KnowBrainer Speech Recognition Perspective:
The Samson X1U is the "Best of its Class" (sub $100.00 Table top Microphone) we have tested. Note that the X1U, isn't ideally suited for speech recognition out of the box and can only be used from approximately 6 inches. After KnowBrainer staff make necessary adjustments the X1U can reach a 24 + inch range.
Samson Product Notes:
USB, Meet Wireless.
Samson's Stage X1U USB Digital Wireless System brings freedom, convenience and high-quality sound to your computer recordings and digital communications. Using a USB-powered receiver and a handheld transmitter with Samson's Q6 Dynamic Microphone capsule, the Stage X1U provides 100' of wireless range, simple setup, and natural, detailed vocals.
No Hassle -
Unlike traditional wireless systems that require complex setup processes such as matching component frequencies, the Stage X1U automatically pairs the receiver to the transmitter. Direct connection to a computer's USB port enables instant transmission of audio to your DAW, VoIP and speech-to-text software without the need for extra cables or external audio interfaces. It's even compatible with iPads and iPhones (4S and later) using Apple's Lightning to USB Camera Adapter or Camera Connection Kit (30-pin).
Clean Performance -
Need to make a quick video? When used with your computer's internal webcam, the Stage X1U is ideal for creating quick audiovisuals for tutorials or music performances on YouTube. The included tripod stand and mic clip also makes the Stage X1U a perfect VoIP solution for office desktops and conference room tables.
Wireless Expedition -
In addition to digital communication applications, the Stage X1U can be used with Samson Expedition Series Portable PAs that feature USB Wireless ports (XP106, XP800, XP1000) to create a completely mobile wireless presentation/performance solution. Up to two Stage X1U systems can be used simultaneously in the same location to all for multiple performers.
