The Raspberry Premium Mobile USB Microphone from Blue is a plug-and-play 24-bit/48 kHz microphone that delivers studio-quality sound directly to your Windows computer, Mac, iPhone, or iPad. It can be used to capture audio for voice or instruments in applications for podcasting, voice-overs, streaming, Skype, and more.

Featuring an Internal Acoustic Diffuser (IAD) design that resembles treatments found in studios and concerts halls, the microphone focuses on your voice or instrument while minimizing the sound of the room. Like a portable vocal studio in the palm of your hand, Raspberry gives you professional results everywhere you go.

Additionally, an integrated collapsible stand, a soft-suede carry pouch, USB and lighting cables, and a microphone stand adapter are also included.

Patented Premium Capsule Technology
Prevents distortion and delivers the clarity of a large-diaphragm studio microphone in a small, portable format. The condenser capsule was specifically tuned to sound great up close or at tabletop distance—giving you optimal sound wherever you choose to place the mic

    Blue RASPBERRY reviews

    Raspberry Premium Mobile USB Microphone is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not thrilled with the sound quality I used this mic for voice over work for broadcast while traveling. I know it's a portable mic. But at this price I was expecting deeper bass response and fuller sound. It's mediocre. Not bad, per se, but mediocre. It's also prone to popping and needs a pop filter. The body is nice looking, but it's plastic and highly prone to microphonics, particularly with a headphone attached. It needs to be standing on its stand, forget about hand holding this mic. I'll be selling mine and looking for a better option. I like the Yeti, but it's not portable enough. Looking toward a Rode or Shure solution.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue Raspberry Mic Review. Great palm sized portable mic for recording GarageBand files with my iPhone and iPad. The included 59 inch lightning cable is adequate length. Hoping Blue will provide more cable length options for this IOS compatible microphone. I detached the included stand and installed a Joby GorillaPod Tripod to attach the mic to a music stand, stand light fixture or just about anywhere a GorillaPod can hang. No adapter is needed on the 1/4 inch stud. Recommend removal of the rubber O-ring from the included Blue stand for use with the GorillaPod for a secure fit.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Firmware Update Bricked Mic on Mac Just ran the firmware update on my mac and it looks like it bricked my device! Doesn't work on my iphone/ipad anymore and the light isn't green. Followed the directions exactly... now I have no mic. The device is no longer recognized in the firmware updater software. Since I live outside the USA this is going to be a NIGHTMARE. How can Blue make factory firmware updates that BRICK the $200 mic?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it so far! It's a good, solid, sturdy mic with a clean, reasonably-flat response from the lows to the highs. It comes in very nice packaging, enough so that I regret not making a little unboxing video. The built-in stand is functional for recording on the go, e.g. recording an interview at a cafe, but if you're doing most of your recording at a set workstation, you'll want to use the included adaptor or the Radius II shock mount to hook it onto a boom so that normal interactions with your desk don't leak in through the frame. There are just a few down sides. First, the knobs are inconsistent: the mic level knob has a really nice buttery feel to it, but the headphone volume feels loose, cheap and sloppy. Additionally, perhaps it's a little early to expect USB-C on everything but the mini-USB port on the back harkens back to less happy days charging a Blackberry Pearl. With the included USB-A adapter, using it on the Mac couldn't be easier. Plug it in, fire up Garage Band and choose the input. It also includes a lightning connector to plug into your iDevice for recording on the go. Again, just as easy! However, if you're on one of the 7-series iPhones, remember to bring headphones with an 1/8 plug on them if you want to monitor your recordings live. The Raspberry takes up the Lightning port, so you'll be using the headphone port on the back of the mic in order to hear what's going on.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work out of box, poor support I received the raspberry today. It works with an Imac, but not an Iphone or Ipad. It could be a bad cable as there are 2 cables, but I am stuck on a project and Blue support just has a message saying it can take up to 5 days for them to return my call. I am sending this back and will order a Rode.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blown away!! I bought this to do IVR while traveling. Tested it against the sound in my $4k studio and it sounds 10x better! Im going to be selling some equipment soon and just use this little dynamo! I love it! Only thing that would make it better is a simpler recording app on my phone that does editing on short recordings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soiid purchase. I'm a Pro VO talent, got plenty of mics already, so I didnt NEED another. But I tried it, and the audio quality is solid. Between that and the portable form factor, I'm quite happy with this purchase. With this and an iOS device I get good audio when I can duck into a quiet area in a pinch.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from For casual voice work, this mic is acceptable. Recorded voice audio is fairly flat, not especially warm or full. There is little difference over the built-in mic on my MacBook Pro. However, the length of the USB cord enables me to record at a useful distance from the computer, and the adjustable stand is versatile and holds its position.
