The SAMSON Meteor Mic is a USB Studio Condenser Microphone and is great for non-professional recording of sound for YouTube, podcasts, games, streams and video chats.

Introduction

The SAMSON Meteor Mic is a condenser microphone with a large 1″ / 25 mm diaphragm condenser. It has a 20Hz – 20 kHz frequency response. This means that it has a much greater frequency response, a louder output, more sensitivity and a transient response when compared with, for example, dynamic microphones.

Being a unidirectional microphone (also known as a cardioid microphone), the SAMSON Meteor Mic is good at rejecting sounds from other than the front direction. This makes them great to be used as vocal or speech microphones.
