Reviews around set (5.00 of 5)

  • This USB microphone/headphone set are a fantastic starter set for the aspiring podcaster who wants to sound professional from the start
  • I like the set up, but this is the only thing that is crappy with this product.
  • My youtube videos will certainly sound better, too (I'm a voice actor as well).I would definitely recommend this set to anyone who wants to record at a level that sounds better than a home recording.
  • The included Cakewalk software didn't work with Win7, so I have to use Audacity, but all in all, a good set of equipment for voice recording.
  • This is a great set for those that are just starting to record

Reviews around tone (5.00 of 5)

  • A great multiuse mic for someone who doesn't have high-end needs but would like improved tone and clarity compared to cheap mics or built-in mics on your laptop or other device
  • For the value you get a solid set of headphones (well balanced, good tone, differentiates channels, and are comfortable), and a very stylish dynamic microphone that doesn't need phantom power - this is a solid set

  • Sam Ash charges double the price I purchase this for , great thing knowing you saved some money .
  • My favorite thing about this microphone is that it also doubles as a playback device.
  • For the price point, This thing is OUTSTANDING!!I found out about this mic from Podcastage on YouTube
  • Another great thing about this Samson - not to be mistaken with Samsung, is that you can not only plug it directly into the USB port, you can also plug it directly into the GOLD STANDARD XLR port - the standard mic port on mixing boards, or other like equipment

  • I sing online Karaoke on singsnap and the mic works great
  • I wouldn't say it sounds like a $300-$400 mic, but it really sounds good, both on USB and XLR connections, and the direct monitoring (for USB only) works perfectly.
  • The mic works great and the sound is 90% as good as any Heil or other expensive mic--buy one of these first
  • The microphone and earphone are working just fine, and when I saw that a mic pedestal came together, I got surprised
  • I dislike the headphones, although they sort of work
