FOX: Professional USB Studio Microphone

Crisp Quality

If you scream in a session and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? How about we put philosophical thought experiments aside and just get a quality mic, such as the beyerdynamic FOX, on sale for $99 (regularly $179). This professional USB studio microphone captures 24-bit/96 kHz, studio-quality audio and is mobile-friendly, making it an ideal pick for YouTube, Twitch, recording podcasts, or just yelling at friends. The large-diaphragm capacitor capsule captures every note in stunning clarity, with accurate sound conversion and low inherent noise—plus a gain knob and mute button let you tailor response to any instrument or situation. Featuring a USB-C plug (USB-A to USB-C cable included), you can use this mic anywhere—from your over-specced battle station to on-the-go smartdevice recording.

TYGR 300 R: Open-Back Gaming Headphones

Professional and Spatial Sound

Immerse yourself in the adventure of gameplay with these beyerdynamic circumaural open-back headphones, on sale for $169 (regularly $199). The spatial sound produced by the TYGR 300 R headphones captures every move with fast in-game sound localization, so you never fall a step behind. The 5 – 35,000 Hz frequency response means you’ll enjoy every sweep and swell of a game’s soundtrack (or any other music, for that matter). And if you’re guilty of sessions that last for hours on end, the TYGR 300 R is equipped with velour earpads and a comfortable acoustic fleece over the driver, which emphasizes the sonic environment while minimizing treble peaks that can cause fatigue.
