I was able to find a Neewer NW-700 ($27) condenser mic that comes with a shock mount and XLR-to-3.5mm cable. I've read that this will most likely require external power because the 3.5mm connection won't do by itself. However, if you're getting into podcasting, you'll want to look into an audio interface and things like that. An alternative to this is a ...

The Samson Meteorite is pretty good, for its price. Very limited hiss at all. In fact, at high levels, you're more likely to get the environmental noise recorded than any hiss. It's a USB mic, so it should work with your laptop with minimal setup (requires driver installation, as do most peripherals) It's a condenser mic, which is good for voice recordings. ...

I'd also recommend a Samson company. If you don't have a problem with buying second-hand items, you can get a Samson Go Mic for less than $30 or buy a brand new one for $38 from amazon. Pros: Portable USB condenser microphone Plug and Play Useful clip (you don't have to buy another accessory to keep it in a place) "Natural" sound (perfect for podcasts) ...

Over Ear I've got the LinkWitz Casque Bluetooth headphones, which are an over-ear pair of wireless headphones with passive noise cancelling and a microphone. They run on a rechargeable battery (charges via microUSB - comes with a charging cable, though you probably already have one) that I've found lasts about 12-15 hours of regular but intermittent use. I ...

For that price you won't be able to get anything too great, but there are a few options still. I'll recommend the same mic I recommended to @JonasCz here a while back: the Tonor USB Condenser Mic. For being a small, cheap mic, it has great quality. Specifications Sensitivity: -55dB to 2dB Frequency response: 50Hz to 16KHz Sound-noise ratio: >36dB Cord ...

In Ear For their price the Apple Airpods ($159) really are at the top of their market segment. You'll get the in-ear design you prefer and 3-5 hours of listening time per charge and another 3-5 hours after placing them in the charging case for just 15 minutes. Being an iPhone user you also benefit from features that an Android user would not, such as the ...

Worst webcam? Ok, then you will need something bad and cheap as a rock. However it's hard to find anything you specified and making sure it will work. (cheap products like to break a lot) I recommend getting a cam with low FPS (30 should be enough in your case) and as low megapixels as possible. Try using it in the dim room or sticking a translucent sticker ...

Hard to tell from Røde's site whether the mic dimensions are with or without that little U-shaped mount. If it's with, then you might have some luck buying an entire cheapo mic kit & using the shock-mount from it. This Neewer NW-700 [& a myriad variants under different names] can be bought for even less than the price of a separate shock-mount. The ...

Each A2DP "service" is Mono-Directional. A typical device using the A2DP profile for music will not support more than one service (i.e. audio stream), but it's possible. This would need a more complicated chipset so it may not be suitable for the size constraints of "truly wireless" earbuds. Unfortunately I can't recommend any headphones ...

In case your radio won't take a USB input... Here are a couple 3.5mm options: Poking around Amazon I found the "Floureon BM-800 Condenser Sound Studio Recording Broadcasting Microphone" for $30 it's the best seller so it's probably not too bad. "Tonor 3.5mm Studio Professional Microphone Mic with Stand For Audio Sound Recording Skype Desktop PC Laptop ...

Like Digital Boffin said, you're not going to be able to get something worthwhile under $10. I also use a Blue Snowball for recordings and it works very well. If you poke around on ebay, you may be able to find a used Blue Snowball. I was able to find one here on ebay for $25. If you want to get something that's new, you're going to have pay at least $50 for ...

I would advise you against your own hardware for this task. The goal of Raspberry Pi is to be a small-size substitute for a PC, not a large-size substitute for a professional recorder. Based on your comments, you have some quantity of XLR microphones—you weren't clear if it's two stereo microphones or four mono microphones—and you want to mix this sound and ...

I just check on Amazon for the ULM100USB. and in the Q&A someone from Behringer said that it works on Macs. Have you contacted their customer service department? Recommendation: Given that their website and product brochure says that it's compatible with a Mac, you should stick with that product. From their product brochure: I would double check the ...

There's a vibrant market for these "digital audio recorders" (also often called "digital voice recorders"). Here's a Best Reviews description of the current market. E.g., the EVISTR L36 appears to check all your boxes. (Note that the marginal cost of the mics can be negligible, so you probably won't find a DVR without one.)
