Walt Now fires up his new HyperX Quadcast USB external mic and records a video with it – to review the mic itself. (It’s on Amazon. #ad)
Looking for a good, external USB mic for your home/office? Found a cool one!
I realized I needed an external USB mic to up my YouTube game (and Zoom for that matter,) so I clicked around, studies reviews, and landed on… the HyperX Quadcast.
I know it looks like a bong… or something else… but it’s a mic, all right, and a pretty good one. It lights up!
Also, I know buying a USB microphone to make YouTube videos, then making the very next video about the mic itself… is pretty meta.
My verdict is, you get good sound at a good price point, and the red LED instant on-and-off gives it visual pizazz. Recommended for YouTube, Zoom, and gaming.
Not for looking like a bong.
