Suitable for podcasting, VO recording, and even VoIP conferencing, the Samson C01U Pro is a microphone that plugs directly into your computer over USB, forsaking the need for an audio interface, mic preamp, headphone amp, or any other similar kind of fancy audio equipment. With this silver microphone, you should have nearly everything you need to get started recording or streaming your voice in broadcast quality.

The mic works with Mac and Windows computers, and can even work with iOS devices if you have a separately-available adapter. You can monitor your audio without any latency straight from the mic's headphone jack, and you'll find the mic's highly directional pickup pattern quite useful in minimizing unwanted room noise. It ships with a desktop mic stand, a swivel mount, and a USB cable, so you can get started right away.

Connects to Computers and iOS Devices

Get started right away, as this mic works directly with your computer. No separate interface or preamp is required. As a bonus, the mic also works with iOS devices, provided you bring your own adapter to the party.

Supercardioid Polar Pattern for the Untreated Room

The microphone makes use of a highly directional supercardioid polar pattern to minimize off-axis sound. This polar pattern naturally, yet effectively tamps down room tone and focuses the audio capture on what's directly in front of the mic, so everyone can clearly hear your voice.

Headphone Monitoring & Easy-to-Use Controls

With its built-in 3.5mm jack, the mic allows you to monitor your audio right from the microphone itself without latency.

Broadcast-Quality Audio Capture

The mic records audio at sample rates and resolutions up to 16-bit / 48 kHz, giving you the broadcast standard for media playback.

Handy Hardware Included

With an included swivel mount, tripod stand, and USB cable, you can get up and running right away. Simply place the mic in the mount, attach the mount to the stand, and run the USB cable from mic into your computer.
