Are you tired of your gaming setup lacking the vibrant glow of RGB lighting? Look no further than the HyperX Quadcast S, the latest addition to HyperX’s line of gaming microphones. With its dynamic RGB lighting, this microphone adds a touch of excitement to your streaming sessions. After all, if everything else on your desk lights up in rhythmic unison, why not your microphone too?
A Familiar Look with a Colorful Twist
The Quadcast S maintains its familiar sports-talk radio broadcast mic look, but with an added charm brought by the dynamic RGB lighting. Underneath the vibrant exterior, the microphone retains the same impressive specs as its predecessor. With a frequency response of 20Hz-20kHz, 16-bit bit-rate, and three 14mm condensers, this microphone ensures crystal clear audio quality. Additionally, the Quadcast S offers four polar patterns to suit your recording needs.
Built-in Features for Seamless Streaming
One of the standout features of the Quadcast S is its array of built-in functionalities. The microphone comes equipped with a shock mount that prevents any accidental bumps from being picked up during intense gaming sessions or active Discord chats. Furthermore, the built-in pop filter adds convenience, eliminating the need for external accessories to achieve optimal audio quality. Say goodbye to struggling with positioning and maintaining the stability of your pop-shield.
Streamlined User Experience
When it comes to streaming hardware, ease of use is crucial. The Quadcast S takes this into account, ensuring that you can focus on your content without distractions. The tap-to-mute button at the top of the microphone allows for quick and easy muting, avoiding any audible clicks that may disrupt your audience. As an added bonus, the RGB lighting on the microphone turns off when you’re muted, providing a visual indicator. Adjusting your audio levels on the fly is a breeze with the soft-touch dial located on the bottom of the mic.
Impressive Audio Quality
During testing, the Quadcast S proved to deliver excellent audio performance. Whether you’re shouting gaming quotes or participating in conference calls, your voice will come through loud and clear. Even at lower gain settings, the microphone captures your voice with precision, although some plosives may sound slightly blown-out. Should you need to adjust your gain, it can be easily done with the intuitive dial on the microphone.
Straightforward Software Integration
In terms of software, the Quadcast S relies on HyperX’s proprietary Ngenuity software for RGB customization and mic level adjustments. While it may not offer the extensive range of features found in competitors like the Elgato Wave: 3 or Blue Yeti X, the simplicity and straightforwardness of Ngenuity provide a hassle-free experience. You can still easily configure your mic settings and access descriptions of each polar pattern.
Is It Worth the Upgrade?
If you already own the previous iteration of the Quadcast, the RGB lighting alone may not justify an upgrade. The microphone itself remains unchanged, with the addition of the lightshow being the primary difference. However, if you’re in the market for a new streaming microphone and want to add a colorful touch to your setup, the Quadcast S is an excellent choice. It delivers exceptional audio quality and brings a lively lava lamp vibe to your streaming experience.
