Question the Status Quo
This high output mic faithfully captures a wide dynamic range with exceptional mid-range clarity. Its supercardioid pickup pattern provides maximum gain before feedback, while an updated body design and pneumatic capsule shockmount minimize handling noise.

Why So Superior?
The Q8x's superior reproduction stems from the linear frequency response of its neodymium dynamic mic element. The response is flat with a slight lift around 8kHz. This makes fitting vocals in live mixes extremely easy with minimal EQ adjustments. The mic also features a supercardioid pickup pattern with excellent off-axis rejection. This enables the Q8x to pick up all the nuances of any performance with maximum volume and clarity, while reducing feedback and unwanted signals not originating in front of the mic. In addition, a high saturation level audio transformer further rejects hum and noise.

Not Just for Vocals
The Q8X is not just a great live vocal mic. It's an extremely versatile tool in the studio, perfect for numerous recording applications. As the Q8x is equipped to withstand high sound pressure levels up to 150dB SPL, it allows vocals to sound huge and crystal clear, but can also handle close miking instruments such as piercing snare drums, screaming guitar cabinets and much more.

New and Improved
With a newly-designed rugged die-cast body and hardened steel grille, along with an improved pneumatic capsule shockmount for minimizing handling noise, the Q8x provides reliable performance in even the most demanding environments.

It's a good microphone.


I love the feel of the microphone. I use it for my podcast at my Studio. I most say I don't have a sound treated Studio and it sounds great.



Fantastic service and Product


Excellent microphone. And the costumer service was just fantastic



I would buy this again.


We wanted to add a Mic to our PA for "Guest Singers" that sounded good. This seems to fit the "Bill". Seems to sound better than our SM58.



Great Bang For Buck!


The Samson Q8x is a monster microphone by Samson. It really gives you a great clarity level when it comes to vocals. This particular microphone can be used within a live setting, you can use it for studio vocals, as well as using the microphone to pick up instruments. The quality and durability are another great attribute for this mic as well. Its definitely a great pick up for any studio on any level.





I purchased this mic because I needed a sensitive/hot mic that could handle backing vocals for a drummer. Well, I have experienced zero feed back and the mic helps me deliver crystal clear harmonies with basically no EQ . It also rejects bleed over from my surrounding cymbals and drums. I've owned 58s and they are great. However, I rate this mic higher because it's a little more sensitive. Also, this thing is heavy and should survive for a long time. Incredible mic !

Samson has recently updated their flagship live microphone the Q8 and took things up a notch with the Q8x. Definetly a great microphone for vocals of all ranges, I love the way it has the ability to cut through a mix and really add shine to a vocalist performance. Pair this great performance with a durable housing and grill for only $100 and you easily have an amazing microphone that can easily top out many others of its class in the $100 range

This is one of my go-to mics. It is easy to A and B between others at the same price range, however, there is no comparison because the Q8 is a super cardioid mic (larger pickup pattern) while others are not. A typical super cardioid from other manufacturers begins in the $150 range. This also has an internal shock mount and is EQ'ed in a very sweet spot. I see more customers purchasing these over SM58's these days. This doesn't go unnoticed either...these same capsules are also being used in many of Samson's wireless series as well. Comparing a $279.99 Samson Concert 99 wireless (super cardioid Q8 @ $99...which acts like $150 the receiver comes WITH a huge LED screen) with a $299.99 Shure BLX wireless (cardioid PG58 @$59 wired, small non led screen). I stand by these pics 110%!!

Great bargain live mic


If you're on a budget but need a high quality handheld vocal mic for performances you gotta check out the Samson Q8. Performance and output similar (subjectively better) than a Shure Beta 58 at a fraction of the cost. Anytime we shootout dynamic mics our staff and customers favor the Samsons to the Shures. If you want a better sounding mic than the Q8 get ready to spend at least 2-3x what this is selling for. If you want something rugged with great sound than check out the Samson Q8 for your live sound today.
