Overview

Our take on the Samson Meteor Mic

The Samson Meteor Mic sports a cool-looking chrome-plated body with a retro design, but the convenience this mic gives you is decidedly 21st century. Inside the casing is a large 25mm condenser diaphragm that accurately captures sonic detail. Just connect the mic's USB cable to your laptop or tablet and start recording with your favorite digital audio workstation software. The Meteor Mic is compatible with both Windows® and Mac® operating systems. And it records with 16-bit/44.1kHz resolution delivering accurate, detailed recordings.

Features

USB Studio Microphone: The Meteor Mic by Samson is a USB studio microphone for recording music and audio on your computer (Windows or Mac). Perfect for your home studio, 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 you're recording.

CD Quality Sound + Extended Frequency Range: With a frequency response of 20Hz-20kHz and a resolution of 16-bit, 44.1kHz, you can be sure you're getting professional audio, CD-quality sound and recording.

Plus, since there's no need for drivers, you can start recording right out of the box on many computers.
