Antlion Audio Launches the ModMic 5

Antlion Audio ( is proud to announce the ModMic 5 is now available on their website and will soon be available in retail stores worldwide. The ModMic is an award winning attachable boom mic that can turn any pair of headphones into a headset for gaming, streaming, or VoIP and more. The patented base clasp securely adheres to any surface and the super strong neodymium magnets holds the mic in place. The 5th generation improves on the original design across the board, adding dual mic capsules, a fully modular cable system, and premium grade materials to deliver the pinnacle of custom audio.

With the flick of a switch the ModMic 5 goes from studio quality to noise canceling mode through the innovative dual capsule system built into the mic boom. This means that a single ModMic can go from a quiet home environment where quality is needed for recording or streaming to a noisy office or LAN gaming event where noise cancellation is essential. With the compact carrying case included, bringing along high quality sound has never been easier.

The most common feature request by customers has come to life as well in the form of a fully modular cable system. This allows users to select the right cable length for their needs and quickly swap over to different devices, such as PC, current-gen consoles, or smart phones. Included with the modular cables is a detachable mute switch module and the new cable wrap system, which ensures perfect cable management, keeping the cords from the headphones and the ModMic tightly bound together.gdl-0500_modmic5_details_miccapsule_rgb

Finally, the materials in the ModMic have been improved across the board. From Kevlar reinforced cabling to a thicker steel spine and a stronger magnet, there’s never been a better ModMic than the ModMic 5.

“This is the culmination of taking years of feedback from our users and putting every reasonable improvement suggestion into action, we have never been more proud of and thankful to our many fans, and we believe the ModMic 5 will show our commitment to listening and acting on their feedback.” – Elishaya Wisnievitz, CEO of Antlion Audio.
