Sound quality

The lowest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording bass.
Audio interface sampling rate/frequency defines the number of samples per unit of time taken from a continuous signal to make a discrete signal. Sampling rate determines the quality of a digital recording.
3.sound pressure level

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (HyperX QuadCast S)

Microphones with a higher max SPL (sound pressure level) can record at greater volumes without the audio distorting.
The highest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording treble.
Audio interface bit depth/rate describes the number of bits of information recorded for each sample. Bits represent the resolution. The more bits, the more accurate sound is reproduced.
6.Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (HyperX QuadCast S)

A higher signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) means that the microphone can record a cleaner audio signal with less background noise, particularly as the volume level is raised.

Features

Microphones that have multiple polar pattern options can be used for different scenarios. The more patterns that a microphone supports, the more versatile it is.
2.has cardioid pattern
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
A cardioid polar pattern captures audio in front of the microphone and is particularly useful for situations such as recording a podcast or game streaming.
3.has a mute function
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
The device has an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
4.has omni pattern
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
An omni polar pattern captures audio from every direction. It is particularly useful when the audio source is moving around, or if you wish to capture the audio from a wide sound source such as a group of people.
5.Is compatible with Android
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
It is compatible with a range of Android devices such as smartphones and tablets.
6.Is compatible with iOS
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
It is compatible with a range of iOS devices such as iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch.
7.Is compatible with Windows
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
It is compatible with PCs and laptops running the Windows operating system.
8.Is compatible with Mac OS X
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
It is compatible with Mac OS X devices such as MacBooks and iMacs.
9.has hyper-cardioid pattern
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
A hyper-cardioid or super-cardioid pattern is a narrower version of the cardioid pattern. It captures audio in front of the microphone at a narrow angle and is particularly useful when you wish to record a single audio source in a loud environment.

Headphone output

1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.lowest frequency

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB)

20Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.highest frequency

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB)

20000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
4.Signal-to-Noise ratio (DAC)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB)

90dB

When a digital signal is converted to an analog one (for example when playing audio through speakers or headphones), a certain amount of noise is carried in the signal. A higher SNR means that there is less noise and the audio quality is better.
5.impedance

16 Ohms

32 Ohms

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
6.Has a connector for a 6.35 mm audio jack
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
Has 6.35 mm standard jack connector to plug in your headphones.

Design

1.shock mount included
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
A shock mount protects the microphone from physical noises such as a foot tapping on the floor or passing traffic.
2.pop filter included
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
A pop filter (also known as a pop shield) is a filter that is placed in front of the microphone to prevent popping noises when recording vocals.
3.control panel placed on a device
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
4.Has LED sound level indicator
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
An LED sound level indicator makes it easier to monitor and control the audio level.
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.has RGB lighting
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
RGB lighting allows you to choose between millions of colors and customize the look of your PC components.
7.has an integrated touchpad
Audio-Technica ATR2500x-USB
HyperX QuadCast S
With a touchpad, users can control the device by moving their finger on a touch-sensitive surface.
8.volume

387.5cm³

3289.5cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
9.weight

366g

710g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
