3 Best Mics for Camming – Top External Mics Reviewed

As a camgirl, one of the ways to take your camming and video-making to the next level is an external mic. It’s an essential tool for anyone who relies a lot on clear audio for cam shows, which a webcam or a laptop mic just can’t deliver. You’ll see these mics a lot with Twitch streamers, and while a lot of camgirls’ mics are out of view, lots of girls do use them to get the best and clearest audio possible, especially for shooting vids!

Below are the Top 3 Microphones for different price levels, starting with the most popular mic used online – Blue Yeti Mic.

    I just bodered the Logitech C920 webcam and the reviews say the microphone on it works well. Would you suggest another microphone in addition to that one?

      Hi, you can check it out to see how you like it, and the mic on the C920 does work well, but if you want even clearer sound, you should get an external mic. The difference in quality will be especially noticeable if you play music/sing on cam.
