Samson Q2U Handheld Dynamic USB Microphone Recording and Podcasting Pack (Black)

Samson's Q2U combines the convenience of digital and analog audio capture into one dynamic microphone. With XLR and USB outputs, the Q2U is the first choice for home, studio and mobile recording, as well as stage performance. It comes with a mic clip, desktop tripod stand with an extension piece, windscreen, XLR cable and USB cable… A package with everything you need to start recording right out of the box.

Make Connections

Overall, the Q2U provides significantly improved audio over a headset or your computer's internal microphone. The Q2U can be connected directly to your computer or mobile device via USB, or plugged directly into a mixer or audio interface with an XLR cable. You can also utilize both connections simultaneously for recording a live event or performance. The Q2U works with iPhones and iPads via Apple's Lightning to USB Camera Adapter or Android devices via a Host OTG cable.

Podcast Perfection

If you're looking to start a new podcast, the Q2U is the best choice for creating a production studio on a budget. Whether you're recording a solo broadcast on your laptop or multi-person interviews through a mixing desk, the Q2U delivers high-quality audio effortlessly with minimal setup. It even has a 1/8 (3.5mm) headphone output to monitor the audio you're capturing, as well as the audio from your computer.

A Stud in the Studio

The Q2U is a great mic for home/studio recording. Its dynamic capsule is great for miking vocals, instruments and amplifiers. Onboard, high-quality analog-to-digital converters provide excellent audio reproduction. The Q2U's cardioid (unidirectional) polar pattern picks up sound from in front of the mic, while rejecting unwanted sound from the rear and sides. This minimizes the amount of ambient/room noise that is captured on your recordings.

Samson Q2U Handheld Dynamic USB Microphone Recording and Podcasting Pack (Black)

Samson Q2U Handheld Dynamic USB Microphone Recording and Podcasting Pack (Black) SKU: SAQ2UTB

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well for Home Piano Studio My wife is a college piano teacher and unfortunately the pandemic has forced piano lesson to be remote. Finding equipment to do a good job of this is difficult, it seems like everyone else is in a similar boat. I'd read many reviews about the Samson Q2U and decided to give it a try, but it was nearly impossible to find anyone who didn't have it on back order, in fact, Focus was the only site I could find that actually had it in stock, and with a decent price! We ordered the microphone and it arrived in about a week (California). It's turned out to be excellent for what we're doing with it, it captures both the piano and voice quite well. Being able to connect it to a computer via USB is very convenient. Comes with a small stand, and XLR cable, in case we decide to use a mixer down the road. We're happy with the purchase!
