Reviews around sound (4.31 of 5)

  • You have to have the microphone close to you to have a good sound.
  • The sound quality is great and her videos sound professional.
  • Very good microphone for a USB mic that pics up good sound from a computer
  • The sound from this mic is so good that I do not imagine it could be better
  • The sound quality is great, but it still picks up my keyboard and mouse sounds loud and clear even when it's in cardioid mode and facing the complete opposite direction.

Reviews around thing (3.97 of 5)

  • Only thing I dislike is the lack of an output other than USB, but that isn't what this microphone is intended for anyway.
  • Only negative thing about this mic is the little red light in the front that lets you know it is on is a tad bright
  • The included stand is a worthless little thing that will aggravate the hell out of you
  • But once I started to use it for recording audio, the thing really works
  • The Blue Snowball is both a great microphone and a thing of beauty

Reviews around record (3.97 of 5)

  • It is great for Skype, or recording something live, but not too good for the studio where you need a mixer
  • You do have to be close to it while recording, to really get that nice clear voice recording, but that works for me
  • its a great mic and everything sounds really clear when recording I haven't had any problems at all.
  • Really great quality, easy to use with 3 simple settings for studio recording, noisy eviro recording and for interview Omni directional capture
  • There is some lag when recording with live listening playback but everything records on cue

Reviews around design (3.86 of 5)

  • I love the design and the texture and look of the brushed aluminum
  • This is a great little microphone, and better yet, I really love the design of it
  • As a matter of fact I gave it 2 Stars for the fact that it is pretty solid and well designed (On the outside)The Mic itself has very bad noise in the background, despite the fact it is completely quit in here
  • I make music as a hobby and this microphone is one of my favorite for its sleek design and texture
  • Four stars instead of five because it's a somewhat awkward size/shape design for a desktop

Reviews around snowball (3.78 of 5)

  • , the Snowball WILL outperform it for the same price or less.
  • The blue snowball isn't super expensive for a mic but has quite the professional sounding quality that you'd want
  • I started with the Blue Snowflake and, to be honest, didn't notice any difference in the sound of the spoken voice with the more expensive Blue Snowball microphone
  • the Blue Snowball Microphone met, but certainly did not exceed my expectations.
  • The yeti a better mic, however that does not mean that the snowball is garbage

Reviews around metal (3.50 of 5)

  • Its not made to stand on a desk or similar surface, and it's unforgiving hard-metal makes it impractical to clip the gizmo to any but the thinnest computer screens
  • AWESOME product, use it every day as well as for my webinar hosting and podcasts.
  • When I initially bought the microphone, I liked it, but after using it for about 15 weeks, I notice an intermittant audio cut that follows the microphone, and is present on my Mac in both Garage Band and Audacity, as well as on my Windows 8 PC in Audacity
  • The sound quality is good, but now I have to upgrade my PC for this to work as it cuts in and out since it needs more memory to run
  • I first bought this to do some digital recording, but found that it also works great for Skype and other video meetings, as well as for dictation using Dragon Naturally Speaking

Reviews around crackle (3.22 of 5)

  • We used headset microphones and found a lot of static, tinny or echoe effects, or just weird crackles or pops as the user moved the headset microphone boom
  • The sound quality is good, but now I have to upgrade my PC for this to work as it cuts in and out since it needs more memory to run
  • When I initially bought the microphone, I liked it, but after using it for about 15 weeks, I notice an intermittant audio cut that follows the microphone, and is present on my Mac in both Garage Band and Audacity, as well as on my Windows 8 PC in Audacity
  • AWESOME product, use it every day as well as for my webinar hosting and podcasts.
  • If you have a crackling squeaky voice it will not make you sound like Barry White :-)However this microphone does have an exceptional quality for USB microphones and edging in on broadcast quality

Reviews around headset (2.94 of 5)

  • Only used it for audio recording and it does much better than cheaper USB mics and headsets.
  • I was so used to just going out to Walmart for a cheap Logitech headset every so often (little Midwest
  • I first bought this to do some digital recording, but found that it also works great for Skype and other video meetings, as well as for dictation using Dragon Naturally Speaking
  • but at the same time the lows are as good as the headset
  • For me the Blue Snowball easily outperformed the Logitech headset I had previously used, but the sound still wasn't to the standard I would expect of a professional grade microphone

Reviews around plastic (2.85 of 5)

  • It looks like cheap plastic in the images, but it's very well made
  • The boom does come with an adapter built into the mic clip but it is a rather cheap plastic adapter that I can see easily stripping over time
  • The power/data cable that runs from the mic to the computer is of a clear, heavy plastic construction
  • and I like the sound of the cheaper plastic alternative much better
  • I wanted to give this mic so badly 5 stars but that really little piece of crappy plastic bothered me so much that i can't

Reviews around ambient noise (2.85 of 5)

  • AWESOME product, use it every day as well as for my webinar hosting and podcasts.
  • I learned to remove and reduce ambient noise so that is an easy problem to fix
  • I use it in a home office and find draping a bath towel over it blocks out much of the ambient noise yet allows it to pick up my voice very well
  • this is not the right mic for, because it works very well at picking up ambient noises such as keyboard clicks, it also picks up the air between the strings of an acoustic guitar
  • I love t, it works really well for what I am using it for, video narration.

Reviews around environment (2.12 of 5)

  • The cardioid setting is perfect for those in a somewhat noisy environment
  • I love t, it works really well for what I am using it for, video narration.
  • It is a bit large and picks up ambient sound more than I would like, but it has served me quite well and there is always push to talk with you are in a loud environment.
  • Because of my experience I HIGHLY suggest getting a stand that clamps to your desk as to prevent it from getting it knocked off and make sure it is in a good temperature environment
  • These produce amazing sound quality in a really noisy environment
