    Good microphone for a reasonable price

    • problem with returning the sound via headphones

    Good microphone for a reasonable price. I do have a problem with the sound returning through headphones; sometimes one of the channels drops, sometimes both. Pulling out the USB and plugging it back in helps then; the connection is restored.

    • USB cable.
    • Easy to configure.
    • Cable too short.

    So far still perfect. Few comments, and definitely recommended

    A very good microphone for eg novice YouTubers.
    • Very good sound quality
    • Headphone jack
    • Plug and play
    • Nothing to complain about

    Just a very good microphone, very suitable for YouTube, for example. Plug and play.
    In short: a good microphone for YouTubers, with a good price-quality ratio.

    Very good quality for little money
    • Very good sound quality
    • Easy connection via USB
    • Headphone jack
    • Not expensive
    • Even touching cable while recording = unwanted sound

    This is a very good microphone and not expensive at all compared to other (semi-) professional microphones. Very suitable for recording voice-overs with video, podcasts, etc. Connection via USB is very easy, and it is handy that there is a headphone connection so that you can hear the sound directly while recording. You should not touch the microphone or even the USB cable while recording as you will hear that directly on the recording.

    Great for a starting studio
    • Easy to use
    • Good size
    • Easy to attach to a stand
    • white noise can be fixed with the Samson sound deck program
    • Quite a lot of white noise

    I like it because it's simple and doesn't cost too much

    Highly recommended!
    • Easy to install
    • Pure quality
    • Loud
    • Clear manual
    • Paid software

    This product was a very good buy. I suffered from some static/noise at first, but after buying Sound Deck (Samson's recommendation), this was completely gone and the microphone was perfect. Unlike my previous microphone, this one is loud and clear. There is no noise to notice, and all the words come out fine. I do recommend a pop filter, because the pops can be heard quite quickly. Furthermore, this one is definitely recommended!

    Good sound without ambient noise.
    • Also turns off the computer's speakers when you plug in the microphone. Can of course be adjusted via audio devices

    Microphone is immediately recognized by computer
