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 is an absolutely easy microphone to set up, no trouble! It works with windows 8, just plug it in and it will detect it. The hand books are very helpful and easy to understand. You can adjust it up and down not side to side. If you're looking for a slightly better model that will last you longer than go for the normal Blue Snowball. The ice is made of plastic(The stand)but the normal one has a metal stand. It has a USB plug - in and will work with any computer and even for iPad! ***** quality

I got this microphone after replacing my old headset that was falling apart, to be clear I use this microphone while I use my computer and talk to friends.

I use skype regularly with friends who find the audio quality better than amazing, the only problem that I had this the microphone is that it is just too sensitive to noise so I've had to turn the microphone volume.

The snowball's stand is stable but can get in the was if your desk is cluttered. I bought a pop filter to go this the microphone but found that the snowball's filter is more than enough, unless your planning to be spitting at it. :)

The size of the microphone can be a problem if your trying to place it in front me but can be placed to the side to remove the obstruction of the microphone.

Overall I would recommend this microphone to anyone needing a semi-cheap and very good quality microphone.

My fiancé does a lot of videos on Youtube which require voicing over, and he has been wanting a Snowball mic for a long time, so I bought this for his birthday.
The sound quality is excellent and will pick up every little sound in the room. It's a stylish piece to have sitting on the desk (though it can be a little large if you have a small desk), gives off a sense of the old time-y radio shows.

There was one issue that we had where the drivers would not install, however this was a fault with his PC rather than anything else. I only mention it here in case others have the same issue. To fix this, unplug the mic and restart Windows, then plug it back in. There is no software otherwise to be installed, Windows will find the drivers.

Pros: excellent quality and feel, very well made, sturdy.
Cons: none to be found.

This is one of the best microphones I have used. I primarily use it whilst gaming or for Skype and was previously using headsets. I decided to switch to a desktop microphone as I found headsets restrictive with poor sound quality on the headphones. I used two cheaper brand desktop mics before settling on this one, the cheaper microphones both broke after a month or so. My previous microphones had poor pick-up ranges and I found I had to lean in to be heard.

This microphone is leagues above other desktop microphones. I can be sat at any distance from my desk and my voice is picked up with crystal clear definition. Additionally the microphone is robust and well built and I know I won't have to go through the hassle of buying another microphone any time soon - it is worth the price given you won't ever need another microphone again.
