Roccat Torch Gaming Microphone Review

A Closer Look

This microphone is clearly a Roccat product, and it has quite a few design traits that tell us this. Yes, obviously the badge saying Roccat and their hilariously Thundercats-like logo, that’s obviously. However, the dark shiny finish of the plastics, and those dials all look similar to what we’ve seen on Roccat products in the past. This is a good thing, of course, as a Roccat fan, all your stuff will match.

It’s a very interesting design though, albeit one that’s fairly predictable at the top end. It’s a nice big microphone and it looks like it should really, no big surprises. It’s a hard-body design too, so it’s plenty durable, and the larger design means they can have the pop filter built into the body. Moving down, there’s the large Roccat logo, which has RGB lighting, but I’ll show you that in action shortly.

Around the back, there’s a similar mesh design, leaving the microphone nice and open, which could be useful if you’re recording the room rather than just a single speaker in front of the microphone.

The microphone joins onto the base unit with this cool pivot mount; Obviously, it’s straight right now.

However, you can adjust it to tilt back and forth to suit your needs.

It also twists around should you need that, or you can even remove it entirely should you wish to use your own stand or boom, as it’s a pretty common screw mount fitting.

The base unit is very interesting though, offering on-the-fly controls to adjust the pickup pattern, volume and gain. While I suspect most people will simply set these and leave them alone, being able to make changes quickly is a huge advantage while you’re gaming and/or streaming.

Around the back, there’s a fair bit crammed into that (surprisingly) slim base unit too. There’s a headphone jack for latency-free monitoring, a Type-C port, a recessed Type-C port (for connecting the base and the microphone together), a switch for adjusting the gesture distance, and a lighting control button.

As a child still in my 30's, I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
