Does what it says on the box.
Solid design and packs away neatly into a small fabric bag.
The sound is clear and the setup is Plug and Play.

Lee, South Africa. 21 April 2015

Compact - portable - STUDIO QUALITY - crystal clear audio, worth every cent!

Daniel, South Africa. 22 June 2017

I'm writing this review as something of a love-letter to the Meteor. Two years ago, I started a voice over career with a whole lot of ignorance and this very microphone. The ignorance eventually dried up but two years on, the Samson is still going. Recently, I upgraded to a studio quality XLR microphone with a professional interface all sitting in a home studio built and paid for with this punchy little mic. It's weird to claim fondness over a "thing". But seeing it sitting unused in its box, having moved on, the only way to describe what I'm feeling is... gratitude.

Dion, South Africa. 6 December 2016

Really enjoying this microphone. Sound quality excellent, build quality is amazing.

Shaun, South Africa. 7 September 2015

Fantastic product. Takes no time at all to set up, and the zero-latency headphone port is sheer genius. This is perfect for podcasting or for adding voice-overs to videos. Obviously it's not going to kill absolutely every bit of white noise, but for the price, this is brilliant.

Jarred, South Africa. 15 November 2016

So far so good, quite impressed with it's recording quality for such a small mic. Will revise the review in a couple months after I've seen how well it holds up.

Jonathan P, South Africa. 15 February 2016

It worked perfectly for 6 months, however, it stopped due to driver issues. I LOVED this mic prior to driver issues, but now it is useless. Google it and you will see. So many driver issues. So not worth buying.

Willem, South Africa. 14 February 2017

It stopped working after a year. Now it only shows solid red led light. If I keep it upside down the mic still works for some spaz reason. I tried the mic on many computers and laptops after it stopped working.

Andrew, South Africa. 15 September 2014

Mic sounds great. I purchased one for doing podcasts and it's great for that purpose.

Stephan, South Africa. 23 March 2015

Excellent microphone. Superb quality, and it looks really nice. My only problem with it is that the software costs $3, and it is a one time download (seriously, who does that?). If you do voice recording in a rather noisy room, the software does a really good job.

Renato, South Africa. 23 February 2017

I Fully enjoy using the Samson Meteor Mic.
The Mic picks up your voice crystal clear, I watched some online videos with people using the mic. The sounded so soft, however when I got the mic the recording of my voice came through crystal clear and I never felt like I needed to project my voice in order for the mic to pick up my voice.

so simple to set up as well and place anywhere on your desk. At times i don't even have the mic right in front of me. I place it further down the table and people can still hear me clearly in voice chats. Finally the best part of the Mic is that I can be playing games on my speakers and chatting and you will not hear the game sound overlapping onto the mic, which is great cause now I don't have to use headphones when playing games and wanting to chat to other people.

I would recommend this mic if you want don't want to spend a large amount on other microphones. It is perfect for what I need it for.

Michael, South Africa. 18 August 2014

Just got this today and I must say this is by far the best microphone I have ever used. Audio quality is excellent and not a single bit of white noise to be heard. Thank you Takealot and Samson

Quinell, South Africa. 11 March 2015

This Item works perfect, it is at least 50 - 80 cm away from me at my desk and the sound it records is perfectly clear. Anyone looking to get into online broadcasting or pod casting or even making videos on youtube, this works perfectly.

Sheriff, South Africa. 11 May 2017

Very good mic. I use it for gaming and it is amazing. Highly recommended.

Kavir, South Africa. 7 April 2015

Excellent Device,crystal clear recording , great for voice recordings. its sensitive to even the smallest sounds but overall very happy with this product. amazing and compact design...

Nick, South Africa. 22 August 2014

Amazingly good audio recording to my Windows 8.1 computer in a room using any of the apps. Much better than a direct mic. Crystal clear sound

Thoryn Smit, South Africa. 12 November 2016

Great build quality and solid performance. This mic is USB but is a stela for any starter singer podcaster or youtuber and even makes your voice super clear for Skype. Although the cheaper version would be better if you just want it for Skype and gaming

Dave, South Africa. 12 September 2014

This mic is brilliant. I have been using it for a week now and at last, voice recognition software works properly, and my skype conversations are much much clearer, I am told. The difference between a USB Mike and simpler passive mic which connects to the mic input of the audio card is like chalk and cheese when it comes to controlling the input level. This microphone is also astonishingly good at picking up a clear signal when you are speaking nearly half a metre away. I am using it right now to dictate this and I'm sitting at my desk just a shade over 50 cm away from the mike, located near my left shoulder, not even in front of me.

The noise cancelling ability of this microphone is very good as well. I am using normal PC speakers instead of headphones, and there is absolutely no feedback when using Skype.

Really highly recommended.

Marco, South Africa. 12 July 2016

Brilliant performance and quality in a convenient package. Even without a pop-filter, the mic does not pick up pop distortion easily.

It has a comfortable weight, and comes with a threaded hole on its underside for mounting to a mic stand. The mic seems to capture sound optimally when positioned approximately 10-30 cm from the source of a sound, so purchasing an additional mic stand is recommended for ease of use, depending on your personal setup.

The only downside was the included USB cable, which is used to connect the mic to your device. The cable resulted in a quiet, yet noticeable high-pitched whistle in the background of any recording. As soon as I swapped it out for another mini-USB cable, the noise was gone, and recordings are crystal-clear.
Since my cable's issue may have been a factory defect, this product still deserves a very positive recommendation.

Lindes, South Africa. 19 February 2015

Very good recording quality, would recommend.

Colin, South Africa. 15 April 2015

Great Mic - fantastic quality and crystal clear sound. A must for creating video tutorials with screen capture software.

Janine, South Africa. 5 January 2017

Got this mic on a sale at 50% off, which was perfect for me as I was looking for a mic to start recording songs with, gameplays, Skype calls etc to go with the new headset I picked up. This mic surpassed my expectations to be honest, going from a headset mic to this thing is insane. The bass is really nice, it has a crisp, clean sound and I can keep the volume level at around 65% and it easily picks up my voice with no distortion whatsoever. I made a pop filter for it too, and I couldn't be happier with the mic! If you're looking for a solid, crisp sounding, solidly built mic, then definitely pick this one up!

Donavan, South Africa. 21 October 2016

Great product, great service, great delivery, not one problem, will definitely stay a regular customer

Gareth, South Africa. 1 January 2017

I Love the quality but it would have been much better if it was dual functional USB and had normal mic input as well

Stephan, South Africa. 13 December 2016

This is one of the best for the bug microphones. Really great quality!

Jared, South Africa. 2 November 2016

Samson strikes again. These compete with Blue microphones, if not better in some cases. Buy yourself a small little stand and a pop filter and you'll have the best audio possible.

Pieter, South Africa. 25 November 2016


Roxanne, South Africa. 28 November 2016

Excellent product. Works fantastically

Mark, South Africa. 13 July 2017

No issues, quality product.

John, South Africa. 31 August 2016

It works very well for webinars using Webex. Great looking device as well.

Ruaan, South Africa. 8 June 2017

I love the design and it seems to do it's job well enough for a cheap Mic. Just be advised it's slightly older tech and wouldn't work in my USB 3.0 ports, I have to use USB 2.0. This could be unique to my machine, but I haven't had issues with anything else.

space matrix, South Africa. 3 December 2016

amazing quality. perfect for youtubers. i know alot of gamers who use this product. and for the price its beyond amazing

Craig, South Africa. 31 May 2017

Worked fine until my Windows updated and then there was this background hiss that was impossible to get rid of. Not prepared to spend a whole day changing settings to get this thing to work. Sent it back for a refund.

Evan, South Africa. 28 July 2017

Great table top Mic. Build quality is superb and it plugs in and works immediately. I use mine purely for gaming and my friends can hear me clearly. It does pick up the echo in a room so just be aware of that. You might need to do some sound treatment in your room if you want very clean audio, but for gaming and general chat it works perfectly.

Jaco, South Africa. 3 November 2017

Easily the best mic I have owned, the step up from here would be a studio mic. my only issue is that this thing is hyper sensitive and without third party software the background noise can become an issue. it can pick up the ticking from my wristwatch from just over a meter ( not to mention the sounds from 3 rooms down the hall. ). I use mine for voice chat while gaming so i have to turn the recording volume way down to not pick up every little key press or mouse click but apart from that it really is an excellent mic.

Rolf, South Africa. 6 November 2017

Very portable. Solid build quality. Recording quality is clear. The large diaphragm gives pretty decent bass to the recordings as well.

Christian, South Africa. 21 July 2017

Great microphone with great quality. Definitely worth the price.

Wimpie, South Africa. 13 October 2017

Works as advertised. Happy so far...
