These are the best YouTube microphones on the market right now.
YouTubing is awesome and sometimes you get a channel that has awesome content and great visuals, but is lacking in the audio department. A YouTube channel is constantly being judged by everyone who is watching it, so you need the best YouTube microphones for the best audio quality.
There is no reason to get a dislike button hit just because your voice sounds a little raspy! I decided to compile a list of the best YouTube microphones that can be used to for voiceover work with videos.
I also realize that money can be a factor when investing in a microphone, so I made sure that no microphone on this list is over $200 USD. While there are plenty of other microphones out there that are of equal quality, I narrowed a huge list down to the five best YouTube microphones.
5. Audio Technica AT2035 XLR Condenser Microphone
The first one on the list has been rated very highly for people who want to do any type of singing.
While this microphone picks up a lot of background sound, as long as you are in some type of quiet, studio setting, you shouldn’t have an issue.
4. Blue Yeti
Another great, affordable microphone, with a ton of positive reviews. Some versions come with additional accessories that help with the recording process.
It looks like this microphone is best used for the newcomer to podcasting.
3. Rode VideoMic Pro Compact VMP Shotgun Microphone
Shotgun microphones are best used when speaking directly into them. This specific microphone is compact, which is nice if you are the traveling type, and need the room in your carry on.
It also does a great job of cutting down on wind when used outside.
2. Shure PG27 USB Condenser Microphone
It may not be the best looking microphone on the market, but it has it where it counts. The Shure also does a great job at eliminating exterior sounds, including light hissing and pop noises.
1. AKG Perception 420 Prof. XLR Condenser Mic
It was tough to find a negative comment about this microphone. And for under $200, that’s a big deal.
A lot of people claim this microphone produces a higher quality sound than some other microphones they paid over $500 for. All around, it’s high quality microphone that produces excellent sound.

YouTube is great way to make some extra money on the side, if you know what you are doing. If your content is good and your video is of high quality, you should be able to attract a lot of subscribers.
However, audio quality is just as important, and I hope this list helps you get the best voice work onto your channel. Now get out there and start making those videos!
