In the world of live streaming, we have seen all sorts of weird and wacky products emerge but we’ve never seen anything quite like this and we never expected it from the likes of Razer! The new Seiren Emote is quite possibly the most random and hilarious microphone ever to be made. Featuring a full 8-bit LED display on the back of the microphone, designed to work in conjunction with Razer’s Emote Engine software and Twitch or Stream Labs OBS, this microphone can be interacted with by your viewers to display over 100 animated, static and custom emotes. Is the microphone any good or is this just another gimmick? We find out!

KitGuru says: Overall the Razer Emote is tonnes of fun and has huge customisation options. We think the built-in shock mount paired with the brilliant audio quality gives this microphone the potential to be excellent with a few minor tweaks. It is significantly more expensive than the Seiren X, but the LED display is certainly one of a kind.
