  • 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. :(...

OK for some things.

Shawna W., Newegg

  • 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

Works Alright

  • Summary: I usually use a different mic, but I was going to buy a smaller one for Skype calls. In my opinion, there are probably much better spoken word mics for not much more money, and I would look into it.
  • Pros: -Cheap, I got mine for $50 -Well built -Quality cable -Fair sound quality, but the three settings are mainly normal, quiet, and quieter.
  • Cons: -The three settings are useless for spoken word. -You can't change your distance or orientation relative to the microphone without drastically changing the sound -The stand is awkward, and requires some fiddling with to fit into a mic holder

  • 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.

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.
  • 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 a...

Does not work with any iMac (2013)

Dima R, Apple
25 February 2014
  • Summary: We got an iMac in November 2013 and it doesn't work with this excellent microphone. Actually, it doesn't work with any USB microphone. Apple have a huge hardware and/or software flaw on their hands and don't seem to be doing anything about it.

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.
