Razer Seiren X USB Mic Review / Test

Today I review the new USB Mic from Razer, the Seiren X. This mic is not designed for music, it’s designed for gaming, and for that it sounds perfectly fine. However, there are better budget options out there, they just won’t look as cool.

What Mic stand do you have

Crazy Me says:

Hi! At the end of the video, you said that there are microphones out there that are for a lower price and sound just as good if not better than the razer seiren X , could you please give me some examples? As I want to buy a microphone right now… the purpose will be for gaming and good enough for youtube/streaming basically the sound quality of this mic except cheaper.
Thank you so much for considering my request!

I just bought the siren x.
Things wrong in the video.
1 it’s full metal no plastic.
2 the standard stand has a shock absorber that does more than a boom arm.

how does yours sound so much better than mine? :'(

ShanOnYT says:

What microphone arm did you used?

David Edsall says:

Very thorough review. Thanks for really going into this.

Tom says:

I’m not sure, but I think you used it wrong. The Input volume should be at 100%, and than, to control the volume, only use the gain-knob on the microphone. Otherwise you could have some issues. I might be wrong though.
