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, 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 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 and Blue Spark SL 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 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.
