5 out of 5 stars   Nice mic, really fast shipping

Review submitted for BLUE MICROPHONES Snowball USB Microphone - Gloss Black (BLMSBBK)
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.

Review submitted for BLUE MICROPHONES BLMSBALM - Snowball USB Microphone - Aluminum (BLMSBALM)
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 on March 26, 2013

Review submitted for BLUE MICROPHONES Mikey Digital Recording Microphone for Apple iPhone and iPad (BLMIKEYDIGITAL)
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.
