JLab Audio is known for its personal audio devices; however, it claims to have translated its expertise in that market to the plug-and-play USB-connected mic. There are three of these new products: the Talk GO, Talk and Talk Pro. They all have a 24-bit rate, although the recording sampling rate rises from 96k to 192k in the Pro.

JLab is a company that usually releases products more like earphones. However, its latest release is a new line of microphones that connect with USB type A to type C. The OEM has divided its "high-quality" specs across the 3 models that make up this new Talk series, and pitches them at different, if increasingly relevant, use-cases.

They include making calls and podcasting in the Talk GO, through game-streaming in the vanilla Talk to "professional level" voice recordings in the Talk Pro. Accordingly, they all have different form-factors, although they share the same 5.8-inch mount, 3.5mm jack and 24-bit rate.

However, the Talk GO has a 5-foot cable, whereas the Talk has one of 6.5 feet in length and the Pro gets one of 10 feet, which are braided as with its siblings.

The Talk and Pro variant also has cardioid, stereo, omni- and bi-directional sound pick-up options, whereas the Talk GO has cardioid and omni only. The latter is also a dual-condenser mic, whereas the Talk and Pro have 3 each.

The JLab Talk series is compatible with PCs and Macs and come with a tripod apiece. They are available via Amazon and Best Buy from now, and start at US$49.99 for the GO (although this is discounted to $39.99 on Best Buy at present) to $149.99 for the Talk Pro.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
