The HyperX Quadcast S is a pretty banger mic. Out of the box, it sounds better than the Blue Yeti and is substantially less bulky looking as well. The materials don’t seem as up to par as the Blue Yeti either however it’s still pretty solid and you aren’t going to wind up breaking it anytime soon. The mic works with Hyper X software and you are able to customize the RGB and these customizations have a lot of variety. There isn’t however any in-built software for the Hyper X like there is for the Blue Yeti when it comes to things like EQ. However, this doesn’t take away from the sound quality and I would say that due to it not relying on EQ software like the Blue Yeti it sounds much more natural and crisper. Though without any EQ software it is really hard to adjust the gain so as to not pick up stuff like keyboard typing and fan noises. Though I managed to mitigate this problem by downloading the Nvidia broadcast software and setting my input as my Razer Kraken V3 Pro mic and the output as the Hyper X microphone. Then whether it be in-game or discord or something just set the mic input as Nvidia broadcast and the output as your headset. It fixes the gain problem completely. Seriously. Nvidia broadcast is amazing. You could probably put a garden fan right beside you and it wouldn’t be picked up. The HyperX Quadcast S also comes with a mic stand and a mic arm mount adapter. I personally would recommend getting a mic arm for this as the mic stand that comes with it tends to pick up a lot of vibrations from your desk. Overall this is a really quality mic that holds its own weight and is best comparable to the Blue Yeti but with RGB.

My home office has high ceilings and hardwood floors which causes an echo with my other mic. Not wanting to wear a headset all day I opted for the HyperX mic. This is awesome. the gain adjustment allows me to eliminate the echo and background noise from outside my window. The tap to mute feature with the bright red light helps me know when my mic is hot vs unmuted. Highly recommend.I’ve had this mic for just over 4 months now but just getting around to writing the review now that I have my upgraded speakers. This mic works great with the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX computer speakers.

The Quadcast S is a fully featured USB microphone from HyperX. It could serve in almost any situation with selectable polar patterns. Most likely it will be used as a Condenser style pickup, but has 4 total styles to choose from. I experienced some initial feedback when I first tested the microphone, something of a traditional condenser hiss that a lot of USB microphones tend to have. I initially used Nvidia’s Broadcast software to remove this noise, which worked very well. However, I had bought a new USB-C to C cable, and after using that to hook the microphone to my PC, I turned off Broadcast and the hiss was gone!The HyperX NGENUITY software is easy to use for setting up the microphone. It has some simple volume controls for the main pickup, monitoring and headphone output as you can use it as a soundcard if you so desire. There are also controls for the fully featured RGB lighting. There are several styles of lighting to choose from, each with their own levels of customization. I went with a setup that has random colored “lighting” strikes coming down from the top of the mic, and comboed with a VU meter that lights up from the bottom when I talk.The microphone comes with its own stand for easy use right out of the box, but it easily attached right to my mic arm for suspension use. I also added a wind screen. Overall this microphone is excellent and a definite top choice for streamers that want something that has some vibes going on.

I got this mic because I wanted to switch from XLR, and I cant believe how great it’s been. It is essentially plug-and-play, but you can download the minimalistic Hyperx software if you want some added functionality. Pair this with a Hyperx headset that connects directly to the mic 3mm jack, and you are good to go.

Talk about quality. I usually don’t just buy on the fly based on stars alone. I usually dig down into the depths of the negative reviews and weigh the mindset of individuals against my own. This was simple, plugged it in and it was ready to go. You can download the software to play with the lights or even the mic settings. Personally I use Sonar with the SteelSeries GG app to do that. It’s more in depth for my liking. Anyways, it’s crisp it’s clear and it’s gorgeous.
It is great microphone with settings for all! Just be patient because it does take time to find the right ones. I use OBS and it took sometime to get the right sound quality but I found it and we are all good now!!

OK, so I have been a loyal Blue Yeti owner for years and years, but I liked the “look” of this mic and decided to try it based on reviews like the one you are reading here. First off, you will not have some functionality on the level above this in the HyperX on a MAC. That is exactly why I chose this model. Second, you will really have to pay attention to the GAIN and your system intake. It REALLY matters here. That being said, once you get all the settings right, this mic IS TOTALLY AWESOME. And I’ve had all kinds of SOTA pop-filters and such for the Yeti, but when you find the sweet spot for this mic it’s UNREAL. I would give 6 stars if I could.

The microphone was giving me issues for a few days until I found out my Motherboard had a recent bios update which after that it works perfect. Would recommend for anyone who is looking for a mic, easy to work with, great passthrough to headphones so you can tell how loud you are being and great directional sound pickup
The microphone sound is clear. It’s easy to use just plug up the USB cord to the microphone and then your computer. There is no external software needed but you can download the HyperX app and change the color patterns, brightness and a few other microphone settings.

I have been hesitant on buying a desk mic. I mainly use a headset. One I have is a wired Astro but it was def not worth the money in my book. I had looked over several desk mics and was down to two but after watching a review comparing the two mics i was interested in, this one won.I did stream at one time and those who would watch me never complained about the sounds quality though I know in my heart I wanted better. This def sounds way better than my Astro and i paid a lot for that overly hyped plastic. Now i just need to rebuy a headset I use to have that had eargasmic sound for far less than most headsets and I will be set.I have two Pteranodons in my house (kids) or at least thats what my friends call them. They fight with each other or scream from jump scare games on the other end of the house. If I didnt have Nvidia rtx voice running, the would def come through even with settings in discord to try and help eliminate background noise. My friends love it though cause my kids yelling and fighting with each other they think is the funniest thing.Well today one of my kids was in the same area as my desk and he was yelling loudly tattle telling on his brother, and I thought for sure he was coming through on this mic. I asked my friend if she heard anything or any of the kids and she said no. I was shocked. He was super super loud. Again I have used Nvidia rtx voice with 3 past headsets and my kids somehow would come through at times. If they were close it would be minimum but if they are in their room on the very far end of the house they would faintly come through. With this mic he was right on the the backside of my desk, though its set to Cardioid. But i do have a wall further back behind me and I can hear his voice bouncing off that wall when he is yelling in the room I am in, but he still did not come through. My friend heard nothing. If he was directly next to me then maybe he would come through. I wont know till I get a chance to test it out later. But so far the mic is worth it. Boyfriend liked it so much while he was helping to test listen for me in discord that he bought one for himself the next day.
