expiredBlue Microphones Snowball USB mic for Mac/PC $40 shipped (orig. $100)

MacMall is offering the Blue Microphones Snowball USB microphone in white (SNOWBALL-MA) for $39.99 shipped. That’s $60 or 60% under the original listing, $20 under Amazon and matching the best price we’ve ever seen on this model.

Blue’s USB mics are an easy and, all things considered, inexpensive way to get much better audio quality for your recordings, podcasts and voice chats. It features a dual capsule design with omnidirectional and cardioid options for different recording situations as well as a -10dB pad switch which helps to minimize distortion on loud recordings. It ships with the mic itself, a silver desktop stand and a USB cable. Keep in mind Snowball doesn’t just work with Mac/PC, using Apple’s Lightning to USB camera adapter (or 30-pin) it also works with iPad.

Like just about all of Blue’s mic options, the Snowball has received a 4.4/5 star rating from over 1,300 reviewers. If you’re interested in something a little more high end, the Blue Yeti condenser will bring even better audio quality and in our review we found the Blue Spark mic to be one of the better USB/Lightning options out there.
