・GO MIC
Samson’s best-selling and most popular product

Great Audio on the Go
Perfect for web conferences, online hangouts, podcasting or laying down some vocal tracks, the GO MIC’s range of functionality extends beyond typical USB microphones. The integrated clip design allows you to mount the microphone directly onto your laptop or be used free standing on your desk.
Capture Stunning Sound
GO MIC includes two microphone pickup patterns, cardioid (unidirectional) and omnidirectional. When set to cardioid, the microphone captures sound in front of the microphone and rejects sound from the sides and back. This picks up more of the performer’s sound in relation to the sound of the room and is great for single person podcasts or streaming. When the GO MIC is set to omnidirectional, it will pick up sound in a 360° pattern around the microphone. This can be used to capture a group of people around a table for a multi-subject interview. Additionally a -10 dB pad provides additional headroom for performers who tend to project a little more and protects the audio from overloading
The Ins and Outs
GO MIC features plug and play operation, which means it’s compatible with Mac or Windows, no drivers required. Simply connect the included USB cable and start creating. It also includes an 3.5mm headphone output with zero-latency monitoring, ensuring no delay between the audio you’re recording and the audio you’re hearing.

Portable USB condenser microphone with built in tripod stand.

Studio Sound
Sleek and stylish, METEOR MIC offers remarkable tone and clarity. The cardioid pickup pattern minimizes off-axis sounds, focusing on the area directly in front of the microphone. Despite its compact size, the METEOR MIC houses a 25mm studio-quality condenser capsule, which delivers a smooth, rich sound that is never harsh.

The mic offers three selectable pickup patterns (cardioid, omnidirectional and bidirectional) for handling a variety of recording applications, whether you’re capturing one performer or many.

Simply connect the mic to your preferred device via the included USB or Lightning cables, and you’re ready to record. You can also connect headphones for zero-latency monitoring of the mic input.

<Comment from Michinori Isohata, CEO of FOX.INC>
Until now, Samson’s microphones have been mainly used for recording by singers, with the target users being professionals and professionals. However, the new coronavirus has led to an increase in remote meetings and a change in microphone applications. Many people are stressed out by choppy audio and difficult to hear during their daily remote meetings due to noise. Of the lineup we are pleased to announce, the GO MIC is particularly recommended, and while it is very compact, its functionality is well secured and simple to use. It is the perfect product for teleworkers. We also have a variety of other models for different applications and we invite you to experience the Samson microphone.
