Blue Snowball iCE USB Mic

Much like the Razer Kiyo Streaming Webcam, if you or someone you know is trying to break out as a streamer, or trying to become a podcaster, this is the perfect gift. In fact, you might have even spotted the Blue Snowball iCE mic in your favorite Youtuber’s videos. It adds crystal clear audio while you’re online or recording, and is super easy to set up with its simple plug and play design. It’s also fairly small and height adjustable, meaning that you can fit this bad boy just about anywhere on your desk without it being an inconvenience.

It’s lightning-fast with 3x faster optical mouse switches and has a 20,000 DPI optical sensor that reduces cursor drift and is incredibly accurate as a result! The DeathAdder v2 also offers up a slew of customization with its chroma RGB lighting and 8 programmable buttons.
