    Samson C01U reviews

    C01U Pro USB Studio Condenser Microphone (Silver) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality with any frills I'm using this Samson USB mic for recording voice-overs for training videos. Setup was a breeze - plugged it in, and I was recording with it through Audacity in under a minute. It's a natural sounding mic, is pretty sensitive (without being too sensitive, like picking up fleas breathing in the next room!) and feels to be solidly built. I first purchased a Blue Snowball USB mic, thinking it would do the job, but you can't compare the two. There is so much more natural gain in the Samson. The Blue needed a lot of post-processing to get the recordings to sound good, so I returned it in favor of the Samson. My voice is recorded with a full, clear sound, without any boominess. I quickly recorded my acoustic guitar, and that sounded pretty decent without any tweaking. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use and Solid Audio Quality Setup was very easy for this microphone. It is a simple plug & play use. I tested it with garageband on a mac computer and audacity on a windows computer. Both worked seamlessly. The audio recording quality was better than I expected for paying this price on a microphone. Vocal recording is very nice (singing/podcast type applications). Acoustic guitar recording sounded great. Acoustic guitar was about 8 feet away from the mic when testing it out. I imagine fine tuning my recording process will only make it sound better. I used the mic to record a band practice session. I just placed the mic in the center of the room and played around it. The mic worked surprisingly well to pick up the instruments (recorded in garageband). Obviously this technique is not going to sound amazing but it is better than I have recorded other times with a TASCAM device or other microphone into a computer. The overload led light is nice to visually show you when the microphone input volume is set too high. I have been typically running at 20-30% when testing up-close vocals. So it shows there is an input range to work with. The microphone base stand is a nice simplistic setup. It does limit the positioning of the microphone on there but I believe this is what is intended. The stand will not allow for a horizontal positioning of the mic. Since I do not need the feature and do not think the stand was intended to do that, I did not take away from the rating. I recommend this microphone for anyone looking to have a usb microphone as a step above the bottom line microphones but do not want to spend money in the $100-$150 range. I imagine it would compete with those in terms of audio quality. If you wanted anything better than this, I would say to think about spending over $150.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real microphone I needed a good microphone for recording voice tracks which I use for YouTube videos. There was a tiny bit of assembly, mounting it on its desktop stand. It has an insert for threading onto a tripod that can be installed if you need to use it that way. Plug in the USB cable, the green led glows,and you are ready. The C01U is a substantial, solid, well performing piece of gear and does what I need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly the best! I ordered the Samsom C01U after my AT2020 started giving me problems. I used the AT2020 for many quality years, but after listening to sound recordings on Youtube, the C01U seems to have a richer sound. I have been very happy with the sound quality it produced. It's truly the best mic I've used yet. And the quality of very good also.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality for reasonable price This microphone is good choise if you are looking for high quality but your budget is limited. There are plenty reviews with good feedbacks in the internet and everyone loves this mic. Well-known brand, noise reduction software and nice design for under 80 dollars!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very rich sound. I love it! I was looking for a mic that would give a nice rich sound to my voice. I produce TV commercials and radio spots for a living, so I need something that's really good. The Samson C01U doesn't disappoint! It picks up my voice and tone great!
