[OCN LABS] Talent Audio HBS1 All in One Broadcast Studio kit

Hey what’s up OCNers, bluedevil here. Got a quick video for all of you today. This is the HBS1 All in One Broadcast Studio kit from Talent Audio, which Parts Express.com, has sent over from me to take a look at.

With streaming getting very popular, having good audio for your stream is critical. Viewers in a matter a of a few seconds will leave if you are presenting terrible audio quality. So where does one start? How much do you want to spend on a audio setup to use for streaming? Funny thing is, you can spend THOUSANDS on great audio, however all your listeners want is clean, crisp playback. You don’t need to get a high end XLR mic with a DAC and whatnot, unless you really want to, I am not gonna stand in your way.

The Talent HBS1 All in One Home Broadcast Studio includes everything one would need to get started streaming audiowise. Included in the box is USB microphone, shock mount, scissor arm, and a pop filter. So let’s take a look.

Setting up the HBS1 is really easy. Since the USB cable is already in the scissor arm, the first step is to clamp down the scissor arm to the part of the desk you want to mount it. Then attach the shock mount by screwing it on the scissor arm. Then grab the USB mic, pinch the shock mount arms to open it wider to accept the USB mic. Once the mic is installed snugly, plug in the cable to the bottom of the USB mic, and the other to your computer. The USB mic, doesn’t require any special drivers, so it’s very universal.

So what you are hearing now is the HBS1 USB microphone. It's a cardioid microphone, which means it's pickup pattern is right in front of it rather than behind. The frequency range is 30 - 18,000 Hz with a sensitivity of -36dB. The max input spl is 135dB at 1kz with 1% T. H. D, Total Harmonic Distortion. The construction of the HBS1 is really solid being made if all metal. This tells me that it could take a beating. The scissor arm is pretty much like any other arm, so nothing special there.

So all and all, you really can’t go wrong with this kit. 4 out of 5 flames.
Ok guys, I am gonna go now, toss a like and sub if you haven’t done so already, and I will see you in the next one!

bluedevil out.

Seems interesting,

Mic's are so abundant now in usb form, i almost feels ancient using my XLR set up.

My issue is more finding software that will allow me to process audio on the fly with a return to the main system input side.
