Blue Snowball overview

  • 1Description

The Snowball iCE from Blue incorporates Blue's revolutionary Ball-microphone design with the added convenience of a USB output. 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.

    Blue Snowball reviews

    Snowball iCE USB Condenser Microphone with Accessory Pack (Ice) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 109.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality on a budget I've used it many times, sounds are clear, and crisp. The Snowball Ice itself is quite sensitive to noise in my opinion which is not a bad thing but at other times can be as it picks up noises easily (i.e. A thump from the neighbors in an apartment complex) to avoid such I used a stocking cap as a filter lol. It is a great inexpensive tool and sounds 10x better than any other mic the first thing you'll probably notice is that your voice sounds different when using the mic apart from what I stated in the first sentence. Best of all it easily adapts to the iPad without the installation of software a huge plus!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So worth the investment! I wanted to take my company's YouTube videos to a more professional level. Having just bartered away my $ bluenote microphone from 2002 for other services (thinking, when/why would I ever need such an expensive mic?), I realized my videos sounded too amateur and were hurting my chances at more views.I invested a mere $ in snowball, after reading friend's review of it, and I was NOT LET DOWN! The sound was crustal clear, and immediately made my videos sound more professional and pleasing to listen to. Highly recommend for anyone with mild recording needs and anyone looking to increase views & credibility on YouTube!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's white so it's cheaper This is a good quality USB mic for recording VO, podcasts, skype, etc at home. It's not studio quality, of course, so don't expect professional-sounding audio. But it's a huge, affordable step up from the built-in mic on your computer.The tripod mount and shape of the mic is a bit unwieldy. It sits awkwardly to the side of my computer most of the time.Buy the white (Ice) model. It is $ cheaper from the black model, and the differences are purely cosmetic. I repeat: This is the same microphone as the other colors of Snowball mics, but cheaper.Fair warning: The white casing really shows dirt, especially if you take it off road or out on the highway.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snowball iCE Delivers as Promised We needed a mic for podcasting, something that could be portable if needed or packed away if unused, yet retain sound quality on a budget. This iCE unit by Blue was the right choice, and we're entirely happy with the smaller footprint of the unit, as well as the sound quality. Since it's a cardioid-only mic, this was perfect for voice recording. Noise levels are low, and the sensitivity tracks volume quite well, so you don't need to worry about how close or far you are (within reason) and it adjusts quickly. Study construction, solid connections. We wish that Blue shipped these with a more solid desktop tripod, especially when fitting a pop-filter to it, but so far it's holding up well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I approve Haven't really done much with it, yet. But I did lay down some tracks using Audacity. I am going to really enjoy this mic. Very sensitive. I work up really close as I don't project much. It's just fine with that. Very clean. Surprisingly little spatter. I use a RealTek audio (motherboard) and the mic patched-in automatically. 64-bit Vista is no issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Microphone I use the mic everyday playing online and it is crystal clear. Even being a teenager I am no longer called a little girl while people can hear my true voice. Clean and simple plug-in and use. Side note: Not many people know this but the quality on the Mic for at least me was one setting below max quality in windows, recording devices, properties, advanced.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EZ plug and play design made it a snap The easy plug and play design made it a snap to install and put to use. The recording quality was awesome right out of the box and made a huge difference in the video and audio feeds I create. It is a little cubersome to move around but worth the space it takes up in sound quality.
