Perfect for podcasters, Twitch-streamers, and other people who use their voice in a home studio, the Apogee Electronics MiC Plus USB Cardioid Condenser Microphone Kit has been bundled together by B&H for your convenience. It gives you four useful pieces of gear for your home-broadcasting goals.
The first is the MiC Plus, a USB cardioid microphone with a 3.5mm headphone jack and zero-latency monitoring. It gives a panoply of powerful controls to the user, and comes with a variety of cables to connect to Mac, Windows, or mobile devices.
Good thing it has a headphone jack, because this kit will also give you a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50x closed-back headphones, which are excellent for monitoring your vocals. When you're done with the headphones, store them in the included case. Also, store the microphone in the included MiC Plus Carrying Case.
Apogee Electronics MiC Plus USB Cardioid Condenser Microphone
Professional podcasters, singers, and voice-over artists take note: the Apogee MiC Plus is a studio-quality microphone in a USB form factor for your podcasts, one that can deliver a record-ready sound in minutes, even if you don't know much about room treatment or mic technique. The mic sports converters and preamps from Apogee—a company famed for their analog-to-digital technology—, and is designed to work with Mac, Windows, or iOS devices.
If you're looking for a no-fuss setup as well as a mic that can handle searingly loud sounds without distortion, the MiC Plus will deliver, as its jam-packed with features to elevate the sound quality. The mic's cardioid polar pattern is the perfect, most natural tool for capturing a clean sound: it minimizes room reflections, and focuses audio capture onto whatever's in front of the capsule. Easy-to-use controls let you adjust the levels or mute with the press of a button. Extra touches, such as a tabletop tripod stand, mic stand adapter clip, a USB cable, and a Lightning cable, make recording even easier right out of the box.
