Podcasting/Home Recording: Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 interface + Sennheiser HD600 + Condenser Mic $400 shipped ($655 value)

Adorama has a very interesting podcasting/home recording bundle on sale right now. You can grab the Sennheiser HD600 Audio Dynamic Hi-Fi Stereo Headphones plus a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 USB Audio Interface and a Samson MTR101 Condenser Microphone for $399.99 shipped. Combining all three items, that’s nearly $300 off the original listings, $255 off the current prices and the best we have seen.

Outside of the very expensive Apogee interfaces, the Scarletts are some of our favorites on the market. In combination with the MTR101 Condenser, your home recordings will certainly sound much better. While Sennheiser’s reputation as a headphone maker speaks for itself, the open-back HD 600s feature Kevlar reinforced cables and Neodymium ferrous magnets to offer a much more professional monitoring situation.

While reviews on this particular mic are scarce, just about all of the affordable Samsons have favorable reviews on Amazon. Both the headphones and the interface have 4+ stars from hundreds.

  • Lightweight aluminum voice coils ensure excellent transient response
  • Neodymium ferrous magnets maintain optimum sensitivity and excellent dynamics
