Logitech Blue Sona Overview

By B&H Photo's
The Broadcast Mic Reinvented
Designed for serious creators seeking to take their content to the next level, the graphite Logitech Blue Sona is an XLR microphone that improves on traditional broadcast mics by solving common challenges for today's streamers, podcasters, YouTubers, and gamers. An advanced, dual-diaphragm and active-dynamic mic capsule, internal shockmount, and supercardioid directional pickup pattern keep Blue Sona focused on your voice, so your stream is free from key clicks, room noise, and any interference or hum from monitors.

With built-in ClearAmp technology that provides +25 dB of additional gain and precisely tuned EQ controls that enable you to quickly customize your sound, the mic captures studio-quality audio without the need for an external mic booster or processing. Featuring an elegant, contemporary design for on-camera use, Blue Sona delivers clear speech with rich bass, less noise from the environment, and easy integration into an existing audio interface or mixer.

This microphone is part of the B&H Virtual Mic Locker, an online tool to help our valued customers determine the sonic differences between popular microphones for podcasting and voice over work. Each microphone was recorded using a Grace Design M103 preamp into a Presonus Quantum 2626 interface.
Your Voice, Upfront
Optimized to Capture Speech

  • The active-dynamic capsule captures smooth low-end sound and superb detail with two diaphragms, one optimized to capture speech while the other absorbs unwanted noise and vibrations.

Tame Your Environment

  • Blue Sona's supercardioid pickup pattern tightly focuses on your voice while taming your environment by rejecting unwanted room and ambient noise, so your voice stays crisp and clean on stream.
  • The built-in shockmount isolates the mic capsule from bumps and vibrations
Studio Sound with ClearAmp Technology
  • Traditional dynamic broadcast mics have low output level, so creators typically purchase an external mic booster to get a good signal for streaming and recording.
  • Blue Sona’s built-in ClearAmp technology delivers strong, +25 dB additional gain for professional-quality sound—no external mic booster required.
  • ClearAmp makes Blue Sona faster to set up and easier to use—just switch on phantom power on your audio interface or mixer and start recording.
Designed for Creators
290° Swivel Mount

  • Blue Sona's sleek, modern design fits any desktop setup. When mounted on a boom arm (available separately), the 290° swivel mount allows for complete freedom of mic placement.


Fine Tune Your Sound for Even More Clarity

  • Remove the switch cover on the back of Blue Sona to reveal the Bass Cut and Presence Boost controls. Test your voice using these switches, reduce plosive, and extend top-end response to dial in the best sound for your content.

Fast Set Up with Pro XLR Connection

  • XLR connection enables you to easily integrate Blue Sona with your audio interface or external mixer.
Custom Look for On-Camera Use
  • Elegant design and swappable windscreens give your stream a custom aesthetic, helping you elevate your Twitch streaming, YouTube videos, podcasts, video calls, and more.
  • Blue Sona comes with two interchangeable windscreens, in red and graphite, so you can customize your look on stream. The mic is also available in two colors: graphite and off-white.
Blue Sound Certified
  • For more than 25 years, Blue has made broadcast-quality sound more accessible to creators and is in the process of becoming the sound of a generation of game streamers, podcasters and YouTubers. True to that history, Blue Sona is an innovative broadcast microphone that brings a modern sound, perfect for today’s streamers and creators

Does this need a cloud lifter?

Does this need a cloud lifter?
Asked by: William
The Logitech Blue Sona Active-Dynamic XLR Broadcast Microphone includes +25 dB from its ClearAmp Active Preamp and should not need a CloudLifter or similar gain boosting product when used with most analog XLR input connections. Typically, whether a CloudLifter is required is dependent on the amount of gain offered by the connected input device.

any particular audio interface you would recommend?
Asked by: Jan
The Logitech Blue Sona 2-Person Active-Dynamic XLR Broadcast Microphone Kit with Cabled Broadcast Arms and Headphones should be paired with a quality audio interface offering two phantom-powered XLR inputs at minimum. The MOTU M2 Desktop 2x2 USB Type-C Audio-MIDI Interface (BH #MAM2), Solid State Logic SSL 2+ Desktop 2x4 USB Type-C Audio/MIDI Interface (BH #SOSSL2P), and the Audient iD14 MKII Desktop 10x6 USB Type-C Audio Interface (BH #AUID14MKII) are a few examples of viable interface pairings for this kit among many.
