In this video, I provide an overview of what a USB microphone is and what you should consider when buying a new USB mic in 2019.

Covered in this video:
1. What is a USB microphone
2. What questions should you ask when choosing a USB mic
3. What are some of the features to look for when choosing a USB microphone
4. Review of some of the best selling microphones and which one I would recommend

When choosing a USB microphone for a Mac, PC or iPhone/iPad, it is important to ask yourself:
1. What will you be recording? Music may require a higher end mic with more features compared to podcasts, streaming or spoken word.
2. Will you need to monitor your audio? If so, you will need a microphone with a headphone jack built in
3. What will you be recording to? You can plug in directly with a Mac or PC, but will need a Lightning to USB adapter for an iPhone or iPad
4. What is your budget? USB microphones range from less then $50 to more than $250, so you need to decide on what features are important before you select the best mic for you
