Pretty great

William H., Newegg
26 June 2015
  • 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.
  • Cons: None

  • 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 )

great mic for a great price

Dana V., Newegg

  • 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.

User Review

Kyle C., Newegg

  • Pros: The microphone pics up a lot of sound! It looks nice! Fits in the palm of your hand!
  • Cons: The stand doesn't lock properly. In fact...mine doesn't lock at all. It just slides out. And I am afraid if I try to screw it down tighter I will break the plastic! It maybe picks up to much sound...In every recording from at least 3 feet away from my desktop, it can pick up the fans whirring. :(...

Thristan M., Newegg

  • Pros: I think this microphone is perfect, as soon as I joined my normal skype group, everybody said that I should of add more microphone to my order and give them as christmas gift. Love it
  • Cons: Size, I can't find the good place to position it, the quality is unbelievable, but you ear my mouse click too well and my computer fans too, even my mother speaking to me. Shouldn't be a con for everyone though

OK for some things.

Shawna W., Newegg
13 December 2014
  • Summary: So, the first thing is, I have a less than ideal recording area. I have a fan in my computer that refuses to run less than 1200rpms and no controller to tell it to shut up, so there is constant fan noise.
  • Pros: - Inexpensive - Good for use as a speaking mic - Decent for pop vocals
  • Cons: - Stand is iffy and will not lock, very hard to get the mic to screw on to it properly as well - Incredibly large - Included USB cable is much too short to get away from computer noise - Absolutely cannot handle soprano vocals
