PLAY AS YOU PAY
Ideal for podcasting, webcasting, Skype chat, or any kind of quick on-the-go recording scenario, the Samson GoMic USB microphone is a handy little mic that will go the distance for a variety of applications. Position this compact microphone on your desk, or clip it on your laptop, and enjoy no-nonsense ease of use. As a USB microphone, the GoMic connects directly to a Mac or PC, allowing you to record anywhere your computer takes you.

The Ultimate Budget Mic

If you're in need of a do-it-all microphone for desktop recording or mobile recording, the Samson GoMic is second to none. Packing Samson's legacy of microphone technology into a bite-sized, affordable unit, the GoMic puts quality recording within reach of everyone. The GoMic USB condenser microphone offers 44.1 kHz/16-bit resolution recording, plus a wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 18 kHz.

Switchable Omni and Cardioid Pickup Patterns

Thanks to its switchable cardioid/omnidirectional pickup patterns, the portable mic is able to capture wide or narrow sources. Try cardioid mode to pick up focused vocals and acoustic instruments like the guitar. Flip it into omnidirectional mode to pick up 360 degrees around the microphone -- perfect for recording whole-room ambience, round-table discussions, interviews, and more. An 1/8-inch headphone output allows for convenient monitoring no matter where you record.

Versatile and Extremely Easy to Use -- Just Add a Computer

When you're tied to your desk, the GoMic is your best friend for creating webcasts and podcasts, working with voice recognition software, conducting interviews, doing voiceovers, video conferencing, and more. Equipped with professional audio reproduction specs, the USB microphone works well for recording music, too -- think demos, practice sessions, capturing songwriting ideas, and so forth.

The Samson GoMic is completely plug-and-play, meaning it's compatible with any USB-equipped computer, with no drivers required. Recording a gig is as easy as plugging it into your laptop and saying, "Go!" Use it with your favorite DAW or audio recording software, or use the included Music Creator software. The GoMic really does pack everything you need for no-fuss recording.

Versatile and compact, Samson's GoMic is the perfect companion mic for digital/desktop musicians. It comes with a USB cable, zippered carrying case, and Music Creator software.

Features:

- Portable USB condenser microphone
- Plug-and-play operation with Mac or PC, no drivers required
- Compact design that clips to a laptop or sits on a desk
- Transducer type: condenser, pressure gradient with USB digital output
- Frequency response: 20 Hz to 18 kHz
- Switchable cardioid or omnidirectional polar patterns to accommodate any application
- 44.1 kHz/16-bit resolution recording
- 1/8-inch headphone output for listening while you record
- Works well for voice recognition software, iChat, Skype, VoIP, and webcasting as well
- Includes USB cable, zipper case, and Music Creator software

Samson was one of the original players in the USB microphone game -- and they've crammed all that know-how into a super-portable package with the GoMic. Grab one, throw it in your laptop bag, and be ready to record that boardroom meeting or interview!

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Big functionality, little package, great deal"
Sound: The sound is great for such a little, low cost microphone. I use it to record acoustic/classical guitar. I have recently used my friends large diaphragm condenser mic, and the Go Mic doesn't sound quite as full as that mic. It is nice and clean sounding, and does provide a recording that is very close to true sound. Feature: Multiple patterns that pick up well like they are supposed to, a nice solid base to set it down, and a clip for a laptop - this little mic is nicely set up. I also like the ability to directly monitor via headphones. Ease of Use: Very intuitive, just plug it in and wait a minute until it tells you that your device is ready. Quality: Seems sturdy. It is still a small instrument and should be treated appropriately, but it feels very solid. Value: I could not find something even close for the price. Manufacturer Support: I have only dealt with Cakewalk support (for the included Music Creator LE software). I have had some problems getting the software to work correctly on my Windows Vista 32 bit with SP3. But their email support has been good, they respond quickly. The Wow Factor: It is very nice looking, and the "cool" factor is high. My friend who has the large condenser mic, and other serious recording gear, was very impressed by this little mic. Even the case that it comes with is very nice. Overall: I expect to use this mic for a long time to come. I use it to record practice sessions, lessons, audio for videos, and possibly for some demo audio tracks. It is easy to carry, easy to use, and just plain works. I needed something to record clean, quality, true sounding audio, and this mic just works!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
