Deciding which microphone is best for YouTube will largely depend on the videos you are making. In many cases, you will need more than one microphone so that you can use the one that best fits your situation.
If you are doing screen recording or voiceover after your record, a USB or XLR Studio mic will work best.
Lavalier microphones are great in a lot of situations where you don't have to worry about being close to the mic - just clip them on and start recording.
Shotgun mics are excellent for run-and-gun style videos, vlogging, and sit-down interview-style shots.
Since there are so many types of videos, and different microphones that work well for recording them, we've highlighted our favorite YouTube mic by category so you can easily find out what works best.
