Product Description

Featuring a dynamic design for excellent voice capture and with added USB functionality, this is an amazing choice for content creators and streamers to allow you to achieve professional results.

This dynamic microphone also touts its quality with a highly directional, hypercardioid pickup pattern that helps eliminate common ambient noise, like the hum of a computer fan so your followers can focus on your personality and performance.

The mics design allows for easy mounting onto a mic stand, or via a boom arm so you can best position it so your followers can enjoy the show!

Key Features

  • Zero latency monitoring- A headphone jack with volume control allows you to monitor audio directly from the microphone, while the mix control allows you to blend your microphone signal with computer audio.
  • Simple to silence- Need to mute the mic quickly? A simple touch of the capacitive mute button immediately silences the microphone. The mic’s LED ring will turn red to show that you’ve muted the mic!
  • Quiet, professional performance- The mic features a specially designed, integrated shock mount that tames any noise, shock and vibration that might be transmitted through a mic stand, boom or mount. The low-cut filter eliminates low frequency sound for additional reduction surrounding environmental noise.

Not sure about this mic. But partly as I am a novice at using them for voice recording. It picks up bass frequencies really well but, perhaps partly because of being dynamic rather than condenser, the treble frequencies don't shine through.
