Sennheiser Profile USB Microphone: Packed with Comprehensive Features now in UAE
The New Sennheiser Profile USB Microphone
Sennheiser, this 77-year-old company founded and based in Germany, has released its own USB microphone recently, and is now available here in the UAE; the Sennheiser Profile USB Microphone.
Is this going to be the new USB Microphone killer since a microphone with its kind started back in the early 2000. So many leading brands have pioneered the market and finally, this household name came up with its own contender product.
As per the released images, one can immediately tell that its well-built looking design guarantees the output that many podcasters, streamers or content creators need.

Sennheiser Profile USB Microphone emphasizes on putting audio quality and ease of use first.
“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. So we tried to create tech that gets out of the way of your creative process.”– Benny Franke, Sennheiser Product Manager
“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 all that is needed.”– Dennis Stegemerten, Sennheiser Product Manager
I can’t wait to have it installed on my computer and give it a test and see how it “produces a natural, warm sound that can even be experienced on platforms that compress the audio” and perhaps, to have it as my permanent replacement of my current USB microphone.
