Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone

The Samson C03U is a side-address USB condenser with three polar patterns.

The C03U uses the same dual 19mm diaphragm capsule and body as the C03. A green LED indicates computer connection.

The mic’s polar pattern is selectable via a switch: Supercardioid, Omni, and Figure-8 are available. Two additional switches independently enable a -10dB pad and high-pass filter.

The onboard ADC operates at 16 bit, 48kHz max. It does not have a separate analog output.

The mic ships with a swivel stand mount and 10ft USB cable.
