Blue introduced a trio of new mics here at CES 2012; Spark Digital, Mikey Digital and Tiki.

We just caught up with Blue at ShowStoppers and saw its lineup of recently announced microphones. First up is the Tiki, a portable USB microphone that has intelligent auto-muting, making Skype calls and podcasts even more crisp and clear. Though it was a non-working prototype, the Tiki's build quality was terrific — you'll probably feel comfortable tossing it right into your bag without it suffering any damage. The Mikey and Spark mics look similar to their previous-gen analog brethren, but the Spark Digital rests on a shock-absorbent stand, similar to other high-end microphones. Check out the gallery below for some closeups of Blue's new lineup.
