  • A: Hello Tyler, the Blue Snowball Ice will act as an audio recorder for improved audio quality of your videos. It does not have any video recording capability. It is compatible with macOS X or later via USB connection. If your Mac has USB-C ports, you would need an adapter for the USB dongle, which is a USB-A.

GregL65 - 11 months ago, Verified purchaser
The microphone on the only computer I had with a webcam wasn't working, and I needed it for a job interview the next day. So there was no time to order anything in. Compared to other options at other local stores, this one had the advantages of being one of the least expensive while looking like my kids probably wouldn't be able to easily break it, and also wouldn't require an adapter. From the pictures online, I imagined the round part was around the size of a golf ball. So at Target I looked on the shelves for something about that size hanging from a hook. Not finding it, I asked for help, and the clerk pulled out this box from inside a locked glass cabinet on the bottom shelf. The box was almost big enough for a loaf of bread. I was startled at the large size but with no better options I bought it. Opening it at home, I was again surprised at the large size. What I had gone to the store imagining would be about the size of a golf ball was in fact about the size of a grapefruit! But it worked great, and worked on the first try. I tested it and found that the sound on the recieving end on the other side was very good. I had no problem with it at all. Highly recommended! If you have room for it that is!

The microphone works better than my headset, but the sound was tinny. This does not sound like a $50 microphone, it sounds closer to a $20-$25 microphone. very disappointing.

This microphone is fine for video calls for work or school but if you are using this for streaming or content creating I don’t recommend because of the background noise and the quality I would recommend the fifine usb condenser microphone for the price and quality
1 reply from Logitech team - 2 years ago
Hello Xd lol, Thank you for sharing your feedback. I have attached a link to the "Getting Started" support page for the Blue Snowball iCE USB microphone, where you will find product guides and software downloads. I recommend downloading the Blue "Sherpa" software for updates, and adjustments. The Blue Snowball iCE is a Pressure Gradient Condenser microphone with USB digital output. This microphone features a Cardioid polar pattern for capturing vocals, music, podcasts, gaming and more. Being that Snowball iCE is a highly sensitive microphone, you will want to be mindful of the noises that you do not want in the recording. There are many ways to approach sound, depending on what you are going for. Please feel welcome to visit the support website for product support, and you may also enjoy the "Blog" section where you will find Sound Mind | The Blue Journal.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've been using this microphone for a few weeks now and I am very happy with the quality. Since I've only been using for voice calls through Microsoft Teams and Skype, I can't comment on how well it would fair for professional voice recording or Vlogging. As a freelancer who works from a home office, I am often on a call with clients several times a day. The sound that comes from a laptop/desktop microphone is less than desired and I grew tired of having to have a headset plugged in. I am happy to say that this microphone fixes those issues. It has made a massive difference to the quality of the call and I can move around more freely than I could with a headset. For the absolute best sound quality, you have to be quite close to the microphone, which is something I can see being an issue for more professional use cases. However, as I use it mainly for calls, I'm able to be further away and still benefit from the greatly improved sound quality. Overall, I am very happy with the microphone and it completely delivers in terms of what I was looking for.
