The Blue Snowball USB Mic makes computer recording easier than ever. Ideal for podcasting, video conferencing, and all-around recording, the Snowball is a USB direct-recording microphone — and it's the next of kin to Blue's unusually hip lineup of spherical microphones.

The Snowball is designed for mobile laptop use and for desktop studio use, with its universal drivers for Mac and Windows and its built-in plug-and-play USB connectivity. A stand and USB cable are included, so all you need to start recording is Blue's Snowball and your computer.

Designed for desktop recording applications, the Snowball incorporates Blue's styling with versatility and ease of use. The mic's universal driver and plug and play USB compatibility make recording into your laptop or DAW quick and easy, while its dual capsule design and three-position switch dial in the desired sound for many applications. 

The Snowball's versatility is achieved by its unique dual-capsule design, with one capsule tailored for vocals and the other for instruments. A 3-position switch on the back of the microphone lets you change between the capsules. The first position activates the cardioid capsule, best suited for a robust vocal sound. The second position engages a -10dB pad that's good for recording electric guitars. The third position activates both Snowball capsules to create an omnidirectional pattern, best for choirs and other widely dispersed sources.
