Question about Samson C01U - USB Studio Condenser Microphone Consumer Microphone
SOURCE: Playback only on left speaker
It seems that the Samson driver has been reported to have some problems with stereo. Your choices are to use the mic in mono (which most recording is done in anyway) or unistall the SoftPre App which Samson provides with the mic and select a generic driver.

Control Panel > Sound Audio Device > go to Voice Tab > check your drop down list for Voice Recording and make sure you put on Samson C01U then test your hardware and see you get any pick up. I had to research on what to do.
Now my problem is why the mic is only picking up on the left side of the ear instead of the right. =/

SOURCE: C01u PROBLEM PLS HELP ?!
That's the way it's supposed to work. It's a mono microphone, so there's only one signal to record.
Set up your recording software so that it only records the Left channel. It describes how to do this on the Samson FAQ page and in the Owner's Manual:
"In your digital audio workstation (DAW), create a mono audio track, and set it to the Left channel of the C01U (the Right channel should be ignored). Arm the track for recording, and adjust the input gain by using the software control in your computer's operating system"
Don't try to alter the pan so both sides are the same; that will just screw up the levels and noise.

Welcome to the world of STUDIO microphones. Super quality BUT you must have a studio to use them. You can't have any local speaker playing into them. You often use headphones lest your monitor speakers will feedback. At the high frequency capability of these mics, you can fry your amps with oscillations above what you can hear!

A condenser mic. requires "phantom power" usually supplied by a mixing desk. Without this, there will be no output signal from the mic.
