5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mic, 12 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone - Silver Edition (Electronics)
I'll just echo the other reviews here and note that this is an excellent mic. Just plug it in and it's recognised as an audio input source automatically in Mac OS X Snow Leopard, and indeed as an audio output source if you want to plug headphones into it (to monitor with zero delay). It picks up sound with stunning clarity (make sure you don't have the washing machine on elsewhere in the house, because you'll hear it here), and it certainly looks the part.

It is, of course, a huge beast of a thing (and solid too; I daresay you could knock out a burglar with it then record a statement for the police), but the size brings it up to the right level for recording when you're sitting at your desk. It also feels very radio-DJ, in a good way. Is it worth a hundred quid? No idea, but you clearly get what you pay for.
