Reviews around budget (4.71 of 5)

  • and your budget is EXTREMELY limited as mine is, then look no further
  • The blue snowball microphone is a very convenient yet affordable budget mic, although the stands that come with it isn't the best, you can always hook it up to a boom arm to make it a bit more useful
  • its a great budget mic its better to get a boom for it then use the stand that comes with it tho lol.
  • Great budget mic, for this price the quality you get from it pretty much good, i using it for gaming (talking with people on skype/discord/teamspeak) and it meets my expectations
  • This is the best budget mic you can get for youtube plus more

Reviews around product (4.43 of 5)

  • Not sure if I just got a bad mic or if this is a bad product
  • Terrible customer service, and while it has great audio quality, it is sadly a worthless product if it doesn't work, and the company refuses to help fix the issue and instead just asks you switch it
  • It works great for everything and is a all round good product
  • Otherwise its an amazing product and I recommend it for anyone.
  • Good product over all look up the specs and what they mean to help you get an

Reviews around thing (3.87 of 5)

  • Very easy to set up nice quality the only negative thing is that do not have a cute button but the voice quality is amazing definitely worth every penny
  • The thing finally killed itself yesterday and refused to transmit any audio.
  • Also, another great thing about this mic is how easily it works with recording software, and the fact that I can take it anywhere, and not feel like I am going to break it
  • This microphone is great and the quality is very good for the price, easy setup, and the only thing that annoys me is the fact that it can pick up background noises.
  • but i have wasted nearly a month to start recording and streaming just to get that thing to sound good,

Reviews around price (3.86 of 5)

  • It was such a great improvement from my previous microphone, and for such cheap price is baffling.
  • The Snowball iCE is a great quality USB Mic for a great price
  • Was not expecting such great sound quality at such a reasonable price
  • I suggest this one price isn't that bad for the quality.
  • But, all in all if you are looking for a great mic for whatever for an awesome price than this is good for you!

Reviews around record (3.66 of 5)

  • Disappointing audio recording, not significantly better than my mic and speakers headset.
  • As for the voice quality, it's remarkably good at capturing voices at this price point with a clean and clear recording
  • is a bit bright, and since I tend to get all up in my mic's business while recording it can be a lil annoying
  • Great recording quality, and I now use it for a desktop mic.
  • This is a great little recording microphone for the price

Reviews around ambient noise (2.54 of 5)

  • I found that not to be the case for this instance as well as I've recorded multiple videos for Youtube and I love the quality of this microphone and i'll probably have this microphone for a long time
  • Be forwarned though that it is very sensitive, so watch those exterior ambient noises when recording
  • Summary: all in all, this microphone can pretty much float your boat in almost any aspect, it’s cheap price should not fool you as it’s quality definitely does not reflect the low price
  • It picks up more ambient noise and you don't have a way to reduce the intake on the mic (like you do on the regular, non-Ice, Snowball, where you can switch it to -10db)
  • He says the sound is much better than what he was getting using his headset mic plus the Snowball does a better job of rejecting ambient noise

Reviews around background noise (1.26 of 5)

  • It does pick up some background noise even with a pop-filter
  • I have it picks up too much background noise and too much hissing
  • Least background noise, your voice mic technique is crystal clear
  • Only complaint would be that it picks up way too much background noise.
  • Summary: all in all, this microphone can pretty much float your boat in almost any aspect, it’s cheap price should not fool you as it’s quality definitely does not reflect the low price

Reviews around know issue (1.00 of 5)

  • Only issue I've had is a known-issue with snowball mics where sometimes blue snowballs in particular do not always play nicely with other mic devices if you have to change between default audio microphones often, and sometimes when attempting to switch back to using the Snowball (especially coming out of Sleep) will find that the audio doesn't pick up until I perform reboot or unplug replug the USB
  • Does not work with windows 10 seems to be a known issue with usb mics that has been around since windows 10 was released.
  • This is apparently a known issue with this mic and USB 3.0 - and not even a reboot seems to fix it

Reviews around pop (1.00 of 5)

  • A "Pop Filter" stops the explosive "P" noises that you hear when you say a "P" word close up into the microphone
  • The only major gripe is the issue with wind and popping but a cheap pop filter would easily fix that
  • A "Pop Filter" stops the explosive "P" noises that you hear when you say a "P" word close up into the microphone
  • Another thing I want to point out is the fact that this microphone can pickup plosives (those popping/distorting sounds microphones usually pickup when one pronounces ‘P’s or other loud consonants) really easily, so I might suggest getting a pop filter as well
  • I recommend getting a cheap pop filter and a Neewer stand if you are streaming/recording
