Samson Meteor Mic is Retro Cool


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).

    I use a Samson C01U for all my podcast/audio recording purposes. It’s a beautiful microphone with great quality. While the audio quality of this mic is probably comparable (‘specially since it’s “newer” tech) I’m not digging the chrome-ified look.

    Otherwise the design is pretty hot!

    Having had a CO1U and now using a Samson G-Track, I’m very interested in this. It looks awesome and is good value for money.

    The obvious question is: is this just a shinier version of the G-track as far as the capsule and electronics? I have a G-track and am quite happy with it, even though it doesn’t look like it walked off a 50’s sci-fi movie set ;-)
