All new for 2020, we have one of our favorite brand in Samson always coming out with at least one new model we love to have in the microphone game. Here we have a USB and dynamic microphone to be readily available for ‘broadcasting’, which can translate into useful for podcasters, streamers, gamers or really any desktop or computer types of recording alike. What’s first important here to note is that it is indeed both USB as well as XLR connective, so you can either do some plug-and-play like many other USB mics out there or use it in a traditional recording sense in a studio and hook it up to your microphone preamps or audio interfaces. Here are some details of the Samson Q9U dynamic microphone.
Our ears definitely perk up every time we hear the phrase ‘new USB microphone’, and when we were able to check out the Samson G-Track Pro USB at NAMM, we were extremely excited to get our hands busy. There are countless USB microphones in the market right now and that’s only going to increase with time, considering they’re growing in not only popularity but overall quality to help give us versatility in the plug-and-play microphone game. As we can see at first glance, this here G-Track Pro looks suspiciously like a very popular USB mic I’m sure you’re all aware of (the Yeti, if you weren’t). However, there hasn’t really been a direct competitor with not only size but functions, capabilities and of course, price-point. So let’s jump in.
Call us unaware, but this is the first time we’ve seen a wireless microphone that uses USB connectivity (at least worth looking at). One of our favorite brands over at Samson Tech has recently released this, so we wanted to give it a review to see exactly what it was about. The reason they call it ‘stage’ is because it’s a handheld microphone that can operate wirelessly up to 100 meters away. Although that’s awesome for performances, we still love this as a multi-use mic for studios, computers with gaming and pocasts, and more. Let’s analyze the specs of the Samson Stage X1U Microphone.
