        Comments about Samson Q2U Recording Pack:

        At the price I paid toy-level was expected but this mike is the real deal. Nice, heavy, and nice little stand for desk top. It makes great voice recordings with the Cakewalk app included or even Audacity. Those headphones are nothing special but were pretty nice and keep background noise away from my ears.

          This product has been the best microphone I have gotten with a low budget. The headphones are great and the stand is practical but useful. Overall It's really a product I would recommend for everyone that is a beginner.

            I use this package (mic and headphone) to record vocals using Logic Express when I am on the road and at times at home with my kids to get them into singing (recording). The microphone is of a great quality and the sound quality via the headphone is also very clear. However, one of the downsides to the package is that the headphone is very uncomfortable. After less than a minute I wanted to get the headset off my head. I gave it to my 6 year old to listen to his game on his DSI and he started complaining that the headphones are hurting his ears. I took the headphone, lower the volume on his DSI thinking he was referring to the loudness but he was actually referring to the discomfort caused.
            All in all, the package is doing what I bought it for in the first place. Luckily, you can substitute any other headphones (3.5mm stereo male) with the QU2 microphone.

              I have a small production company and make local commercials and sports videos. I use this mic for voice overs and interviews and have found the quality to be surprisingly crisp for a [$] mic. I run all my audio recordings through Sound Booth to clean up the tracks but there really isn't much to clean up with this mic.

              Comments about Samson Q2U Recording Pack:

              I did a lot of shopping before choosing the Q2U, and could find no better value for the price. The mic sounds good, feels rugged and has a great feature set including an on/off switch, headphone jack and dual USB/XLR outputs. And to top things off, it comes with a set of headphones! My only complaint is that the mic does not seat tightly within the mic clip.
