Antlion Audio launched the ModMic 5, an upgrade to the existing ModMic 4, which we had reviewed earlier. The new version of the mic builds upon the features of the existing one with a few debatable but useful upgrades. The previous ModMic 4 was available in two variants – unidirectional and omnidirectional, and now the ModMic 5 incorporates both the type of mics in one single unit and they can be toggled with a switch near the mic. Earlier, the mute switch was also separated into two variants and this time, a detachable mute module is included with the package that can be attached between the cable and head unit. The fully modular boom mic can be attached to any pair of headphones suitable for gaming (consoles and Macs will still require the separately sold adapters), streaming and VoIP. In the package, you'll also get an extra, 2m long cable to extend the length if the default 1m length doesn't fulfill your need. The cables have been reinforced with Kevlar this time for increased durability. Priced at $69.95, the ModMic 5 is expected to start shipping soon.
