The QuadCast S boasts a heap of important features for users, whether they’re streaming or setting up a conference call. This USB mic has a built-in anti-vibration shock mount, which should limit the amount of feedback from people tapping or bumping desks, as well as the bounce from hitting keys on a keyboard. It also features a tap-to-mute sensor with an LED indicator to let you know when you’re muted. This is certainly invaluable in a live-mic setting where discretion is needed.

In terms of its polar patterns, the QuadCast S has four to choose from: stereo, omnidirectional, cardioid, and bidirectional. This should give users plenty of options to tailor their recording experience to exactly what is needed. There is also a built-in pop-filter to help with those “p” and “s” sounds.

There is also a 3.5mm jack for live mic monitoring, which is certainly helpful for those looking to keep their volume in-check when streaming or recording. Those with stands and boom arms will be pleased to hear that an adapter is included that fits both 3/8-inch and 5/8-inch thread sizes. This should mean no need to purchase a new mount.

HyperX’s QuadCast S will retail for $159.99 USD through the HyperX online store. The QuadCast S product page is also where you can also read the exact audio specifications including frequency response, sensitivity, and more.
