    The headphone mic's are one of the worst quality mics there are, certainly for recording purposes. If you want to make some good recordings, you then have to buy a professional mic, but they are very, very expensive. If you can afford, you certainly have to go for such a mic, otherwise i suggest to start with a good karaoke mic, for homerecordings these mics are good enough!

    Just read this to find out some more about microphones and all about home recordings:

    Btw, i've made some recordings using a karaoke mic, i don't own a professional mic, just listen to my recordings and decide if you are satisfied with the quality, otherwise you should go for a professional mic!!!

    I can't afford a professional mic, and don't really need one either. How much would a karaoke mic cost in India?

    I really don't know how much it will cost in India, i'm from the Netherlands and here i can buy it for ca. 10-20 Euro!

    All the pro mic that you get will be XLR.
    Which means 3 pin balanced output.

    However for plugging to your amp, you require a single 1/4" jack, or single 1/8" jack for plugging to comp.

    So you require certain wiring knowledge and some soldering skills.




    Crypt: you can get teh mic from me, if you want.
    Its a Nady SP-1
