Capture the Heart of What's in Your Head...
With BLUE Microphones


BLUE microphones are more than just a recording tool... they are an investment in value, quality, and expression. You will display them for their artistic beauty, covet and protect them for their investment value, and treasure them for conveying the heart and soul of any musical recording.

BLUE stands for Baltic Latvian Universal Electronics — and for the ultimate in quality! Our work speaks for itself. You'll find BLUE microphones are beyond compare as a valuable investment and unsurpassed as a musical production tool. BLUE has its own facility located in Latvia (one of the Baltic states, located outside Russia). At BLUE, we are not interested in cost-effective mass production, which could jeopardize the design quality of our tube and solid state microphones and related products. We design and manufacture all capsules — the heart of the microphone — as well as precision parts, from the smallest screw to the large body shells used for our Bottle microphones. We've researched the needs of engineers and musicians alike, to create an exceptional collection of microphones. What makes BLUE microphones so unique, and so valuable? Our unique formula. The mylar film of our BLUE hand-built capsules are sputtered with a special, unique-to-BLUE formula of 24-carat gold of absolute pure (99.99%) quality and aluminum. This special film is tensioned to our own hand-built brass backplates, designed and manufactured in our Riga factory. Our formula allows us to achieve the fastest transient response without the sacrifice of low-end frequencies. BLUE considers the capsule to be the heart of the microphone. This most important element is manufactured solely by us and not sourced from another company. This process is crucial to achieving the unique sound quality that is the trademark of a BLUE microphone.

BLUE builds and tunes each capsule by hand. The finished capsules are measured in our anechoic chamber for the optimum performance. Each microphone capsule is mounted with our molded, injected rubber stem, to isolate unwanted rumble.

No integrated circuits. Our solid state and tube microphone amplifiers are based on a Class A, fully discrete circuit, employing a custom microphone transformer built and wound to BLUE specifications. This enables our hand-built microphone capsules to be fully realized in their performance. When our mics are used with BLUE's high-definition mic cables, the sound has extreme presence... as if someone is singing right next to your ear. Strict electronic and construction tolerances. Insured by the use of high-end quality components, these tolerances guarantee unsurpassed reliability and low noise. All our microphones handle loud sound pressure levels (SPL) and still capture the crucial dynamics that make recordings stand out. Our extensive research. We studied the frequency curves from scores of vintage, tube, and solid state microphones, from which we determined the most desirable sound qualities. The sonic design of our microphones was created by what we term TPO, or The Popular Opinion... the consensus of expert engineers and discriminating musicians on the type of sound that is needed in the recording process today.
