If you plan on using the included stand, Blue advise that the microphone is positioned upright for optimal sound pickup, however, if needed the mic can be re-positioned using the adjustments at the side.
Taking the mic off the stand grants a closer look at it. The first thing you’ll note is that the design has been overhauled and fits the overall style very nice.
At the rear, there is a Blue logo badge. You can also see that Blue have cut out a small section at the bottom which is there for cable management purposes.
Underneath the stand, there is a ring of foam that acts to help reduce vibration noise pickup.
