OVERVIEW


Versatile, great-sounding USB microphone.

The Samson Meteor Mic is the universal solution for inputting live audio to your computer. It is perfect for home studio applications, but the Meteor Mic is also ideal for Skype, iChat or voice recognition software. Its cardioid pickup pattern, smooth frequency response and 16-bit, 44.1/48kHz resolution give you professional audio results no matter what the project. Meteor Mic's chrome-plated body includes a fold-back leg design that looks cool on your desktop, and the legs adjust to the optimal position for any application from acoustic guitars to vocals or speech.

Since there's no need for drivers, you can start recording right out of the box on any computer. And Meteor Mic is compatible with most computer-based digital audio workstations. A USB cable and carry pouch are also included.

For singer/songwriters or a band looking to capture a jam session right on a computer, Meteor Mic ensures you get every note. Its cardioid pickup pattern captures pristine vocals or can be used to close-mic an instrument or guitar amplifier. Unlike other USB mics that require a powered USB hub, Meteor Mic plugs right into your iPad with Apple's USB connector.

For multimedia creators, Meteor Mic brings amazing audio quality to voiceovers. If you're adding narration to a company video, or even your home movies, Meteor Mic will give your words clarity and impact. You can even use Meteor Mic to narrate PowerPoint presentations.

Meteor Mic is an all-in-one solution that lets you make great recordings on your computer.

    Bought this for my 12yo to use in Garage Band. Easy plug and play. I was surprised at how sturdy it is. He uses it to record his violin. Sound is okay...not great. Perfect for getting ideas down.

            Honestly, when I saw the price for this mic, I expected it to be constructed of plastic. I was wrong. I don't remember seeing this in the description, but you can easily attach it to a mic stand without any additional pieces.
            I bought this for my son to use for his game system. He really enjoys it and likes the sound. I can't wait to get time to use it for recording.

              I use the Samson meteor Mic for recording my Jm Tracks and Bluegrass Backing Tracks. It makes my acoustic guitar sound amazing!!! I use it with Audacity DAW software as well as my audio capturing device when creating videos. Words can't describe watch the video review or listen to any of my tracks on YouTube and you'll hear for yourself. Buy it you won't regret it!!!

                Love this usb mic. Great for home recordings with my iMac. Use it with garage band and iMovie and get some pretty quality recordings. Pics up EVERYTHING so make sure your using it in a sound controlled room. Great price and I'm happy with my decision to purchase this mic.

                    I bought two of these, one for me and my musical recording endeavors and one for my wife for her skyping. Unbelievably great sound!! It was plug and use for me, so easy. I use it for recording all my Youtube videos in all situations, acoustic guitar solo, guitar and vocals together. It seems to do the equalization itself. I place it where I think it will pick up everything and it does the rest. Can't go wrong purchasing this mic.

                    The sound quality of this microphone is extremely good for its price, however, the position of the USB input on the microphone itself means that if you bump it too far backwards, you'll break off the USB chip inside the mic. As long as you're careful, it's a good mic, but take care when adjusting it.

                    Comments about Samson Meteor USB Mic:

                    I bought this mic for recording my podcast. I use it over skype and even when recording via VOIP, the quality is stunning. I recieve comments from my Co-host on the other side of the conversation. I can whisper from 2 feet away, and the listener could still hear it. If you plan on getting a mic, but have a limited budget: this mic is for you.

                    First thing you will notice is the weight of the mic. It's not extrememly heavy, but it has a great balance between heavy and lightweight (it doesn't feel like your gonna break it when you pick it up). Everything is sturdy on this mic, even the volume knob. The fact that it has its own tripod is a plus, especially if your working with limited desk space. Overall, I can't find anything wrong with this mic. Great buy for a great price.
