Fifine Ampligame A8 Review


Looking for a budget microphone for Gaming or Streaming? then the Fifine Ampligame A8 might be the one for you. I’ll be doing a quick unboxing and then doing some sound tests to see how it performs.

I’ve used Fifine microphones in the past and I’ve been impressed with them, I’ll link to some previous reviews below. But let’s get straight into the unboxing and see what we get in the box. Just a quick not Fifine have provided me with the Microphone but have had no input on the review and all impressions and opinions are my own.

This is the newer version of the A6 which has received good reviews. So, let’s get into it and open the box. So first, you get a USB C cable included, however it would be nice if they had a USB C to USB C cable as well with an adapter for USB A. This would be helpful for Mac / Laptop users.

Ok so next we have the pop filter; I like the simplistic and clean design of it and of course you can use your own if you prefer. As this is a removable one. You also get a mount if you would like to use your own mic arm.

Now we have the microphone itself in White. Think it looks good and I like the fact it has the stand and shock mount built into the stand. This is ready to go. So, it looks like the mute button is on the top, we’ll test this later. The bottom of the Mic has the USB C port and a headphone jack & I can see microphone volume nob, to easily adjust the sound when gaming etc.

Right so now we have everything unboxed let’s go ahead and plug this into the PC. Ok so straight away you can see the green RGB light, I think this is cool I’m sure we can choose different colours later. But first let’s add the pop filter, this looks straight forward. And… that’s it, let’s try some different colours first. But once plugged in it should be recognised right away by your PC or mac. You may need to assign the inputs and outputs but normally this is automatic.

Listen to the sound test here:

Here are the specs for the Fifine Ampligame A8:

  • Connector: USB Type-C
  • Polar Pattern: Cardioid
  • Frequency Response: 20Hz — 20kHz
  • Sensitivity: -45dB ±3dB
  • Impedance: 2200 Ohms
  • Sample Rate: 16bit/48kHz
  • Max SPL: 120dB
  • Power Requirement: USB (5V DC)


All in all, I’m impressed with how it held up and the features it has. If you are just starting out and are looking for a starter microphone for gaming streaming or doing YouTube videos, then I think this is a good place to start. You could always upgrade to an Elgato Wave mic or even a Rode Podmic (this one is XLR only). But for simplicity this has all the things you need to get going out of the box, a pop filter a shock absorber and usb C connectivity. When I first started out I had to buy these as ad-ons for my snowball ICE microphone.

Well, I hope you have found this interesting and helpful. Would you consider this mic? or do you have one? Also, if there are any questions around this microphone or setup let me know in the comments.
