Table of contents
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.
We have tested most of these products ourselves. Other selection criteria include affordability, quality, availability and average user rating and popularity by other buyers.
