Given the tests and chance to play in a professional environment, I was quite impressed with the C01U USB studio condenser microphone. As a desktop microphone it is definitely overkill, like using a Peterbilt to go grocery shopping.

Samson markets the C01U as the first affordable studio-quality condenser microphone with a USB interface. The first thing you notice is the weight of the microphone. It has a heavy gauge mesh grill protecting the diaphragm and has a real meaty, solid feel.

I have always had an interest in doing anything relating to radio however I have always been fairly amatuerish and used cheap $10-20 dollar microphones. In 2007, I decided that It was time to break into the bank a little bit and buy a more professional condensor mic.
