Blue Microphones' Yeti Pro a 'lil rich for your blood? Have a gander at Samson Technologies, who is also introducing a new USB microphone to usher in the year 2011. The company's foldable USB mic -- better known as the Meteor Mic -- looks a lot like any number of retro mics you might find in an older recording studio, or any number of brand new ones designed to look just like the old ones we just mentioned. There's also a stereo 1/8-inch headphone output for no-latency monitoring, not to mention a headphone volume control and a trio of legs to tinker with. There's even a microphone mute switch for those who prefer to grumble while the boss blabbers on, and it'll be out and about in Best Buy this April for $99. Demonstrative video is just past the break, if you really need to enlighten yourself further.

Las Vegas, NV – January 06, 2011 – Today at CES, Samson introduced Meteor Mic, the universal solution for recording music on your computer. Perfect for your home studio, Meteor Mic is also ideal for Skype, iChat or voice recognition software.

Featuring a large condenser and all chrome-plated body, Meteor Mic's fold-back leg design allows for the optimal positioning for any recording application from acoustic guitars and vocals to speech. Meteor Mic also has a stereo 1/8-inch headphone output for no latency monitoring and a headphone volume control. In addition, a microphone mute switch gives you audio privacy while video conferencing.

"Meteor Mic's compact design is unique, but don't let its size fool you. With our largest condenser, everyone will be blown away by the audio quality of their recordings," says Scott Goodman, President of Samson.

Since there are no drivers required, you can start recording with your Meteor Mic right out of the box, as the mic can be directly connected to any computer and is compatible with most computer-based digital audio software. A USB cable and protective carry pouch are included.

Meteor Mic will retail for $99 and will be available in stores April 15, 2011, including all Best Buy locations nationwide.
