The Razer Seiren Emote has some awesome features for streamers that are looking to spice their stream up with some emoticons and a bit of colorful interaction. The Emote's Streamer Companion App also does a fantastic job of encouraging users to customize the Emote to whatever they desire.
Unfortunately, the Razer Seiren Emote is barely an upgrade from the Seiren X when it comes to overall microphone quality. There are very minimal differences between the two, and most of the main differences appear to be cosmetic, making it extremely hard to overlook the price of the Emote.
All in all, the Razer Seiren Emote is a unique product, but due to its price of $179, it makes it very hard to recommend it to any aspiring streamer that is looking to jump into the streaming game or even someone to upgrade from the Razer Seiren X.
The Seiren X sits at a beautiful $99, the perfect price point for an entry-level streamer, and while the LED Display, gooseneck extender, and better polar pattern are great, they just don't justify forking out a further $80. I would recommend the Emote to someone who is already an established streamer that is looking to add a splash of color to their stream and doesn't mind spending the extra money, but that's unfortunately it.
So, the final verdict. Razer stepped outside of the box and did something a bit different with the Seiren Emote. It's undoubtedly a unique and very cool product. Unfortunately, Razer decided to essentially re-package the Seiren X, throw in an optional gooseneck extender, slightly increase microphone quality, and jack up the price significantly.
At the moment, the Razer Seiren Emote is a hard sell, but Razer is most likely just testing the waters with the uniqueness of this product. This makes me excited, as I can't wait to see what they can do with the Razer Seiren Emote 2.0 if there ever is one.

The Bottom Line
The Razer Seiren Emote is an incredibly unique microphone, but really, it's basically just an expensive re-packaged Razer Seiren X with a programmable LED display.
