If you’re a gamer who wants to make sure that they miss the best Cyber Monday USB microphone deals, we’re here to help. Whether you’re playing online with friends, or making your way in the world of Twitch streaming, the right microphone will be essential and we’re going to cherry pick the best deals from across the internet throughout the whole Black Friday season.
Streaming is a pretty expensive hobby regardless of how seriously you take it. Viewers are fickle creatures and how long they stay around usually depends on how slick your streams look and how good you sound. As such, getting the right equipment for the job can put a pretty big dent in your wallet – especially when it comes to a good microphone. For this reason, Black Friday makes sense as the most logical time for anybody to grab a new USB microphone.
If you’re more of a hobbyist than a full-time content creator looking to ditch your gaming headset for a standalone microphone, then we’d recommend picking up a USB mic. They’re generally cheaper than some of the XLR microphones used by some of the biggest streamers and are pretty much exclusively plug and play.
They can be placed directly in front of you while streaming or they can be attached to a boom, but wherever they sit, we can guarantee they’ll sound better than most gaming headsets – adding more value to your stream. Whatever you’re in the market for, we’ll be finding a broad selection of Black Friday USB microphone deals.
Razer Seiren X USB streaming microphone
The Razer Seiren X USB streaming microphone is currently available at $49.99 USD (that’s half price, don’t you know) from Amazon US and £71 (28% off) from Amazon UK.
Razer is a master of gaming hardware and you know that when it tries its hand at a USB microphone, you’re going to get something special. The Razer Seiren X USB streaming microphone has a built-in noise reduction system that helps to eliminate distracting noises further way from the microphone, helping to give streams a more professional feel.
It also includes feautres for zero latency monitoring which allows for real-time in-streaming monitoring that won’t cause confusing echoes for your viewers. All in all, it’s a good model at a good price – what more do you need to know?
Shure MV7 USB microphone
The Shure MV7 – often the choice of streamers and podcasters – is on sale for $224 and £200 on Amazon right now.
In comparison to the other mics on this list, which are all great options, the MV7 is the cream of the crop. While the price might not reflect some of the other discounts available this Black Friday, Shure products rarely go on sale – and for good reason.
HyperX QuadCast USB gaming microphone
The HyperX QuadCast USB gaming microphone is currently available with some tasty discounts on Amazon. In the US, you can pick this up with almost a third off, while in the UK the QuadCast is currently available at half price.
HyperX is great microphone brand (and you’ll find another HyperX QuadCast in our best microphone for streaming guide) and this nifty microphone can easily be plugged into a computer via a USB cable. Handily, it can sit at just the right level on your desk because it comes with a nifty stand, and this doubles as a shock mount to suppress the sound of unintentional rumbles and bumps.
It also has a conveniently placed mic sensitivity dial that you can adjust at any point during recording. Add to that four selectable polar patterns which you can switch between in order to get the right focus for all recordings, and you’ve got an ideal set-up or anybody looking to get into streaming.
Blue Yeti microphones
As always with Black Friday, there are deals for Blue Yeti mics left, right, and centre. In the US, you can nab the Blue Yeti Nano Premium for $69 and in the UK, it’s £84 – these deals are both on Amazon.
If you’re not a fan of Amazon, Best Buy in the US also has $40 savings on Blue Yetis in a variety of colours. The white one, for example, is now $89.99.
EPOS B20 USB microphone
If you’re looking for a sleek microphone that’ll fit well with your deco, then grab the EPOS B20 for $99.99 (down from $149.99) from BestBuy today. In the UK, there is currently only 12% off this mic from Amazon.
EPOS is a relative newcomer to the world of streaming-grade plug and play microphones and, despite that, it holds its own against the likes of Razer, Shure, and Logitech. With different pickup patterns, intuitive LEDs, and on-mic controls, this is a great deal.
These are great little mics that’ll transform your streams (or your work video calls) in seconds. And at this price, that’s nothing to be sniffed at.
