Razer today announced the Razer Seirēn, a plug-and-play digital microphone designed for studio-grade recording and streaming. The Razer Seirēn features a versatile multi-pattern USB digital connection capable of four different recording pattern configurations with three custom-tuned 14 mm condenser capsules. This makes the Razer Seirēn digital microphone ideal for the needs of professional musicians, streamers and YouTubers who demand superior clarity. With plug-and-play simplicity this microphone is simple to use at the studio or at home.

The Razer Seirēn also allows content creators to quickly switch between 4 different polar recording patterns (Cardioid, Stereo, Bidirectional and Omnidirectional) by rotating the main control knob allowing for greater versatility of use depending on recording applications. The microphone’s built-in headphone amplifier allows for zero latency, real time accurate monitoring of recordings to ensure users sound exactly as they intend to.

Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO stated:

“Platforms like YouTube and Twitch are a big part of how people experience their media today, and they shape how we interact with each other. Tuned for a professional-style setup and able to be assembled and transported quickly and easily, the Razer Seirēn is a microphone designed specifically for streamers and YouTubers.”
