It is, yes. An inexpensive one. If it's just sitting on your desk (or on the little stand they ship with) that's going to be a problem. Grab a cheap mic arm for $20 off Amazon... it'll really help, just getting it off the desk and closer to your face-holes. It MAY still have some transmission noise, you can try getting a shockmount for the Snowball (some companies make them) but it'll be a bit more than twenty bucks (even if they're mostly just a cheap cage-framework and some rubber bands).Weird... I use a Blue Snowball mic. Is that a condenser? I've never really had issues with it before OBS though. I've had it for about a year and just started OBS.
