Product description

Say you've got a favorite microphone. But you're hoping to tap into that plug-and-play convenience that USB microphones offer up. Don't worry, audio dude/dudette! Just snatch up Shure's X2u. It's an XLR-to-USB interface. That's a techy way of saying that you can plug your microphone into the X2u, then plug the X2u into your computer... you're set! Other nifty features are here to help you out too. For example, there's an ⅛" headphone jack for monitoring. There's a gain control, 48V phantom power of course, and there's even a monitor mix control so you can blend the microphone and playback audio so latency doesn't get in the way when you're monitoring. Doesn't get easier than this. And for good measure, Shure even included a padded little pouch for your X2u. Cool. Shure X2u XLR-to-USB Interface Features at a Glance: Compatible with Windows Vista, XP, 2000, and Mac OS X 10.1 or later Provides +48V Phantom power USB cable (3m / 9.8ft) included for immediate use Monitor Mix Control for blending microphone and playback audio Headphone jack with volume control for monitoring Integrated pre-amp with Microphone Gain Control allows control of input signal strength Zero Latency Monitoring for real-time playback and multi-tracking without delay 16-bit, up to 48kHz sample rate for better-than-CD quality audio
