Samson’s QH4 includes stereo 1/4” inputs to connect with your mixing console or studio interface and a stereo 1/8” Aux In for playing music via smartphone or MP3 player.

Combine stereo channels using QH4’s key feature, the Mono button, before audio is outputted to headphones, allowing listeners to check for phase issues, mono compatibility or when monitoring tracks that are split left and right. The Mono button also allows you to take a split left and right feed from a stereo interview and send both tracks to each side of your headphones, an ideal feature for quickly monitoring a podcast or recording with split tracks.
