Blue Ember Overview

The Blue Ember is a cardioid condenser microphone offering an open, detailed sound and an unobtrusive appearance for podcasting, studio recording, live streaming, and more. The hand-tuned condenser capsule yields a wide frequency response of 38 Hz to 20 kHz, making it well suited for voice and instrument capture. Its cardioid polar pattern delivers controlled directivity and optimal off-axis rejection for reduced pickup of room reflections.

High-output electronics in the Ember ensure strong signal levels without extreme preamp gain. The balanced 3-pin XLR output and compliance with 48 VDC phantom power make it compatible with most microphone preamplifiers and audio interfaces. The low-profile, side-address design of the Ember allows versatile positioning in single- and multi-mic configurations. It includes a mic stand mount for easy attachment to a mic stand or tripod.

What is the self noise of the Blue Ember? I have been looking at tech specs on the Blue website and other sources and can't seem to find the stated self noise.
