I’ve been using a headset microphone to record the audio component of my YouTube videos for my Skopioeye channel and I decided to improve on the audio quality by using a cardioid microphone. I settled for the Samson Meteor USB microphone because it was on sale and had some good reviews.

This is how the Samson Meteor USB microphone looks likes:

The Samson Meteor USB microphone has been in the market for several years and it’s not a new product. The connector for the USB cable is USB mini-b 5 pin to USB-A.

There is a volume control wheel and mute button at the front of the microphone. The blue light means the microphone is on.

The orange light means that the microphone is on mute.

There is a port on the back of the microphone to plug a 3.5mm headset and the port for the mini-b 5 pin cable.

The Samson Meteor USB microphone has 3 legs that are used as a stand and can be positioned at different angles. There is a 15 mm threaded hole at the bottom (5/8-27 threading).

I couldn’t mount this microphone on a boom arm as the thread on the arm is smaller (8 mm). You need an adapter to do this. I have ordered one and waiting for it to arrive and once I receive it I will let you guys know how it holds up.

I also used the foam sock from an old microphone.

Overall the quality of this microphone is good and you can definitely hear the difference compared to a headset microphone. The only issue with this microphone is mounting it on a stand or boom arm.
