Earthworks Audio Announces Major Partnership with Leading eSports Company PGL eSports

Milford, September 22, 2021 – Earthworks Audio is excited to announce their latest partnership with PGL ESPORTS, a leading independent esports entertainment company, in order to provide esports fans with the most authentic, life-like listening experience possible.

PGL ESPORTS will use Earthworks Audio’s line of USB and XLR streaming microphones, including the ICON and ICON Pro, for all of their commentators. By using Earthworks’ industry-standard microphone technology, any esports event under PGL will allow fans to immerse themselves into the game like never before.

“Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve hosted several online tournaments, and finding the best audio capture solution for a remote broadcast was always challenging,” says PGL sound engineer Alexandru “ON” Călin. “Right now, I believe we are in the best place; I am enthusiastic about our partnership with Earthworks Audio. Being familiar with their equipment and how they strive to reach audio quality excellence, we will definitely increase the value of our future remote broadcasts. Their products are the best option on the market when it comes to superior sound capture.”

Earthworks microphones will be heard and seen on PGL event broadcasts for world-renowned competitive games such as, among others, DOTA 2, Apex Legends, FIFA, and CS:GO. These events regularly bring in over 250,000 peak viewers, with some reaching 950,000+. Not to mention, their mics will be seen by some of the most well-known Twitch personalities, adding a higher level of sonic clarity to their streams.

“Live-streaming is the future of our industry,” says Earthworks’ VP of Sales & Marketing, Mike Dias. “Thanks to the ultra-fast transient response of our microphones, we are able to provide viewers with an experience that puts them right in the middle of the action. We could not be more excited to work with PGL to provide stellar audio quality to their personnel, and to provide more value to their broadcasts and viewers.”
