The Blue Microphones Tiki is a portable USB microphone… which might be hard to tell from the image above. It looks more like some sort of fancy whistle! Anyway, the Tiki appears to be quite a smart advice, mimicking the intelligence of human hearing. One point in the description of this microphone particularly appealed to me:
…it can bring your voice to the forefront and minimizes competing background noise like typing.
That’s an excellent idea. When I am on Skype calls for work, I frequently hear people typing quite loudly on the other end. I wonder how loud my own typing must be.
There are only a few reviews on site, but they are positive. For example, B from Edmonton states:
AMAZING LITTLE THING!
Short and sweet, eh?
Well, if you just want a basic and budget-friendly microphone for some basic chatting or sound recording, then this could be ideal.
