Do XLR To USB Cables Work?

Quick Answer: It depends on the specific XLR to USB cable that you use. Most of them will work fine with dynamic microphones. However, since they don’t supply phantom power, you will not be able to use a condenser microphone.

If you’re wanting to Connect an XLR Mic to your computer we recommend getting at least a two channel audio interface, which will cost you $80-200 or you can rent one for around $25/day.
