In addition, they can better handle different sound levels and frequencies, making them versatile for different types of recordings.

A USB microphone is ideal for simple recording at home, while a wireless microphone offers more flexibility for recording on the move. In addition, the sound quality of the microphone is important; pay attention to specifications such as frequency range and sensitivity to ensure the microphone meets your needs.

Second, you need to consider the microphone's compatibility with your existing equipment. Check whether the microphone has the correct connections for your computer, smartphone or other recording equipment.
