About this product


  • Condenser microphone
  • Plug and play
  • PC and Mac compatible

Product overview

  • Condenser microphone
  • Plug and play
  • PC and Mac compatible
  • Dual capsule design
  • Three operating modes (standard cardioid pattern, cardioid and omnidirectional)
  • Includes 6-inch stand and USB cable in the box

Whether you're recording a guitar at your kitchen table or a complete band in the studio, the Snowball can capture sound with detail unheard of before in a USB mic. Plus, it's a direct plug and play mic that connects to either a Mac or PC - no additional software is needed. With its dual capsule design and unique three-pattern switch (cardioid, cardioid with -10dB pad and omni), the Snowball can handle everything from soft vocals to the loudest garage band - and it's ideal for podcasting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job brilliantly While this has 3 settings for what it picks up, we use the one which picks up all sound, so whatever is said by the group (20 people in a circle) is recorded. Works great. You could use it with any software on the Mac, but Garage with voice input is what we use.

Is this essentially the same Microphone as the blackout model which is £10 more?

Asked by: Gethyn
The Blackout Mic is different , Cardioid microphones are sensitive from the front, meaning they pick up the clearest, quality audio from whatever is positioned in front of them. In contrast, omnidirectional microphones are sensitive to sound arriving from all angles. Mixing the two means that the microphone will pick up sounds from all angles but still isolate unwanted ambient sounds. Omnidirectional cardioid microphones are often used in recording podcasts, vocal audio and with Skype chats. They can also be used for recording musical instruments. The Blue Snowball Aluminium Microphone is a Condenser microphone.

Asked by: Yellow43
Achieving zero background noise may be difficult but you can achieve very close to this with the correct settings in OBS.

Yes this product is suitable for windows 10 and I do believe this would be suitable for your recording environment.
