WHAT MOUSE DOES SOMMERSET USE?
Sommerset uses a Logitech G703 Lightspeed mouse.
Sommerset’s gaming setup features the white version of the Logitech G703 Lightspeed wireless gaming mouse. It is constructed from plastic with rubberized side-grips for extra comfort and control, as well as a Hero 25K hero sensor. This sensor allows for a dpi range of 100 – 25,600. This can be set in increments of 50 with the possibility of up to four dpi profiles being stored onboard the mouse itself.

The sensor also offers a maximum tracking speed of up to 400 IPS at an acceleration speed of up to 40G.

WHAT KEYBOARD DOES SOMMERSET USE?
Sommerset uses a Kraken Pro 60 keyboard with a pink keycap set.
The Kraken Pro 60 is an ultra-compact 60% plug-and-play mechanical keyboard. It is available with Gateron Optical Silver Speed, Brown, Red, Blue or yellow switches, but Sommerset hasn’t specified which she has opted for. However, she has chosen to swap out the original keycaps for the Kraken Pin set that is available through Kraken’s main website. There is also a wide variety of other keycap schemes to choose from there.
However, side from its size and solid plastic construction and double shot PBT keycaps, the other draw of this keyboard is that all of its functions can be set and toggled between directly on the keyboard itself. There are nine preset RGB lighting options to choose from, including a Music Reactive Mode that is triggered by the keyboard’s built-in mic.
WHAT HEADSET DOES SOMMERSET USE?
Sommerset uses a HyperX Cloud Alpha headset.
The HyperX Cloud Alpha is a wired stereo headset whose 50mm neodymium drives provide a frequency response range of 13Hz–27,000Hz. They have an impedance of 65Ω and a sensitivity of 98 dBSPL/mW@1kHz. It has a sturdy aluminum frame, and the ear cups are covered in plastic. The headband is flexible and adjustable to improve the user’s comfort, which is also thy both the headband and earcups are padded in a leatherette-covered memory foam. Sadly, the earcups do not rotate.
It also features a unidirectional microphone with an impressive 50 – 18,000Hz frequency response range that is both TeamSpeak and Discord-certified. This is much wider than the average gaming headset’s range of 100 – 10,000Hz. However, one of its biggest attractions is its compatibility, as it can be used with PC, PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One S, Mac, Mobile, Nintendo Switch and VR. It will require an adapter if used with an Xbox One, though. They way 336g (11.85oz) with the mic and cable.

It has a sturdy metal construction and slim design so as to be durable without taking up too much space. It was designed with streaming and studio-recording in mind and can also process string instruments, drums and piano.
Its cardioid polar-pattern helps to block out unwanted background noises. Although it comes with a stand mount, it doesn’t have a pop-filter, windscreen or shock mount, so you may want to consider buy some to prevent unwanted plosives or electrical interference from filtering in.
WHAT WEBCAM DOES SOMMERSET USE?
Sommerset uses a Logitech BRIO webcam.
The Logitech BRIO is a fairly common webcam among content creators and is used by Replays, KingGeorge and Mongraal. It is therefore unsurprising that it also appears in Sommerset’s gaming setup as well. The Logitech Brio is a plug-and-play webcam that can either be clip-on to a flat screen or mounted on a stand. Aside from its 4K Ultra HD video capture capabilities, it also offers some other advanced features. These include the ability to zoom 5x closer, its RightLight 3 technology that automatically adjusts the camera lighting according to the room’s brightness, as well as a field of view that can be adjusted between 65°, 78° and 90°.
