Aspects of The Blue Snowball

The Design

blue snowball microphone review

Snowball is unique in a way such that you cannot mistake it with any other. It is designed with a ball-like shape having a diameter of 4 inches. To its bottom, it has a threaded hole that is simply used as an attachment to the tripod stand. The bottom of this microphone also has an adjustable height of about 5 to 6.5 inches.

In addition to the above, its front side is so beautiful, as long as you do not mind checking at the Blue’s chromed plastic logo which is a wire mesh grille. There is also an integrated foam wind screen which protects the Blue Snowball’s two-0.5 inch microphone cases. You will also find a LED, closer to the top of this microphone. The LED indicates when you have connected the Snowball to the computer. At the back of the Snowball, there is a single audio connection. Technically, it is not an audio connection, but rather a metallic-reinforced USB port. Still at the back of the Snowball, there is a convenient 3 position switch for the three microphone’s recording modes.

Its Features

Apart from this microphone looking so cool on the desk, the Snowball has different small and big features which are worth knowing. The greatest asset of this Snowball is its sonic flexibility usually offered by the two microphone cases. It uses two identical capsules in order to achieve a stereo recording. However, the Snowball sticks to monophonic recording. In addition to this, it also dedicates the use of one case to a unidirectional cardioid recording pattern. This is well-suited for the instrument or single voice and allows the other case to take sound from all the directions in an omni-pattern. The users can easily switch between the two cases so as to suit the recording needs. This can be done by using the mode switch at the back of the microphone.
