Product Description

Product Description

The Snowball USB microphone family from Blue Microphones is the number one selling line of USB wired condenser microphones on the planet. Their unique design and proprietary condenser capsules deliver legendary sound for everything from podcasting to recording instruments. The Snowball iCE benefits from Blue’s legendary professional audio heritage to record at a level unmatched anywhere.

It's never been easier to get high quality audio with your computer! Home, office, anywhere — the Snowball iCE USB microphone delivers audio quality that's light years ahead of your computer's built-in microphone. Its custom condenser capsule with cardioid pattern offers crystal clear audio for communicating, creating,and recording. Also plug n' play for PC and Mac, Snowball iCE requires no drivers.

The Snowball iCE features a unique swivel mount located on the bottom center of the mic body. Be sure to mount the Snowball iCE on its included desktop stand or on a standard-thread counter-weighted tripod mic stand. For reduction of low-frequency rumble and additional positioning options, mount the Snowball iCE in the Blue Ringer, available separately. Be sure to position the Snowball iCE over the center leg of the stand to further prevent tipping. Once mounted, you can gently pivot the Snowball iCE back and forth for optimum positioning in front of the sound source. Once safely mounted, connect the Snowball iCE to the USB port on your Macintosh or Windows computer (the Snowball iCE is USB 1.0 and 2.0 compatible). If you’re using an iPad, you’ll need Apple’s iPad Camera Connection Kit for USB connectivity. Make sure that the active, on-axis side of the diaphragm (the side with the Blue logo) is facing the desired source.

When connected, the LED just above the Blue logo will glow red, indicating power has reached the Snowball iCE and it is ready to record. Now you’re ready to set up your Snowball iCE on either your Mac or PC.

After extensive testing by engineers, Snowball iCE has been certified by Skype for providing both exceptional clarity and a guaranteed optimal Skype experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Good! 16 April 2012
By Jojo
Verified Purchase
Just got my Snowball ice today, The only diffrence between this and the normal snowball is the no option for the omni-direction, But as i'll be recording solo which is Cardiod i wont need the other feature also good for voice overs ext, Also very good for recording instruments. Really easy to set up and use. The Sound is incredible it's HD and just supperb has a nice rich tone also note it's a condensor mic too if your not bothered about the other features which a Snowball has and your going to be recording only ever one person this is a great purchase and your saving your self $50 :)

I'd recommed buying a pop filter which are really cheap and help enhance your recording by removing Popping and harsh sounds. Also to keep your Mic's Diaphragm clean from plosives

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Mic, 5 Star Quality. 22 Mar 2012
This microphone is easy to unbox, and the minute I plugged it in, it was working. My friend noticed the sound difference immediately, saying how good it was.
I recorded a few seconds to hear it for myself, and I must say, it's great.
I'm giving this a 5 Star review. It's worth the money, and i'd say it could be better than some of the other HD microphones which are worth much more. If you're looking for a microphone under 100, this is a great one to consider.

5.0 out of 5 stars Youtube Commentator 4 Jan 2013
The Blue Snowball ICE Is A Nice Piece of kit - I got it for 45 so im even happy.

however PLEASE TAKE CARE WHEN INSERTING USB INTO THE MICROPHONE ITS SELF, Failure to do so in a careful way WILL dammage the 4 pins on the inside, ive broken them 2 times now and fixed them with a pair of twezers, So take care.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but clips high notes 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
The Snowball iCE is a fantastic microphone for spoken word and vocals and offers good quality and reasonably flat spectrum recording. For vocals it might need some software equalisation to bring back warmth into the vocal. My main concern is if you have a big voice (operatic etc.) then it tends to clip badly on high notes. The model up has a 10db pad to reduce the analogue gain and prevent this so may be better suited for some applications.
