      This bundle is amazing. From the case it comes with, to the quality of the mic. It is amazing for Podcasts and it even comes with a holder.

      It is simple to plug in, and the clarity is amazing!

          The bundle we purchased not for podcasting but for naration of service videos. This microphone did not require drivers and works flawlessly.

          Comments about Samson C01U Recording and Podcasting Bundle:

          It's astonishing to me that at this price, it buys such an impressive little system. Syncs perfectly with Final Cut Pro and Garage Band (though with GB, it seems you have to set up the mic as Audio Input in the System Preferences.)Quality is superb for the price. Comparing recorded voiceover with my studio AKG C-414, sound quality is amazingly comparable, though the noise floor of the C01U is understandably quite a bit higher. The mic seems to be preset with some amount of high-pass filtering, which for general voiceover use is perfectly workable.The package includes a durable aluminum flight case that houses everything including the mic, stand, shock mount and cables. What more could you ask, except maybe for a windscreen which is extra. Pretty impossible to complain, though!

            Well made and easy to use microphone. Sound quality was great at a piano/voice recital I recorded. Only problem I have had is when leaving it on auto adjust, it starts out too loud for the first note or two before adjusting down. Of course manual level control could prevent this. Very good deal and a great mic for the money

            This bundle comes with almost everything you need for an awesome setup. It has a suspension mount, a small desk stand, all the wires and software with a great USB microphone. And it all comes in a tough metal case. Only thing missing is a pop filter to complete your setup. Easy installation and usability, and all at a great price. Was looking at getting just the microphone, but B&H had the kit at such a great price I had to get it. Really glad I spent the time to come look at B&H's website.

                Larger than I expected, but good quality. I was hoping for better directional pickup since I use it for voice chat with speakers and it still picks up noise from my speakers when using it.

You'll spend the same money for just the mic for what i got the case for.Excellent all around. Want proof?Visit [@] and listen to any episodes after ep 5.

                      This is a really nice piece of equipment. I have used earlier model USB Microphones on my PC and was thoroughly disappointed to say the least.
                      The truly professional USB Mic s were way out of my price range until recently. I chose the C01U recording Pak with Sonar LE software and a very nice case I converted to carry two pistols to and from the range in. THis case must cost almost as much as the Microphone, yet they threw it in for free!
                      I recorder my child reading, directly to my MAC and then to my Wife's PC.
                      Great sound capture and easily saved to mp3 format and sent to the in-laws.
                      This Microphone makes us feel as though we were sitting in a recording studio. Way more that what we imagined and now we believe we have to become more sophisticated in our recordings to justify owning such a nice piece of recording equipment! I think we'll do as Woody Allen did with "What's up Tiger Lilly" and re-dub a movie or two just for kicks.

                          After receiving the CO1U Microphone I hooked it up to the computer the next day and tried it out. I recorded a few audio clips and the Microphone quality sounded great. It's honestly worth the price I paid for it. The fact that it comes with a mic stand and shock mount is absolutely awesome. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to do Fan-Dubbing or getting in to Podcasting. It does have some weight to it but I don't find that to be a bad thing especially if you want it to stay in one place and not have to worry about it being knocked over like the cheap [@] desktop mics you buy. All in all this was the best purchase I've made on a piece of computer equipment.

                          The audio quality of this microphone is incredible. I have used many microphones and this one by far has superb quality. Any problem is with the software. The mic came with Sonar LE (cakewalk) which is a great product but not simple enough for beginners. I ordered the entire microphone package (case, stand, cords, etc) The price with all the extras was still $75 less than anyone else for just the microphone!! [...]The sound is clean and perfect for podcasting. We are not for profit and had no problem submitting the tax exempt form. Would definitely do business here again.

                          My grandson is using this to record his non-electronic music, and it works very well.

                          It picks up a wide range, including the incidental high notes in the parrot shriek in the background. The playback notes are clear and as resonant as a beginner would want.

                          I am a podcaster that heavily depends on USB Microphones, and I would turn to none other than this. The Pros include superb sound quality, a convenient case to protect the mic, plug and play, and the price. The only thing that to me is not a real problem is the weight of the microphone itself. If I were you, i'd buy this now!
