Razer’s latest live streaming equipment is designed for broadcasts that take place away from your desk. The Seiren Bluetooth, the company’s first Bluetooth lapel microphone, has been unveiled.
The clip-on design’s omnidirectional mic and AI-based noise suppression are intended to assist mobile streamers and vloggers who want better voice quality than their phone can provide, especially in noisy environments.
The lapel mic has a 3.5mm jack for monitoring with headphones and can be customized via the Razer Streaming App to adjust noise suppression levels, reduce latency for game streams, and adjust sidetone for monitoring.
The battery can last up to four hours with AI enabled and six hours with AI disabled, which is sufficient for a long IRL stream.
Socks included help to reduce popping and wind noise both inside and outside.
The Seiren Bluetooth costs $100 and should work with “all” phones as well as popular streaming apps such as Streamlabs, Twitch, and YouTube. Whether or not that is a good deal depends on your requirements.
Razer is most eager to contrast the Seiren with Sabinetek’s similarly equipped $140 SmartMike+, but this also assumes you require wireless connectivity. If you’re content with a USB- or Lightning-powered wired lapel mic, you can save a lot of money.
