The new Logitech G Yeti GX microphone, Yeti Orb microphone and Litra Beam LX light came out Tuesday to pump up sound and immersive play for gamers and streamers, Logitech’s gaming division said Tuesday.

Logitech G said it designed the new Yeti microphones and Litra light to meet the needs of game streamers and content creators with broadcast-style audio and pro-level lighting gear. And they work via Logitech’s G Hub software.

“Together, design and engineering experts at Logitech G created a unique gaming microphone with professional-grade audio and a host of features tailor-made for gamers,” said Vincent Borel, Logitech G’s head of PC Gaming and Creators products.

“We understand that gamers want to engage and share their experience with their audience. For those that play to be seen, this is the gear that enables them to play together and express themselves to their communities,” he added.

Yeti GX microphone

Here’s how Logitech G described the Yeti GX mic, designed for easy setup:

Based on the iconic Yeti design, the Yeti GX is a premium, broadcast-style gaming microphone with dynamic capsule technology that delivers unparalleled audio performance. It features a supercardioid pickup pattern that elevates the voice while rejecting room noise, keyboard clicks and other background sounds. The Yeti GX features one handed control of mic gain by cleverly leveraging a scroll wheel from Logitech G gaming mice. Users can easily dial in the gain and, with a simple press of the wheel, apply Yeti GX’s Smart Audio Lock feature to prevent clipping and reduce background distractions thanks to a powerful onboard DSP.

The company added the Yeti GX is compatible with the existing Blue Compass boom arm and an updated Logitech G version of the Compass arm (coming soon).

Logitech G Yeti Orb microphone

Designed for gamers new to streaming, Yeti Orb is a gaming microphone with high-quality audio and easy plug-and-play USB connectivity, Logitech G said. It features a custom condenser capsule with a cardioid pickup pattern that focuses on voice, reducing key clicks and background noise.

And both mics work with the same voice filters:

Both of these new mics include Blue VO!CE Technology, accessible through GHUB software, to deliver real-time voice filters that further reduce noise and make your voice sound richer, cleaner and more professional. Blue VO!CE also features real-time filters to eliminate noise, smooth out volume levels, and bring out your best voice qualities.

Litra Beam LX key light

Litra Beam LX, a dual-sided RGB streaming key light with Logitech G’s TrueSoft technology, helps shape and direct light:

TrueSoft technology delivers cinematic color accuracy and advanced diffusion by eliminating harsh shadows with adjustable brightness; color temperatures ranging from warm candlelight to cool blue (2700K – 6500K) and RGB settings. Certified safe for all-day streaming, Litra Beam LX has cleared the strictest UL testing guidelines.

All three new products feature Logitech G’s immersive LIGHTSYNC RGB technology. Available in GHUB software, it synchronizes color and lighting for customized effects. You can also synchronize lighting across all your LIGHTSYNC-enabled devices.

All Logitech G products are certified carbon neutral, the company added.

Pricing and availability

Yeti GX ($149.99) and Yeti Orb ($59.99) are available in black, and Litra Beam LX ($149.99) comes in in graphite at LogitechG.com, Best Buy and Amazon.
