Samson Meteor Mic

 

Great voice quality. Attractive design. Portable. Can connect to the iPad for use with Garage Band

Not-quite-as-great musical recording quality. Unidirectional mic makes portability less useful. Fold-out stand gets in the way when mounting the mic on a larger stand

Solid voice quality and a compact build make the Samson USB Meteor Mic a good choice for a portable podcast/Skype microphone, but it's not the best choice for music recording.

Great value, but not without flaws

 

The Samson SR850 can be found so pretty cheap and are great value headphones. They are semi-open, so there's a bit of sound leakage but makes for a better listening experience. The sound itself is quite good for how much it costs. That said, it is not...

Excellent budget headphones: VERY comfortable

 

I'm a professional musician; sound is my thing and being a career pro, I often come up against budget restrictions when making gear choices. Over the years I have learned that more $ seldom equals better performance. It creates the illusion of "better"...
