Reviews around set (5.00 of 5)

  • The included Cakewalk software didn't work with Win7, so I have to use Audacity, but all in all, a good set of equipment for voice recording.
  • This USB microphone/headphone set are a fantastic starter set for the aspiring podcaster who wants to sound professional from the start
  • My youtube videos will certainly sound better, too (I'm a voice actor as well).I would definitely recommend this set to anyone who wants to record at a level that sounds better than a home recording.
  • This is a great set for those that are just starting to record
  • I like the set up, but this is the only thing that is crappy with this product.

Reviews around choice (5.00 of 5)

  • Great choice for travel, but buy a different desktop stand, a folding one if you're taking it on the road.
  • The Q2U is a good choice for someone on a budget, just starting out with audio recording or needs a higher quality mic only occasionally
  • This is a great choice if you're just starting out and are on a budget
  • I selected the Samson Q2U as an affordable choice for podcast interviews I was doing.

Reviews around thing (5.00 of 5)

  • Sam Ash charges double the price I purchase this for , great thing knowing you saved some money .
  • My favorite thing about this microphone is that it also doubles as a playback device.
  • For the price point, This thing is OUTSTANDING!!I found out about this mic from Podcastage on YouTube
  • Another great thing about this Samson - not to be mistaken with Samsung, is that you can not only plug it directly into the USB port, you can also plug it directly into the GOLD STANDARD XLR port - the standard mic port on mixing boards, or other like equipment

Reviews around tone (5.00 of 5)

  • For the value you get a solid set of headphones (well balanced, good tone, differentiates channels, and are comfortable), and a very stylish dynamic microphone that doesn't need phantom power - this is a solid set
  • A great multiuse mic for someone who doesn't have high-end needs but would like improved tone and clarity compared to cheap mics or built-in mics on your laptop or other device

Reviews around microphone (4.33 of 5)

  • The microphone works OK, but I don't appreciate paying for and expecting a new item and receiving a used item
  • This microphone is great for the price and competes with the snowball at the same price range
  • The microphone works perfectly, but the headphones were very uncomfortable.
  • but I didn't like the fact that I had to had to bring it so close to my mouth to get a high volume recording because that cause the microphone to pick the breathing noise and some popping sound
  • I am a music producer and needed a cheap microphone for auditions this works way better than I expected it too

Reviews around record (4.26 of 5)

  • I'm clear and loud and the interviewer gets a great podcast recording.
  • First let me say that the recording quality of this mic and the ease of use is the best I have found for the price
  • This also means you can use it to Karaoke or voice act and get a clean recording of your voice without other stuff bleeding in.
  • I leave it plugged in all the time and use the headphone port as a DAC.Having XLR is nice when recording a podcast on zoom h4 or equivalent.
  • It comes with a nice recording software for beginners who are interested in creating a podcast or creating music.

Reviews around work (4.16 of 5)

  • The microphone and earphone are working just fine, and when I saw that a mic pedestal came together, I got surprised
  • The mic works great and the sound is 90% as good as any Heil or other expensive mic--buy one of these first
  • I sing online Karaoke on singsnap and the mic works great
  • I dislike the headphones, although they sort of work
  • I wouldn't say it sounds like a $300-$400 mic, but it really sounds good, both on USB and XLR connections, and the direct monitoring (for USB only) works perfectly.

Reviews around headphone (2.29 of 5)

  • I take good care of these items and still the wiring is lacking in durability as well as the headphones capability to last more than a couple of months without losing hearing capability on both sides.
