Ten Essential Audio Products for Working at Home
As more people are working from home, online communication is more vital than ever. Samson has plenty of audio solutions to boost your workflow and will help you sound like a pro from home.
If you’re working remotely, the first thing you probably want to consider for your home office is finding the right microphone. External USB microphones provide a dramatic difference in audio quality when compared to the microphone built into your computer or laptop. Built-in mics are often times unresponsive, buggy and can sound like you’re speaking in a wind tunnel – something you’d certainly wish to avoid in a professional environment.
Finding the right microphone doesn’t have to be hard. Samson USB microphones and USB wireless systems are simple to use, capture the full range of your voice with absolute clarity and have plenty of helpful features – so that you can teleconference with confidence.
All Samson USB microphones are plug-and-play compatible with Mac and Windows, so all you have to do is simply plug the mic in and your computer does the rest, no drivers and downloads required. Some USB mics are designed to work seamlessly with iOS devices and most smartphones.
Samson also offers desktop audio solutions such as studio monitors and headphones as well as microphone accessories such as boom arms and laptop stands that can make a big difference in optimizing your home office.
Go Mic - Portable USB Condenser Microphone
It’s easy to record with the Go Mic, its unique design allows it to be clipped right onto your laptop or placed unobtrusively on your desk, great for if you’re low on space . This little mic is big on sound and can capture frequencies from 20Hz-18kHz, a major upgrade compared to most built-in microphones. Additionally the mic has two selectable polar patterns: cardioid and omnidirectional. Cardioid is great for when the mic is placed in front of you and want it to focus on you, while the omni works well if you are moving around the room and want to be heard from all four corners.
Q2U - Recording and Podcasting Pack
The Q2U is a dynamic XLR/USB podcasting microphone that comes with everything you need to sound your best.

It also features a cardioid polar pattern that picks up sound coming from directly in front of the microphone, making you the main focus. The mic comes with a desktop stand, windscreen and everything you need to get set-up and start recording or conferencing.
