If you’re too close, your voice is booming through, and if you’re too far, your fans can’t hear what you have to say.
The writers at Radiospeaker.it have come up with a solution. Your mouth should be about one hand’s length away from the microphone. Simple as that. It’s an ideal distance that gives you enough room to feel comfortable and sound your best.
Of course variables come into play, such as the type of microphone you’re using, the volume of your voice, and different filters and additional tools you use, so be sure to record a few test runs. In general though, one hand’s length is a good rule of thumb to go by.
Try it out next time you broadcast, and let us know how well it works out!
