Reviews around product (4.66 of 5)

  • *could have been* a great product-- what were they thinking??
  • I would not recommend this product for studio recording (even though Justin Bieber used this mic) because it does not provide that many options when recording audio
  • Great product replaced old mic really captures voice but not background noise its great for commentating or podcasting for sure its a great buy
  • Its too bad with so many good reviews, this product can be so cheap and useless.
  • Product appears to be a good quality product that is well made.

Reviews around sound (4.31 of 5)

  • You have to have the microphone close to you to have a good sound.
  • Pros-Cheap"Does the Job"Cons-Picks up ANY sound in the general
  • In this mode, the microphone only records from the front, ignoring sound from the back of the mic
  • Every once and a while the mic would make this static sound but besides that it's awesome thank you a lot.
  • The sound quality is great and her videos sound professional.

Reviews around thing (3.97 of 5)

  • i must of knocked this thing off my desk like 50 times and it works just fine.
  • 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
  • I use it for doing voice over on films and this thing is very, very good.
  • The included stand is a worthless little thing that will aggravate the hell out of you
  • While this microphone picks up every single sound and is great quality, that is not a good thing when you are podcasting or recording in your house.

Reviews around record (3.97 of 5)

  • This mic has clear sounding voice and great sounding recording of music.
  • Not professional recording quality for a CD of course, but great for cover videos :
  • You do have to be close to it while recording, to really get that nice clear voice recording, but that works for me
  • 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)

  • Yes, the sound quality is pretty good for a plug play solution, but its design is poor and hinders its functionality
  • Doesn't take up much desk space at all and as I said, with it's sleek design, makes the desk look better
  • 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 love the design and the texture and look of the brushed aluminum
  • My only beef is that Blue cheapened the design of the stand, as I understand it

Reviews around snowball (3.78 of 5)

  • 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
  • If you're deciding between this and the Yeti I would recommend the Snowball wholeheartedly
  • The Snowball is excellent for doing a assortment of things,
  • The yeti a better mic, however that does not mean that the snowball is garbage
  • But until then, the Snowball will work just fine and dandy.

Reviews around metal (3.50 of 5)

  • AWESOME product, use it every day as well as for my webinar hosting and podcasts.
  • I love t, it works really well for what I am using it for, video narration.
  • 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
  • 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
  • Bad sadly the fragile metal wires behind the head bent easily and eventually ceased to function completely

  • 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
  • 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

Reviews around headset (2.94 of 5)

  • but at the same time the lows are as good as the headset
  • Only used it for audio recording and it does much better than cheaper USB mics and headsets.
  • 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
  • I had a cheap wal-mart headset that I was using before and that sounded horrible compared to this (that is why I was looking for a new mic)
  • I plan on buying another one with a stand and a pop filter (not necessary if not talking directly into the mic) and can't wait to get another great mic back (using a crappy headset with a built in mic).

Reviews around plastic (2.85 of 5)

  • 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
  • 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
  • The power/data cable that runs from the mic to the computer is of a clear, heavy plastic construction
  • It's shiny chrome colored plastic with is neither brushed in appearance nor remotely Aluminum like.

Reviews around ambient noise (2.85 of 5)

  • 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
  • I'm using this to pick up ambient noises in an auditorium, works pretty well, but it would be much better for podcasting or straight forward vocal recording.
  • AWESOME product, use it every day as well as for my webinar hosting and podcasts.
  • 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
  • I learned to remove and reduce ambient noise so that is an easy problem to fix

Reviews around environment (2.12 of 5)

  • Due to its high sound quality, it's also very sensitive so beware of noisy environments.
  • I live in a noisy environment and it cancels everything and only picks up what is directly in front of
  • The cardioid setting is perfect for those in a somewhat noisy environment
  • 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.
  • I love t, it works really well for what I am using it for, video narration.

Reviews around connection (2.05 of 5)

  • but I can't even move a it little because it lost the connection with the computer and sometimes I notice until I finish
  • The connection is poor between the mic and cable and not of good design or adequate for the this level of microphoneLisa
  • One, the tripod's connection to the microphone could be a little more stable (it won't fall off, but it may turn away from you if you move the surface its resting on too much) and two, the light on top of it makes it rather annoying to use in the dark (rather bright).TL;DR cheap and good with no extra purchase requirements = win
  • I love t, it works really well for what I am using it for, video narration.
  • The mic will still plug in, but everyone once and it while it will lose connection
