When it comes to producing and putting together a successful stream, perhaps nothing is more important than the audio. Poor sound quality is an instant turn off for many audience members, and being too loud or abrasive is an equally bad thing. Thankfully, the ability to find a great microphone to use while streaming has never been better, as the sheer number of microphones available has never been greater. To make things easier, we've rounded up some of our favorite microphones to use while streaming on Mixer.

A ton of options to choose from

When first looking into the world of streaming, the accessories needed can seem a bit overwhelming. Fortunately, finding quality options at every turn has never been easier, and this is especially true for microphones. If you're looking for the best overall microphone, we'd recommend the Blue Yeti X (opens in new tab), as it not only features a ton of audio options for you to edit but also has a somewhat affordable price tag for those looking to just dive into streaming. If you'd rather something that promises more value, the Samson G-Track Pro (opens in new tab) is by far the best microphone for its value. It comes equipped with stellar sound quality and a wide range of settings for you to tweak.

Getting the best value is always good, but if you're in the market for more premium options, then the Razer Seiren Elite (opens in new tab) and Blue Spark SL (opens in new tab) might be for you. These are top of the line entries for microphones, with the Razer even sporting some built-in features that will help users know if they're speaking too loudly.

Of course, more beginner-friendly options exist, with the Fifine Metal Condenser Recording Microphone (opens in new tab) presenting an excellent microphone for users just looking to jump into the hobby of streaming. Regardless of what you're looking for, there are tons of options to choose from, so you won't have to worry if you've made a bad choice.
