If you are new to podcasting and audio, you are probably wondering what XLR is? Do I need to invest, or can I get by with a USB microphone?
They both have their benefits and drawbacks. If you are looking to start a podcast, you can get by with a USB mic. USB Mics are easy to use, give you good sound quality, and are more mobile to take on the road. While the XLR is an upgrade from the USB, it helps you get a professional-quality product and gives you additional editing options.
If you are looking to get into podcasting professionally, you probably have the use for both. If podcasting is a hobby, a good USB mic will serve your purpose just fine.
