ProfessorBroman has slowly developed himself into a staple of the Twitch community since he originally started up his streaming in January 2013, especially after he began playing Destiny 2 immediately upon its release in September 2017. Although he started out as a speedrunner, he now prioritizes creating Destiny 2 and variety content.
As he is an established streamer with a large following, producing high-quality content is important to him. In case you are looking into upgrading your setup, we have provided a brief overview of the equipment that features in ProfessorBroman’s gaming setup. However, it is important to note that he is sponsored by Logitech.
WHAT MOUSE DOES PROFESSORBROMAN USE?
ProfessorBroman uses a Logitech G604 mouse. The Logitech G604 is a wireless gaming mouse for right-handed gamers that has an extended thumb rest, as well as 15 programable buttons. Six of them are located on the right thumb side, while the rest comprise of the clickers, three on the metal scroll wheel, the Lightspeed wireless/Bluetooth buttons below the scroll wheel, two DPI buttons by the right clicker, as well as an on-off switch on its underside.
It is set with a HERO 25K optical sensor that allows for a resolution of between 100 – 25,600 DPI, a report rate of 1ms and a maximum acceleration rate of 45G. The DPI steps can be adjusted in increments of 50, while the mouse is able to store up to five profiles onboard. It is preset with options of 400, 800, 1600 and 3200.
It is compatible with Windows or later, maxOS 10.12 or later, Android 3.2 or later and Chrome OS. The Bluetooth mode requires Windows 8 or later and Android 5.0 or later. The rest remain the same. It weighs 135g (9.2oz) and has dimensions of 13 x 8 x 4.5 cm (5.11 x 3.14 x 1.77”,) making it better suited to users with small to medium sized hands.
WHAT KEYBOARD DOES PROFESSORBROMAN USE?
ProfessorBroman uses a Logitech G915 keyboard. ProfessorBroman has chosen the wireless, linear version of the G915 keyboard. In addition to being full-sized, it also has a column of programable G-keys on its extreme left side, as well as three M keys on the top-left corner on which to store up to three gaming profiles. There is also a volume wheel and media controls in the top right corner.
It is constructed on a metal base with smooth, thin plastic keycaps. These keycaps are set on GL Linear Red switches that have an actuation force of 50G, an actuation distance of 1.5mm and a total travel distance of 2.7mm. Its overall dimensions are 47.5 x 15 x 2.2cm (20.8 x 7.3 x 1.9”) and its weight is 1025g (3.63lbs.)
It is compatible with Windows 7 or later, macOS X 10.11 or later and Chrome OS.
WHAT HEADSET DOES PROFESSORBROMAN USE?
ProfessorBroman uses a Logitech G PRO X Wireless headset. Professor Broman’s gaming setup features the same headset as those of s1mple, DrLupo and chocoTaco. The G Pro X is integrated with Blue VO!CE technology that enhances the overall audio quality of its microphone. It is a offers a frequency response range of 100 – 10,000Hz, and its unidirectional head is 6mm (0.24”) long. This is 2mm (0.08”) longer than that of its predecessor, the Logitech G Pro. This isn’t really relevant for ProfessorBroman, as he uses a separate dedicated mic.
AS for the headphones, they are closed-backed to create a surround-sound effect and are set with 50mm PRO_G drivers which provide a frequency response range of between 20 – 20,000Hz with a nominal impedance of 32Ohms and a sensitivity of 91.7dB. Its earcups are cushioned with leatherette-covered memory foam padding. These can be swapped out with the spare set of velour earpads that come with it, if the user prefers.
The frame is built from aluminum forks and an adjustable steel headband that is also padded with leatherette covered cushioning. They weigh about 372g (0.82lbs) and are compatible with Windows 7 or later.
WHAT MICROPHONE DOES PROFESSORBROMAN USE?
ProfessorBroman uses an Electro-Voice RE20 microphone. The RE20 is a dynamic microphone with a large diaphragm and Variable-D design that is constructed from steel. It utilizes a unidirectional polar pattern and offers a frequency response range of 45 – 18,000Hz, a nominal impedance of 150Ohms and a sensitivity of up to -130dBm.
It is fitted with an internal pop-filter to reduce interference from plosive sounds, as well as an internal element shock-mount to decrease vibration-induced sounds from filtering into recordings. There is also a bass roll-off switch located on its base.
Altogether, it weighs around 1lb 10oz (737g), with dimensions of 8.53 x 2.14 x 1.94” (216.7 x 54.4mm x 49.2mm.) Its extras include a microphone clamp and hard-shell carrying case, but the XLR cable and audio interface will need to be bought separately. It doesn’t require phantom power.
WHAT WEBCAM DOES PROFESSORBROMAN USE?
ProfessorBroman uses a Sony a6400 camera. The Sony a6400 is a touchscreen, mirrorless ASC camera that features autofocus with 425 phase-detection points. This, as well as its real-time eye AF tracking capabilities can record at speed of 30fps at 4K. It can also shoot 24.2 MP images at 11fps with an ISO sensitivity of between 100 – 32,000. This can be set to shoot continuously with still-shot pauses for anywhere between 1 – 60 seconds.
All of these features are good for more established streamers of IRL vloggers, but there are plenty of pros who stick with basic plug-and-play webcams, so they’re worth checking out is you’re just starting out, especially since there will be additional costs for the capture card, HDMI cable, and camera stand, among others.
