  • Good microphone for a conference
    Reviewed by MacDuff - May 12, 2020

    Bought it to record conferences and works quite well. The room is about 40 x 50 ft with all hard surfaces, nothing to absorb echo and hum from overhead fluorescent lights. Not a good location to record meeting discussions. The mic that was replaced picked up quite a lot of hum and echo. The Blue snowball was a noticeable improvement using the same input settings on the recorder. It may not be quite as bright as the replaced mic but lighting hum was much lower, as was the echo effect. Voices were clear and easy for the person doing the transcription to hear and identify each speaker by voice. Although the pickup pattern is cardoid, voice quality and levels were good even behind the microphone.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Great mic for the price
    Verified BuyerReviewed by WillShropYoutube - August 5, 2019

    I've been using this for a couple of weeks and absolutely love it. Plug and play. Sound is not the best, but for $50 there's no reason to complain. You would have to spend a lot more money to get slightly better sound quality. I would highly recommend this to anyone getting started out to do any sort of streaming or recording youtube videos. If you're trying to do music related videos, you probably already know you need something better. But for just speaking. Great mic. Only issue is the flimsy stand. If you have it on a table/desk and bump the desk, the mic will definitely pick that up. I would recommend getting a boom arm which can be bought for pretty cheap.

  • I needed a USB microphone, and this works.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Krazyredboy - May 17, 2018

    It's as simple as this: I needed an easy to setup, simple to use, and effective microphone. As this won't be used for much beyond podcast recordings and online streaming, the quality factor is not a necessity for me. As is, the quality is decent, but I would not begin to rank them with my good recording microphones. It does tend to pick up a bit more room noise than I would prefer, but I don't think that will really hinder its use. So far, it works, and that is what counts. It was easy to setup and did not require any special software, which was a good surprise. Windows 10 was able to accept it and use it, right away.
