From the manufacturer
Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone
Create unparalleled recordings directly in 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
The stereo mode uses both the left and right channels, and is ideal for capturing a realistic, general sound image.
Well-suited for podcasts, vocals, or game streaming, cardioid mode records sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone. It delivers a rich, full-bodied sound.
Omnidirectional mode picks up sound equally from all directions. It’s 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 records from both the front and the rear of the microphone. It’s 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 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.

-The provided mount is solid and will not tip over.
-The gain range is massive and the different pickup modes allow for great versatility.
-A cheap pop filter designed to fit around a round portion of a Microphone will happily clamp onto the side of the sturdy Blue Yeti frame.
-Having a mute button is very handy when you need to mute the microphone (E.g. Phonecall).
-This is not an easy microphone to setup, the instructions that come with it aren't great and out of the box it will be too sensitive and pick up absolutely every little noise in the room. (Tip, set it to Cardioid mode and turn the gain (both on the Mic itself and the one on the sound page on your PC) right down).
-This is not a small microphone. At all. Including the stand, it's about 30cm tall and 12cm wide.
-Don't attempt to angle the microphone. It is designed to be used upright and will pick up lots of background noise if you move it (like the quiet hum of your PC, this is not an issue when it is upright).
UPDATE: The microphone has suddenly died (none of the internet's help fixed it, it simply won't record anything except it's own interference, tried assorted different cables, powered USB hub, uninstalling, even trying another computer!) from light use (about 8 hours a week use spread over 3-4 days) after less than six full months. This is extremely disappointing for the price and I'm back on my old cheap microphone I originally bought the Yeti to replace.
It is virtually impossible to find a piece of software that will record and manipulate the Surround Sound Data for a reasonable amount of money: many of the vendors offer free trials that do not work properly, and then try to sell you Studio Programs that cost hundreds. I strongly recommend a program called "Audacity"in its various forms as a starting point, simply because it actually works! Unless of course you already Sony Sound Forge and know how to smooth your recordings from stereo mikes into Dolby Surround Sound etc.
P.S. If you have a computer with Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 be prepared for a rocky road with your USB microphone acquisition data drivers. I had to re-install mine several times before I found the correct one (and do a little bit of fiddling around with the system) there is lots of help for this on the interweb. The problem was not the mike, or the drivers in the end - it was yes, you have guessed it with Microsoft Windows.
Make sure that you set ALL of the volume controls to about 10% when you start fiddling about or the Windows will blow everything. There may be some system configuration changes to make.
The sound quality and ease of use is incredible, plug in and it's good to go. Very very happy with the Microphone and the deal in general. I've seen this blackout bundle on other sites for roughly 160 so spending £99.99 was a no brainer. I just need to get a pop filter and a boom arm.
Easy to adjust and change settings on the mic itself and pretty much needs nothing more, if it had it's own software included like a very basic Noise gate/Noise suppression system that'd be pretty cool but I just do all of that through OBS anyway.
I would strongly recommend buying a pop filter if you don't have one, particularly if you're going to be close to the mic for any length of time. Whilst the quality of the mic is good, it does tend to pick up more breathy sounds or lip pops if you're not careful.
Overall, a solid mic for less than £100 - there are many out there that are far better, this is not a studio quality piece of kit, but as a starter it will serve you well until you work out if you want to make that kind of investment.
