Samson Meteor Mic
What is it like for conference call ? We're using a webcam for our group Skype conference call but the mic is quite poor so we can do with a separate mic. I've been researching these but can't get a definite answer.
It depends what setup you have. If you're all round a table then this won't be appropriate as it's a directional mic. If there's just two or three of you and you can all sit in front of it then that could work. A much better bet, though, would be the Blue Yeti, which is the little brother to the Blue Yeti Pro that I'm just finishing a review of. The non-pro version offers the same USB interface but has interchangable pickup patterns allowing you to choose from omni-directional, bi-directional, cardoid and stereo, the first two of which are perfect for group recording. It's much larger than this mic but is only around £85.
Thanks for the review Edward! Considering purchasing one of these for my online video tutorials. Other options I'm looking at is the Blue Yeti and the AT2020. Might not need all the features of the BY so this or the AT2020 should be fine.
