Updated review. Bought about 7 months ago and it recently broke. I've used it sparingly for a few podcasts. Initially I thought the audio sounded nice but after comparing it to other mics I have (Rode NTK, AKG C3000B, AKG C414) it just doesn't measure up to good professional quality recording mics. At the most it is good for individual vocals on streaming podcasts, which is what it really is intended for.

Gotta dock a star for Blue's customer service. It took a full week before they replied back to me with a return authorization and they won't even send me a mailing label. I have to eat the shipping cost! I also have to dock another star because they "inadvertently" let me know this was a B-Stock when I registered the serial no. with them! Blue Microphones is selling B-Stock as if they were brand new on their Amazon store! Something was wrong with this microphone to begin with. No wonder it died in less than 7 months with hardly any use at all.

I'm shipping it back at my expense and hope they will honor the warranty. But from my recent experiences with Blue microphones I can't recommend them. Wouldn't buy from Blue again.

 The size of the mic is great, it looks nice, and the stand is very nice. Audio quality is really good especially when you tweak it a bit in post. I've included some sample audio without and then with noise removal. I'll most likely be switching from a blue spark and audio interface to just this as the audio is good enough and I don't want to deal with so many cables anymore.

This is a legitimate review of a product I bought with my own money. Just putting this out there.

This is honestly the best PC microphone you can buy on a budget. I haven't found any better condenser microphones for a cheaper price that actually work well with a PC.

- Crystal clear sound
- You plug it into your PC and it works out of the box, no setup needed
- Only $40 - best mic in the price range

- Picks up some background noise, but you literally just adjust the microphone sensitivity on your computer and you're fine.

I would definitely look into this mic if you are trying to get into doing YouTube or streaming. There are obviously better options out there, but if you are on a budget, this is definitely what you want to be getting. This microphone also works well with all PC games that I play (CSGO, PUBG, Overwatch), so if you would rather not have a headset mic when playing games, this works well.

I would definitely recommend this microphone!

Great entry level microphone for streamers. Just remember to go into windows sound control settings and change recording quality to 2 channel, 16 bit, 48000 Hz. DVD Quality. The reason 90 percent of the owners of this microphone are receiving poor quality is because this setting isn’t changed.
