The Best USB Microphones for Home Recording 2018


The Rode NT-USB is a highly versatile side-address microphone designed for capturing superlative vocals and musical performances in addition to spoken applications such as podcasts and voice-overs. Fully compatible with all mainstream recording applications on both Windows and Mac OS based computers as well as any other recording app that accepts an external microphone, the NT-USB's condenser capsule is of the same quality found in studio-grade microphones that are in use by thousands of artists and engineers daily. Ideal for the advanced professional looking for performance packed in a small, uncomplicated package.


Blue Yeti
With three custom condenser capsules and four pattern settings, the Blue Yeti provides sharp and crisp audio recording in almost any situation. Compatible with Windows and Mac, the Yeti operates plug-and-play with no drivers needed for a simple, hassle-free setup. THX certified, it sends incredible audio directly to a computer with a high-quality analog-to-digital converter and boasts incredibly low distortion, high fidelity, and a balanced frequency response. The Yeti’s stylish, retro aesthetic is definitely pleasing to the eyes too. Perfect for the advanced professional looking for something fun and thoroughly dependable to complete the studio or workstation.

Blue Snowball
Touted as the most intuitive USB microphone for any application, the Blue Snowball offers three selectable patterns for sound capture, controlled by a simple 3-position slider on the back that changes it into either cardioid, omni, or cardioid with a -10dB pad. Cardioid is best for speaking directly into the mic, ideal for podcasts, streams, and voice-overs. Omni captures sounds from all directions, such as roundtable discussions or a live-music session with multiple instruments. The Cardioid with -10db pad has reduced sensitivity, useful for capturing the best possible sound in overly loud situations. Very easy to use with no drivers needed, the Blue Snowball offers probably the best sound in its class and is perfect as an upgrade, a logical next step for the beginner looking to up their podcast game to the next level.


Audio Technica ATR2500
Made for podcasting, home studio recording, field recording, and voiceover use, the Audio Technica ATR2500-USB plugs right in via a USB port, and functions seamlessly with any recording software. The ATR2500 is aimed more for use with vocals than instruments, the perfect budget podcasting package. Purists may take issue with audio quality given that the ATR2500 uses USB, but this is not a worry at all as the sound quality is extremely clear, defined and transparent, requiring very little post production cleanup. Perfect for the beginner podcaster looking for something that is rugged and reliable enough for use on the go, but also decent in the studio.
