Razer Releasing Seirēn Pro Digital Microphone Aimed at YouTubers and Streamers

One of the leading manufactuerers in PC perpherials (and sleek gaming laptops at that), Razer has set their eyes on YouTubers and streamers. While they already have their regular Seirēn microphone available, they’re releasing an even better model aimed towards audiophiles and those who are looking for the best recordings possible.

“With the success of YouTube, Twitch and the likes, there is a greater demand for high-fidelity recording equipment than ever before,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “Our second condenser microphone, the Razer Seirēn Pro, delivers what video game streamers are looking for and provides great value to YouTubers, musicians and anyone looking to capture sound clearly.”

The major difference between the pro and regular model is that it includes a XLR output (with a 5-pin cable included) that gives the option to record via analog. It also includes a High-Pass Filter toggle that allows users to remove rumbles and hums that may be picked up on standard mics. The Razer Seirēn Pro is available for pre-order right now for $249.99, and will ship on May 8.
