Samson’s Meteorite is a universal solution for capturing high-quality recordings on a computer, ideal for podcasting, creating audio for YouTube videos and recording music. For only $39.99, this sleek microphone also vastly improves our ability to communicate with friends, family and business associates on programs like Skype, FaceTime and other VoIP software.
Meteorite presents an immediate improvement over the computer’s internal microphone, bypassing the computers standard mic capsule and noisy soundcard, in favor of the Meteorite’s studio-quality 14mm capsule and dedicated audio conversion path. Meteorite’s larger, professional capsule provides a smooth, flat frequency response to capture the natural characteristics and dynamics of human voice.
Meteorite mounts to a magnetic tilt and swivel base to customize its positioning to exact preferences. Its even possible to take the microphone off its base and speak directly into it for recording or communicating in crowded noisy environments.
There’s no need to install drivers, as the mic can be directly connected to any computer via its integrated USB cable. Also, when combined with the iPad using Apple’s Lightning USB Camera Adapter or Camera Connection Kit (30-pin), the Meteorite is a great tool for recording on the go.

The Go Mic Direct’s custom, ultra-compact design features a built-in USB connector that allows the mic to be plugged directly into a Mac or PC without blocking surrounding ports. In addition, the connector is retractable for maximum portability and safe transport when not in use. Compatible with both Mac and PC, Go Mic Direct offers convenient plug-and-play operation with no driver installation required.
