Finding the perfect computer microphone is not always easy and can often cause us to go through multiple products until we finally find the best one. In this article, we have put together our top 3 favourite Computer Microphones and the ones we bet recommend. To begin with, it’s important to know exactly what you’re looking for in a microphone. With there being so many different types of Microphones on the market you need to have a budget in mind and an idea as to what you want to use it for. What we mean by this is that the difference between a gaming Microphone for streaming and a microphone for Zoom calls are going to have different quality.
In this article, we go over 2 of our favourite microphones for Gaming purposes and one for casual zoom/skype meetings.
1. Blue Microphone Snowball (iCE)
One which a lot of gaming streamers use and one which we recommend for both professionals and starter streamers is the Blue Microphone Snowball iCE. The microphone is a great all-around device that comes in 3 different colours. It’s compatible with microphone control arms but also comes with its very own desk stand. With almost 30,000 reviews on Amazon, the Blue Microphone snowball is a very high-quality microphone for a very good price of £75. We use it here at Mi-Tech and the sound quality is very similar to microphones with a value of over £200! The device is perfect for anyone that wants to have a gaming microphone for their computer.

2. Razer Seirēn X
The Razer Seirēn X is designed as a streaming and gaming device that is the perfect companion for not only casual gamers but also streamers. Available in 3 different colours, pink, black and white, the device matches with most computer setups and can also sync with other Razer RGB setups. Again the device has a high range pickup and very clear sound quality but comes at a higher price tag of £100. The Razer Seirēn series can also come as a more compact Mini version, a built-in Emote function version, and a professional version but the prices vary per device (up to £200).
