I purchased this mic to record quot;voice-overquot; for an e-learning program. I had tried regular microphones (e.g. webcam, chat etc.). Those mics are good for casual use such as voice chat. However, I needed a better quality one. This Samson mic is a condenser mic with an exceptional quality.

I use this mic to record the sound portion of professional counseling sessions. The quality of output is loud and clear. I particularly like the 3 choices of directionality for this mic. Highly recommended.

I use the product in a school setting. It's nice b/c it finds and install appropriate drivers for Windows 7 automatically w/o needing admin privileges (plug and wait a little bit and play). It's drivers don't take over your sound card like some other USB mics I've used and it works well on Macs too.

The microphone is extremely easy to set up. Thanks to its USB interface, it is plug and play; all that I had to do was plug it in. Of course, I could imagine that you'd have some trouble connecting it to a mixer board (because it uses USB). The audio quality is superb.

The nice thing about this mic is that it picks up clear audio. The DBi switch is good to have because sometimes too much audio is picked up sometimes if the environment is too loud.

After using some cheap desktop microphones and more headsets than I can remember, I finally bit the bullet and got a real quality microphone. I settled on this guy, the Samson C03U. I was blown away by how much more easily the microphone picked up my voice clearly.

Great mic! This thing is HEAVY!! Sound is excellent, and I love being able to change from Cartoid to Omni makes it extremely flexible and useful. Got it with a shock mount, which it needs.

I bought this, because I wanted to do some recording for songs. I like it, build strong and good quality.

This is a great microphone. easy to install plug and play all you have to do is go into your sounds and under recording devices adjust your volume and start recording. i don't use the software it came with as i have a much easier software than the sonar.
