The Tascam MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42 Podcast Studio with One Senal SMH-1020CH Headset Kit from B&H provides you with the elements necessary to set up an easy-to use, one-person audio station for gaming or podcasting using a comfortable headset equipped with a gooseneck microphone.

The kit includes a MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42 tabletop podcast studio, one Senal SMH-1020CH dual-sided headset, and one 3.5mm TRRS to XLR 3-pin splitter cable.

The MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42 is designed to have first-time users creating a fully produced, professional-sounding podcast in minutes. It places easy-to-use controls at your fingertips with FX pads, reverb, and special voice FX.

The headset's flexible gooseneck mic stays in place in front of your mouth, so that your voice remains loud and clear even when you move your head—great for gaming or for podcasting at live events, in sports arenas, or other noisy environments.

The headphones feature a snug, around-the-ear, closed-back design that insulates them from distracting ambient noises. The padded ear cushions reduce fatigue during extended use or on long missions. With a computer, you're ready to start your single-person broadcast.

  • Senal SMH-1020CH Communication Headset (Dual-Sided)

    Designed for wired and wireless communications alike, the Senal SMH-1020CH is a dual-sided communications headset for use in TV or radio broadcast settings, as well as sports applications and behind-the-scenes theater environments. First, you'll notice its deep, padded ear cushions, which offer not only comfort, but isolation and noise-reduction in noisy scenarios. Behind the ear cushions, 40mm neodymium drivers give you a wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, as well as an expansive dynamic range.

    The microphone supplied with the SMH-1020CH is a cardioid dynamic capsule, designed to minimize pickup of off-axis sound while capturing your voice clearly and intelligibly. It sits upon a durable gooseneck that can be rotated 180°. This configuration can be used on the left or right side of the SMH-1020CH. Additionally, a switch is built into the gooseneck that automatically mutes the signal when it's swiveled into the vertical position; thus, to mute your microphone, all you have to do is flip the gooseneck into the upright position. 

    The SMH-1020CH interfaces with a variety of cables that offer compatibility with many major wired and wireless systems, such as Telex and PortaCom. You can also use this communication headset with broadcast consoles, mixers, and computers. Simply plug your separately-available, corresponding cable into the SMH-1020CH's twist-locking jack, and you're good to go. The headphones are also collapsible, making storage and transportation a cinch.

    Note: Please note, the SMH-1020CH does not ship with an output cable; for a list of compatible cables, please see our various kit configurations, or contact one of our specialists online, over the phone, or at our illustrious SuperStore.

    Passive Noise Reduction
    The SMH-1020CH offers a closed-back, over-the-ear design, which provides isolation in noisy environments; this allows you to hear what's coming over the headphones, such as cues from the director, instructions from the team leader, or coaching from the sidelines
    Precise Microphone Positioning
    The microphone is mounted on a durable gooseneck that swivels 180°; it can be used on the left or right side
    Detachable Twist-Locking Cable Design

  • Senal SMH-HM3X Cable for Senal SMH-Series Communication Headsets

    The Senal SMH-HM3X is a replacement cable intended for use with SMH-series communication headsets. It can also be used to augment your headset's versatility, giving you the ability to plug into a broadcast console or mixing board.

    At one end, you'll find the 3.5mm TRRS connector and corresponding locking jack. This twists into your SMH-1010CH or SMH-1020CH communication headset, establishing a secure and reliable connection all the while.

    At the other end, you'll note two different connectors. One is a 3.5mm phone-type plug, while the other is a male 3-pin XLR connector. These two connections allow you to monitor incoming signal while simultaneously using the microphone to communicate with your cast or crew. The SMH-HM3X is part of a whole ecosystem of SMH-series cables, all of which let you swap between the pin-outs of different communication and broadcast systems with ease.

    Compatible with Senal SMH-Series Headsets
    The SMH-HM3X fits perfectly into the twist-lock of your SMH-1010CH or SMH-1020CH, ensuring a secure connection to your headset.
    Compatible with Broadcast Consoles & Mixing Boards
    This cable terminates in two connection points—a 3.5mm male plug and a 3-pin male XLR connector. As such, this cable allows you to connect your SMH-series headset to a mixing board or broadcast console, giving you the ability to monitor incoming signals while communicating with a cast/crew.
