Samson G-Track Pro Microphone Review

Designed as a versatile audio tool, the Samson G-Track Pro microphone packs quite a few features into its solid body. From its three polar patterns and on-board audio interfaces, to the sturdy base, the G-Track Pro looks to be a great option for streamers, podcasters, and musicians alike. We’ve taken a look at quite a few microphones lately, and have really come to appreciate the difference a dedicated microphone can make with regards to audio quality when compared to a traditional headset microphone. Let’s see if the Samson G-Track Pro keeps with that trend.

Special thanks to Samson for providing the G-Track Pro review sample!
