HyperX Releases SoloCast USB Microphone

Plug N Play USB Microphone Joins HyperX’s Microphone Family Alongside QuadCast and QuadCast S with RGB Lighting

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – Nov. 2, 2020 – HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology, Inc., today announced the release of the HyperX SoloCast™ USB microphone for streamers and content creators.  SoloCast offers Plug N Play audio recording capability and a tap-to-mute feature that indicates the mute status when the red LED is flashing. Using a cardioid recording pattern, it provides a clear sound ideal for streamers, casters, students, and working from home professionals.

The SoloCast microphone offers an easy Plug N Play setup. It utilizes a cardioid polar pattern that is more sensitive to sound sources directly in front of the microphone, making it great for in-game voice chat, streaming voice audio, and audio recordings for content creation.

“We are excited to expand our USB microphone line with the addition of HyperX SoloCast,” said Nate Almond, audio business manager, HyperX. “We are always looking for new ways to deliver an amazing user experience and expanding our USB microphone lineup with our new SoloCast brings a different option to streamers and content creators.”

SoloCast’s small size and rotatable stand with adjustable tilt positions gives it the ability to fit in small or tight places, such as under a monitor. The included mount adapter fits both 3/8-inch and 5/8-inch thread sizes and is compatible with most stands and boom arms.1  

SoloCast joins the HyperX microphone lineup with the recently launched QuadCast™ S microphone with RGB lighting. Both microphones are compatible with PC, PS4 and Mac® and work on major streaming platforms like Streamlabs OBS, OBS Studio and XSplit and are certified by Discord and TeamSpeak™.
