Microphone Recommendation?

I was wondering if you guys and gals have a microphone to recommend? Nothing too fancy (with a reasonable price) but, with a better sound quality than a headphones mic or an integrated one. I’m thinking about using it for recording more Rackets, or maybe some tutorials in the future.

So, nothing too sophisticated just something:

I recommand this brand “Sennheiser”
I used it 2 times and I’m happy with the headset I got, not sure about an entire microphone.

I personally use this headset (reference= SC 30 USB ML) and I think it’s sufficient for recording rackets or online conferences:

Thanks @emna_ayadi I had headphones from that manufacturer a few years ago and they were quite good, I bet their microphones are too, if they make them - I’ll have to check thanks! Right now I’m using just the generic headphones that came with the laptop and they sound quality could be better I recon.

I’m using a DragonWar headset (got it for free when I bought a PC) but it’s actually quite nice.
It has an extra button to mute yourself, so you don’t have to always click in the UI but you can just press the button on the cord. Also has a button to enable/disabled the Bass in the headset :smiley:

I’m quite happy about it overall, I probably wear it more then 10h a day.

That seems like one fine headset @kristof I had a DragonWar gamming mouse, I got it like maybe 8 years ago and it still works today - even after all those years of regular (ab)use! :grin:

I have the Yeti Blue mic, but my Racket sound quality still is bad.
It’s not the mic, it’s something about Racket too

@maaike.brinkhof I noticed that one is popular with people who make ASMR videos - I watch those in secret, or listen to them, to be more precise. :nerd_face:

what browser are you using to record it? If I use chrome I have much better quality then firefox I noticed.

Ah yeah I’m on Firefox. I ain’t touching Chrome.

I can try Safari to see how it fares!

No shame in ASMR. I’ve been watching/listening to ASMR for 10 years already. It’s really calming and relaxing!

@adystokes Seems like a really popular microphone, and what I’ve seen so far the prices are quite reasonable!
