The CAD E50 Equitek Large-Diaphragm Microphone with CX2 Connect II Interface & Desktop Recording Value Kit from B&H bundles together all the necessary elements needed for desktop recording and podcasting at a substantial savings; all you need to add is a Mac or Windows computer. In addition to the E50 mic and CX2 II interface, the kit adds a desktop stand with reflection filter, an XLR cable, and a pair of closed-back headphones for monitoring.
Get yourself a great vocal sound with the Equitek Series E50 Microphone from CAD, a large-diaphragm condenser mic designed for studio and home studio applications. Whether you're recording podcasts, voice overs, or sung vocals, this high-sensitivity, low-noise mic will deliver a true-to-life sound.
The mic's high sensitivity ensures the nuances of your performances will be captured. The cardioid polar pattern focuses on what's directly in front of the capsule, leaving the rear of the mic unheard and minimizing room-tone pickup in the process. The mic comes with its own shockmount.
Producers, musicians, and podcasters can record at home or on the go with the CAD CX2 Connect II, a portable 2x2 USB Type-C audio interface that combines quality sound with operational simplicity and a robust all-metal body. The two preamps with combo XLR-1/4" mic/instrument inputs enable you to record either two microphones or a combination of microphone and instrument, perfect for the singer/songwriter or a vocalist with an accompanying instrumentalist.
The CX2 Connect II lets you record at professional 24-bit / 96 kHz resolution. It offers 48V phantom power for use with studio condenser microphones and is fully USB bus-powered—no external power source required. A volume knob controls the level of the left and right 1/4" line outputs. There is also a headphone out with volume knob to monitor yourself while performing. For complete recording freedom, the interface is compatible with almost any recording software on Windows or Mac laptop or desktop computers.

Designed to be an all-in-one solution for desktop recording where isolation is needed, the RFDT-128 Desktop Reflection Filter and Mic Stand from Auray features high-density acoustic foam and a perforated aluminum screen that absorb and block room noise and reflections that can commonly occur in acoustically untreated rooms. When recording in an untreated acoustic environment, vocals that reflect off of the walls and ceiling can be picked up by the microphone. These reflections can interfere with the sound of the voice and create a distant and "roomy" effect. By absorbing and diffusing these reflections, the RFDT-128 creates a closer and drier sound truer to your voice, making it easier to work with during the mixing process, and is more desirable for broadcasts, podcasts, voiceover, and desktop recording applications.
An aluminum and acoustic-foam base provide additional noise protection by isolating the filter and your microphone against vibrations from your desk or table. The filter sits on a telescoping shaft that can be adjusted from 7 to 12" of height, for flexibility in mic positioning. Not limited to desktop applications, the RFDT-128's shield can be attached to a broadcast arm with the included mounting hardware. Its threaded mount is compatible with 5/8"-27 mic clips and shockmounts.
The Kopul Studio Elite 4000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (10') is a studio-quality cable for connecting mics to mixers, preamps, audio interfaces and recorders; or to be used in any other application where XLR connectivity is required. The cable is engineered to be both quiet and durable, and is well-suited for critical recording and broadcast situations.
Studio Elite 4000 Series cables are made from 24 AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. A 98% braided outer shield makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrix XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.
Updated with a brand new look, the Shure SRH440A closed-back, over-ear studio headphones provide high-quality audio reproduction and effective noise isolation for home recording, studio monitoring, and DJ mixing. Lightweight and sturdy, the headphones can also fold down for easy storage and transportation in the included carrying bag.
The SRH440A have large 40mm drivers that deliver clear, detailed audio with a wide frequency response of 10 Hz to 22 kHz. The closed-back, circumaural design helps reduce ambient noise, and the thick replaceable earpads yield long-lasting comfort. The headband is adjustable and generously cushioned to ensure a pleasing fit on a range of head sizes.
The coiled, single-sided cable allows a variable amount of slack, resists tangles, and can be detached for easy replacement. It has a bayonet clip to keep it securely attached to the earcup. The gold-plated 3.5mm TRS mini plug and 1/4" adapter enable compatibility with MP3 players and mobile devices as well as DJ mixers and audio interfaces.
