Today you can get the HyperX QuadCast S USB condenser microphone on sale for $119.99 at Amazon. This matches the mic's lowest price ever and is something we've only seen in the new year. The mic normally sells for around $160 and hasn't varied much from that price in the past despite having been around since 2020. It's still going for that MSRP price at other retailers like Best Buy, so today is your chance to save in a big way that doesn't occur very often.
With the QuadCast S you get all the features you need on a condenser mic to improve your audio, including a lot of personalization and customization. Choose from multiple polar patterns, adjust your gain, and even protect your voice from vibration or pops with the included filters and mounts.
Ease of use is the name of the game with a mic like this. It has so much already built into it and included that make your content creation life so much easier. For example, the Quadcast S comes with a built-in anti-vibration shock mount. This is specifically designed to isolate the mic, which helps suppress any sort of rumbles and shakes that might be picked up as disjointed sound due to the mic's sensitivity. You'll also get a pop filter, which helps keep those agonizing Ps from getting picked up like mini explosions. Some of the other features include an adapter that can fit tripods and other stands or boom arms and a headphone jack so you can monitor your voice with zero latency and control every detail.
Some of the versatility of the mic, and thus the versatility you have to get your audio right every time you hit record, includes four selectable polar patterns. You can choose between stereo, omnidirectional, cardioid, and bidirectional to optimize your broadcast. From experience, most content creators will choose and stick with cardioid simply because this is designed to suppress sound coming from directly behind your mic including things like the clickity clack of a keyboard. However, you may need to play around to find what works for you. You can also adjust the gain easily with the dial on the bottom of the mic.
The QuadCast S is also compatible with a wide variety of platforms since it easily connects and becomes usable via USB. Use it on your PC or Mac and with several programs like OBS, Streamlabs OBS, Discord, and more.
