HyperX has made a name for itself with its gaming headsets, so when it announced its first-ever standalone streaming microphone at CES 2019, my ears perked up. A dedicated mic is a very different beast from a gaming headset but having enjoyed so many of their other products, I was curious to see what a HyperX microphone would offer. Priced at $139 (See it on Amazon), the HyperX QuadCast is pricier than some of its more established competitors, like the Blue Yeti or Samson G Track Pro, but it also offers features the competition doesn’t. Did HyperX get it right with its first mic out of the gate and, more importantly, is it worth the extra money? I’ve spent the last week putting it through its paces to find out.
