Samson Q2U Recording & Podcasting Pack (Silver)

If you need one mic to handle anything from lead vocals on the stage to podcast recording without the cumbersome audio interface, the Samson Q2U will come in handy, doing so in an all-inclusive package at a cost-effective price. Styled in here in silver, the Q2U consists of a handheld dynamic microphone, a desktop tripod mic stand (with extension tube), a mic clip, a foam windscreen, a USB cable for digital recording, and an XLR cable for analog connections.

You probably see the potential: if you want to travel to the gig with your own microphone, the Q2U will let you do that, plugging into the house PA's XLR input without fuss. If you want to take the mic to a buddy's house for a conversational podcast, again, this is all possible with the Q2U. And finally, whenever you want to rant on your own a la Bill Burr or Mark Maron, setting up your podcast is as easy as plugging the mic into your computer over USB.

Fits Your Needs

The Q2U features both XLR and USB outputs that enable flexible digital recording to any Mac- or Windows-based computer workstation, while simultaneously connected to any analog mixer, preamplifier or PA system.

Handheld Form Factor

This solidly constructed mic is designed to be held in your hand, though it can also be mounted on a stand—such as the one included with the mic. Because of its design, the mic lends itself to comedy shows and comedy podcasts, though it'll work for just about any vocal-centric purpose.

Cardioid Polar Pattern for Stage & Home Use

The microphone makes use of a directional cardioid polar pattern to minimize off-axis sound. This polar pattern naturally, yet effectively tamps down room tone and focuses the audio capture on what's directly in front of the mic. That's why it's equally effective on the stage and in the home-studio.

Built-In 3.5mm Headphone Jack

The mic offers a headphone jack for monitoring. Just plug a pair of headphones into the Q2U's 3.5mm jack, and you'll be able to listen to your broadcast-quality audio in all its glory.

Easy-to-Use Controls, Minimal Powering Required

The mic offers a simple on/off switch for the XLR output. This acts as a mute, which can come in handy live. This switch has absolutely no bearing on powering the mic—in fact, as this is a dynamic microphone, it requires no power to run when used in the analog domain. When you're plugged into a digital device, such as a computer, the mic will draw power from the computer to operate the digital interface.

Broadcast-Quality Audio Capture

The mic records audio at 16-bit / 48 kHz, giving you the broadcast standard for media playback. It's also worth noting that it can simultaneously record digital audio over USB and route analog audio over its XLR connection, so you can effectively mirror its output if you so choose.

Driverless Setup

The Q2U requires absolutely no drivers to run out of the box. Just plug it in to your computer and you should be good to go.

Included Hardware

In addition to the mic, the Q2U includes a desktop tripod stand with extension tube, a mic clip, a foam windscreen, a USB cable, and an XLR mic cable, giving you almost everything you need to get started.

Polsen HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones

The HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen offer a solution for experiencing rich and natural sound when listening to music through a mobile device or monitoring a podcast on your computer. These headphones can also be used for DJ work, thanks to the swiveling earcups that let you monitor audio while keeping one ear free.

The HPC-A30-MK2's over-ear design isolates the sound and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions in loud environments, such as a club or on the go. The 10' cable also gives you the freedom to move around while working and terminates in a 1/8" TRS stereo plug, which is compatible with most mobile devices and computers. In addition, a stereo 1/4" adapter is included to plug into a stereo or mixing board.

Mobile

The HPC-A30-MK2 headphones deliver a rich sound for listening to audio on a mobile device. Whether you're listening on a smartphone, an iPod, or a tablet, these headphones deliver detailed sound even in noisy environments.

Over-Ear Design

The over-ear design isolates sound in loud environments and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions. This design is good for listening to music on a busy street, and for DJs who need to monitor their audio in a noisy club.

DJ Applications

The headphones are suitable for DJ applications and include a tuned bass response for low-end clarity. The pivoting earcups are ideal for one-ear or on-the-shoulder monitoring. A padded headband offers to keep you comfortable during a lengthy session.

Broadcast and Podcast

The headphones allow for monitoring audio on a laptop or in a home studio as well as recording a vlog on a smartphone.

Swiveling and Rotating Earcups

If you're a DJ who likes to keep one ear free, you can swivel one of the earcups for on-the-shoulder monitoring. The earcups also rotate 90° so you can turn one of the earcup outward for one-ear handheld monitoring.

10' Cable

A headphone cable that's too short is almost like sitting on the sidelines—you can't be part of the action. If you need to move around while you work, the 10' cable will allow you to move about freely.
