If you are podcasting or thinking about podcasting, the cost of equipment can be extremely high. The Shure PGA48-XLR Microphone addresses that issue quite nicely. It is inexpensive ($39) and has great quality sound.
This Shure PGA48-XLR microphone has an on/off switch. It connects using an XLR interface. It is very easy to hold and can easily attach to any microphone stand you have.
Yogi's Podcast Network started using these Shure PGA48-XLR microphones for Politicon 2018 and found that in a very loud room, the microphone picked up mostly the sound from the speaker and not much background noise. This provided some amazing sound even though Politicon was held in a crowded conference hall.
I personally find my voice to be richer and more lifelike using the Shure PGA48-XLR. It just makes everything sound so much better.
You can currently buy these on Amazon for $39. This is an amazing deal for what you get. They even include a long XLR cable for that money. You cannot go wrong with these microphones.
