Overview

The Blueberry Cardioid Condenser Microphone from Blue consists of a Class A discrete mic amp perfectly chosen to match the single pattern, cardioid, hand-built, large diaphragm capsule. The mic capsule has been tuned to provide a silky-bright and airy top end reminiscent of the best vintage microphones. The result is a recorded signal such as a vocal, minus unwanted low-end resonance that can cause a compressor to breathe or pump, or a vocal or instrument track that sits and blends with the basic tracks of recorded program material.

    Comments about Blueberry Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

    I like Blue mics. The Blue Bird and Encore 300 are two of my favorites.
    But this came to me with a capsule that was dislodged and bouncing around inside the head basket... so I had to return it.
    So Quality Control is an issue with Blue.
    The sound of this model is good, with a very low noise floor and high output level. But when I did an A/B comparison of the exact same performer, through the exact same preamp, with this mic and the Blue Bird on another track, played back side by side (L/R), they could not be distinguished from each other. Perhaps other sound sources will show differences.
    For a little more money, mics like the Neumann 103 show real improvements in sound. And the quality is always perfect.
    Or get a Blue Bird and put the difference toward a good preamp.

    Very Difficult To Beat At This Price

    By Joseph Salvatore

    from Nashville, TN

    Comments about Blueberry Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

    I've used this mic for many years, and while there is always subjectivity when judging these things, I can safely say you're going to be hard pressed to beat the sound of this mic without spending at least twice as much. Maybe not even then. It has a very open top end, but not hyped at all. The airy sound comes from the fact that this mic does not give you a lot of proximity effect (the boominess from getting up close to a mic). If you like that boom, then this isn't for you. However, almost all studio applications seek to get rid of this in mix down, so the lack of prox effect is considered a plus by most people. Also, the Blueberry does suffer a little from off-axis rejection. You need to be in front of it. Being off to the side will noticeable change the sound. You don't want to use it for ensembles or have two or three people on one mic. For use as an all around mic for acoustic guitar, vocals, percussion, whatever...this thing does it exceptionally well. As always, try to do your own listening tests if you can, but make sure you hear this before buying anything.

    A Singer is Impressed

    By Smoldering Brontosaurus Chariots

    from Wilmington, Delaware

    Comments about Blueberry Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

    I am the lead singer in an unsigned band, and my Uncle is a professional producer. He owns this microphone, and I have recorded with it. I was blown away. The quality and tones that this microphone produced is stunning. I would recommend this microphone for recording vocals in a heartbeat.

    Awesome

    By AmazinSandor

    from NJ

    Comments about Blueberry Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

    This is a great mic I own one and just bought a second. Excellent vocal mic. Not as versitile as an AKG 414 but its rugged and well built. Well worth the money, good bang for the buck. Highly recommend it.

    Blueberry Will Blow your Mind

    By Larry-eUNqL

    from Ca

    Comments about Blueberry Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

    I and several audio nuts went to a studio and compared several mics, AKG 411, Neumann T103 ,Sterling,Shure KSM32, and many others in a blind test. The Blueberry by Blue, no joke, blew the doors off all the others except a vintage U47, which priced at $7,500. High Detail, Warm friendly sound, Airy sound like the singer is standing there. Highly recommended!! AAA+ for the price! Sounds like a mic costing far more.

    Very dependable and high performance mic

    By Blake-bmlQZ

    from Pheonix

    Comments about Blueberry Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

    Brings out the high-end as all the blue mics do so well. Not quite as high quality as the kiwi or Cactus, but they cost twice the amount. Features are tremendous. With a pop screen, it allows you to a do a whole lot. Like all the blues, they don't work for all styles of music. Pop, soft to moderate rock in general.
