(Pocket-lint) - HyperX's microphone line-up is already pretty popular with content creators and streamers. Especially the RGB-tastic HyperX Quadcast S.
Now the company has revealed its first XLR condenser microphone and is promising professional-grade capture quality for high-quality audio performance. Ideal for those looking to improve the quality of their lives streams, videos, podcasts and more.
The HyperX ProCast microphone boasts a gold-sputtered large (1-inch) diaphragm condenser capsule and a cardioid polar pattern to help focus on your voice and create audio with a vibrant sound.
The ProCast also has a familiar design which clearly resembles that of its most popular previous mics. That includes the built-in anti-vibration shock mount with that classic red strap design. It also has a detachable HyperX Shield metal pop filter to reduce rumbles and pops for clearer audio capture.
- Frequency response 20Hz~20kHz
- Sensitivity 38± 3dBV (1V/Pa at1kHz)
- Maximum input sound level 140dBSPL (THD 1%@1kHz)
- Noise (RMS) -118dBV (A-weighting)
