Samson’s USB Meteor Mic is Far From Boring
You don’t have to worry about that. While the Meteor Mic won’t outdo some high-end mics in the field of fidelity, it will serve reliably and a few modern features. The first of which you’ll notice is the little tripod on which the mic rests. Those legs close up when the mic isn’t in use and make it ultra-portable (they even include a velveteen carry case!)
However, a little more exciting is the 1.8 inch headphone port you’ll find built right into the mic. You can monitor your own recordings in real time and now what they’ll sound like before you ever play them back.
The mic is also driver-free so you don’t have to worry about software compatibility ruining your recordings.
The mic is a little more pricey than a generic one but still within reason at just under $100.
