Beacn Mic and Mix Create Review: A one-two punch for content creators

Beacn is a new brand in the world of content creation, but there’s a good chance you’ve seen this team’s work before. The creative minds behind the GoXLR and GoXLR Mini broke off to form Beacn, and today we’re looking at its first products: the $279 Beacn Mic and $199 Mix Create mixer. Made by and for content creators, these products deliver next-level customization and sound crafting. Taken as a pair or individually, they’re evolutionary, and expensive, products that show what’s possible when designers truly listen to the wants and needs of their audience.

Design of the Beacn Mic and Mix Create

The Beacn Mic takes its inspiration from classic broadcast microphones like the Shure SM7B and updates it with a 2022 sense of style. Available in black or white, its long, cylindrical body is composed half of zinc alloy and half of the foam pop filter hiding the dynamic microphone capsule within. Its two sides are split by a customizable RGB light ring. It’s hardly subtle, but is exactly the kind of accessory that pops on camera and ties nicely with the RGB lighting common in streamers’ setups. Along the sides is a U-bracket that attaches to any standard microphone arm and allows the microphone to tilt to address your mouth.
