So, let’s have a more detailed look at the JLab Talk USB Microphone and check out exactly what this plug-and-play high-performance desktop microphone is capable of offering you.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with the microphone’s size, the JLab Talk USB Microphone’s design is mainly focused on quality and portability, and as such, this high-performance desktop microphone comes at a fairly compact size, measuring just 5.3 inches long by 2.75 inches wide by 2.48 inches tall (135 x 70 x 63 mm), and weighing just 7.5 oz. (215 g).

Alternatively, if used together with its included Tripod, the whole set up will measure 9.25 inches long by 7.67 inches wide by 7.67 inches tall (235 x 195 x 195 mm), and will weigh around 14.55 oz. (412.7 g).

Moreover, I’d also like to point out that this desktop microphone features a simple and fairly minimalist design that ultimately gives it a very aesthetically pleasing look and allows it to blend in really nicely with the rest of your desk-space.

In addition, users can also use the microphone’s included Standard-Sized 5/8” Input for swivel mounting anything other than the microphone itself, such as camera tripods or other stands.

Last but not least, since the JLab Talk USB Microphone is designed / meant to used as a plug-and-play high-performance microphone, it also comes together with its own 6.5 ft. USB/USB-C Input Cable, which basically means that this plug-and-play microphone is completely free from drivers.

Thanks to that, users can simply plug it into their main device (PC, laptop, etc.) and immediately start recording in just mere seconds, and most importantly, in a hassle-free way.

AUDIO SPECS & AUDIO QUALITY

Now, onto the microphone’s main components. As said earlier, this is a plug-and-play high-performance desktop microphone that’s designed for having flawless audio recordings and podcasts on-the-go.

That’s mainly due to the fact that it comes equipped with a total of three (x3) Studio-Quality Condensers that come separated from each other into small protective 14mm Condenser Capsules, which ultimately is exactly what allows this microphone to offer its users a studio-quality Sample Rate resolution of 96kHz at a 24BIT Bit Depth with four (x4) different directional patterns available for recording (these will be discussed further ahead in the microphone’s “CONTROLS” Section of the article).

For those looking into more specifications, know that this microphone’s Transducer Type is based on a Condenser, which operates with a Pressure Gradient via USB digital output.

Last but not least, this high-performance desktop microphone features a Frequency Response that ranges between 20Hz – 20kHz and a Max SPL of 120DB (meaning the highest sound pressure level the microphone’s electronics can handle before the onset of audio distortion).

INTERFACE / CONTROLS

For the microphone’s controls, this plug-and-play high-performance USB microphone features a very simple interface, integrating just a few different controls for the microphone’s audio recording settings.

That said, we have a Volume Control and Gain Control Dial, a Directional Pattern Modes Dial (used to swap between the microphone’s 4 different directional patterns), and a Quick Mute Button (found at the center of the microphone’s Directional Pattern Modes Dial).

So, as mentioned earlier, users can also change between the microphone’s four (x4) different Directional Pattern Modes, for which they’re able to select between: Cardioid, Omnidirectional, Stereo, and Bidirectional, and this can be easily done by simply rotating its Directional Pattern Modes Dial.

That ultimately this plug-and-play high-performance microphone great for many different purposes, including for both Individual Calls and Business Calls, as well as for Voiceovers, for Podcasting, for music recording, and even ASMR, as you can simply choose the Directional Pattern Mode that better suits your needs.

COMPATIBILITY

Regarding the microphone’s compatibility, the JLab Talk USB Microphone features full compatibility with Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10 as well as any Mac running on the 10.10 version or higher.

SET UP / INSTALLATION

Last of all, I’d also like to note that setting up the JLab Talk USB Microphone is also a quick and easy process to follow, and the whole installation process shouldn’t take you more than just one minute or two.

It’s literally just a matter of plugging in both ends of the microphone’s 6.5 ft. USB/USB-C Input Cable to both the microphone itself as well as to your main device (PC, laptop, etc.) and you can immediately start recording with it.

Embedded below, you can find the company’s official video for the entire setup process of the JLab Talk USB Microphone:
