The Blue Microphones Omni Mouse is an omni only version of the regular Mouse condenser microphone. I've used both of these mics, but mostly this version. The mic, obviously, has an omnidirectional polar pick up pattern and will gather frequencies in the range from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. The mic also has a built in mic stand adapter on it's underside.
The Blue Microphones Omni Mouse is up there as one of the best room microphones I've ever used. It's perfect for this applications because it is indeed omnidirectional and will pick up sound from all angles. This helps to capture all sorts of reflections and really gives you a nice a roomy sound, even when you're using it in a small room. One of the producers that I work with frequently has a set of these and he uses them exclusively as room mics and I really can't say that I blame him based on the results. I honestly haven't used the microphone for much more than this. However, I have used the regular Blue Mouse, which I believe is the same exact microphone in a cardioid pick up pattern, and that's a great mic for vocals and other things, so it's possible that this is just as good for similar applications. However, due to it's omnidirectional pick up pattern, which isn't adjustable, it's not surprising that you'll see this version of the mic mostly used for room mics and other applications where you want sound from all sides. This does limit it's capabilities a bit, so if you're looking for an all purpose condenser, it's probably a safer bet to go with the the cardioid version of the Mouse. Having said that, these are excellent mics for what they are and should definitely be checked out if you're looking for a pair of stationary rooms mics!
