Another question for the day, I'm poor..lol But need a new mic, there is a hissing sound when I record. A Mic headphone combo would be great. I just have a laptop.. I also operate out of my living room so the wife won't go for an elaborate studio setup. I just have to make due with what I can..lol
@adam This is what I have now...been using it for zoom and such since 2019..lol https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000UXZQ42?ref=nb_sb_ss_w_as-reorder-t1_ypp_rep_k0_1_28&&crid=2LRNLDUH69JHF&&sprefix=logitech+usb+headset+and+mic
@nixer Ah yeah. Headset mics are inappropriate for podcasting. The USB cable might be picking up that noise you are hearing.
If someone is seriously interested in trying, this is worth the investment and can probably be resold
@adam @StevenB I have heard good things about the Yeti mics, any experience with those? https://www.amazon.com/Microphone-Recording-Streaming-Podcasting-Adjustable/dp/B00N1YPXW2/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=EMN31VXMA3FU&keywords=yeti+mic&qid=1655309407&sprefix=yeti%2520mic%2Caps%2C100&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExRTFXV1k4Q1ZIRko5JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNzQzMTAxWUYwTE9EWExPSUs3JmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTAyMzQ1MjQzMDk5OEVGWDRTVU5GJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
It was the second mic I used and was really happy with it. 3/4th the price of a yeti, and it’s got usb/xlr for some versatility. The yetis are ok in some uses but if you got an empty room it’s gonna pick up all the echos.
Has anyone else had issues with Windows 10 and USB mics? I have one, and even with the gain turned all the up, the mic levels are super low. Looking into it, apparently Windows 10 did something with their USB mic drivers that created a bunch of issues.
