Record in Style
Meteor Mic is designed to allow you to sound your best wherever your projects take you. The fold-back leg design allows the microphone to be easily transported anywhere and to adjust to the optimal position for any recording application. An integrated mic stand adapter on the bottom of the microphone enables it to be mounted to a boom arm or desktop stand.
