Blue was teasing NAMM attendees with two mysterious offerings; first up was “Hampton,” a code-named condenser microphone with a movable head that uses Blue’s highly regarded B1 capsule. Details were scarce, but sources say that the mic will be great for drums and other instruments, and will be quite versatile.It will be available as a single mic or in matched pairs.
Blue was also teasing “Mo-Fi,” a new headphone solution that solves the problem of driving pro-quality headphones from mobile devices, laptops, and other low-power devices. Mo-Fi is said to sound great and to deliver optimal volume regardless of whether it is driven from pro gear, home stereo gear, mobile devices, or computers. — Mitch Gallagher
