Being a cam girl I have found that it is always best to have a great external mic for camming. Of course, the best mics are going to cost more, but you have to spend money in order to make money. You may have noticed that the cam you have offers a great picture, but the mic attached to it is just crappy simply because your users can not hear you. So, I have compiled a list of my favorite (as well as everyone else’s) mics for camming.
This microphone comes with 3 condenser capsules so that almost any situation is able to be recorded. It comes with multiple pattern selection (meaning you can choose from cardioid, bidirectional, omnidirectional, and more). It can work for Mac OS X and PC (Windows, Vista, XP, etc).
Personally I have found this microphone to be one of a kind, and it is great for anyone who has a great cam but can not get great sound quality out of that cam. I, of course, started out with just using my laptop (I didn’t even have an external webcam), and that was a pain in comparison to this bad boy.
Even though the option above is pretty great, this Blue Snowball Microphone is cheaper and that means that it is certainly worth checking out. This one comes with custom condenser capsules, and has clear audio for those using Skype, Messenger, Camming Sites, etc. It is really great for recording vocals, creating podcasts, and it can even help with adding some great narration to any home movies that you might be making. Of course, all of this means that it will be great for earning you some money on cam. This microphone plugs right into your Mac or PC, and you don’t even have to install any drivers for it to work.
Personally, I have found that this is one of the best cheaper options to go with. I love this microphone, and only recently have upgraded to the microphone I listed above. This one has offered me years of great quality for a cheap price.
The Dealpeak Microphone is great for camming, it fits perfectly with everything. It is really great for those who are just starting out, especially those who cannot yet afford the more expensive Yeti option. This mic was specifically designed for those trying to chat over Skype, Messenger, and Youtube. Of course, all of that means that it is certainly a great option for cam girls to use. The 3.5mm stereo plug was designed to fit almost any PC, and you won’t be needing any extra gear for it. It even has noise cancellation features.
Personally, I have found the Dealpeak Microphone to be a great addition to my camming set. Of course, I prefer my Yeti over this one any day of the week, but it is still a great option for those who are on a limited budget.
