For an authentic broadcast feeling

Blue Microphones presents the Compass, a microphone boom arm that clearly distinguishes itself from the competition. The Compass departs from the “desk lamp” style of its contemporaries and instead features an original and futuristic design that is instantly reminiscent of modern professional broadcast studios. Its matt black finish, sleek lines, and streamlined joints also make it a real eye-catcher that will turn your home or project studio into a serious working environment in terms of both looks and functionality, and it will be completely at home in professional surroundings as well.

Perfectly positioned

The Blue Microphones Compass completely lives up to its name, since the arm can be rotated by a full 360 degrees, and it is light in weight despite the 80 cm length of its vertical and horizontal arms, which means that it can also be fixed to less “substantial” tables. Nonetheless, it can support microphones that weigh as much as one kilogramme. The Compass is supplied together with a 3/8” to 5/8” adapter, which provides a wide range of different mounting options. And those looking for a suitable holder for any of the Blue Microphones Yeti models need look no further than the Blue Microphones Radius III shock mount (article no. 435646), which is available as an option and can be combined with the Compass.

Also great for beginners

The Blue Microphones Compass is an ideal choice for podcast hosts who need a convenient microphone boom arm that gives them plenty of space to read the notes on the table in front of them, but it is also suitable for anyone who records their presentations or voiceovers at a table or desk to which a table clamp can be attached. The compass gives beginners and newcomers a tool that will ease their entry into the world of voice recording, while advanced users and professionals will appreciate the flexible range of mounting options and features such as the arm’s hidden cable conduits. The Compass uses its internal springs to “suspend” the weight of the microphone, which means the latter (including the corresponding shock mount) must be neither too heavy nor too light – so users would be well advised to carefully consider their choice of microphone beforehand.

About Blue Microphones

Blue Microphones is a US-based manufacturer whose eye-catching products never fail to make an instant impression. The company’s microphones, which include the stylish Yeti and the ultra-streamlined Snowball sound converter, are always quick to win over microphone afficionados. The company behind these creative ideas is Baltic Latvian Universal Electronics (“BLUE” for short), whose product range includes handheld, large-diaphragm, and small-diaphragm microphones in both USB and XLR formats and has recently been expanded to include headphones. The Bottle, a microphone with a selection of interchangeable capsules, is a high-end classic in the Blue Microphones range. Swiss firm Logitech acquired Blue Microphones in 2018. Since then, streaming bundles that include Blue Microphones mics and Logitech webcams have also been available.

For gaming, streaming, and podcasting

Those who generally record “solo” but occasionally interview guests in their (home) studio or elsewhere can use the Blue Microphones Compass to mount their microphone in the centre of the desk and, if one is available, set their microphone to an “omnidirectional” profile. If two presenters are sharing a microphone, they can use the Compass to noiselessly pass the mic back and forth, and Blue Microphones also offers a table adapter kit for installation in recording environments in which the boom arm is intended as a permanent fixture. Those who instead prefer to use the included C-clamp should, however, note that the thickness of the tabletop must not exceed 55 mm.

I like the MIKA microphone arms. But for me, they are a little bit overpriced. The really very good alternative is this nice Blue Compass mic arm. Excellent quality, elegant modern design and the possibility of the use of your own cable are the main points that make it the best choice for every YouTuber and small studios. I can recommend it to anyone. I didn't find any weakness.

In general, the quality is very good, it remains very stable, I just feel that it needs an additional degree of freedom for it to be complemented. This degree of freedom may be in the upper part to be able to turn the microphone on its same axis. But in general the quality of the Support is very good and I am not sorry that I bought it.

Perfect companion to an SM7B.

With tension adjust at the base the arm easily spans my 800mm deep desk into the desired position for use and holds steady during even the longest sessions. Built in cable routing keeps the set-up looking clean and means you're never in a situation where a cable gets pinched or tugged.

A very elegant boom arm and is strong too. Sometimes it needs some weight to fully get down but overall great
