Streamline your digital recording setup with the Blue Microphones Snow Ball Ice, a USB microphone designed for podcasters, streamers, and online content creators. This USB mic is easy to use and sounds good out of the box, so you'll be up and running in no time at all. The microphone is presented here in a black finish.

The mic's cardioid polar pattern naturally minimizes room noise by focusing its audio capture on whatever is in front of the mic, keeping audio pickup of the back an sides of the capsule to a minimum. This is great for content creators who don't have fancy room treatment. The mic comes with its own stand and USB cable, so no need to buy accessories there. Also, the Snow Ball Ice's driverless operation ensures connectivity to your computer right out of the gate: you won't need to download any additional software to have your computer recognize this microphone. Just plug it in, open your recording software or favorite VoIP platform, and your voice will be heard.

For Your Voice
Whether you're solo podcasting, streaming game-play, or just need to VoIP with people over Skype, Zoom, or Discord, the Snowball ICE will offer a clear and present sound so that your voice will be heard.
Fits Your Needs
This mic is perfect for recording directly to computers, be they mac or windows systems. With the right, separately available adapters, you can also record with Android and iOS devices.
Quality Digital Capture
The mic records audio at 16-bit / 44 kHz, giving you the CD-standard in digital quality for a great sound.
Simple to Set Up
Just mount the Snowball Ice on the included stand, plug the mic into your computer's USB port with the included cable, select it as a device in your recording or VoIP software, and you're ready to get to work. The mic runs off your device's power, so no need to plug it into a wall. With driver-free operation, you won't have to download pesky software to get it up and running.

Blue Snowball Reviews

3rd One, All Have Been Charms

Works as intended for the price. This is the 3rd one I own, and all have allowed me to teach and game without issue

Great microphone

I was sketchy about B&H when I looked up ''Blue Snowball'', $39.99 sounded like a sketchy price for a microphone, but after I placed my order, it shipped a few hours after ordering, I don't trust DHL after my phone case was in transit FOREVER they claimed it as ''LOST''. With this microphone though, it arrived in 4 days after shipping. I am a variety streamer and I was looking for a new microphone. Someone recommended BLUE MICROPHONES, so I looked for the cheapest microphone, and Blue Snowball was my only option since the YETI was $100. This microphone has worked ever since I got it all setup and has been working since. Great customer service helping me get the microphone setup.

i simply got a cheap USB microphone that i could put on a boom arm for the simple convenience of not having to use my headset mic. it's better than my headset mic from what people have told me and the convenience of not having to take off my headset to get up whenever is also working without fail. ---CONS-- -The red light can't be turned off -No mute button

No Longer Brushed Aluminum

By Jais

The photos and product name no longer match the product. This is now just "aluminum". A little disappointed with B&H. The mic works well, but it doesn't look great.

question

Im trying to record a friends band and the audio from the video cameras is kinda distorted from one camera to the other when editing clips. Can I use this microphone with a usb to lightning adapter for my iPhone 7plus and record the audio or should I use my mac?
Asked by: felix
The Blue Snowball iCE is a great mic but it's mono and ideal for voice-overs or podcasts. I would highly recommend you consider the Zoom IQ7 (B&H# ZOIQ7). It has the ability to connect directly to the lighting port of your iPhone and record high quality stereo audio.

What USB connector is used an A or C?

What USB connector is used an A or C?
Asked by: Richard
The USB connector on the Snowball iCE microphone is standard USB Type-B (not mini or micro). You can use a USB Type-B to USB Type-A cable like the Pearstone USB 2.0 Type-A Male to Type-B Male Cable - 6 ft (B&H # PECUAMUBM6) or a Type-B to Type-C cable like the StarTech USB Type-C Male to USB Type-B Male Cable - 3.3' (B&H # STUSB2CB1M). The cable you need is dependent on the type of USB connector that your computer has. You can also use an adapter on a Type-A connector to convert it to Type-C, like the Kramer USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C to USB Type-A Adapter (B&H # KRADUSB31CAE).

question

Does it work well with Adobe Premiere pro?
Asked by: Abdul razak
The Blue Snowball iCE will work into Adobe Premiere Pro. Whether it is the right mic of choice for the application depends entirely on what the application is. The Snowball iCe is used for capturing studio-quality audio for vocals, music, and multimedia production; just to list a few.
