  • Great Mic, A Few Hassles

    The Blue Snowball iCE is a quality-built mic that's made for more casual consumers. It is far from a proper studio mic, but it's great for its price range. The mic design feels nice and looks aesthetically pleasing. It's a simple sphere with a glossy brand logo, as well as a nice touch of red LED lighting on the front. I thought the mic stand, particularly the legs, would be a bit flimsy, but surprisingly it holds itself up quite well, despite the weight of the mic it supports. I don't think it'll break easily. I'm not sure about the mic itself though. As for the mic quality, it's great. It's nice and clear as advertised, and it's a great starter for people who want to upgrade from much cheaper options. The major downside is the input volume. It transmits voices at a frequency that people perceive as more quiet. So you'll have to keep the mic close enough (a faint breath away) if you plan on buying it. I recommend buying a boom arm, whatever fits best, instead of using the stand that comes with this mic. Well, you could just simply turn up the input volume, but the mic doesn't cancel out background noise. People don't want to hear your keyboard, mouse, or whatever. The minor downside is how big and clunky the mic is, especially if it's paired with it's own stand. The USB cables are a hassle to arrange, too. It's another reason why a boom arm is essential for dedicated use of this mic. In short, the Blue Snowball iCE is a great mic for its price range, but it will need to be paired with a proper stand.


  • Dissapointment

    So, I "had" this microphone for a month, and while I was in a call with someone the mic dropped from my desk on a carpet floor. Not a wooden floor, a carpet floor. And it broke. To be fairly honest, it wasnt a great mic in the first place ._. people could barely hear you on it, and it was just cheap materials. For the price it is, atleast make it durable....


  • Son 8/10 Qualité 2/10

    Le son est relativement bon pour un produit de cette gamme, mais la qualité de fabrication laisse à désirer. Les matériaux choisis semblent durables, mais les composants électroniques ne semblent pas de bonne qualité. Dans mon cas, le prise USB est de très mauvaise qualité et ne fonctionne presque pas. Elle est lousse et je doit tenir manuellement le fil pour que le microphone soit détecté par mon ordinateur.
