Whether you’re participating in online gaming or taking calls while you’re at the keyboard, there are plenty of times when you need hands-free audio. Headsets are a great way to record and receive audio in a single package. That being said, finding a headset with a high-quality microphone, good speakers, and comfortable build at an affordable price can be a challenge.
There are many different kinds of headsets out there, and not all of them will be relevant to your needs. One headset may have the best USB microphone for gaming, but is not as useful for work. Another might offer the features you want, but isn’t compatible with your device. Choosing the perfect starter headset is hard, which is why we at Movo want you to know about the best cheap USB microphone and headphone combo available.
The Movo HSM-1 USB Headset is the best budget USB microphone on the market. Coming in at half the cost of a comparable headset, the HSM-1’s integrated USB condenser microphone captures crisp audio with zero interference or signal noise. Communicate confidently with team members on web conferences and phone calls knowing that the mic’s crystal clear pickup will make your every word heard.
The HSM-1’s USB headset microphone also features a flexible gooseneck arm that allows for easy adjustment to the position that works best for you. The small USB microphone size and extendable headset also means that all head shapes and sizes are supported. The inline volume and mute controls built into the headset make this a good USB microphone for those who don’t want to be constantly adjusting their computer’s sound settings.
Best of all, the HSM-1 comes with a USB audio cable. Since practically all computers and laptops, PC or Mac, feature USB input, the HSM-1 boasts universal compatibility. The plug-and-play design means that there are no drivers or installs required to set up your mic, and the 6.5 foot cord means that you won't have to awkwardly crane your neck or be chained to your desk while recording.
