    Can you use this for console



  2. STEEL- Train on January 16, 2021 at 1:46 am

    I’ve been looking at the quad cast but I’m glad the quality came out so well on your end. Thanks for the review 👍🏽



  3. Derick on January 16, 2021 at 1:48 am

    Does anyone know which one makes my voice sound deeper 😅



  4. tony nguyen on January 16, 2021 at 1:49 am

    I’m planning on buying the HyperX but i still need a headset does anyone know what’s good my price range is 60-150$



  5. Axel Petrovic on January 16, 2021 at 1:49 am

    what’s the song called that you played on the guitar?



  6. Dwagon on January 16, 2021 at 1:52 am

    Don’t buy blue yeti mine broke so sad



  7. Big Rafe on January 16, 2021 at 1:54 am

    The hyper X quad cast literally skyrocketed in price



  8. Graywolf2442 on January 16, 2021 at 1:54 am

    I could be wrong but it sounded like you had some of the Metro Games guitar soundtrack. in the background when you where talking about the mic’s after your guitar comparison. Its pretty faint but it starts at 6:30 and is the most noticeable at 6:40. If not was it something you played? It sounded nice.



  9. Hunter on January 16, 2021 at 1:54 am

    doesn’t matter what mic he uses the music wil always be gorgeous



  10. Warlock M on January 16, 2021 at 1:54 am

    Does the blue yeti nano not have a gain control?



  11. Boeing AH-64 Apache Longbow on January 16, 2021 at 1:56 am

    Please, do a video, dedicated specially to you playing this music.



  12. PRABODH97 on January 16, 2021 at 1:57 am

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a microphone used mostly to talk with friends. Something that isn’t too bulky or expensive and is worth the build quality.



  13. D on January 16, 2021 at 1:57 am

    sooo fifine, blue yeti or quadcast for just casual gaming/team calls?



  14. Kayla and Jim Bryant on January 16, 2021 at 1:58 am

    Not even in the market. I love my blue yeti pro, and see no reason to upgrade.



  15. Neon Cheese on January 16, 2021 at 1:58 am

    HE PLAYED "HE WAS A GOOD STALKER"!!!
    that’s awesome



  16. Dk496 on January 16, 2021 at 1:58 am

    what kind of microphone do you use



  17. Thegreatwhiteround Studio on January 16, 2021 at 1:59 am

    i cant find the difference, its like they are all the same😭😭😭😭



  18. Person None on January 16, 2021 at 2:01 am

    I liked the hyper x



  19. Mauro Sanna on January 16, 2021 at 2:02 am

    You shouldn’t have tested the Elgato mics with the pop filter on, they already have it integrated.



  20. Its_Ky on January 16, 2021 at 2:03 am

    What are your thoughts on the HyperX. Would you recommend it?



  21. Richard O on January 16, 2021 at 2:04 am

    You had me at red makes your voice faster, SOLD.

  22. Colin on January 16, 2021 at 2:06 am

    what was the song you played in the guitar test



  23. A on January 16, 2021 at 2:08 am

    Damn Dmitry.. That guitar distracted me from the whole video.. that was beautiful



  24. Jay- Rus on January 16, 2021 at 2:08 am

    What? No PodMic on the list? That is a great mic for the money



  25. Kayleh ngov on January 16, 2021 at 2:09 am

    Someone recommend me just one I just want to play phasmophobia with my cousins and stream



  26. Slamwich 1 on January 16, 2021 at 2:09 am

    He sounds like gru from despicable me when he is reading the girls a bedtime story



  27. Rippah _ on January 16, 2021 at 2:10 am

    What was the song he was playing on the guitar?👀😌



  28. Dookie Fart on January 16, 2021 at 2:12 am

    Now we need a 2021 video!



  29. Ryan Lennox-Bradley on January 16, 2021 at 2:12 am

    I maintain the shure sm7b is the best
    Unless you can afford a u87



  30. HGP on January 16, 2021 at 2:13 am

    would have loved to see the podmic here



  31. Leo Martins on January 16, 2021 at 2:15 am

    could anyone else not tell a difference?



  32. DownrangeAce on January 16, 2021 at 2:15 am

    sooo i shouldn’t get the blue snowball?



  33. Ayytay on January 16, 2021 at 2:24 am

    wave 1 has an og feel. quadcast is over really good, and finally blue ember was the best.



  34. Modern gun guy on January 16, 2021 at 2:24 am

    hyper x is the best sounding



  35. wassup eli on January 16, 2021 at 2:25 am

    I will keep my fifine



  36. bondy K on January 16, 2021 at 2:25 am

    It would have been nice to seem some ‘gaming instances’ to see how they pick up keyboard and mice sounds while ‘gaming’.



  37. fahad naif on January 16, 2021 at 2:27 am

    Blue ember. Sounds clean and smooth.



  38. entity. on January 16, 2021 at 2:27 am

    might just go for the fifine one. sounds fine to my ears and sounds good to my card 🙂



  39. M Morales on January 16, 2021 at 2:30 am

    Anything but the Razer 🤮
    Personally I would take the Audio Technica and Fifine.



  40. Raven Neo on January 16, 2021 at 2:30 am

    Hmmm >>>every microphone you was on all sound the same, there was no change kind of fishy 🙁



  41. Braeden Sorbo on January 16, 2021 at 2:32 am

    so im getting my streaming setup later this month, and I want a mic with good quality. a lot of people are saying blue yeti, that won’t pickup background noise or anything?



  42. Mortessa on January 16, 2021 at 2:33 am

    Red makes your voice faster, lol. I hear that Warhammer reference!



  43. Radek Mojžíš on January 16, 2021 at 2:33 am

    tbh most of them sounded very similarly to me, but im no audiophile… the blue ember sounded best to me in both test, for some reason, cant explain, just sounded the cleanest.



  44. Nick Billmann on January 16, 2021 at 2:34 am

    What song di you play on the guitar it sounded great.



  45. gwynniegurlly Poopoo on January 16, 2021 at 2:35 am

    soooooo a blue yeti is good?



  46. The Real Richy on January 16, 2021 at 2:37 am

    Red makes ur voice faster LOL like a red paint job on a car



  47. AMV Works on January 16, 2021 at 2:38 am

    I want the blue yeti, but the quadcast looks SICK



  48. ECHOS Z on January 16, 2021 at 2:38 am

    Blue yeti👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼💕💕



  49. Sheep on January 16, 2021 at 2:40 am

    To by way honest it was better listening to his voice as haye read the book. Felt soooo Great.



  50. Tyler on January 16, 2021 at 2:42 am

    By now, recording technology has gotten to a point where it’s really hard to tell the difference between most microphones.

    I think I might need to rewatch the video a couple times.
