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.

Blue Snowball Reviews

I haven't really used it yet.

No Longer Brushed Aluminum

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.

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.

question

How would recording brass instruments sound, such as a French horn which has a tendency to have mic distortion, wind-pop and boom when recorded?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Snowball is designed mainly as a podcast mic and tailored toward speech, however also works well for basic music recording. With French Horn in particular, it is rarely close miked at the bell as that is not the intended sound of the instrument. In this regard, from a distance, should not distort the mic. For quality instrument recording a higher quality mic would be recommended such as the Blue Yeti, https://bhpho.to/2k0Nlv0 or Rode NT-USB. https://bhpho.to/2k505oH
