Samson Meteor Mic is Retro Cool
January 7th, 2011
There are all kinds of uses for a good USB microphone connected to your computer. You can use it to play games with speakers rather than having to use a headset with a mic, for making podcasts, and you can even use it to record your own music. Samson has a new mic that is perfect for any digital audio recording need and it is called the Meteor Mic.
The mic is really cool looking and reminds me of something you would see hanging in the studio of a 50′s radio station. The mic is chrome plated and has a really cool integrated stand that can position the mic at different angles for your need. The mic is USB powered and comes with a soft carry bag.
The Meteor Mic has a 25mm diaphragm, cardioid pickup design, a frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz. It can record CD quality audio in 16-bit 44.1/48kHz resolution audio. It needs no drivers to work and even has a headphone input for monitoring. The Meteor Mic will be available on April 15 for $99 (USD).
