4.0 out of 5 stars Small, cute, pretty good, August 25, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samson Go Mic Portable USB Condenser Microphone (Electronics)
I just received the Samson Go Mic today. First impressions:

1. beautiful packaging (very Apple-like)
2. Awfully cute, small condenser mic
3. Sound quality is remarkably good

I tested the mic and was surprised at how clean it sounded. Lacks some bass unless you're right up on it, but is perfect for on-the-road podcasting, on-line meetings or webinasrs.

Con:
Only one, the clip is really meant for a thin laptop screen and not a regular monitor. So that limits the usefulness to remote uses.

For the price, it's one of these gotta have toys that's actually a real mic. Good job Samson!

Hi, I'm wondering how you tested the Go Mic to get that "clean" sound you mentioned. The way I want to use it is for better recording when I'm listening to lectures and taking notes, for which I use Microsoft Word's "audio notes" feature. It's not recording clearly through Word, there's a pretty loud "shhhhhh" sound in the background when I do it, and I can't figure out how to get rid of it.

There's a -10db setting (located on the side switch) that reduces the background noise, but if the room actually is noisy, it'll pick that up.
