*update: I ordered Samson's software directly from their site in order to improve the experience with their mic. Paid and downloaded, and it installed and opened fine on my Mac. Problem is it doesn't recognize the mic. I wrote back and forth with them. They sent a new mic (same kind), but it still didn't work. They sent a file to "fix" it, but clearly know nothing about Macs and so that didn't work, either. At that point I asked for a refund for their useless software, and then they suddenly disappeared. I would not suggest ever doing business with a company like that.
If you need a good mic for video/audio conferencing or podcasting, or for recording quick song ideas or music, look no further. This thing fits the bill at less than half the price of the nearest competitor, and does it better, IMO, in a better package. (and I've owned the Blue snowball and the Yeti).
I was shocked to see how tiny the mic was when it arrived and thought, “surely, this is not going to sound good.” So I tested it in my house before I took it out on the road 2 days later. It seemed to sound good. So I went with it. The sound was beautiful — pure vocals from people sitting around a table having a discussion. Then, I tested it out at the studio in the office — it kicked the Yeti’s butt. With the Yeti, I needed to do a lot of post-production work to remove background noise and clean up the vocals. With this little guy, the only thing I do in post-production is remove breaths and bad takes.
Now that I’m quarantined at home, I have gone on to buy a small tripod with adapter so that the mic can attach as well as a pop-filter. This has made my home office into a semi-professional studio. I can’t rave enough about this mic’s sound.
My only con to this? The casing — the ball hinge that is on the mic is a bit loose feeling — it get’s wobbly. If they can tighten that up a bit, this would be perfect.
There's a bit of feedback when a cell phone is near. Not sure if this is an issue with all mics, or just this one. Maybe since it's so small it isn't shielded as well as it could be if it were larger.
Overall this thing as been great. Would buy again and would recommend.
I use this with a free program Audacity and OBS. You can make presets for room noise and how much the mic will pic up. The mic has different setting allowing you to pick up ambient noise or just one side of the mic, for when you are recording by yourself. The -10 db is great for when you might have noise in the background, because it picks up sound in closer proximity to the mic.
One of the best price purchases for someone who wants a good quality recording device, that can plug it in and immediately get to work.

Check the video attached.
I recorded a phone-played audio and recorded on Laptop mic and on Samson Go mic.
Check the quality and decide for yourself.
So to start with the sound quality it offers 3 modes and all of them work perfectly. -10db option a great to do voice over and the sound comes out awesome. Yes, it captures little bit of noise but that's not a concern as it can be removed in post processing. So for the price it offers great recording options and good sound quality. Other two options are also great to record unidirectional or all directional sound. So if you are on a tight budget then this mic will fit your need perfectly.
On handling front it is very small and can be connected to your laptop via mini USB cable. So all in all i am very satisfied with the device with only one complain "Build quality"
In conclusion, the retro styling may not be to everyone's taste but I like it. If you want a portable, reliable, good quality, versatile USB mic. This is the one....
Intel STK2m3W64CC Compute Stick (Black) - (Intel Core m3-6Y30, 4 GB RAM,, 64 GB eMMC, Intel HD Graphics 515)
I mainly use this as a microphone to talk to friends whilst gaming and also recording videos for YouTube. The voice quality is great and does really show off the type of sound quality you would expect in much more expensive microphones.
It could still however do a better job or removing background noises. This would only be a problem in the gaming department of things, where it will pick up some fan sounds as well as mouse and keyboard clicking but even at this price point and the audio quality it does give those issues don't effect the fact that its great value for the money.
