Hi guys,

I'm looking to pick up a budget desk microphone to use while I am gaming. At the minute i am using a standard ps4 mic and it is awful, I sound like Chewbacca!

Could anybody recommend a cheap budget mic that will allow me to communicate in game on team speak, discord and Skype with good quality. I am looking at condenser mic's but reading all sort s about Whether I need phantom power or not and I'm not sure.

Thanks

Blue Snowball. The "Best" microphone, overall. Hugely popular, great audio and awesome price.

2nd this, try the Blue Snowball iCE since for gaming you'll only need cardioid and not omni. Cheaper too!

What is your budget?

50$- The Blue Snowball ICE 100$- Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Studio Microphone Just a smidge more, at 130$: Blue Yeti, one of the most popular mic for Youtubers and voiceovers. 150+: Audio Technica AT2035.

These are my recommendations for Youtube and voiceovers. Normal communications like Skype or Discord works very well, of course. You do not need Phantom Power because all of these are USB microphones that works plug and play.
