What makes a mic good for podcasting? Well, it depends...

It depends. What are you endeavoring to do? In the event that the objective is to impeccably repeat the sound the mic gets, it may be unusable outside of a studio or vocal stall. Some mics are intended for use in a high encompassing clamor condition. What they record sounds quite awful yet it's a minor marvel that they record anything usable in their foreordained condition. 

Mosty, leisure activity podcasters record in a moderately boisterous home condition. A dynamic mic is less inclined to get transient sounds than a condenser and have a tendency to be exceptionally directional importance a ton of the earth gets expelled from the chronicle. The sound is somewhat less unmistakable than with a condenser. 

In the event that you have the ecological sound very much controlled, a condenser, say a medium or huge stomach condenser may be a superior alternative as it will get the full devotion of your voice. Additionally, the feline in the cellar utilizing the litterbox so get the natural sounds close by. 

Most digital recordings toss out the last 80-100 Hz of the chronicle in a high pass channel to dispose of 50-60 Hz murmur and thunder. Almost no human discourse is in this range except if you have a low voice and that being said it doesn't exchange to the listening knowledge well. Comparable for sound over 14 kHz which I likewise discard. Very little point in that mic that can record down to 28 Hz and up to 18 kHz if it's being hurled. 

Costly extensive stomach dynamic mics have the advantages of flow dismissing undesirable sound with a sound more like a condenser. They cost a great deal, however. 

A $100 mic sounds extraordinary for podcasting. There are a few decent ~$50 mics and even $20 can sound fine. You surrender something with the more affordable mics. Taking care of clamor or unusual sound eccentricities. 

You get more predictable sound with higher cost mics. You just show signs of improvement with each level higher you go, however. What's more, truly, a 80% mic is greatly improved than my 12.5 % voice. All more costly mics get are boasting rights. 

On the off chance that you are a make with a profound voice, you should need to take a gander at the recurrence graphs of the mics you are taking a gander at and select one that improves the high nearness run and gentles the low blasting bass. On the off chance that you don't have that bass-overwhelming voice, a mic that improves the low may adjust your voice. 

Ladies now and again have a ton of sibilance in their voices and advantage from a less brilliant mic. 

The genuine answer is to give them a shot or request assessments. Some mics scoop out the 250-500 Hz run which can help with coherence, however a few people lose a ton of their low end along these lines.
