Pre-order the Samson USB Meteor Mic at Best Buy, limited-edition gold-plated model available too



Best Buy has the Samson USB Meteor Mic online and available for pre-order, with a special, limited edition gold-plated model available in addition to the standard chrome.


As an exclusive Best Buy offer, 400 units of a limited edition version will be produced and available on April 15th. Each microphone will feature jewelry grade, 22k gold-plating that is four microns thick and will be packaged in a numbered, mahogany wood case that includes a high-quality, braided, gold-flashed USB cable. The gold version of the mic is listed at $50 more than the chrome one.

I saw the Meteor Mic in January at CES and was very impressed with the design. You can read more about it in my previous post. I will be receiving one for review at some point and will do some audio tests with it once I get it.
