Throughout my time using the Razer Seiren X, I really started to appreciate the small compactness of the mic. Due to its height of only 18.5cm, I'm able to clearly see my keyboard and all of the keys when typing. While if I had a taller mic such as a Blue Snowball in the same location, my vision would be impeded.
I have also accidentally knocked the mic several times throughout testing, and due to its weighted shock mount, it holds itself in place and has a hard time tipping over. The mount also drowns out a lot of the sound that can be produced when placing objects of weight on your desk. It also does a great job of absorbing the murmur of your PC if you have that located on your desk.
There really isn't that much negative about the Razer Seiren X, but if I was to cherry-pick some aspects of it that could be improved, I'd say this: The lack of a switch that determines the settings on the microphone for different use cases. The tipping angle seems quite pointless, as the angle of which its position barely reduces or increases pick-up. Finally, the fact that it picks up keyboard strokes, and it was almost being impossible to remove them with setting tweaks.
All in all, Razer has done an absolutely fantastic job with the Razer Seiren X. It's great for streamers who need a microphone that is easily portable and isn't too expensive.
The quality is a bit better than the $99.99 you will be paying, and the easy and fast setup means you can jump right into streaming or playing games with your friends within minutes. While the Razer Seiren X isn't the best microphone on the market, it's a great purchase for an entry-level streamer or gamer who wants to upgrade their microphone from a standard headset mic.
To wrap it this all up, the Razer Seiren X is a compact, easy to use gaming microphone that sits solidly in the microphone market at a competitive price. It's audio, build, and overall quality is a direct compliment to its sitting price, which makes it a microphone that gamers should certainly consider if they aren't looking to fork out large amounts of money for a top of the line model.
The Bottom Line
Don't let the size of the Razer Seiren X fool you. Its small compact design combined with its great audio quality and reasonable price should turn some gamer's heads.
