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.

      Comments about Samson C01U Pro USB Studio Condenser Microphone:

      This is the new and improved C01U USB condensor recording microphone from Samson. All the qualities we know and love from the original C01U, but with the added headphone jack feature which allows the user a zero-latency signal for monitoring their sound. The USB cable allows for simple connection to any computer for on-the-go recording. Under $100...you cant beat it!

        Comments about Samson C01U Pro USB Studio Condenser Microphone:

        This is a great mic for the money! It records smooth and flat allowing more creative control during production. The headphone jack on the mic is a really great feature for listening to real time recording. My suggestion would be to purchase a longer USB cord if the person being recorded is going to be more than a couple feet away for the computer.

                  This is a fabulous microphone. It connects easily to MACs and PCs. It comes with a tripod. The sound is great. The peak level indicator is highly useful. This mic is great for the travelling pro and the first time home recording studio alike. It will improve SKYPE and Podcast quality. For under $100 it is an amazing value!

                        Good for broadcasting or creating rough demos. I'd say stick to vocals, that's where it performs best. Great that they provided a tripod stand, but a windscreen or pop filter would've been nice too. At under $90, it's makes a great present and an inexpensive way to sketch down those rough music ideas you have in your head. Staff reviewer @ Sam Ash
