Karaoke has long been a popular entertainment that harmoniously fits into modern life. Karaoke is also a real psychological relief, because it is not in vain that in Japan, South Korea and China there are whole karaoke complexes, in which there are many separate rooms with good sound insulation. It is there that stress is relieved and a good mood is acquired. And it doesn’t matter at all whether the singer has a voice and hearing.
Karaoke microphones are used as part of the system. Using a wire, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, the microphone connects to a PC, laptop, smartphone, tablet. The gadget’s speakers produce a negative soundtrack, and the microphone itself serves to amplify the voice multiple times.
Karaoke microphones can be:
• built-in, if they were purchased complete with a karaoke system;
• autonomous, which are purchased separately.
A modern microphone has a speaker function, for this you only need a flash card with music, as well as a mixing function that will eliminate voice defects. Some karaoke microphones are equipped with a voice recorder function. Most of them have rechargeable batteries.
When buying a stand-alone karaoke microphone, you should find out if it is compatible with the karaoke system with which it will be used (can it be operated on your PC, TV, smartphone, etc.). Different models have different specifications.
The battery of a stand-alone microphone needs to be recharged periodically, this will be the key to its long-term operation. If this gadget is constantly used, for example, in a karaoke bar, then its protective mesh must be cleaned at least once every ten days, and also dried daily, avoiding moisture accumulation after active use. It is strictly forbidden to allow the microphone to fall on the floor and other possible mechanical deformations of the device.
Many will be able to sing well without a microphone, but if you want to feel like a professional vocalist, then it’s better to use it.
We will briefly review the five most popular models of karaoke microphones. They are of two types: condenser and dynamic. Condenser karaoke microphones have simply off scale sound sensitivity, but are very demanding on the equipment with which they are used. Therefore, most often this type of device is used by professional recording studios.
Dynamic karaoke microphones are used in 90% of “home” performances, which include most karaoke bars.
A good karaoke microphone is versatile, it is relatively inexpensive, and it is very popular not only among karaoke performers, but also among bloggers, streamers and aspiring musicians. The model should be universal, easy to use for both beginners and professionals. And, of course, you need to understand that the higher the price, the more opportunities the device has, respectively.
