  • Very nice

    As reviewed by PATRICK DRISCOLL on 6/28/2012

    Solid construction. Great product for getting a quality signal into your computer from a microphone. Phantom power, gain adjustments and monitoring are all useful features as well. Well worth the money.

    As reviewed by Jeffrey Brothers on 1/26/2012

    I reviewed several XLR-to-USB adapters. I needed more than just podcast quality and went with the Shure X2u. Glad I did. It's everything it proported to be. A great value.

  • XLR to USB is the best

    As reviewed by David on 3/15/2011

    You can always count on Shure to provide a quality product. The quality of the audio is excellent, but equally as important are the available controls for Mic Gain, Volume, and Monitoring (to facilitate overlaying tracks).
