    You can get some cheap Heils for like 50-60 bucks that work great.. Whats affordable to you? I have spent $200 or more on mics in the past.

    Heil would probally would be the brand id consider. i dont think a standard
    20 buck headset would justify for an internet broadcast.

    50-60 would sound fair for a beginner to be 'affordable' and hq.

    I agree with the hulk, AKG's is what I use too. Low end, but solid and not cheap.

    Don't know, never used heil's stuff...

    I have use this though, and can say it's an amazing mic for the price, but you'll need phantom power to use it.

    Hello everybody.

    I am wondering what would be a good microphone for me to use thats affordabl yet high quality?

    For what purpose? If you're looking for voice then the ElectroVoice RE20 is hard to beat for quality vs. price (300 or so new and 100-150 used). This is the defacto standard for radio and voice applications.

    And, the RE20 is very good at capturing high SPL instruments as well with its large diaphram. I use an RE20 almost exclusively on kick drums and bass cabinets. It is also a nice mic for guitar cabinets and just about anything really.

    But, if you want to spend less you can go with something like the Shure Beta 57A which is good with voice and very versatile.

    Look into this baby: http://www.samash.com/catalog/showitem.asp?itemid=38508

    For the first time ever, musicians who record music on computers have a simple, affordable way to capture high-quality vocal and acoustic instrument performances. Samson is proud to introduce the first-ever affordable studio condenser mic with a direct USB output: The C01U USB Studio Condenser Mic.

    Seamless integration was the idea, and it was obtained by creating a studio condenser microphone that can be plugged into any computer with no in/out boxes, no expensive computer pre-amps, just a USB cable. The C01U condenser microphone is based on Samson's wildly successful C01. It features a 19mm internal shock mounted diaphragm with a cardioid pick up pattern ensuring pristine studio quality recordings.

    Features:

    * Cardioid Pickup Pattern
    * Large 19mm Diaphragm
    * Heavy Gauge Mesh Grille
    * Smotth, Flat Frequency Response
    * USB Connection cable included

    Please note: The Samson C01U will work without the SoftPre applet software using the standard drivers included in your computerÆs operating system. However if you would like added functionality of the Samson SoftPre applet (Input Level Meter, Volume control, High-pass filter and Phase Switch), you may download the appropriate one for your operating system.

    The Windows SoftPre applet supports both WDM and ASIO and is designed to work with Windows XP (Service Pack 2). Without the SoftPre applet, Windows should recognize the mic and use the Windows mixer as a volume control if needed.
