We recently bought a Blue snowball microphone to help record our YouTube videos! So, what exactly is in the box? Check it out below!
To start, I can’t say the packaging is too impresive, the box looks like it was designed in the mid 2000’s. contrasting complementary colors and overly colored light sources in the product images. Well, packaging is only packaging. It’s supposedly one of the best entry level microphones you can buy. So let’s get a closer look and not judge this book by it’s cover.
First impressions (without use)
The packaging was very sturdy and clearly has kept the product safe during shipping. However, the microphones weight is multiple times that of the stand! The stand is a cheap chromed plastic. You can only really tell this when touching or adjusting it, so that means something I guess. The redeeming quality is that the feet are rubber which helps it grip surfaces better than if it were just the light plastic. Although this microphone was $60(USD) it makes me think that the stand was really an after thought by the company. At least the microphone feels solid and has a good amount of weight to it. Now I just need get a better stand. This one feels too cheap and unstable to use it for too long. I think it really should be excluded or raise the price and include a better one so customers get a better first impression of the product.
Now it’s time to go use it to see if it lives up to it’s reviews online! Check back soon for our review!
