Sennheiser Releases the Profile USB Microphone for Streaming and Podcasting


As the streaming and podcasting industry continues to boom, so does the title of the best streaming and podcasting mic. Sennheiser is one company that will not let itself fall behind in this arena.

Sennheiser coins its new Profile USB microphone as the “easy and stylish solution” when it comes to streaming and podcasting. The cardioid condenser USB microphone is patterned after the award-winning KE 10 condenser capsule but the difference lies in its USB port rather than an XLR one.

Sennheiser’s USB mic also has a no-noise mute button, gain control knob, and mix control that are all built-in. With such a design, Sennheiser removes the need to download or purchase an audio interface to tweak any settings or controls.

Seeing how important it is for users to simply start recording and creating rather than setting up, Dennis Stegemerten highlights the design of the Profile USB mic.

“The design is simple and efficient and does not overwhelm you. Profile is simply plugged into the USB-C port of your computer or tablet — your device will automatically recognize the microphone, and it’s ready to capture your voice. There is no need for an interface or any software, no additional window to keep open so that you can control the mic settings. One intuitive touch of a control directly on the mic — that’s that is needed.”.

Thanks to the convenient and intuitive design of the Sennheiser Profile USB microphone, users of the plug-and-play recording device will find it easy to use for streaming and content creation.

“When you are recording your podcast or doing a live stream, you already have to worry about the content, perhaps room treatment, the camera set-up, interaction with your audience — the last thing you need in this situation is a complex audio set-up”, says product manager Benny Franke.

The design, features, and inclusions of the Profile USB microphone are certainly things that will make any creative happy.
