Product Description

Create unparalleled recordings and send them directly to your computer with Blue Microphone's Yeti USB Microphone. The Yeti uses Blue Microphone's proprietary tri-capsule technology to produce pristine, studio-quality recordings. It features four different pattern settings so you can record vocals, instrumental music, podcasts, or interviews in ways that would normally require multiple microphones. With simple controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute, and microphone gain, you'll be creating exceptional recordings right out of the box.

Four Different Pattern Modes for Versatile Recording

Using Blue Microphone's proprietary tri-capsule technology, the Yeti can record sounds that range from the barely audible to the deafeningly loud--all without a loss of fidelity. Depending on what kind of sound you are recording, you can choose from four distinct pattern modes:

  • Stereo mode: The stereo mode uses both the left and right channels, and is ideal for capturing a realistic, general sound image.
  • Cardioid mode: Well-suited to podcasts, sung vocals, and other voice work, cardioid mode records sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone. It delivers a rich, full-bodied sound.
  • Omnidirectional mode: Omnidirectional mode picks up sound equally from all directions. It is best used in situations when you want to capture the ambience of "being there"--like a live recording of a band's performance.
  • Bidirectional mode: Bidirectional mode records from both the front and the rear of the microphone. It is ideal for capturing the nuance of a musical instrument, or recording an interview between two people.
Control Your Recording in Real-Time

With its controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute, and microphone gain, the Yeti puts you in charge of every level of the recording process. If you are experiencing distortion or feedback while recording an especially loud source, simply adjust the microphone's sensitivity with the gain control. Or, if you want to take a break in the middle of a podcast, use the instant mute button.

The microphone comes equipped with a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack and allows you to listen to what you're recording in real-time, without latency delays. You can adjust the volume of your headphones using a control on the front of the microphone.

Innovative Design Makes Recording Easy

The Yeti features a visual design inspired by classic recording equipment--a stylish, retro aesthetic that will complement any computer system. Its metal grille and shiny, chrome-toned frame recall the look of old-timey microphones.

Because it's built on a hinge, you can adjust and pivot the microphone in relation to the sound source, improving sound quality. Once you have it at a desired angle, you can use the set screws to secure it in place. The microphone can also be folded down for easy portability, or removed completely from its base for field recordings.

Hassle-Free Setup

The Yeti requires no complicated drivers to operate; simply plug it into your computer's USB port with the included USB cable, calibrate it with your operating system, and you're ready to record.

The microphone is compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP (Home and Professional), and Mac OS X (10.4.11 or higher), and requires a minimum of 64 MB of RAM.

The Yeti USB Microphone is backed by a two-year limited warranty.

    As someone who creates video reviews it became clear I needed to do something about the audio quality as my current camcorder didn't support an external microphone and the internal mic was fairly poor.

    After a lot of searching around I settled on the Blue Yeti USB microphone due to good reviews and the interesting design that meant I didn't need to buy an additional stand.

    The Yeti hasn't disappointed, it looks fantastic and has given me the ability to add much better audio to the videos I produce. I'm only using it in one mode, cardioid, but there are 4 modes in total available:

    - Stereo
    - Cardioid
    - Omnidirectional
    - Bidirectional

    Setup was really easy, just plug it into your PC/laptop and depending on your setup you might need to select it as the microphone to use. The Yeti has a headphone socket on the bottom which has introduced me to the world of instant feedback, it's really useful being able to hear what the Yeti is picking up so you can easily tell if it's too noise, or if you're too far away etc. Note that this might also need setting up to ensure sound isn't played out of your speakers instead of your headphones.

    Aside from videos I've also used this as the microphone for Skype and Steam, with the other people commenting that I sounded much better than I had via a webcam mic. Again, setup is very easy, you just need to ensure the Yeti is selected as the microphone in whatever application you're using.

    Very pleased with the microphone so far, I think it's an excellent purchase if you're looking to improve the quality of sounds you record. I'm still getting the hang of how best to use this (e.g. how close to the mic I should be, gain level etc) but you should be able to hear the huge improvement over my camcorder microphone in the video I've done, no hissing background noise for a start!

    Looks great, sounds great, an investment I'm very pleased with and highly recommend.

    I have had a full day and a half playing around with my new toy and from what i can gather so far is that it is a
    great microphone with a multitude of functions for various uses.

    The Price may be an issue for some, but In my opinion it is worth the price, for what you get

    Pros:
    -The sound Quality is fantastic
    -Various functions - Stereo,Cardioid,Omni and bi-directional
    -Hands on adjusting of functions like Gain and volume
    -Real time microphone playback (through headset port)
    -Plug and play

    Cons:
    -The base makes it very easy for minor vibrations through the table to be picked up leading to a "humming" background noise. (easily adjusted by loosening the screws or buying a shock mount)
    -Easily picks up the most minute sounds like rubbing fabrics or even rubbing of skin (could be a pro as well depending on how you look at it)

    all in all, the Cons are VERY easily overcome with a little loosening and some gain control, for what you pay it is definitely an awesome microphone.

    I bought this last week and got it delivered early on Saturday morning, leaving me plenty of time to have a play about with it.

    It took a while to get it set up, to find out I needed to have it set up as a default recording (and playback) device.

    Once set up however, and especially once teamed up with a pop filter, the sound is brilliant. Rich, deep and clear, it is hands down the best mic I've ever heard. Professional studio quality, easily.

    Best to use it with a low gain, speak quite close (about 2-3 inches away) and use a pop filter. This eliminates background noise, adds bass to your vocal and keeps the sound rich and true.

    If you turn the gain right up, this beauty will pick up everything, and I do mean everything! I could hear my wife outside on her mobile phone, despite being unable to hear her without the mic on.

    Brilliant piece of kit, and just glad I got mine from Amazon themselves before it sold out and supply went to a third party, as I paid two-thirds of the current "Fulfilled by Amazon" price!

    2015 Update: Had this now for over three years, and it's still as good as the day I bought it. A superb buy, and great value for money!

    I tried and tried to make things work with this mic but had to return it, due to a high pitch buzz that features in all recordings. I changed the gain, created a padded booth for it, tried varying length leads, bought a usb hub to run it through but no joy. Ultimately it is too sensitive for the home user, and the majority of people saying it's great probably don't have the ear to notice the problem sound. If like me you need it for singing and / or voiceover work, even running it through something like Audacity's Noise Removal tool won't always remove all of the buzz.

    Instead I bought a RODE NT USB which has arrived today and straight out of the box is AMAZING! Didn't even need to run any effects or polish the sound for singing or voice recording. Check it out.

    The microphone worked straight out of the box without the need to install any software. Indeed I was able to connect it to my IPad using the camera connection kit. The sound quality was distinctly superior to anything else I have ever used to record to a computer. In fact the sound quality was really impressive for voice and acoustic guitar. The microphone is well built and easy to use. I thought it represented very good value for money after I had set it up and tested it. Now after a few weeks of using it I am even more impressed.
