Microphones are an important and often overlooked piece of DJ equipment. Every professional DJ should have microphones.  DJs need microphones to run a wide range of events – proms, parties, corporate events, weddings, family reunions – in fact any gig that requires speech over music. There are many types of microphones. Here are some examples:

handheld usb microphones
wireless microphones
usb desktop microphones
condenser microphones
speaker microphones
noise-cancellation microphones for voice recorders
lapel microphones
omnidirectional microphones
wired microphones

Wireless microphones are good at getting your voice out to the audience while allowing you complete freedom of movement. Shure microphones, both wired and wireless, offer the clearest sound with lightweight sleek designs and set the industry standard with their high quality performance. A few other companies that sell DJ microphones, wired and wireless, are Gemini, Samson and Behringer.
Every DJ should own a failsafe handheld wired cardioid microphone to plug directly into their sound system. A good wired microphone can overcome unexpected interference that can hinder wireless transmission. It is an investment that can last for years.
We recommend at least two reliable microphones – one wireless headset microphone and one handheld mic – as basic equipment for any professional DJ who wants to make the most out of his or her spinning skills.
