Best Buy has announced that it is taking pre-orders right now on the cool Samson USB studio microphones called the Meteor. I mentioned the Meteor back when Samson first announced the microphone in early January around CES time. Best Buy has announced that it is taking pre-orders now on the shiny chrome version of the Meteor and on a limited edition gold plated version of the mic as well.
The chrome version of the mic and the gold one are the same as far as features go. The limited edition gold version of the mic sets itself apart for the standard chrome offering with its 22K gold plated body that is jewelry grade and it comes in a mahogany wood case. Other features of the limited edition mic include a special gold braided USB cable.
Each of the limited edition Meteor mics is numbered and there are only 400 units being made and sold. The gold version of the mic will only be offered at Best Buy stores. Other than the color and limited edition nature both the gold and chrome mics share the same 25mm condenser element, stereo headphone output, and an all metal body with the cool folding legs for standing the mic upright. Pre-orders are underway for the limited edition mic now for $149.99 and the standard version is $99.99 with shipment on both set for April 15.
