Vijay B –
Super Mic. After hunting for months and roaming around Richie street even, I finally zeroed in on this. Order from Amazon and get this bad boy if you want great audio quality.
My research taught me three ways to get great audio:
1. Lavalier mic and Recorder(TASCAM/ZOOM)
2. Condenser Mic and Audio interface/Sound card
3. USB Mic
You will anyway need a PC for audio editing.
Whichever way you look at it, you have to invest decent money for great audio. There are no real shortcuts for amateurs. So I placed my bet on the Samson Go Mic and I am more than happy. Only gripe is, the Indian price much higher than the US price.
I use it for Youtube videos and audio commentary. It is great for video calls as well. Outstanding output really.
This mic looks and feels great – like a tiny version of a professional studio mic. It’s solid and comes with a sturdy case, ideal for travelling. The sound quality is very good – its uni direction does cut out most background noise, so if you’re in a quiet room the ambient noise is undetectable. It takes a couple of seconds for the condenser to kick in, so they is some static at the start of a recording, but this can be cut out. My only slight negative is its USB mini B socket – it comes with a short lead but these cables are getting harder to find these days if you want a longer one. The stand/clip is strongly sprung, so I wouldn’t attach it to the lid of a flimsy laptop, but it stands nicely on the desk and at 30cm away it records fine. A huge improvement over a laptop mic or inline headphone mic.
