Razer had a pretty busy 2017 and this year looks like it’s also off to a busy start for the gaming hardware company. Razer’s latest product release is a professional-grade microphone for video game streamers — the Razer Seiren Elite. The USB microphone features a built-in filter and limiter which not only provides “a richer, warmer vocal tone” but also reduces the need for additional equipment.
“Most professional-grade microphones require additional recording equipment, like mixers and converters, that you need to get your sound onto your PC,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “The Razer Seiren Elite solves that problem, letting broadcasters focus on their content and letting the Seiren Elite handle their audio.”
The built-in filter removes fan noises and other similar low-frequency vibrations while the limiter automatically adjusts audio gains to keep recordings and streams balanced.
Key features of the Seiren Elite professional-grade microphone include:
- Single Dynamic Capsule – For rich and warm vocal quality
- Inbuilt High-Pass Filter – For ultra-clean recording signals
- Digital/Analog Vocal Limiter – For zero distortion
- 16-bit/48kHz Resolution – To optimize your stream
- Zero Latency Monitoring – For zero audio lag
- Flat Frequency Response Monitoring – For accurately reproduced sound
