Samson Q9U

The Samson Q9U USB Dynamic Broadcast Microphone offers the perfect solution for producing high-quality podcasts, streams, and live recordings. Easily integrated into any professional or home recording setup; the Q9U features both an XLR analog output as well as a USB-C connection. Capturing 24-bit/96kHz hi-definition digital audio resolution; the Q9U captures the depth and detail of the voice to perfection.

Q9U – The Right Mic for Any Setup

Whether you’re a one-person show or building a multi-host production studio; the Q9U can be easily integrated into any setup. Featuring a modern dynamic capsule with a neodymium magnet, the Q9U provides plenty of output to work with any mixer or audio interface. All without the need for an external gain device. Thanks to its wide frequency response and large dynamic range, the Q9U captures the nuance and natural sound of speech and music performances. While an advanced humbucking coil reduces the pickup of electromagnetic (EMI) and radio-frequency interference. As well as limiting hum from other equipment.

High-Definition Digital Sound

What’s more, the Q9U features a 24bit/96kHz analog to digital converter for vibrant high-definition digital recordings directly to your Mac or Windows computer. The Q9U also includes zero-latency headphone monitoring which allows you to hear your voice in real-time. While an onboard mute switch quickly silences the microphone to both the XLR and USB outputs.

Built from the inside out

Finally, a cardioid polar pattern in the Q9U keeps your voice front and center. Offering excellent off-axis rejection while minimizing ambient pickup. An internal pneumatic shock mount isolates the capsule from mechanical noise while a dual-layer windscreen minimizes popping and plosives for a crisp and professional-sounding broadcast. You’ve even got low-cut and mid-presence boost controls give you even more sound tailoring options.

Please note, Q9U USB Microphone does not come with Mic Stand or Boom arm
