I own a Blue Microphone SnowBall and that mic rocks! This one is not quite as good, but is very close to the same quality audio. I like this mic very much, it fits nicely on my MacBook and I plan on using it to record my podcast when I don't have the space to use my SnowBall. With this I don't have to worry about spending money on a mixer as it plugs directly into USB. The price is very good, I paid around $50 for it. I would recommended this to anyone who needs to record audio on a laptop. My only concern for the Blue Mic company is that if the USB cable is pulled or moved, the head of this microphone moves very easily and you can not lock it into place unfortunately. So while using it be sure to have it set up before you begin recording.

Great Inexpensive Mic!

by JeffinLA on 5/9/2009

Some friends of mine use the Blue Snowball and recommended it, but I didn't want to spend that much money, so I decided to get the Snowflake. Sounds great and picks up your voice with no effort at all. I plugged it in and it just works. Once thing that took a minute to figure out was how to stand it up on a desk. I forgot to put the white plastic cable holder back on the metal housing. That give it the weight to stand up. Read More
