OVERVIEW

Quality USB microphone for music, podcasting, business and other applications.

This classic USB microphone bridges the gap between mid-level USB audio adapters and pro-line products that require additional drivers, special software, and/or excess cabling. The C01U is USB compatible with any Mac or PC, as well as most DAW software programs, including GarageBand. It also comes with Cakewalk's Sonar LE digital audio workstation software. Its ability to produce pristine audio recordings with ease and mobility, along with a desktop mic stand, mic clip, USB cable and carry pouch also included, makes the C01U a valuable addition to any studio.

The C01U features a large 19mm shock-mounted diaphragm efficient in reproducing both low- and high-volume sounds with equal articulation. The cardioid pickup pattern provides a smooth, flat frequency response. Capturing audio at 16-bit resolution up to a 48kHz sampling rate, the C01U offers the accuracy you need to be sure that what you hear is what you get.

    Comments about Samson C01U USB Condenser Mic:

    I would pay more for this microphone. The crispness & clarity & in-your-presence sound received & recorded is absolutely astounding! For a professional, condenser microphone that ONLY requires usb & no additional software for it to install, is music to my ears. I would recommend this mic for all your voice/vocal/acoustic needs. I am using it to broadcast my talks online. Precision construction & eq perfect!

    Comments about Samson C01U USB Condenser Mic:

    The sound quality isn't great, but when it comes to mics, you get what you pay for. Instead of getting a USB mic, you are better off just getting a little more expensive mic and some form of audio integration that has a USB connector.

      I haven't had this for awhile so I can't speak of its durability but I have used it enough to comment on its amazing quality of audio. It's spectacular.
