Looking to buy a new microphone

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey!
I'm looking to buy a new microphone for podcast/stream/skype'ing but i know absolutely nothing about microphones so need help!
I'd want something with this characteristics:

- budget: ~80€
- noise cancellation, to avoid any sort of fans/background noise
- good pickup volume, or whatever you'd call it, since the microphone is to stand at around ~20inches far from my mouth; definitely don't want something "quiet"
- USB connection
- a bonus but not mandatory, mic volume regulation & mute button

From what i searched around abit i know there's a couple of models from Samson and also AudioTechnica but i don't really know what suits my needs, so please help biggrin.gif

This is the one that I have just bought but it hasn't been delivered yet so I can't comment on the performance just yet.
