Blue Snowball iCE USB Condenser Microphone with Accessory Pack (White)

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 white 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.

Auray PFSS-55 Pop Filter with Gooseneck with Spring-Loaded Desktop Clamp

The Auray PFSS-55 Pop Filter with Gooseneck with Springloaded Desktop Clamp features double-layered nylon to greatly reduce noise from aspirated plosives like p and b sounds.

The flexible gooseneck makes it easy to position the filter exactly where you need it, the spring-loaded, clothespin clamp provides fast and easy mounting. The locking bolt holds the PFSS-55 firmly into place. These features make the PFSS-55 Pop Filter ideal for desktops and also compatible with microphone stands.

Polsen HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones

The HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen offer a solution for experiencing rich and natural sound when listening to music through a mobile device or monitoring a podcast on your computer. These headphones can also be used for DJ work, thanks to the swiveling earcups that let you monitor audio while keeping one ear free.

The HPC-A30-MK2's over-ear design isolates the sound and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions in loud environments, such as a club or on the go. The 10' cable also gives you the freedom to move around while working and terminates in a 1/8" TRS stereo plug, which is compatible with most mobile devices and computers. In addition, a stereo 1/4" adapter is included to plug into a stereo or mixing board.

Mobile
The HPC-A30-MK2 headphones deliver a rich sound for listening to audio on a mobile device. Whether you're listening on a smartphone, an iPod, or a tablet, these headphones deliver detailed sound even in noisy environments.
Over-Ear Design
The over-ear design isolates sound in loud environments and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions. This design is good for listening to music on a busy street, and for DJs who need to monitor their audio in a noisy club.
DJ Applications
The headphones are suitable for DJ applications and include a tuned bass response for low-end clarity. The pivoting earcups are ideal for one-ear or on-the-shoulder monitoring. A padded headband offers to keep you comfortable during a lengthy session.
Broadcast and Podcast
The headphones allow for monitoring audio on a laptop or in a home studio as well as recording a vlog on a smartphone.
Swiveling and Rotating Earcups
If you're a DJ who likes to keep one ear free, you can swivel one of the earcups for on-the-shoulder monitoring. The earcups also rotate 90° so you can turn one of the earcup outward for one-ear handheld monitoring.
10' Cable
A headphone cable that's too short is almost like sitting on the sidelines—you can't be part of the action. If you need to move around while you work, the 10' cable will allow you to move about freely.

Build quality always A+++ For best performance, need to be within 6 of mic for best pickup/gain, even when audio is already max'd out in your computer. Too bad they couldn't have added a selectable gain control.

I use Blue Snowball mics in several locations. Great quality for a great price. Now with online meetings for almost everything, I've found a new use for these great inexpensive mics.

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

question

does this cancel out background noise?
Asked by: Anonymous
Microphones typically do not cancel out sound. The microphone cannot determine or distinguish noise from the desired audio. The cardioid pattern of this mic is designed for close use and will generally pick-up sound mainly from the front. Sound that is reflected off walls, ceilings, and floors may still be picked-up. Some unwanted noise or sounds can often be edited out of the final mix as well using DAW software on your computer.
