Reviews around budget (4.71 of 5)

  • 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
  • and your budget is EXTREMELY limited as mine is, then look no further
  • its a great budget mic its better to get a boom for it then use the stand that comes with it tho lol.
  • This is the best budget mic you can get for youtube plus more
  • 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

Reviews around product (4.43 of 5)

  • 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 stops picking up audio and its just a bad product overall...
  • Great product for beginners very good material, no flaws
  • It works great for everything and is a all round good product
  • Nice product, I don't know how to write reviews , but this product is not bad , It's not the best either , but it's good

Reviews around work (4.30 of 5)

  • The mic works perfectly for my home studio and sound quality is very good.
  • UNKNOWN USB DEVICE (Device Descriptor Request Failed) is not working properly
  • Mic works great, and those I talk with say they don't hear the background noise and hiss that my old mic used to pick up.
  • It arrived within a week of my purchase, however the USB B to A cable, that powers the device and allows it to work was missing from the box
  • The microphone works really well and is completely worth the price for the quality you're getting.

Reviews around thing (3.87 of 5)

  • This could be a good thing for many people, but for gaming I do not recommend 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.
  • This could be a good thing for many people, but for gaming I do not recommend it.
  • 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
  • That is a good thing about the mic because I ended up using my studio mic stand for recording.

Reviews around record (3.66 of 5)

  • Brilliant mic with very good audio recording quality, 10/10 would recommend to a friend
  • But overall it's a very good quality microphone, would definetely recommend purchase for anyone who is looking for a cheaper, high quality recording mic
  • Disappointing audio recording, not significantly better than my mic and speakers headset.
  • I'm writing this review to keep from smashing it on my desk over-and-over until it explodes after it ruined yet another recording by filling it with tons of mini-gaps
  • As for the voice quality, it's remarkably good at capturing voices at this price point with a clean and clear recording

Reviews around ambient noise (2.54 of 5)

  • This microphone does a poor job of ignoring ambient noises, such as key strokes on a keyboard.
  • My husband and best friend both mentioned that Blue Microphones were a very high quality product, as well as by looking at other reviews I was ready to make my order
  • Be forwarned though that it is very sensitive, so watch those exterior ambient noises when recording
  • and i relized my mic was as good as if i was recroding it on a potato, so i went out and bought this, thought it would be a rip
  • 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

Reviews around background noise (1.26 of 5)

  • Least background noise, your voice mic technique is crystal clear
  • It picks up a lot if background noise but has great build quality
  • Only complaint would be that it picks up way too much background noise.
  • This Mic is good but it picks up a LOT of background noise
  • It does pick up some background noise even with a pop-filter

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
  • 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
  • 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
