Samson Q2U USB mic with HP20 Headphones
The Q2U brings digital and analog together in one convenient microphone.
Finally, a high-quality handheld mic to meet both your live sound and digital recording needs.
Take the Q2U to your gig for a professional live performance then take it home to record any new ideas right to your computer.
Whether your passion is recording or performing, this mic has you covered.
The Q2U is a dynamic handheld microphone that features both an XLR output and a USB I/O, so it can plug directly into any live sound console or any computer with a USB input.
And the microphone's on/off switch lets you control the audio to the XLR output, allowing you to perform in a live setting and record to a computer simultaneously.
This revolutionary mic also features a built-in 3.5mm stereo headphone jack with volume control for no-latency monitoring during recording.
Plus, a cardioid pickup pattern and a high-quality A/D converter with a 16-bit, 48kHz sampling rate ensure the sound reproduction in both live and recording applications is clear, detailed and accurate. It's also compatible with most computer based digital audio workstations, so your recordings can be developed with enhanced control and functionality.
It used to be the maxim that you couldnt get a really good microphone without paying top dollar, but in recent years, as components and manufacturing have got cheaper and better,
Samson is a company able to offer quality mic products at a price that just couldn't have been dreamed of a few years ago.
As a perfect complement to such a great recording microphone, the Q2U Pak also includes a pair of HP20 stereo headphones so you can mix, monitor and listen with comfort and accuracy.
The HP20's closed design and 40mm full-range drivers offer professional performance in nearly any listening application.
