Mackie believes that stellar audio quality shouldn't be expensive. The EM-USB USB Condenser Microphone offers a top-notch microphone option for streamers, podcasters, and other content creators. The EM-USB has an onboard gain control with a separate headphone monitoring knob so you can hear exactly what your audience does. This mic has an integrated mute button to prevent sneezes and other unwanted noises from being recorded. The audio experts here at Sweetwater really like the included tabletop stand. With it, you can turn any surface into your own personal studio. All you have to do is attach the stand, boot up your computer, and get started. You'll never miss the opportunity to capture an interview, song idea, or any natural sound around you.
