Razer Reveals New “Seiren Elite” Streaming Microphone

This morning, Razer announced the latest in their ever-expanding series of desktop gaming and streaming peripherals. With an eye firmly cast at streamers, the lifestyle company revealed the Seiren Elite, a follow-up to 2014’s Seiren and Seiren Pro. The microphone is clearly a refinement of the prior versions, reworking some of the features on-hand.

The biggest change seems to be the move to a single condenser capsule microphone for dedicated cardioid recording. The prior included three to offer multiple recording modes; however, it was an expense most streamers never took advantage of. Instead of invest in wasted capsules, Razer has instead included a built-in high-pass filter to cut of background noise, like the fans on your PC, and a vocal limiter to prevent distortion when cheering after a mighty win. The recording resolution has also been reduced from the prior 192kHz to a more standard 16-bit/48kHz format. The Seiren Elite is keeping USB connectivity, however, so you won’t need to worry about investing in a high-end audio interface to start streaming.

  • Single Dynamic Capsule – For rich and warm vocal quality
  • Inbuilt High-Pass Filter – For ultra-clean recording signals
