Razer adds high-end Seiren Elite microphone to its Broadcaster family

Razer late last year added the Seiren X microphone to its Broadcaster line of products targeting streamers. On Tuesday, the gaming peripheral maker introduced yet another Seiren-branded microphone, this time for those who desire a higher-end offering.

The Razer Seiren Elite microphone is described as a professional-grade, dynamic USB microphone designed to bring high-quality audio to live streamers and YouTube broadcasters. Based on a single capsule design and coupled with a built-in high-pass filter and limiter, the Seiren Elite is said to provide the richer, warmer vocal tone that’s typically associated with high-end broadcast equipment.

Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO, notes that most professional-grade mics require additional recording equipment like mixers and converters to get sound onto your PC. The Seiren Elite solves that problem, he says, which lets broadcasters focus on their content.

Indeed, the Seiren Elite affords simple plug-and-play operation – no external mixers, amplifiers or signal converters necessary. Full product features and specifications are as follows:
