Neat Reveals Its First Microphone After Turtle Beach Buyout


Quirky microphone brand Neat was purchased by Turtle Beach back in January. And while the company hasn’t gotten any less quirky, its newest microphone is a bit … strange. Meet the Skyline, an “elegant” and affordable USB condenser microphone that’s shaped like a skyscraper.

The Neat Skyline costs just $70 and features 44-bit, 96kHz audio (better than the Blue Yeti on paper). It connects to your computer via USB cable and has a very large mute button. Because it’s a condenser microphone, it should work at a comfortable distance and deliver high-quality audio, though it doesn’t pack any noise-cancellation features.

From a price perspective, the Neat Skyline looks like a great product. But I’m honestly a bit hung up on the design. It looks very corporate, like something you’d find in a meeting room or on the desk of a CEO. The Skyline is a far cry from the fun and quirky mics released before Neat was purchased by Turtle Beach, such as the King Bee.

You can now pre-order the Skyline for $70 at the Neat website. Price-wise, it’s a compelling alternative to popular desktop mics like the Blue Yeti.
