Microphones (Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB)

I've been looking for a new microphone recently, so I can start actually talking in my Youtube videos and Twitch streams. I currently have a Sennheiser PC333D, which is a great headset, but the included microphone is a bit finicky and difficult to set up properly to get good audio quality. I've been trying many different positions with it (that's what she said :P ) and the mic always seems to pick up my breathing way too much. The quality of the mic is fine, but positioning it is a PITA.

Anyway, I've been looking for good microphones to use. The Blue Yeti (or Snowball) are among the most popular, but I want with better quality and / or a better price. I think I found what I'm looking for. The Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone

The reviews are great for this, they say it's better then Blue microphones, and the Audio-Technica ATH2020, plus it has an XLR jack for when I have a more professional setup with multiple mics and cameras :) .

(By the way, I'm now using Amazon Affiliates for the Amazon links. I figure if I'm going to post links anyway, I might as well at least have some way of monetizing it. I'll only post links to products I, myself, am planning to buy. So I won't spam the links too much.)

Anyway, it's a great mic with a great price, maybe not as many features, but the only feature I care about is audio quality.
