For a lower cost microphone, we thought the Snowball sounded pretty good. Definitely need a pop filter with it.

The Yeti is a beast of a microphone. It sounds really good and looks great. Multiple settings make it flexible. Downside, it is big.

We've used this mic for almost a decade and it's still great. It has good sound. Not a lot of bells and whistles and doesn't need them.

We were surprised by this mic. It has a great sound. XLR only and a pit more costly. However, the difference is in the sound, and it's good.

Small shotgun mic has a great sound, especially up close. Used mostly for voiceover and podcasting. Not sure how it works on a boom pole.
