We know that there are a lot of people out there who take karaoke a lot more seriously than some others. If you happen to be one of those said people, then you may be aware of the fact that to properly do karaoke, you need a dedicated karaoke microphone.
In this article, we have gathered together a series of really good microphones, each of which would be perfect for serious karaoke goers. We will review each entry and give you our honest opinion on the qualities of that microphone.
If you want to know which microphone we think qualifies as the best of the best karaoke microphones, we would suggest the BONAOK Wireless Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone.
A Spotlight On Some of The Best Karaoke Microphone 2020:
Singing Machine Official Carpool Karaoke Mic
If you have ever seen the show “The Late Show With James Corden” then this mic will instantly be recognizable as it is often used on a fun and popular segment on that show called Carpool Karaoke.
Well, given the popularity of that segment and the fact that it does relate to karaoke, we figured that the microphone that they use to do that segment would be the perfect option to start off this review list. However, don’t get us wrong, the Singing Machine Official Carpool Karaoke Mic isn’t just being included because it happens to be a famous name, it is actually a very well-made karaoke mic in general that deserves some recognition.
Alright, let’s start off by explaining what is unique about this particular microphone. The way that this works is the mic is capable of connecting to FM radio stations either through auxiliary cord or through a relatively stable Bluetooth connection.
The microphone then allows you to do karaoke alongside the music on the radio. While some may question the practicality of that, it can really help when it comes to making long car rides, long boat rides, or any other event with a radio nearby more bearable.
The microphone is, thankfully, quite easy to use. The front has a large LED screen that displays important information, and it has helpful volume and echo controls located directly on the front of the mic. So, you can actually do volume and echo adjustment directly on the fly without having to play around with the mic.
The next thing that we want to talk about is the surprising audio quality that the mic offers. We say surprising because whenever a product has a specific gimmick like the Singing Machine Official Carpool Karaoke Mic does, that is usually an excuse for the company to get lazy in other aspects of the product’s development. However, that doesn’t end up being the case here, the mic offers good all-around audio quality, but we will say that the volume could end up being a bit higher.
Before moving onto another product review, we do want to say that this is mic is a bit pricier (though not by much) than your average karaoke mic option.
- Good audio quality overall.
- Can be connected to any FM radio.
- Supports wired and Bluetooth connection.
- Surprisingly strong Bluetooth connection.
- Easy control scheme and volume/echo control.
- Volume could afford to be a bit better.
- A bit pricey for a karaoke mic.
BONAOK Wireless Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone
Moving on with our review list, we want to take a look at an entry that we think makes a very strong case for being considered the absolute best karaoke microphone currently on the market.
While that may sound like a massive exaggeration at first, we really can’t stress enough how well-made the BONAOK Wireless Karaoke Mic is and how many great features it sports. It is even available at a very reasonable price, so there is really nothing major to complain about when it comes to this microphone.
The first thing that we really want to draw your attention to concerning this microphone is the absolutely great control scheme that it boasts. As you can see for yourself, the BONAOK mic has a lot of buttons and switches located directly on the front of the mic.
There are separate volume switches for the music, echo, and voice volume (you can change each individually, and they go from medium to high). Furthermore, there are buttons that allow you to quickly cycle through songs (if it is paired up to something that supports that). Not only do we love the number of options that the BONAOK gives you, but we also love the fact that they are so easy to access on the fly.
Likewise, we really appreciate the sheer sound quality that this mic offers. As with other reviews on this list, you want to make sure that the karaoke mic that you are getting sounds good, since no one wants to listen to a bad-sounding microphone, no matter how good the actual singer themselves may be.
Thankfully, the BONAOK mic does an absolutely amazing job of projecting your voice and once you find the right setting combination, you are sure to be 100% satisfied with the job that the mic does.
Funny enough, the only issue that we can find with this karaoke mic has nothing to do with the actual microphone, but with the charging cable that comes with it (if that isn’t a sign of the quality of the mic then we don’t know what is).
The USB charging cable is sadly a bit on the cheap side and very prone to breaking, which restricts its usefulness somewhat. Thankfully, getting your own USB charging cable isn’t difficult or costly, so it ends up being more of a minor inconvenience rather than a serious flaw.
- Very good audio quality.
- Simple, convenient control scheme.
- Easily accessible button setup.
- Not too pricey, given the good quality of the mic.
- Included USB charging cable is cheap and breaks easily.
Bietrun Wireless Microphone
The next microphone that we want to review is quite a bit different than any other microphone that we have reviewed on this entire best karaoke microphone list.
The reason for this is because of the fact that the Bietrun Wireless Microphone is not a dedicated karaoke mic in the same way that other entries on the list are. Instead, it is a general Bluetooth microphone that can be used for karaoke. However, the quality it offers is good enough to make it deserving of a review on our article.
First and foremost, this mic offers some absolutely amazing sound quality. Because this is a high-quality mic, as opposed to a dedicated karaoke mic, it offers really good audio projection. It makes your voice always sound extremely crisp and perfectly clear; this is especially the case if you have the perfect settings.
On that note, we should now talk about the sorts of settings that this mic offers. The front of the mic has a very simple setup that quickly lets you tweak the three most important things from an audio perspective, which includes bass, treble, and echo.
It also lets you control the volume of the mic and the power. We have placed a big emphasis on this review list on finding microphones with intuitive control schemes and the Bietrun Wireless Microphone definitely has one of those.
There are two issues of note that we feel need to be mentioned concerning the Bietrun Wireless Microphone. The first thing that you should know is that this is a pricier option than your average karaoke mic.
At about $70, this mic definitely costs a lot more than any other karaoke microphone on our list. So, be aware of that fact before deciding to invest in this. The second issue is that the Bietrun does have a noticeably more complex setup process than most other options on this list. So, that is also something that should factor into your decision making.
- Produces great sounding voice audio.
- In-depth, but still easy to use control scheme.
- Let’s you easily control volume, echo, bass, and treble.
- Great connectivity.
- Fairly pricey as far karaoke mics are concerned.
- Does have a somewhat complex setup process.
BlueFire Wireless 4 in 1 Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone
For the next review we are going to be doing a review of a very reasonably priced, but still surprisingly high-performing microphone in the form of the BlueFire Wireless 4 in 1 Bluetooth Karaoke Microphone. This mic is a good option for anyone who just wants a cheap microphone that they know that they can rely on.
First off, let’s talk about the price of this microphone, which is very good. At only about $20, this isn’t drastically cheaper than any of the other entries on this list or anything like that, but it is definitely a bit cheaper than the average entry that has appeared on our review list. Obviously, these mics aren’t really expensive at all, but saving $10-15 is never a bad thing, is it?
Of course, it isn’t just the price of the BlueFire that is impressive, it is the fact that the microphone manages to provide good performance, while also still being cheap. The audio quality that the mic provides is pretty impressive when you consider how cheap it is. Your voice sounds pretty good and it works very well for a party atmosphere. Everyone can hear you clearly and there isn’t any static or anything like that. Again, this is really all that one can realistically expect out of such an inexpensive mic.
While we quite like the BlueFire overall, it is difficult to deny that one small issue with this mic is the fact that the quality of the Bluetooth connection isn’t quite as high as some other entries.
You are likely to lose connection a bit more often than you will with some other mics. Secondly, we also want to say that the mic is lacking in some advanced options, such as echo control or bass control. However, given the price of the unit, some issues like that are to be expected and you can’t hold it against the mic too much.
- A fairly inexpensive mic.
- Surprisingly good audio quality that is perfect for parties.
- Really good quality to cost ratio.
- Supports both Bluetooth and wired connections.
- Lacking some advanced options.
- Wireless connection could be more stable.
EARISE T26 Portable Karaoke Machine With Microphone
For this final review on our best karaoke microphones list, we are going to be doing a review of what is most assuredly the most unique entry on our list. As you can see for yourself, the EARISE T26 isn’t just a karaoke mic, but it is actually a whole karaoke setup, including both the mic and the machine.
We know that the main purpose of this article is to review karaoke mics, but since the article is also geared towards those getting into it for the first time, we figured that including a full kit wouldn’t be a bad idea either. So, that’s why we want to take a look at the EARISE T26.
The first thing that we want to deal with in this review is what exactly you get as part of this kit. Included in this kit is a full karaoke stereo, a microphone, and a control remote. Before moving on to talk about the mic, we want to say that the quality of the stereo is very good.
Not only is the audio quality very good, but it can also be connected (via Bluetooth, WiFi, or aux cord) to a pretty wide variety of music apps to give you an almost unlimited number of options for when it comes to using songs for karaoke.
Now, you might expect that because the mic is part of a larger kit, that the quality of the microphone would be low. However, we are happy to say once again that you would be quite mistaken. In fact, the quality of the EARISE T26 mic is actually surprisingly high. In fact, it is on par with some of the dedicated karaoke mics that we have reviewed elsewhere on this list.
- Contains everything that you need for a night of karaoke.
- Both mic and stereo deliver good audio quality.
- Relatively good bargain.
- Some may not want the portable machine.
Some Tips For Buying A Good Karaoke Mic
If you are new to karaoke, then it would be understandable that you have no clue what to do when you are buying a karaoke microphone. Since karaoke is such a fun thing to do at parties, weddings, and basically any get together, new people are always looking into karaoke.
So, this next part of our best karaoke microphones article will be dedicated to giving you some helpful tips that will make the process of buying a really good karaoke mic a lot simpler.
Easy Control Scheme
Something that we really mentioned quite a lot during the course of our best karaoke microphones review list was the importance of finding a mic with a really intuitive control scheme. The reason for this should be very clear, you don’t want to have to stop the signing fun to fiddle around with settings. The quicker and easier you are able to change the sound settings on the mic, the better it will be for everyone.
But what do we mean when we say “intuitive control scheme?” Well, as you saw from our review list, we think that the best option is to have the controls directly on the front of the mic. Being able to control things just by pressing buttons on the front of the mic is really helpful.
Echo, Treble, and Bass
In one of the reviews in our article, we mentioned that when it comes to voice audio quality, the three most important things are echo, treble, and bass. So, we thought that rather than just telling you to look for a karaoke mic with good audio quality, we figured that we would tell you why these things are so important.
If you care about making your karaoke mic sound as good as possible, then you want to invest in a mic like the BONAOK mic, since that has individual settings for each of these three.
Before signing off of our buying guide, we also want to talk about the importance of connectivity. As you hopefully picked up from our review article, there are a bunch of different ways to connect your karaoke microphone to a speaker or to some other device designed to project audio.
Regardless of what specific mic you go for, you want to make sure two things. Firstly, that the mic can be connected via auxiliary cord. Secondly, you want to make sure that the mic also supports crucial Bluetooth connectivity. These are the two most common methods.
