Why Audio wins and the best microphone options to choose from

People are incredibly forgiving when your video isn't perfect. But, when your audio is subpar, it's distracting for the listener and often leads to frustration. It becomes difficult to focus on the content if the sound is not clear and balanced. So, if you're contemplating between investing in a better camera or improving your microphone setup, my advice will be to prioritize your microphone first.

"But which microphone should I choose?"

I'm glad you're asking, and I'm here to help. We will explore three different types or levels of microphones apt for different usage circumstances. A significant determinant of which category a microphone falls under is whether it can be directly connected via USB or requires an XLR cable and another device to connect it to your computer.
