5 Best Microphones for YouTube videos

Comment

When it comes to making good YouTube videos, there should be good quality video and, professional recording and good quality audio. If you buy a good camera, you can record quality videos but what about the sound. Unfortunately, a good camera does not offer good quality sound. But, you have lots of good audio solution. There are lots of good quality microphones that you can use to record good audio.

Microphones come in wide range of pricing. You can buy it for as low as Rs. 1000 and as high as Rs. 1 Lakh. But I have considered the range that is affordable without compromising the quality. I didn’t select the high-cost microphones that can’t be afforded by masses.

Final words

There are many other cheap microphones but you should not go with those. At least have a budget of around Rs. 5000. If you go with cheaper, you will never get good audio. Filtering noise with software always affects the quality. So, always have a microphone that captures less noise and natively record good quality audio. If you are into music, never compromise with microphone’s quality.
