Built to serve podcasters, streamers, YouTube content creators, and voice-over artists aspiring to reach the pro level, the Blue Blackout Spark SL condenser microphone utilizes a custom large-diaphragm capsule and Class-A JFET electronics to deliver a rich sound with the kind of detail needed to be competitive in the online world of audio. Further elevating its professional nature is the vibration-absorbing shock mount and selectable onboard settings. The Blackout Spark SL XLR is not only well suited for speech capture, but also for singing and rap vocals.
Use the 100 Hz low-cut filter to attenuate bass buildup and increase intelligibility, which is especially important when the mic is close to the mouth. For creators who tend to shout or exclaim loudly, the -20 dB pad is perfect for keeping the sound clear and free of distortion. The mic's cardioid polar pattern rejects a good deal of sound behind the mic, allowing it to pick up less room ambience and background noise than many other polar responses. The Blackout Spark SL can be connected to any XLR mic input that is capable of sending 48V phantom power.

At the heart of Blackout Spark SL's sound is Blue's custom JFET design, which ensures the capsule's backplate is evenly charged and delivering consistent, detailed, and transparent sound at all times.
