Do you desire to start a podcast and you’re wondering what kind of equipment you need to make that happen?
You don’t need to look any further.
In this article, we’ll give a list of ten audio recording equipment you need for your podcast studio.


  1. Microphones
    A microphone device amplifies your voice so you can be heard clearly. A microphone converts sound waves to electrical currents and feeds it into an amplifier for your podcast.
    It is best to get a microphone for your podcast studio and not make use of your computer’s built-in microphone as this is more likely to pick up ambient sound and background noise, and will sound less professional.
    You can get an analog, USB/XLR dynamic or condenser mic depending on your recording needs.
  2. Shock Mount
    This ensures that surface vibrations do not reach the microphone. A shock mount absorbs surface vibrations such as sounds from tying on your keyboard, microphone repositioning, and any other movements. It prevents these vibrations from translating into your podcast recording as noises.
    Preferably, you should purchase a shock mount of the same brand as your mic, so it can be compatible with your mic.
  3. Mic Stands
    A mic stand helps you set up your microphone and pop filter together. It also helps you to position your microphone properly so that you’re able to speak into the microphone without bending forward or downward.
    There are several kinds of mic stands such as tabletop mic stands, bendable desktop boom arms, etc. Find one that is convenient for your budget, or get a microphone that comes with it’s own stand.
  4. Pop Filter
    A Pop Filter helps you capture vocals in a way that makes them sound great. It absorbs and minimizes air blasts from your words, such as your P’s and Q’s, before these air blasts reach your microphone. There is need to find a Pop-Filter that works for your choice of microphone.
  5. Computer
    Your computer or laptop helps in audio capture, podcast editing, export and publication. You can use the computer you have or get a laptop product that’s best for audio production.
  6. Headphones
    Headphones help you monitor your audio quality while recording your podcast. With a headphone, you hear your own voice when recording, and you’re able to detect noise and adjust accordingly so you don’t have to do a retake.
  7. Headphone Amplifier
    A multi-channel headphone amplifier is needed for your headphones so as to maximize the sound quality of each headphones. A headphone amplifier works by raising low-voltage audio signal to a sufficient level, and then converts it into sound waves by the speakers inside your headphones. It creates clearer and purer signal for your headphones.
  8. Cables
    An electrical cable is an assembly of one or more wires running side by side or bundled, which is used to carry electric current. Cables work by connecting two or more devices, and enabling the transfer of electrical signals or power from one device to the other.
    Get a cable that works with your microphone and other equipment such as mixer, audio interface, etc.
  9. Audio Interface
    An audio interface works as the bridge that converts the microphone’s audio signals into digital so it can be sent to your computer for playback, mixing, and upload. It maintains the quality of the original audio and eliminate interference, delays and time distortions.
  10. Mixer
    An audio mixer accepts, combines,  processes and monitor audio.
    It combines multiple signals and routes them to a common output for recording or amplification.
    A mixer works by improving your audio quality through it control of inputs, output and sound levels.
