    I don't know if this is the correct forum for me to post this, but I didn't see a section dedicated to Microphones, so I decided to go with audio.

    Anyway, I've been wanting to upgrade my microphone for the longest time. I've been using the Razer Kraken pro's mic, but it just doesn't really cut it for me. When I turn my volume up, I can hear static in my headphones themselves that I don't hear when I unplug the mic, and not to mention the mic itself sounds like it's inside my mouth half the time, what with all the pops I hear on playback (and it's not like I can put a pop filter on it). So I looked into new microphones, and while the Blue Yeti seemed like the most popular choice, I decided that when I do buy a microphone, I would get a Razer Seiren simply because I love Razer.

    But that lead me to a few more questions: Will the other accessories I plan to buy for my microphone (a microphone stand, pop filter, and shock mount) fit, work or even be necessary? For example the microphone stand. At first I thought that one size fit all, but I was looking around and saw that one person was complaining about how his Razer Seiren didn't even fit his mic stand. I don't want to get into that same situation, so I decided to come here where people may already know.

    So can anyone recommend me a stand (that I can twist around and move freely when I'm not using it) that fits the Razer Seiren? Also are pop filters and shock mounts even worth it? Do they make a difference?

    That's the spirit!

    Razer has their own accessories (mic stand, pop filter and a shock mount), which are made to be used with the Seiren.

    Pop filter definitely make a difference, as for the shock mounts, that depends on the conditions.
    You can get all 3 (stand, pop filter, and shock mount) in a Bundle, which will save you ~50€.

    I just looked that up, thanks! But I didn't see the mic stand, just the pop filter and shock mount.

    Razer doesn't sell a mic stand, you have to purchase that 3rd party. That being said, unless you're looking for REALLY nice recording quality you really don't even need one. I have mine sitting a couple feet away from me on my desk and everyone can hear me just fine.

    I know, and I don't really have a problem with just having it on my desk, but I would still like a mic stand, particularly one that twists freely around such as the one in this video at 2:11 minutes in. So even though you don't use one, do you have any suggestions for one?

    If you're thinking of expanding later on to include an amp and DAC, then the Seiren Pro would be the better choice. Of course it will also cost more than the Seiren. A good review of the Seiren Pro:
