I own this mic and bought it for home audio - recording voice over tracks in videos I make and for podcasting. When I bought it, I didn't realize the difference between condenser and dynamic microphones. The Meteor microphone is a condenser mic and picks up EVERYTHING. Every noise like the air flow from the furnace, pet walking by, background noises, arm rest squeaks from my computer chair, your breath, saliva in your mouth, etc. Without additional software (even with the gain turned down) or hardware, it's hyper sensitive. I'm still playing around with it to find a good middle ground to eliminate background noise. In hindsight, I would've bought a dynamic USB mic for my purposes. If you have a sound proof studio, I bet it'd be unbelievable. The headphone jack is awesome! The mute switch on the mic is great! The stand is nice so you can position it perfectly. It records my acoustic guitar nicely (minus the above comments) in Garage Band on acoustic steel string setting. It's small and has a nice carrying case with it. You need a pop filter with it as well even with the built in windscreens. I'm playing with Garage Band on my Mac and it's settings to see if it's possible to eliminate the sensitivity. When doing vocals, the acoustic guitar setting on Garage Band seems to work better than the vocal settings for background noise (?). Also, I'm about 12" away from it like Samson recommends in their manual. Pointing it away from you at a 45 degree angle helps somewhat like Samson recommends. Overall, a great mic. It does what Samson says it will. You just may need additional hardware and software, so plan for that.

Everyone seems to think that usb takes away from the recording quality. This mic keeps all the quality from the recording, and is super easy to use. The mic even has an audio output, so you can set your computer to output its sounds to the mic headphone out. It is small compact and amazing quality.
