It is able to pivot, swivel, tilt and move up or down in order to be as versatile as possible.

It also comes with eight programmable buttons that are located in different positions on the sides, scroller wheel and next-to the right and left click buttons of the mouse.

Pestily uses a CORSAIR K95 RGB PLATINUM keyboard. The CORSAIR K95 RGB PLATINUM is a full-size RGB mechanical gaming keyboard. Its Cherry Mx Speed switches have a 1.2mm actuation speed which are set onto an anodized brushed aluminum frame, weighing 2.92lb (1.3kg) in total.
It also features a single row of 6 programmable G-keys for game macros and a volume wheel. On conjunction with the G-keys are three profile buttons, allowing for three gaming profiles to be saved directly onto the keyboard. This means that it can be easily switched between devices without needing to install the software and resetting each profile from scratch each time you use a new device. Unlimited profiles can be set and stored on Corsair’s iCUE. software, thereby making it possible to quickly switch them onto the keyboard when you need a break from your current top three games.
Pestily’s keyboard also comes with a detachable wrist rest. The wrist rest has rubber feet to further prevent the keyboard from sliding during use. It also has a magnetic reversable pad to accommodate both those who prefer smooth pads and those who prefer textured pads.
WHAT HEADSET DOES PESTILY USE?
Pestily uses Corsair Virtuoso headphones. Pestily has chosen a less common headset for his gaming setup with the Corsair Virtuoso’s. They are a wireless, closed-back RGB with 7.1 surround sound that have a signal range of ~60ft (18.2m). Their sensitivity is at 109dB (+/-3dB) with an impedance of 32Ohms at 2.5kHz and a frequency range of 20hz-40,000Hz.
The earpads are made from a leatherette fabric filled with memory foam padding that is also found around the adjustable, aluminum headband. A microphone mute button and volume wheel can be found on one of the earcups, and input ports for USB to USB-C or USB-C to USB-C plugs on the other.
It’s important to note though, that there are many people to find them uncomfortable, so it’s a good idea to try them on in a brick-and-mortar store first.

It is designed to be durable with its solid full-metal construction and weight of 750g. As it is dynamic, the Rode Procaster doesn’t need to use phantom power, even though it uses an XLR cable. It will still need an audio interface for full optimization.
It also comes with a few bonus items including a plastic stand mount, 3/8-inch adaptor, ten-year warranty and zip pouch.
