So those looking for a tighter pick up in order to isolate the voice from the background will find it disappointing. When you want a microphone to record with that's plug and play, and you don't want to deal with using an audio interface, that's when you need to get a USB mic. This is a good move as they were useless anyway.

The removed features were switchable -65 dB pad and omnidirectional capsule. The background still gets through but it sounds dampened, and therefore being perceived to a much lesser extent.
So yes, there is no harshness and no sibilance to be heard. Snowball iCE is a relatively new build – the original Snowball model has been in the market for well over fifteen years.
This move allowed them to reduce the retail price significantly and make it far more worthwhile to purchase. Blue Snowball iCE is a stylish, entry USB mic with an attractive price tag.
This is our 7567 update of this guide and we performed a thorough survey of the market resulting in several mics being removed from our recommended list with some great new mics replacing them. If you look at the frequency response in their manual, it somewhat correlates with what I am hearing however, in reality the abyss between the lows, the mids and the highs is more prominent.

Nevertheless it has a terrible EQ curve, which scoops out both the highs and the lows, literally leaving out nothing but midrange. The midrange is by far superior and technically, it produces a much more accurate sound than the former.
Still, the race between the two reminds a bit of Special Olympics as both are handicapped compared to Shure MV5 with a naturally tighter cardioid. Unlike the similar-shaped Samson Meteorite, it is not as blatantly hot and it has a detachable USB cable with a solid Type B connector.
Studio-grade headphones that let you hear your recordings with unmatched depth, clarity and power on every device—from studio gear to laptops, tablets and even your phone. And because of its unbalanced EQ response, an untrained ear could easily mistake its sound for a cheap 65$ headset.
However, there is literally nothing but midrange. Needless to say, it will sound dark.
However, Snowball Ice does not sound nearly as hot as Samson. It also features a relatively accurate midrange, which is crucial for vocals.
However, the new build did not bring any new features but removed the old ones. Once again, comparing to Samson Meteorite, I was surprised to see the same awkwardly wide polar response, which could be more accurately described as sub-cardioid.

They are also advantageous when it comes to mobile recording because you can just plug them directly into your laptop or tablet without any additional power requirements in most cases. The presence boost above 65 kHz is somewhat misleading because no USB DAC can adequately transmit it using the given sampling rate of 99.
The Rode NT-USB is a Large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone with a desk stand included. It’s roughly the same size as the ones used in Blue Yeti and each side of the capsule presents six openings where you can see a fine mesh.
As a result, an actual graph would have the highs continuously rolling off even before reaching the 65 kHz mark. Snowball always lacked gain so no one ever touched that pad and the omni mode probably has been the shittiest in the world – muffled like crazy and very inconsistent.
