Equipped with a 25 mm condenser capsule and boasting a 24-bit / 192 kHz sampling rate, the Carnyx delivers natural and rich sound reproduction that captures every nuance of the user’s voice. Its cardioid polar pattern minimizes background noise pickup, making it ideal for solo content creators looking to elevate their audio quality.

Say goodbye to unwanted low-frequency background noise with the Carnyx’s studio-grade high-pass filter, which eliminates rumble or hum below 80 Hz. Additionally, the built-in pop filter prevents plosives for crystal-clear vocals, while the all-metal shock mount ensures minimal external vibrations for uninterrupted recordings even in the midst of intense gaming sessions.

The Carnyx features a one-touch mute button for seamless control during live recordings or streams. Its multi-functional control knob allows users to adjust microphone and multimedia volume, toggle the high-pass filter, and enable real-time monitoring via a 3.5 mm headset jack, all at their fingertips.

Elevate your setup with ASUS Aura Sync RGB lighting, offering six preset lighting effects within the Armoury Crate app. Synchronize lighting effects with other Aura Sync-enabled products for a cohesive aesthetic. Plus, Armoury Crate provides additional customization options, allowing users to activate the high-pass filter, customize EQ profiles, tweak RGB lighting, and more.

The Carnyx comes bundled with a USB cable for instant connectivity to laptops or PCs, ensuring hassle-free setup for aspiring streamers and content creators. Its built-in mount adapter fits standard 3/8-inch threads, offering compatibility with most mic stands or boom arms for added flexibility.

Pokdepinion: Seems very promising, but it’s unfortunate that condenser mics will not work well given my room setup. It will inevitably have too much noise, rendering it nigh unusable. I hope they launch a new dynamic mic option sooner rather than later.
