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.

After owning this microphone for a while, i thought it would be worth a review.

Pros:

- Compact form factor. They've managed to fit an incredibly good condenser microphone and stand in a small box for a great price here. It fits excellently on my desk.

- Sound quality. After using both IM applications and also music production software, i've found the microphone can deal with both voice instruments very effectivley. Very good for acoustic instruments.

- Price. It may seem a bit expensive, but for the quality of the product it is worth it. Stellar build quality, great sound and a great size. All of these make it worth the full price.

Cons:

- The red light always being on is somewhat irritating, but thats how picky im having to be about con's for this microphone.

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

This Microphone is absoulotley amazing! This Microphone got recommended to me by a YouTuber who was talking about the key to a successful or half decent YouTube Channel, and he said firstly you needed a Good Mic, so he said if your looking for a Mic under £50 choose this one, and thank god I took his advice. The Mic was bigger than I expected but I didnt mind that, the stand just screws in on the bottom and then 3 legs just pop out making it really stable. As it says in the product Description, it is plug and play, which is really convenient, but you will probably just fiddle with one setting, in the "Recording Devices" -> "Microphone - Blue Snowball" -> "Properties" -> "Advanced" - in this option just make sure the device is set as, "2 Channel, 16 bit, 48000Hz (DVD Quality)", this is just to make sure you get the best possible sound.

+ Really fast shipping
+ Can compete with £200 Microphones
+ Easy to set up (Plug & Play)
+ Inbuilt Condenser

- A bit plasticy
- I would recommend a breathing shield as it is so sensitive
- Slightly Tinny sound when not compressed

All in all a fantastic Microphone, great buy, will be buying more Blue Microphones products!

After having read a review on a random forum I came by and after having watched a video on YouTube that compared this item to the other well-known product of Blue microphones, I decided to give this a go.
My primary purpose of usage is voice acting and voice overs, therefore my needs are demanding and I had to make a good search before I proceeded with the purchase of "any" microphone.
So far I am fairly impressed; the quality of input sound is I'd say 4/5, just like my rating of the product. It sounds like it has a built-in filter that kind of "chokes" the surrounding noise, but it is highly sensitive to sounds of saliva, which means that you have to edit them on your own if your are going for recordings or maybe I am not experienced enough to isolate them while voice acting.
All in all, I am quite pleased and for those wondering if it can be used in Windows 8, well, this is what I have, it works fine. It doesn't require any further installations of a driver, it's a simple USB cable.
The downside I could mention (because sensitivity to saliva may be annoying, but it suggests at the same time that the microphone does a healthy job) is that it is a bit heavy for a microphone, thus, not the friendliest portability, especially for someone like me that comes and goes with airlines that are very strict about the weight of your luggage.
I am not sure about your standards, therefore I won't go "yes, buy it for sure" or "no, hell no", but keep in mind that for a perfectionist like me it is my first semi-professional mic that I am happy with!
