I like it

jeremy b., Newegg
17 May 2014
  • Summary: I should have made the next step up, but I am very happy with this purchase, recorded hours and hours with this mic and I see no problems with it yet.
  • Pros: Great quality for the price, not the best, but in its price range, its pretty good. It picks up my voice pretty well from 2-3 feet away.
  • Cons: Its a little bit big, but if that is what it takes to get the nice quality out of it, then so be it. Mic itself is about the size of a softball, stand is about 6 inches tall. Its not wireless, and the massived sized (diameter) cord is a little bulky but still plenty flexible.

Great mic for the money

Eric C., Newegg

  • Summary: The stand is a little silly looking and picks up all lower frequencies (good luck typing while recording), but with the Blue Ringer Shockmount and a stand it makes for a great addition. keep in mind, its the size of a large orange, so if size is an issue, might want to go with something smaller.
  • Pros: Crystal clear sound, no set up, multiple settings to optimize sound capture.
  • Cons: Doesn't shoot lasers

  • Excerpt: I have used this mic to record voice audio which was then broadcast onto an internet radio station. Quick set up, download whatever preferred editing/recording program you like to use on your computer and it's ready to go. Works best in an environment without a lot of background noise.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight

Blue Microphones Snowball Black USB Microphone Kit

zformation, Overstock
3 October 2012
  • Summary: I was expecting the headphones to fit comfortably around my ears (like turtle beaches) however they are small and barely cover my whole ear. I have not used nor have use for the ear buds, I own too many pairs already. The pop filter's clamp rests at an angle due to its design, not sure why it was made like that but it isn't bothersome because it has an adjustable stand to be positioned in whatever fancy loop you want it to be.

  • Summary: For the price, its a great microphone, but if you bought it with the intention of having a microphone thats able to pick up your voice clearly from more then 2-3 inches away and not pick up a lot of background noise, then this microphone is not for you. I'd suggest picking up an MXL for a few bucks more.
  • Pros: -Decent Audio Quality -Easy Setup -Good entry level mic
  • Cons: - Big, if you don't have a big desk you'll find yourself disconnecting it all the time to get it out of the way. -Picks up quite a bit of ambient noise, if you have a loud environment then this mic will not be for you, while its much better then your run of the mill microphone, its not what you'd expect -Quiet compared to some other USB Stuido quality microphones at a distance

Works with Windows 7 64-bit

Stephen T., Newegg
17 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought elsewhere. It wasn't clear to me when I bought it that it would work with Windows 7 64-bit and it works perfectly on my computer. An impressive microphone.
  • Pros: Makes great sounding voice recordings.
  • Cons: Will only work when plugged into a computer USB port.

Works well

Steven B., Newegg

  • Pros: Quality directional microphone with good ratio of front to back sensitivity which can be used to avoid feedback when used, for example, with Webex or GotoMeeting in a setting with a video projector with speaker.
  • Cons: The maximum gain which I can get into Webex is a little low, i.e., with the microphone gain turned all the way up in Windows and Webex, it is still lower than I would like
