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 black 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.
