NAMM: Cute Little ‘GO’ Mic From Samson

Jan 18th, 2009 | By | Category: Audio Podcasting, Podcasting, Podcasting Hardware

At the NAMM Show this weekend, we’ve been looking at a range of music, audio and video gear that might be useful to podcasters and other media creators. One of the things that caught my eye was a prototype of the upcoming Samson “Go” microphone.

The Go Mic is a neat little USB condenser microphone that can clip right onto the edge of a laptop display, or twist, as shown here, to sit unobtrusively on your desk. This mic is both Mac and PC-compatible, no drivers required.

The Go Mic can be used for recording music, podcasts or away-from-studio recording, but could also be for use with voice recognition software, iChat, or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) applications.

The Go Mic boasts switchable cardioid and omni polar patterns, and a frequency response of 20Hz – 18kHz and a 44.1kHz/16-bit resolution. The little mic also comes with a 1/8″ headphone jack. Also, did we mention that it’s also really inexplicably cute?

The Samson Go microphone is expected to be commercially available later this year, and will retail for about $49.
