sE Electronics NEOM USB: Don’t Wait to Create

Here’s a microphone that makes sure recording your best ideas is easy and fun.

Let’s be honest, who isn’t a content creator these days. You’re a musician; you’re a content creator, you’re a podcaster; content creator, a YouTuber; you’re a content creator (but you probably already knew that).

The market for microphones for content creators is starting to get a little out of control, and it’s become increasingly difficult to find a mic option that’s right for you. 

sE Electronics USB Mic

Say hello to your new best friend; the sE NEOM USB microphone. This mic looks to address all of your needs as a content creator and make your life as easy as possible whilst doing so.

The NEOM USB is a cardioid condenser microphone that can record up to 192 kHz at 24 bits through its USB C connection. It features three little front facing pots that control mic gain (which goes up 1 louder than 10), mic level and playback level. The sE logo also doubles as a button to mute the signal.

Being a condenser mic, if you’re a podcaster tight for cash, or just wanting to get into it but not sure you wanna go all in on the spend you could even get away with having just 1 NEOM between 2 presenters and you’ll still get that profesh sound for your budget.

Having both a playback level and mic level control is super handy if you’re, say, a gaming streamer who needs to comfortably mix the volume of the computer’s audio output with the volume of your voiceover in your headphones.

I definitely recommend getting your hands on a pop filter if you’re looking into the NEOM USB for vocals, the plosives can get a bit aggressive. Fortunately sE has made this mic compatible with their isolation pack for just this reason.

As a muso, I’ll definitely be keeping this on hand to lay down any quick ideas I might have on the road, not having to travel with an audio interface and a bunch of XLR cables is a blessing.

I would have loved to see a little carry case included to keep the mic safe during my travels, fortunately I have plenty of little mic bags and given the small form factor of the NEOM USB, I’ll definitely find a bag to fit.
