5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for voice acting and works with Windows 7!, 5 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Blue Microphones Snowball Omnidirectional/Cardioid USB Microphone - Black (Electronics)
I bought this product because I wanted to do some voice acting with an animation I'm working on. This is perfect for basic recording with little or no inteference from background noice. There are three settings for voice, music and double speakers for interview / surround recordings.
It's a nice little microphone and picks up sound really well without annoying clicking and buzzing.

I had no previous knowledge with mics. The most I did recording-wise was with a headset - which produced inferior recordings - so this was bought after a bit if research on the internet. No regrets in buying this product - its small frame means it spends most of the time on my desk without taking up too much space. Very useful if like me if you have trouble keeping a tidy desk.

A few people have been worried about the blue snowball mic not working with Windows 7. I use a windows 7 64 bit laptop and so far there have been no problems. Once plugged in it recognises the mic pretty quickly and the laptop hasn't come up with any error messages. While I cannot speak for other blue products this one works fine with 7.
