Music - Singing
HypeMiC’s unique analog compression enhances vocals like no other microphone. The three compression settings available in HypeMiC give you a truly balanced and 'mixed' recording, reducing the need for extensive processing and mixing. Capturing your perfect take has never been easier.
HypeMiC brings a new level of smoothness and warmth to acoustic instrument recording. Varying compression levels allow you to capture the fullest tone of your instrument without compromise. Built for high SPL levels, HypeMiC provides greater clarity and detail when recording loud acoustic instruments from drums to horns to choirs.
Podcasts, Voiceovers, Interviews, YouTube performances, Live streaming & Conference calls
Ideal for livestreaming, podcasts and broadcasts, HypeMiC balances audio dynamics for greater clarity resulting in better ‘broadcast ready’ recordings. HypeMiC is compatible with any Mac/PC and iOS app that allows you to select an audio device so you’re never without a pro studio when you are on the go.
Speciality Recording, HypeMiC analog output
HypeMiC is an awesome way to introduce new sounds into your recordings and mixes. You can send audio out of the HypeMiC stereo output into a mixer, audio interface and stand-alone recorder to capture the unique and bold sound of HypeMiC’s compression settings.
Sing Without Delay
The Blend feature lets you listen and record with zero latency
Like its cousins, Jam+ and MiC+, HypeMiC also features an ⅛” stereo headphone output and Blend function for zero latency monitoring. The Blend button allows you to easily adjust how much direct signal input (sound going into the microphone) you hear mixed with software playback (sound coming out of your computer), enabling you to dial in the perfect mix.
With a carry case, custom pop filter and premium desktop tripod, HypeMiC comes with everything you need to make amazing recordings on the go.

It is one of the few quality condenser mics that can plug directly into the iPad and work without external power. I tried a larger Marshall USB mic and it required a powered camera adapter -- that can be a pain, if you're trying to record where an outlet is not easily available.
The mic itself has some nifty features, like the (almost) zero-latency headphone jack with adjustable mix b/w headphones and playback, a fairly easy-to-use gain setting dial, and it's much-bragged-about built-in compression. That feature is much more important for broadcast/podcast use. For voice-over, many clients want to be able to go back to raw signal and hardware compression means the "original" signal has been messed with on input. But, for a recent promo-style VO, the lowest compression setting worked well for me, and it's easy enough to turn off.
The mic quality itself is really pretty darned good. It's good enough for professional work. I haven't compared it to my highest-end mics, but it did the job.
One thing it's missing -- that Apogee doesn't provide with any of its mics -- is a shock mount. They provide a tripod with a ball mount (very adjustable and solid), but you can easily get low-end rumble transmitted from mic handling or vibration of a table or floor. I did experiment, and the Rycote InVision USM-L (or USM) can be used, so there is a viable option. But that's another ~$70. Overall (and because I already have the Rycote), I've found it to be a valuable mic to have and I'm glad I bought it. It's not cheap, but it's high-quality & sometimes you get what you pay for.
If you're on the road a lot and need a good mic for voiceovers and/or podcasts, this is the mic to get.
I bought this mic to record multiple tracks in Acapella, the problem is that after each track the settings default back to neutral so you have to readjust and find the old settings . Big time waster, not to mention losing your focus on the project.
I'm satisfied with this purchase, but I would invest in a RODE mic if the company would release a USB version with an audio gain control knob that I could control.
