Some of you have been asking what equipment I use as a voice actor. Here are some of the products I use as a professional voice actor and where you can get them.

1 – My headphones.

There are the Sony MDR7506 Professional Large Diaphragm Headphones. I’ve been using them for a long time. I haven’t worked in radio since 2009 but I still use them today as my go-to headset for voice-over work.

You can find them on Amazon by clicking – HERE.

2 – My Microphone

For all my recordings I use the Sennheiser 416 Microphone. This is the mic that all the professionals use when doing promo work for TV ID’s and radio station liners.

You can get your own Senheizer 416 Mic by clicking – HERE.

If you’re going to use a shotgun mic for all your voice-over work you need a pop filter that’s made for a shotgun mic.

3 – Soundproofing

Finally, you’re going to need a quiet space to do all your voice-over work. To make a space really quiet you need soundproofing.

4 – A Computer

Finally, you need a good fast computer. Not a gaming computer but fast enough to run multiple programs and it needs to be a solid-state computer too. No moving parts! This will prevent any noise you don’t want!

And that’s all you need to get started. If this info was helpful let me know.
