Introduction


We would like to thank Arozzi for supplying the review sample.



Gaming, streaming, and uploading multimedia content to YouTube—or other social media and podcasts—are all things some users do on a regular basis. Other than a decent PC, a web cam and microphone are essential for a good result. Since there is an abundance of companies with a variety of products to choose from, users tend to get confused by prices, features, and brand names, which has many focus on advertisements and the latest buying drifts instead of on what they actually need. Thus, buyers usually go to the cashier with something that probably has a nice box and fancy specifications instead of having checked on the product's actual features. If you want to avoid this, we strongly recommend you spend some time reading through reviews and other user opinions before purchasing such a product.

Companies continuously emerge with at least a product at a competitive price that antagonizes a renowned for some praise for a start. After all, in most cases, the initial impression is what matters the most. Five years ago, a Swedish company enrolling in a variety of PC component categories was established under the name Arozzi. Nowadays, that same company is trying to prove that its products are worth considering, and it is trying to climb up the market chain. Last year, we evaluated a gaming chair from the company, and it is now nigh time we got a glimpse of more Arozzi products. This time around, we have on our test bench a vintage-desktop-designed microphone with a promise of studio-quality sound. The Colonna is compatible with PCs, Macs, and gaming consoles. Furthermore, it features a 3.5 mm headphone jack to which you can attach your headphone's cable, while a 5/8 " threaded mount is also available to make sure it can be mounted straight to a microphone boom arm. The Colonna is a "plug & play" microphone from Arozzi with a sub-€100 (around $122.75) price tag and promise of high-quality sound.
