Blue Microphones

Founded in 1995, Blue began by manufacturing high-performance microphones used by professional artists like Bruce Springsteen, Sting and Coldplay. In 2005, Blue introduced the first professional USB microphone, which was adopted by many consumers for home recording, podcasting and chat. Blue has since developed consumer audio products such as the first THX-certified microphone and a portable microphone for iOS devices. Blue offers 31 distinct products for consumers and professionals.
