I am curently using a cheap $15 microphone and my recordings have a really noisy&ugly background. I don't know what's the cause of this: the cheap microphone, the sound card or the software I'm using to record.

If it is the microphone, could you guys recommed a good one, in the $50-$100 price range? I am not looking for something very professional, but something better than you average microphone.

Really appreciate your help.

I have a Sennheiser PC160 headset, although I use it for gaming and not voice recording - the sound through the phones are brilliant and from what people tell me, my voice is very clear and crisp through its microphone. They cost me ~£55 (~$105).

I use Plantronics DSP 400  for my podcasts and for communicating with my co workers. It is about 40 to 50 Us. I am extremely happy with it.

Traveling East in search of instruction, and West to propagate the knowledge I have had gained.
