Video calls are a great way to keep in touch with your long-distance friends, but they're no fun with subpar audio. If your computer is in need of microphone upgrade, consider Aukey's Bidirectional Condenser Microphone. It's available for only $4.93 at Amazon when you enter promo code OQ4T3XQ8 during checkout. That'll save you $9 off its average price there, and snagging any decent microphone for less than $5 is a pretty stellar offer.

This microphone comes with a tripod for easy set-up and features a built-in volume control dial that can help you quickly adjust your microphone's input volume. It's a great pick whether you plan on podcasting, recording vocals, calling friends, or narrating a YouTube video. It uses a 3.5mm cable to connect and is compatible with most computers, smartphones, and audio recording equipment. Aukey also includes a 2-year warranty with its purchase.
