Plugable USB Microphone Review / Test

Today I review the Plugable USB-VOX Microphone; a decent USB microphone that is great for gaming and chatting online. This mic is listed as compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux. Full disclosure, this mic was provided to me by Plugable to conduct this review.

That poor keyboard gets key presses taken off it’s brief life as it’s brutalised for microphones tests!

Love ur reviews. Real world demonstrations on pattern pickup stuff. Not specs & charts that have little basis in fact. KUTGW

Planet Tyro says:

Hey, love your channel – on your settings i did notice the soundflower app and actually found it a bit of a pain to use – then found out Rogue Amoeba did a fork with the source code and made the pretty amazing LOOPBACK app commercially – maybe you should do a review on it since it’s pretty useful, cool and i know you want to mix it up and i think your audience would appreciate it – although… it is a bit pricey imo . but i did buy it 🙂

logan schmidt says:

please review the frisby stand alone microphone

djangosolarboy says:

Hey buddy, love your microphone reviews, and have actually made a few
purchases because of your suggestions, I do have a question though, you
said that you would do a versus series video on the ATR2100, 2005, and
Knox at some point, is that in the works or have you moved on from that?
I’m really interested in your opinion, I ended up getting the ATR2100,
it was good for a bit but then gave off a horrible buzzing noise and
ended up returning it, I ended up getting the Knox, I’m just curious as
to what you think in terms of difference in tones. Anyway keep up the
great work!

GAMER Shosir says:

Craftofant says:

I would really appreciate a review of the Yamaha AG03 or AG06. These are USB mixers but still…

FieryDiana says:

I mean it’s not a bad mic but, for $75 dollars you could do better

Aron Örn says:

Kshitij Srivastav says:

is it better than samson go?

Jarhead6 says:

Nice job

S B says:

You seem very helpful and i enjoy your videos. I have never been able to get a straight answer. I want to use a microphone and headphones for streaming. The Scarlett Solo for my XLR mic but how does that work with My sennheiser Hd 598 headphones when i have a headphone amplifier? I want to have louder sound from headphones from gaming but i have no idea how im supposed to hook it up all together or if i can Run Scarlett solo with headphone amp separately at the same time with no problems since ones a mic and others headphones.

Rodrigo Guimarães says:

That’s the best USB mic I’ve seen so far.

Electronics For Fun says:

Resine says:

Scrolling down few viedos, your promised funny shirts !

Omix32 says:

Anyone know where I can find advice about how to properly set up a mic? Bought the Samson C01UPRO after watching the review and it’s super quiet in discord and skype. (the usb version so as I understand it no preamp/phantom solution)

Dan Magoo says:

Looks like it’s trying hard to be an AT2020USB, and I was thinking why wouldn’t someone get that instead, but….I see the AT mic is now $128, a real difference from $75. The ATR2500 is good, and currently $79, if you don’t mind silver instead of black (and some wobbly plastic buttons), and it has a headphone jack for live monitoring. Admittedly, I like AT mics, or at least prefer a brand name. But this mic does look cool, and sounds decent for just talking. Another great review, as always.

NS says:

I love Troll 2

DestinysPowerOfStupidity says:

Hey Bandrew, do you vape? I can see that vape mod in the background as well as very up front at 3:25
