Very nice

Comments about Shure X2u XLR-to-USB Microphone Adapter:

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.

XLR to USB is the best

By 

from Delmar NY

Comments about Shure X2u XLR-to-USB Microphone Adapter:

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).
