        Comments about Senal XU-1648 XLR-to-USB Interface:

        Even though the brand is not really famous (and actually, this is the first time I heard "Senal"), but this product is a good alternative to Shure X2U. It is cheaper but has all the features: Headphone out and Phantom Power.

        The output sound is also loud and clear.
