hand to yours (a simple "Hey, which one of us has bigger hands?" should do), measure yours, and estimate roughly how different they are.

If he's got the space for a setup, he'd be much better off with a dedicated set of headphones and a dedicated microphone than with a headset, and it'd be cheaper too! I personally recommend the Superlux 668B headphones with a set of replacement earpads (these ones are amazing, but these ones are still very good while being much cheaper). Then grab yourself a Fifine microphone and something cheap to hold it and you've saved yourself a lot of money while getting him a much better product!

Oh, those headphones will let in a fair amount of background noise, and they'll leak a bit of the sound playing through them. If your house/apartment is often loud or you share a space and don't want to hear his games, these Takstars are shockingly good for the price. If you wanna save a few bucks and not go for a separate microphone, this CM headset is based off them but has an attached mic!

Good luck and I hope he enjoys his gift! Feel free to ask any questions you've got, PM if you want :)

u/LoneKrafayis · 1 pointr/buildapcforme

You are welcome! LMK if you need any more help

The VR headsets have microphones, but at the desktop, you will need the microphone. I am happy to have the microphone between my hands, but some like a microphone boom.

u/RC531976 · 1 pointr/audio

If you are going "old-school" with a microphone like that, then at least use an "articulated arm" microphone stand to place and keep the microphone in a proper position close to your mouth. And clamp you head in a position to maintain the position of the microphone vs. your mouth.

Example stand:

I would rather use a mic that stays in the right place as I move around. I really like my Logitech H800 Bluetooth wireless headset with mic. I have one at home, one in my car, and one in the office.

u/phillldown · 1 pointr/battlestations

No worries, it was a really cheap one I got from amazon but it works well for me. Here’s a link:

u/spatosmg · 1 pointr/Twitch

it's 100$ more then the AT2020 USB

your old PC build is 1703$ (thats with out the keyboard and mouse)

the new one is 1558$.

you are saving 145$. If you get the AT2035 bundle and the mic stand you pay 100$ more then the AT2020 usb version

which in general still saves you 45$ (in theroy)

I'd defently go for it if you where already willing to spend 150$ more

(also even if you get the AT2035 or just the AT2020 please check out getting a foam filter for one of them. The AT2035 will need to get a big foam wind filter then the AT2020 and it will improve sound drastically)

u/Shake_Oh · 1 pointr/microphones

I'm lost.

> I've realized after some time that it's really impractical for me. It's so huge it's blocking part of my screen and keyboard

So it being on a desk stand doesn't work in your use case? No worries, it doesn't work for almost anyones.

> So I wanted to get a foam windscreen instead.

Why would a windscreen solve anything? Windscreens will only deaden sounds from the mic moving around or you blowing air into it. A windscreen won't help with the problem mentioned above at all.

However if you are actually in need of a windscreen, get a pop filter instead. They double as a windscreen and will also help improve resistance to sibilance and pops (S, T, B, P sounds etc). Here are a few examples: $7, $15, $45. The $15 looks really good, $7 one also looks fine.

If you issue is actually the size and position of the mic then you want a scissor/desk mount arm. Here are a few examples: $15, $20, $100. Go for the $20 arm if you are looking for something affordable but reasonable. The $100, Rode PSA-1, is a great arm I have been using it for the last 5 years and its a great investment.

u/Kryt0s · 1 pointr/Twitch

I went with a really cheap one. Sure, there are better ones out there but so far it has been working great and not giving me any problems.

u/danasdfasdf · 1 pointr/battlestations

I use this

u/nshelton5683 · 1 pointr/Twitch

The AT2020 is a great mic, but it can pickup some vibrations without a shock mount, but you can fight a lot of that with a compressor or a noise gate in OBS. If you are wanting to go a tad cheaper on the mic, but still have good audio, you can go with the Blue Snowball ICE. Its a very solid mic for $50 although its USB, not XLR. The snowball is also driverless so you can use it on your console for party chat too. Also, if you are at a desk, this mic arm is rather nice and its going for $14. I use it for my Razer Seiren Pro (which is hefty) so it can hold a lot of weight and not droop.

As for what you have listed specifically, This is great for an "intro to great audio" setup. Also on what Vacancygames says about condenser mics, 100% true, but OBS has a build in background noise suppressor you can find in the audio settings. It works wonders for my Seiren which picks up every...little...thing...

u/NatesV · 1 pointr/buildapc

Okay maybe not directly blocking but can it be distracting. Also I would use something like this. But then I suppose it depends person to person if it would advert their attention... Anyways thanks.

u/SFischer4121 · 1 pointr/letsplay

If you don't want to spend the money on the PSA1, you can always go for the step down and get the NEEWER Suspension Arm. I currently use this and love it! I simply attach it at the front of my desk, and if I need to move it I can simply unscrew it and rotate it then re-secure it. Great arm for a solid price!

NEEWER Microphone Suspension Boom Scissor Arm Stand

u/Tokki88 · 1 pointr/Twitch

I can't help you with a recommendation on mic as I'll be looking to replace my Yeti but I can warn you the Yeti picks up on a lot of noise. To get my audio close to what I wanted it at I had to set up some sound editing software and run a virtual audio cable through it. Then I had my friend who knows a bit more about audio set up some filters to clean up background noise/echo/audio levels. From what I hear dynamic mics are much better for picking up your voice without pulling everything else in the neighborhood.

As far as arms go I use:

its cheap and it gets the job done. About the length of an arm shoulder to hand. Easy to set up and I couldn't be happier. I put it on the side of my desk and it lets me suspend my mic right out of the view of the camera but near my face. With the default stand I couldn't have my mic on my desk otherwise it would shake and create all kinds of loud noises.

I’d probably recommend the Rode arm instead even though it’s more money. I heard that arm is much stronger and I’m probably going to pull the trigger on that shortly.

Its this one NEEWER Adjustable Microphone Suspension Boom Scissor Arm Stand, Compact Mic Stand Made of Durable Steel for Radio Broadcasting Studio, Voice-Over Sound Studio, Stages, and TV Stations

I have it clipped ok the back of the dual monitor stand

u/Bakenators · 1 pointr/letsplay

I will warn you not to get a microphone stand that holds less than 1.2 lbs (The yeti's weight). I'd recommend something that holds 3+ pounds at LEAST.

This Neewer boom arm is perhaps the one he's talking about, and if it is, it says specifically on the page that it is NOT suitable for the blue yeti. If you bought this one, you're gonna be dealing with sag problems i.e. any bump, movement or otherwise on whatever it's clamped to, the boom arm will drift and fall under the yeti's weight.

Again, something that can hold 3+ pounds is your safest bet.

Also, shock mounts are pretty simple and easy to make yourself! There are plenty of tutorials on Youtube on how make your own shock mount, don't buy one if you don't have the money!

Good luck!!

I have this one, it is cheap, and I pulled the springs off of it, but it holds my Yeti just fine.

edit : I also ordered this because the plastic adapter that came with it stripped out instantly.

u/Acknown3 · 1 pointr/headphones

The Zalman isn't having issues with static interference; it's just a crappy mic.

The GoMic sounds like a much more expensive mic than what it actually is, but the clip isn't anywhere near wide enough to clip onto any part of my desk or monitor. I would suggest buying a $15-$20 boom arm like this and screwing the GoMic on that. It's no Heil HB-1 but it's $55 cheaper. Plus you can use that with any future XLR / USB Cardioid or dynamic mic later.

I've never heard of Superlux making microphones before. Are there any comparisons to AT, Shure, MXL, etc.?

I have this one, and for the cheap price it is, it gets the job done

u/Modern_O · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

It supports a Blue Yeti Mic so it is strong. It is a heavily budget mic arm but I think it’s really good for $13. It doesn’t have huge mobility, and as good looking but $13 can’t go wrong. Only thing to mention is make sure you check if it supports the width of your desk/table.

Oh, gotcha. I don't know about compatibility with blue yeti, I guess that's something either someone else can give you an answer for or you can research some more.

My mic is an ATR2500 USB:

The boom stand I'm using is a cheap NEEWER stand:
It works pretty well for the price.

u/kickedtripod · 1 pointr/podcasting

Gaming headsets RARELY have a good sound signature so broadcast headphones are the next step. The AT BPHS-1, as stated elsewhere, is a solid entry, but it's $200 - which can be expensive and for that money you can get a pretty great usb mic like the AT2020, or even less expensive the AT2100.
If it must be a headset and you don't want to get a broadcasting headset (for price or other reasons), Sennheiser makes pretty decent headsets with decent microphones.


But you can get this microphone and this boom stand for less than half the price and, in my experience, a far superior sound.

u/Swaggots_everywhere · 1 pointr/battlestations

[NEEWER Microphone Suspension Boom Scissor Arm Stand] ( It comes with a plastic adapter, but you may want to buy a metal one as the plastic one strips out easily.

u/mattinm · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

NEEWER scissor arm:

I'm using the mic holder that came with the arm (the mic is just a little fatter than the holder, but fits just fine). Scissor arm does a really, really good job with this mic, and can rotate and well as scissor.

u/kicgaming · 1 pointr/letsplay

I have an AT2020USB sitting on the floor (next to a Rode Podcaster). Good mic. Sounds good. Still a condenser and still sensitive. Still better choices to be found that'll work for most and sound better.

I generally avoid everything Alesis and Behringer because they're cheap. Not just in price, but in components, quality, reliability, and sound... generally speaking. That said, I have no experience with that particular audio interface. The Focusrite Scarlett Solo comes well reviewed at around the same price (I think?). Steinberg also has an interface around the same price. If you're looking more for a mixer (that's what the Alesis is), then I'd suggest looking at a Mackie or Yamaha mixer. Chances are, you're going to be looking a lot more money than the Alesis, but you're getting superior preamps and overall better hardware and reliability. Just be careful to get one that's USB unless you want to go analog everything (if you're not an audio engineer with a high end sound card, don't).

Whether you need a mixer or an audio interface comes down to what you're going to be doing. The mixer can be helpful for effects, additional EQ, monitoring, multiple inputs, etc., but it's not necessary in most instances. For most, an audio interface with one or two inputs is sufficient--you can always upgrade later and sell the interface on Ebay (or some such) because they're always in demand.

Regarding stands, I use a Rode PSA1 and have no qualms recommending it, but it's somewhat pricey. If you need cheaper, the Neewer arm has good reviews, but I have no feedback regarding it. Pretty sure several people here use and like the Neewer arm.

For a pop filter, anything, really, is fine. Don't worry about metal ones or filters made of exotic materials--any cheap nylon screen works as well as anything else. You likely won't need a windsock, but you can find plenty of those on the cheap as well. (I suppose you could go with just windsock or just filter, but either should be fine--I just prefer a pop filter to a sock.) For the XLR cable, meh... not Monster? I use these--they're nothing special, just cables. Work/sound fine.

It's easy to spend a lot of money on this stuff, but if you have patience and time, you can save a lot by buying used. Most of my mics are used and they work perfectly well--generally speaking, people take care of those (and it's obvious when they don't).

u/SaaiTV · 1 pointr/Twitch

Unless you have the need for an audio interface then I'd recommend going for the USB version of the microphone. It's a bit more expensive than the standard AT2020 but you make up for it by not having to purchase an audio-interface/XLR2USB converter.

I have an AT2020USB+ and have been using this mic stand without any issues.

I also recommend picking up a pop-filter, they are pretty cheap.

u/glenmoyes · 1 pointr/EliteDangerous

Shure PG58 Mic $59. Good cheap mic that I used for years until I retired it for no reason other than I wanted two mics and could afford a more expensive one.

Behringer XENYX 502 Mixer $45. Really all you need this from is the preamp, but for the price it's cheaper than any decent stand-alone preamp I've seen. As a bonus you get a mixer (!) so you can record your bluegrass band...or...something. Also the EQ for the mic is a bonus I guess, not that your speech recognition will care. The Shure PG58 is a little bassy though, so you can use the EQ to tone that down a bit.

Stereo 1/4" TRS to Stereo 1/8" TRS cable $6. Plug this into the headphone jack on the mixer and the other end into the microphone jack on your soundcard. Then turn the 10db boost off on your soundcard. (FYI if you end up getting this, the only volume knobs you need to worry about is the upper-left white knob for the mic gain, the lower-left one for the channel volume, the Phones knob (which is your output) and the Main Mix knob. All those together will all affect the volume of what you hear going out.)

Microphone Scissor Arm Stand $16. I don't personally own this one but it comes with the necessary mic clip holder for a dynamic mic (most other stands of this type only come with the gear to hold the larger condenser mics). Also it's a lot cheaper that other stands, which means the cable in it is probably cheap, and some reviewers say the stand doesn't hold up the weight very well. This is the one I own but I don't use the shockmount that it came with. You'll need something like this to hold your dynamic mic. So that route would be $58 total for a better stand. Anyway, good news with either of those stands is the XLR to XLR cable is included, which you'll need to connect your mic to your mixer/preamp.

So in total for the mic, preamp, cable, and desk stand you are looking at $126 or $168 for a better stand and XLR cable.

I'm sure all of these products I linked to on Zzounds are available at Amazon too. I was just lazy and found the ones that were on my blog/browser history. It also reflects where I got them. Erm, except for the Mixer; I got that at my local Guitar Center because it was the same price.

u/ItsKilovex · 1 pointr/Twitch

You should purchase a microphone mount and/or a windscreen.

u/ythmevge · 1 pointr/letsplay

I don't have any experience with that particular stand.

I faced the same problem as you, except I got rid of the included stand and switched to a OnStage Desktop stand almost right away.

Right now my solution has been similar to that stand except it is all contained on my desktop. I have a Frankenstien of a Mic Stand right now made up of three different OnStage stands. (It works but I wouldn't recommend going that route)

The construction of OnStage stands have been good for me, and I have no complaints with them. If you have the space for that stand it will do what you want.

Another option apart from using a Boom is to use a Scissor Arm, but they have their own requirements.

I do not have a scissor arm, but I have seen a review with someone using a Blue Yeti mounted on that same arm. So it should be fine for the Snowball.

u/learnedmoose · 1 pointr/PartneredYoutube

Total slightly over $50 but the best budget mic I've tried for podcast/Voiceover/live stream is the CAD U37 USB Studio Condenser Recording Microphone $50

Pair that with a cheap stand like NEEWER Adjustable Microphone Suspension Boom Scissor Arm Stand, Compact Mic Stand Made of Durable Steel for Radio Broadcasting Studio, Voice-Over Sound Studio, Stages, and TV Stations and you're in business.

I've used my CAD since 2013 and it's been solid. Recently I tried a Blue Snowball since it's always been rated so well and I ended up returning it. Did such a bad job picking up voice I had to have my mouth within a few inches unless I wanted to adjust the audio in post and it popped like heck without a filter. Never had those problems with the CAD - it's gain is pretty consistent from a foot or two away.

u/ImmortalCockroach · 1 pointr/Twitch

I use this arm and have this shock mount attached

u/ZerglotMarine · 1 pointr/Twitch

Go with the classic Shure SM58. Use a bit of compression so it brings your speaking voice up and your shouting voice down. Use a boom stand like this to mount it. Dynamic mics don't work very well when they are far from the sound source so make sure the mic is close enough and use a windscreen like this one.

u/somatherapy · 1 pointr/podcasts

Something like this might make your life easier:

Most mic threads are standardized, so yours should be compatible. This will let you position it pretty much exactly where your want it.

u/Xenethra · 1 pointr/letsplay

Neewer Mic Stand
$15 ish

AT2020 $88

Scarlett Solo $100

Hosa XLR cable $12

This is almost identical to what I used for a while, besides us having a gen 1 2i2 instead of a gen 2 solo. You can upgrade the microphone down the line without upgrading the interface.

Whether or not you can get free shipping will probably impact shipping a lot, we have prime so I'm not sure how much shipping will cost.

I would recommend you to try the stuff out before buying audio equipment if possible. I feel like with this much money you shouldn't leave anything to a leap of faith, plus what mic suits my voice can be a lot different than what suits yours.

Edit: I forgot to mention: I hate the Neewer stand, but I can't possibly recommend the Rode PSA1 to someone with a 200-300 budget.

The mount is really great for $20.

u/AlduinDoesGaming · 1 pointr/letsplay

My current microphone is a Neewer NW-800 with a pop filter, stand, power supply, & shock mount. In total, around 100 dollars (excluding shipping and the wire/adapter)
Boom Arm,
Pop Filter,
Power Supply,
I got mine for around 65 because the mic was on sale, so I would wait until it goes on sale again to be a bit more affordable.

PS: If you want to connect this mic to the PS4, I recommend these two:
Wire, Adapter

Yes, your specs are good enough for an LP series. I agree with Pyroraptor (Audacity, OBS Studio/Standard OBS, Gimp, I use Lightworks, but you could use HitFilm. The webcam seems pretty nice. Just remember that the Neweer is a condenser mic, meaning it will pick up almost anything, so it would be a good idea to either remove any potential background noise in Audacity or use a noise removal program. I would focus on the mic and software first, webcam later. Hope this helps! -Alduin

u/Kroteux · 1 pointr/letsplay

I'd recommend the CAD U1. Consider getting a floor (won't pick up vibrations from the keyboard, mouse, etc on your desk) or desk stand since you're going to need to be speaking closer to the mic due to it being a dynamic mic which aren't as sensitive to sound as condenser mics.

u/e86m · 1 pointr/buildapc

Definitely these - they make a large difference:

Monitor mounts - frees up a bunch of desk space and lets you tilt/rotate/move closer etc

Large mouse mat - much better than having to line up your keyboard or be restricted to a small pad

Microphone boom arm - cheap and gets the mic up off the desk freeing up space. Pair this with a pop filter and it even looks ok

Then obviously the main peripherals like audio, kb/m, monitors, desk, chair, etc

something like this:

you may have seen some streamers using something like it. Helps with preventing vibrations from things such as tapping on desk or keyboard presses from being translated to the mic. The samson meteor and blue yeti come with or have built in stands/legs. Not as good, but more convenient.

u/VerosHD · 1 pointr/battlestations

You can find it right here. I wouldn't recommend it for a large desk though, as it does not extend too large. My desk is a 74 inch countertop so it doesn't exactly work here. I'd definitely recommend the Rode PSA-1 boom arm if you have a large desk, although it's quite pricey.

u/TheSunnyDeeeeeee · 0 pointsr/podcasting

I'm a big fan of the Neewer clamp stand. I've been using it for about a year now on my podcast and it's been great. Really inexpensive, but pretty dang sturdy. Just best to have a shockmount, or be careful not to bump your desk a whole lot to avoid noise in the mic (though that's fairly true of all desktop mic stands)
