About the NZXT Capsule…

USB microphones are great for most users. Samson, Blue Yeti, Audio-Technica and Rode makes some of the best USB microphones before they were cool. While these still dominate the usual choices, many others such as HyperX, Razer, Elgato were able to get some piece of the USB microphone pie. You’d reckon many other companies would join like how we’d see companies rushing in for the USB headset market.

And hence we have the NZXT Capsule Cardioid USB microphone. The microphones come with functions that you would normally see in many USB microphones with their own design philosophy. So we get to explore how good is this microphone and if it’s something you’d like to buy.

Packaging

The NZXT Capsule comes in a very big box with more than satisfactory protection for the microphone inside, almost similar to Razer Seiren Pro.

The stand does feel it weighs more than a microphone. This is appreciated considering you wouldn’t want the microphone to tip over and unlike boom arms, desk stands are not clamped. The NZXT Capsule is a cardioid microphone, though it’s strange NZXT didn’t include the polar pattern of this microphone’s responsiveness.

At the time of uploading this video, the NZXT Capsule has a new firmware update but doesn’t mention what fix it provides.

Apart from a generously long USB type C cable, you get a threaded mount and a clamp. The thread is attached to the bottom of the microphone and the clamp coves the section of the mic when the desk stand is removed.
