Product Highlights
  • USB Connection to Computers
  • Large Condenser Capsule
  • -10dB Pad Switch
  • Low-Frequency Roll-Off Switch

The CAD U37 USB Studio Condenser Microphone features a USB connection for plug-and-play operation with any Windows or Mac based computer. The U37 delivers studio-grade quality and the convenience of USB connectivity at a modest price.

A 10' (3 m) USB cable is supplied. The large diaphragm condenser element is USB bus powered and features a warm, extended frequency response for smooth vocal and instrument reproduction. The cardioid polar pattern effectively reduces off-axis noise and feedback.

A low-frequency roll-off filter eliminates hum, rumble and other low frequency noise. A -10dB Pad switch adds headroom when capturing excessively transient signal. The U37 is an ideal solution for vocals, speech, instruments, podcasts and desktop recording.

    I record voice overs and gameplay with commentary and by far this is the best mic I have used.

    I am not picky when it comes to quality but I would prefer to hear the details in one's voice, though if I can get any recording I will use it.

    But this microphone picks up any possible detail in a voice wanted.

    It's sharp yet smooth and very clear.

    I'm in a small, desktop environment and I was afraid of size when I first saw it.

    It didn't look too large but I was unsure.

    When I got the package (let me also tell you I got it one day earlier than originally estimated), I opened it and was surprised by it's build quality. While I have no other microphone bodies to compare with I am familiar with DSLRs' builds (with some I don't like).

    This felt like quiet a sturdy microphone; but sadly, the same can't be said for it's tripod.

    I am very pleased it comes with a tripod at all. It's not BAD per se, but it feels very plasticy compared to the microphone and it's place where it holds the microphone feels less than secure (in that it could fall over).

    I still will give it a 5/5 for great sound and a working tripod and holder.

    Good

    I use the microphone for narrations on my video projects.

    It is easy to use.

    I need more control over the bass and treble.

        Great concept. Just didn't deliver on performance. It produced a high pitch crackle no matter what setting. Have been working with audio since the 60s and this baffled me.

        B&H was great on return process and exchange for better product.

          Comments about CAD U37 USB Studio Condenser Recording Microphone:

          I use this product to produce a live audio stream radio show. I like the low price, and it comes with a good stand and 10 feet of USB cable that plugs into the bottom of the mic on the stand and then plugs directly into your USB port and in Windows 7, it was up and running before I had a chance to realize it. that fast.

          Sound; the sound quality is best when setting the top switch to -10 DB and this makes for better sound.

          What's not to like?

              I use the U37 for the live broadcast of the Sunday Services of the church that I attend. I was able to just plug and go. I use a macbook pro and it works seamlessly with the streaming service that we use. It has been one of the best purchases that I have made. You can't beat the price either.

                  It does do vocals and voice very well, but I could not get the fuzz out of the background of the instruments therefore it made all of the instruments I tried to record distorted. But, for the price... not bad.
