Blue Snowball USB Microphone - Black is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good choice for podcast [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Easy to set up, simple plug and play. first mode picks audio up very well and very clearly but there is quite a bit of background pick up. the second mode is a -10db mode which helps with the background noise and is ideal for podcasts. The third mode is an all round pick up mode but the balance could be abit more even, id personally recomend this mode as a decent rough live music recorder but the vocals would have to be facing the mic directly with the instruments behind to avoid them getting lost in the mix. The stand is very stable and the ball feet have a good amount of grip on them. Overall good for podcasts or acoustic music.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great over a range of pitches [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Looks nice and stylish when getting it out of the box, was a little bulky compared to other mircrophones I have used and took up more room on the desk because of this. Would have been 5 stars had it been slightly smaller. Easy to set up, install and use and there was definitely an improvement across a range of pitches compared to the inbuilt microphone I was using previously . Those listening said they noticed a definite improvement in the quality of my voice when using this microphone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Blue Snowball microphone is great for multiple uses. We use it mainly for Zooming friends and relatives during lockdown. The omni directional setting allows both me and my husband to sit next to each other and know that the microphone will pick up our voices without having to lean in or strain towards it. Extremely easy to install - we used a Mac so we just plugged it in and selected the Snowball as input in the settings and it worked! I was surprised how easy it was to set up. The sound quality of picks up is excellent too. Much clearer and has more depth than the regular built in microphone. I’m confident that with the other two settings to reduce noise and to have a more directional sound capture that they would work just as well, although we haven’t explored those settings yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Having never used a proper microphone when editing videos I was excited to give this a go! Why haven’t I tried one before. The microphone was easy to use, I wasn’t bombarded with technical jargon setting it up. Was literally set up and go! The sound quality is amazing! There is no echoing when using, does not give a white noise feedback and no ‘tinny’ sound! Would 100% recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great new redesign [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So this new redesign and change to a better USB connector has made this microphone is so much better than it used to be, the ability to change between the 3 different modes makes this microphone a fantastic mid level microphone for streamers and recorders. The reason for the 4 stars is the fact that they have not used a USB-C connector which seems so weird to me (It's a mini USB)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautifully crafted piece of kit! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Snowball microphone has a striking appearance - like a retro radio broadcasting microphone, on an elegant tripod base. The equipment is so easy to assemble, and is well balances on the tripod, which has rubberised feet to protect the area where they rest. The microphone can be adjusted for height and on it's axis. Setting up the microphone could not be easier - just plug the USB into the socket. There is no application, drivers et al. The system automatically sets the Snowball as the default microphone. To deactivate, just pull out the USB and the system reverts to the original microphone. The only downside is that it needs to be set at it's most sensitive level to pick up a reasonable level of sound. I am enjoying using the Snowball as a microphone, but also really like how it looks on my desk!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When you need it to sound ‘right’ [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The only thing I can criticize about this mic is that it takes up a usb-a slot which means on MacBooks you’ll need other adapters to allow all your stuff to work. The mic itself is great, good for recording voice and making better calls too.
