  • Get Your Mic Drop Moment

    The C01U Pro is ideal for musicians, producers, and broadcasters, as well as recording audio for YouTube videos, voiceovers, and podcasts. A large 19mm diaphragm captures all the nuances of your voice, making the C01U PRO ideal for hip-hop/rap artists, singer-songwriters, and ADR work with video editing suites. In addition, the microphone element is shock-mounted in a solid die-cast metal construction to minimize unwanted handling noise/vibration on your recordings.
