This high-output mic faithfully captures a wide dynamic range with exceptional mid-range clarity. Its supercardioid pickup pattern provides maximum gain before feedback, while an updated body design and pneumatic capsule shockmount minimize handling noise.

Why So Superior?
The Q8x's superior reproduction stems from the linear frequency response of its neodymium dynamic mic element. The response is flat with a slight lift around 8kHz. This makes fitting vocals in live mixes extremely easy with minimal EQ adjustments. The mic also features a supercardioid pickup pattern with excellent off-axis rejection. This enables the Q8x to pick up all the nuances of any performance with maximum volume and clarity, while reducing feedback and unwanted signals not originating in front of the mic. In addition, a high-saturation level audio transformer further rejects hum and noise.

Not Just for Vocals
The Q8X is not just a great live vocal mic. It's an extremely versatile tool in the studio, perfect for numerous recording applications. As the Q8x is equipped to withstand high sound pressure levels up to 150dB SPL, it allows vocals to sound huge and crystal clear, but can also handle close micing instruments such as piercing snare drums, screaming guitar cabinets and much more.

New and Improved
With a rugged die-cast body and hardened steel grille, along with an improved pneumatic capsule shockmount for minimizing handling noise, the Q8x provides reliable performance in even the most demanding environments.

It's a good microphone.


I love the feel of the microphone. I use it for my podcast at my Studio. I most say I don't have a sound treated Studio and it sounds great.



Fantastic service and Product


Excellent microphone. And the costumer service was just fantastic



I would buy this again.


We wanted to add a Mic to our PA for "Guest Singers" that sounded good. This seems to fit the "Bill". Seems to sound better than our SM58.



Great Bang For Buck!


The Samson Q8x is a monster microphone by Samson. It really gives you a great clarity level when it comes to vocals. This particular microphone can be used within a live setting, you can use it for studio vocals, as well as using the microphone to pick up instruments. The quality and durability are another great attribute for this mic as well. Its definitely a great pick up for any studio on any level.






I purchased this mic because I needed a sensitive/hot mic that could handle backing vocals for a drummer. Well, I have experienced zero feed back and the mic helps me deliver crystal clear harmonies with basically no EQ . It also rejects bleed over from my surrounding cymbals and drums. I've owned 58s and they are great. However, I rate this mic higher because it's a little more sensitive. Also, this thing is heavy and should survive for a long time. Incredible mic !

A truly DYNAMIC mic!


Samson products continue to please me with their reliability, quality, and price. This microphone continues on with that. Really clear mic for vocals or anything you need to mic. A goop price and a work horse that is built well to take from gig to gig.




Hard to compete with the Samson Q8X


If you are looking for an affordable and versatile dynamic microphone to add to your collection, then the Samson Q8X is a great choice compared to others in this price category. The Neodymium mic element provides a wide dynamic range, coupled with the shock mounted capsule, this mic is ready for use live or in the studio.

Great stage mic!


I've been a huge fan of the Samson Q7 and Q8s for years, having several in my gear arsenal. The updated Q8x is fantastic update to the series. Very rich and smooth frequency response that I didn't think could get better from the previous version. Very durable build quality, and am excellent mic for live due to its stellar feedback rejection.

Good mic!


Samson provides a really great quality microphone with excellent response for vocals. This microphone is almost as great quality as the Shure Beta 58's at a price that you really can't beat. The Neodymium dynamic mic element provides a wide range and has great mid-range! Very nice high quality mic, great addition to any arsenal of mics and great for a small venue or practice space.
