Compact, sturdy and sensitive
on 15 April 2016
I have a Snowflake that I use for recording weekly episodes of the Motoring Podcast over a Skype/Garageband from hotel rooms around Europe. The mic is very sturdy when folded and lives, without incident so far, at the bottom of my carry-on suitcase. It's worth mentioning that the head does swirl through 270 degrees and I normally store mine with he mic grille concealed and the solid rear of the head facing outwards for, I believe, better protection.
The sound quality's very good - much better than USB headsets at this price point, although it is very sensitive and tends to pick up mouse/trackpad clicks - i find that sitting it on top of my iPad and off the laptop body helps with that though.
Overall I'm very pleased with it indeed. Coupled with a pack of bulldog clips, a load of hotel towels and some ingenuity it allows you to record good-quality audio almost anywhere.
