Emissive recording quality

The Saramonic MTV550 condenser microphone for podcasting will allow you to record broadcast-quality audio quickly and conveniently. And you don’t have to worry about having to buy additional tools like mixers or audio interfaces. All you need is one microphone to start recording on your computer, tablet or smartphone.

Computers, tablets, smartphones

Included with the microphone you’ll find 3 cables, so you can conveniently connect to the device of your choice. Whether you’re recording a podcast outdoors on your smartphone, testing out new song ideas with your iPad app, or looking to expand the capabilities of a PC-based streamer, the Saramonic MTV550 is perfect for all of these situations. iOS, Android, Windows and macOS – any of these systems will let you work with this microphone, as long as the device you have is equipped with a USB, USB-C or Lightning port.

Retro-style design

The ergonomic housing of the Saramonic MTV550 microphone combines modernity with an immortal retro style. The unique design will make the device quickly become a decoration of your room, office or home studio. Thanks to the articulated tripod design, you will not only ensure the perfect angle of microphone positioning during recording, but also the compact size after folding, which will facilitate convenient transport in your bag or backpack. Thanks to the pop filter, you’ll minimise the risk of distortion and crackling, which can cause explosive sounds (that’s all the “p “s, “b “s, “t “s that cause uncontrolled air ejections) – both when speaking and singing.

Variety of applications

You don’t need to be a certified sound engineer to successfully adapt the recording characteristics to different applications. The Saramonic MTV550 condenser microphone for podcasting features a special switch that allows you to change the operating mode. Options include piano, vocal, speech, acoustic music and band. With so many presets at your disposal, you can be sure that one device is enough to successfully record ideas for new songs, broadcasts, rehearsals and various instruments.

High-quality podcasts

Get the most out of your cardioid microphone by recording speech, commentary and your own dialogue tracks to create professional podcasts or broadcasts. With the Saramonic MTV550 microphone your voice will be clear and loud enough. Just connect the microphone to your computer, smartphone or tablet and your room or office turns into a professional recording studio!

Real-time listening

On the microphone housing you will find a 3.5 mm mini jack socket, which will allow you to conveniently connect headphones. Real-time monitoring of recorded speech or vocal parts will allow you to more easily catch any mistakes, errors or slips of the tongue. You don’t need any additional mixer to hear your voice in the headphones and have full control over the recorded audio!

Enjoy the music

Singing songs or playing an instrument? The Saramonic MTV550 microphone will allow you to quickly and conveniently record vocal samples, ideas for new riffs or fleeting melodies that will become the basis for your songs in the future. Convenient access to switches and buttons, as well as child’s play operation, will allow you to focus on what is most important – the spontaneous enjoyment of music.

Always ready to work

Out of the box, you just need a few seconds to connect the microphone to the device of your choice (supported by iOS, macOS, Android and Windows) and start recording. You won’t need any additional drivers or configuration software. Just set the Saramonic MTV550 microphone as your input audio device… and done! Thanks to the simple “plug & play” solution, you don’t need anyone’s help to record your podcasts in a professional way, providing you with crystal-clear audio quality while videoconferencing, making your own broadcasts, or playing online games.

Intuitive operation

When using the Saramonic MTV550 microphone, you don’t need to run any additional applications or virtual mixers to adjust the listening volume, activate the high-pass filter or select the appropriate operating mode. Physical knob and buttons allow you to quickly and conveniently adjust the recording parameters to your needs. The manufacturer has also taken care of people who would like to use the microphone during a video conference. There is a special button on the casing, with which you can mute your voice in a second. An LED will inform you that the “mute” mode has been activated. Using this solution, you gain full control over the recorded sound and a convenient way to quickly mute the microphone.
