Microphones have become so much more important in our age of remote work – even more so if you are a content creator. So, here are our top microphone gift picks for the 2022 holiday season.
The ROCCAT Torch USB microphone is an outstanding choice for creators that absolutely will NOT break your bank account. It features a dual condenser capsule design with 24-Bit audio quality and three selectable pick-up patterns. It also has a stylish and professional look with some RGB to boot!
Shure MV7 USB/XLR
The Shure MV7 USB/XLR microphone features outstanding audio recording capabilities – in fact – way better than most people need. If you’re a more professional creator who prefers using USB microphones, this is a game changer. The Shure MV7 USB/XLR does also feature an XLR port, but it doesn’t work as well as the dedicated XLR Shure microphones out there. The downside to all this quality is the price.
DJI has really stepped up their game in the last five years, with most of their tech being simply outstanding gift ideas. The DJI Mic is the company’s take on a dual channel wireless lavalier mic system geared towards content creators. It’s audio backup capabilities coupled with connection adapters and sheer ease-of-use push the DJI Mic ahead of the RØDE Wireless GO II in almost every way except one – cost. This is a pretty pricey wireless microphone setup.
Hollyland Lark M1
While the RØDE Wireless GO II wireless mic system might have almost the same level of quality and features as the DJI Mic, it’s still very pricey. The Hollyland Lark M1 wireless mic system, however, will provide decent audio recording at a budget price point. Don’t expect DJI or RØDE level quality and you won’t be disappointed.
