MXL Overstream and MXL Overstream Pro Youtuber Microphone Review

The MXL Overstream Bundles provide live streamers with a high-quality studio XLR microphone

We test a professional microphone, especially designed for video streamers. The MXL Overstream microphone bundle takes your broadcasts and videos to the next level with this desk-mounted hinged-arm microphone. My two sons (8 and 10) are avid gaming streamers and they love the MXL Overstream microphone. Now they can stream like their favorite Youtube gaming streamers. Right now they stream mostly game play in Brawl Stars. They previously used a Blue Snowball microphone to record their live gameplay commentary.

Comparing their old videos with videos recorded using the MXL Overstream microphone, the difference in the audio quality is signficant. It's much clearer, chrisper and fuller. The microphone also reduces the background noise dramatically. In earlier videos, you can hear the fan of the iMac. The MXL Overstream cancels anything that comes from behind the microphone. If you or your kids are serious about streaming a studio quality microphone like the MXL Overstream is a must.

What's included in the MXL Overstream Bundles

Desk-mounted, hinged-arm mic stand

integrated all-in-one pop filter and shock mount

Choice of either the 990 Blizzard or 990 Blaze condenser microphone (blue or red LED light)

The Overstream Pro Bundles include in addition to the above the Mic Mate Pro XLR-to-USB audio interface

Where to Buy

The MXL Overstream Pro Bundle is available for $249.99 on B&H Photo. The more affordable MXL Overstream Bundle is sold through Amazon.com for $199.95.

The 990 Blizzard and 990 Blaze feature a wide frequency response, tight high end, and solid low and midrange production. The cardioid polar pattern helps reject any noise from behind the microphone. The LED powered illumination of the microphone is a nice touch.

The bundle comes with table clamp and swivel mount options. I used the table clamp to mount the hinged-arm mic stand. The build quality of each component is very good.

The Mic Mate Pro offers a single USB input with control over gain and headphone volume so you can start live streaming right out of the box. The bundle I tested included the Mic Mate Pro. You can find the full specs on the MXL site.

California based MXL Microphones is the professional audio division of Marshall Electronics, a privately owned company specializing in industrial and consumer electronics. Marshall Electronics was founded in 1980 by Leonard Marshall, who owns and operates the company today, and his keen interest in microphones was the driving force behind the establishment of MXL Microphones.
