Our No.2 Recommendation for YouTube


If you own a Shure PG27USB, you do not need more than a laptop, a headset. With this set up, tasks like a podcast are done as easy as true the plug-and-play. But also in the conventional XLR variant of the Shure PG27 microphone, it convinces with solidity and flexibility even for Tour Recording. This is something normal side-addressed microphones are really not known for as one of their strengths.

Therefore we can recommended the Shure PG27 USB microphone for YouTube / Podcasting / Gaming and even quite good music recordings.

Sound Quality & Possibilities:

Shure PG27 USB Review - Multi Purpose MicrophoneThe heart of the system is a capsule with renal characteristics. The Shure PG27 USB was sound-optimized for the recording of voice and vocals. When we tested it, it was also able to convince us with its ease of use when recording acoustic instruments. The transmission range is specified by the manufacturer with condenser microphone typical 20 Hz to 20 kHz.

On board is an integrated attenuation element, often referred to as a pad function, which can reduce the level of loud signals by -15 dB, so that a real dynamic of 135 dB can be achieved. The built-in A / D converter operates with 16 bits at 48 kHz.
