The Polsen PR-65 Portable Podcasting Kit from B&H is designed to provide a mobile and efficient setup for recording podcasts, tutorials, and interviews in project studios, personal spaces, or mobile rigs. Simply connect your computer and you’re ready to roll with recording and monitoring capabilities. The kit includes a Polsen PCR-65 condenser microphone, Polsen XLR-USB-48 audio interface, Polsen HPC-A30 studio headphones, and Pearstone 10’ XLR cable.
The Polsen PCR-65 large-diaphragm cardioid condenser mic delivers a 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response and a high maximum SPL. Connect it via the supplied 10’ XLR mic cable to the Polsen XLR-to-USB audio interface, which provides audio routing to and from your DAW at up to 48 kHz.
Mount the vibration-minimizing shockmount to the desktop tripod stand for convenient placement on your work surface. The Polsen HPC-A30 studio headphones feature a closed-back design for enhanced sound isolation and connect directly to the XLR-USB-48 audio interface.
The PCR-65 from Polsen is a cardioid condenser microphone designed for full-range reproduction of vocals and instruments in podcasts, recording studios, and broadcast environments. Its side-address, pressure-gradient design utilizes a large 1" diaphragm with a cardioid polar pattern, which minimizes the pickup of off-axis sounds and impedes feedback. The microphone boasts a 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, allowing it to accurately transduce the frequencies of a variety of sounds. Its high sensitivity and 125 dB maximum SPL ensure that you can use it on quiet or loud sources, from whispered vocals to pounding drums.
The PCR-65 has a sturdy, metal housing with an alloy finish. The supplied custom shockmount decouples the mic from vibrations and rumble that would otherwise transfer from the floor to the mic. Use the desktop tripod stand for convenient tabletop placement during interviews and podcasts. Phantom power (12 to 52 VDC) is required.
The Polsen XLR-USB-48 is a compact and easy-to-use XLR to USB interface that allows users to connect an XLR microphone directly to a computer via the USB port. It’s an ideal tool for singer/songwriters, podcasters, or musicians who need a simple yet high-quality solution for recording with an XLR microphone directly to a laptop or desktop computer.
Connecting the adapter to an XLR microphone and to your computer’s USB port is all that’s needed to start recording. Due to the plug-and-play capability, no drivers are needed and the computer will instantly recognize the adapter, allowing for quick and easy setup. The adapter features selectable phantom power for condenser microphones, and the 3.5mm headphone output allows for input monitoring and playback.
Polsen’s XLR-USB-48 is an all-in-one adapter that allows the musician or podcaster to set up quickly and record high-quality audio easily and affordably.
The HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen offer a solution for experiencing rich and natural sound when listening to music through a mobile device or monitoring a podcast on your computer. These headphones can also be used for DJ work, thanks to the swiveling earcups that let you monitor audio while keeping one ear free.
The HPC-A30-MK2's over-ear design isolates the sound and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions in loud environments, such as a club or on the go. The 10' cable also gives you the freedom to move around while working and terminates in a 1/8" TRS stereo plug, which is compatible with most mobile devices and computers. In addition, a stereo 1/4" adapter is included to plug into a stereo or mixing board.
The Pearstone PM Series XLR M to XLR F Professional Microphone Cable (10') features 24-gauge oxygen-free copper conductors, spiral shielding to protect against EMI and RFI noise, and professional grade cast-zinc Rean connectors with silver-plated contacts. The twin conductive PVC shield reduces electrostatic noise, and distinguishes the PM series from the rest of its class.
