Inspired by the meticulous demands of studio engineers and record producers, Samson's C01U Pro USB Studio Condenser Microphone brings professional-quality recording to the realm of your desktop and project studio.

As the second act to the world’s first USB microphone, the C01U, the CO1U Pro adds a headphone output for zero latency-monitoring and an improved signal-to-noise ratio to ensure the natural warmth and detail of vocal and instrumental performances are captured in your recordings.

The C01U Pro is the ideal solution for musicians, producers, broadcasters, as well as recording audio for YouTube videos, voiceovers and podcasts. A large, 19mm diaphragm captures all the nuances of your voice, making the C01U PRO ideal for hip-hop/rap artists, singer-songwriters and ADR (automated dialogue replacement) work with video editing suites. In addition, the mic element is shock-mounted within a solid die-cast metal construction to minimize unwanted handling noise/vibrations on your recordings.

Capturing audio at a 16-bit 44.1/48 kHz resolution with a smooth, flat frequency response of 20Hz–20kHz, the C01U Pro ensures the authentic projection of both high and low frequencies to your favorite DAW or recording app.

In addition, Samson maintains its longstanding commitment to user convenience with plug-and-play operation (no driver installation necessary), USB power via Mac, PC or iPad (cable included), as well as an included tripod stand and swivel mount for optimal desktop placement. CO1U Pro is even compatible with iPads and iPhones (4S and later) using Apple's Lightning USB Camera Adapter or Camera Connection Kit (30-pin) for those seeking to achieve pro-level sound on-the-go.

Includes tripod stand, swivel mount and USB cable.

    It doesn't get much simpler than this microphone! The USB goes directly into your computer and works immediately with any DAW! The response is great for the price and for he size! This microphone would be great for podcasts or someone just getting into home recording!

      Comments about Samson C01U Pro USB Studio Condenser Microphone:

      Whether you're just starting out or if you're looking for a cost-effective USB mic, this is an excellent choice. It provides a nice and even response across the frequency range (20Hz-20kHz) and is very easy to set up in any DAW. With the USB connection, you don't even need an audio interface. The body is all metal, making it very durable. And with the included stand and USB cable, you can be up and running in minutes of opening the box for your vocal recording, Skyping, or many other applications.

        I've worked with many different USB Microphones over the years, mostly with OSX computers, but this one stands out in the pack. As if the easy set-up wasn't enough for this price, the quality is superlative! This would be great for podcasting or any other voice based communication.

        Needed a mic for the classroom.

              Comments about Samson C01U Pro USB Studio Condenser Microphone:

              I've been recording in professional studios for the past 40 years, and I've never know how all that stuff is hooked up, but this chingus, I can do. You just plug the microphone right into the computer, and boop, boop, boop, it does everything else. Your headphones even plug into the same mic, and now you're ready to record. Genius.

                                  This is a great way to get introduced to the world of recording. If you're doing EDM, pop, hip hop, or a whole host of other genres, this is really all you need to make a complete recording with vocals. That and a computer of any kind, that is. I highly recommend it to anyone who's thinking about getting into recording.
