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.

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.

"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.
