    Samson Meteor Mic

    To whom it may concern:

    My recent purchase of Samson Meteor Mic, has proven to be superior to the equipment that came with my dictation program. I am still learning how to best use this Mic, with different dictation programs, but so far, it has met all my expectations and I am sure that one's, I get more proficient integrating my computer programs with, Samson Microphone. I will be truly satisfied.

    I love the mic. It does great for me. I was using my webcam as my default mic. Now I am using the
    Samson Meteor mic and it is so much better.It works good with Cortana and recording my videos.

    It's good but...

    while it is handy at times, it is a pain to hear EVERYTHING in the background while recording on this. it's supposed to have a built in pop filter but it picks up background dead air which is a hassle to deal with

    too much feed back

    Like everything else you get what you pay for but it does have decent sound quality just beware the feed back perfect first time microphone

    Samson Meteor mic

    Samson meteor is a nice solid piece. it "feels" good & solid like most good mics. finish is beautiful. tripod legs are engineered well. integrated headphone monitor jack is super convenient & what i did not pick up reading features, ipad plays back through meteor to headphones. think i know why samson does not illustrate meteor on a standard 5/8" thread mic stand. function is perfect. it just looks a bit odd with tripod legs folded out which they must be when using central bottom positioned stand thread. samson meteor is a great & simple device!

    This is a great little usb mic!

    This unit is small but well built. You can feel the weight and quality of the product. Not some cheap plastic....metal! Records great. Has a nice case and box. Using it to record our band right to our laptop.

    Big Value for Little Price

    I bought this mic as my first step up for needing a more professional sound for doing webinars and podcasts. Super portable and great quality sound. I loved it so much I bought a second one so I could have one in each location, home and office.

    Meteor Mic

    This Microphone is a great buy. Understand what you are getting before you buy. its not going to be an amazing Neuman but it sure is handy, easy to use and sounds decent recording vocals or even electric and acoustic guitars. Great bang for the buck. be careful t is very easy to distort

    I LOVE my new Meteor Mic!!!!

    I do LOVE my new Mic.
    I am setting up a small home studio so I can send Voice-over
    auditions and land more voice-over gigs from home-base....
    this beautiful and very functional mic has enabled me to send out 4
    auditions to my agent without having to go to the studio and record!!!!
    You Sweetwater people have also been very helpful and responsive as well.
    I will be ordering a keyboard and other equipment from you as soon as I can....Thank you!!!! :)

    I use this mic to record a concert band that I play in. It does a great job and I can use it with my IPad, and my Zoom 8. Everything can just fit in one case.

    Great Product

    I love how compact this microphone is. The setup was simple and painless. Just plug in and go. The headphone plugs in easily and is recognized by Windows 7.

    The recording quality is good for my purposes, online course VoiceOver.

  • from May 9, 2012

    It is a major step up from what I was using

    As advertised, this mic is very nice for its price and mobility. Its small case is easy to transport when recording in different places. Along with the recordings I have been getting I would recommend this to any amateur recording artist.

    Love the Meteor Mic and Sweetwater

    The Meteor Mic is just what I needed. I am on a ton of conference calls and this setup allows me to talk, hands-free, and do other things whilst on the calls. It works great with Cicso IP Communicator when it is set as the default device. I could not ask for more. Oh but wait, it works with Garage Band on my iPad too. It's very cool.

    I also want to thank Sweetwater for helping me with the mic. There where some issues with the first one I received and they were right there ready to deal with the issue and make it right. They have communicated with my over and over again to make sure that I am satisfied with my purchase and my overall experience with their service. Let me assure you that I am. I have never had a company be so attentive. It was very much appreciated. Thanks.

    Samson Meteor Mic

    Mic is great!! no need for a mic stand or a shock mount . quality is excellent! affordable and worth studio material. This mic is absolutely better than than Smason CO1U

    Great mic! Buy a better USB cable for it. Now!

    First things first. The reason I didn't give the Meteor Mic a 5 instead of 4.5 I gave it is, The included cable is horrible.

    Its very thin and was picking up a lot of interference in the form of a high pitched whine. Switched out for a better shielded cable I already had and viola! No noise and sounds great.

    Aside from the cheap cable this mic sounds great! Works perfect for my needs(Acoustic guitar, voice, basic drums and small guitar amps).

    The mute function is great as I don't want to hear anything but the playback from Garageband when I'm not recording.

    It's really well build and has a nice weight to it, doesn't feel cheap at all. Even the volume knob is nice and solid feeling, unlike some USB mics with the same feature this doesn't feel like I'm going to break it.
    The mic stand mount on the bottom is a great thing along with the built in legs, and the placement of the USB and Headphone Jacks couldn't be better, their out of the way as they should be.

    Overall I love the Meteor! Best deal I have found so far this year!

    If you need a simple solution for recording and don't need a ton of gear buy the Meteor! Don't forget to get a better USB cable.
