    If you want something better than the microphone on your computer then the Samson Go Mic Direct is for you.

        Needed something simple and straight-forward for some voice-over work. This is so easy, mac and PC compatible. No drivers to load and the sound was great. Better than my built-in mic on my laptop.

          Comments about Samson Go Mic Direct - Portable USB Microphone with Noise Cancellation Technology:

          Have an idea you want to record quick? A song? A speech? The Samson Go Mic Direct is perfect for recording quick things with high quality sound. I've used it to record with my MacBook Pro when I have a quick song idea but don't feel like setting up my bulky condenser microphone and interface. While I haven't used it for any kind of podcasting or video conferencing, I have used it with the built-in camera to record a video of myself performing an original song. The sound quality was much better with the Go Mic Direct compared to the built-in microphone. For the same price you can also buy the original Samson Go Mic which you can clip to the top of your laptop or can sit on a flat surface which I think gives you better options than the Go Mic Direct. Nevertheless you still get great quality sound at an inexpensive price! This is a real hands-on product review from Anthony @ Sam Ash in Huntington, NY.

                        Super easy to use USB mic that sounds way better than basic mics built into your computer. This is a great piece to buy if you are podcasting or Skype-ing with friends. Regular speaking applications work great for this, but I would not recommend for singing. The noise cancelling ability is great for environments that might have background noise. It is very compact and easy to use.

                          Comments about Samson Go Mic Direct - Portable USB Microphone with Noise Cancellation Technology:

                          I use the product mainly for speech-to-text (dictation) on a Mac Mini, which has no internal microphone.

                          The sound clarity is great, and the noise cancellation software seems to work well.

                          The only problem I have encountered is that the Samson has a USB connector that slides in and out of the base for travel. When slid out to its furthest extent, it's still shorter than a standard USB connector. It's not long enough to make a connection to the USB ports in my Mac Mini or my MacBook Pro. I have to interpose a USB extension cord to get the mike to connect to my computers. I probably get less background noise that way anyway, but the fact that I *have* to do it is a negative.

                                Loved how this small condenser sounds. I like to record a lot of demos and I was really happy that for the kind of mic, it handles a decent amount of spl. The demos sound audible and pleasant. Really easy mic to use and well worth the purchase.
