Samson Announces Q9U Professional Broadcast Dynamic Microphone

Samson has announced the Q9U Professional Broadcast Dynamic Microphone, a device that has both XLR and USB-C connections.

Samson said the microphone offers 24-bit/96kHz hi-definition audio resolution. “The Q9U is an effective solution for achieving professional studio-quality audio for broadcasting, podcasting and streaming,” Samson said.

The Samson Q9U has a cardioid polar pattern, a zero-latency headphone output, an integrated swivel yoke mount, a low cut filter, a mid-presence boost, a mute button and an integrated dual-layer windscreen.

The Q9U features a humbucking neodymium capsule. The company said it should give enough output to integrate into any professional setup you have without needing external gain devices.

The Samson Q9U will be out in the spring.
