OK for some things.

  • 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. This would be less of an issue if my room layout and the length of the cable allowed me to move it to a position where my computer were behind it and it could be picked up less. Unfortunately, this isn't the case.
  • 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

  • Summary: Pretty good.
  • Pros: It looks very cool and very professional. I like it very much. Records sound very clearly.
  • Cons: You may have to yell a bit if you are going to do commentary. I strongly suggest reading the users guide before having any ideas of sending it back.

Sometimes it won't play with my computer

  • Summary: My computer has a lot of trouble finding this mike after it is plugged in. Sometimes it shows right up and engages, other times it will not show up anywhere. Also, i'm a bit disappointed with the size. I bought it on-line so i had no idea how big it was. I was picturing something a lot smaller. Otherwise, when it works it seems to work fine, though i haven't had much time with it yet.
  • Pros: Versatile
  • Cons: Bulky/Heavy, Unreliable

Could be great but.......

  • Summary: I know that Blue has a patch for the low amplitude issue but it does not work with all of these Mics, only the latest ones. They also did not support Vista Apps for years and are very slow to respond to customers questions or complaints. In general this is a good mic but it is not up to Blu's standards and the support is less than you would expect.
  • Pros: Good pattern and versitle. USB with no drivers. Good construction quality. Probibally fine for a loud Rock Band.
  • Cons: Blue does not support newer OS'es, if a new version of Windows comes out you may be out of luck as Blue does not reliably update drivers. There is a slight echo when recording quieter passages. If you are an accuracy fanatic it will bug you. The mic could use more amplitude, I have to boost the amplitude in software more than I like, to the point of chancing some distortion in order to do a good mix.

Good but watch compatibility

  • Summary: This microphone is good IF your OS supports the driver. If you are running Windows XP, you are all good. Check the website on Blue Microphones first.

  • Excerpt: Sad to I took the mic back and exchanged it the next day because of the poor implementation of usb as an interface for multitracking along side another audio interface (m-audio delta 192). If I was doing podcasts and did't need to monitor this would be the mic to have, the quality that I was able to record was excellent but due to no asio suppor...
