5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive, clean cardiod sound, mac core audio, warm omni mode, May 24, 2006
This review is from: Blue Microphones Snowball USB Microphone (Textured White) (Electronics)
Okay, I own a lot of microphones. I am very picky when it comes to sound and I would gladly waste $40 in gas to return a microphone that just didn't have the sound I expect. I was delighted to hear the quality of this USB mic! It has a great clarity to it, without being "tinny" or "crispy", and without sacrificing on the lows either. No "boomy" or "hollow" sound, just a nice clean and full-range quality that I expect from my $500-range microphones (but thankfully, without having to fool with an audio interface or goofy proprietary driver software!) What a great find... plug it in and it is ready to record!!

If you are looking for an intelligent, clean, affordable microphone for voice-over projects, podcasts, quick-and-easy live recording (with your laptop, of course), or open-mic music composition before dragging all the gear out to record a full-blown multitrack, this is the best money can buy in this category. Not to mention, it looks great sitting on your desk! BLUE has definitely convinced me to buy again, solid construction and solid sound (and no stupid drivers like Samson's USB garbage). Maybe next I'll get a Bluebird or Baby Bottle, this company is worth a closer look now that I've heard the very smooth sound of their entry level -- BLUE has got my attention!!

Some people know how to write; most only know how to blab their opinions on something. It shouldn't take much of an imagination to figure that a guy with "a lot of microphones" who is "very picky" about them and specifically mentions using a mic for things like "voice-over projects" is probably a professional radio announcer and/or voice-over artists, i.e. it's likely he makes commercials for a living. Therefore, it shouldn't surprise anyone that he would write his opinion in a way that sounds like a commercial. Most people don't know how to write (or speak) their opinions very well. This guy does. Don't hate him for it.

Hello, there is another Blue Microphone that is better and it's the Blue Microphone Yeti. Here's the link. Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone - Silver

It's great for a few reasons. One because it has four vocal patterns available. Two because it has a head phone port with a volume switch. Also, it has a mute button on the front. Four it has a gain control on the back. And last is that it has a great stand that is built in a way in witch you can easily clamp a pop filter on. I use mine for audio podcast on www.multimediacritics.com and I love it!

What one says in the colloquial and what one writes (or reads from a teleprompter written by one's professional speech writers) are 2 entirely different things. Most people adopt a public persona when interacting with the world outside their closest circle of friends, and this persona can sometimes come across stiff or less than genuine.

I'm sure some posts are nothing but sponsored commercials in disguise, but I'm betting Bob's isn't one of them.
