For a microphone that’s called the Meteor Mic, Samson’s shiny new aluminum device isn’t nearly big enough. Though I suppose once they enter the Earth’s atmosphere, meteors lose size real fast. Then there’s the question of the Meteor Mic looking more like a Lunar Lander than a piece of rock. In fact, it looks remarkably like a spaceship that just happened to land on your desk.

A retro spaceship, that has a 20Hz to 20kHZ frequency response, cardioid pickup pattern, and records in CD quality. There is also a headphone jack for monitoring levels and recordings, and a 25mm diaphragm. There’s no need for drivers, and the Meteor Mic comes with a USB cable and a soft carry pouch, all for the price of $99.
