The Blue Snowball iCE Value Kit from B&H includes a Snowball iCE USB condenser microphone, a tripod stand and USB cable, an Auray PFSS-55 pop filter with gooseneck, and Polsen HPC-A30 closed-back studio monitor headphones. This kit can be used to capture audio with clarity and detail for vocals, guitars, drums, and more at CD-quality rates of 16-bit/44.1 kHz.
The Snowball iCE's ball-microphone design features a USB output that allows the audio signal to be fed directly to software-based recording applications without preamplifiers or hardware. It works with Mac or Windows computers and has a cardioid pickup pattern for more focused sound capture.
Furthermore, the kit's Auray PFSS-55 pop filter with gooseneck features double-layered nylon to reduce noise from aspirated plosive sounds. The flexible gooseneck makes it easy to position the filter exactly where you need it.
Finally, the Polsen HPC-A30 closed-back studio monitor headphones are designed for monitoring audio in studio, field, mobile, and DJ applications. They have a collapsible folding mechanism for compact storage and transport. The padded headband provides comfort during extended use.

The USB output allows an audio signal to be fed directly to software-based recording applications without unnecessary preamplifiers or hardware. The Snowball iCE features a cardioid pickup pattern for a more focused sound and generally "hears" whatever the mic is pointed at. The sensitivity and signal character of the Snowball iCE result in clarity and detail while capturing vocals, guitars, drums, and more at CD-quality rates of 16-bit/44.1 kHz. The mic comes complete with a desktop stand and a USB cable so you can begin recording right away.
Auray PFSS-55 Pop Filter with Gooseneck with Springloaded Clamp (5.5" Pop Filter and 13.5" Gooseneck)
The Auray PFSS-55 Pop Filter with Gooseneck with Springloaded Clamp (5.5" Pop Filter and 13.5" Gooseneck) features double-layered nylon to greatly reduce noise from aspirated plosives like p and b sounds. The PFSS-55's double-layered nylon filter gently disperses the explosive rush of air from speaking and breathing, while protecting your microphone from corrosive moisture.
The flexible gooseneck makes it easy to position the filter exactly where you need it, the spring-loaded, clothes-pin clamp provides fast and easy mounting to both stands and desktops. The locking bolt holds the PFSS-55 firmly into place. These features make the PFSS-55 Pop Filter ideal for desktops and also compatible with microphone stands.
Polsen HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones
The HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen offer a solution for experiencing rich and natural sound when listening to music through a mobile device or monitoring a podcast on your computer. These headphones can also be used for DJ work, thanks to the swiveling earcups that let you monitor audio while keeping one ear free.
The HPC-A30-MK2's over-ear design isolates the sound and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions in loud environments, such as a club or on the go. The 10' cable also gives you the freedom to move around while working and terminates in a 1/8" TRS stereo plug, which is compatible with most mobile devices and computers. In addition, a stereo 1/4" adapter is included to plug into a stereo or mixing board.
