Capture Broadcast-Quality Sound With Blue Sona, Active Dynamic XLR Microphone

Blue Sona reinvents the traditional broadcast mic for today’s streamers and creators. Taking Blue Microphones’ legendary audio quality to the next level, Blue Sona combines advanced tech and a purpose-built design for professional-level game streaming, podcasting, and video content.

“Blue Sona was specifically engineered for creators,” said Soren Pedersen, senior product manager for Logitech For Creators. “From its built-in preamp to its elegant camera-ready design, Blue Sona is unlike other XLR mics on the market.”

Blue Sona features built-in ClearAmp technology, a key innovation that streamlines the XLR experience by delivering a strong +25dB gain boost — no external mic booster required. Other advanced features include a dual-diaphragm capsule and supercardioid pickup pattern, which focus on the voice while taming the environment by rejecting unwanted vibrations, key clicks, and background noise. This pro-level performance gets a creator-first design with a 290-degree swivel mount1 for complete freedom of mic placement in any desktop setup.

An XLR connection easily integrates with audio interfaces and external mixers to fine-tune sound. Sleek and versatile, Blue Sona comes in Graphite and Off-White color options and features interchangeable windscreens in Red and Graphite for a camera-ready performance.

Shape & Direct Light With Litra Beam, Premium Streaming Desktop Key Light

Litra Beam enables creators to use light to control the look and feel of their content in all-new ways. An innovative beam design with a three-way adjustable desktop stand featuring height, tilt, and rotation offers endless positioning flexibility to shape and direct light. Control content and easily create mood and tone by placing and adjusting one or more Litra Beams in your setup to achieve a range of professional lighting techniques including Front, Split, Butterfly, and Rembrandt.

“Digital content is becoming more like cinematography,” said Arnaud Perret-Gentil, senior global product lead for Logitech For Creators. “We designed Litra Beam to do more than just deliver balanced LED light but to enable desktop streamers and creators to shape and direct this light to control the mood and expression of their content.”

Pre-stream or mid-stream, streamers and creators can fine-tune their lighting with Litra Beam. Buttons on the back of the device allow for quick access to five brightness and five color temperature settings (warm candlelight to cool blue), as well as continuous, stepless adjustment through the entire range, from 2700K-6500K. For even more control and convenience, Logitech also offers the Logitech G HUB desktop app, which enables further flexibility in adjusting brightness by percentage values and color temperature in Kelvin, control over one or more Litra Beams, as well as managing lighting presets. G HUB gives creators total control over their Logitech streaming gear including Litra Glow, Blue Yeti mics, and StreamCam, as well as gaming gear from Logitech G on one desktop app.

Litra Beam solves common challenges for today’s streamers and creators seeking to level up their content. Proprietary TrueSoft technology delivers balanced, full-spectrum LED light with cinematic color accuracy for a natural, radiant look across all skin tones. Its frameless diffuser radiates wide light to eliminate harsh shadows and is certified safe for all-day streaming, passing even the strictest UL testing guidelines2. Moreover, its slim, modern design with USB and AC outlet compatibility3 goes where other lights can’t go, making it easier than ever to achieve professional lighting effects in unique spaces and setups.

What Creators Are Saying:

  • “I’ve been using a Blue mic for years, and the Blue Sona is my absolute favorite.” – DrLupo, YouTube gamer and content creator
  • “I really like the sound of this microphone… competing with some of those other super high-end dynamic microphones.”- Harris Heller, YouTube gamer and record label owner
  • “Blue Sona not only looks gorgeous in my studio, it might also be the best performing, most accurate, and most user friendly mic I’ve ever used for content creation.” – Florent Garcia, Musician and Storyteller
  • “Lighting is very important – it can distort a person’s face… Litra Beam is very flexible and allows me to adjust to the spot that will make me look best.” – XChocoBars, Twitch gaming creator
  • “Especially if you’re doing a beauty look, having soft light is what everybody aims for.” – Alexys Fleming, YouTube beauty and SFX makeup creator

I enjoy posts like this--they encourage me to learn new things about photography/video and things connected to photography/video.

We've owned about a dozen Logitech mice over the years...and some other Logitech gear as well--including a half-dozen Ultimate Ears bluetooth speakers.

Maybe I'll check out their microphones (currently use RODE).

I didn't realize that Logitech has Swiss ownership...although in the 21st century I'm not sure whether that sort of thing matters.

Here's why.

I'm 'typing' this on an AUKEY KM-G3 keyboard. It is a mechanical keyboard (some sort of blue switches) that was purchased from Amazon 2-4 years ago, I think.

It is backlit (with many color and lighting pattern choices) and has served us so well that I bought another for my wife.

I would like to buy yet another one just like it (our third) but AUKEY has moved on and now sells quite a few KM-GXX keyboards, where X is an integer.

These are Chinese-made keyboards and it is quite difficult to ascertain (for me) the exact features of the backlighting...and I like to have the option of setting all the keys to be the same color.

So I did lots and lots of searching...I don't think AUKEY has what I want...but I came upon a Logitech keyboard:


This Logitech keyboard is basically an exact copy of the AUKEY KM-G3 that I was looking for!

...furthermore: in essence I am looking to replace a Saitek backlit (red!) mechanical keyboard (PZ30AUR) with red switches--the space bar crapped out after nearly a decade-and-a-half of use.

In the process of reading about Logitech, I discovered that a few years ago Logitech bought Saitek!

So Logitech is everywhere.

off topic a little but any board with addressable LEDs and a firmware that supports custom per key lighting will do what you're after. You don't want to get into keyboards though trust me it's even worse of a rabbithole than cameras. I primarily use a 65% and separate numpad both with QMK firmware which enables more customisability (including switches as hotswap sockets) that were self builds from misc parts but many premade ones like my fullsize (ducky Shine 5, old and better options for the money or equal for less now imho) have per key lighting.

On topic on the mic note not tried this one but going from all the logitech sound stuff I've seen or used this won't match your Rode as they're primarily a gaming peripherals company who pale in comparisson to actual sound hardware companies. I find deity best bang for buck for camera mic options but use rode procaster into my comps interface for voice when I may be working/typing in the background; basically poor mans sm7b and good for voice if you need the background rejection.
