What is the best mic for under $100? I've been looking at the ATR-2500 and the Blue Snowball.

I just bought the ATR2500. I dislike blue but I'm riding on Audio-Technica's dick right now.

Enjoy those tacos now, for in 1000 years they will be illegal... eh Ha Ha Ha! I think we all know why.

You can get the Yeti for $90 on Amazon right now (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002VA464S/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=O1ERA81ZL9VO&coliid=I1IVBIZK7JZM7S). Other than that I think the AT-2500 (I have it and use it for YouTube under the same name as here to see a stock recording) or the Snowball.

I certainly have a lot more respect for Audio Technica than I will ever have for Blue, they have been in the business for a long, long time and they without a doubt know what they're doing.

I also just got this and according to others it sounds better than a Snowball.

My System Specs: (Short list) i7 4770k, GTX 780, many SSD's, a 2 TB HDD(deceased :( ), Corsair 650D. Full list: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/kchriz6097/saved/8dh7YJ


Upgrade Plan: Acquire some Black Noctuas then add 16 or 32GB of 2133MHz memory

I can't believe you guys can get the blue mics so cheap over there, It's almost cheaper if not the same price for us to buy a mixer and condenser studio mic than a blue yetti here.

Webcams are pretty good options for microphones, a webcam with a very good microphone can be had for as little as $50. AT and Blue mic's are obviously much better.

Also have an ATR-2500. Has all the features you'd need and sounds great. No complaints

Blue yeti should be right around 100$ and is a definite upgrade over the yeti.
