Gear Review: Samson Q2U Recording & Podcasting Pack
Amazon Link ($59)*:

The Q2U is a dynamic microphone which is ideal for podcasters and broadcasters because dynamics do a good job of rejecting ambient room noise.
The Q2U can connect via USB to your Mac or PC or to an iOS device such as your iPhone or iPad via USB3 to Lightning Camera Connector Kit.
You can also connect via XLR cables to an audio interface or mixer.
Headphone output with volume control at the base of the Q2U.
The Samson Q2U Recording and podcasting comes with a mic clip, desktop tripod stand with an extension piece, windscreen, XLR cable and USB cable.
This entire video was recorded using the Samson Q2U into the Zoom H6.
Accessories I recommend to replace the included tripod, etc.
