The Zoom H4n wasn’t the only product Samson launched at CES. The company was also showing off the new Samson Q2U USB dynamic microphone, which works as a multi-purpose mic.
You can plug it into your computer via a USB cable to record voice tracks straight to your hard drive or make VoIP calls. Or you can use an XLR cable to connect the mic to a portable audio recorder, PA system, or just about anything else that takes an XLR input..
You can even use the XLR and USB outputs simultaneously, which means you can plug the mic into a PA system and your computer at the same time and make a recording of your performance in real time. The mic also has a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack so you can monitor your recordings or performance without any latency. The mic has an A/D converter with a 16-bit, 48KHz sampling rate.
I’ve embedded the official press release and spec sheet below.
