Press Release

Blue, a division of Logitech, introduces the Ember premium cardioid XLR condenser microphone for professional audio recording. The Blue Ember is designed for pristine audio recording of vocals and instruments thus making it ideal for streaming, YouTube production, and more. The Blue Ember is the perfect audio recording microphone for applications like SoundCloud and on-camera applications. The Ember’s tight pickup pattern helps reduce room and background noise.

The Blue Ember XLR features a proprietary hand-tuned custom condenser capsule to deliver superbly clear, open, and detailed performance for audio recording or live streaming. A tight cardioid pickup pattern focuses on the sound source directionally in front of the mic and minimizes room noise for a clean, up-front sound with excellent isolation. The Blue Ember’s streamlined form factor and compact side-address design is ideal for placement in tight spaces or limited on-screen real estate.

The Blue Ember XLR microphone also features a custom-designed phantom power circuit and precise cardioid polar pattern that guarantees consistent frequency response with minimal noise to record smooth and rich vocal sound. The Blue Ember comes bundled with a standard microphone stand and is compatible with Blue’s S3 Shock suspension mount and compass boom arm accessories.
