The world of podcasting has grown exponentially, to the point where it feels like one in five celebrities has a podcast now (not an official statistic). If you’re a budding podcaster, what this means for you is that it’s more important than ever to get your podcast to sound as pristine as possible. But do you need to sign a $100 million podcast exclusivity deal with Spotify as Joe Rogan did, in order to compete with said famous people and afford the best podcasting microphones and audio interfaces to get you set up?
Absolutely not — the technology has moved along so much that there are now audio interfaces for podcasting to suit almost every budget under the sun. And yes, you should definitely go for an audio interface as well as a microphone if you can for the best sound results (more on this at the end). But with so many interfaces to choose from, you can be left confused and overwhelmed. Fear not, Headliner has assembled this premier league table of the best audio interfaces for podcasting, whether you want to pinch the pennies or splash the cash. Let’s get vocal!
