Shiphtur is a retired League of Legends player who first joined the scene in 2014. However, he retired in 2016 to focus on full-time streaming and has steadily grown his follower base throughout the years. Below, we have compiled an overview of the known peripheral’s that features in Shiphtur’s gaming setup, so a to provide a better insight as to how he optimizes his gaming skills and also how he ensures optimal production quality for his chatting sessions.
WHAT MOUSE DOES SHIPHTUR USE?
Shiphtur uses a Razer DeathAdder V2 mouse. The Razer DeathAdder v2 is integrated with a Razer Focus+ 20K optical sensor. This sensor provides a 100 – 20,000 DPI range with preset DPI option of 400, 800, 1600, 2400 and 3200. It is possible for Shiphtur to adjust these settings in increments of 50 through its Razer Synapse 3. However, he will need to register in order to do so. It also offers onboard polling rate options of 125, 500 or 1,000Hz. It can accelerate at up to 50g and offers a maximum tracking speed of up to 650 IPS.
It features 8 programable buttons, including the right and left clickers, serrated scroll wheel, two dpi buttons under the scroll wheel, two side buttons, and the power button on its underside. Its shape is designed for right-handed users, and it is suitable for all grip types, although the palm grip will be most comfortable for users with medium-sized hands. Its rubberized side-grips and 0.8mm-thick 100% PTFE feet help to improve the user’s control. Its non-detachable 2.1m (7ft) cable is designed to be drag-free and flexible.
WHAT HEADSET DOES SHIPHTUR USE?
Shiphtur uses Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro headphones. The beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO are a pair of dynamic, over-ear headphones with an open-backed design that offers a stereo sound experience. They are fitted with 45mm drivers that offer a frequency response range of 5 – 35,000Hz. There are two versions that have either a nominal impedance of 80Ω or 250Ω. It is not specified which version has been included in Shiphtur’s gaming setup.
The 80Ω option is intended for studio use, whereas the 250Ω are intended for professional end devices. They are primarily constructed from plastic but have a metal slider for the headband. The headband is then padded with leatherette-covered padding. The earcups, on the other hand, have soft, velour-covered padding. The earcups cannot rotate. They have a 3.5m (9.8ft) tangle-free cable that terminate in a 3,5mm mini-jack. This makes it compatible with PC, Mac, Xbox and PS devices. They have dimensions of 22.1 x 11.94 x 23.11cm (8.7 x 4.7 x 9.1″) and weigh 294.84g (0.65lbs.)
WHAT MICROPHONE DOES SHIPHTUR USE?
Shiphtur uses a Neumann TLM 102 microphone. The Neuman TLM 102 MT is the black version of this microphone. It is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone that is intended for studio recording of vocals and speech. However, it is also capable of recording louder instruments such as percussion instruments and drums.
It has a sturdy metal construction and utilizes a cardioid polar pattern that operates at a side-address. This provides a noise-cancelling effect that stifles unwanted background noise. Similarly, its built-in pop-filter prevents plosive sounds from filtering into recordings. It still provides a frequency response range of 20 – 20,000Hz, which can be boosted by 6Hz via the high-press filter switch. It has a nominal impedance of 50Ω, at a maximum SPL of 144dB and a sensitivity of 11 mV/Pa. It is powered with an XLR cable and requires 48V phantom power. This will necessitate buying a compatible audio interface as well.
WHAT WEBCAM DOES SHIPHTUR USE?
Shiphtur uses a Sony a6500 camera. Shiphtur’s gaming setup features this mirrorless, semi-pro digital camera. It integrates a 24.2MP CMOS APS-C sensor that is capable of recording movies within an ISO range of 100-25,600. This can be extended with a Sony E-mount compatible lens. Its shutter speed can be set between 1/4,000 second to 1/4 second (1/3 EV step,) as well as 425 autofocus points that are densely positioned over 84% of the image area. This ensures smooth transitioning during fast-paced shots. Furthermore, its IBIS improves image stabilization when hand-held, and reduces blurring and ghosting during night recordings. Its magnesium alloy body is weather-sealed and its flash is tilt-able.
All of these features are useful for IRL vlogging purposes but may be unnecessary for regular gaming streams. So, if you are looking into getting a camera for your setup, you might want to consider a basic webcam such as the Razer Kiyo Pro used by Wardell or the Logitech C922 used by KingRichard.
