Read What Others Say About the Samson Q2U
Ray Ortega – renowned professional podcaster
In reviewing the ATR2100-USB Ray says “this microphone is an excellent start or addition to any podcaster’s studio” and goes on to say “For those of you in Europe, the Samson Q2U is the exact same microphone just with different branding”
“Best Podcasting Microphone Under £50”
“The ATR2100 is fine for US podcasters, but it’s very hard to get in the UK and elsewhere.” “If you’re non-US based, like me, then the Q2U is the alternative to the ATR2100. As I’m writing this, the Samson Q2U is actually cheaper than the ATR, so it might be the better option anyway.”
