The en•CORE 100i has taken to the stage and the audience has spoken...


"Simply, the Blue 100i sounds killer on just about everything. It's one of those new breeds of dynamic microphones that could easily replace small-diaphragm condenser microphones on some applications, thanks to its stellar high-frequency response and articulate, detailed mid-range." Go
"The overall sound is very smooth with a solid low-frequency response… The cardioid pickup pattern provides good side and rear rejection and tonally drops off smoothly at the sides." Go
