Sennheiser Profile USB Microphone Streaming Set Review: The Ultimate Convenience for Content Creation
There’s a lot to be said about convenience when it comes to equipping a home studio or content creation suite. Today’s media environment moves fast – and to that end, your setup needs to be responsive, easily understood, ergonomic, and ultra convenient. At a moment’s notice, Rockstar Games could surprise-release one of the biggest video game trailers of the decade. Your deadlines are typically tight, so you need loving content creation companions that can be deployed at a moment’s notice, whether that’s to hop on a live stream, record a podcast, or voice a TikTok explainer. To that end, the newly-released Sennheiser Profile USB Microphone Streaming Set is an incredibly useful friend.
The Streaming Set package comes with a standalone Sennheiser Profile USB Microphone, as well as a sturdy mount that easily attaches to desks of all sizes, with an adjustable clamp. The stand has multiple points of articulation (six major joints) and slots to hold the microphone cable, to ensure a clean and easy setup. Notably, the base point of the arm has free-flowing articulation, so that it functions as a swing for you to easily guide your microphone back and forth.

When setting up the microphone, you don’t need to know anything about audio recording, which is a major boon for anyone looking for their first microphone, or just something simple to keep audio recordings sounding crisp and clean. The main button on the microphone is a mute with a clear colour warning for convenience, and the knobs control a simple array of settings – headphone volume, audio mix, and gain control by volume (aka voice volume). The gain control is probably the most useful of these knobs, as it allows you to adjust the volume of your voice, with a yellow warning light popping on if you’re too loud (although you really have to shout to annoy this microphone).
Before getting my hands on the Sennheiser Profile USB for review, I was recording TikToks using an iPhone 14 Pro Max, as a matter of convenience. Audio often came out sounding grainy and tinny, and my voice lacked bass in a way that made it sound slightly higher and (to my ears) more annoying. I knew this to be the case, but aimed to sacrifice audio quality for time convenience. The Sennheiser Profile USB Microphone solved this issue entirely. Audio recordings with this mic are completely crisp and free of background noise, with excellent isolation of user voice.
When recording your content, the most appealing feature of any setup is convenience and affordability. The Sennheiser Profile USB Microphone Streaming Set marries these features with a strong dedication to quality, making the entire package feel very worthwhile. It’s cheap to claim a device can change your life, but I can certainly see this microphone making my life much easier, with its handy recording setup now allowing me to make TikToks faster, and far more conveniently. In a world of rapid-fire content, having that advantage is key.The Sennheiser Profile USB Microphone Streaming Set is out now at all good technology equipment stores. 12/05/2023 01:51 am GMT A Sennheiser Profile USB Microphone was provided for the purposes of this review.
