The Endgame Gear XSTRM is a new USB microphone with a futuristic and unique design. However, the microphone not only looks good, but also has a lot to offer in terms of technology. Thus, the manufacturer promises audio quality at studio level, which is realized in a 20 mm real gold microphone capsule with cardioid characteristic.
Endgame Gear XSTRM: Noble microphone with chic design presented
The Endgame Gear XSTRM USB microphone aims to set itself apart from the competition in many ways. From a purely technical standpoint, the mic relies on a cardioid characteristic and provides high-end signal processing in 24-bit resolution with a maximum sampling rate of 192 kHz in a 20 mm real gold microphone capsule.
The XSTRM is said to capture and reproduce one’s own voice precisely and naturally. At the same time, unwanted background noise is to be effectively suppressed. The aim is to provide high-quality acoustics at studio level.
RGB lighting and extensive accessories
In addition, the microphone has an attractive RGB lighting, but it not only looks good, but also serves as a gain indicator at the same time. Thus, you can always keep an eye on whether the Stmmübertragung is in the green zone or possibly overdrive.
The XSTRM hangs in a flexible spider, in whose rubber cables the vibration can swing noiselessly. Unpleasantly hard consonants are also filtered out by the included pop shield.
The microphone can also be muted immediately with a simple tap on the top. Mic monitoring is also no problem thanks to the built-in 3.5 mm jack plug. Thanks to plug-and-play connectivity, it’s ready to go right out of the box and requires no additional separate audio interface or extra cables.
Visually, the microphone relies on a unique design complete with a triangular honeycomb hole pattern that is set off by the RGB lighting behind it. The microphone can play twelve different lighting modes – everything from static color to stark effects is included.
