Old stuff may look cool, but new gadgetry usually works better. Fortunately, Samson’s Meteor Mic blends the best of both worlds, allowing you to produce quality sound in one eye-catching package. Capable of producing rich audio recordings for any application (think home studios, Skype chats or voice recognition software), it boasts one of the largest condenser diaphragms (25 mm) of any USB mic available.
Its chrome-plated body includes a fold-back leg design that not only looks cool, but can also be adjusted to the optimal position. A stereo headphone output for no-latency monitoring with volume control gives you complete control. No drivers are required, so you can use it right out of the box. And there’s an integrated mic stand adaptor underneath so you can mount it on a boom or desktop stand. Price: about R1 000. Contact The Gadget Shop on 012-346 2726 or visit www.thegadgetshop.co.za
