AESNYC07: Portable USB Mic For Mac And PC

Blue Microphones have followed on the success of their popular Snowball Professional USB Microphone with a new portable design, aptly dubbed the Snowflake. Blue say that the Snowflake is the first professional quality portable USB mic and embodies everything Blue has become known for; stylish looks and exceptional sonic quality. They have combined a USB bus powered capsule with a class compliant design to make the Snowflake truly plug and play on both Mac and PC.
Skipper Wise, President and Co-Founder of Blue Microphones, told us, “We have always valued both form and function in our microphone designs. It’s what makes us uniquely Blue. The Snowflake brings a new level of audio quality and functionality to anyone who owns a computer. It’s one of our most inspired designs yet!�
The Snowflake’s form factor is not only eye catching and modern, but functional as well. The mic folds into a single compact case which also houses a USB cable for easy transport in a laptop bag or even a pocket. Unfolded, the case serves as a desktop stand or a laptop clip which, say Blue, makes the Snowflake a natural for everything from podcasting, calling over the web, narrating a home video, or sketching out a song idea on the go.
Snowflake Features:
  • Professional recording quality on the go
  • Unique design fits on your desktop or laptop
  • Plug and play — no driver needed
  • Perfect for podcasting, internet telophony, voice recognition software, movie narration, music
  • Mac & PC compatible
  • Blue’s renowned circuitry
  • Includes USB cable
Pricing and Availability:
The Snowflake will be available November 1, 2007 for $79 MSRP. More information:
