    For noise cancelation I will always suggest rtx voice if you don't have a rtx card (I know confusing, stay with me here) or Nvidia Broadcast if you do have rtx.
    A while ago, when rtx voice came out, it was found you could use rtx voice without the need of a rtx card (I used it with my 1050ti for a while). So nvidia later announced that they would remove that limitation officially (anecdotally it seems to me like rtx voice has been limited since this change, so if you have the option use broadcast). So they just added the functionality to Nvidia Broadcast which has not just noise cancelation but also virtual backgrounds and a few other things. Broadcast still requires an rtx card, but if you have one I fully recommend using Broadcast.

    Still rocking my GSP 600 headset from when they were still being branded as Sennheiser. Love the headset. Sturdy, comfy, the drivers in the headset are good and the mic isn’t bad either. It obviously doesn’t compare to a standalone mic, but I like the convenience of having the mic attached to the headset.

    I can't deny that the microphone is well built, it does seem to be pretty decent at worst. However, companies should really try to not grab some of the market that the Yeti made, which simplified microphones to common folk to a stupid degree. Most people, especially streamers, won't need multiple polar patterns that sound okay. It would be best if they focused on a single pattern and made it great.
    Sound-wise, it reminds me of the AKG Lyra, and that's not great, since that's $50 cheaper and has the same schtick. I think that at $200 you could just get a 204HD+a dynamic, like the sE V7 or SM57..
    It isn't a bad product, just not outstanding value and I'd still probably take the Yeti X over it if I had to buy a USB mic.

    Truly terrible value imo. It's double the price of a Yeti for a nearly identical sound and some really sub-par software features, which offer no functionality that isn't also available natively in OBS or any DAW. The main draw of the Yeti is how cheap it is while still being a substantial upgrade over a headset mic, but this is firmly in audio interface territory. An entry level $80-100 interface paired with an AT2020 or SM58 truly blows this mic out of the water for the same price if not even less

    One way you guys can improve your audio tech reviews, is to do a techquickie on Polar Patterns, Frequency Response, and basic audio terminology. It will help your viewers, as well as yourselves, separate some of the chaff from these audio reviews.
    It's not entirely accurate to describe a Condensor vs Dynamic Mic as the difference in noise rejection, especially since both are commonly found with Cardioid Pickup patterns (Microphone pickup primarily "On-axis", with peak rejection between 120-150, and 210-240 degrees "Off-axis"). The difference you are looking for is diaphragm sensitivity. Since a Dynamic mic is "passive", it relies on mV from the Gain Amplifier, and your voice to excite the pickup, and transduce, whereas a Condenser microphone has a ~48V Line Voltage that the diaphragm is charged to, meaning that it requires less Gain to produce the same amount of sensitivity.
    I love your channel, and would love to see the audio-focused content improve.
    P.S. I don't think you should recommend this product, since you can't find a response chart or pattern chart on their website, indicating they don't want you to compare this to a Blue Yeti or other comparable USB mic.

    One advantage of the Omnidirectional pickup pattern is that it does not suffer from the proximity effect, so you do not get the bass buildup that occurs when speaking really close to it. Very useful in some settings!

    I've NEVER clicked the dislike button on any LMG video, until today. Considering this is a 'technical' evaluation of a product, there was very little actual microphone theory presented. Here are the main offenders...
    - Figure Eight pattern is NOT stereo, it is a pattern that picks up two 'lobes' on either side of the mic, which would be useful in an interview situation with the mic in the centre.
    - an interesting difference between Cardioid and Omni is that the unaltered frequency response of each is such that Omni is much flatter - in most cases almost completely flat, which means the sound is more true, and Cardioid minorly accentuates sibilance making it sound better on a voice.
    - your voice was bassy becasue of proximity affect, you were too close for the mic to give it's 'true' frequency response, also if you were to mount the mic in such a way it was above your nose pointed down to your mouth you would not produce pops while not needing a filter, much in the same way you have a shotgun mic above your head pointed down at your mouth for the shoot.
    - freqeuncies below 200hz are pretty much unnecessary for voice, our ears don't use that information to help with communication, if you had engaged the highpass filter you would have sounded more natural, especially since you were too close (see above).
    Your tech advice videos about computing are life-savingly well informed, please treat audio the same way! Audio is 50% of the experience when watching any video.
