USB Microphones are designed for use with a personal computer or laptop and can either be Dynamic or Condenser. Regardless, they all feature an integrated preamplifier and an Analog to Digital (A/D) converter; and they all employ a single Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable to power the microphone’s internal electronics and send digital audio to the computer. USB mics are currently in use by consumers and professionals alike for a wide variety of applications, such as recording music either at home or in the field; recording podcasts; speaking with others online; or gaming. As such, there are many different types of USB microphones available across a wide price range and with a variety of features. Some even employ multiple capsules with switchable polar patterns, bass roll-off switches, and ambient sound rejection circuitry.
