Great audio quality for a USB Mic

The Quadcast is very easy to set up and has excellent audio quality for the price and type of mic this is. It has an inbuilt pop filter, which makes it very accessible for people who don't know so much about what a mic requires to sound good. The Pattern switch can see some use, but not a totally required feature. The Gain control is great and easy to use, same with the mute button situated on top of the mic

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Mute and Gain control is great
  • Mute/Unmute LED looks great
  • Good design

Cons

  • Not the most comfortable material to the touch

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. (HyperX QuadCast)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (NZXT Capsule)

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. (HyperX QuadCast)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (NZXT Capsule)

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
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
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
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
The device has an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
4.has omni pattern
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
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
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
It is compatible with a range of Android devices such as smartphones and tablets.
6.Is compatible with iOS
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
It is compatible with a range of iOS devices such as iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch.
7.Is compatible with Windows
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
It is compatible with PCs and laptops running the Windows operating system.
8.Is compatible with Mac OS X
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
It is compatible with Mac OS X devices such as MacBooks and iMacs.
9.has hyper-cardioid pattern
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
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
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.lowest frequency

20Hz

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (NZXT Capsule)

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

20000Hz

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (NZXT Capsule)

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)

90dB

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (NZXT Capsule)

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

32 Ohms

16 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
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
Has 6.35 mm standard jack connector to plug in your headphones.

Design

1.shock mount included
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
A shock mount protects the microphone from physical noises such as a foot tapping on the floor or passing traffic.
2.pop filter included
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
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
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
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
HyperX QuadCast
NZXT Capsule
An LED sound level indicator makes it easier to monitor and control the audio level.
5.cable length

3m

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (NZXT Capsule)

3289.5cm³

663cm³

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

710g

883g

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.
