White Hinterland

Hiya! My name is Casey, and White Hinterland is my little corner of the internet to talk all things audio.

I’m the voice and author of this blog. Since I was little I’ve loved music, and to this day I still sing in the car any chance I get.

This passion continued throughout high school where I played a variety of instruments, and organised our high schools choir practice.

I believe there’s a song for every possible mood, and music is something that can bring all types of people together.

Outside of my love for music, you can catch me ticking places off my travel list.

My all time favorite destination so far is London, where I had a lovely Sunday roast (and some wine of course) near the London Bridge!

Hopefully in 2021 I can tick the Great Barrier Reef off my travel list.

Perfect Sunday roast at the Old Thameside Inn, London Bridge

Microphones

Contrary to popular belief, a microphone is the most essential piece of the recording puzzle. Whether you are looking for the Best Gaming Microphone, or perhaps the Best Shotgun Mic for Film, it’s important to achieve the highest clarity audio for an immersive experience.

And of course, a business needs reliable and professional sounding audio. The Best Microphone for Conference Calls has a brilliant selection of professional sounding microphones. The Best Lapel Microphone is a must-have when presenting, or if you prefer a more discreet location.

Even if you aren’t involved in the music industry, microphones are still a staple piece of equipment. For those who online game, team communication is make or break in first person shooters. Whether you need the Best Computer Microphone or the Best Mic For Discord, I’ve tested them all!

If things get a bit wild on a Friday night, why not try some karaoke with the Best Karaoke Microphone? There's even a model for the kids, the Best Karaoke Machine For Kids, which is a great bit of fun.

We also looked out for the vocal recorders out there with the Best Mic For Recording Vocals, Best Choir Microphone, Best Microphone For ASMR, Best Condenser Microphones or even the Best Microphone for Voice Over. In addition, you may need one of our Best Overhead Drum Mics, or one of the Best Mic For Acoustic Guitar.

Technology has evolved leaps and bounds, with several wireless microphones available on the market. These can be handy when wiring isn’t possible. Fortunately, for those who need the Best Wireless Lavalier Microphone, or our article on the Best Wireless Headset Microphone for Church where you can find the best products from our testing.

If your audio equipment needs to be portable, our Best DSLR Microphones guide, Best Shotgun Microphone guide, or the Best Microphones for GoPro could be what you need. Alternatively if your phone or tablet deserves an upgrade, we have looked at the Best External Microphone for Android Phone
and Best Microphones for iPads.

And for those who have to buy something, but don't want to break the bank, the Best Cheap Microphone, or, we have the Best Condenser Microphone Under $200.

Setting up a podcast to reach thousands has never been easier before. Everyone has an opinion, which can make for some interesting debates on hot topics. At the minimum, you will need one of the Best Podcast Microphones, and one of the Best Microphone Pre Amp.

Headphones

If you’re like me and value high-fidelity audio, a pair of headphones that produce beautiful audio is essential. Unfortunately most studio grade headphones are expensive, however I have compiled a list of the Best Budget Audiophile Headphones to choose from. 

In addition, for your morning run a pair of the Best Bone Conduction Headphones quickly become a must-have. They use an interesting technology which allows you to listen to your favourite music, whilst also hearing your surroundings. Great when you want to get some exercise.

Podcasting is a great way to convey opinions, and reach a global audience. Being able to hear yourself through feedback stops you from shouting, and hearing your co-hosts clearly enables the natural flow of conversation. You can tell when low quality audio equipment isn’t being used, which is why I’ve reviewed the Best Headphones For Podcasting. Check it out!
