Ep39: The Google Show
Ask Mike Anything:
Question: Do I need expensive headphones to record my podcast or are Apple earbuds good enough?
Answer: I do recommend you upgrading from the Apple earbuds if possible to headphones that will give you a flatter/cleaner sound so you can really hear any issues in your recording.
*Tip:*Use your Apple buds for quality control as many of your listeners use them so you need to know how your show sounds on many different devices.
