"A little overrated IMO" - vsavagellc

28 November 2012
  • Excerpt: I hated most about this mic was it's design. I can't stand the way it looks or it's build. It's just... clunky. The audio quality isn't too bad it's very usable especially if you're podcasting or just using the mic for some basic voice overs. I hate the fact that you can't mount this mic to a mic stand. It's meant to be a desktop/...

"decent usb mic" - yoTrakkz

11 October 2011
  • Excerpt: I'm amazed at how good it sounds. I've used it to record my band and a friends band as well. For vocals it gives you a clean and crisp signal that naturally brings the vocals to the front of the mix. I often times find myself using the Snowball to record things over more expensive mics I own, because it's so easy and convenient to use. I leave i...

  • Excerpt: So I find that the Blue Snowball, unless it gets a bit of a makeover, will lose its place in the traveling audio person market. There are a few better offerings coming out onto the market now, and if you YouTube the Snowball and watch it in comparisons with other USB microphones, it's getting blown away. But I will say one thing. ...

" The Snowball, not too bad with USB" - windigo

26 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Past year, I have more to look, lol. Yes of course, the little GO USB Mic Samson C01U and. What I like, I think depending on the version there is more or less plastic. The three have a great vintage look, all-aluminum and brushed steel, it exudes robustness, white is the one who seems more fragile, but in fact it is a very strong r...

  • Excerpt: This mic is very cheap and can do a lot for the price. For someone who is not too discriminating about the sound quality, this is a very nice buy because it is the microphone, stand, and interface all in one convenient and cool looking sphere. The overall sound quality is a little bit lacking in detail, but definitely more than you'd expect fo...

  • Excerpt: I use it for years, like 4 or 5 years (when it was released in fact). I possde lot of microphones in the studio, and it really pleases me for guitars (guitar amps). The sound is trsdfini and Retailer. It lacks a bit of hair balls mtalleux guitarist, but coupled with a microphone that captures the serious (an MD421 for example) is a duo f...
