A great mic, and great audio in general, is essential for content creation. Whether you're trying to be the next YouTube star or want to stream games live on Twitch or whatever, don't overlook the need for solid audio. The JLab Audio Talk USB condenser microphone is a solid choice, and right now you can get it for just $59.99 through Best Buy. That's an excellent price and one of the best we've ever seen. It drop about $10 lower during Black Friday, but it was easy to miss that deal if you weren't looking for it. Outside of the holiday shopping weekend, today's price is the best we've ever seen for a mic that can often sell as high as $100. This is even $20 better than Amazon's current price, but the Best Buy sale is one of the deals of the day and won't last long.
The Jlab Talk is right smack dab in the middle of the Jlab Audio USB mic lineup. You can save on the other members of that group today as well. The Jlab Talk Go, for example, is on sale for $27.74 through Amazon. This mic normally sells for around $50, although it has been mostly hovering around $40 in recent months. This drop is the lowest it has ever been on Amazon. You can also upgrade to the JLab Talk Pro, which is down to $81.09 at Amazon. The street price for that mic is around $120, and today's deal is within about $6 of its lowest price ever.
The mid-tier mic in the Jlab Talk series that strikes a great balance between cost and performance. Get professional-sounding audio with the four directional pattern modes you can choose from, gain adjustment, volume control, and plenty of other feautres that help you get the sound just right.
If you haven't heard of the Jlab Talk series, these are high-performance mics that are designed to sit on your desktop and provide studio-quality audio. With the Jlab Talk you get a recording sample rate of 96kHz and a bit depth of 24 bits. It's great for recording your voice, instruments, random sounds, or whatever.
The mic has four directional patterns you can choose from including cardioid, omnidirectional, stereo, and bidirectional. The pattern you choose will determine how your mic picks up the audio it is hearing. That can be important depending on what you're doing. Cardioid is one of the more popular patterns for content creators because it's designed to pick up noise coming from the front of the mic while ignoring the audio coming from behind. If you want to talk without the mic picking up sounds from your keyboard or mouse, that's a good way to do it.
Other features include gain adjustment, volume control, a 3.5mm aux input so you can monitor your audio with no latency, and more. It's also plug-and-play so you can get to work without needing any drivers or software.
