What's the Best Desktop Microphone?

Whether you're podcasting, video chatting with coworkers or friends, or a burgeoning YouTube celebrity, you'll need a good desktop microphone. We've talked about how to choose the right one for you , but this week we want to hear which ones you think are the best for the job.

Granted, the best microphone for you depends on the purpose you have for it, but we're willing to bet there are more than a few that you think will work in most cases, are versatile for multiple purposes, and won't break the bank. We want to hear which ones are your favorites! Let us know in the discussions below.

Let's hear your vote in the discussions below! To cast your vote, follow these guidelines:

  1. Follow this format for your vote, including the bold print. If you don't, it won't be counted:

    Vote: [BEST DESKTOP MICROPHONE]

    Why: Why is this desktop microphone the best to buy? Maybe it's well reveiwed, or the best podcasters or audio recorders you know use it. Perhaps it's affordable and just gets the job done. Make your case! Try to keep it to a single paragraph, maybe two. Let us know how much it costs, if you know.

  2. Don't duplicate nominations! Instead, if someone's nominated your pick, star (recommend) it to give it a boost, and reply with your story instead.
  3. Please don't leave non-entry, direct comments on this post. They'll just get pushed down. Save your stories for others' submissions!

If you're not sure what we mean, just check out the nominations by our writers below. We'll give you a head start, and they should all be in the proper format, so you can just follow our lead.

The Hive Five is our weekly series where you vote on your favorite apps and tools for any given job. Have a suggestion for a topic? Send us an email at tips+hivefive@lifehacker.com!
