What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Blue Snowball Ice USB Microphone - White
  • I am very impressed with sound quality. The size is great, setup was easy. A great tool!
  • The mic by itself is about the same size as a softball.
  • This thing is massive in size and comes with its own stand.
  • I was also impressed by the size of the Snowball. When looking at it online, I was thinking baseball size.
  • The biggest flaw is that the weight of the mic is too heavy for the quality of the stand, which results in the mic tipping over when adjusting the legs or trying to position the sizable, inflexible USB cable.

What customers say about "Features"
Blue Snowball Ice USB Microphone - White
  • This mic sounds pretty flat to me which is great for instruments and vocals.
  • What's great also is the frequency response is flat or flatter than other mics. What that means is that, the mic isn't shaping your voice too much. What you hear is what you sounded like.
  • Windows 7 recognized the microphone instantly and installed appropriate drivers.
  • Easy plug and play. You plug it into a PC or Mac, and it's good to go right away.
  • This mike does not feature noise reduction but the cardioid pattern is satisfactory to reduce feedback.
  • It records High Frequencies too much which makes it a pain to EQ and compress vocals for that quality sound in music.
Blue Yeti USB Mic for Recording & Streaming on PC and Mac
  • Simple to use and records great sound. I use it to record podcasts and the multiple recording patterns are a godsend. I love this mic.
  • There are manual switches for both gain and recording patterns - stereo, omni, cardioid, and bi-directional.
  • It’s a very sensitive microphone, it picks up a lot of low and mid frequencies.
  • It also features a 3.5mm standard audio jack port which allows you to plug in earphones to get real time monitoring. I really like it.
  • Amount of background noise and static detracts from what should be professional quality.
