    10 Best USB Microphones 2022 | UK Filmmaker Reviewed

    It’s difficult to get anywhere in the audio world without a microphone, but they can often require just as much setting up as a drum kit. Thankfully, some clever soul created USB microphones that can be up and running in minutes. These are ideal for a whole range of audio pursuits from recording podcasts to singing vocals, live streaming and Zoom calls, making them a certified crowd-pleaser.  That said, a pristine mic made for recording music in a large room might have too much high fidelity for a web gaming streamer, so they are not one-size-fits-all. For that reason, we’ve put together a guide looking at what to consider before purchasing. After you've stocked up on knowledge, we’ll show you our top ten budget and pro-standard favourites from brands like Audio-Technica, Rode and Blue.
