HyperX SoloCast – a quality microphone for everyone


For chatting, playing, streaming and podcasts. The universal microphone for practically everything, which does not cost thousands of crowns and at the same time sounds good enough, was until recently a mere dream. However, HyperX has come up with the SoloCast model, which combines a number of great features and a low price.

microphone HyperX SoloCast is one of the small desktop microphones with a USB interface. Compared to the larger QuadCast, SoloCast offers much more compact dimensions, which you will definitely appreciate when traveling, even if you want to keep the microphone on your desk. Compared to QuadCast, this is not a significantly poorer sibling.

SoloCast specializes, as the name suggests, in recording audio from a single source. This will cover the vast majority of uses. When playing, streaming or just chatting over the Internet, you often speak into the microphone alone or with another person by your side. Here SoloCast excels as it records sound from a directed direction. It can naturally suppress ambient noise so as not to disturb the listener.

Inside the SoloCast there is a condenser microphone with a sensitivity of -6 dB capable of capturing frequencies from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. The microphone is protected from the environment by a very soft but breathable grille that prevents dust and dirt from settling directly on the microphone.

The elegant black design is minimalist and maximally functional. On the front of the microphone we find a diode indicating that the device is switched on. The back hides a modern USB-C. HyperX supplies a detachable cable with USB-C to USB-A connector to the microphone. You can place the entire microphone in a very practical adjustable stand. However, it is also possible to use completely standard arms, on which the microphone is screwed due to the presence of a thread.

Speaking of practical functions, we must also mention the upper touch button to turn off the recording. Because it responds to touch, pressing it does not make any sound that the other party would hear. At the same time, the microphone will signal the status to you by flashing the front LED.

Plug and play functionality also makes it easy to use. You plug in the microphone into USB and it just works. You don’t have to install anything, set up complicated ones and so on. Ideal for less skilled users.

In addition, HyperX has provided certification from Discord and TeamSpeak. With these programs, the microphone understands. There is no problem when recording with OBS, XSplit, Streamlabs OBS or Zencaster. If you use a microphone at a Zoom meeting, you will probably hear best of all.

So what does the microphone actually sound like? You can find out by listening Hrej podcast or PCTuningwhere newsrooms use these microphones.

It is clear from listening that even such a small and cheap microphone can be used to create Internet content from streaming through videos to podcasts. You don’t have to use the microphone with just your computer. He also understands Mac or Playstations 4 and 5.

The combination of small size, great sound and construction quality and ease of use make the microphone a clear choice. To this we must add a low price tag. HyperX SoloCast is usually sold for around CZK 1,200, but you can also get it for less than a thousand in promotions. It sounds better than any headset and many more expensive and larger desktop microphones.
