First Public Showing of HyperX ProCast at TwitchCon San Diego
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – Oct. 5, 2022 – HyperX, the gaming peripherals team at HP Inc. and brand leader in gaming and esports, today announced the release of the HyperX ProCast Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone. The HyperX ProCast is a professional-grade condenser microphone featuring an XLR connection1, a cardioid polar pattern input and a gold-sputtered large diaphragm condenser capsule, delivering high-quality audio performance. Designed for streamers, influencers and content creators looking for professional quality in a microphone with XLR connectivity, the HyperX ProCast offers high-quality audio recordings2 with vibrant sound.
“HyperX continues to elevate its range of high-quality and high-performing peripherals to meet the needs of today’s gamers, influencers, content creators, and more,” said Ana Hidalgo, streaming business manager, HyperX. “As our first XLR microphone, the HyperX ProCast microphone is perfect for recording professionals, content creators and streamers. With an XLR connection and a high-quality gold-sputtered large condenser, HyperX engineers focused on delivering excellent audio performance and versatility for use in home or professional studios.”
The ProCast microphone captures detailed recordings with the gold-sputtered large diaphragm condenser capsule and utilizes the popular cardioid polar pattern to focus on the sound source. A switchable -10dB PAD allows the microphone to handle loud audio sources and a 80Hz high-pass filter switch helps to reduce unwanted low-end frequencies.
Designed to capture high-quality sound and noise-free content, the ProCast comes with a built-in anti-vibration shock mount reducing vibration noises and a detachable HyperX Shield metal pop filter to help reduce rumbles and pops for clearer audio capture. The mount adapter fits both 3/8-inch and 5/8-inch thread sizes and is compatible with most stands and boom arms.
HyperX will be exhibiting at TwitchCon San Diego from Oct. 7-9 at booth #1913, showcasing the latest HyperX peripherals, including the new professional-grade ProCast microphone.
The HyperX ProCast large diaphragm condenser mic will be available in the U.S. through Amazon, Best Buy and the online HyperX Shop for $249.99 MSRP starting in October.
