The link says the video has been removed but my guess is a ground loop picking up noise from the power supply in your computer. Use balanced cables and don't bypass the ground when plugging gear into the wall or don't use an outlet without a ground.

Back away from the mic. I'm hearing mostly plosives and sibilance issues, also occasionally some distortion. Backing up will help, sometimes only a few inches. You'll get a more natural sound that way.
Of course, backing up can introduce other problems, especially if your room is not acoustically treated.
well I guess I don't even need a pop filter anymore. Increasing the distance between me and the mic helped a lot!
I really thought if I get that far from my mic the recording will sound ****ty like it did before when I still used my USB mic. But to me it sounds even better and as if my room was treated, no!? I guess I'd get an even better sound with room treatment, but I'm astonished how good it already sounds, and this with an only 73$ mic.
That short clip definitely sounds better. I didn't notice any glaring distortion in the clip, but if you are still experiencing it then either back off some more, turn down the mic preamp gain, or both.
That is what lossy compression does to save so much data space: it gets rid of what it thinks you will not notice, including bass and highs and what it deems to be background noises. If Handbrake will allow you to have a less compressed track try that, eg. a 256kbps MP3 file will have fewer data deleted than a 128kbps MP3 file.
