I wanted a microphone for streaming on Twitch and creating YouTube videos for work, and I heard it recommended as a good budget beginners option from a well known voice actor. So far I've only been able to use it through USB but I'm impressed with the quality and pleased with my choice, especially for the price!
What's included (Summer 2020):
- Microphone - Foam windshield - Tripod mic stand - XLR cable
- Great sound! - Dynamic cardioid which means it doesn't pick up too much environmental noise when set up correctly - perfect for streaming - Low price - Option to use USB and later upgrade to XLR. XLR cable is included too! - You can plug your headphones right in for monitoring - You can use it with an iPad Pro through the Apple camera adaptor, bonus! I spent far too much time in Garageband playing with the voice effects when I realised this :) - Stand is okay but not ideal for positioning as it will sit too low on a desk etc.
- This type of mic needs to be really close to your face to work well and pick up your voice, unless you want to massively crank up the gain and pick up every other noise in the room too. So order an adjustable stand/boom arm to go with it, and make sure you understand how to set up the mic and position it. Otherwise you'll be frustrated at how quiet it is!
- I find on PC USB connection there's always a very low amount of white hissing/humming noise, but this is easily fixed in OBS/Streamlabs/Audacity. The noise seems absent on iPad.
- Because it's quite a narrow diameter microphone (about 32cm on the handle), it was quite tricky to find the right size shock mount - I had to get one from a dedicated music store as there were no suitable ones on Amazon.
- Weird power issues. When I load my PC, the light will appear on the mic but it doesn't actually seem to be powered on. I have to unplug - plug back in to get it working which is a bit of a pain and will wear down the cable faster. This happens on iPad too so I think it's the mic, not Windows etc.
I've had people complement the sound quality and stick around on my stream so I would definitely recommend this microphone. To be honest even if it doesn't last long, at this price I'd be happy to buy another.
I've hooked this up to a GoXLR Mini and it sounds amazing
Pros: - Amazing sound, especially for the money - Denies background sound better than my condenser mic even though it's still fairly sensitive to my voice - Included XLR cable - Included USB cable - Included decent stand for it
Cons: - It's quite long which gives me less clearance with my keyboard - it's 28 cm with the included XLR cable. I strongly recommend buying an additional right angle XLR cable (90 degree bend) to reduce the length by a few cm or alternatively mounting it from the top (but this way it might be in the way of your camera if you use one) - The included attachment for the microphone which allows it to be held onto a boom arm is really flimsy plastic. Feels like it could snap easily but that only applies to rotation on the boom arm, not adjustment up, down, left or right - those should be fine.
Conclusion: Amazing microphone and definitely very happy with the purchase, especially at this price point. The disadvantages are workable and understandable, not something that would keep me from buying this if I had to do it again.
Will update rating and review if it breaks prematurely, I've only had it for a day.
I have just taken this out of the box and used it for the first time. It is easy to use, no software needs to be downloaded onto the computer. It records like a proper handheld mike in that it only picks up sound very close to the mike. I can tap on my computer which is only 15 inches away from the mike and it did not pick up the sound. I poured water into a glass from the same distance and it was barely audible. The sound quality is excellent for the price. Using the windsock improves the sound slightly though this may not be noticeable. I also have a Thronmax omnidirectional mike which is similarly priced. This is great for picking up all the sounds in the room. However, the sound quality of the Samson is far superior to the Thronmax. This is a great mike for the amateur who wants to record voiceovers but does not have a studio or soundproofing. I live by the main road with traffic and there are birds chirping behind my house, and the Samson mike did not pick up any of these sounds. The stand is cheaply made but this is to be expected at the price. For total stability I can use one of my camera tripods. Very happy with this product so far.
I haven’t had this for very long, first impressions were 1. It has some weight to it, very sturdy and professional 2. Very good for the money 3. USB and XLR connection
I have only used it with the XLR connection because I heard a guy on YouTube reviewing some audio inputs for making videos and he was jumping from gaming headphone mic to this mic on usb connection and then XLR connection and XLR was so warm and crystal clear that it made my mind up to buy it and I am glad I did
I run this through the behringer 402 with the XLR connection and I love it, the best I ever bought, I would use headset mic’s all the time until I heard this and I will never go back to headset mic’s although I just bought the corsairs mh571 headset and the mic on this is also very good but you can have multi inputs setups for software like OBS if u like to livestream or make recordings.
This mic will not pickup background noises, it has to be very close to your mouth the pick up the sound u can put the gain up on a mixer and pick more sound up of course but this mic is for you voice and your voice alone
Very good value package with everything you need to upgrade your WFH sound for Zoom/Skype/Teams/Meet/Jitsi etc. Class compliant USB requires no extra drivers, and its integrated 3.5 mm headphone output gives you zero latency foldback/sidetone. This is useful to avoid shouting with headphones on or talking slower and slower due to a delay in hearing your own voice.
The mic is built to a price point but feels sturdy and works reliably. Decent off-axis rejection and a fine range of operation means you can use the integrated stand to position on a desk next to a keyboard for voice chats.
In Zoom, enable Original Sound with this mic and impress people with the high quality of your audio :-)
Over USB, the noise floor is slightly higher than if you used its XLR output, but it's still absolutely fine for everyday use.
This also works as a USB microphone into my Android Galaxy S9, though sadly not as a microphone for Zoom probably due to how they've coded the Android app to use Android's built-in audio routing. It works fine with all the popular sound recording apps on Android. Perhaps Zoom will fix this in a future release.
Also worth noting, the Samson USB audio chipset does not suffer from any clicking, stuttering and other audio problems, which its nearest competitor does suffer from when used with an Android device over USB (the Audio Technica ATR-2100x USB).
So i was under the impression i would be getting headphones with this pack, due to other reviews & on-line reviews of this product but i didn't ?? The mic and other basic stuff included all fit the bill and the mic is sweet quality but who do i contact about this because amazon doesn't even give me the option to contact seller haha All in all great product just an issues really with the Headphones haha
Update: using the mic now for a couple of months, haven't seen any dip in performance or quality and i think this is a great budget setup for anyone wanting to do podcasting, YouTube or LIVE performance on the cheap, highly recommend.
At half the price of the blue yeti with sound quality that is pretty much the same (you can look up a comparison on youtube), I am amazed with this microphone. Certainly sounds like near-studio quality to my amateur ear, straight out of the box. Definitely suitable as an entry-level streamer's mic. And as if that wasn't enough, it's even portable!
This is definitely the best purchase I've made in a while. The only snag is that it came in a package that had definitely been opened before, so really, I think this should have been sold as 'used -- like new' rather than 'new'. But whatever, still super pleased with it!
Generally OK (with all pros and cons of dynamic microphones) but it has two very annoying problems: - When microphone is unmuted in system settings I get a lot of noise in my headphones plugged into a monitoring output. However, this is neither the microphone/preamp noise nor the headphone amp noise because when I listen to a recording I made earlier and mute the microphone the noise is mostly gone. Turning the switch off on the microphone doesn't fix this issue, it has to be done via microphone slider/mute switch in the system. - After rebooting my PC I have to unplug/plug the USB cable for the microphone to work. Before that everything looks normal but there is no audio/mic.
3/5 stars overall simply because via USB it's very hit and miss if it will work. Tried it on 3 machines and had issues via USB with all 3. Works fine then either doesn't detect properly or very loud noise in the recording and doesn't pick up my voice. Over XLR as I now have it works perfectly and for the money even despite the USB issues this is a great microphone. 5/5 for sound and build quality, 3/5 because of USB thing.
I read reviews before purchasing this and they were booming but in my experience the stand which comes with it is poorly thought out and the microphone itself is super quiet unless you are real close to it maybe thats just the type of the microphone but i expected it to perform ok if i was 30cm away from it but you have to be within 10-15cm for it to pick anything up and thats after increasing the gain to maximum.
Not sure if that means its faulty or not... something to look into i guess.
