Blue Microphone

Blue Microphones was founded in 1995 to improve the front-end of audio recording by utilizing the increased bandwidth benefits enabled by digital technology. Advances in digital processing (e.g. extended frequency response, dynamic range, project recording capability) fundamentally changed the recording process as well as the potential for microphone performance. Basing many of their concepts, designs, and technology on knowledge gleaned from years of repairing and improving classic microphones from a wide variety of manufacturers, but by simultaneously integrating new technologies, materials and a first-hand knowledge of today's recording process, Blue began to pioneer the perfect analog input devices for the digital age.

Starting with state-of-the-art technology that ensures the purest possible signal path and Class A fully discrete circuitry with no ICs, pads, or filters, each microphone is designed to fill a specific role in a recording repertoire. Every single design contains its own propriety capsule that is hand-tested and approved to capture specific sonic signatures in specific ways. The first proprietary design, the Blueberry (Electronic Musician 2000 Editor's Choice Microphone of the Year) was designed and engineered at the behest of John Gass, a Grammy award-winning engineer/mixer, who asked Blue if it was possible to create a contemporary pop vocal mic that also substantially eliminated the need to spend hours "EQing" or over-processing the signal source. The Blueberry's success led to future Blue designs that focused solely on delivering the best possible reproduction of specific vocal or instrument types. The result is a portfolio of professional microphones that create a palette of sounds, enabling artists to realize the sonic landscape of their vision.

At the turn of the millennium, after receiving an early version of Apple's software program GarageBandTM, the team at Blue realized that project studio recording presented the next revolution of the recording industry. Believing that the lack of a high-quality USB microphone to protect the signal source would slow down this revolution, Blue developed the Snowball, now the #1 selling wired condenser microphone in the world. Throughout the development process, the Snowball was designed specifically with musicians in mind; however, people very quickly began to adopt the product for consumer applications, such as podcasting, chat, and narration. Out of this, Blue's line of consumer audio products was born, solidifying Blue's belief that everyone, everywhere should have access to great audio.

Blue is 100% committed to getting the very best microphones in the world into the hands of those who have a passion for high quality audio; this is our heritage and will always be the core focus of everything we do. We also realize that great sound enhances every environment, and for this reason Blue has leveraged its pro-audio DNA to launch a line of products catering to life outside the studio. These include high-quality USB products for both Mac and PC, iPod accessories, and an XLR-to-USB converter that allows everyone to take advantage of the quality and performance inherent in every Blue microphone on their computer. From the uncompromising and revolutionary Bottle to the HD audio/video Eyeball webcam, every product reflects Blue's rare expertise and inimitable design sense. We encourage you to audition each Blue microphone to discover the ideal sonic character for your audio needs.
