Sandberg Streamer USB Microphone Kit Review
Sandberg has recently released an updated version of the previously reviewed Sandberg Studio Pro Microphone. With some really nice and heavily welcomed additions.
Sandberg states: ”The complete microphone set for streaming or producing videos with optimum sound quality. Easy to connect to a PC using a USB port for immediate use. Pack includes: – Elegant metal microphone – Pop filter to reduce external noise in the microphone – Wind cover to cut out breathing and wind noise – Adjustable desktop arm. Easy to mount and adjust for best placing – Shock mount to eliminate vibration noise in the microphone”
Now ive been very open regarding my positive praise for Sandberg products in the past. Ive watched sandberg grow from strength to strength as a company and as a brand. and that will surely continue.
The Sandberg Streamer USB Microphone Kit is an all you need in one box complete set that includes, the microphone, Shock mount, pop filter, wind cover and an adjustable desktop mount arm.
Out of the box it took me less than 5 minutes to set up.
Design wise Sandberg has decided to keep this setup simplistic yet very sleek, The microphone features no buttons or controllers like the previous iteration But has retained its premium feel brushed metal body .
The included desktop mount is also extrememly convenient and durable with a metal fram. suspension arms allow convenience and easily adaptable setup to take place when needed and repositioning when not needed T.he stand can be rotated left or right and Lowered and raised whilst also having a further adjustment point closer to the shock mount. I found this extrememly easy to install Due to its larger than average clamp system. Smaller clamps have always left me scratching my head in frustration due to my thicker than average desk not allowing it. Not anymore!!!!!!!!!
The aforementioned shock mount was also a welcomed inclusion that allows further articlation and adjustment poits whilst keeping desk knocks or bumps out of recordings. This is why a shock mount is needed.
The included pop filter and wind cover’s are not a requirement, however if you want crisp and clear audio without bbbbb’s and vvvvvv’s use them.
The box also includes A generous sized 2.5m USB cable allowing plenty of movement room and flexibility and adjustment.

The Microphone like like its older sibling is Plug and play. No lengthy set ups. Plug it in. set it as default and you are good to go.
The vocals are rich and warm with very little to no background noise or pickup. I dont notice any clipping ( and i shout a bit lol) and every recording is crisp and professional. If you want to get a professional end product a standalone Mic is what you need.
I really have no complaints about this product. Sandberg has knocked it out of the park yet again. so lets weigh it up The Sandberg Streamer USB Microphone Kit will only set you back £74.99 this is nearly half the price of competitiors but wait you wont get the suspension arm, shock mount, pop filter and wind sleeves which will set you back around £50 for those things minus the mic. oh and it has a 5-year warranty!!!!!!!
My followers know that i will always say it as it is and if i think something is shit im saying that its shit. so when i say that this is an amazing peice of kit they trust me.
