American award-winning audio brand, JLab Audio, is expanding its portfolio of high-quality and affordable audio accessories into the rapidly growing USB-microphone space. The new JLab Talk range are a multi-tiered line of USB microphones ideal for everything from gaming, streaming and online calls, to podcast and professional-level recording. True to its brand identity, JLab created their Talk Series USB Microphones ahead of the curve in combining high-quality, feature-packed products at price points below the established leaders in the category.
The new JLab TALK series has an option for every need and budget with the affordable Talk GO (£49.99), the Talk (£99.99), and, the more premium option, Talk Pro (£149.99) which are all available from Argos and Curry’s. The Microphones are also available in the U.S. on Amazon and BestBuy with prices from $49 to $149.
The genesis of JLab Audio’s Talk series followed a similar path to the rise of their audio products. As smartphones rose in popularity, JLab’s wireless headphones and earbuds were created in line with direct demand by consumers and retailers for high-quality, affordable alternatives to what was on the market. With interest in podcasting, game streaming and unboxing videos becoming more prevalent in the last few years, so has the need for affordable differentiation.
JLab CEO Win Cramer saw there was a strong opportunity to extend JLab’s signature style of feature-packed, quality electronic accessories into the USB microphone category. JLab’s engineers rose to the challenge with the development of the JLab TALK series with the same innovative development and bring-to-market process that has led the company to become the #1 true wireless earbud brand in the US in the under $100 category according to NPD.
Each JLab Talk microphone has been tuned to deliver optimal sound recording for the usage scenario for which it was created. The Talk GO is compact, lightweight and portable, designed for calling, streaming, and podcasting. The second product in the collection, the JLab Talk, ups the ante by including three condensers and four directional options, all at a price point below leading competitors offering similar features. For those looking for a professional-grade USB mic, the Talk PRO takes the series to the next level by increasing the recording sample rate to an impressive 192k.
All JLab Audio Talk series microphones feature 24-bit rate, plug & play compatibility, 3.5mm headphone jack for zero-latency, quick-mute button, 5/8″ mount foldable stands, and on-mic controls. In addition, each model comes with a 5-foot USB / USB-C braided cable, providing ample length for positioning microphones when recording both audio and video.
JLab CEO, Win Cramer, commented, “JLab excels at creating accessibly priced, innovative options in the technology space. While we’re not abandoning our roots in audio, the Talk series shows that JLab’s ability to innovate can go well beyond what you hear, to what you say, and potentially, even further.”
