The stylized Meteor Mic by Samson

A microphone with quality and function that takes you back to a time of smoke-filled speakeasies, fedoras, well groomed crooners and high balls of bourbon. The Meteor Mic is a USB microphone brought to you by the fine folks at Samson, featuring a retro design that emulates the large bulky mics music idols used to sing with in an era of style and simplicity. And Conan O’Brien. Chrome with three adjustable legs so you can simply place it in front of yourself or your guitar to record that song you’ve been dying to put on a romantic mix tape for your girl… or not. Maybe you just want to record brain-numbing vlogs commenting on the latest episode of Jersey Shore — up to you. The Meteor Mic has one of the largest condenser diaphragms, smooth frequency response and 16-bit, 44.1/48kHz resolution, which will help you achieve a sound difficult to believe came from your laptop. Aside from its appealing retro look — and extreme convenience of connectability with just about anything from an iPad to headphones — the high quality and versatility make the Meteor Mic a tough USB mic to beat. And with a pricetag of only $99, what more you could want? It even comes with its very own carry pouch.
