The Razer Seiren Elite is a new professional-grade microphone for live streamers
The folks at Razer continue to expand its efforts to support hardcore gamers, as well as those who play and stream games on the internet for a living. Today, the company announced the Razer Seiren Elite microphone, which it says was built specifically for live streamers and YouTube video creators.
Razer says it wanted to make a professional grade USB microphone that didn’t require users to access any more hardware or software—such as mixers and converters—in order to get high-quality sound for their streaming and gaming videos. The Razer Seiren Elite includes a single dynamic capsule and cardioid capture pattern so users can get an accurate audio recording. It also has a high-pass filter that’s been designed to remove unwanted low-frequency vibrations, including sound that might come from places like fans or air conditioners.
Also, the microphone has its own digital/analog vocal limiter which is supposed to automatically adjust audio gains so there’s little to no distortion and popping while recording. The Razer Seiren Elite supports a 16-bit audio rate and a maximum sample rate of 48 kHz resolution.
The Razer Seiren Elite is now available to purchase from the Razerzone.com online store for $199.99. It joins previously released Razer products made for live streamers and YouTube creators, including the Razer Kiyo video camera and the Razer Ripsaw gaming video capture device.
