  • Encapsulate the Sound

    Satellite features two premium 16mm condenser capsules that capture vocal warmth and clarity with a smooth, accurate frequency response. An internal shockmount isolates the capsules from the microphone body, minimizing handling noise, vibration, and table rumble.

  • Satellite-Desktop-Bedroom-Cropped-SA1523

    Polar Power

    Offering three selectable pickup patterns for handling a variety of recording applications. The cardioid setting is perfect for streaming, vocal performances, single host podcasts, or Skype. For conference calls or multi-person interviews where many people are around a table, select the omnidirectional setting. The figure-8 (bidirectional) setting is great for 2-person interviews.

  • 3, 2, 1... Zero Latency

    With zero-latency direct monitoring through its 1/8" (3.5 mm) headphone jack, Satellite creates no delay between the audio you record and the audio you hear. Its Monitor switch lets you turn off direct monitoring while still hearing audio from your computer.

Take complete control of your recordings with the Samson Satellite Broadcast Microphone. With plug and play compatibility with Mac, Windows, Chromebooks, and iOS devices, the Satellite is perfect for content creators on the go and those working from home.
