PLAY AS YOU PAY
The Blue Snowflake is a globe-shaped cardioid condenser microphone that can hang over the back of your laptop's display, pop up from your desktop, swivel 360 degrees, and even fold back into its base for easy travel. You can use the Snowflake for everything from chatting on Skype, to narrating a video, to demoing your newest song idea.

Your Laptop's New Travel Buddy

Portability is a huge plus for the Snowflake: it folds into its case to easily fit into your laptop bag. The included 3-foot USB cable even coils up into the base for travel, making it easy to tote your USB mic around from home, to office, to school, to band practice space. When you arrive at your destination, most apps that accept audio will recognize the Snowflake as a USB source. Use your computer's system preferences to adjust the input level if necessary, and you're off to the races. With the Blue Snowflake USB microphone, there's no need for separate sound cards or interfaces, and no worries about the sound quality of your computer's internal sound card.

The Right Mic for the Job

Some USB mics try to pass themselves off as real studio mics, complete with elaborate stands, pop filters, bundled recording software and what-have-you. As a manufacturer of high-end professional studio microphones, Blue knows that when you're producing music in your home studio, you'd rather be using their XLR mics in the first place. So why make a USB mic? The modest little Snowflake knows it's not going to be the heart of anyone's studio, but it's also a worthy replacement for your built-in mic or headset. And like all Blue microphones, the Snowflake sports a slick design that just plain looks good.

Features:

- USB bus-powered cardioid condenser microphone
- Folds into its own case for easy travel
- Designed to fit on desktop or hang on a laptop's display
- Records at up to 44.1 kHz / 16-bit quality
- 3-foot USB cable included

Still recording quickie demos and YouTube videos on your computer's noisy built-in mic? Stuck wearing a nerdy headset when you voice chat or play online games? It's time to upgrade to the Blue Snowflake: a great-sounding, space-saving USB mic for your Mac or PC.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of BLUE products.

Product Description

The Snowflake is the first professional quality portable USB mic and embodies everything Blue has become known for; stylish looks and exceptional sonic quality. Blue has combined a USB bus powered capsule with a class compliant design to make the Snowflake truly plug and play on both Mac and PC.

"We have always valued both form and function in our microphone designs. It's what makes us uniquely Blue," said Skipper Wise, President and Co-Founder of Blue Microphones. "The Snowflake brings a higher 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, making 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.

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 telephony, voice recognition software, movie narration, music
- Mac & PC compatible
- Blue's renowned circuitry
- Includes USB cable

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
