    Blue COMPASS reviews

    Compass Premium Tube-Style Broadcast Boom Arm is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy and modern I'm a voice actor and needed a new mic arm, this came up in my search. I liked the look and the reviews so I ordered it. I use a Sennheiser 416 so the only downside is that the mic isn't heavy enough to weigh it down so I need to rely on the hinges staying in place. Which they do but the middle hinge is a touch too tight so it moves up periodically. Not enough to be an issue though, it will drift upwards about an inch a week. Which I'm sure will go away with time. Nonetheless fantastic arm, comes with both a clamp and a drilled base if you want to mount it. Love it, excellent product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Boom Arm I have been using the Blue Yeti microphone with the desk stand over the past year and finally decided to clear some clutter off my desk as my work has been requiring more audio stuff recently.� As I looked at options for a boom arm, I was deeply concerned about the ratings I saw regarding load weights, cable runs etc.� The Blue Yeti microphone is fairly heavy and I was disappointed by most reviews of other boom arms.� Then I saw the Blue Compass tube style boom arm- figured that if the company that made the microphone supplied a boom arm it should hold their microphone.�� In my small office setting, the clamp to the desktop provides plenty of support, the three-position compression spring adjustment points adequately holds the microphone at the proper reach and elevation without sag or drift ( it takes some playing with to get the right tension on each of the adjustment points). I have both the microphone, isolation/suspension bracket for microphone and foam pop filter installed without any sag or drift problems.� In addition, since I use a USB connection from microphone to laptop, I was also concerned and confused by the description in other boom arms about cables and fastening - but the Blue Compass tubular boom arm has a built-in cable run with built-in flexible hold downs for the wiring that keeps the cable out of sight and neat. Overall, the design and support capacity totally meet my needs and is a clean professional-looking addition to allow me to keep my microphone close at hand yet easily moved out of the way when not in use.� Is it the cheapest out there -no but in terms of convenience for small office/desk arrangement and non-professional - you will not be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ohhhh yeah! I wasn't sure that the Blue Compass would be as stout as I wanted it to be. I was wrong. It is plenty stout, and has a really nice internal spring. Once you have it set with mic/shock mount, it not going anywhere....unless you want it to do so!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks good but a deeply flawed product When I initially discovered the product I was set on purchasing something completely different. I was looking for Yellotec's m!ka Mic Arm. But since that costs around $400 I decided to go with Blue Compass instead thinking it would be roughly the same. Right off the bat I was not impressed with the tension. The system inside the arm spans the entire length of the unit which means that you can't individually adjust the tension on separate segments. Before the mic is even screwed on, you can't have it hold a certain position. Very inconvenient if you're reconfiguring your setup and need to change the mics. The tightening knobs are made of plastic and don't have enough grip. The boom arm was greasy out of the box and left a black oil residue on my hands. Another thing which is just unacceptable. Lastly, if you're going to use this with anything other than Blue mics, be aware that Shure sm7b will have a hard time with the clearance when your plug your XLR cable in because the terminal is too short and it rubs up against the joint. I appreciate that Blue was able to make something attractive at this price point, but this needs a revision.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Much sturdier than the cheaper boom arms out there. Worth the extra price.
