We're often asked for recommendations on good portable microphones which can be used to record podcasts or for voice chat. One of the best for the money is the Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone, available on Amazon for $59.95 with free shipping.
Since this is a cardioid dynamic microphone, it's best for use by a single person talking directly into it, as opposed to other mics which are more designed for recording an entire room. The easiest way to hook it up to a computer is using the built-in USB connection, which will make this mic show up as another sound card, similar to many headset mics. Plug a pair of headphones into the mic to hear how you sound. It can also be connected to a mixer using the standard XLR jack. If you're considering recording a submission for one of our podcasts, or just want to make yours sound better, this is an affordable way to go.Source: Go to source
