Best USB Mic? AKG Lyra USB Microphone Review (USB-C and In Person Interviews! 🔥)

USB mics are convenient, but not all of them sound great. Meet the AKG Lyra USB Microphone. Mike Russell from Music Radio Creative brought one into the studio today to test drive.

Never seen it before, but my first impressions are besides the funky shape, it's one of the best USB mics I've ever seen. Here are the features:

1. Super easy to setup. Since it's USB, it's just plug-and-play.
2. USB-C connection, that's new! Apparently, connects to iOS and android devices, too. Wish I tested this. Another video coming soon after I pick one of these up for myself!
3. The ability to easily change patterns for solo recording (for podcasters and live streaming), tight and wide stereo for recording music, and the ability to record on BOTH sides of the mic for a sit-down interview. That's hot!
4. Ultra-HD audio quality.

Overall, I love it. 9/10, but want to get my hands on one and test it out even more. I really want to test it on my iPad pro. Imagine, bringing it on the go with you for interviews. Video coming soon.

Big thanks to Mike Russell from for sharing one of only 6 in the world with me before it gets produced and shipped out. It's now available in the link below.

      We’ll have to see how it stacks up to the $100 Rode Podmic and the Yeti. Good sponsor segment though.

        They didn’t sponsor this video, just FYI! But yes a very good mic!
