Are vocal booths worth it?

Though they're still rare, there are portable vocal booths that surround all four sides of a singer and can only be entered via a doorway. That being said, they might not be worth it. These models are very expensive and are often just plain excessive for most home studio purposes.

Also question is, do I really need a vocal booth?

You don't technically need a vocal booth. Good alternative is something like a voxguard. Anything that could isolate the mic would be good if you're in a very untreated/reverb-y room. If you have a slightly decent room without lots of reflections, then you don't need anything other than placement!

One may also ask, how much does a vocal booth cost? Most professional vocals are recorded inside a vocal booth. It's difficult to get that “pro” sound without one. However, most vocal booths can cost a fortune. They usually range from $800 to $5,000 – a nightmare for a home studio artist.

Consequently, are vocal shields worth it?

Originally Answered: Is getting a vocal shield worth the price of buying it? Not worth it. First of all, your mic is already most probably a cardioid mic. Second, there will still be sound reflections from where your mic actually picks up sound.

How much does it cost to be in a studio?

Booking time in a good professional studio can cost anywhere from $50 to $500 dollars an hour. Keep in mind you usually get what you pay for when it comes to recording studios. Most studios do include an audio engineer as part of their hourly rate.
