The Blue Microphones Blueberry consists of a Class A discrete microphone amplifier perfectly matched to BLUE's single pattern, cardioid, hand built large diaphragm capsule. First and foremost, the Blueberry has been designed to provide the commanding, intimate presence associated with the world's best (and most expensive) vintage vocal microphones. With its shimmering, detailed highs, smooth midrange, and minimized proximity effect (a bass boost inherent in all unidirectional mics), the Blueberry excels at delivering a vocal right to the front of the mix where it belongs. When processed with limiting and/or compression, as is standard practice for most pop vocals, tracks recorded with the Blueberry will be free of pumping, low frequency thumps. Acoustic guitar, hand percussion, drums, and other critical high end sources also shine in front of the Blueberry, gaining an extra measure of presence that enables the most delicate sounds to cut through a mix, even at very low levels. Designed to fill the needs of the home musician and the professional alike, the Blueberry includes the Series Two Shockmount and comes handsomely packaged in its own cherrywood box. Whatever your music, add a Blueberry to the mix and let your ears feast on the sound.

$20 and two weeks later, it was on my doorstep again. This time it worked as advertised.
I have contacted the company 2 different times to see what was wrong with it. No response both times.
This is the second time I have had to return one of their products.
--5 stars for the Blueberry, 3 stars for Blue.--
The mic is fantastic, I love everything about it.
Mainly, I love it for its ability to be compressed. Since it "scoops" the bottom end out, I can compress vocals as much as I want without dealing with artifacts.
The overall sound is very crisp, but not so razor sharp that it sounds unnatural. It definately has some warmth to it.
To me, it was worth the money just to be able to get the right breath out of my compressor.
The Blueberry is a rap/hip-hop artist's dream. In my opinion, rap is what it's made for.
Though I've used this mostly on vocals, I've had some success using it on guitar, piano and percussion as well.
The build quality of this mic is exceptional.
For around $1K, this mic competes well with mics selling for four times as much.
