Adorama has the Samson USB condenser microphone for just $29.99 right now. We've seen previous deals for $35, so this is a new low. The next best price on this mic is $37 at Amazon.

This is an old model microphone. The newest model would set you back $75, and you can bet the performance isn't $45 better.

Features include:

  • The USB port provides audio directly to computers without additional hardware and power is supplied from the computer USB port
  • The C01 features a hyper-cardioid pick up pattern, greatly reducing signal and noise at the off-axis sections of the capsule. This results in minimal pick up of indirect signals and higher gain before feed back
  • The Windows SoftPre applet software provides added features that include remote operation over volume control, high-pass filter and phase switch
  • Heavy gauge mesh grill with large 19mm diaphragm
