Decided to make a gift for a birthday, and he became my second significant purchase on AliExpress.
Where to buy
Microphone Samson Meteor Mic I got for 4252 Russian ruble. For comparison, other Russian Internet-shops the cheapest option is 4900 (includes discount on birthday). Basically the price varies from 6500 to 8000 Tr! Bought here on this page Ali.
The order came within a week. Tracked from the first day on the road. The delivery was carried out from Russia, the firm IML Express. From them I received a SMS that the product is already in the issuing center.
The product is Packed in a paper mailing package with bubble wrap inside. The original black box was damaged on one side. Inside I found a certificate with a label of the manufacturer.
There was also listed a website where you can register your purchase and download additional software. Product registration, unfortunately, is not available to residents of the Russian Federation. Software, which offers firm SAMSON — paid.
A bonus was the velvet bag, taking the microphone with him.
Installation and configuration
Installing the microphone does not require additional knowledge or skills. USB cable included, just plug into PC and start to use it. In my case, something went wrong and the PC identified the MIC as headphones. Insert the plug from the speakers into the headphone Jack on the microphone, it worked.
The objective of this device was good to uncover low frequencies of the voice, with it he did a good. Samson Meteor Mic revealed in my tone pleasant low tone.
Condenser microphone, so be prepared for the fact that it picks up even very quiet sounds from other rooms, but when you say close, the noise is suppressed.
The appearance is simply out of the competition. Shine from all sides. Not a single scratch or scuff. Full metal body — weight confirms this. The legs are rubberized, you can customize yourself. There is a quick off button and volume control.
In General, the Samson Meteor is a practical option for a budget entry: stream, voice, and just communicate in Skype. Again, took on Aliexpress here.
