Microphones are one of the most important things a singer has to have and are just as important to K-pop stars. While many idols use the standard black mic, especially while they are still in their rookie years, many choose to personalize their mics and customize them to add more dimension to their performances, and each one is simply beautiful to look at!
Here are some of the K-pop stars who have their own custom mics!

Custom (G) I-DLE microphones
Initially, only the leader of (G) I-DLE, Soyeon, had a custom microphone, one in a neon yellow color, due to her promotion as a solo artist. But this year, the other members finally got their own personalized microphones! In addition to the different colors and styles, each of the members’ microphones has their own personalized names at the bottom.

MAMAMOO custom microphones
In the case of MAMAMOO, four band members’ custom microphones were donated by their loyal and devoted fans, MOOMOO. While their fans financed their microphones, the members themselves chose the design they wanted. When they promote themselves as a group, they have the same matte black mic with a gold top. However, the shade of gold is lighter for Moonbyul and Solar, while the shade of gold is darker for Hwas and Wheein.
