Blue Yeti Microphone Review for ASMR ArtistsWith ASMR videos becoming more and more popular, new ASMR artists are coming out of the woodwork in droves, leaving ASMR listeners with a multitude of videos to choose from. This is great for ASMR fans but not so great for ASMR artists because what is starting to happen is that viewers are becoming very picky about what they choose to watch.

How to Read Microphone Specifications for ASMR

asmr microphonesUnless you are a bit of an audio geek, you have probably never really sat down and studied your microphone’s specifications. In fact, most people simply buy a microphone because either it’s cheap, the guy at the store said it was a good one, or they read a few reviews on the internet for a good sounding microphone. Rarely do they actually consider the specifications and what they mean.

We did the same until we really got serious about our microphone choices and it took us a long time to wade through technical jargon spouted by the audio experts. It’s actually not that easy to find information about microphones that is spelled out in layman’s terms so this is our attempt below.

So this is a easy to read guide just to help you feel confident about what you are buying when you go searching for a microphone. read more

This is a microphone test I did for the 3Dio Free Space Pro Binaural Microphone. We love this microphone and have started to use it for our ASMR videos. It creates an awesome binaural sound and is perfect for ASMR artists as it allows you to attach a camera right in front of the microphone…absolutely perfect for creating role play videos.

It’s kind of weird looking as you can tell from the image below but it does a great job.
