Review

Good

  • The recording is very clear and sensitive, you may refer to the recordings on my previous medium articles.
  • Easy to control volume and gain via physical button
  • Compatible with macOS (no need to install firmware / software)

Existing problem

  • On mac, it will automatically turn on after sleep.
  • Quite large white noise during monitoring
  • Unexpected jamming sound
  • You need to put the microphone close to your mouth to achieve the best effect; or you may purchase an additional boom arm.

Noteworthy

  • It is not using latest usb type-c cable.
  • This product is released over 2 years. Not sure when will Razer release a upgrade…
