The Razer Seiren Emote microphone is a piece of tech that asks more questions than it answers. It’s a condenser style mic which is pretty popular for streams, podcasts, and tonnes of other recordings folks do on the net. It’s also an LED display and that’s where things get a little questionable.
It’s not that I can’t see the purpose, it’s a neat little feature and when you’re streaming anything to set you apart and build interactivity is a bonus. It’s just that it doesn’t quite work how you might expect.
The good news is the microphone does, so what you have is a good microphone with a weird quirk rather than just a gimmick on a stick.
