Need a simple solution to get your microphone 'into' your computer? Shure X2u has got it sorted. Designed for home studios, but especially well-suited for on-the-run voiceover / podcast recording with your favourite microphone (dynamic or condenser).

Compatible with Windows 7 (32 & 64 bit), Vista (32 & 64 bit), XP, 2000 and Max OS X (10.1 or later). It features a built in headphone jack so that you can monitor the sound without the need for an additional sound card. It also includes an integrated pre-amp with mic gain control which allows you to control the signal strength, and phantom power to allow condenser microphone connection. Use Monitor Mix Control, (scroll wheel) to blend the mic signal and audio playback to get the mix just right in your headphones.
