A boom arm is a type of microphone stand that is used to position a microphone closer to the sound source. Boom arms are often used in recording studios and live performance venues. Boom arms can be used with a variety of different microphones, including the HyperX Quadcast.
The Quadcast is a USB microphone that is designed for gamers and streamers. The Quadcast comes with a built-in pop filter and a shock mount. It also includes a desk stand and a boom arm.

Heavy Duty Steel Structure: Super-strong spring with extra positioning screw, compact microphone arm stand designed for heavy duty carry. Max load: Approx. 63oz/1. 8kg. Note: The mounting hole on the Yeti Mic is sometimes just a tiny portion bigger than the 5/8″ industry standard.
You are suggested to use Thread Tape (included) to wrap around the mounting screw on your shock mount. This will effectively increase the thickness of the mounting screw, while still maintaining the actual screw thread and will enable you to connect to your Yeti.
p InnoGear microphone arm stand which strong em made of high-quality steel frame and foldable arm /em /strong is highly suitable for any stores, stages, studios, broadcasting, TV stations and so on. It also can bend back and forth at the base, easy to carry around.
I was supposed to get this arm on the 8th, and I got it a week early on the 2nd! The arm works and is very sturdy. You may hear a few pops and such from the springs, but trust me its alright. I’m honestly unsure of what looks like a crack on the mic in part, but overall, its great and very helpful!.
I realized too late that the edge of my desk was far too curved for this mic suspension. So I improvised and decided to attach it to my window sill next to me. So far its been great and has not tipped over which Im very happy and surprised about.
Ultimate Support Apex AX-48 Pro Mic BoomHave you ever wished your keyboard stand and microphone stand were the same stand? Tired of trying to figure out where to put your mic stand when playing keyboards? This extremely convenient boom adapter and boom arm is for use with the APEX AX-48 Pro keyboard stand.
Simply detach the accessory compartment lid on the top of the APEX AX-48 Pro, snap this microphone boom adapter into place, tighten the two bolts (Allen wrench included), and attach the included Ulti-Boom boom arm and you’re all set!.
This tote bag could be much better if the material were strong enough to protect the stand. It only protect the stand from scratches, not from hits or falls. The Apex stand is heavy and delicate! Its parts wont stand falls much less mishandling of a roadie.
Back to the bag: Good zippers and straps. It breaks and rips apart easily because the stand is very heavy. I have it a treat it with extreme care. Good design, poor material.
This new version is very similar to the original. The basic design has not changed much in terms of looks and functionality. The shape of the column is more confortable and rounded. For some reason I cannot tighten enough the brackets that hold the tribars.
I have a KORNOS 73 keys which is kind of heavy and no matter how hard I tighten up the bracket bolts it will tilt a little if I make too much pressure to any of the extreme ends of the keyboard making it very difficult to keep the heavy keyboards perfectly horizontal.
This kind of sucks because I like my rig to be nice and horizontal all the time. Of course it just gets a little tilted, not to the extreme of making the stand unbalanced. I’ve heard people complaining about the mic boom adapter but so far I’ve had no problems, of course I’m very careful with my equipment.
The carrying bag is a must if you want to avoid scratches and dents, very sturdy fabric and also has a pocket for storage the mic boom, though it wont fit with the mic clip so you have to unscrew the clip everytime for storage.
It very difficult to find a keyboard stand this beautiful and solid. The new triangular shape of the main aluminum column is very nice and rounded, contrary to the old triangular shape which was too sharp and prone to scratches and hits on the back of the guitar player of the band, jajajaja.
Starting with what could be better: 1) The plastic in the support arms is clearly marginal. This could be made of forged aluminum and be almost as light, and much sturdier. 2) With a microphone mount on the top, you risk damaging the threads when deploying it the way they recommend (upside down, top on the floor) 3) The proper use of the “fourth foot” in the front and the optional angle device in the back are not well explained.
Those are merely suggestions to the manufacturer. The rest is all good: 1) Although at 29 pounds, it’s heavier than my previous very heavy Z-stand, the fact that it is carried as a single unit with about one dimension far outweighs the 30% weight penalty.
2) Wow, is this thing FAST to set up! You have to adjust keyboard heights the first time you use it, but then clamp them in place. After that, it’s easy. Turn it upside down. Hold upright with one hand.
With the other hand, pull one leg out while pressing on the release, then repeat for the other two legs. Give each leg a sharp rap on the end to click them in place. Turn it right side up, pop open the top, extract the two or four arms (depending on one or two keyboards) and snap them in place.
Done. Very seriously, less than one minute. 3) FAR easier to carry than even the smallest Z-stand I’ve ever had, and even more so compared with X-stands. It sits on top of the bag for my 88-key piano across the back seat of the car, and is no longer than the piano.
4) Although you have to take a little care in positioning the three legs, once there, it’s less wobbly than any X-stand I’ve had, and comparable to all but the best Z-stands. Carrying bag is nice to have to avoid scratching it, and since it is between you and the audience, looks do count.
Mine is black, and I like that color because it does not draw attention away from the performers on the stage.
The silent, scratchless swivel joint allows for adjustment of angle, with easy tightening via a T-bar locking screw. Boom length is adjustable from 18-1/4 to 30-3/4. Features Add extra microphones without the congestion of more standsPerfect for miking saxophones, drums, acoustic guitars, etc.
Bought this to replace a much heavier mic boom which has damaged the threads on my mic stand. It is much lighter and works great. I needed it to come across my pedal board so I could comfortably reach the mic for vocals.
The old, heavy, chrome boom worked but was heavy and difficult to adjust with the compression type of adjuster it uses. This boom adjusts easily with the knob screw and has a mic cord holder that my old boom didn’t.
The tightener at the stand keeps the mic at the height I put it, doesn’t fall down thru performances. It also is easy to make compact for transport. The only reason I didn’t rate it 5 stars was that it seems to transmit some stand vibrations(from stage or inadvertent touches) thru the mic.
However, this could be partly due to my mic (Audix OM5) or the stand itself(clutch type metal).
The boom arm I received is labeled by K&M on the box as both “211/1” and “21110-500-55. ” As on the K&M site, the length is 17. 1″ – 29. 3″ or 435 – 745 mm (actually mine is about a millimeter longer) measured from the tip of the handle to the tip of the threads.
But while the K&M site lists it as having 3/8″ European-style threads for the mic clip, this one has American-style 5/8″ threads for both the mic clip and the stand attachment, and it’s even labeled “Boom arm 5/8.
” Apparently the Germans have accommodated the Americans without even telling us. So I don’t need the 5/8″ to 3/8″ adapter I also ordered, unless I mount this on one of my tripod light stands with 3/8″ threads (and with matching black, unlike my chrome mic stand).
Noticing how much torque it takes to tighten it, I can see the advantage of the t-bar on this model vs the wing nut on other K&M stands.
I’ve been playing drums for over 60 years and have gone thru a lot of equipment. My mainstay was my old Atlas boom stand, round base, 12lbs. which has lasted me over 50 years. The only problem was that the boom end extended too far out from the stand and interfered with other equipment.
Ka-pow, along comes K&M 2 piece boom attachment. What a God-sent. This thing can extend 27″ down to 7″ from the vertical pole. It is so compact and stable, don’t know how i missed this item on MF. BTW, the weighed round base of my old stand makes this setup so compact, I can set up in the tightest spaces, forget those tripods.
The boom screws right on the the stand and removed 3 lbs. of weight. Many adjustments and very professional looking. I highly recommend this attachment.
Samson MBA38 The Samson MBA38 microphone boom arm is the perfect microphone accessory for any radio, podcast, or home studio setup. Its articulating design provides a maximum horizontal/vertical arm reach of 38′′.
It gives you the flexibility to position your microphone freely. The MBA38 also features internal springs that allow for silent and effortless positioning, which is ideal during recordings or live usage.
With two mounting options included, the MBA38 can be temporarily attached to a table or desk with the C-clamp, or more permanently fixed to a surface with a flange mount. In combination with a durable steel construction, this arm offers 5/8′′ mic clip threading that can accommodate any mic weighing up to 2.
Purchased this for my son’s setup as his Yeti Compass would not fit on his desk properly as he doesn’t have a large enough overhang of the desktop to accommodate the mounting bracket for the compass.
The screw mounting bracket included with the Samson was ideal for his setup. I lubed all the hinged areas as other viewers noted with lithium grease, but the Samson unit is still really stiff. However it is working very well and he says that it’s way better than the compass in positioning and adjustment.
We did use the Blue Yeti shock mount that came with his Yeticaster and it screws into the Samson mount arm easily. Giving one star off due to the need to lubricate out of the box and the minimal cable routing compared to the Compass which was a nice feature.
Overall a good value and if you need a screwed in setup this arm works well.
This is a really good boom arm, it stays out of the way while still reaching exactly where you want it too. Cable management is very nice with the notches it has by its hinges! The reach is also quite nice, I don’t have to have it right in the way anymore! It is a little stiff, which means it can be harder to move at times, but at the same time, it doesn’t move from the place you put it! So it can go either way on if its a good thing or a bad thing, especially when you use the attachment that you screw into your desk.
Sometimes it could sound like its pulling the wood apart. Other then that this is a really good boom arm, that has impressed me in more ways then one! Definately worth the buy!.
This is the fourth mic boom arm I’ve tried, and this one does what I need, finally. I have a shelf over my desk, and want the mic to come out over my head just above the frame when I’m recording presentations.
This arm is extremely long, giving me great possibilities whether I’m sitting in front of my computer or standing up to present in front of a green screen. The arm will come out completely horizontal if I want.
Not only that, but while many boom arms pad only the top side of the clamp, this one has padding on both sides so you won’t damage the top of the bottom of the surface you are clamping to. The one thing to be aware of is that the minimum angle is a little more than 90 degrees.
So while the boom arm will extend out very far, there’s a minimum distance you will be to the place where you clamped the arm. So keep in mind that if you don’t want 48 of extension, you may want to order a smaller model like the MBA38 so as to have more flexibility to get closer to where you clamped the mic.
The K&M 21140 Mic Stand Boom Arm adjusts from 16. 7″ to 28. 5″ and comes complete with locking washer and plastic grip. The large wing nut provides smooth, silent and scratch-free adjustment. Does not include stand.
I bought the K&M 21140 Boom Arm – Black with the K&M folding amp stand and it works great with one modification. I added a boom arm extension in order to reach the center of the speaker on my amp. I used the On-Stage MSA9502 Posi-Lok 7 inch Mini Boom to extend the reach of the boom arm, which gave me more control over positioning the microphone.
It means the K&M boom arm is not fully extended so there is some flexibility in placement. The K&M boom arm works great and securely locks the SM57 microphone in place so I can mic the amp. I really like K&M products and am very happy with my purchase.
I’m just a regular schmoe with a day job, jam at the hacienda and gig occasionally. I’ve never really had a quality mic stand or boom. Usually would just grab whatever was at the local music store which was the typical chinese-ium whatever brand.
Long story short, these booms are an incredible value and really well made. From the materials to the fit and finish, top notch. Made in Germany, enough said! Spare yourself the chinese crap-ola, spend a few more bucks and get a quality boom that will last.
I use this boom with a K&M 201A/2 tripod mic stand base w/SM58 for vocals. I always position a tripod leg directly below the boom but since I don’t extend it very far past the center of balance, this stand is not going to tip over accidentally.
Works very well for me, nice and solid, easy to adjust, feels like it will last a long while and if I ever need to replace any moveable parts, they are available online–I appreciate that. It easily folds down for transport, leaving it on the mic stand base.
Easy to pack and carry. I will note that this boom looks very similar to one I bought in 2003 but is not quite as long. This is not a problem for me as the length is ample for my purposes.
Flexible. Articulating mic boom with dual suspension springs provides quiet, quick, and easy positioning of mics during podcasts, webcasts, and other broadcast and recording applications Compatible. Industry-standard 5/8′′-27 threaded stem mounts a wide range of popular studio and broadcast microphones weighing up to 3.
5 pounds as well as other 5/8′′-27 threaded accessories such as phone and tablet holders, lights, and cameras. Organized. Pre-installed 10′ low-noise XLR-to-XLR cable is routed through the tubing for convenient cable management that ensures your broadcast and recording setup looks neat and professional.
Adaptable. Included C-clamp for quick attachment to desks and tables up to 2′′ thick. EVA padding on the clamp protects furniture from scratches and scuffs. A screw-down flange mount is also included for more permanent installation.
Versatile. Each arm measures 19. 5′′ with a maximum reach of 38′′ at full extension, providing exceptional versatility as well as the ability to mount the boom arm behind computer monitors or on the edge of desks while maintaining ease of mic placement.
I purchased this boom arm because I could not bring myself to pay $100 for the PS1. I am using the Rode PodMic on it and it works very well. The PodMic is a heavy microphone and I have no issues positioning it wherever I want.
I like the included XLR cable as it looks less messy with the cable compact with/inside the arm. The tension joints are tight and work very well. I have been using it now for 2 months as a teacher having to now teach online from home and I very much love it! I’m glad I saved the money rather than going with the PS1.
Stand works great and mounts onto a desk with ease. The only issue I’ve had with it is tightening the chrome post that attaches to the mic. It doesn’t clamp down tight enough (with enough resistance) to screw the mic on tightly.
Had to use a pair of pliers to hold the chrome post when threading the mic one. Overall, good product for the price.
The On-Stage MBS5000 Broadcast Boom arm is a very flexible and useful microphone mount. It is sturdy and well made, and has a built-in XLR cable, which is perticularly convenient. I use it with my AKG studio mic in a shockmount, and it works perfectly.
The weight of the mic assembly is no problem. The arm is easily adapted to every recording situation, and comes with a table clamp as well as a fixed mount option. It serves my purpose exactly.
Samson MBA18 The Samson MBA18 Mini Boom Arm is the perfect microphone accessory for any radio, podcast or home studio setup. The telescoping design of the MBA18 Mini Boom Arm provides a maximum horizontal/vertical arm reach of 18′′, giving users convenient flexibility with their mic placement.
The mic boom arm easily attaches to tables and desks via the C-clamp mount, which offers a maximum grip of 2′′. In combination with its iron and plastic construction, the MBA18 offers 5/8′′ mic clip threading that can accommodate any mic weighing up to 2.
5kg. Perfect for home studios, podcasting, and live streaming set-ups.
I previously rigged up a mic stand for occasional desktop, next-to-keyboard use by kludging together a fairly expensive clamp and boom I’d purchased earlier from B&H for other purposes. I wish I’d come across this Samson clamp and boom combo earlier, because it is simpler, more secure, and more flexible than my earlier kludge.
It has no problem securely holding a fairly heavy large-diaphragm condenser, like an AT2020 or JZ Vintage 11. The quality is better than I expected for the price.
Sturdy Material made of high-quality steel and electrostatic powder spraying tech. The stand is more durable and anti-rust compared with normal stands. The super spring support arm bends back and forth at the base, movement is solid and smooth.
It doesn’t dip or sink. You can move your microphone to any angle you want to fix it. A Multifunction boom arm stand is universal to fit all your needs. If your microphone comes with a different adapter clip, just detach the clip and Blue Yeti, etc.
microphone adapter clips to our stand to hold your personal microphone. It has a threaded screw adapter at the end of the mount.

IšverstiShow in original languageI use this as my primary microphone; I also have the Yeti-X. This microphone is absolutely perfect for remote work and makes life on virtual meetings MUCH easier. Any stand can work based on needs but I did get a Blue mic arm because I like the look and feel best.
I set up the HyperX QuadCast so it is positioned higher than my monitor between me and the monitor in a horizontal alignment. My audience can hear me clearly and I never have to touch it. I do use the 3.
5 audio jack back out to the laptop and set Teams to use HyperX for both Microphone AND Speaker. This allows the HyperX to effectively eliminate the meeting audio so it is not echoing other participants on the calls.
I also like the red LED glow because it is clear I am not on mute and the mic is live. The slightest touch mutes/unmutes the mic. The gain is something you find easy to adjust when you first start using it and its one and done for the most part.
I never have to consciously look at my microphone or hold my head a certain way to be heard. This mic is perfect for me. I use a Yeti-x on my secondary system and while its good its not quite as good as the HyperX.
Previously I used a studio style condenser microphone was worried this USB style would be “less” quality but it was actually MORE quality. The technology is SPOT ON! The price point is a little less than its competitor and in my mind at least since I own the competitor its a real value; it is the best microphone for virtual conference type usage.
I have also created some training videos that have very clear and robust audio. I think the audiophiles would agree the videos I created are quite good considering my lack of experience and equipment LOL!.
IšverstiShow in original languageI looked at several USB type microphones for game chatting and I didn’t want to listen to distorted voices all afternoon, either. After some checking around I decided to try this model.
This model is a mini USB input verses type “C” and just RED LED, but this is inconsequential for the difference in the prices. I am more interested in the voice quality. This may be game specific, but playing WARFRAME the chat sound VERY, VERY good using the frontal directional cardioid pattern.
I do use GENELEC G Three speakers or FOCAL earbuds, which helps. Still, this is a very clear and even handed sounding MIC for the money. It is built really well, too, and easy to use immediately. All the drivers auto-load fine and work.
The tap on top to turn on/off is nice as is the volume knob at the bottom of the MIC. The stand is heavy enough to stop tip-overs and sliding around. The POP filter is built-in but the MIC is sensitive enough to not need to be close mic used.
My initial problem was one channel out! The 3. 5 mm ear-bud connection needed a FAR, FAR firmer PUSH than I expected. Once I figured that out, all is fine. That input does seem awful stiff. but better than too loose.
The wire routing through the back is good, preventing the mini USB type plug from damage. I do hate those plugs over type “C” but it is well protected from side to side impacts that can mess them up.
For this application it is fine. Plug the plenty long cord in and leave it. For a USB PC based non pro MIC, I can’t say enough about this choice for gamers, and even streamers, the voice quality is that good out of the box.
tested EQ responses are really flat, with a small step rise above 2K but is inconsequential at less than 2 dB or so. The treble rise is there on the tested unit but overall the MIC is aimed at FLAT.
IšverstiShow in original languagePlease note that when I received the HyperX Quadcast, the same week the Quadcast S released. I used the Quadcast before returning it and believe that functionally, theyy are nearly identifical.
The biggest difference is the color scheme and the RGB lighting. The Quadcast S uses a USB C connection while the original Quadcast uses a USB Mini connection. The Quadcast is a very high quality product.
HyperX (which is Kingston Technology Company’s gaming division) set a high bar with their Cloud line of gaming headsets. And while the Quadcast may not be the BEST microphone you can get your hands on in this price range, it’s loaded with features that give it value and flexibility.
While the Quadcast looks great, especially in an e-sports environment, the Quadcast S is elegant. I would recommend the RGB Quadcast S, unless you’re buying multiple microphones and building a themed studio.
The recording quality on this microphone is the best I’ve ever personally experienced, outside of some specific academic situations. If I project my voice, I can comfortably sit back in my chair and the mic will pick up my voice.
It works better when I’m in proximity to the mic. Naturally a boom arm will add some flexibility there. Communications and audio devices on computers tend to not be the most straightforward thing, but the mic works plug and play.
The tougher part is putting all your audio settings together for, say, game recording. But it is do-able and even for an amateur, the end-results are presentable. While playing some crossover Modern Warfare Warzone with friends on PS5, my voice was described as “very HD” The only knock I can give it, is you don’t really get any kind of way to monitor your levels in real time.
Although the pop filter and shock mount help, even just a simple overlay that displayed the levels would have been nice to include. I’m sure you can find applications that do this, but since HyperX offers a variety of audio products, they may consider developing their own software sweet for controller and monitoring them.
The HyperX QuadCast S is a USB condenser microphone that both sounds great and looks great. The supremely stunning RGB lighting and dynamic effects will add style and flair to any stream or setup, and is customizable via HyperX NGENUITY software.
The QuadCast S is an all-inclusive mic, featuring an anti-vibration shock mount to help quiet the rumbles of daily life and a built-in pop filter to muffle plosive sounds. Instantly know your mic status with the LED indicator, and simply tap-to-mute to avoid awkward broadcasting accidents.
With four selectable polar patterns, this mic’s prepared for nearly any recording situation and also features a gain control dial to quickly regulate input sensitivity. The included mount adapter fits 3/8” and 5/8” thread sizes, compatible with most stands.
QuadCast S is certified by Discord and TeamSpeak so you can ensure that your microphone is broadcasting loud and clear for all your followers and listeners, and you can also monitor your mic in real time using the convenient headphone jack on the back of the mic.
It’s multi-platform compatible, so you can deliver quality sound output whether you’re connecting to a PC, PS4, PS5, or Mac.
I absolutely love this microphone. I have been using a Samson Meteor Microphone up until this purchase, so, yes this is quite the upgrade – even though in the right hands even the Samson Meteor can sound great.
However, I am not a microphone expert; I am of above average microphone knowledge but not by much. Right off the bat I notice that the setup’s ability to transfer from the included stationary stand to my boom swing-arm AND have the ability to change adapters which is incredibly convenient.
Keep in mind, this is all without having to remove the shock mount that the quadcast comes with either. The microphone works well in any orientation whether in vertical or inversed position, to even sideways or offset.
The microphone is painless to setup and easy to use, having a gain knob underneath, a touch-tap mute button on top, and a mode selector on the back. The ability to choose from four pre-programmed scenario-based settings (podcast vs.
interview vs. chat etc. ) without needing a complex software is great and it is all at your finger tips with the mode selector. Speaking of software, the accompanying downloadable application for your desktop allows you to customize your sound settings and, of course, the RGB colors, patterns, ambience, and reactiveness.
I am always partial to my blues and greens and, boy, did I get them. The sound of the microphone is great even when using my typical chat services, Discord, Zoom, and Teams. I unfortunately do not have experience with recording with intent like as voice overs, but my friend does like to capture instances of us playing various videogames together.
Even without a “boosted server” the quality is crystal clear with a wide range. The addition of a built-in pop filter allows for some better hands-off control, giving the user the optional freedom of no external pop filter mounts or covers should they choose to do so.
Although, it is always recommended to consider getting one depending on your vocal habits. The material used in the construction is very reassuring and has a nice matte black. The stand itself is very solid and you would have to put in a little effort to knock this thing over.
I don’t see myself getting a new microphone anytime soon, and I hope that I never have to!.
Wanted to give a review right when I got it. Little background, I dabble in streaming and play FPS online with friends. I was tired of having the wired mic headset combo and had a yeti previously but wasn’t in love with it.
I’ve had it about a month now and there’s ALOT of good packed in this MIC and there are a few drawbacks as well. Pros: * Come across to other players online crystal clear *Software and MIC do a goodjob drowning out background noise *RGB is really on point.
The app is fairly simple almost to simple. *The on/off on tap is a very overlooked option and these guys nailed it on this one. I have mine set to color when on and no color when off. That way you never have a hot mic.
Cons: *The software needs a facelift, intergrate in the app some voice changing or something (overlays) NGENUITY is quite frankly a very simple minded app that is blah. *The gain control seems to really lack actual gain control.
Love this mic. Quality build and real quality sound, this mic comes with a fantastic base design that works to dampen/deaden sounds and vibrations from the desk it sits on (if not on a boom). I love the varied but simple controls built in – bottom twist knob to adjust the gain level, a knob on the back to select from four different condenser profiles, and (my favorite) a sensitive touchpad on top to activate/mute the mic activity that also shuts off the LED lights to indicate same.
We have had a few Yeti Blue/Yeti Nanos in the house, and I was nervous about swapping when I know those mics were a standard to measure to at the price point, but Hyper X delivers with this model. Love, love, love the USB-C power connect (Quadcast S model only) over micro-USB, and really enjoy the RGB array options over the non -S model.
I will admit I’m a dork for the RGB lights- I bought the non-S version first, literally tried it for 24 hours and talked myself into returning it for the -S model. The NGenuity software you need to download has a few features, iand makes the lighting pretty customizable.
Spent exactly 15 more bucks, but those two details alone sold me, otherwise I think the two models are identical as it relates to the rest of the build and craftsmanship. The sound is crisp, warm and clear (I leave it in cardioid mode, best for streaming and general use), and from about 12 inch distance it is clear as a bell and the user sounds pretty much adjacent to you.
Got it mostly for gaming, but also to hot-swap into my work laptop to manage umpteen zoom calls a day, and I’ve actually gotten a lot of compliments/comments on how clear I now sound. Great multi-tasker so far, would highly recommend.
Stable, tough, and affordable, the telescoping microphone stand extends up and over in order to provide a microphone close to the performer with the straight bar distanced away making it ideal for performers.
This tripod microphone boom stand features three legs that retract and fold up to a neat package allowing for ultimate portability, steel tubing construction, and one microphone clip is included with every tripod microphone stand.
The microphone XLR cable measures twenty (20) feet long and has a XLR male connector on one end and a XLR female connector on the other end. Every mic XLR cable features a 12-strand copper conductor, and all of the XLR mic cables’ copper wiring is oxygen-free 20 AWG (American Wire Gauge).
Unlike other cheaper microphone XLR cables, this 20 gauge wire signifies that every cable is considered professional grade. These hand-held cardioid vocal dynamic microphones are designed for ultimate stage performance due to their live, full-range response; punchy bass; unidirectional, cardioid design allowing for sound sensitivity from one direction only as well as their allowance for high gain before feedback (GBF).
I own a small sound company, and occasionally need to replace items such as mic stands. I had been looking at this 6 pack for a while and decided to go ahead and make the purchase. I paid $99. 95 with free shipping, and the items arrived very quickly.
admittedly I am only about two hours drive from their location! Upon arrival I inspected everything. it was all well packaged, and contained all items listed in the ad. I received 6 tall boom mic stands, 6 mic clips, and 6 – 20′ XLR cables.
The stands are surprisingly good, medium duty stands. I don’t think they would survive a world tour with a big sound company. but for what I do, they should last a long time. The boom arm tightens down securely, all telescoping functions work very well too.
The mic clips are nice and reasonably sturdy. The XLR’s are of very decent quality as well. For each set. mic stand, mic clip, and cable. I paid $16. 65. That is absolutely unbeatable in my book! I was previously buying similar boom stands for about $45 a piece.
Most mic stand packs in this price range are pretty much unusable in real world situations. but these are definitely a grade above the rest. These things will pretty much pay for themselves on their first gig.
and I foresee them lasting several years with proper care. Anytime I buy new gear. I immediately look at it’s rental value and how long it will take to begin making money. So these are definitely a win for me.
I really can’t speak highly enough about the cost to performance ratio. If you are in need of mic stands on a budget, look no further. this is what you need.
Love the microphone boom stands. Super light weight but they do the job very well. Mics typically are not heavy so you don’t always need a super heavy boom stand. No problems. Very configurable. The cables are great as well.
I believe they are 20 foot. Oftentimes you don’t need that extra 5 feet. Pro quality. Fairly thick. I trust them.
I own a recording studio. I have for 30+ years. I go through stands pretty fast since they are always being moved and messed with. I’ve got everything from Musician’s Gear to you name it and these are the best stands for the money.
Griffin, hands down! I bought 4 of their big stands that are up on rollers for about 1/4 of what the other people sold them for and they are just as good. As for these small stands, I just bought 6 of them for about $15 each.
They are better and by a long shot compared to the ones I bought last time for $50 each. I actually just needed some cheap extra stands so I wouldn’t have to tear my drums down to mic up someone else’s set.
These stands are by far better than the ones I have on my set now and I actually paid less then 1/3 for them. These came with mic cables. I have to say that the mic cables boarder line on suck! Don’t buy the mic cables.
They are actually dirt cheap but the quality is bottom barrel. As for these stands, I am going to buy about 10 more just to change out the others that I have. Well done Griffin!.
ProBoom Elite 3-Arm Extended Microphone Arm is our special 3-arm build, for the ultimate in reach and adjustability. It includes the *arm only* and does not come with mounting provision. The base of the arm has a half-inch diameter stud, to be used in conjunction with an OC White mount, or mount of your choice.
Provided with a 5/8-27 threaded mounting stud to hold virtually any microphone in a stable position. Overall reach of this model is 46. 5 and it holds up to 2. 5lbs. Available in multiple finish choices.
I bought the Deluxe Extended Two-Joint Mic Arm for use in my new voiceover booth. Space is tight, so I knew I didn’t want to have a typical stand taking up precious real estate. Using this boom-arm and the matching wall mount made short work of getting my booth up and running.
With the dual-jointed arm, and extra long segments, the microphone can be positioned from very low to very high, without having to fiddle around with mic-stand clutches or standard boom arm adjustments.
All it takes is a simple push or pull and the mic is positioned exactly where it’s needed. The springs do make a slight rumbling sound which is picked up by my microphone, even though it’s mounted on a shockmount.
But, I will add some split vinyl hose pieces over the springs to dampen the vibration. Typically done in radio stations across the nation where this is a problem. High quality, great price, and fast shipping from B.
H. PhotoVideo. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, and ordering from B. H. PhotoVideo was a pleasure.
Product is nicely made, and looks good in the studio, where we produce a globally-syndicated radio programme. Fits well with the optional wall mount. Although it appeared to be fully functional out of the box, the boom didn’t stay in position (it drooped) with the microphone and pop filter attached.
OC White’s technical support advised that it’s OK to tighten the screw/bolt at each affected joint without compromising the warranty. Having done this, the boom now holds its assigned position well and is fully usable.
Was also told that higher-capacity springs are also available if tightening the screw/bolt isn’t adequate.
The RODE PSA1+ is a professional studio arm for mounting microphones to a desk or table, providing full 360 degree rotation and unrestricted mic placement. It is the ultimate studio boom arm for podcasters, streamers and broadcasters.
The PSA1+’s innovative parallelogram spring design ensures ultra-smooth movement and precise microphone placement in any position, while its fully damped internal springs and neoprene arm cover eliminate mechanical noise for completely silent operation.
It features an integrated cable management system that fits both USB and XLR cables. The PSA1+ also comes with a universal mic thread adaptor, a desk mount clamp for mounting to surfaces up to 70mm thick, and a threaded desk insert for mounting to surfaces up to 55mm.
The PSA1+ is compatible with all RODE Microphones and shockmounts except for lavalier, mobile, wireless, headset microphones and the SM5. It is also compatible with more microphones-supporting any weight between 0.
2 lbs (94 g) to 2. 7 lbs (1. 2 kg). It has a horizontal reach of 37″ (940 mm) and a vertical reach of 34″ (860 mm).
There really isn’t a lot to say about this, it a very well made and easy to use boom arm. It works with both my condenser mics as well as my dynamic mics without a hitch (except for the SM7B which I’ll get back to).
According to other reviews I’ve seen on youtube comparing this to the regular PSA1, apparently there’s a locking mechanism on the PSA1 to hold it in place, otherwise it will just fold out on its own.
Glad that I bought this instead because you really don’t need to mess with any knobs or screwed to keep it in position; just move it around to the position you desire and it will stay in place. My only complaint is that the thick washer they use to keep the microphone screw adapter in place is a little too wide and it digs into the end of my XLR cable when using the Shure SM7B.
Obviously not going to be a problem with other mics and this is purely an unfortunate coincidence with the design of the SM7B. One other thing that seems a little weird to me is that a few people seem to dislike the branding on the sleeves, which doesn’t really bother me in the slightest (or really appear ugly to me in any way shape or form) but the again I don’t do podcasts and nor do I make content where I’m seen with the boom arm.
It also comes with a kit if you wanna drill some holes into your desk and have the mount for the boom arm integrated with your desk, which I don’t intend to use since the regular clamp works great for me, but it is pretty nice that they include it with the package in the event you’d like to do that.
Definitely worth the money if you have it and you’ve been eyeing this one!.

Advanced suspension springs on each boom arm prevent your microphone from shaking, suddenly dropping, sinking, dipping, or making noise.
Ordered two of these-one for myself and one for my mother. We love them! Super adjustable, easy to set where you want it. Love the fact that it comes with the clamp style and through hole mounting options.
Mount is strong and sturdy and doesnt wobble about, even with a relatively heavy mic installed. One tiny gripe-the cable hiding channel in the back has little plastic clips that are not great, so I used a couple Velcro straps to keep the cables in their channels.
Overall, for the price Im very impressed and would recommend.

Good USB microphone. A lot of the price probably comes from the RGB, which make of that what you will. Ive found that while you can just keep it off entirely, without it can be difficult to keep track of whether its physically muted or not.
Unless you are sensitive to sound and use mic monitoring by plugging your headphones directly into it. Its convenient that it comes with both a stand and an adapter to screw onto the shock mount to attach it to boom arm.
I find it odd that the shock mount is screwed directly onto the mic, but I dont really understand the engineering of that so I wont make any broad, sweeping criticisms about that. Its overall been very good, but Ive found that Ive had issues with it on my new desktop setup.
I have been unable to completely narrow downfigure out what exactly the problems are but my guess is that it has something to do with hardware acceleration settings and the amount of power required to power this microphone.
Because of the adjustable RGB lighting on this version, it uses USBC which from what I understand requires more power than the last model. After building my new PC, I found that for whatever reason, using certain software or doing certain things in certain software would cause most of my USB devices to experience power issues like constantly disconnecting and reconnecting until I stopped doing whatever it was that caused it.
I managed to MOSTLY stopmitigate this issue by disabling hardware acceleration in the things that were causing it the things that at least HAD the option to turn off hardware acceleration, mainly Discord and Google Chrome, and I also bought a USB 3.
0 hub that plugs into the wall that I have everything plugged into now. But to this day the mic still experiences this issue as sometimes when I use ShareX to take a screenshot or just something random its pretty much always been something with screen capturing software from what I can recall at this moment the mic will flicker and briefly disconnect before regaining connection, usually once I stop using ShareX, etc.
I am unsure if the above problem is the cause of this next issue, which is a really minor one, but ever since I started experiencing these issues, every so often the HyperX NGENUITY software on Windows that is used to change the lighting settings, etc.
, will constantly tell me I need to update the firmware of the microphone, and Ill follow the instructions, only for it to just tell me to do the same thing some random number of times. From what I can tell after checking it in the settings, the firmware version isnt actually changing so I have no idea if something extremely minor got broken inside the mic from the power delivery issues.
Its more annoying than anything the mic still works fine more or less. The final issue I have with this mic, which is most of the reason I cant give this 5 stars is that there must be something wrong with the design of this mic in regard to static electricity.
I live in a dry place in the US during the winter and sometimes I can feel the tingling of static electricity within the space between my ears and the earcups of my headphones. When I plug my headphones directly into the microphone, this static electricity is captured by the mics monitoring and I can hear it as very loud, brief buzzing.
It is at the end of the day an erratically occurring annoyance, and thanks to NVIDIA Broadcast it solves the biggest part of this problem which is that other people can hear it when I use VoIP software like Discord and so forth.
If it werent for NVIDIAs software this would be a tremendous issue that would make me even more frustrated with it. But anyways, I dont know if this is an issue with my headphones as well, as I dont have another pair to test this issue with.
I have also read on places like Reddit that people experience this static electricity issue on other HyperX products, so this might just be a common problem among their product lineup. I also dont know if this mostly just me being unlucky with my living environment and the overall compatibility of all the hardware Ive selected for my desktop.
In summary, its a good and easy to use USB microphone that sounds good enough. Its probably slightly overpriced, but hey what else would you expect from a gamertargeted product like this.
When I started streaming I knew I wanted to get a microphone that was going to give me better vocal quality than what your average headset mic could accomplish, but it took me a long time to settle on which one to buy.
I spent a few hours scouring youtube for reviews with my headset on so I could listen to sound quality differences closely, and I believe it was the Hardware Canucks who finally got me convinced to give this one a go.
At 139. 99 the current price at the time of this review the HyperX Quadcast is definitely a little more pricey than some of its competitors, but not overpriced compared to some of the big names out there, like Blue Yeti.
Aesthetically it lives up to that price point, with the shock mount and redglow behind the built in pop filter. Featurewise as well this lives up to the price point. The four selectable audio modes each work well for their purposes.
The touchsensitive mute button on top is responsive and unobtrusive, located so it wont be hit accidentally. And the gain adjustment knob on the bottom is very smooth and quality feeling. Its not perfect, though.
The shock mount that comes built on doesnt do avery good job. Because it sits on a desk top by default anything that taps against the desk with it tends to be picked up by the mic pretty easily. Fortunately it comes with an adapter that will allow me to mount this onto a microphone boom arm, so hopefully that wont be as much of an issue.
I also wish that, in this 2020 era of almost every lit up PC component and accessory having a RGB option, this microphone did too. The solid red backlight doesnt exactly fit my computers aesthetic, but thats a tiny gripe at the very worst and almost not even worth mentioning.
All in all I am pretty darn happy with my purchase, and I would be happy to recommend this to anyone who wants a nice quality microphone.
Love this mic. Quality build and real quality sound, this mic comes with a fantastic base design that works to dampendeaden sounds and vibrations from the desk it sits on if not on a boom. I love the varied but simple controls built in bottom twist knob to adjust the gain level, a knob on the back to select from four different condenser profiles, and my favorite a sensitive touchpad on top to activatemute the mic activity that also shuts off the LED lights to indicate same.
We have had a few Yeti BlueYeti Nanos in the house, and I was nervous about swapping when I know those mics were a standard to measure to at the price point, but Hyper X delivers with this model. Love, love, love the USBC power connect Quadcast S model only over microUSB, and really enjoy the RGB array options over the non S model.
I will admit Im a dork for the RGB lights I bought the nonS version first, literally tried it for 24 hours and talked myself into returning it for the S model. The NGenuity software you need to download has a few features, iand makes the lighting pretty customizable.
Spent exactly 15 more bucks, but those two details alone sold me, otherwise I think the two models are identical as it relates to the rest of the build and craftsmanship. The sound is crisp, warm and clear I leave it in cardioid mode, best for streaming and general use, and from about 12 inch distance it is clear as a bell and the user sounds pretty much adjacent to you.
Got it mostly for gaming, but also to hotswap into my work laptop to manage umpteen zoom calls a day, and Ive actually gotten a lot of complimentscomments on how clear I now sound. Great multitasker so far, would highly recommend.

I’d like to start by saying I’m giving 4 starts instead of 5 because it’s not “perfect” however I would absolutely recommend this item. Pros: the arm extends out and stays put pretty well as far as the springs and arm goes itself, it clamps down sturdy and takes only 30 seconds to install, you’ll spend more time testing different locations and finding what you like.
Cons: the mic portion doesn’t exactly stay in place, by this I mean it’s constantly loosening and rotating. If you’re not going to move your mic often, then this is no problem at all for you. I’m constant moving my mic so having to tighten it up each time is a pain in the butt, however, I understand how minor of a complaint this is.
I would highly recommend this item for the price and am happy with my purchase.
For a cheap desktop microphone stand this is great. I don’t use mine very often but I like the convenience when it’s there. The hinge directly before the mic clip doesn’t tighten very well. I have to really crank the knob and even so it barely holds my SM58 out straight.
It can stay in place with the mic straight above the hinge but doesn’t feel the tightest, but that’s ok if you’re not moving it back and forth a ton. The included mic clip is pretty cheap plastic, which means that you have to screw it on really tight before it’ll keep a mic held out sideways from rotating down in the unscrewing direction.
I purchased this to hold a very light smart phone for top down video recording. It works very well once the phone holder was attached to the end of the arm. It allows quick repositioning of the phone.
It probably would hold a 1kg microphone but the weak point is where the arm fits into the table top clamp. The whole arm is made from the thinnest steel possible and the pin is just rolled pressed steel.
Over time I can see this deforming and/or cracking. I’ve used a piece of wooden dowel to reinforce this so fingers crossed.

Suspension arm mic stand, desk mount. A great price, and not a bad piece of gear. Too lightweight for serious use, but for me, fine. Sometimes, when I’m working on vocals for new songs, I like to just vanish to my cubby hole and run Mixcraft.
Unfortunately, there is a problem, though. Don’t try to make any serious recording of voice or instrument, because the springs resonate like you-know-what. That’s probably why they say its for commentary etc!!! It does what I need it to do though, and at the price it’s well worth having.
