The best USB microphones

Good content starts at the source. If you want to sound your best to your coworkers, fans, or teammates, the microphone you have built into your headphones, laptop, tablet, or smartphone probably won’t cut it. I’ve spent almost a decade with various USB microphones for podcasting, gaming, and even music recording, and I have to say up front: we live in a golden age of easy-to-use options. Nowadays it is not difficult to find a great microphone with simple software for very little money. So we’ve brought them together! These are the best USB microphones out there.

While you’re at it, be sure to check out our guides on How to Start a Podcast and How to Upgrade Your Home Audio, as well as our lists of the best home office equipment to further equip your space.

Updated May 2024: We’ve added new microphones from AKG, Audio-Technica, and Steelseries.
