What microphones do you guys use?
all of mine are really bad, and i'm looking for a new one,
but every time i buy a new one, it's always really bad.
I really want one that doesn't record what's going on around the room,
and possibly something that only records my voice. (no humming in background)
and maybe something that isn't that pricey...

And what brand do you guys use?
I use Logitech, so i'm not aware of other brands and how they preform.

Thanks!

I'm using a dynamic mic (Sony) at the moment which is not as sensitive in picking up backgound sounds compared to say a condenser mic.... (but it also makes your voice sound more muffled... and you would need to add say like reverb in the effects to make it sound brighter)

if you want to go for a USB mic...
the ones that Mitsuru recommended before from Blue (Yeti, Pro, Snowball) are all excellent...
there's also the Samson Meteor (I think that was the name) that my friend used was not bad also

though i'm not sure if it'll pick up sounds around the room.... :T
The humming in the background may be noise from your sound card. I get that also, and I have to use noise removal in the recording program to remove it... X3

i'm not an expert in this~ but just my 2c~ hope it helps somewhat~

Exactly what sabi said.

However blue mics are expensive. Blue snowball is 99$ and mine, the yeti pro, cost $350. But is overall worth it.

The regular yeti is $150 if you wanna try that too.

I don't use the best mic in the world (I got it for $20 xDD) But it works, and I'm using it until I decide to get a better one. But I use a mic from Gigaware. I really like it, but occasionally it puffs... it's not a huge problem, though.

Here's a picture. x3

For jobs, I can suggest something. XD Only because it's a really good pay, if you're good enough. And you can get your license at age 12. : D Got mine two years ago.
You can try refereeing for sports?

The classes and uniforms are a bit expensive, but refereeing for soccer is about 10-20 dollars per game which is about a hour. Which is pretty good for anyone. : D

I got my referee license for soccer, but I'm a bit lazy. >_<

Oh, and I just use a really bad built in microphone. I'm going to Walmart to pick up a good microphone later on in the week.
