Who We Are

Who We Are

In 1980, Samson introduced our first wireless microphone system. Over the years, Samson has become a leader in the wireless field. In the early '90s, we began to expand the reach of our audio products through the development of power amplifiers, mixers, wired microphones, and signal processors. In 2005, we introduced the first professional USB microphones to be used by musicians, broadcasters, and podcast enthusiasts. Our USB microphones are an industry standard for content creators.
