    Samson Meteor reviews

    Meteor Mic USB Studio Condenser Microphone is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meteor Mic for Podcasting I used the Meteor Mic to record a podcast. The sound quality was excellent, with rich tones and consistent volume. I had previously used a headset with a boom mic and the results were not great. The Meteor Mic is a significant improvement, even though it's quite reasonably priced. If anything, it was a little too sensitive, so I had to isolate it from my desktop to avoid it picking up my mouse clicks.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a Good Match for iPad! Despite selling this bundled with iPad USB adapters it is NOT a good fit. While it will function with an iPad/iPhone there is NO control over the mic's initial gain / A-D stage. It will input a signal with it's gain at full ... so if you are close to the mic or recording a loud sound, the signal will distort in the mic itself. Even if you wind down an App's record level you just end up with a lower amplitude clipped signal.The manual is clear that the only way to reduce the level of the mic into the AD converter is via USB from a connected computer ( eg Apple's Sound Control Panel ). iPad/ iiPhone *cannot* do this. Maybe Samson should release an App to do it?The Apogee MiC is better ( and more expensive ) option. It has a physical gain control ( no headphone out though).The Meteor works great connected to an actual computer. NIce sound good headphone output... zero latency monitoring.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genuinely Pleased To start, I purchased this mic on sale. It came in the male on the expected date and had no blemishes nor was there damage to the packaging. I plugged it into my PC and recorded myself for a few trials on Adobe Audition. On playback, I could not notice any static or unwanted noise behind my voice. However, when playing times where I am not speaking at all, the faintest bit of fuzz can be heard. This is nothing noticeable unless being listened for and it is nothing that can't be fixed with a smalle adjustment of Adobe Audition's noise reduction process. My voice sounds clear and the mic does a good job of picking up every bit of intended emotion. I am genuinely pleased with what I received for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great USB Mic This is a great USB Mic thatpicks up audio from very far. We tested it today at a conference room and it was able to pick up on people whispering at the back of the room about 25ft away from the Mic. Has great range and gives a high proformance quailty to it. Plus the feel is retro and gives you an even more reliable feeling. I would so use this device at home and would recommend this product to anyone seeking a USB Mic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing mic, an amazing service from BH The mic itself is amazing, I already knew that. I'm using it for streaming and my voice quality went from okay to amazing. Though, I'm more amazed by the shipping time. I got the mic in 9 days and I ordered it from Turkey! It came from USA to Turkey to my hands in 9 days! So, than you Samson and thank you BH for amazing service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything it's supposed to be. I'm using this for recording with Camtasia screen capture software for training videos. It got me out of the laptop mic talking in a box sound. Quite pleased with it in all aspects. Sound, size, style - it works as expected and has improved the quality of my videos. It's compact enough to travel with, though it is heavy enough that I won't take it on business trips unless I'm certain I'll be using it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meteoric Excellent mic, had not used Samson products before, but needed a good USB mic to record a MOOC course being taught by me. Took much time looking at less expensive, and wayyy more expensive mikes, and settled on buying this one because it had all the specs of more expensive mikes yet was much less expensive. Well, this greatly exceeded my expectations, got everything recorded, and perfect! Needless to say, you need appropriate audio set up to avoid ambient sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy Purchased this as gift for my son who is focused on narrating videos he is making for school classes. High quality, great results considering price. USB makes this mic very easy to incorporate in video editing on laptop. Used primarily as a desk top microphone but has also been used as a mic on a table during interview with great results. May not be true studio quality, but very happy with results overall. Highly recommended for use with laptop
