Review: HyperX Quadcast USB Microphone

HyperX is known primarily as a headset specialist and is already established in the audio sector. At this year’s CES in Las Vegas, a microphone was presented for the first time. HyperX remains true to the audio segment, but nevertheless breaks new ground. This is reason enough for us to critically examine the new HyperX Quadcast. How it works in practice, we’ll tell you in the following review.

Scope of Delivery

The microphone is delivered in a white-red package, which in our opinion is attractively designed and arouses interest in the content. Once unpacked, the microphone is presented in a robust polystyrene package.

Next to the microphone you will find a warranty card, a user manual and a welcome sheet. In addition, the package contains a three meter USB cable and an aid for attaching the microphone to a tripod or microphone arm. The USB cable is a USB A-to-Mini USB cable. Due to the sheathing, the cable appears very robust, which promises longevity.

All in all, HyperX delivers very useful additional instruments, which we rate positively.
