HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, and brand leader in gaming and esports, announced the release of its HyperX QuadCast microphone for streaming and audio recording. First unveiled at CES 2019, HyperX QuadCast features a built-in anti-vibration shock mount and offers four polar pattern choices, gain control, a built-in pop filter, and a tap-to-mute feature that indicates the mute status by turning off the red LED lighting.

Capturing clear and consistent audio via USB, the new HyperX Quadcast electret condenser microphone actually combines three 14mm capsules, allowing users to explore stereo, omnidirectional, cardioid, and bidirectional polar patterns for greater flexibility in audio capture, and utilizes a built-in internal pop filter designed to reduce noise for clearer voice quality.

The QuadCast comes with a stand featuring a built-in anti-vibration shock mount, quick gain control and a 3.5mm headphone output for live mic monitoring without latency. The QuadCast microphone offers multi-device chat program compatibility and is certified by Discord and TeamSpeak. The included mount adapter fits both 3/8” and 5/8” thread sizes and is compatible with most stands and boom arms. The USB microphone is also designed to meet the exacting demands of PC, PlayStation 4, and Mac computers for professional or aspiring streamers.

“Over the years, HyperX has become synonymous with gaming. Our continued efforts have created a range of high-performing peripherals for gamers,” says Tyler Needles, global audio business manager, HyperX. “With the introduction of the HyperX QuadCast microphone, our team is showing its continued dedication to gamers, streamers and casters alike.”

Specifications for the HyperX QuadCast microphone also detail support for 16-bit at 48kHz sampling frequency, ≥ 90dB SNR (1kHZ, RL=∞) with ≤ 0.05% THD (1kHz/0dBFS) and an impressive sensitivity of -36dB (1V/Pa at 1kHz). 

The HyperX QuadCast microphone ships with a 3 meter USB cable, and is now available for $139.99 MSRP through HyperX’s network of retail and e-tail outlets.
