5 out of 5 stars   Nice mic, really fast shipping
May 01, 2015
Review submitted for BLUE MICROPHONES Snowball USB Microphone - Gloss Black (BLMSBBK)
Verified Purchaser

Verified Reviewer
Pros: The microphone works well, on the directional setting it doesn't seem to pick up much background noise that occurs to the sides. No issues for me with low volume (some people have complained in online reviews that they can't turn up the volume enough). I use it for phone calls and skype only. I don't remember the exact details, but shipping was very fast. I think 2 days after placing the order the package arrived. Impressed with Buydig and would recommend them.

4 out of 5 stars   great but maybe not for professionals.
By Kburra (blue ridge, GA) March 29, 2013
Review submitted for BLUE MICROPHONES Snowball USB Microphone - Alluminum (BLMSBALM)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Clear Sound, Durable, Versatile, Affordable
Cons:
Other Comments: the Snowball is the perfect microphone for beginners as well as experienced users. while the Yeti is a louder mic, you can't beat the price/performance of the Snowball. i use it primarily in group commentary on setting 3. all of our voices were picked up without a problem and some of use were a good distance away. the only grips i have about it are pretty minor. the cable is a little too short at one of our locations but that is rarely a problem. if you are on a budget like we are, the Snowball might be the mic for you but if you are a porfessional or require high end mics, you might find that this one falls a little short. other than that, it's great!

4 out of 5 stars   Good for recording band rehearsals
By Bass Fass (Amityville, NY) March 26, 2013
Review submitted for BLUE MICROPHONES Mikey Digital Recording Microphone for Apple iPhone and iPad (BLMIKEYDIGITAL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good sound, Works out of the box
Cons: 3 Levels Of Sensitivity
Other Comments: I bought this to record my band's rehearsals. The sound quality is a great improvement over the iPhone's built-in mic -- recordings now have more bass and less overbearingly tinny cymbals. I am using it with Blue FiRE 2 and I'm pretty happy with the sound now. I play in a rock band, and it can get loud. There was a lot of clipping using the iPhone's built-in microphone (and the same software). Now, even in a small room with loud guitars and drums, the integrity of the sound is pretty good. I listed "Only 3 levels of sensitivity" as a con, but it may be fine for most people. I just thought a slider might give it more versatility. The lowest setting has no clipping and the recording is a little quiet, but I haven't tried the middle setting yet. I can't comment on any other uses, as I've only used it for this one thing one time, but I'm pretty pleased with the results. If you are considering a stand-alone digital recorder for the same price (and you already have an iPhone/ipod/ipad), this is probably a better microphone, and you won't have to deal with and DRM issues getting your music off the recorder.

4 out of 5 stars   Great Product / Poor Service
By Alphalampy (New Orleans, LA) March 09, 2013
Review submitted for BLUE MICROPHONES Mikey Digital Recording Microphone for Apple iPhone and iPad (BLMIKEYDIGITAL)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great product
Cons: Seems cheaply made
Other Comments: I use the product for student recordings, professional rehearsal recordings and some entertainment recordings. Really great sound recreation, and after a little tinkering, got a little more control out of it. Requires purchased software on my iPad to get full dynamic control out of the microphone.

By I am Blue (Cookeville, Tn) January 01, 2013
Review submitted for BLUE MICROPHONES Mikey 2.0 Recording Microphone for iPod and iPhone (BLM4920MKYR)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Inexpensive
Cons: Software Not Available
Other Comments: The software is not in the app store. Bought this for my touch 2g. Blue customer service gave a list of compatible software. Unfortunately, none of it was not compatible with my touch. Bottom line is I haven't been able to use it.

1 out of 5 stars   Good for the past
By Slow Reader (Santa Fe, NM) December 14, 2012
Review submitted for BLUE MICROPHONES Mikey 2.0 Recording Microphone for iPod and iPhone (BLM4920MKYR)
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: BuyDig titles this product, "Microphone for iPod and iPhone", and describes it "Mikey 2.0 turns your iPod or iPhone into a high quality mobile recording device." You have to scroll down a page to find out that they mean the archaic iPod and iPhone models that Apple hasn't sold for two years or more. I have the original Mikey, which doesn't work with the iPhone 4/iPod 4. I imagined that the Mikey 2.0, advertised as working with iPhone and iPod, would work with current models. I was wrong. There is a new version, which does work with current/recent models of iPhone and iPod. It is called "Mikey"! So a product called simply "Mikey" could refer to the old original, or to the current model that is newer than the Mikey 2.0. Misleading/confusing on the part of both BuyDig and Blue Microphones. Only buy this if you have older iDevices.
