To be honest I have no idea which mic Sal Kahn uses… However, I’ve found one that I think absolutely rocks.
The Blue Yeti USB Microphone might be one of the best around Here it is. It’s the Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone – Silver.
This mic seems to work well with both my Macbook and my iPad. I’ve used it to record Sal Khan style YouTube clips for my education and training business.
I’ve also used it with my iPad for music, although I think it really needs a powered USB hub to work more effectively with the iPad.
The sound quality is excellent and I’m convinced my voice sounds better through the Yeti than it does in real life. I bought it though the Apple Store but the link in the image above will take you to Amazon.
I’m not sure which is the cheapest option at the moment but I’ve had no regrets and I’m hoping to really put it to good use next year as I get large chunks of my training course set up online.
I use the Yeti USB microphone in conjunction with both GarageBand and more recently Logic Pro X on my MacBook.
I think it needs a pop filter… or at least I need a pop filter with it. And I’ve added this one to my set up.
If you want something for travel, the Yeti Blue seems robust. I’ve had no issues with it so far.
However, it is a bit on the heavy side because of the big condenser. This probably makes it better for home use unless weight it not an issue for you.
What microphone does James Altucher use for podcasting?
I looked into that here although he may have upgraded since then.
Microphone update as of 2020
I’ve had this mic for years now and it’s still going strong.

I am thinking to bye the same for making youtube vidios. what will you suggest.
I’d buy the same one again I think. The Yeti Blue is awesome in my opinion. I haven’t tried the alternatives however, so make sure you do your own research. I got mine via the Apple Store. Delivery was quick. Only other thing to think about is some kind of case or bag for it… that’s what I need next. Thanks for reading, Cheers, Graeme
