Samson Technologies began designing wireless microphone systems in 1980. Today, we are an industry leader in both consumer and professional audio with three notable brands: Samson, Hartke, and Michael Kelly Guitars. Our products are sold and distributed in over 140 countries worldwide.
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.
At Samson, we strive to simplify the lives of all musicians with accessible, high-performance audio gear that delivers tremendous value. From our USB microphones and micro wireless technology to portable PA systems and accessories, our goal is to lower the barrier of entry for anyone who needs professional audio for any application.
Over forty years Samson has grown from a small two-person operation to a worldwide enterprise, dedicated to innovating new products that will enhance the lives of music and broadcast professionals everywhere.
