30-50 € Mic for Gaming and Skype: XLR / USB?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello Head-Fi forum. I am definatly not an expert on microfones or other recording devices.
 

I need a microfone for Skype and Gaming with the following features:

 

 

1- Have decent, clear, consistent (compressed lol) quality. Bass doens't really matter much.

2- Be rather small so it won't take my line of sight in the screen while gaming.

3- Should be decent to use in front of the monitor while the speakers are playing gaming sounds and not completly kill my voice.

4- Will last some years (well, at least one that's not broken in a month)


I was thinking of the Samson Go Mic USB. However, i worries me in the reviews that it seemed (at least to me) to catch a lot of elements from behind, even in one direction mode.

 

Also, i have a M-Audio Fast Track Pro soundcard with phantom power, should i get a normal XLR type condenser mic? Or will it be a big thing between me and the screen? (i use a desktop computer).

Thank you for your help.

I have a samson go and it works pretty well. My friends say that it sounds pretty clear when I talk, even with a little background noise from my speakers.

Thanks for the reply :)

Where do you place it usually? Because i have no other place to place it then in the middle of both my speakers, below my screen.

That's the exact place where I put my mic.

Nice. In that case, the only question i have atm is whether it is better to use a XLR Condenser one like... some of these here around the same price? http://www.thomann.de/pt/cat.html?gf=microfones_condensadores&oa=pra


Because i have a M-Audio Fast Track Pro Soundcard i have more options than the usb ones.
