    Great Microphone that will Improve the Quality of Home Recordings!

    The audio this microphone produces in voice mode is at least as good, if not better, than anything I could create through hours of post-production editing. Nessie is going to be a real time saver.

    The mute button is a little sensitive. It’s a capacitive button which means you simply have to touch it for it to respond. A very light brush across its surface can cause Nessie to mute. The button is very sensitive and it became a little annoying when I tried moving the mic into a different position. Several times I inadvertently turned mute on when I held the base to move the mic. I didn’t realize that one of my fingers had brushed against the button. When mute is turned on the LED in the base slowly blinks. I wish the mute button was a little higher up on the neck.

    There’s not much to mention about the adjustable serpentine neck. The head’s range of motion is limited.

    Nessie works well with Dragon Dictation. With the mic set in voice mode, I ran through Dragon Dictation’s voice training. It didn’t miss a word. Even when I dictated some real text later on, the word recognition was perfect. There wasn't one mistake. This microphone will improve the quality of any home recording.

    Fantastic Product.

    I have had one for quite some time now and it really is a fantastic microphone. It's perfect for the home user, whether recording podcasts, music tracks, or just chatting with friends, it does the job and does it very well. This is the second time I have owned a Blue Microphone (My first was a Snowball) and it certainly won't be the last. I highly recommend it.

    Great Microphone

    I can't compare this to the other mics in the Apple Store. I haven't bought them. However, I can say without a doubt that I love this microphone for voice. I haven't tried it with music yet. I love the heavy feel. This is a solid piece. It looks very stylish. After making a few voice recordings I am really quite surprised the difference that a very high qualify microphone makes. I actually like my voice on the recordings. I have tried headsets before. I never cared for the feel and I didn't like the quality. This is much different.
