Blue Compass, a Premium Microphone Boom Arm for the Desktop
Versatile boom arm is ideal for a wide range of broadcast applications, including game streaming, podcasting, voice-over, and more
(Westlake Village, CA –March 6, 2018) Blue, a 20-year leading innovator in audio technology and creators of the world’s #1 USB microphones, today introduced Compass, a premium enclosed-style desktop boom arm that is compatible with most mics, including Blue’s Yeti and full range of USB mics, in addition to professional studio mics. Featuring a sleek and quiet design plus built-in cable management, Compass is the perfect desktop boom solution for a wide range of broadcast applications, including game streaming, podcasting, voice-over, internet radio and more.
“Podcasters, streamers and audio professionals have been asking us for a boom arm solution that works with Yeti and other pro mics, and we’re excited to introduce Compass,” said Tommy Edwards, Director of Product Management at Blue Microphones. “Compass is the ultimate boom solution for applications where you want the mic off the desktop or positioned for on-camera broadcasting. We’ve designed it to be nimble and sleek so creators can adjust their mic into the perfect position without any of the squeaking of scissor boom arms. It’s also designed to securely hold the weight of heavier mics like Yeti or lighter weight broadcast mics. Whether you adjust the boom to disappear off camera or feature it front and center, Compass fits perfectly into any game streaming or podcasting setup and lets you position your mic where you want it.”
Compass features a studio-grade, enclosed design with internal springs for professional performance in any desktop recording or broadcasting scenario. Sleek, hidden-channel cable management keeps desks and recording spaces clear, while hand-tightening friction-hinges enable easy adjustment without tools. Effortless and quiet, Compass rotates a full 360 degrees and stays in place after being adjusted. Finally, a robust C-clamp creates a solid connection with the desktop.
Compass is also featured in the new Blue Yeticaster bundle, which includes Yeti, the new Radius III shockmount, and Compass, for a complete, professional broadcast setup out of the box.
Compass (MSRP $99.99) is available now in the US at Amazon, Focus Camera, B&H, Dell, Micro Center, Fry’s, Musician’s Friend, Sweetwater, Pitbull Audio, EStudioStar, JRR Shop, Gigasonic, PSSL, Ametron and more.
