Review the Samson cs1 I use it. It’s a good sounding mic for 40-50 bucks

TheMadScouse says:

I’ll take a printer USB connector over a very small thin and fragile microUSB connector anyday.

Bungard says:

I have a coupon to get the razer seiren for 130. This or that.

GhostAssassinHd says:

wats better xlr or usb?

Igor Sena says:

Hey there. I have the AT2020 XLR version and i love it but i can´t get voice without background noise. The mic is so good that picks everything, even noise from outside my house. I tried recording really low, mouth closer to the mic and then edit with noise removal but i can never get good results and when i manage to get rid of the noise i cant do it without messing the audio. Really frustrated cause this mic is amazing. Do you have any suggestions?

KingCraftPlays says:

I Use the Audio Technica 2020USB and it is a Really good Mic 😉

The Computer Freak says:

is the Samson meteor for €50 better?

DreeGon says:

Is it normal that it picks up all sounds even thoguh its behind it ? mine does that :/

PrimitiveYT says:

I have the same mic yet when I record it has the same sound quality as your camera Mic, what do I do?!

Kona Dey Chakraborty says:

Blue Eaity ?

Moon CS:GO&More! says:

If I were to buy the mic would I need to buy the cable or does it come with it??

ArcticTop5 says:

Nice review, however the XLR + Phantom Powered Version would sound much better. Still great review.

GoldenAgeGamer says:

You can also get the Audio-Technica ATR2500-USB currently for 80 bucks on amazon and it’s just as good as that one…

Matthew Tam says:

By close voice usage how close do you mean? Will it pick up if I’m about half an arm’s length away or less? (Sitting normally in my chair with the microphone beside my keyboard.)

Thexgamer13live says:

your little chart looks like a butt

Deimos says:

I still hear white / buzzing noises through the AT on this video. It pisses me off. If I’m going to pay over $100 for a microphone, I want it not to have shitty horrible feedback.

Jack Broadbent says:

ItsZyph says:

The audio technica at2020usb usb+ up is way better

RaseK says:


MySamaa says:

the new version has controlled on the actual MIC.

CJ Mav says:

i know this is a late comment but does this pick up keyboard and mouse clicking noises or no?

SpaceNigs says:

you should specify in the title that you’re reviewing the USB version of the mic as it is not the same mic as the at2020 XLR

dick twang says:

HunterGaming says:

I would like to use this mic for twitch streaming but how do I edit it’s settings like muting it or changing the bass sound and stuff. I have the mic and power supply

habelebubele says:

Yes, this high end usb connector, that was on literally every usb device like 10 years ago xD

Dinkay says:

Does it have a mute? For when my mom goes in my room telling me to go fucking outside while streaming?
