Bro! Thank you so much for introducing this mic! I've been wanting to get rid of my condenser mic but didn't really want to fork up the cash for a shure. THIS MIC SOUNDS PHENOMENAL! I spent the remainder on the legato green screen instead of using my home made PVC pipe rig lol. You truly are the GOAT! Happy streaming everyone!

Quick request since i will be moving from the blue yeticaster to a goxlr with either dynamic mic or condenser mic in the near future. since you have the equipment at the ready is there any chance you could do a video comparing the blue ember condenser running the new nvidia rtx voice ai noise cancelling software and the dynamic pod mic? i love the clarity of the condenser but for obvious reason love the noise isolation of the dynamic. Would love to hear/see if the rtx voice software diminishes the clarity of the condenser mic beyond recoverable levels, while still eliminating the back ground noises. In essence... Giving you the best of both worlds

What about the Samson Q2U or the Audio-Technica ATR2100x (or ATR2100)? They have both USB and XLR. This way you can use USB and once you get bigger as a streaming you can buy a mixer and change to XLR.

I hear the difference in spite of the low eq boost, but I would argue that it's negligible in a streaming context, and is only something I pay attention to as my channel is a pro audio channel. For streaming, podcasting, etc, this mic is going to do well. Save the money on the SM7B, and put the difference toward updating your cpu or internet connection.

Excellent! This is perhaps one of...or the best tutorial I've watched to date on any subject. Perfect amount of detail without showing off unnecessary data prowess lol. Edit cuts appear to be made for editing out uhs and umms vs jump cutting me into a vertigo attack amen! I'm in the market to purchase a mic for youtube or perhaps a podcast and I may be sold on this mic. I'm wondering about this mic vs one I believe is called a Blue Yetti... Once again Thanks for excellence!

I have an EditorsKeys SL300 and one of my biggest issues has been trying to kill background noise and keyboard noises when streaming. Sounds bloody great for vocals and music but it really is a sensitive beast.

If you have a thin high voice like Alpha Gaming, you may need to EQ the PodMic to gain bass in the voice. But if your voice already has bass, you won’t have to EQ the PodMic. It will simply help your voice sound clearer.

for anyone looking to pic this mic up, what he's saying is totally accurate - it doesn't have a massive low-end the way a SM7b does, but you can fix that in either real time via a mixer or in post. I have mine hooked up to a Behringer Q802-Usb mixer with 3 band hardware EQ. added some high/low end, and lowered the mids just a little. when I'm in a discord call and people can't see my mic, I get asked all the time if it's a sm7b just off how it sounds lol it really is a great mic for only $100! and once you tweak it a bit, it's probably one of the best out there imo.

instead of spending $400 on a really good mic spend $100 on a mic that is just as good... THEN spend the rest of the $300 on the Goxlr!!!

It really is strange watching so many videos about "affordable" microphones for beginners or low cost setups , and they all just assume that an audio interface is just available at home. Some people just want to start off with 75-100$ total budget (including cables)

Before you buy a condenser mic think about the summer. Do you use a fan in your room? Don’t get one.... get a dynamic. Unless you’re recording music. Even podcasts I feel like dynamic is more worth. UNLESS you can build a very sound isolated room with no background noise at all.

The Behringer XM8500 seems to be the sleeper pick of all mics. This one defnitely has a fancy look to it, but $77 less money gets you most of the way there as far as sound, and perhaps more if you prefer the warmer sound

Hi there. Love the channel and thanks for all your help, advice and entertainment! Could you help me out, maybe? I have a PodMic and a GoXLR Mini and I am very happy with them, but I'm curious what settings you settled on when using your PodMic and GoXLR Mini?... Cheers.

Question, do you think this if this mic was used three feet from another mic (same type), would there be a lot of issues? Thinking of getting 6 of these for a stream where everyone is around the same table.

I underestimated the power of research, for the cheapest setup get a mic stand of your choice and an XLR to USB cable

Prefer the sm57 with a clown nose muffler: 1/ it doesn't "look" like the sm57 (the way you described the "issue" with live mics for broadcast) 2/ There's a comparison and EQ setting here that basically makes them the same esvid.net/video/v%C3%ADdeo-s372qfTc3-I.html and to top it off you have way more uses for it outside of just broadcast and streaming.

Hey Harris, asked in the discord but figured I could get your input on this one too. So the Rode PodMic has a built in pop filter, is it good enough to discard my current pop filter or should I still use it?

Record your audio and see if you get plosives. If you do, use the pop filter. If you don't, then you don't need it.

He's honest. Yeah expensive was better but not 400 dollars better. And you could fix it with software.

Any 1000 dollar solution for a Twitch streaming microphone is ridiculous. They're watching this on Twitch and ESvid.
