A microphone is not a standalone machine or gadget. Work such as podcast, game streaming, storyteller, audiobook reader, or recording music demands noise-free and crisp audio. And if your audience expects a noise-free or distortion-free sound, a single mic won't do the trick. You will require additional equipment, mainly mount gadgets such as a Microphone isolation shield, Shock mount & Pop filter, for a fantastic result.
Microphone shock mount
A microphone is a very sensitive piece of equipment. If you put a microphone on a stand using a microphone hard clip, it can still pick up all sorts of sounds from the floor traveling through the microphone stand. No matter how long or small the microphone stand is, the sound will travel without any restriction to the microphone and make all kinds of undesirable noises.
Besides that, it is common to contact the mic stand accidentally while using a microphone. It happens more often than you can count! Every professional uses a shock mount to ensure the accidental contact does not ruin the audio.
A shock mount works flawlessly and gives the audio content maker a more professional touch. It lets the mic sit in a safe "basket" with a suspension mechanism connecting with the main mic stand. And because the mic is suspended from the main frame, the sound wave's negative effects will be significantly neutralized.

A pop filter, also known as a pop shield, is a noise protection filter for microphones widely used to produce high-quality audio content. The filter is designed to eliminate popping sounds made from mechanical impact or fast-moving air while using plosives. Plosives such as 'P,' 'T,' 'D,' 'K,' 'G,' and 'B' deliver extra air to the microphone, which causes heavy breathing and bass sound.
If an audio content maker cares for the result, then investing in a pop filter is a sensible choice. It is easy to install and use and works flawlessly. You will certainly love the outcome if you were not using any pop filter before.
