Overtime, gamers and streamers buy expensive cameras with great video quality, although that’s not the most important concept for a good YouTube channel. It also depends on audio quality as well. So you’ll need some of the best microphones. In this, I’ll show some of the best microphones for your YouTubing needs.
Best Budget Mic Under $150
Same microphone that I use, at $130 its totally worth the buy. Solid build, audio quality, and design. Also has 4-pattern mode switch for different scenarios. Has a mute button so during stream you can mute yourself as well.

Best Microphone Overall
Best Microphone under $200, built by the infamous Razer.

The big sister of the blue yeti, with XLR input. This mic is the big gun next to Razer’s Seiren Elite.
Polar Patterns-Cardioid, bidirectional, omni, stereo

Best Mic Under $100
Certified by StreamLabs for mainly streaming/gaming, the Seiren X is the best under $100. Shock absorbent in case of accidents as well. Very compact and great audio quality that can even fit limited spaces on the desk.
Sample Rate- 48kHz
Compatiple with OBS and Xsplit
Best Mic Under $50
Great balance for audio quality to price ratio. Very compact for fitting on limited spaces as well. I will definitely recommend if you want great audio at a low budget. Only mic that I can compare at this list because not many competitors can match the quality at this price.
