More On: QuadCast S

HyperX has a nice little mic for those who stream in the QuadCast. Well today, they're announcing another mic in their line for gamers.

The QuadCast S is a USB mic that builds off their previous mic and adds RGB lighting effects to the upper half of the microphone. With four polar patters, easy tap-to-mute functionality, built-in pop filter, and the ability to plug in a headset to monitor your voice, the QuadCast S is set to deliver quality audio to your audience as well as bring some color to your stream.

A USB-C connector on the mic is a nice upgrade over the original's mini-USB connector while the physical design looks pretty much the same to the original QuadCast.

It's available now for $159.99 from HyperX's store.
