Update 12/04/2017: Pewds gave us a list of his gear in his latest video so we’ve updated the below.
Listen up, baby. Love him or hate him, Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg aka PewDiePie is the indisputable champion of Youtube celebrity. With over 50 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:
Pewd’s Maingear Custom PC
So he’s finally updated his PC with some psychedelic red paint and a custom build thanks to the friends at MainGear. If you really want to check out the specs, you can watch the 6 hour long build of his PC here (we couldn’t be bothered as despite Pewds being on the phone, he wasn’t in the video). If anyone wants to send us the spec, please tweet us at @manofmanytastes.
Razer DeathAdder Chroma Mouse
He changed up his mouse and keyboard to Razor. We think it’s for the pretty rainbow lights but it could also be Razor’s epic performance. It has a crazy 10,000 DPI optical sensor and capable of capturing movements of up to 200 inches per second and 50g acceleration.
Razer Firefly Chroma Custom Lighting Cloth Gaming Mouse Pad
That flash new mouse needs a flash new keyboard, yo!
Razer Blackwidow X Chroma Keyboard
His keyboard yo. Complete with mechanical switches for hard-core gaming. All the keys are full programmable for convenience.
Razer Kraken Pro V2 Analog Gaming Headset
In addition to changing out his keyboard and mouse for Razer, he’s forgone his pink spray painted headphones (listed below) and replaced them with some Razer Kraken Pro V2 headphones. They look absolutely massive on his head.
Cateck Bus-Powered USB 3.0 3-Port Aluminum Hub
This took us forever to find but we’re now 100% sure this is the right one. With a sleep apple-like design (even though he’s got a PC), it’s ideal to match his ASUS screens.
Audioengine A5+ Premium Powered Speaker Pair
With built-in power amplifiers, these are the perfect desktop zonemonitors, even among genuine audiophiles. Pewds definitely has some good taste.
Desktop Monitor Speaker Stands by Gear4music
These are small enough to fit on his big ass white desk and sit neatly atop his ASUS monitors.
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
Update April-17: Should’ve stuck with our original guess that this is in fact the one he uses. 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.
Sywon Metal Mesh and Foam Layer Pop Filter
In line with his new microphone he’s also updated his Pop Filter.
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.
Akai Professional MPD218 Sound Board
He’s recently got a sound board and put it in frame so you know he’s doing the sound affects. He’s the one doing that sh*t, stepping it up in 2017!
Steinberg UR22MKII 2-Channel USB 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.
Canon XA30 Professional Camcorder
Along with his new computer, he’s updated his camera from the XA10 to the XA30. It’s got an absolutely nuts 20X optical zoom. We’re really liking the quality of the image from his latest videos too.
Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920
Pewds also recently got this webcam to help with his live-streaming. It records and streams in 1080p. He’s not using it for a second angle in his normal vids.
SanDisk Extreme Pro 512 GB SDHC UHS-I Card
A good camera needs some fast and massive storage if you’re shooting in high quality. That’s why he’s got the best of the best SD cards with a crazy 90MB/s shot speed and 95MB/s transfer speeds.
ZOMEI Q111 55-Inch Professional Aluminium Camera Tripod
Update as of April 2017, we’re sure it’s a ZOMEI tripod. But, we’re not 100% it’s this one. At least we’re close. This isn’t the same god damn awful tripod. It doesn’t move!
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.
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).
We updated this given he’s now filmed a few videos with his girlfriend Marzia playing the Nintendo Switch.
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!
Danny DeVito Cardboard Cutout
Speaks for itself.
Did he died?
BroFist Neon Sign
All about that logo and branding bro.
10 Hour Red Apple Cinnamon Scented Votive Candles
To set the mood.
Canon XA10 Professional Camcorder
Update: He no longer uses this. 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.
Spray Painted (PINK & GREEN) Corsair Gaming H2100 Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset
Update April-17: He no longer uses this. Took us a while to finally work out what these were, but they are clearly the Corsair Gaming H2100 Dolby 7.1 Wireless Gaming Headset. Pewds has spray painted them pink and green and also wrapped some black gaffer tape around the head-band at the top.
Sennheiser RS 170 Digital Wireless Headphones
Update April-17: He no longer uses this. 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.
Sweet Assssss Glorious Extended White Gaming Mouse Pad
Update April-17: He no longer uses this. 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
Update April-17: He no longer uses this. 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
Update April-17: He no longer uses this. 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.
Shure SM7B Vocal Dynamic Microphone
Twitter user @sivemorten thinks he’s using the Shure SM7B, UPDATE: BUT HE WAS WRONG! 😉 . So now we’re not sure who to believe! Either way, you can purchase one below if you want to go with him… or us 😉
Neumann TLM 102 Condenser Microphone
Update April-17: He no longer uses this. 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.
