Go Mic Goes Where You Go.
Further expanding on its diverse line of USB microphones, Samson introduces Go Mic, a portable recording microphone that clips to your laptop. Go Mic is perfect for recording music, podcasts or field recording, but it also makes a great solution for use with voice recognition software, iChat, web casting and even Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). Because of its custom, compact design, the Go Mic can clip right onto your laptop or sit unobtrusively on your desk. Plug and play operation also means it's completely compatible with a Mac OS or Windows, with no drivers required.
High-quality components and meticulous engineering ensure the Go Mic offers remarkably clear, professional audio reproduction. Thanks to its switchable cardioid and omni polar patterns, you can pick whichever pattern is more appropriate for your specific situation. Use the tightly focused cardioid pickup pattern when recording a podcast, acoustic guitar or vocals. Or use the omnidirectional pattern to capture the entire room, whether you're jamming with your band, webcasting with a group or conducting an online meeting with multiple members in a single location. Plus, with a frequency response of 20Hz - 18kHz and a resolution of 16-bit/44.1kHz, you can be sure you're getting professional audio specs in a compact, multi-purpose design.

Also, you can connect any headphones to listen to yourself during the recording.
Great value for the price. Reccomended also for vlogging or podcast.
I bought also a pop audio filter as the CAD Audio EPF-15A Pop Filter on 6-inch Gooseneck
This would be perfect if it came with an angled mini-usb cable as the regular cable sticking out the side is a bit clunky.
Upon startup, Dragon told me that the USB microphone's sound quality was below par, but that I could continue using it, which I did.
Things worked out pretty well, but after a day or two my voice became strained from having to speak forcefully. Unfortunately, my laptop is plugged into a dock which has a loud fan, which the inexpensive microphone was picking up. I decided to get a better microphone, with a more directional sound pattern.
This Samson mike has been a godsend. I now speak in a normal voice, and Dragon's recognition has improved.
The mike comes complete with a stand and a USB cord. Installation is a snap, just plug it into your USB port. Windows XP detected and installed it almost immediately. I did not bother to install the software that comes with the microphone.
One problem was figuring out the three way switch on the microphone. The instruction manual doesn't explain what the cryptic symbols mean, however, I'll save you the trouble. The O-shaped symbol setting picks up sound from all directions. The D-shaped symbol picks up sound primarily from in front of the microphone, and minimizes sound pickup from the rear. This is the setting I wanted. There is a setting in the middle, and I have no clue what that means.
When I started Dragon, it told me the new microphone's sound quality was below par. I ignored that message, and proceeded to use it. Dragon then told me it had to rebuild my user profile in order to use the new microphone. After that was completed, Dragon did not recognize the new microphone. However, it eventually recognized it, and I was in heaven.
In summary, if you are using Dragon and want to save your voice without spending a fortune, this is the microphone to get.
The cord that it comes with is about 2-2.5 feet long, so that might cause some issues if you're using this for a Desktop PC especially if your PC doesn't have a USB port at the front of the PC.
The only reason I would rate this a 4 star instead of a 5 star is that the mic drivers are sold separately for 3.99. I think even for an extra 3.99 its probably a good bargain but I think the seller should make it clearer that the mic doesn't come with the drivers that offer background noise cancelling which really improves the mic quality IMO.
The only problem I've found is it uses USB Mini connector instead of USB Micro connector which now seems to be the industry standard for small electronics. My phone uses micro. My tablet uses micro. My bluetooth headset uses micro. My power bank uses micro. And now my microphone uses mini. Adding another cord to my bag isn't so much the issue as finding the right cord when I need it instead of grabbing the first one I see.
Above all else, the sound quality is incredible regardless of its small stature and I've found it puts other larger mics to shame. Not to mention it's cheaper than many of the others on the market. If you're in the market for a microphone and you travel, buy this mic.
