I have a USB mic that I use every now and again. I got it for making video reviews a long time ago and ended up using it for podcasts, talking with people on MMORPG games without having to wear a headset and for diction software. The thing ended up being a really good buy. Samson has a new mic that looks way cooler than mine called the Meteor Mic.
The new mic is shiny chrome and looks retro. The stand adjusts and can fold up or be adjusted into different positions to hold the mic just how you want it to be. The Meteor comes with the USB cable and a soft carry pouch. No drivers are needed for use and it has a headphone jack so you can monitor what is being recoded.
The thing will work for home music recording, podcasting, VoIP and all sorts of other uses. The diaphragm is 25mm and it has a cardioid pickup pattern. The frequency response is 20Hz to 20kHz and it records in CD quality. It will hit stores on April 15 for $99.
