Having misplaced my Blue Snowflake USB mic, I decided to give this recently introduced, competitively priced USB mic from Samson a try. (Samson is maker of the highly popular and effective Zoom personal digital recorders--the H2 and the H4n.) It's an attractive, fully outfitted piece of equipment, with handsome packaging (a small black box and zippered carrying case with aesthetics apparently inspired by iPod). It's smaller and lighter than the Snowflake--more diminutive than the picture would suggest. Yet the audio quality strikes me as being somewhat warmer and richer, favoring the bass frequencies of spoken narration more than the Snowflake, which has slightly cleaner and clearer definition at the treble end.

The Samson Go was seen instantly by my iMac, and recording was as advertised: "Plug n' Play." The mic is somewhat more sophisticated than the Snowflake in terms of "latency" settings (it permits direct monitoring via headphones connected to the mic to insure no delay, or lag time, between transmission and reception), and there's a three-way switch for directional patterns (the manual could be clearer, however, about the difference between "cardioid" and "cardioid 10 pad.") No matter. The mic performed virtually flawlessly right out of the box, with no tampering with the switch.

It's extremely sensitive, slightly more so than the Snowflake. Yet I was unable to avoid the "P" popping sounds, regardless of how close I got to the mic and muted my consonants. So be prepared for the addition of some sort of "pop filter" device (either one sold on Amazon or a self-designed one, using a nylon stocking).

The mic can be clipped to the top of a computer screen or mounted on a mic stand (using a supplied adapter or ordering a properly sized one from Samson).

There are a lot of great reviews here already, which prompted me to purchase this mic, but it seemed the number of reviews for my particular use were lacking, so here's another review from a singer-songwriter perspective.

Background: I have been playing music and writing songs for years, and I'm a gearhead so I already own tons of recording equipment in all shapes and sizes. You name a recording interface, I've probably owned it at some point, and I currently have a fully functional pc recording setup with a rackmounted pc and USB interface.
That being said, I can't carry my setup around in my pocket. Inspiration can strike at anytime, and this mic is so small that I can put it in the case and fit it in my pocket with my cellphone and keys. The pics offer no perspective on how small it really is, but to be sure, this thing is TINY.
I use REAPER as my DAW, and having used so many interfaces, I've done a fair share of troubleshooting to get devices to be recognized and function as they should, but this mic is truly plug-n-play. The mic has the omni switch on the side, which is a great feature and makes a world of difference depending on your application. The mic is super hot, and picks up sound beautifully in both modes. My intention was to have a small mic to plug in and record rough versions of "in progress" material, but just for kicks I plugged some earbuds into the headphone out to check out the direct monitoring. It works as advertised, but what I did not realize is that the pc sees the Go Mic as a mic input AND an audio output, so the headphone out can be used to monitor the WET signal from the DAW, which is GREAT news, since I like a little reverb and compression whenever possible, and it's nice to be able to eq to my taste.

In the realm of digital recording, the idea of a USB-powered condenser mic was really just an inevitability, but Samson has truly impressed me with their Go Mic. This little microphone has a surprisingly rich sound to it, and captures an impressive dynamic range. The transducer is a mere 10mm, but don't let the diminutive size of it fool you; you can capture some high-quality, professional sounds with this microphone. I use mine primarily as a to-go mic for my laptop recording studio, capturing vocals and guitars with it.

One caveat I would like to mention about using this device in a multitrack context: the use of the default driver for this device is definitely not recommended. Check out ASIO4ALL, a free driver that recognizes your audio hardware and gives them a generic but highly effective ASIO driver, which cuts down on latency big time. Definitely avoid the default Windows driver if you're looking for performance.

The great thing about this microphone is that it has a headphone jack on it, which further reduces the effects of latency in a multitrack context. While it does not reduce latency per se, it can remove the latency between what you hear out of your speakers, making multitrack recordings well-timed. The headphone jack was the deciding factor between this and the Blue Snowflake, which is similarly priced. I have no experience with the Snowflake, but I know it does not have a headphone jack and its clip with which to mount the mic on a laptop is free-hanging, not spring-loaded like the Go Mic. The thing I love about the Go Mic's clip is it will attach to either the top or the side of your LCD screen, which is handy.

If you're a musician who travels with any frequency, definitely look into the Go Mic.
