ModMic is used in conjunction with your over-the-ear headphones.
Headphones and mics(microphones) do not always pair up nicely, whether it be a nice pair of headphones without a mic or a pair of headphones with a low quality mic, you may come across a few problems. Antlion Audio works to help the great pair of headphones you have, have an additional boom microphone that will work well with them. Antlion Audio focuses on helping those who have a great pair of headphones get an additional attachable/detachable boom microphone that does not get in the way and provides great/greater quality to what they originally have. Jimmy Console is the founder of Antlion Audio and the inventor of the ModMic, who had a pair of headphones that he loved but no mic and and another pair with a mic but terrible audio quality on both. He decided to create a product that would allow him to use his awesome headphones and seamlessly add an equally awesome mic to it. The ModMic 1.0 was born and Jimmy and Elishaya Wisnievitz set to work crafting them by hand and selling them to whomever they could based out of Portland, Oregon.
Antlion Audio released just a product to help those seeking better equipment to use for audio, called the ModMic 4.0 Omni-Directional with Mute Microphone. It is an ideal product to use for all those looking for a richer recording quality, in the fields of audio casting, streaming, recording in AV production, office conference calls, and more fields in the making. The ModMic 4.0 offers a sensitive Omni-directional capsule to serve needs of the true audiophile. It captures sound over the full range of audible frequencies with very little distortion of original signal. The in-line mute switch instantly silences your mic. The microphone is easily attachable or detachable thanks to a novel, patented design and the adjustable boom gives you flexibility to best position the mic for performance and comfort. A 3.3 meter coaxially-shielded copper cable with clips easily attaches to computers or consoles. The standard 3.5mm jack for immediate plug & play on a PC; available adapters for Mac and console use. The product costs $49.95 through the Antlion Audio website and $54.99 through Amazon.com
Reviews: A beginning streamer…....The microphone has “solid audio quality” and “simple to use”. It is easily able to be put onto a normal headset along with being easy to attach and detach from the headset. The magnetic attachment makes it very convenient to take on and off when not in use, onto the metallic headsets. It is good for Twitch streamers, YouTubers, and for those who generally need a mic to talk with associates or friends. It also has a decent price point making it desirable for purchase.
