Most of us probably know Blue microphones for their longtime podcasting and gaming favorite, the Blue Yeti. But the brand has plenty of other options on offer, and today, one of its most unique, the foldable Blue Snowflake USB microphone, is on sale on Amazon for $30, down from a list price of $59. (It frequently sells for between $40 and $50.)
This compact microphone is great for use with laptops, as its folding nature makes it easy to take on the go. Even better, it transforms into its own stand, so you won’t need to carry around multiple pieces to capture your sound. The Snowflake even has a built-in clip to fit most laptop lids.
Blue’s plug-and-play technology means you won’t need a driver to get recording, and this microphone’s USB cable also fits tidily into its folded-up state, meaning you won’t need to keep a bunch of cables organized while you’re on the go.
We haven’t tried Blue’s foldable Snowflake microphone ourselves, but it’s very well-liked on Amazon, averaging 4.2 stars out of 5 across 350 user reviews.
