Recording voice overs is a professional career for many, but without the proper microphone to capture the quality needed we’re essentially at a wash. As we’ve reviewed microphones for many years now, we’ve gotten a good hang of creating guides for particular uses, so today for our voice over microphone guide wanted to give you an array of choices that span across multiple microphone types, connectivity, budgets and more. We do recommend saving up some cash if your budget is still pretty low — voice overs mainly concern sound quality, which will translate into a decent price tag but to us is well worth the investment. Let’s take a look.
Buying a microphone for gaming will give your voice a step up when it comes to one of the most important parts of the process as a whole — communication (both to your teammates or even your enemies). Whether you’re in need of a simple solution to replace your headset mic (that really isn’t ideal for sound quality in general), or perhaps prefer to game with a high-quality pair of headphones and need a microphone to accompany your setup, we found 10 of our favorite models here to recommend you today. Many of these will also work for those who stream, record, or partake in any other side projects that need a mic. First we would like to teach you a few factors to keep in mind while you look for the best gaming microphone for you, since we have a lot of options depending on your budget, setting as well as type of mic preference.

Luckily in the music gear world, a lot of our favorite brands (and a few of our favorite mics in general) come with some “packages” that can cover some bases you were already planning on purchasing separately, creating a nice little collection of gear to get us recording right out of the box. Let’s get into the top 10 best microphone packages we found that are worth buying today.
