HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., Announces the release of the HyperX QuadCastTM microphone, designed for streaming and audio recording. The new HyperX QuadCast has a built-in anti-vibration mount, as well as four polarity patterns, gain control, a built-in pop filter and a simple mute function: when activated, it turns off the red LED.
HyperX Quadcast uses USB technology to record clean, smooth sound. The microphone also features four polarity patterns: stereo, omnidirectional, cardioid, and bi-directional. This choice provides the flexibility to record audio. At the same time the built-in internal pop filter is designed to reduce noise and improve voice recording quality.
QuadCast microphone comes with a stand with built-in anti-vibration damper, gain control and a 3.5mm headphone output for monitoring its performance. QuadCast is compatible with multi-device chat programs and certified by Discord and TeamSpeak. The included mounting adapter fits both 3/8″ and 5/8″ threads, and can be used with most stands and mounts. The QuadCast is fully compliant to the rigorous demands of PC, PlayStation 4 and Mac, and will satisfy professional and novice streamers alike.
“Over the years, the HyperX brand has become synonymous with gaming. We’ve worked hard to develop a range of high-performance peripherals for gamers,” notes Tyler Needles, manager of HyperX’s global audio business. – With the release of the HyperX QuadCast microphone, our team demonstrates our commitment to supporting gamers, streamers and video bloggers.”.
