Listen up, baby. Love him or hate him, Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg aka PewDiePie is the indisputable champion of Youtube celebrity. With over 47 million subscribers and $12 million earned in 2015 alone, this Sweden-born personality with rapid-fire acerbic wit is basically a younger (and much nicer) Howard Stern for the Comic Con generation. And for those who don’t recognise the name, stop yelling at teenagers to get off your lawn. We’ve actually started getting into watching his videos of late to see what he’s about and we have to say we’re thoroughly impressed. Not only in his entertaining videos but PewDiePie’s desk setup and gear!

What started as a devout game-play enthusiast who earned a loyal following by reviewing video games with his own particular brand of lingo, has evolved into a trend-setting figurehead complete with a “bro army” and a slew of Youtube clips that extend well beyond one given arena. This includes his new setup tour below which we’ve expanded upon in this article and list of PewDiePie’s gear.
PewDiePie might make it all look so effortless, but in addition to his unparalleled geek-certified charm, as you can see from the video, it takes some killer gear to keep his operation running smoothly. Of course we were on that shit like white on rice and so without further ado please allow us to share a breakdown of PewDiePie’s desk setup and gear:
Humanscale Float Standing Desk
Helping PewDiePie maintain a perpetual state of spryness is this magnificent adjustable desk that seamlessly transitions between sitting and standing position. A must have for avid gamers and modern desk-jockeys alike it’s at the core of PewDiePie’s desk setup. See our list of the 15 Best Standing Desks for the Home Office here.
ASUS MX27UQ Monitor
For someone like PewDiePie, graphic resolution and monitor performance are essential. The ASUS MX27UQ Monitor offers a frameless LED display and utilizes state-of-the-art eye care technology to ensure that the Youtube star doesn’t basically go blind during his binge sessions.
Rode NT1KIT Condenser Microphone
The Rode NT1KIT Condenser is a reliable microphone with a 20Hz-20kHz frequency range that gets the job done at an affordable rate. To quote PewDiePie, “As long as you can yell in it, that’s all you need baby.” Naturally, the Rode perhaps deserves a little more appreciation given the fact that it manages to make PewDiePie’s somewhat broken English sound more or less clear as day on a consistent basis.
Neumann TLM 102 Condenser Microphone
Hardcore PewDiePie gear-heads have noted his past (possibly endorsed) shout-outs to the Neumann TLM so there’s a chance he uses it in addition to the trusty Rode mics seen in his video. With a painstakingly high sound pressure level, the Neumann has a loyal following and delivers clean, premium audio capture.
LyxPro Balanced XLR Cable
No condenser microphone setup is complete without an XLR cable. For that PewDiePie goes with the red LyxPro. Why? Because he wants to. Or maybe it’s the best. You’ll have to ask him yourself.
Rode PSA1 Swivel Mount Studio Microphone Boom
PewDiePie can rarely sit still and so naturally he needs a microphone mount that’s as dynamic and flexible as he is. Able to keep up with his ADHD-like agility is the Rode PSA1.
Steinberg UR22 2-Channel USB 2.0 Audio/MIDI Interface
Before the sound of PewDiePie’s energetic voice hits your ears it passes through a nifty Steinberg interface that comes equipped with two pre-amps and a slew of control features. PewDiePie says he doesn’t know how “this baby” works and he doesn’t have to because the little box does just fine handling his spastic outbursts of exuberance all on its own.
Sweet Assssss Glorious Extended White Gaming Mouse Pad
When it comes to the broad array of gear at PewDiePie’s disposal, one might not expect him to utter an orgasmic purr on the heels of introducing a mouse pad, but on the other hand he is a strange fellow and this is one hell of a luxurious mouse pad.
Corsair Vengeance M95 Performance MMO/RTS Laser Gaming Mouse
A mouse is to a gamer what a gun is to a hunter so if you want to make sure you kill the end boss then you better damn well have a great mouse on hand. PewDiePie ensures that no click goes unanswered with the Corsair Vengeance Gaming Mouse, which sounds as cool as it looks.
KBC Poker 3 Mechanical Keyboard
Gracing the PewDiePie desk set up is “the tiniest keyboard out there” in his words. Nevertheless, it’s a damn fine looking keyboard and odds are it performs with maximum precision. The KBC Poker 3 features ABS dual coating keycaps and white backlit metal casing and exudes a literal glow.
Canon XA10 Professional Camcorder
Given his line of work it’s safe to say that PewDiePie is pretty picky when it comes to his camera gear. To put it simply, if you like the way PewDiePie’s videos look then you’ll like the Canon XA10.
Life Saving Rode NTG4 PLUS Shotgun Microphone
No gunslinger will last without a spare pistol and when it comes to PewDiePie gear that spare pistol is a shotgun. PewDiePie calls the Rode NTG4 Microphone a “life-saver” on those occasions where he gets so excited he forgets to speak into his normal mic.
Sennheiser RS 170 Digital Wireless Headphones
PewDiePie definitely needs dependable headphones and it’s not just because he probably loves the sound of his own voice. These Sennheiser’s give his ears premium comfort and superb audio. Naturally, they’re wireless so PewDiePie can (in his own words) “move around and do shit” like “kick the wall if I want to”. Don’t worry, he doesn’t want to…yet. The Sennheiser RS 170s have been discontinued so get them while they last.
The PewDiePie desk setup isn’t all flashy gear and technology. Giving his feet some extra down time is this tiny hammock, which elicited yet another round of sensual reverberations from PewDiePie after he introduced it–a ringing endorsement if we ever heard one!
Neewer Camera Ring Light aka “Beauty Light”
PewDiePie doesn’t need the Neewer Camera Ring Light to look good but having it probably doesn’t hurt. What, you thought he just naturally possessed such a radiant glow?
Neewer Collapsible Photography Video Light Softbox Diffuser
Since you might not just be interested in PewDiePie gear, but are potentially set on actually being the next PewDiePie, we figured we should mention that you’ll also need a diffuser for that camera ring light mentioned above.
Huge Ass White Digital Clock
He might not know how to read military time, but what’s important to PewDiePie is that he knows how long he’s been commenting on the latest video game. He uses this white digital clock to stay on point.
Dope Ass Master of Boards Whiteboard
In spite of his purely improvisational vibe, PewDiePie actually keeps things tight and organized on this “dope ass” whiteboard. At least he says it’s for organization purposes. In the video he uses it to draw some male genitalia and then moves on so who really knows.
Wesco Pushboy Junior 175 531-25 Bin
All hail the trash bin! Hey, you want to be like PewDiePie or not? For those who didn’t see the video, PewDiePie kneels in worship before this Wesco Pushboy. Then a dog pops out. Yeah, he’s definitely an eccentric guy.
People People Transparent Speaker
PewDiePie is acclaimed for being open and transparent with his followers, which was perhaps his motivation when buying this minimalist speaker system that comes enclosed in a see-through case. On the other hand, he doesn’t exactly strike us as the symbolic type so maybe these are just a damn good set of speakers that blend perfectly with all the other exceptional PewDiePie gear.
Gizmac Accessories Server Rack
Housing a small arsenal of hardware for PewDiePie is this server rack, which he locks at night “so no one touches his shit”. That’s right, that’s right, that’s right (his words, not ours).
White Xbox One
If you’re anything like PewDiePie you probably like your gaming console with a little extra flair. Consider the white Xbox One for a little style and 500GB of memory.
Sony Playstation 4
It’s a new Playstation. You either have it by now or you’re getting it as soon as that last pay check finally clears. We (and probably PewDiePie) can’t think of anything to tell you about this console that you don’t already know.
Nintendo Wii U
Like PewDiePie, Nintendo Wii U likes mobility and interaction. This console might not have the same reputation among gamers as Xbox and Playstation, but we can’t picture a PewDiePie setup without it.
To think we’re rapidly approaching a time (if we’re not there already) where you can throw on a VR headset and actually be in the room while checking out all that PewDiePie gear. When you do such a thing there’s a good chance the HTC Vive will be strapped around your head.
LED Light Strip Kit
Turn your bedroom into a neon paradise with this LED light kit. All PewDiePie asks of you is that you name “your favourite colour, bitch” and “blam that shit on”.
Like PewDiePie we know how to end on a high note. Introducing PewDiePie’s…plastic drawers! Yeah, bitch! “They go out” and he’s “got all kinds of shit!” You thought he was a “dirty ho” but you thought wrong, bitch!
