1st product worked great 2nd was a lemon


from Bozeman, MT  -  Experienced

We purchased this product a few years ago and loved it so much that when we needed a second one we went picked the same one. This one however, would not install the drivers. Support told us that it could be a bad device and to return it to get another. The second one still would not install. I asked for the actual driver file and was told that was not possible. Support is saying it could be a conflict with the Dell drivers on the Dell laptop.Now we have spent almost as much in shipping returning it as we did to buy it.


Plug n wait a sec then Play!


from Riverside, CA  -  Professional Musician

Make sure you have an internet connection the first time you plug this Mic to a USB port since it autoloads Windows 7 drivers first before it csn be functional. After that you'll need to go SELECT Blue Snowball in your program's input device window in order to use it.


Great inexpensive mic.


from Boulder, CO  -  Novice

I use it for voiceover for wildlife videos we make and it works perfectly well for that.


User Friendly


from Tavares, Florida  -  Novice

I have used this mic to record voice audio which was then broadcast onto an internet radio station. Quick set up, download whatever preferred editing/recording program you like to use on your computer and it's ready to go. Works best in an environment without a lot of background noise.
