Silky smooth Voiceover Microphone from Blue. The Mouse is here.

Don’t let the Mousy stature of this mic fool you. The Blue Mouse delivers killer low-end; about as smooth as it gets for vocals and speech.

The Mouse is a condenser, but handles like a world-class dynamic. The capsule rotates on the stout body giving the Mouse its unique look. The included shock mount works well. I was actually able to adjust the capsule smoothly without making a (noticeable) sound. In the large box, you’ll find the mic cradled in a rosewood finished, velvet lined case. Fit and finish is immaculate.

Besides the shock mount, standard threads on the mic body allow it to be mounted from the bottom.

The sound? Deep and rich, allowing you to roam a little off axis without throwing things off. Even with all the lows, proximity and plosives were never a problem. The Mouse isn’t inexpensive, but delivers with amazingly big sound and equally strong quality. It stands up to the best of them in this price class.

Have a look and listen to the Mouse and let me know what you think?

A fearful, legendary name for a practical, friendly looking microphone.

With a name like ‘Yeti’, visions of the mythological Himalayan snow creature disappear at the site of this Blue USB microphone. Looking at the mic, those thoughts are replaced with visions of a stretched out R2D2.

The Yeti is Blue Microphones latest USB offering; as unique in form and function as its name. This microphone is big and the desktop stand is hefty. However, boom mounting is no problem thanks to the recessed threads at the base.

Feature-wise, the Yeti offers zero-latency monitoring through the adjustable gain headphone amp. A handy mute switch is on front. The back reveals a gain pot above the pattern switch. The Yeti has plenty of gain. The sound is good, but very different depending on the pattern. Four patterns, three 22mm elements. This mic excels at being versatile. The stereo pattern allows voice imaging or instrument separation. The cardioid was a favorite of mine for speech. The figure eight would work fine for interviews and the omni opened things up with an airy sound.

As with most USB mics, the nice part is simply plugging the device in a compliant (1.1 or greater) port and recording. See the Blue microphone site for detailed requirements.

The Yeti is a great value and very versatile. Have a look and listen!
