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.

                  Unbelievably great sound!! It was plug and use for me, so easy. I use it for recording all my Youtube videos in all situations, acoustic guitar solo, guitar and vocals together. It seems to do the equalization itself. I place it where I think it will pick up everything and it does the rest. Can't go wrong purchasing this mic.

                  First thing you will notice is the weight of the mic. It's not extremely heavy, but it has a great balance between heavy and lightweight. Everything is sturdy on this mic, even the volume knob. The fact that it has its own tripod is a plus, especially if your working with limited desk space. Overall, I can't find anything wrong with this mic. Great buy for a great price.

                    Love this little usb mic. Great for home recordings with my iMac. Use it with garage band and iMovie and get some pretty quality recordings. Picks up EVERYTHING so make sure your using it in a sound controlled room. Great price and I'm happy with my decision to purchase this mic.
