Everyone tries to podcast using headphones with mic's - usually Plantronics or Sennheiser.

The best way to improve a Podcast - is to buy a better Mic. This the first rule, and easiest.

There are several mics to consider, of which Samson and Rode are the two at the top of the tree.

This podcasting kit is superb, the shockmount is superb, the stand is superb, and I'm delighted that I bought the kit - the quality is sublime.

It has American and European fittings. It's despatched with the LARGER US fittings attached. Now to attach the mic to the stand, you'll need to match up either to American or European fittings, it's up to you, as you get both. If you unscrew the base of the mic, you'll find the neat Europe fittings underneath - its design is brilliant, as it'll work in either continent.

It doesn't have a headjack on the mic, for this you'll need the Rode podcasting kit.

Most important is performance. If you're on XP, you Must download the presoft software. This makes a tremendous difference!! If you're on VISTA, you can't use presoft, so go to Control Panel > Sound > Samson Mic > Properties > take up the level to around 80 or so.

Now it ships with the mic on a low setting, around 6. So you'll initially wonder why the recordings are so quiet, they're still great, but quiet. So take it up to 50, or 80, which ever suits your voice better. This makes so so much difference... but it will now pick up overhead airplanes and dogs barking.

It works basically on plug and play. Straight out of the box. Providing, someone's tipped you off about the American connectors being fitted on arrival. :-)

This is a brilliant product. Many thanks to the previous reviewer, - I had no trouble with sound and installation (Vista). I am not a musician, I record voice audios only for personal/work use, so I cannot comment on an enclosed software (Sonar LE). I use Adobe Soundbooth and it works very well for me (even better now that I have a decent mic). To give you an example of sound quality: my six year old son loves to record little stories and listen to his voice, from another room I heard his playback and had to come back in to check, because there was absolutely no difference between live voice and a playback. So it sounds great and looks great on my table:)!

I bought this set after reading many different reviews on the internet, it seems that the only problem people had with this microphone is that it was too quiet, probably all Vista users like myself. The microphone does come with a low sound setting, so again check the first review here and change the sound settings accordingly. I did however order anti-pop screen just in case. Overall, I am very happy I had enough sense to invest in this product. I can get to some quality work now.

I love this microphone and I have been using it every day since I got it. When I'm not using it for recordings I simply use it for skype calls. It will pick up background noise pretty easily so make sure you have a relatively quiet room.

Fantastic quality, sounds so much better than my previous Samson Meteor, I love Samson as a brand and thought this would be worth a try, as this is such good value for what you get. The set up looks very professional in my opinion, and for around £100 I'm not sure they are many USB Microphones that sound as good.

A really good mic for the price. Recoding volume is low, so you have to crank the gain up else you get a lot of digital hiss when you boost the gain later.
Lacks a headphone jack which is useful for lag free monitoring. It's really important to be able to hear what you are saying, incase you drift of mic.

This mike has done everything I could have wished. The quality has been fantastic for the money, and best of all it has been so easy to set up and use. Recommended.

Easy set up if slightly fiddly registration process. Very capable software included to manage your recordings. Only thing missing was a pop screen. Several recordings completed and very happy with performance so far.

Read some of the other reviews of this, then just went for it. The sales representative quickly sorted out the customs issues and delivery was very quick. After recieving the equipment it was basicly plug-and-play on my Windows 7 computer. No tinkering or nothing, just perfect recording quality for my vocals. Got great feedback on the improved quality both in regular recording and streaming programs such as skype and ventrilo. I highly reccomend it.
