By PSW Staff • December 4, 2009 The new Samson Q2U Recording Pack, which also includes HP20 headphones Samson Technologies has announced the availability of the new Q2U Recording Pack with HP20 headphones. A dynamic handheld microphone, the Q2U features both an XLR output and a USB I/O allowing it to be plugged directly into a live sound console or any computer with a USB input. The microphone’s on/off switch controls the XLR output, allowing anyone to perform in a live setting and record to a nearby computer or laptop simultaneously. “Whether your passion is recording or performing, this mic has you covered,” says Mark Wilder, Director of Marketing for Samson Technologies. “It sounds great and is compatible with most computer based digital audio workstations, so your recordings can be developed with additional control. It may be the only mic you’ll ever need.” The Q2U also features a built-in 3.5mm stereo headphone jack output with volume control for no-latency monitoring during recording. In addition, a cardioid pickup pattern and a high-quality A/D converter with a 16-bit, 48 kHz sampling rate ensure the sound reproduction in both live and recording applications is clear, detailed and accurate. Available at major retailers and pro audio dealers for just $89, the Q2U includes USB and XLR cables, a mic clip, desktop stand, HP20 Headphones and Cakewalk Music Creator.
