What customers say about "Size & Weight"
HyperX QuadCast USB Condenser Gaming Microphone
  • I love everything about this from the sound quality to the size and look of it, Best Buy for the year.
  • This is a medium-sized USB condenser microphone which comes with both a desk stand and standard microphone mount.
  • The size is larger than most, a full size "pro-look" and that's fine because it had a cool look.
  • I literally have three desks covered in books, papers, materials, etc. So, for me, this is the exact right size!
  • It might a little bug on the size but it's not as heavy as a blue yeti.
Blue Yeti USB Mic for Recording & Streaming on PC and Mac
  • The size is good and the handle and comfort to play is good.
  • Very nice-looking, substantial in weight. Versatile with configurations.
  • Easy to setup and create clear and crisp audio! Fairly large for the size.
  • Although fairly large in size, the quality of the product is evident. Large selection of settings.
  • It is very sturdy and has some weight to it. It looks and feels professional!

What customers say about "Features"
HyperX QuadCast USB Condenser Gaming Microphone
  • Physical controls are a god send with the Quadcast. Having a physical control for gain levels on the fly is a must if you're looking to Twitch stream.
  • The built in pop filter and while it does work rather well I would still recommend an additional pop filter to help really clean up audio.
  • Speaking of control the touch sensor and lighting makes it easy to quickly mute myself during a stream.
  • The 4 different recording options with a quick switch, this makes the Quadcast super versatile
  • I sounded crisp and clear. The volume adjustment is a great feature as well.
Blue Yeti USB Mic for Recording & Streaming on PC and Mac
  • Simple to use and records great sound. I use it to record podcasts and the multiple recording patterns are a godsend. I love this mic.
  • There are manual switches for both gain and recording patterns - stereo, omni, cardioid, and bi-directional.
  • It’s a very sensitive microphone, it picks up a lot of low and mid frequencies.
  • It also features a 3.5mm standard audio jack port which allows you to plug in earphones to get real time monitoring. I really like it.
  • Amount of background noise and static detracts from what should be professional quality.
