Review of the Samson Go Portable Podcast Microphone

CLICK HERE TO BUY SHIPS WORLDWIDE

I purchased the Go Mic samson for voiceover recordings, commentary for gameplay videos and expressive readings. For the price that has recorded sound quality is impressive. The clip with input for the screw (rods or clips) as well as the spring is very convenient.

It has 3 recording modes: direct, omnidirectional and -10 dB to attenuate the noise.

The microphone has a small and light case.

The box is big enough, I expected a product of other dimensions. It’s very small !!!! connected to the mac (Yosemite) and recognized on the fly, immediately made a screen recording test with quick time and proven the difference with the Logitech HD C525 webcam, it is like switching from a panda 30 to an Audi A6. wonderful voice (despite my heavy Genoese cadence) does not require audio production (for what I need, if you record an instrument or sing it is another matter).

I did not read the manual (I did not have the time) but I noticed that the green LED turns red when it is clipped, which is very convenient;)

Last but not least, I do not know how Winzoz works, but it is absolutely not true that connecting to the Mac becomes the main sound card and you have to attach the speakers to the mic: just go to System Preferences and select the correct output to continue listen through the speakers connected to the headphone output of the Mac;) (I enclose screenshots to show where to put your hands).

In short, a product of excellent construction, beautiful solid, provided with a nice long USB cable and practical case: for what I need (record the screen to make tutorials) goes beyond perfection;)

After a thousand calculations, I bought this microphone and I must say that the final choice I got it right in full. I recommend it without any doubt.
POSITIVE:
1) Brand of great quality
2) Very small size and weight (it is in the palm of my hand, which is already small of its own), therefore portable and not only table
3) Three different settings of audio directionality, therefore not it’s just omnidirectional, but you can exclude the back of the microphone practically, or not.
4) What for me is fundamental: It is compatible with iPhone and smartphone, that is if I wanted, I buy an adapter and connect it directly to the phone without the need for external power supply via hub (which serves other microphones)
5) The clamp acts as a microphone case when it is closed, but also has feet underneath and acts as a support base for the microphone when you want to use it by placing it on the table, but also the same clamp is used to position the microphone above the video of your laptop. How to say: designed very well.
6) Excellent sound, without background noise. Driver that installs very well automatically and without having given the slightest problem.
7) Long USB cable and not as often happens … supercorto. This allows you to connect it without problems to a PC tower, to understand, and not just a laptop.
8) The supplied zippered case is strabella (see photo)
9) Impeccable packaging, ditto instructions (English only).
10) Possibility to connect the headphones to the microphone (the only thing I have not tried and that at the moment I do not need).
11) Good value for money when compared to microphones that cost 4 or 5 times as much, without offering 4 or 5 times the quality of this.
NEGATIVE:
Nothing at all!

The Rise of Home Speakers with Built In Radio 4.0 Compatibility (Google Home, Apple HomePod)

A new search for Adobe Analytics offers further revelations on smart speakers. The analysis showed an increase in the number of users: to date, in fact, 43 million Americans have already bought at least one smart speaker. This figure is the result of the increase in the last few months, but this time no major new events have been presented to those already analyzed on NL.

If sales have increased without any significant commercial event, such as black friday or the purchase of Christmas gifts, it means that these numbers are destined to grow. The survey also focused on this: in fact, out of the total number of users examined, about half (45%) already owns a smart speaker and expressed a willingness to buy another one during the festivities of 25 December, while the 23% said they wanted to buy one to give as gifts.

It is not a hidden fact that most smart speaker owners would like to own another one, but the researchers also wanted to investigate the uses that users make of them. The most common activity is always the reproduction of audio of all kinds – both from the Spotify player and from radio stations (as you can also do through the FM World application and other aggregators ), which on podcasts of all kinds – followed by constant updates on the weather.

The weather forecast, in fact, together with the news from the world and concerning traffic, are the most common requests in the time slot from 5 to 9 am – if you put yourself on the side of the users – that translate into the most executed command from the side of the smart speaker. In addition, they are increasing – always taking into consideration the sample being researched and thanks to the simplification of daily activities – those related to shopping: from ordering food to the home, looking for hotels to spend the holidays, until the addition of items to shopping lists on online platforms such as Amazon, Aliexpress and Zalando, already on smart devices.

The forecast of Adobe Analytics on the increase in sales during the Christmas period could, therefore, prove to be spot on.

Product quality excellent price. Unfortunately the transformer arrived broken, but after contacting the seller and have clarified what model was seen that it is a dedicated power supply and the mixer is kindly professionally is busy sending me a new and working without any additional cost.

I use the mixer at home for small jobs and I found it comfortable and versatile of course nn for semi-professional or professional use.

But who uses them knows that prices for equipment of this kind are much higher.

However, I am personally satisfied with the product and even more of the professionalism of the seller.

For home use I highly recommend it as comfortable and easy to use x who knows these products well

Question: Does it have the effects?
Answer: No, but it is very versatile and with good tone

Question: But how many microphones can you insert?
Answer: 12 MIC but then you do not have the INPUTS line … you have to use THOSE you need up to 12 regular TU or MIC or line

Question: Excuse me but the line inputs are stereo. Can I connect, for example, a CD player with an R and L channel?
Answer: I connected the laptop with an audio cable, plug from 3.5 to pc and 6.5 to the mixer in one input and then send the music in the speakers connect to the mixer, always with the ability to change the sound with the mixer, Hello

Question: can I connect it to passive speakers?
Answer: NO, you need an amplifier!

Question: Can I connect a numark party mix console?
Answer: Hello, without problems you can use two normal channels or the red white output

Question: Hi how many microphones can I connect? Can I connect the amplifier and the electric battery as well?
Answer: you have 6 mic inputs, so you can share them indifferently with inputs of different origin but only as inputs, you will need to connect an amplifier to the output of the mixer.

Question: Can I use it as a controller to drive software such as cubase, music studio, etc.?
Answer: then I advise you not to drive what you say because it is already the mixer that has many functions, like echo, repetition etc .. because I already had problems, with the active speakers that have echo, preamplification, you create the triggers, return sound, you can connect a PC, a smartphone, to send the basics, but if you put other devices that have effects already of them, conflicts are created, however, to make good music evenings, my son plays with his band I set the sounds, as price and quality and ok … hello good music displays fewer items

First Hand Experience of the Rode Podcaster USB Dynamic Microphone

The quality of the Rode Podcaster USB Dynamic Microphone is perfect and above all the automatic windows configuration works great (I use win 10 and I did not need to install any driver).

Buy Rode Podcaster USB Dynamic Microphone
Buy Rode Podcaster USB Dynamic Microphone

Be careful because in the package there is almost nothing, only the USB cable and a ring hook.

You will also need to buy a pole or a desk tripod because the microphone is very heavy.

The monitor headphone jack already inside the microphone is also very comfortable.
Precise that before buying this I tried 9 microphones and this no doubt beats them all.

This Rode Podcaster USB Dynamic Microphone exceeded my expectations!

It has a high quality internal sound card.

It is equipped with a headphone jack to listen to the recording and to listen to the recording again.

It is automatically recognized without installing the proprietary drivers (at least in the Mac)

Definitely professional audio quality!

Highly recommended for those who record without mixing directly from a computer!

I’ve been podcasting on and off since 2005, and I’ve had various mics. I’ve even had an Electro-Voice RE20, and all the more as of late, an Electro-Voice RE320. I like this Rode Podcaster USB Dynamic Microphone better.

RE320. It is so natural to get sound out of this mic, and to get the fluffiness and scratchy sibilance. It’s simply dead quiet when I’m not talking, and when I’m talking, it’s spotless and clear. I endeavored to get a perfect and ground-breaking interface, yet it was not occurring for me, and I attempted two distinctive preamps/blenders and Shure X2U too. Without a doubt, I don’t have a huge number of dollars on great hardware.

It’s simply perfect and clear and sounds incredible. Sounded far and away superior on Skype digital recording. Rode Podcaster USB Dynamic Microphone sounded extraordinary. With my past mic, regardless of whether I have sounded in my own accounts.

On the Mac, you should wrench the info volume for this mic up a lot. I have mine set to 83%, and it sounds calm on recording before placing it into Logic with my EQ and pick up settings. More on others when I joined other individuals on GCs or Skype.

In case you’re a podcaster, you could purchase a bundle of gear. In any case, you don’t. Except if you’re running at a blender, and you needn’t bother with a Heil PR 40. You require is this one mic, and ideally the blast arm and the shockmount. You’ll not think twice about getting this Rode Podcaster USB Dynamic Microphone.

Review of Behringer XENYX 802 Audio Mixer for DJ

I do not think you can find such well-made mixers and with all the features of this Behringer XENYX 802 Audio Mixer for the same price.

On the contrary: I can not explain how Behringer can sell a product so good at this price range!

Also we see that the company is serious from the fact that they replaced the old very strong blue LED, with a softer and orange one.

Some have commented that it has the defect of not having a power button, and it is true, but I remind everyone that this Behringer XENYX 802 Audio Mixer has 8 channels (8 !!) with outputs for external effects (which I tested and work fine) individually adjustable for each channel.

The preamplifier of the microphone channels is then unexceptionable and very useful if you use cheap microphones like me.

The thing that worries me is that is heats a lot below. LAST THING, the packaging of the product came with dents and this worried me a lot, because if the content had been damaged, I would have been very disappointed. Tips for Sellers: If you see that the original box is damaged check the contents inside before selling it.

I use the Behringer XENYX 802 Audio Mixer to connect computers, turntables, CDs and microphones to amplified speakers: it’s exactly what I was looking for.

The background noise is low, the microphone preamps sound good, the use of the knobs instead of the sliders reduces the external dimensions and I do very well. Everything sounds good (for the price paid).

The only quirk that I found of the Behringer XENYX 802 Audio Mixer is the slow power off of the phantom power: The LED turns off after 5/6 min from the pressure of the button (?) However, I do not have mic that go to phantom, so it’s not a problem.

The holes of the jacks are facing upwards and tend to collect dust: I recommend covering it when not in use

Given the price, I was thinking of something lower level: instead this Behringer XENYX 802 Audio Mixer does his duty with dignity. Well Behringer

PRO:
Decent preamps Mic Decent
eq filters
Reduced size
Great price

VS:
No power off
phantom power slow off

Behringer XENYX 802 Audio Mixer is a very compact but very nice mixer. Very good price quality !!!! Great! Great! Great! Great!
We strongly recommend it! Ok!

The only tangible defect, the power supply emits a continuous buzz. Despite this does not affect the quality of the power supply that, indeed, has been discreet, the defect is annoying if you keep the product connected to the current during the night.

Behringer XENYX 802 Audio Mixer works, for what it costs to be considered a good product. As read in other reviews has the neo not to have the on / off button but it is a problem just enough to have a power strip with switch and I problem is solved another problem always relative is the main output to jack and not to Canon that is definitely better also in terms of cable life. Anyway I recommend the Behringer XENYX 802 Audio Mixer.

Review of the Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless Headphones, Radio Broadcast Gear

Shop for Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless Headphone click here

Yup I did use a wireless for on air monitoring and at the production studio. And here are my thoughts for the Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless Headphones.

After trying many different headphones, I think the Sennheisers are the best, or better, those that are closer to my taste in terms of playing music.

Previously I had Momentums (with cable) and I wanted to upgrade, I do not regret it at all.

I have had the opportunity to try extensively also the BOSE QC 35 II and other high-end Bose, I must say that I prefer the Sennheiser because they reproduce the sound “less fake” way.

The bluetooth is easily coupled.

As ergonomics are perfect and I can take them even 3 hours without feeling any pressure or problem, even when I have glasses.

I must say that the sound quality is excellent in the Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless Headphones, it does not fear comparisons.

The fit of the headphones is extremely good, especially in the wireless version, you can go wherever you want without thinking about the cable.

Right now I’m connected to a MacBook Pro and an iPhone 7 at the same time, and I’m playing music from my Mac.

When an incoming call comes in, they switch seamlessly from one device to another.

For calls I have to say that I removed a star because the communication is not very clear, not exactly what you have directly from the phone.

I tried with more calls to switch from Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless Headphones to the phone and communication with the phone is definitely better.

Mind you, very good even from headphones but better from the phone. As for portability, headphones are still a little over 250g so in the long run, after an hour that you wear them, you hear them.

To me, that I have big enough ears, they dress very well and they cover very well all the auricle.

Basically, excellent design, materials and sound.

Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless Headphones are well finished, the skin on the earphones are topnotch.

The sound is amazing, I was struck by the sound when I see a thread full of special effects: same feeling when I go to the cinema.

My only gripe is the fact that after 2 hours of use the headband and the earphones bother me, the ears also feel a bit ‘wet / hot.

Good portability but perhaps not as ideal as the Bose QuietComfort 35, which are easier from that point of view. I would recommend Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless Headphones for those who want a headset with a sound and fine finishes.
