Based on our comparisons and many hours of research, here are our 5 gear recommendations for doing karaoke at home.

1 – A microphone to amplify your vocals

To do karaoke… you need something to sing and therefore equipment to capture your voice. That’s where the microphones

come in.

Your singing sessions don’t require a lot of equipment, so it’s always a good idea to look for relatively affordable solutions rather than exhausting your budget with professional microphones.

Our recommendation

The t.bone TWS One A Vocal

This affordable microphone is the ideal model for karaoke fun without the constraint of a wire. It’s aimed at an amateur audience who wants clear, feedback-free sound. Only the most demanding could find something to complain about.

54,00 € on Thomann

A wired alternative

Shure SV100-W

This model is proposed by a recognized brand and allows you to enjoy a good sound despite its reduced budget. It also comes with the necessary cable, unlike other similar products.

2 – A sound bar to fill your ears

In order to make the most of your guests’ voices, it is important to invest in a sound system worthy of the name. There are 3 different solutions for this.

The sound bar

is the most interesting solution for everyone thanks to its easy access both in terms of price and installation. All you need is a cable… and off you go!

Our recommendation

Yamaha YAS-207

This sound bar offers excellent value for money thanks to the presence of DTS Virtual X which immerses you in the atmosphere by creating the equivalent of a 5.1 audio system. It’s as suitable for movies as it is for music.

3 – Home Cinema, guaranteeing total immersion

The most demanding can invest an extra budget to equip themselves with a complete home cinema. Whether in 5.1 or 7.1 surround, this system remains the most immersive on the market thanks to the multiplication of speakers around your room.

Our recommendation

Onkyo HT-S3800

Even if its compatibility is marked by the absence of Dolby Vision support, this model remains a more than satisfactory home cinema. On the one hand, because of its small price, and on the other hand, because of its sound quality and its careful construction.

4 – The connected speaker, versatility in all circumstances

A much more recent arrival on the market, connected speakers aim to revolutionise the field of home audio by offering a versatile solution that is totally adaptable to your needs.

Although they were originally designed to listen to music and respond to your requests with the help of a voice assistant, we are increasingly noticing that manufacturers are proposing more advanced solutions that allow them to be transformed into systems adapted for use with your television.

5 – A mixer for those who dream of being a pro

Mixers are the ideal solution for combining several microphones while managing different sound levels. Neophytes can turn to basic solutions but it is always wise to have some additional settings such as gain and balance management.

Our recommendation

Behringer Xenyx 502

This mixer is designed for people with a small budget. Of course, it is a bit over-equipped for karaoke but it is one of the rare models that can be recommended at this price.
