HyperX Ships One Million Microphones
Another big business milestone
Fresh off their celebration of hitting 20 million headsets shipped, HyperX today announced that they’ve shipped one million USB microphones. This includes both their QuadCast and SoloCast products.
The original QuadCast, with its striking red lighting accent, first launched in 2019. Last year, an upgraded S model that I enjoyed in my review added controllable RGB lighting and a few other upgrades alongside a still-competitive price. The SoloCast is a real value winner, balancing an essential core feature set with an affordable price point.
No one could have predicted the explosive demand for home USB microphones in the last two years, due to both the sudden pandemic-driven need for work-from-home setups and increasing interest in home content creation. HyperX’s microphones are a great choice for anyone looking to record audio at home, and who also want a little bit of stylish flair to augment their desk. I like that they have full professional-grade mounting options included for those that want to upgrade beyond the included stands and buy a separate mount or boom arm.
