The Q9U is a bit of an all-rounder. Podcasts; streaming; broadcasts; recording live; this industry standard dynamic microphone can do it all. It captures vocals in extreme detail, highlighting every nuance and little auditory element.
Crisp broadcast quality sound is provided thanks to a 24-bit/96kHz digital audio resolution. A wide dynamic range and broad frequency response means that both musical performances and the spoken word appear better than ever.
The mic also features a pair of versatile connectivity options in the form of a USB-C connection and an XLR analogue output. A built-in mute button can instantly silence the mic to both of these outputs. An onboard analogue to digital converter delivers crystal-clear recordings to your computer; you don’t even have to bother with annoying driver downloads. You’ll hear voices and their natural tones in real time as well thanks to zero-latency headphone monitoring.
Pro, or enthusiast?
Samson have designed a mic that’s suitable for both professionals and enthusiasts. No matter your setup or scenario, the Q9U will slot in with absolute ease. A dynamic capsule (boasting a neodymium magnet) ensures there’s a large amount of output to work with your interface or mixer. There’s no need for additional gain equipment either!
The onboard humbucking coil then works to minimise radio frequency and electromagnetic interference. It reduces any incoming hum from your other gear too. As a result, you’ve got a far cleaner uninterrupted signal.
This polar pattern guarantees that a vocal will remain the singular focus. It rejects any external sound coming in from the sides and lowers any ambient noise. The integrated air-pneumatic shock mount works in perfect harmony by separating the capsule itself from unwanted mechanical sounds. A dual-layer windscreen operates in place of a pop-filter; plosives and pops will not affect your audio here. Add the final touches using low-cut and mid presence boost controls.
