Review of a gaming USB microphone for a computer with a built-in sound card

Hi all! A package arrived from China with an inexpensive but functional USB microphone. In the article I show, tell and test it. I have prepared two videos with reviews for you, which you can watch at the end of the article.

On the AliExpress trading platform I came across a fashionable gaming microphone for a computer and decided to order it for myself. I just wanted to buy something for my home PC, since I plan to shoot more videos for the channel. And my old one, which can hardly be called a full-fledged microphone, will go to gather dust on the shelf. I don’t even remember where I got it from, but I don’t think it’s very important. The recording quality with it was terrible.

This is the old microphone I had, it’s scary to even look at it. This is the old microphone I had, it’s scary to even look at it.

The new microphone arrived intact, although the packaging was pretty shabby. I even recorded this moment and published a separate gallery from the photon channel.

The microphone itself is strong and has a stand. I didn’t notice any low quality plastic, everything was made carefully and with high quality. No foreign odors. Connection only via USB port, cable length 1 meter. The stand has outputs for headphones (speakers) and a microphone. I connected my speaker system via the 3.5 Jack connector on the microphone.

Additionally, the stand has mute and EQ (equalizer) buttons, as well as a volume control. When you press the EQ button, a female voice speaks to us in Chinese (quite funny).

In the photo there is a volume control, a sound on/off button and an equalizer. In the photo there is a volume control, a sound on/off button and an equalizer

The microphone design has a nice RGB backlight and an HD sound card built into it.

The bar itself is strong, the positions can be changed as convenient. Height is about 30 centimeters.

That’s all that can be seen upon visual inspection. In the video you can see what it looks like.
