great microphone for everything!
4 weeks ago
Summary: I might buy another one in black in the future XP
Pros: Very great sound! I bought this microphone last year to kickstart my YouTube career. I had been using a turtle beach x12 before and when I switched over I couldn't believe it! I use this mic for everything from Skype calls to general talking in games and will use it when I restart my channel. Def...
Cons: A few: first- I bought the chrome one and it smudges very easily but this isn't really much of a complaint than I first world problem. Second- the stand is flimsy. A couple times it has actually fallen off my desk. Lastly- just a complaint to all the people saying it's too sensitive: you can chan...
Summary: Though the cons look worse, this mic's quality is absolutely astounding for only $50, I've even gotten compliments in game on my mic quality.
Pros: Crystal clear recording for $50
Cons: This thing is going to pick up every sound in your room, not just your voice. It's also way bigger than I was expecting, it's like a softball. One more grievance, the light on the ball doesn't go off after powering off your PC, so you have to unplug it to get it to go off.
Summary: I would love for there to be more colour options at this price point but that's about it.
Pros: Really good build quality for the price. I absolutely love this microphone it does exactly what's expected from a half decent mic. I bought 2 so my girlfriend could have one she loves it, it makes skype-ing each other so much better. I really expected the build quality to be bad just cause the pr...
Cons: Kinda bulky but that's just because my desk space is nonexistent. Besides that it's really good and I would recommend to anyone.
Summary: Stand is very stable, I have a unique situation where I have the mic stand on the circle on the bottom on my desk. I do so because of the height of my monitors, but it works pretty well, so nice job Blue for not making me use the stand.
Pros: Pretty much everything, haven't had any problems and have owned it for almost a year.
Pros: Great sound Captures EVERYTHING (even things you DON'T want it to capture...) Not too large, but not tiny either.
Cons: Captures EVERYTHING (even things you DON'T want it to capture...) EX: Captures the birds... outside my window... which is shut... When I can't even hear them. Yes. It is THAT sensitive (luckily you can change certain programs to make it not take that audio! :D )
Summary: If you want to make youtube videos or stream but don't want to invest to much money, this is a great starting mic.
Pros: This mic is great for some one starting off on youtube or twitch. Great quality and price.
Cons: Only real "problem" is its sound quality isn't consistent through different programs. Wile It sounded great on power director with no background noise. I had to add some filters using a 3rd party program to filter out background noise when I was streaming on twitch using obs.
Excerpt: The microphone works well, on the directional setting it doesn't seem to pick up much background noise that occurs to the sides. No issues for me with low volume (some people have complained in online reviews that they can't turn up the volume enough). I use it for phone calls and skype only.
