The Blue Spark is a versatile, high-quality microphone that is available in an XLR version and a USB/iOS version. While both versions are great microphones, they have one issue: They don’t come with a traditional shock mount.
What’s a shock mount?
A shock mount holds your microphone and protects it from unwanted vibrations like your foot accidentally kicking the table leg or your hand hitting the microphone stand. If you’re not using a shock mount, these types of “shocks” typically result in a loud low rumbling sound. Obviously, that’s not something you want in your recording.
