I recently saw that you could use a promo code for the Blue Snowball Ice for $35 on Frys, and I thought that was a good deal, but I heard its very quiet. So I was wondering, should I go with the Ice or should I get the NW-700 and a Phantom Power Supply for $50 Total. Here are the link:

the neewer isn't going to have better out-of-the-box quality than the snowball and I know someone with the snowball and it doesn't seem to be to quiet. now if you were going to use the neewer with a audio interface or a sound card then that might be as good out of the box but for simplicity sake, I would get the snowball. if you had an audio interface you would need to get a better mic than both of these to get full use out of your interface. I have the blue Yeti and it is amazing! and all I hear about the snowball is good. although I do hear good about the neewer products as well.

The neewer isn't going to have as good of an out of the box quality as the snowball. If you don't want to add sound compressions on to your audio, then I would recommend the snowball. If you are willing to spend more, (about 250 US dollars) you can get an actual professional grade microphone WITH an audio mixer. Please reply to me for more help! :)

If you just want to pick between the two, I would go for a snowball. It is much simpler than the Newer, but if you have a sound card or mixer then Neweer would be better for you.
