    Is there anything that is required to buy along with this kit? I assume it isn't as easy as plug it in with a USB.

    Most likely you are going to want an audio interface.

    At least the audio reviews are getting better.

    When it comes to this package offer tho, no, just get a at2020 or shure 57/58 and a standalone 100usd headset or a dt 770 + a cheap interface, this package seems to be overpriced and obviously marketed towards people who want to stream without doing any audio research.

    PS using a open headset with a condenser mic is a bad idea depending on how badly the sound bleeds and depending on how sensitive the mic is.

    Edit: from the soundcloud recordings in order of quality it would be:

    AT 2020 usb,

    Blue yeti usb,

    nails on a chalkboard

    Fox usb,

    nails on a chalkboard with extra amp.

    Nope! It's a USB mic and a normal 3.5mm headphones (with 1/4 adapter, if you want.) You're good to go.with just that.

    The bleed isn't bad enough to be picked up by the mic. I thought the same thing. The Shure is definitely a great sounding mic, too. So good for spoken word. I have to say though, I disagree on the applause the at2020 gets. I mean, yes, it sounds good, don't get me wrong, but when you really begin to compare lots of mics side by side (I've done somewhere around 20), it lacks warmth in my opinion. You can fix that easily in post but then, at that point, your choice of mic matters a lot less anyways if you're just retuning. I do like the At2020, and it's well respected, which is why I keep including it. It's just a bit overrated, IMHO. I prefer the FOX to it. I prefer the SM58 to it too, by a ton, actually.
