How do you find ‘the one’ that is made just for you? You scratch your head, your shout and you kick that innocent table; but none of it really helps you. You finally google ‘which microphones should I buy?’ And are visiting multiple pages which confuse you more than they really help you. Just when you are about to give up and sale for the not-so-good microphone you happen to visit this page.

We went through the best of microphones available in the market and narrowed down our list to the top 7 of them, to help you make the right decision. Are all, you are one of a kind and need the best to nurture your potential.

Having said that, read on to find ‘the one’ for you. The First On The List:

Shure SM57 (Type: Dynamic)
Well, this one’s legendary. If you really want to go for the best and not look for the budget, stop reading further and take this one home.

To begin with, it comes at Rs. 6800 (roughly $105). This is the cheapest it gets. Its buyer-friendly price along with its great features makes it a #1 pick.

Effective Polar Pattern:
First things first, the Shure SM57 has an extremely effective cardioid pickup pattern that does a great job in minimizing the background noise while focusing only on the main sound, which would be yours. So, even if someone happens to make some noise around you in the middle of your breath-taking performance, you wouldn’t have to worry.

Great Frequency Response:
It has a great tailored frequency response. It ranges from 40 Hz to 15 KHz which works if you are a guitarist.

This one didn’t get your attention? Never worry, we have got a lot more in store for you. The Second On The List But No Less Than The First:

The Rode NT1-A (Type: Condenser)
Priced at Rs. 17,900 ($288), The Rode NT1-A comes with an efficient cardioid pattern too and what makes it stand out from our #1 contender is its superb combinati on of high quality sound and its overall popularity. This one’s for you if you are not bound by your budget limitations. Rode NT1-A is the most sought a er microphone for home studios.

Extremely Light:
It weights at about 326.00 gm which is extremely light for a microphone having these features. Its lightness is what makes it compact and handy.

Ultra Low Noise:
The Rode NT1-A has a self noise of only 5dB (A). So you can rest assured that the microphone will not add its voice with yours.
Now that we have had a look at the best ones, it’s me to move on to their alternatives. The SM57 and NT1-A are the best of their categories that is, in dynamic and condenser type.Clearly you are not happy with the top two, or maybe you are and you still want to know what the other five on the list are. Well then go ahead and take a look at our other five.

Shure SM7B (Type: Dynamic)

Yes, this is the one that was used by Michael Jackson to record vocals for his Thriller LP. Need we say more? For quite some me now, the above stated fact has helped market the SM7 series on its own. And what more marketing could it need? The latest in the series is SM7B.

It comes with a flat, wide ranged frequency response (50 Hz to 20 kHz) accompanied with a bass rolloff and mid-range emphasis control. Highly effective pop filters does help in eliminating explosive breathe sounds, more so for close-up vocals.

The SM7B is available at Rs. 46,599 (roughly $752), which is not much considering the ‘King Of Pop’ himself used this to record one of his greatest works. 
The other dynamic one:

Top 7 Best Computer Speakers Between $100-400

1. AVerMedia Ballista Unity Gaming Speakers 
In the midst of your gaming world lies an incredible auditory journey. Unity speakers are the guide through this adventure. Game audio is distinct from home theater or any other audio types, and your speaker system must be attuned to this world. No warrior steps onto the field of combat without a weapon of resonance. Unity prolongs optimal sounds long after your game is finished. Configured specifically for gaming environments, you'll encounter crystal clear high frequencies and rich throaty bass sounds with lessened distortion. This is the sound of gaming come to life.It is developed  with total 40W you’ll encounter crystal clear high frequencies and rich bass with lessened distortion.This is very good for gaming too,The full range subwoofer combined with intense mid and clear high tones delivers  a true to life gaming audio.The volume and headphone jack as well as adjustable bass control to allow for quick adjustments to enhancec sounds to suit various games.It can be wall mounted theese solid base and built in keyhole accomodates flexilble setup options With the added extended cable, mount and set up your satellite speakers with ease.

2. Logitech Z623
It is very sturdy,attractive speakers,plenty of power and perfectly decent clarity is shown.The setup is definitely a step up from the Z2300s design-wise. Although I think the “puck” setup can be nice if done right, the on-satellite controls make for less cable clutter, and the Z2300’s puck felt like a piece of junk anyway. These speakers have a much more solid feel, though some may have preferred a screen in front of the grill and prominent THX branding. The matte black finish and exposed grills are nice in their own way, though, and the satellites have a substantial but pleasing shape. The subwoofer is kind of a beast: 12″ wide, 11″ tall, and 9″ deep doesn’t sound so big — until you try putting it under your desk.I feel the Z623s have a relatively small sweet spot, being somewhat directional rather than room-filling. You lose a fair amount of definition outside perhaps a 30-degree cone, which is to be expected. Unlike truly directional speakers, though, you won’t need to sit at a certain angle to enjoy your songs. Stereo separation and location is excellent; these are great for gaming.The Z623s are definitely worth your money, at least if you don’t need surround sound. They’re powerful, can be made to produce great sound with a little tweaking, and are convenient for a desktop setup. 

3. Genius Hi-Fi (SP-HF500A) 
This brings you new two-way Hi-Fi wood speakers in a total of 14 watts, SP-HF500A. With a tweeter inlaid, SP-HF500A delivers crystal clear treble in a small space. The system combines 3” speaker driver with improved sound structure design to deliver great bass. Additional features include an extra line-in jack for connecting to an iPod, MP3 player, or CD player without disconnecting the speakers from your PC and a headphone jack for private listening.s classic beauty with burnished black panel. No matter if you’re listening to music, playing games or seeing movies via your PC or notebook, you get a double benefit from hearing and vision at the same time. For more detailed information, contact your local sales representative.It has a line-in,headphone jack and volume control.The package comes with 2 piece of speakers and an multi-language user's manual.

4. JBL Pebbles Plug and Play Stereo

The new JBL Pebbles 2.0 audio system raises the bar on your computer entertainment experience, with one-step USB plug and play. Its compact, award-winning design incorporates smart cable management that keeps your table clutter-free. A built-in rotating volume control syncs with that of your computer.

Expand your listening options by connecting your MP3 or mobile device through an aux-in port. Available in a range of striking colors, the JBL Pebbles is truly designed to please.Very nice sound for the size and price. Some midrange presence and a bit short on the highs and of course the bass given the size a great choice. Good volume too without distorting.

5. Bose Companion 20
Proprietary technology and an advanced port design make your music, games and videos come alive with striking clarity and impressive low notes at any volume. And all that sound pours from just two speakers—no need for a bass module. With a few quick connections, you can enjoy the wealth of content on your computer with rich Bose sound.An advanced port design and powerful drivers are key to the low-note performance that adds depth to music, games and videos. Anyone listening for the first time might scan the floor for a subwoofer, but there's none to be found. All the sound comes from just two sleek speakers.A unique control pod pairs a fair amount of function with its form. The pod features rotational volume control and one-touch mute functionality, plus convenient dual inputs for connecting headphones and/or a second audio source.

6. Bose Companion 5
You'll find theater like sound on your desktop.Five-speaker systems are great for home theater—but they’re not so sensible for your laptop or PC entertainment. That’s why we developed Companion 5 speakers. They’re designed for 5.1-encoded music, games and movies, using just two desktop speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass module . You’ll hear multichannel sound in a way that seems to surround you—without the clutter of five speakers. And setup is easy, with a single USB connection to your computer.It is Specially engineered speaker arrays come fully assembled on stands for optimum performance and more usable desktop space.There is Active electronic equalization balances low, mid and high frequencies for more natural tone and clarity.A Compact Acoustimass module provides clean low frequencies, allowing the desktop speakers to be very small without sacrificing performance. Module can be hidden neatly under your desk.Single USB connection links the system to your computer. No special software, sound card upgrade, adapters or complicated wiring needed.Proprietary integrated signal processing delivers lifelike performance at almost any volume level.

7. Logitech Z906
Although this 5.1-channel home cinema package is primarily intended for use with a PC, it’s equally at home in an AV environment thanks to its generous range of connections and features – particularly its THX certification, which means it satisfies George Lucas’ exacting standards for movie playback.As for the subwoofer, it’s cube-shaped and compact, which shouldn’t pose major problems whether you’re shoving it under a desk or behind the TV, and is styled to match the satellites. It’s a side-firing design with an 8in driver, and is equipped with audio decoders, a 165W amplifier and all of the system’s connections.These include three digital audio inputs (two optical and one coaxial), which will come in handy if you want to connect multiple sources simultaneously (a DVD or Blu-ray player, Sky box and games console for instance). There’s also a six-channel direct input for connecting PCs, an analogue stereo input and a 3.5mm input for MP3 players and the like. There’s also a panel of springclip terminals for the supplied speaker wire, and these are also found on the back of each speaker, instead of binding posts. It’s a shame there are no HDMI inputs or HD audio decoding, which would have made this more suitable for use with Blu-ray players and games consoles.

One of the system’s most appealing features is the control console. This is a small desktop unit that plugs into the back of the subwoofer and allows you to adjust the volume, switch between the various sound modes and adjust the levels for each channel. This is obviously of greater use to those using the Z906 as a desktop PC system, but when using it in a traditional home cinema configuration you can use the supplied remote to control those settings, so either way you’re onto a winner.The console features a large volume dial in the middle, surrounded by a ring of LEDs that indicate the volume level and flash when in Mute. To the right of the dial is a curious-looking cluster of orange lights that represents the layout of the speakers in a traditional 5.1 setup – the point of this is to show you which channel is selected when adjusting the levels. 

On the other side of the dial are rows of lights indicating the currently selected input (each one numbered to correspond with the rear panel) and the current sound mode.These modes enhance stereo signals with different effects. They include Stereo 3D, which adds a ‘3D’ surround effect through all speakers; Stereo 4.1, which plays the stereo signal through fronts, rears and sub; and Stereo 2.1, which plays the signal through the fronts and sub. You can, of course, turn them all off and listen to sound in its natural form. Although its connections and decoding fail to cater for HD audio formats like Dolby True HD or DTS HD Master Audio HD, the Z906 can decode regular Dolby Digital and DTS bitstreams through the digital inputs.The speakers boast a frequency range of 35Hz and 20kHz, and each one features a 3in polished aluminium phase plug driver. Once you’ve got over the rather cryptic method of adjusting levels, the system is easy to use. The supplied remote is small and buttons are sparse, but this simple array covers every function – volume, mute, and input, level and sound mode selection.Its price is $379.00.

Best Over Ear Headphones With Mic

There is no doubt that the biggest music enthusiast and audiophiles require the best headphones for music listening. There is a huge amount of thinking, science, and technology put into the making of the headphones to give out the sound in a particular manner. The sound can be optimised in various ways, and enjoying the music is way more important than just picking up the headphones looking at brand or style. There are numerous factors that you should consider before buying the best over ear headphones with mic. Below is the information given about everything you need to know about those factors.

Over-Ear headphones commonly known as circum-aural headphones or around-ear headphones are the most common and comfortable headphones to use. Over-Ear consists of a comfortable headband and large driver casings, the ear cups cover your ears entirely instead of just resting on them. The factors which count in making the best over ear headphones are mentioned below.

Noise-Cancelling facility-Headphones that work on the technology of noise-cancelling are the best. This technology eliminates the surrounding noise and gives you the amplified version of music you are listening to. The headphones that use active noise-cancelling technology make use of a small microphone that picks up the ambient noise and produces noise in the frequency that is opposite and hence cancels out the noise. The active noise-cancelling technology doesn’t provide much help when the noise varies too much because the microphone can’t pick up the noise quickly and make adjustments to different frequencies. Besides, noise-cancelling headphones are great to use while you are in a noise environment like travelling in an aeroplane, or in a factory.

Gaming-To enhance the gaming experience, there are headphones that are especially designed for gaming purpose. Such headphones have a very powerful microphone for voice chatting and are designed to enhance the sound effects. Gaming headphones might not be of great help in music listening as they are best suited for gaming purposes.

Wireless versus Wired Headphones-Wireless headphones are free of cables and cords and are fully comfortable while moving around. Wireless work on one of the three main technologies of transmission namely Bluetooth, Infrared and Radio frequency. The Radio Frequency technology functions well even at large distances. The Infra-red technology works best in short ranges. The Bluetooth technology has a range limit of 30m.

The number of drivers-Drivers are the core components of a headphone which convert the electrical signal given to the headphone into a sound signal that is audible to a human ear. There are a variety of drivers used into the making of the headphones like balanced armature drivers, dynamic (moving coil) drivers, electrostatic drivers, planar magnetic drivers, and many other drivers. They make of different types of technologies in powering the sound. The best sound quality of your headphone depends on the number of drivers and the type of drivers used into the making of the headphone. So, before buying any over ear headphone, make sure you have checked the type of driver used that is best suited for you.

Opened-back and Closed-back headphones-There are two types of headphones namely opened back and closed back. In the opened back type of headphones, the sound from the earbuds escapes into the environment. And in the closed-back headphones, there is no leakage of the sound and you get the full powered sound in the best quality. There are advantages and disadvantages to both the kind of headphones.

The Frequency Response-The headphones are designed to be heard in the human range frequency. However, there are some headphones which extend the human range frequency. Such sounds may not be heard by the human ears but the little details could be experienced and felt to a small extent. Always check the frequency response provided by the headphones before buying one.

Imaging and Sound staging-Imaging and sound staging are the capabilities of the headphones in creating an approximate image and sonic stage inside your mind. Headphones which keep a good capability of sound staging and imaging are the best ones as they give the experience of live performance. Check if the headphones you are selecting provide the best performance of these two.

Impedance-Impedance indicates the quantity of power required to drive the headphones. The headphones with low impedance need minimal power to drive and can be used with the devices having weaker or lower amplification like any portable device, media players, and smartphones. There are chances of blowing out if a large amount of amplification is given to them. The high impedance headphones need amplifiers that are dedicated or a large amount of amplification to drive and hence deliver a driven and strong performance. There are no chances of blowing out as such headphones are designed to handle increased amplification. Hence, while buying an over ear headphone with microphones, check the impedance of the headphone and make a selection based on your source device.

For people who love to wander away from the TV and still want to listen to the TV, Radio frequency is the technology for you.

§ The quality of the sound

It is a very common problem in wireless headphones that there is a noise disturbance which ultimately affects the quality of the sound. This doesn’t mean every headphone gives out a bad quality. There are headphones which work perfectly fine but the volume should also be kept at an optimum level. There are few headphones which are much louder than other headphones but if the volume isn’t loud enough to eliminate the ambient noise then it is advisable to go for another pair of wireless headphones.

§ The life of battery

For the operation of wireless headphones, batteries are required. The headphones that are of high quality need more than 30 hours of usage before you can change or replace the batteries. Headphones that are of average quality give only 20 to 25 hours of usage. If the battery life is less it could be a problem as the battery might die anywhere in the middle of the movie or any show that you are watching. There is a charging base station for the best set up for the wireless headphones. The charging base station is next to the TV and the headphones get connected to them and you could charge your headphones when not in use. This way there is a constant availability of charge in your headphones and you could save your money as well.

Comfort also plays an important role while buying a wireless headphone. The person who uses it must be really comfortable with them.

If such facilities are not provided then you ears are more likely to get tired after a usage of short duration. It is better to go for lightweight wireless headphones as they are really comfortable and convenient too. The head straps of a wireless headphone should be adjustable in order to provide maximum comfort.
