Makes Computer Recording a Breeze!Samson's Go Mic is a super-handy USB microphone that's perfect for recording, podcasting, web-casting, "Skype"-ing, and more - all from your laptop or desktop computer. The Samson Go Mic features a special compact design that can clip to your laptop or sit upright on your desk. There's a built-in headphone output, so you can listen as you record audio. Plus, it has two different polar pickup patterns to meet a range of recording needs. Available in black or white, there are a USB cable, a zipper case, and Music Creator software included with the Samson Go Mic.
Samson Go Mic USB Microphone at a Glance:
Compact design makes computer recording easy
Pair the Samson Go Mic with your laptop and you'll be ready to record whenever you want. This compact microphone can clip neatly onto the top of your laptop, so it can pick up your voice for podcasting, voiceover recording, Skype chatting, and more. Or, if you'd rather put it on the table, you can do that too - the Samson Go Mic's built-in clip makes it ready for your varying recording setups.
Two different pickup patterns add flexibility
Say you want to record podcasts one day, track your whole band the next day, then video-conference with your friend across the world - well, the Samson Go Mic is ready to handle your range of needs. That's because Samson gave this little microphone two different pickup patterns - one cardioid and one omnidirectional - so you can adjust it to suit whatever you're recording. Flip it into cardioid mode when you're recording your voice, acoustic guitar, or other close-miked instruments - this pickup pattern is tightly focused. Then, when you want to capture the whole room for podcasting sound effects, or a jam with a few friends, you can flip it into omnidirectional mode - which records from all directions.
Comes with everything you need to get started
The Samson Go Mic records CD-quality 16-bit/44.1kHz audio, and it's ready to record into your software program of choice - Mac or PC. But, if you don't already have an audio recording program, you can use the included Music Creator software. The Go Mic also includes a USB cable and a zipper case - so you'll be ready to record at home or to pack it up for field recording, from the moment you open the box.

The Samson Go Mic is ready to record whenever you are!

What a little POWERHOUSE mic!
by Sue Nason from United States-North CarolinaI have one of these of my own and I have bought two for friends of mine, because at this price.....I can definitely afford it! This is a very small mic, but you will simply NOT believe the power it h... read more [+]as! The full rich sound from it is totally mind-blowing. It was the first mic I bought and I did not want to spend a lot of money, not knowing if I would pursue singing or not at that point. It surpassed my expectations and still does. It is so easy to carry with you anywhere you go and is a convenient USB mic. It clips on to a laptop or just about anything you want to clip it on. Only your imagination limits you as to where you can place it and use it! I highly recommend it to someone wanting a quality mic at a dirt cheap price! Amazing!! Sue close [-]

Real studio recording review
by Ali from Charlotte NC.Ok so for any one thinking of picking this up for vocal music recording here is a true review for you. I'm using this mic with my Ipad to record Into Aruia a new DAW for ipad. With the micro wormer an... read more [+]d pro Q you damn near can make this mic sound like any thing if you have a quiet place to record. It only records in 16bit 44.1 resolution and has no major volum control other then a 10db pad. That being said it has its limitations. Iv recently recorded three songs iv let some majors in the industry listento and they were not only shocked to learn all the recording and production was done on the ipad but more shocked when I showed them this little $40 beauty. So long story short. If you know what your doing you can make this work with amazing results.

If your using the ipad to record this is the perfact mic as its far more compact then apogee mic and loads cheaper at a loss of recording resolution and a volum switch. on the pluse side the clip is perfact as with the magnetic cover your ipad becomes the stand and keeps it the perfact distance from your mouth. So if you only have $40 bucks to spend you can make this work with incredible results. If you have the extra change the apogee is good and will require less processing but will be more of a pain to travail with and set up.
Hope this review has helped any one on the edge of buying this guy. You won't regret it. There other USB mics in the $200 range this little guy would put to shame.
Keep recording and have fun. Peace........ close [-]
Really great little mic for the price.
by Dave from La Porte, Indiana, USAI was looking for a replacement mic for my son and ended up buying one for myself. The base for the mic is solid and can clip on anything as thick as the mic itself. I've just used it for the Intern... read more [+]et phone with headphones and I can tell it's very sensitive. It picks up the hum of the computer fan and every little noise in the room. I haven't used it yet for any real recording but I'm sure it will make any music or sound recording nut happy with the results. Haven't had a chance yet to play with the software but it looks good. Great bang for the buck. close [-]

It was recommended to me to try a USB microphone; we did some res... read more [+]earch and decided to try out the Samson Go Mic.
We were truly enchanted from the beginning. Compact, pleasing, easy to install and use. I did spend a bit of time fiddling with the switch on the side to find the best setting for my recordings (middle setting) but once that was done - GREAT!
You wouldn't believe the quality, just excellent. About as good as you can get without going into a real recording studio. And also easy to take with me.
Now I just want some headphones to go with the mic...
The one issue I have is that I haven't been able to get it to work with Skype yet... close [-]
