From a HyperX press release:
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 connection, 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 recordings with vibrant sound.
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.
