You're stuck at home day in, day out and your sweaty ears are starting to go numb from the amount of time you've had a gaming headset (opens in new tab) strapped to your skull. We get it. But you need to chat, you need to stream, you need to get on a video call and keep in touch with friends and family, so why not grab one of the best microphones (opens in new tab) around and give your ears a break?

But, like so many other communication accessories, microphones can be a little bit of a scarce commodity right now. That's certainly a problem for the best webcams (opens in new tab) you can buy, but we've got our little deals bots on the crawl to find any and every deal they can to help you find webcams in stock (opens in new tab), but we're also setting them to work making sure you can get microphones too.

It's not just a question of giving your sweaty head a break from even the best gaming headsets, a good mic can be a seriously versatile addition to your gaming setup. Quite apart from helping you clearly bark orders at your gaming clan, it also means you can jump on the streaming bandwagon and make your fortune. That's pretty much guaranteed when you make a Twitch account, right?

Dave has been gaming since the days of Zaxxon and Lady Bug on the Colecovision, and code books for the Commodore Vic 20 (Death Race 2000!). He built his first gaming PC at the tender age of 16, and finally finished bug-fixing the Cyrix-based system around a year later. When he dropped it out of the window. He first started writing for Official PlayStation Magazine and Xbox World many decades ago, then moved onto PC Format full-time, then PC Gamer, TechRadar, and T3 among others. Now he's back, writing about the nightmarish graphics card market, CPUs with more cores than sense, gaming laptops hotter than the sun, and SSDs more capacious than a Cybertruck.
