Blue Microphones Snowball Review

31 January 2012

Test: Blue Microphones Snowball

11 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Publicerad 2010-03-11 14:50 Det är klart att du också vill spela in poddsändningar med en USB-snöboll. Men är Snowball verkligen värd en tusenlapp? Den vita snöbollsmikrofonen från tillverkaren Blue är supersmidig att använda.

  • Cons: Relativt dyr.
