Samson has released the Go Mic Mobile wireless microphone system. This new offering claims to connect directly to smartphones, without the need for adaptors or interfaces, and is capable of capturing quality audio, making it suitable for filmmaking, podcasting, vlogging, live streaming and YouTube production.
