Shure MV51 Digital Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
While SHURE may be well known for traditional microphones, this is a digital model that includes excellent design and performance. It has support for 16-bit and 24-bit audio, which gives you the best sound quality possible in digital recording. The sampling rate on this microphone is 44.1/48 kHz, which is lower than the Blue Microphones Yeti Pro, but is still more than sufficient for professional recording. This model has a set polar pattern of cardioid, which makes it best for recording unidirectional audio, especially podcasts and digital radio. Functionality with this microphone is excellent thanks to a mounting stand and included tripod mount. It has a headphone output connection along with volume controls and a mute switch for easy use and monitoring recording live.
