The radio inspired USB Retro Microphone
It looks like Brando is creating more of their retro USB microphones. We covered one last month that was a cool design. Well, if you have a thing for retro, here is yet another retro microphone to make you salivate. This one is quite a bit more radio inspired with its well lit “ON THE AIR” sign just above the mic. I also greatly like that this new version looks a lot less like a bunch of cheap plastic. It may very well be made out of the same materials, it just doesn’t look as cheap.
Unfortunately, one down side with this new microphone is that it’s not actually wireless and it doesn’t actually say how long the USB cord is. It will support Windows 2000, XP and Vista; so no love for Macs apparently. There is volume control directly on the microphone and a mute button on it. It is just slightly more expensive than the other retro microphone, but in this case I think it’s worth it. It is being sold on Brando for $32 which is only a whopping $3 more than the other microphone.
