What customers say about "Features"
Samson Meteor Mic USB Studio Microphone
  • The Samson Meteor Mic is a USB condenser microphone with a large diaphragm and a cardioid pickup pattern.
  • Great cardioid microphone, especially for voiceovers.
  • Great frequency response. Sharp, clean sound and easy to use. Excellent from any direction and professional results. No hassle set up for my computer. Very pleased with the purchase.
  • It also has a relatively flat frequency response, which is good, but only records CD quality audio, which could be better. However, for the price, the audio quality you get is great.
  • The audio is clear, crisp, and has a great frequency response.
  • The only thing I would complain about is the fact that with this microphone you're stuck with cardioid.
  • The amount of noise in the background is a bit disappointing, there's very little noise cancellation if any. My computer isn't far from me and it's rather large, so getting the sound of computer fans out of my recordings require a little post modulation.
Blue Yeti USB Condenser Microphone
  • Simple to use and records great sound. I use it to record podcasts and the multiple recording patterns are a godsend. I love this mic.
  • There are manual switches for both gain and recording patterns - stereo, omni, cardioid, and bi-directional.
  • I bought this to use in a school music classroom to record rehearsals. I have used it for choir and band and the recording quality is great. I have also used it to record solo piano and vocal music.
  • It’s a very sensitive microphone, it picks up a lot of low and mid frequencies.
  • Great all around sound quality for a USB mic. great low end response as well as speaking voice. I was very happy with the quality of the recordings it produced.
  • Amount of background noise and static detracts from what should be professional quality.
  • Minimalist mic. This mic is for solo use. No real adjusting.
