    doesn’t matter what mic he uses the music wil always be gorgeous



  2. Imperial Podcast on February 1, 2021 at 6:21 pm

    I like the sound of the Elgato mics. I didn’t like the sound of the Fifine and I hated the sound of the Modmic. The rest were average sounding to me.



  3. Corey Michaud on February 1, 2021 at 6:22 pm

    i really like the looks for the samson meter



  4. HKS on February 1, 2021 at 6:22 pm

    For streaming / gaming purposes I would highly reocommend you to next time also include a keyboard test where you put the microphone at a common spot on your desk and just start typing. The Fifine for example is a terrible choice if you’re using a mechanical keyboard since it’s picking up every little sound.



  5. Jay- Rus on February 1, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    What? No PodMic on the list? That is a great mic for the money



  6. A on February 1, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    Damn Dmitry.. That guitar distracted me from the whole video.. that was beautiful



  7. Its_Ky on February 1, 2021 at 6:28 pm

    What are your thoughts on the HyperX. Would you recommend it?



  8. Warlock on February 1, 2021 at 6:28 pm

    Does the blue yeti nano not have a gain control?



  9. Modern gun guy on February 1, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    hyper x is the best sounding



  10. Ryan Lennox-Bradley on February 1, 2021 at 6:31 pm

    I maintain the shure sm7b is the best
    Unless you can afford a u87



  11. The Real Richy on February 1, 2021 at 6:31 pm

    Red makes ur voice faster LOL like a red paint job on a car



  12. Sebastian-Benedict Flore on February 1, 2021 at 6:31 pm

    With the guitar, I could only tell the difference with the Fifine, the modmic and, I think, the Quadcast (which seemed to sound like the best). I really couldn’t tell with the others.



  13. nina campos on February 1, 2021 at 6:32 pm

    My area is so noisy with cars passing by and dogs randomly barking, even tho i hide in a walk in closet. Can anyone recommend what mic is best for my situation?



  14. AMV Works on February 1, 2021 at 6:35 pm

    I want the blue yeti, but the quadcast looks SICK



  15. Thegreatwhiteround Studio on February 1, 2021 at 6:35 pm

    i cant find the difference, its like they are all the same๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ



  16. josh on February 1, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    skipping through timestamps to realise they all sound the same



  17. DownrangeAce on February 1, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    sooo i shouldn’t get the blue snowball?



  18. Dookie Fart on February 1, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    Now we need a 2021 video!



  19. Boeing AH-64 Apache Longbow on February 1, 2021 at 6:39 pm

    Please, do a video, dedicated specially to you playing this music.



  20. Dk496 on February 1, 2021 at 6:41 pm

    what kind of microphone do you use



  21. wassup eli on February 1, 2021 at 6:42 pm

    I will keep my fifine



  22. HGP on February 1, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    would have loved to see the podmic here



  23. RAZ0RGAM1NG on February 1, 2021 at 6:47 pm

    When you started playing what sounded like stalker i got goosebumps lol



  24. M Morales on February 1, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    Anything but the Razer ๐Ÿคฎ
    Personally I would take the Audio Technica and Fifine.



  25. Corey Michaud on February 1, 2021 at 6:49 pm

    lol "red makes your voice faster"



  26. Sheep on February 1, 2021 at 6:51 pm

    To by way honest it was better listening to his voice as haye read the book. Felt soooo Great.



  27. Sebastian-Benedict Flore on February 1, 2021 at 6:53 pm

    I really like the Quadcast. Fifine and modmic sound like trash. Yeti slightly muffled. The rest sound basically the same to me.



  28. Garth McCarthy on February 1, 2021 at 6:53 pm

    I have been trying to get the FIFINE T669 but all sold out



  29. entity. on February 1, 2021 at 6:54 pm

    might just go for the fifine one. sounds fine to my ears and sounds good to my card ๐Ÿ™‚



  30. Mauro Sanna on February 1, 2021 at 6:55 pm

    You shouldn’t have tested the Elgato mics with the pop filter on, they already have it integrated.



  31. Richard O on February 1, 2021 at 6:55 pm

    You had me at red makes your voice faster, SOLD.

  32. Louis on February 1, 2021 at 6:57 pm

    for anyone watching this in 2021: the Yeti nano just got an update so you can apply your on EQ and stuff in the Software ๐Ÿ˜€ thats kinda sick



  33. Braeden Sorbo on February 1, 2021 at 6:58 pm

    so im getting my streaming setup later this month, and I want a mic with good quality. a lot of people are saying blue yeti, that won’t pickup background noise or anything?



  34. ECHOS Z on February 1, 2021 at 6:59 pm

    Blue yeti๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•



  35. STEEL- Train on February 1, 2021 at 7:01 pm

    Iโ€™ve been looking at the quad cast but Iโ€™m glad the quality came out so well on your end. Thanks for the review ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ



  36. Lavitsmalstrome on February 1, 2021 at 7:02 pm

    Love the elgato wave 3 just cause I can prevent loud noise peaks and natural leveling of my voice in recording vs my old yeti, and the mic software work with the capture card software making editing easy for starter streamers



  37. EfStat on February 1, 2021 at 7:03 pm

    Iโ€™m negl that guitar playing was a vibe



  38. helmaster on February 1, 2021 at 7:03 pm

    ok soou goood video



  40. Technickr on February 1, 2021 at 7:04 pm

    Awesome Sound from Blue Ember, but you need some more Gear as the Mic alone. Next best was the Blue Nano and Elgato Wave 3. I ‘ll pic the Wave 3 because of the auto gain from the Blue nano. Thank you very much for this Video!



  41. Neon Cheese on February 1, 2021 at 7:04 pm

    HE PLAYED "HE WAS A GOOD STALKER"!!!
    that’s awesome



  42. Slamwich 1 on February 1, 2021 at 7:05 pm

    He sounds like gru from despicable me when he is reading the girls a bedtime story

  44. Kayleh ngov on February 1, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    Someone recommend me just one I just want to play phasmophobia with my cousins and stream



  45. Graywolf2442 on February 1, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    I could be wrong but it sounded like you had some of the Metro Games guitar soundtrack. in the background when you where talking about the mic’s after your guitar comparison. Its pretty faint but it starts at 6:30 and is the most noticeable at 6:40. If not was it something you played? It sounded nice.



  46. Ole Martin on February 1, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    Do I need a boom arm to remove noises that typing on my keyboard makes? I use a mechanical keyboard for gaming, and it can get very loud.



  47. Truth Time TV on February 1, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    the man is playing an aucustical instrumental version of "look back at it- a boogie wit da hoodie" LOL or the sample it references of course as teh basis of the song caught it immediately



  48. Dwagon on February 1, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    Don’t buy blue yeti mine broke so sad



  49. Crucial Crowd on February 1, 2021 at 7:15 pm

    The Blue Ember and Elgato Wave 3 sound the best to my ears



  50. DizHavoc on February 1, 2021 at 7:17 pm

    What song
