The noise cancelling is powered with a AAA battery that is not rechargeable, which is interesting given that these headphones are wired. Unfortunately, there is no information available regarding its specifications such as its frequency response range or nominal impedance.

Maximilian_DOOD uses an AT2020 XLR microphone. Maximilian_Dood’s gaming setup features the same microphone that is found in many other streamer’s setups, including Gosu, TeePee and TSM_Daequan. This microphone utilizes a unidirectional polar patter that offers a frequency response range of 20 – 20,000Hz with a nominal impedance of 1000 ohms and a signal-to-noise ratio of 74dB/1kHz @ 1Pa. It is important to note that he does have two other microphones in his studio, but this is the one that he uses during his solo gaming streams.
It requires 48V of phantom power, so you will need to buy both a 3-pin XLRN cable and relevant audio interface, as well as a microphone stand. There is also a USB version available.

Maximilian_DOOD uses a Sony a7 III camera with a Sony SEL2470GM FE 24- 70mm lens. He has gone all-out with this combination, as together they come out at over $4,000 USD. This is unsurprising given that the Sony a7 III alone offers an ISO range of 100 – 51,200 that can be expanded to 50 – 2,048,07. Its lens has 4D autofocus as well a 24.2MP CSI full-frame image sensor which can process data at up to 1.8x the regular speed. This mirrorless camera also features built-in 5-stop image shake reduction, as well as image stabilization and a 15-stop dynamic range.
It has a battery life of up to 200mins of continuous shooting, which would necessitate purchasing extra batteries for lengthy out-door shoots. These features alone, without taking the lens’ capabilities into account are arguably far beyond the requirements of a basic steam, as there are many top streamers who are happy to stick with a basic webcam even though they can definitely afford a professional camera they wanted.
