Samson Meteor Mic First LookApr 20th, 2011 | By James Lewin | Category: Podcasting Hardware
Retailer UniqueSquared.com put together this first look at the new Samson Meteor Mic – a USB mic that was introduced at the 2011 NAMM Show.
While it’s not really an impartial review, it does a good job of demonstrating the features of the Meteor – which could be a good match for podcasters.
The Meteor Mic has one of the larger condenser diaphragms (25mm) of any USB mic. It offers a cardioid pickup pattern and 16-bit, 44.1/48kHz resolution. The Chrome-plated body features built-in tripod legs that can be used in multiple positions.
The Samson Meteor microphone is expected to sell for about $100.
