For Your Computer

This mic is perfect for recording directly to computers, be they mac or windows systems.

Large-Diaphragm Microphone for Warm, Rich Recordings

This large-diaphragm condenser microphone captures warm, rich recordings for speech, singing, and instruments.

Cardioid Polar Pattern for Home Use

The mic has a cardioid polar pattern to tamp down any extraneous room noise. This directional polar pattern is a great choice if you're working out of an untreated room.

Useful Controls

A pad control and high-pass filter will come in handy for turning the volume down, and cutting low-end rumble out of the resulting recording.

Simple to Set Up

Just mount the mic on the included stand, plug the mic into your computer's USB port with the included cable, select it as a device in your recording or VoIP software, and you're ready to get to work. The mic runs off your device's power, so no need to plug it into a wall.

The mic and camera are surprisingly good, the hub doesn't work and the headphones are uncomfortable and sound bad.

This mic caused static for Zoom meeting participants! Not just a little but very annoying. Had to switch it out. I purchased to use with Zoom. Returning!

Haven't used it much / Just checked to see if it works. Seems O.K. to record speaking. Picks up well from a distance.

CAD U37 USB Studio Recording Microphone

I purchase 3 of these microphones and attempted to get them to work on 3 different computers, one being a Mac. All the computer's failed to work with this microphone, one even loaded the microphone as an external speaker. This microphone is not for the computer novice as it takes more than my knowledge of computers to get this microphone to work as it is not plug and play friendly. I did expect a lot from this microphone for the price I paid for it, but it failed to deliver.

Sounds good... but...

Although the audio quality seems to be good for this price, there are two things that may cause me to return it. 1. There is a bright blue led on the front of the mike; it is a steady blue until you begin to use it, then it blinks... and blinks.. and blinks. Not in time to what you are actually saying - it just blinks. What an annoying feature! It is distracting, and after checking with C AD, there is not way to turn it off. And it is so bright... ! To even try using it I put a couple of stickers on.. yes, it needs a couple because it does shine through only one. Wow... and here's what it looks like. 2. The mount is awkward... maybe it's just me. And the tripod that comes with it... takes up a major amount of desk space. Yes, in some ways it's nit picky, but does affect how I use it, and having to make some adjustments so it's more livable.

Works great!

The CAD U37 worked just fine right out of the box. Hooked it up, fired up Zoom, played with the settings (there aren't many) and it worked perfectly. It is better than expected at isolating out background noise - on one call there was a pressure washer running outside and I ould certainly hear it, but no one on the Zoom call knoew it was there. Very happy with the performance.

The set up uses the computer software, like audacity, to record? The mic can record in .wav format?
Asked by: joyce
Hi Joyce, Yes you can use it with any audio recording software you prefer. The recording format would be determined by the software you use. I hope that helps!

question

The input is too loud, I have it on the lowest setting and it's still clipping even at a distance of more than a foot. The -10 decibels setting and Bass roll off are both on. Help?

How is your sound card set up? I am guessing that it is wide open and is resulting is excessive gain.
