Easy to UseI was looking for a simple microphone for home use with my computer because I work from home and must attend interactive webinars.. At the suggestion of the Sweetwater Agent I ordered the Blue Microphone Snowflake. I have used it for webinars online and also when skyping with our family in Alaska. Our family in Alaska said that when we Skype with them our voices are very clear. Great simple microphone that is easy to use and the price was right! I would highly recommend this product!

Works Great!I was really suprised at how well it worked. I have a Rhode NT3 mic but use this one more because it is so easy to use. You just plug into USB and it works right away every time. I use it mainly for recording audio programs and I also use it to record skype calls and my live radio show. I have a mac so I use a program called Call Recorder (15) that splits the conversations and will record video also. Awesome program.

You'll be surprised, it is the perfect mic for a laptop audio sketchpad. Im no audiophile but i know when God hands me a new gadget straight from his workshop! Grab two just for fun! you'll love'em.

Blue Snowflake vs TikiVery good quality sound for voice. Better as you get closer. With ASIO4All drivers and a laptop I was able to obtain low enough latency to monitor through headphones without throwing me off.
This is good for a usb mic. I compared it to the Tiki mic which has built in noise cancellation which works well but at the expense of a little crispness and clarity compared to the Snowflake. However, as a Skype mic it would be fine. If you want a little better sound quality and noise is not an issue, the Snowflake gets my vote. The Tiki is significantly smaller though, better for portability.

Nothing SpecialHas pretty good sound quality, especially if you put the foam wind screen for a Shure SM58 over it or a pop filter in front of it. Very poor base design makes this tippy and unstable in many configurations. Like too many USB mics, you can't monitor the mic so there are latency issues. Mine will be given away or go on eBay. I replaced it with a Samson GoMic.
