    Hi, i bought a razer seiren last week, and it works really fine, the upgrade from my last microphone was great, but im having a lot of background noise, and its very annoying, i dont really know what to do, i tried turning the gain to 1, but it is still getting even the clicks really loud. I've seen youtubers streaming with this microphone (meaning that they're not using any post-production program like Audacity) and it sounds really clear, i dont even hear their keyboard and mouse. Anything will help :)

    Just from an audio theory perspective, I have a couple of questions:
    How close to your keyboard is your Razer Seiren?
    How close is your mouth to the mic, especially compared to the keyboard?
    Is your Seiren set to Cardioid (the one that looks like an upside-down heart . . . cardio=heart, hence the name)? With the cardioid pickup pattern, the mic is active in one direction and is supposed to actively reject noise from behind the mic.

    Hi, it is in between me, and my keyboard, it is set in cardioid, and it is like 10 cm to my mouth and 10 cm to the keyboard too (razer deathstalker)

    So this question may seem stupid, but what way does the razer logo face. It is meant to face away from you, you may just have your mic pointing towards your keyboard.

    Nope, the logo is facing away. Should i consider buying the stand/arm for Seiren? Does it help with this issue? or its just some bad configuration of my computer? i really wonder how people that just buyed it, have a really clear sound. I can attach a picture of my setup if it helps

    The picture would help, and perhaps a video or audio file of what the siren hears. It doesnt have to be you, just play a youtube video into it.

    i am thinking about getting one but it is rather expensive, since i stream and play music i think it would kill 2 birds with one stone :D, but off topic i sometimes get some backround white noise when i record with my razer kraken pros v1 , how does one get rid of this white noise?
