Some of the highlights of our review:

Ultra Portable: The Samson Go Mic is really meant for people who travel a lot and need a recording microphone when traveling. Its compact size makes it very ideal for traveling podcasters, journalists, vloggers or people who need an exceptionally-good microphone for Skype. However, that’s not to say that it isn’t useful for everyone else. The Samson Go Mic is a great microphone for anyone looking to record great sound directly to their computer.

Forget the Pre-Amp at Home: If you are a person who travels a lot, then you’ll certainly appreciate the feeling of forgetting something at home. The only difference with the Samson Go Mic is that you can actually afford to forget your Pre-Amp or Phantom power at home and not worry about being unable to record. The Go Mic plugs directly into the USB port of your computer and is pretty much plug and play with both Mac or PC. There are no drivers required.

Amazing Sound, Period: During the course of our review of the Samson Go Mic, we found that the little Samson offered the best sound quality of any microphone in its class. The Go Mic has three recording modes (Cardioid, -10dB Cardioid and Omni-directional). The -10dB cardioid setting produces the clearest and warmest recording quality. But that’s not to say that the other two modes are bad. The other two modes also offer sound quality that meets and exceeds the quality of any microphone at that price point.

The Final Verdict: At the price (about $40) you definitely cannot go wrong. The Samson Go Mic is an extremely portable microphone packed with lots of nifty little features and exceptional sound quality. We are extremely pleased by the performance of the little Samson Go Mic.

Excellent product. I bought this mic to make some quiz videos for kids, and I must say that this pocket dynamo is an absolute value for money!

Out of all the reviews on YouTube I’ve watched, this has got to be one of the best, clear explanation with a demo. One thing I wonder, will this pick up the noise of my keyboard and mouse?

Alexander Rex Evensen says:

This sounds great, and that you can place it on top of your monitor makes it excellent in use for what I have in mind (two friends I play with that has crap sound from their microphone :P). Thanks for the test, it’s very useful 🙂
