Overview

The Blue Snowball USB mic finally gives you a USB microphone that's not only easy to use, but that also sounds as good on your desktop as it does in a professional recording studio. Whether you're recording a guitar at your kitchen table or a complete band in the studio, the Blue Snowball captures the sound with the kind of detail unheard of before in a USB microphone.

The Blue Snowball is a direct plug-and-play mic that connects to either a Mac or PC computer with no additional software needed. With its dual microphone capsule design and unique 3-pattern switch (cardioid, cardioid with -10dB pad, and omni), the Snowball handles everything from soft vocals to the loudest garage band - and it's an ideal mic for podcasting.

The Blue Snowball has a unique swivel mount on the bottom the mic body. Be sure to position the Snowball over the center leg of your tripod (not included) to further prevent tipping. Once mounted, you can gently pivot the Snowball microphone back and forth for optimum positioning in front of the sound source.

Once safely mounted, connect the Blue Snowball to the USB port on your Macintosh or Windows computer. Make sure that the active, on-axis side of the diaphragm (the side with the Blue logo) is facing the desired source. When connected, the LED just above the Blue logo glows red, indicating that the Snowball mic is powered up and ready to roll.

Best Mic Out Right About Now

By Can't Tell

from NY, New York City

Comments about BLUE Snowball USB Microphone:

This microphone is amazing man.... The volume on this is perfect and amazing, It's clear enough for me to hear my vocals. I Don't really even have to edit my vocals with this microphone because it's that good. YOu better buy them now while you can now, because once people start buying these it aint gonna be possible for anyone to get one.

Better Than Expected

By Reed Gidez

from Oradell, NJ

Comments about BLUE Snowball USB Microphone:

I know that BLUE produces some extraordinary gear but the sound from this mic blew me away! I also have the RODE Podcaster USB mic which is very nice but for my voice (spoken, not singing) this mic shines. Very rich and mellow. HUGE bang for the buck!

Easy

By Amy Handelman

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about BLUE Snowball USB Microphone:

This mic is really easy to use, and sounds perfectly nice for a home studio. Only issues I have - I can't get the base to screw in tightly, and it always feels a little wobbly. Also, the cord doesn't hold tight when it is plugged in and can easily fall out. Quality is good. Logistics of the physical structure itself are a little wonky.
