Earthworks Audio Ethos XLR microphone review: Perfect broadcast audio for creators

Microphones are critical for almost every modern workspace. The simplest mics work fine for video calls but don’t offer much versatility. Content creators tend to spring for a mic that covers more avenues like video narration and live streaming, usually starting with a USB all-in-one solution.

The next step up is often XLR, an analog alternative that usually offers less latency and higher fidelity recordings. It’s not the easiest hardware to approach for beginners since you can’t plug XLR cables directly into your average desktop Windows PC.
