Samson's Meteorite is the universal solution for capturing high-quality recordings on your computer.

Meteorite is ideal for podcasting, creating audio for YouTube videos and recording music on your favorite software or apps. This sleek microphone will also vastly improve your ability to communicate with friends, family and business associates on programs like Skype, FaceTime and other VoIP software.

  • When combined with the iPad using Apple's Lightning USB Camera Adapter or Camera Connection Kit (30-pin), Meteorite is a great tool for making music on-the-go.

  • There is no need for drivers, as the mic can be directly connected to any computer via its integrated USB cable and is compatible with most computer-based digital audio software.

Diverse In Design
Meteorite's USB mic capabilities, combined with its ultra-portable design, make it the perfect mic accessory for any desktop or mobile recording situation. In addition, its stylish chrome-plated is sure to bring a modern, cutting edge look to your computer setup.

The Point Of No Return... Is Superior Sound
Meteorite presents an immediate improvement over your computer or tablet's internal microphone, bypassing their standard mic capsules and noisy soundcards in favor of the Meteorite's studio-quality 14mm capsule, cardiod pickup pattern and dedicated audio conversion path. Meteorite's larger condenser diaphragm provides a smooth, flat frequency response to capture the natural warmth and dynamics of your voice. And the mics 16-bit, 44.1/48kHz resolution ensures the audio recorded sounds as authentic as hearing it live. Use the Meteorite once, and you’ll never look back.

State Your Position
No matter the application, mic placement is everything! Meteorite mounts to a magnetic base that lets you tilt and swivel the microphone to customize its positioning to your exact preferences. You can even take the microphone off the base and speak directly into it for recording or communicating in crowded noisy environments.

        Podcasting gets a voice!

              Comments about Samson Meteorite USB Condenser Microphone:

              The world of Podcasting has grown drastically over that last few years. The fact that anyone at home can have a voice that impacts someone around the world, it quite huge. One of the biggest issues podcasters are facing is poor sound. Samson has been introducing USB based microphones for almost 10 years and very successfully. With their latest effort, they not only made a better sounding microphone, but the price id ridiculously low. I have used this microphone for podcasting and I really like it. It's easy to use and it is clear, what else can I ask for?

              Finally, a mic that gives the rest of us control over our audio content and quality! No drivers necessary, USB connectivity and compatible with most apps and programs. Cleans up the usual noise and gives great sound quality to boot.
