The QuadCast S is one of the best live streaming microphones out in the market to day due its customizability and ease of use. It has all that you need on a microphone with a shock absorption mount and a built-in pop filter makes this easy to set up on the desktop table. The only thing that this microphone is bad is the pricing, it is slightly on the expensive side compared to other mics on this range and features. But overall this is still a good buy if you are looking for an RGB microphone that is user friendly.
