Rated 5 out of 5 by from The design is very impressive, sounds great! JBL Quantum Stream | Dual pattern premium USB for the money the sound is decent. The quantum software installs automatically when you plug it in. The design is very impressive, looks like a serious gaming microphone, the lights are awesome and it is well made. I have been looking for something like this that is affordable because headsets give me a bad headache. This sounds good supports 24g/ 96kh. I wear glasses and the pressure points of the part behind my ear just cause pain. The design quality and features are awesome, looks great on my glass desk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't know I needed one First off, packaging was standard JBL style. Nicely done and left me feeling it was something higher end. I never really had a use for a microphone before as the standard ones on laptops and cell phones were good enough in my opinion. But upon using it to video chat with some friends and family, i did not suffer with not being heard at times. I admit to mumbling, but even that should be heard. I don't game online or stream things. Honestly, my online presense is boring. Product quality is nice. Not like super high end feeling with crazy materials, but nice enough to stand up to some oops scenarios. Setup was easy. Plugged in the unit and my laptop picked up on it. I never really thought to have a microphone before, but the product did change my mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective and good looking product First, I would comment that the "Eco-Friendly Packaging" lives up to claim...I have never seen so little plastic used on packaging a consumer electronics product. Product mic is sensitive on cardioid and omnidirectional modes (though I had some trouble distinguishing between these operationally). I have so far just used for Zoom remote conferencing, and other people can hear me just fine and I can hear them as well. Headphone sound is great. Lighting color leaves no doubt when product is live or in mute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality microphone I was happy to get the JBL Quantum Stream for testing. As I am a daily online gamer, where I also talk to my colleagues, I was very excited, what they will say, when I'm using it while playing. The set up was very easy and quick, I didn't need the instructions booklet. As every online gamer know, you might get interrupted while playing, for example from your child or wife or even from a phone call. Therefore it is great that you can easily mute the mic by touching the top of the mic. The sound of the mic is very good, all of my colleagues told me, that they hear me very clearly and there are no background noises, just like rustling. Also the design of the mic is very nice. My wife first thought it was a speaker and not a mic. I would buy this great microphone for this price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy install. The stream microphone was very easy and quick to set up. I used it with my PS5 and connected flawlessly. The RGB lights are an extra touch. Perfect for streamers and pod cast creator. The mute button is handy for a fast emergency mute.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool Flashy Microphone, Can be touchy The microphone has a lot of features with it. I really enjoy that I can switch between omnidirectional and cardioid pick up patters as this is nice for switching between solo streams and group discussion. The color customization is a very nice touch. The only thing that I have found is that it can get a little glitchy and hang up with the quantum software. I had a few occasions that I had to unplug the microphone and reboot the software in order to get it to recognize again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing little product with great features I got the quantum stream a few weeks back. It was very easy to setup. The indicator at the bottom of the mic is very easy to recognize and helps a lot in recognizing if you're on mute or not. The design of the product is very simple and is light and can be carried easily. The light underneath are amazing and perfectly well lit. The quality of the sound is great. I would recommend this product for a streamer who is looking for a mic for a reasonable price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good microphone I bought this microphone two weeks ago. The sound quality is good and the receiver can hear the sound very good. It’s easy to connected with the PC. And it’s also short, so that it isn’t too big, so you lose less space. But for me it could be height adjustable, that you can move it easily The RGB is not too much though not too less, so that is perfect for me. And also a positive fact is that you can mute you on the microphone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid microphone - lots of features! JBL as usual As someone who works in IT, remotely from home - you can never have too many or too good of a microphone (or speakers, etc). I think most of us have had that person or coworker speaking over the phone or in a meeting and they sound like they are in a fishbowl or 300 feet away - no issue there with this microphone. I typically enjoy the build quality of JBL products - not much different here, it is solid (won't tip over easy) - with a metal base that is padded and can swivel. Can't really ask for much else with a microphone of this style. It is a little on the big side for my taste - but I have OCD and enjoy as clutter free of desktop real estate as I can get (hence monitors on monitor arm). The LED light is a nice touch and can be changed - not much to report there - not a big deal in my eyes since I don't have a flashy setup it will co-mingle with in that sense. My coworkers commented on the clarity of it the first time I got on to a meeting so that was a promising sign upon first use - no complaints or issues since. Only "gripes" I have are the USB power placement (underside pointing towards the base) and the oddly colored striped USB cord they provide - orange seems a bit out there and doesn't really go with anything I can see most people having on their desks but its a minor thing and getting another cable is no biggie. The software for this (JBL Quantum) seems pretty robust and the windows interface is nifty looking but for me personally I likely will not mess with it much - I could see if I was into actual streaming etc it would probably be nice to be able to fine tune settings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for gaming and work I got this JBL Quantum Stream for testing and my 13 year old son catched it immediately and take it to his room. The packaging was good and not to much waste, just paper and cardboard. It was very easy to install and connect to the PC, just plug and play. My son don't need any help. He used the microphone for gaming and for his YouTube videos. To turn it on and off you just have to tap on the top and the colored ring at the bottom will show you green - on or red - off. My husband tried the microphone also for telephone conferences at work. It was totally easy, just plug the mic in and it was ready for teams and others. With the control dial you can adjust the volume. If you push this dial you can adjust the sensitivity of the mic which is shown in the brightness of the colored ring at the bottom. All very easy and intuitive. We will recommend this mic as a good and valuable helper for work and fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, well designed USB mic that works with Macs I run my MacBook Pro in clamshell mode with an external display and prefer to have a microphone in front of me instead of speaking loudly towards my laptop in the corner of my desk. The Quantum Stream is a plug and play solution that offers simple controls, two mic modes, and sounds at least as good as the MacBook Pro's already decent built-in mic, if not better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality microphone. The JBL Quantum is sleek microphone. I wasn’t even aware that JBL made them, but I’m glad to find out they do. The Quantum is very easy to use. It has a single knob on the front to adjust the volume, which also affects the brightness of the LEDS. At the top, you are able to tap to enable/disable recording/audio. Green for audio and red for mute. Pretty simple if you ask me. I also really like how the Quantum can be positioned 360 degrees, this makes it more flexible to use depending on your preference. The Quantum itself is very sturdy and has a nice weight to it as well. The bottom part unscrews for easy storage or travel. Underneath there are two ports, one for the headphone jack and one for the USB cable. Setup is very quick & easy. I’m not much of a gamer anymore, but I have used the Quantum with Skype, from what my friends have told me I come in sharp and clear. I plan on making more use of this microphone in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect The JBL Quantum STREAM is a very good and recommendable, as well as affordable microphone, it is perfect for private as well as professional everyday life. It is very suitable for live games, online conferences like zoom, podcasts, etc. The directionality of the microphone can be easily switched by simply pressing and holding the volume button on the main unit. The main body can be rotated 360 degrees and e.g. mounted on a tripod and placed on a table depending on the location. One can toggle mute on or off with a simple tap of the button on the top of the main unit, making it a model that combines high functionality and ease of use. The illumination, which is also a feature of the JBL Quantum series, is designed so that the ring on the bottom of the main unit lights up and you can see the operating status by changing colors. The stylish and highly durable design and the stable aluminum stand should also be emphasized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unsurpassed Sound Quality Simply put, the JBL Quantum Stream microphone can hold it's own (and in some comparisons surpass the quality)...of other brand mics at a much higher price point. Beautiful workmanship and styling with excellent sound quality make this a must buy for those consumers who demand a more professional set up then they may currently be operating with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Studio Quality On Your Desk This microphone was designed to sit perfectly upon your desk/workstation. The first thing you’ll notice is just how nice and weighted this microphone sits. Perfect for your gaming, podcasting, or content creating, this microphone both looks good and delivers quality audio. Even good enough for a studio recording if you were in a bind!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JBL Has Stepped Into A New Arena! I'd like to start by saying that I was both both surprised and thrilled when I learned that JBL has now began manufacturing microphones (outside of those previously included with bluetooth headsets). I've been a JBL fan for years for the quality of their sound in both speakers and headphone and this time is no different! (Quick Side-Note: The demonstration video was recorded before I read the manual, so if you watch it, you'll hear some of my confusion of the functions that I mention here in text). Though I'm not currently a live streamer or a gamer, the JBL Quantum Stream Microphone still has a home with me as I do a multitude of things from video editing to audio voiceovers and this mic meets my essential needs. It comes in a durable box, tightly-enough placed in to avoid shipping damage. Luckily, the base-stand is already configured, so there's nothing you have to put together - plug-n-play, plain and simple. Included is strong a 6-ft. USB to USB-C power cable. Once plugged in, you notice that an LED light as the base of the microphone (but not the stand) which turns green. It gives a nice glow that will fit the vibe of any gamer or regular streamers' room. On the front of the microphone, there is a knob which controls volume of the gain input and the volume which in turn controls the brightness of the LED light. Basically put, the louder the volume, the brighter the light. The knob, which is also a button, clicks and when clicked changes the color of the LED light. For me, when I would click it, I would see the color change momentarily, but it would always revert back to green which seems to be it's default color for when the mic is hot (live). The button also serves as a funtion when held for approximately 1-2 seconds to switch between cardiod and omnidirectional. (*My demo video was set to cardiod only; I tested the omnidirectional setting after uploading my video). The mic itself feels solid and made of a durable material, yet it's lightweight and sturdy. I find it to be the perfect height and width as it's not too bulky for my recording space. Along the bottom of the mic, there is a headphone jack and the USB power port. Part of me initially wished that the USB port had been on the back, but I've grown (since my recording) to like it's position as I now find it to not be in the way. It was truly plug-n-play for me - I think my PC may have taken a moment to install a driver like it typically would for any newly recognized device, but nothing long or unordinary. Upon turning on my recording DAW (digital audio workstation), I was able to choose this mic as my recording input device and immediately test this baby out. I spoke as far back as about 18 inches to getting right upon the mic, to speaking into the side and to the back of it, too (on the cardiod setting). All of this was without a pair of headphones plugged into it, too, by the way; so with that said, me turning the knob which controls the volume had no bearing on my recording since I wasn't using it as an output with headphones - which I think had a bearing on the color of the LED light continuously reverting back to green during my initial test. I discovered upon playback that the ideal distance from the mic to speak into it would be between 3 to 6 inches back, depending on how loud you're projecting. If you have a loud, carrying voice, maybe 6 to 10 inches back would be ideal for you. Sound-wise, I personally loved the clarity of the mic as well as the low-end. My natural speaking voice isn't the deepest, but even my lower speaking register gave a nice, warm tone when I played it back, without sounding muffled. I think for live-streaming or for a podcast that the sound of this mic is impeccable. I love listening to podcasts during my down-time and this mic makes me feel confident that if I wanted to jump into that industry today that I wouldn't have to seach for the "right mic" because I've already got such a top contender, sound-wise. Testing out the omnidirectional setting, it truly does capture a consistent sound no matter which direction you speak into it from, which I found to be convenient. This would hold well for a multi-person ran podcast if needed without having to invest in multiple mics for each person. The top of the microphone, to my surprise, is a mute button. Looking at it, you'd have absolutely no idea. I myself didn't know until I read the manual and tested it. There's no 'click' sound - you sort of just tap it and you'll see the LED light turn red to indicate that the mic is cold/muted. Also, sound-wise, the environment I recorded in was an almost silent room and the mic picked up no distortion or unusual ambiance sound - it captured the normal sound of 'dead air' I'd expect any mic to pick up, so I was happy about that. All in all, I give this mic a 10 out of 10. I've used many a mics in my time, and I have zero faults with this one. The sound is clear and warm-sounding and works for the intentions as made by JBL. When I tested it with my favorite pair of headphones (the JBL Club 950NC), it sounded marvelous. Great job, JBL - you've done it again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great microphone with minimal flaws This microphone was used mainly for gaming. The JBL Quantum Engine application was easy to navigate. The lights were vibrant & responsive. The application was hard to see as I was unable to change the background. The microphone is compatible with other voice & video programs which os a nice feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A stylish mike with excellent sound quality The mike looks great and the sound quality is excellent. Despite having no prior experience, figuring out the associated software was not too difficult. In addition, I personally love the LED at the base of the mike as a stylistic element. Adds a bit of flair that I think is great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quantum Stream Microphone Review I have used it, and I also let my visually impaired son and daughter-in-law use it. My daughter-in-law uses it for work pretty consistently for her job right now. This is what we all thought of the product. Pros: The design is very nice and sturday. We love that the cord is nice and long since we don't get that with many other products these days. The dictation works very well. Even when it is placed a little ways away from the mouth, it still picks up very well. On Zoom, no one complained about being able to hear. The sound came across very clearly. We also love that you can plug your headphones in directly to the speaker. It seems tro be very good at picking up speach, even if my speach isn't very clear. Cons: The software didn't always work very well on the computer. Meaning, sometimes we could open the software, and you couldn't read any of the buttons. You will be able to see this in one of our photos. Another con is that it picks up voices even from FAR away. That could be a pro as well, but when you are trying to dictate, that can get pretty annoying. Other than those couple of things, the microphone works very well. We love all of the features it comes with, and it even worked really well with 2 people who are blind. Because of the 2 cons, though, that's why we rated it 4 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality! At the beginning I would like to say that I am a product tester and this product was provided to me free of charge for 4 weeks. After that I have to give 2 reviews where I present my honest opinion, then I am given the option to buy the product (usually for a discount) or to return the product. When the package arrived one is directly noticed the beautifully designed packaging, which is decorated with very beautiful colors. The microphone was well protected during shipping, so it can not go kaput. When you touch the microphone, you will notice that the microphone feels very good and has a very good quality, because the microphone is completely made of metal from the outside. Setting up the microphone is very easy, only the "registration" did not work well, because the QR code did not work as intended. To set up, you only have to plug the USB cable into the device and then you can make settings in the free software, but this is not absolutely necessary. The sound quality of the microphone is very good, but I have similar quality even with much cheaper microphones can determine. The mute button on the microphone is practical only with me an error occurred. Sometimes it happened that when I muted myself that the LED strip (indicates whether you are muted) then permanently changed color, which I did not understand. The wheel with which you could change the volume is good.
