Blue Microphones Snowflake makes chat cool

USB-condensing microphone is ideal for podcasters

For those who like to chat, being able to orate into a speaker sitting on front of you, rather than muttering into your beard, is a boon. The Snowflake condensing microphone sits unobtrusively on your desk while you share your thoughts and record them for posterity. 

The Blue Microphones Snowflake connects to a PC or laptop via USB, so you can use it to dictate copy or an email or to record a message that is then sent by email - perhaps a Christmas greeting for those you won't be able to spend time with in person. The £35 gadget is also ideal for conducting VoIP chats with friends on a day to day basis, of course. 

Speaking into the stylish Blue Microphones Snowflake is also a lot more comfortable than having to clip on a Bluetooth headset and speak into a corded microphone. The USB condensing microphone can also be used for recording podcasts and sending personalised pre-recorded messages. 

It costs £35 from Amazon.co.uk
