Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I reviewed several different USB microphones and decided that I would try the Samson Meteor. I needed a microphone that would be good for voice-over for animation. The Meteor exceeded my expectations. Clear and cancelled out extraneous noise. I purchased another for my brother who is getting into professional voice-overs as I was very impressed with the Meteor. Well made, this is a quality microphone. I will recommend it to others.
Ease of Use
The sounds were excellent, one of the truly plug and play I've run across in a long time.
