Apogee Electronics HypeMiC USB Cardioid Condenser Microphone with Built-In Analog Compressor

Professional podcasters, singers, and voiceover artists take notice: the Apogee Electronics HypeMiC is a studio-quality microphone in a USB form-factor, one that provides a professional sound thanks to its studio-quality analog and digital components. It's also exceedingly easy to use: its cardioid polar pattern helps you sound great, even in an untreated room, and the mic itself requires no external drivers to operate; simply plug it into your Mac, Windows, or iOS device, open up your favorite recording software, and you'll be ready to record.

This microphone provides a thoroughly professional sound on both the analog and digital fronts. To do this, the HypeMiC utilizes both a built-in preamp and an analog compressor to ensure a record-ready sound for the live-streaming age. The HypeMiC can handle sample rates and resolutions up to 96 kHz / 24-bit with A/D conversion handled by Apogee, one of the foremost companies in the digital-audio world. The HypeMiC ships with a pop filter, tabletop tripod stand, mic-stand adapter, carrying case, USB cables, and a Lightning cable.

Built-In Studio-Quality Features

The mic offers an integrated microphone preamp and a built-in analog compressor with three selectable presets, each optimized for applications such as music production, live streaming, and broadcast. These features are a boon for live-streaming, so you can sound polished as you create content on the spot.

Fits Your Setup

Geared towards podcasters, singers, musicians, or anyone else seeking a stellar sound with minimal setup, the HypeMiC works with Macs, PCs, and iOS devices, giving you a consistently great sound every time.

Cardioid Polar Pattern for the Untreated Room

The microphone makes use of a directional cardioid polar pattern to minimize off-axis sound. This polar pattern naturally, yet effectively tamps down room tone and focuses the audio capture on what's directly in front of the mic. Depending on your particular room, you may still need a little room treatment or some noise-reduction software, to address issues such as your computer's hum or your air conditioner; but the chances of that are markedly lower with a cardioid polar pattern.

Built-In Zero-Latency Monitoring

Monitor your levels with headphones plugged directly into the mic's 3.5mm connection, and use the Blend function for zero-latency monitoring with your processed tracks.

Simple Controls

On the control side, it offers a prominent gain knob for easy adjustments, and a handy push-to-mute button as well. The mic also offers multicolor LEDs to indicate status, input level, compression, and Blend mode.

Professional Audio Capture

This USB mic boasts a 96 kHz / 24-bit converter, one made by one of the best hardware DSP companies in the business. You'll be able to record audio with the same specifications as a professional recording studio.

No Configuration Required

Class compliant design means all you have to do is plug the mic into your computer or iOS device—no pesky driver downloads are required. The mic is bus powered from your computer or iOS device.

Included Hardware

The HypeMiC includes with a pop filter, tabletop tripod stand, mic-stand adapter, carrying case, USB cables, and a Lightning cable, so you can get it up and running out of the box with any computer or iOS setup.

Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Closed-Back Monitor Headphones (Black)

Widely acclaimed for their sonic performance, one-ear monitoring capability, and foldable, travel-friendly design, the black Audio-Technica ATH-M50x M-Series monitor headphones offer pro-grade build quality and audio performance for professional studio-based production, location recording, DJing, podcasting, and daily listening. Outfitted with 45mm large-aperture dynamic drivers and an over-ear, closed-back design, the ATH-M50x headphones deliver clarity, deep bass, and extended bandwidth (15 Hz to 28 kHz) while isolating you from outside sounds.

Thanks to the 90° swiveling earcups, pro-quality materials, and generous cushioning on the headband and earpads, the headphones are both durable and comfortable to wear. Three detachable, single-sided cables—one coiled and two straight—are included for optimal operation in the studio or on the go. Each cable sports a gold-plated 3.5mm mini plug for use with mobile devices and computer soundcards, and a 1/4" screw-on adapter is included for easy hookup to audio interfaces, mixers, and stereo receivers. A carrying pouch is supplied with the ATH-M50x for convenient storage and transport of the headphones.

45mm Drivers

The ATH-M50x features proprietary 45mm large-aperture dynamic drivers with rare earth (neodymium) magnets and CCAW (copper-clad aluminum wire) voice coils for high-quality sound reproduction.

Tuned for Clarity and Deep, Accurate Bass

The drivers and headphone design work together to provide a sonic signature tuned flat for exceptional clarity throughout an extended frequency range along with deep, accurate bass character. With a frequency response of 15 Hz to 28 kHz, the ATH-M50x can reproduce a full spectrum of tones.

Over-Ear, Sound-Isolating Design

The ATH-M50x utilizes a circumaural design that contours around the ears for excellent sound isolation in loud environments. This over-ear, closed-back style is optimal for reducing bleed and separating you from outside sounds.

90° Swiveling Earcups and Foldable Design

Equipped with 90° swiveling earcups, the ATH-M50x ensures a great fit and allows effortless one-ear monitoring, a welcome benefit for DJs and singers. The earcups fold up to meet the headband, saving space during storage. A carrying pouch is supplied for protection and convenience while transporting the headphones.

Three Detachable Single-Sided Cables

To expand its versatility, the ATH-M50x incorporates a detachable cable design that exits from the left side. This enables convenient cable swapping and makes it easier to distinguish the different sides of the headphone. Three cables are included—a 3.9 to 9.8' coiled cable, a 9.8' straight cable, and a 3.9' straight cable—to let you choose the best cable for sessions, traveling, or listening at home.

3.5mm Plug and 1/4" Screw-On Adapter

The attached cable is terminated with a gold-plated 3.5mm TRS mini plug for easy hookup to mobile devices, MP3 players, and computer headphone jacks. A secure 1/4" screw-on adapter is included for compatibility connectivity with audio interfaces, mixers, and dedicated headphone amplifiers. Built-in strain relief on the 3.5mm mini plug reduces the likelihood of damaging the connection if the cable is pulled.

Pro-Grade Build Quality

Thanks to the pro-grade earpad and headband materials used in the ATH-M50x, the headphones provide increased durability and comfort while delivering enhanced audio and effective isolation.

What shockmount would you recommend with this?
Asked by: Matthew
There is not a shockmount specific to this microphone, but Camvate make a short shockmount for microphones up to 1.7" in diameter. This mic is 1.5" diameter. My concern is that you may not have easy access to the controls on the mic once mounted. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1369211-REG/camvate_c1195_microphone_camera_shoe_shock.html
