What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Blue Spark Digital Condenser Microphone - Lightning Version
  • Better than blue yeti(yeti is a lot heavier, catches a lot of background noise, stand doesn't have shock mount).
  • First I'll say this microphone is beautifully made and looks very sharp on any desk.
  • The audio and build quality is amazing, the microphone volume is perfect every time and the stand has a great shock mount. Perfect.
  • Solid piece of kit. Very easy to set up and produces good quality output.
  • Looks good, and comes with a lovely pouch to keep it in.
  • The metal mic screws into plastic threads of the metal stand and one needs to be very careful while screwing it, otherwise the threads will be damaged for sure and due to plastic/rubbery caps being used on mute/volume/gain & FOCUS ON/OFF switches, the caps pop off easily.

What customers say about "Features"
Blue Spark Digital Condenser Microphone - Lightning Version
  • Clear and crisp sound recording, easy-to-use mic and sits like a king on the desk:)
  • Being a USB microphone it is very convenient and doesn't require any external audio interface. You can also use it with your iPad if you're into that, may be good for those recording while travelling.
  • This is a really amazing Mic. Much better than the Blue Yeti in my opinion. This is more like a professional mic and really makes you sound like a Radio DJ.
  • So about sound quality. On a technical level I don't have much to complain about. Audio is crisp and clear and doesn't pick up too much ambient noise.
  • Fabulous sound quality. The best - no exaggeration - microphone I have ever had and tried.
  • The usb socket connected to the microphone is a bit fragile can easily be tagged and come off easily , looks like not going to last for constant use.
