Blue Ember Small-diaphragm Condenser Microphone
The Ember appeared on our recommended list for Condenser Mics Under $100 from March 2021 until it was out-ranked by other mics in March 2022.
The Blue Ember features a compact form factor with a tight cardioid polar pattern.
Primarily designed for streaming but also equally adept for vocals and voice overs, the Ember has a custom, side address diaphragm and a slightly scooped midrange for a more "open" sound that's ready for broadcast.
Since it's designed as a broadcast mic, vocals sound present without being sibilant.
You need to us a pop filter or screen otherwise plosives tend to get emphasized without it.
For streaming, voice recordings, singing and other general recording duties, the Blue Ember is a clear sounding, compact mic that does the job well.
