Details

Professional podcasters, singers, and voice-over artists take note: the Apogee Mic Plus USB Microphone with headphone Output, Tripod and Stand Adapter is a studio-quality microphone in a USB form factor for your podcasts, one that can deliver a record-ready sound in minutes, even if you don't know much about room treatment or mic technique. The mic sports converters and preamps from Apogee—a company famed for their analog-to-digital technology—, and is designed to work with Mac, Windows, or iOS devices.

If you're looking for a no-fuss setup as well as a mic that can handle searingly loud sounds without distortion, the MiC Plus will deliver, as its jam-packed with features to elevate the sound quality. The mic's cardioid polar pattern is the perfect, most natural tool for capturing a clean sound: it minimizes room reflections and focuses audio capture onto whatever's in front of the capsule. Easy-to-use controls let you adjust the levels or mute them with the press of a button. Extra touches, such as a tabletop tripod stand, mic stand adapter clip, a USB cable, and a Lightning cable, make recording even easier right out of the box.

A High-Quality Mic

Apogee is a well-regarded name in analog to digital conversion, so you can trust that the MiC Plus will net you a pristine, clear sound. The mic's condenser capsule picks up nuances in intimate detail, and its cardioid polar pattern minimizes errant room reflections.

Fits Your Setup

Geared towards podcasters, singers, musicians, or anyone else seeking a stellar sound with minimal setup, the MiC Plus works with Macs, PCs, and iOS devices, giving you a consistently great sound every time.

Cardioid Polar Pattern for the Untreated Room

The microphone makes use of a directional cardioid polar pattern to minimize off-axis sound. This polar pattern naturally, yet effectively tamps down room tone and focuses the audio capture on what's directly in front of the mic. Depending on your particular room, you may still need a little room treatment, or some noise-reduction software, to address issues such as your computer's hum or your air conditioner, but the chances of that are markedly lower with a cardioid polar pattern.

Built-In Zero-Latency Monitoring

Monitor your levels with headphones plugged directly into the mic's 3.5mm connection, and use the Blend function for zero-latency monitoring with your processed tracks.

Simple Controls

On the control side, it offers a prominent gain knob for easy adjustments, and a handy push-to-mute button as well.

Professional Audio Capture

This USB mic boasts a 96 kHz/24-bit converter, one made by one of the best hardware DSP companies in the business. You'll be able to record audio with the same specifications of a professional recording studio.

No Configuration Required

Class-Compliant design means all you have to do is plug the mic into your computer or iOS device: no pesky driver downloads are required. The mic is bus-powered from your computer or iOS device, the mic boasts a 24-bit/96 kHz converter made by one of the best hardware DSP companies in the business.

Included Hardware

A tabletop tripod stand, mic stand adapter clip, a USB cable, and Lightning cables make recording easy right out of the box.
