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.
