Want to make your audio sound even better when recording your next podcast or YouTube video voiceover? The JLab Audio Talk USB mic (opens in new tab) is a great option, and today it's down to its lowest price ever at just $49.99 at Amazon. You can also find this price at Best Buy (opens in new tab), but the mic normally sells for between $60 and $80. It was going for as much as $100 earlier this summer.

The JLab Talk is a great mid-range mic, but it's not the only member of the Talk lineup on sale right now. You could also go for the JLab Talk Go (opens in new tab). This is a more budget-oriented and portable version of the mic, and right now it's down to $43.99 at Amazon. That's a $6 discount off its regular price. You could also grab the step-up mic, the JLab Audio Talk Pro (opens in new tab) on sale for $119.99. We have seen it go lower than this in the past, but the price is still $30 off what it was going for in June.

What you get is a high-performance mic with three condensers, a recording sample rate of 96kHz and a bit depth of 24-bits. It's not a mic that's meant to travel but rather sit on your desk and regularly give you the upgraded and consistent audio you desire. Whatever sort of content creation you're into, whether that's streaming on Twitch or building up a community on YouTube, you'll get quality sound. Record your voice, play an instrument, have podcast-like debates, or whatever.

The mic also includes four directional pattern modes to help you decide how you want your audio to be picked up. Choose between Omnidirectional, Cardioid, Stereo, and Bidirectional. The pattern you pick depends on what and how you're recording and how you want that audio to be picked up. Cardioid, for example, is the most popular pattern for YouTubers and Twitch streamers because it's designed to ignore sound coming from behind the mic, which would include things like the typing of a keyboard or click of a mouse. But you will need to find the pattern that works best for you, and don't forget to change it up if your setup changes!

The mic has a lot of other controls as well. It comes with a gain control for adjusting to any distortion, a volume control, and a 3.5mm aux input. Connect a pair of headphones and get real-time listening. It's also a plug-and-play mic that doesn't require any drivers, so you can just plug in and go. Comes with a 6.5-foot USB-C cable and an adjustable stand.
