Really great mic for what it is

Okay, this is obviously not the voiceover mic of your dreams. Nor should it be...it's not intended for that purpose. It's a USB mic, and a reasonably priced one as well. And for what it is, it's fabulous. If you want something really fantastic, you need to get out of the USB game and go for the really expensive mics. But this, for what it is, is a reliable, good sounding tank of a mic. And bonus...it's cute looking. :) *side note: it sounds better if you put it on a boom arm with a shock mount. Not NECESSARY, but it improves the quality of the sound quite a bit.

Love it!

Works well for my son for Zoom and Discord

My son asked for a microphone so he can talk to his friends on Discord and for his classes on zoom. People had been complaining the mic on his new gaming headset didn't sound good and cut out quite often. His friends/classmates all say the sound is significantly better than before. Have not used it for voice over or singing applications but for these two purposes it works fine.

Great Mic

This USB mic is compact with very good quality. I use it for Zoom meetings and recordings and the results are good.

Possible paperweight - next computer build will determine

Torn between 2 and 3 stars right now because this doesn't work. It initially shows up with a faint yellow LED when plugged in. Went thru the instructions on the Samson site about removing the hidden USB Composite device from the computer's Device Manager and trying again, and got it working...for a day. Then next reboot, same thing but no recovery. I do know my present computer has taken some USB controller damage and is pretty old (X99 motherboard based), so I'll withhold final judgement until I can complete my new build and try the microphone on that. It looks ok. Does that count?

question

As this is a Studio Stereo Mic. Does that mean that, when wearing headphones, you can hear the sound from either side of your head? E.g. If I click my fingers on the right hand side of the mic, I'll hear the click in my right ear, not my left or visa versa?

Using a USB 2.0 mini b 5 pin to mini b 5 pin male/male cable could you connect the meteor mic to a Tascam DR-40 and record audio into the Tascam?
Asked by: Sean
This USB microphone only works when directly connected to a computer, you can not connect to a audio recorder such as the Tascam DR-40, the recorder has a usb on the side however that's only to transfer files to a computer or power the unit with a battery pack It's not a usb microphone input.
