The Blue Snowball is designed for mobile laptop use and desktop studios with its universal drivers for Mac and Windows and built-in plug-and-play USB connectivity.

It is an easy-to-use USB condenser microphone that captures unheard-of detail whether you're recording a band in a studio or an acoustic guitar in your living room. The Blue Snowball mic is ideal for podcasting as well. Plug-and-play the Blue Snowball microphone with your PC or Mac with no added software.

The Blue Snowball USB mic's versatility is achieved by its unique dual-capsule design, with one capsule tailored for vocals and the other for instruments.The Blue Snowball mic's 3-polar pattern switch allows you to choose from cardioid, cardioid with -10dB pad, and omnidirectional polar response patterns. The first position activates the cardioid capsule suited for a robust vocal sound. The second position engages a -10dB pad that's great for recording electric guitars. The third position activates both Snowball capsules to create an omnidirectional pattern, best for choirs and other widely dispersed sources. The dual-capsule design allows the Blue Snowball to handle anything you can throw at it, from soft vocals to loud garage bands.

The Blue Snowball USB mic bundle includes the Blue Snowball Kit, with a tripod desk stand and a USB cable.

Magazine Reviews
Emusician Apr 2007 "With an attractive Mac-centric look, the Snowball contains a pair of electret condenser capsules and offers two polar patterns, each with a slightly different sonic signature." http://emusician.com/mics/personal_studio_usb_mics/index.html SOS July 06 "There's no denying that a buss-powered USB mic is a very neat solution to recording audio into a laptop or domestic computer system, and this one produces subjectively high-quality results" http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jul06/articles/snowball.htm

    Ive had this microphone for about a month and overall, im impressed. Its light, portable, sturdy and for the price has good sound quality. However, it only supports a custom mount which in my opinion, is overpriced. The mount (when on a boom and in front of you) can be quite annoying at times and if you were to move it away from your face, you face another issue which is the gain. With the mic close to my face, it is around 70-80%. However, if its moved more then 1.5 feet away from your face (maybe even 1 foot) then the gain drops to 20-30. Overall great mic, sacrificed compatibility for Design which was worth it but was not worth the gain drop.
