My wife wants a microphone to sing combined with background music from her iPhone. I thought an USB microphone to her laptop would work but they didn't work together. Then I got a mini amp that has RCA inputs and a BT connection to her phone.

So I need to get a microphone that can be plugged into the mini amp thru RCA or AUX mini- audio. This won't work I presume
This is condenser mic, which requires 48V phantom power to work. Many audio interfaces and mixers provide such 48V power to microphones via XLR cables. In your case, you'll need an audio interface that is compatible to iOS devices. IK Multimedia has several iRig models that are compatible with iPhones and iPads. On one end, iRid plugs to your iPhone, the other end if has XLR plug with 48V to connect to your microphone. But condenser mic is typically good at capturing details, especially high-end frequencies, but most are not good at filtering background noise out. In contrast, most dynamic microphones are directional and much better at filtering background noise. That's the reason that condenser mics like this are often found in studios or vocal booth and not on stage. You may need a quiet room and sound treatments in the room to reduce sound reflections & reverbs to get good recording out of this. You can find many other audio interfaces that are compatible with iOS devices here: https://www.sweetwater.com/c1058-...Interfaces

Quote from sligdillz :
Why wouldn't you feed High decibel signals into this microphone? Your input gain level on your mixer can always be turned down to lower the sensitivity of the microphone to accommodate High decibel signals. Alternatively you can record low decibel signal by turning up the input gain knob on the mixer thus increasing the sensitivity level. This is why you need a mixer or sound interface for this microphone. There is no input gain setting housed within the microphone. I have this microphone and it work really great for recording but knowing how to use it is crucial.
Specs on the product page say "Maximum SPL136 dB SPL". My preference however for loud guitar amps is a dynamic mic such as an SM57 or MD421. Loud guitar tends to be fairly compressed, and I don't see the point of putting a sensitive mic in front of it. I find condensers much more useful on things with a high dynamic range like vocals or acoustic instruments. Putting more electronics in the signal path is often a bad thing and can create more problems to chase down.

A recording engineer once told me, " If you don't like your guitar tone through an SM57, the problem isn't the mic, and no mic will fix it... unless of course it's placed in front of a different amp and perhaps, no especially, a different guitar player" Wink

If you don't already have a xlr setup then better to get something like Samson q2u which has usb and xlr option which gives you more flexibility and cost $60 which isn't that much more and cheaper than this microphone plus xlr setup . Also the Samson is very good quality microphone.

I have a Blue Yeti USB mic and want to switch to affordable XLR condenser mic. I mainly use the microphone to chat and play games with my friends on discord. Will this be a better microphone than the Blue yeti for that? I already have the USB interface.

Nice deal, if I hadn't picked up this studio condenser USB mic for $5 on a pricing error on Amazon earlier today (originally like $53). https://amzn.to/3cRBaPA

You can get an XLR cable with a standard amplifier input on the other end of the cable. A basic one from Guitar Center might be like $15-20.
Yes but this microphone is a condenser and needs 48v to work

If you want USB, this one at $13 seems like a good deal.

So, I'm currently using an AudioTechnica AT-2020. Anyone know if this is better or worse for just podcasting or spoken recording?

Not sure why it has to go to the iPhone directly while the track is playing?

1. USB Mic into computer to record into Garage Band
2. Playback song to her through headphones as she sings track.
3. Mix the music track back with clean audio in Garage Band
4. Export music.
5. Done

Not really. Google results are a shit show. You can never tell the quality of the info. The SD community is better. That is why ppl ask.

Ask your wife where she saw what she's looking for. Perhaps this is what she's referring to. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B088JZZQFX/

There are tons of these in Amazon. This microphone is bluetooth enabled. It has built in speakers. You connect your iPhone to it via Bluetooth. The music sound comes out of the microphone's speakers. This particular model has 2 speakers. You can then sing along. Optionally, you can also record.

I am sitting in front of this microphone. The mic itself is great for video conferencing/podcasts/twitch and the clarity is outstanding for the price- assuming you have the correct interface to hook it up. The stand however is awful and very much an afterthought in the package. Slight movements of the cable or the mic can knock it over. I would consider budgeting for that as well.
