USB Microphone

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to replace my decade old Logitech USB microphone with a new one, primarily for better sound quality.  Looking at the options out there and whats recommended there are three possibilities, all of which seem like good options,


1) Blue Yeti - http://www.bluemic.com/yeti/

Has a very high rating and is generally recommended wherever I look


2) Audio-Technica AT2020 - http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/wired_mics/a0933a662b5ed0e2/

Similarly to the Yeti, it is high rating and is recommended in a number of places


3) Samson C01U or the newer gen ones - http://www.samsontech.com/samson/products/microphones/usb-microphones/c01u/

An older mic, but it comes up in a number of places


Of these choices or another one, is there a USB microphone to go with that will last and is easy to use?



Went with the Blue Yeti as it seemed to be the most recommended among all the sites I looked at.  At the time, got it for $130 CDN.

I have the blue yeti. its great for $100 but it does pick up every little bit of sound. This can be good depending on what you are doing, but for it was annoying so I stopped using it. If I had to do it over again I would go Audio-Technica. They are number 1 for a reason.
