If you spent any time with our picks for the best podcast gear, you’ll know how important the pop filter is for getting an even better audio. However, you might want to consider a microphone shield if you’re looking to up the sound quality/isolation even more. If the XLR format doesn’t work for your setup though, check out the USB-friendly AmazonBasics Desktop Mini Condenser Microphone for just $43.
