The following are some of the models that are currently available:

  1. Seiren Mini

The seiren line of mics is probably the most well-known and highly respected in the streaming community. The mic comes with a pretty hefty price tag at 199,99$ but you are getting a very high-quality mic with multiple polar patterns. The seiren has an amazing sound for both recording vocals and voice overs.

The seiren is plug & play which means that you can just connect it via USB to your streaming pc or laptop and you are good to go. There is no need for an audio interface or any other hardware besides your microphone itself.

FAQS about Seiren Microphones

  1. Why are some of the audio interface inputs on your list out of stock?

Seiren recently updated their products with USB C. The reasoning behind this is that it provides a more stable connection. It used to happen on some occasions that the USB cable would disconnect causing an annoying pop sound. At the moment only the X and Pro models have these new USB C cables so older models can still be bought from amazon or somewhere else.

  1. What is the difference between the seiren x and the seiren pros?

The only difference between them is the omnidirectional polar pattern on the pro. The original seiren has cardioid, the seiren x has omni and the Pro has cardioid.

  1. Can I connect the seirenes to an acoustic guitar amp?

Yes, it is very easy to do. All you need to do is connect the output of your amp to the seirenes input and then turn up the levels on each device. Make sure that you are not clipping or distorting at any point during this process. It will probably be easier if you use a mic stand.


The seiren microphones are by far the best for streaming because of their quality and ease of use. However, it is not a cheap investment and if you are short on cash there are still some decent options out there.
