It's functionality as a gaming mic isn't that good, because Teamspeak/Mumble/SKype/etc. always limit/degrade sound quality transmitted.

However, it's good for recording commentaries or just recording gameplay. And Music. And podcasts.

I bought mine, a pop filter, and a boom to replace the ModMic that I actually loved. The problem I ran into with the ModMic is that after awhile the base stops sticking to my headset, and just falls off. I found myself either buying new bases or picking my mic up off the floor a few times a day.

Basically I have the gain down on my rig to the point that the Snowball doesn't pick up background noise too bad, as I can get it close with a boom. Honestly, if there were a semi-permanent option for the ModMic that looked clean, I would still use that.

Then again the Snowball isn't targeted at gaming, but other things.
