  • Definitely a Fantastic Mic - but be forwarned

    4.0 out of 5 stars

Balanced, and just over all pleasing. There are a couple things to note though. It does not come with a case and I cannot find one for purchase from blue. So carting this thing around is not a good idea.

    The other issue is the level control. The digital in and out takes some tweaking. For instance on my mac I have to go into the audio midi controls every time I use it and adjust the volume for the output there. The knob on the front of the mic is buggy and inaccurate. Don't let this persuade you to buy a different mic though. It is easily dealt with by using the audio control panel on your computer.

    The final thing is either great or not so great depending on what you're doing. The mic is sensitive. If you running an AC, a TV downstairs, have birds chirping outside, heavy breathing, hard drives humming, anything at all... IT WILL PICK IT UP. If used for basic podcasting it's fantastic but if you want to record serious tracks with it you better get somewhere quiet.

    Overall this mic has been wonderful and easy to use. The 192k out makes a huge difference when listening back to your Itunes or recorded stuff.

  • Wonderful MIC! A real "studio-in-a-box"!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

For $249, it is cheap compared to what you would need to buy.

    Once you install the driver, it works instantly! A little downside of the driver is that you have to go download it off the Blue Website (they should include it on a CD). Esthetically, it looks FANTASTIC on your desk. The conception is really sturdy and solid (weight is there to prove it).

    Now the sound! It sounds GREAT. A big problem I've had in the past with recording on a computer was having to remove the HISS in the back of the audio with the audio editing software. With this MIC you sound flat without any noise. This is a really sensitive microphone, so it's picking up EVERYTHING, so your studio must be quiet. You could use a portable soundproof chamber to help out.

    Finally, it is a great piece of sound equipement for the SEMI-PRO day-to-day applications.

    I got this for a birthday present a month ago and I can now say I LOVE the product. I still have yet to get the shock mount shown I got this for a birthday present a month ago and I can now say I LOVE the product. I still have yet to get the shock mount shown in the pics to get a better angle. So you ask why I love it...well it's the highest quality mic for it's price I've ever heard! You can record absolutely anything you want on it and it handles vocals quite well. It's exactly what I wanted for the dual XLR and USB connections. Be sure when you order to get 2 regular XLR cables as the provided one is about 6 inches long so a joke. Also, be careful when you first plug into XLR to turn the gain all the way down as I made the mistake of shaking the whole house when I didn't, haha. Overall, amazing mic, worth the price.

A few hundred dollars sounds like a lot but this mic is totally worth purchase price on the consumer level.

    For podcasting, there is no where else to look. This is the mic to get, it allows for digital or analog connection and has multiple mic styles to allow for roundtable discussion, interview style bi-direction, basic cardoid, and even true, analog L-R stereo (Think the pan effect in Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train").

    For those complaining about picking up outside audio, this is something typical of condenser microphones. You ALWAYS want to be in a quiet area when recording serious audio.
