HyperX DuoCast USB Microphone Features
The HyperX DuoCast is an elegantly designed USB microphone with a low-profile shock mount to meet the needs of gamers, podcasters, streamers and content creators. While it works flawlessly with PS5, PS4, Macs, and PCs, just know that it does not work with the Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S. A tasteful RGB light ring with 2 customizable zones gives it a vibrant look and cool style.
High Quality Audio
This microphone promises high quality and crystal-clear voice capturing thanks to its hi-res 24-bit bit-depth with up to 96kHz sampling rate.
Internal Pop Filter
Those pesky popping sounds that show up on recordings especially when enunciating the p and b sounds is taken care of with an internal pop filter. This saves you much time when editing your audio files. Plus, you don’t have to buy an additional pop filter for your mic. The shock mount also helps to reduce the pickup of unwanted rumble and vibrations.
The DuoCast features two selectable polar patterns – cardioid and omnidirectional to record audio to suit different purposes. For instance, the cardioid pattern is ideal for podcasting, streaming games, making YouTube videos, engaging in Skype calls, and recording vocals and instruments. That’s because the cardioid mode captures sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone. On the other hand, the omnidirectional mode is ideal for such things as conference calls and meetings. That’s because the omnidirectional mode picks up sound from all around the microphone.
Onboard audio controls
This microphone features an easily-accessible gain control adjustment and tap-to-mute functionality to easily control and manage the broadcast sound. The LED lighting on the mic conveniently displays the broadcast status. DuoCast also offers an RGB light ring that you can customize via the HyperX NGENUITY software.
The HyperX DuoCast is a sleek minimalist looking microphone that weighs about 243.2g. It is currently available in Target stores for $99.99.
If you prefer the HyperX QuadCast S USB Microphone or the HyperX SoloCast USB Microphone you can pick them up at Amazon as well.
