Razer Seiren: Review

6 Months on

I have been using this microphone now for the past 6 months after replacing my Snowball (had a background hum).

What can be said this is Razer the name just screams quality, and you will not be disappointed. The quick plug and play feature is amazing as expected and the quality feel is good with the option of stand mount on the desk or as I have running on a microphone arm.

Sound Quality adds that extra and for the cost difference you get what you pay for when it comes to microphones and by God, the sound is a vast improvement from the Snowball.

Easy of use, plug in and go. However I did reduce the sound input slightly due to I want my stream to hear the party chat, but as this microphone is also certified by Streamlabs no issue there either
