With its cardioid and omnidirectional polar pattern options, the Saramonic SmartMic MTV500 USB condenser microphone offers versatility and quality sound capture for podcasters, content creators, singers, and musicians using Mac or Windows computers for their productions. Cardioid mode is ideal for recording one speaker or a solo performer in front of the mic while rejecting background noise behind the mic, whereas the omnidirectional setting delivers 360° responsiveness to capture everything around the mic such as multiple people gathered near the mic.

The SmartMic MTV500 boasts a built-in pop filter to reduce pops from vocal plosives, a gain knob for optimizing the mic level, and a mute button to cut the mic signal between performances or sections. Also, the mic features a 3.5mm headphone jack with its own volume control for convenient real-time audio monitoring. Driver-free setup ensures simple plug-and-play operation, and the included USB Type-C to USB Type-A cable allows proper connectivity with most computers.
