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.
- The ultimate professional USB microphone
- Tri-capsule array - 3 condenser capsules can record almost any situation
- Multiple pattern selection - cardioid, bidirectional, omnidirectional & stereo
- Gain control, mute button, zero-latency headphone output
- Perfect for vocals, musical instruments, podcasting, voiceovers, interviews, field recordings, conference calls
- Plug 'n play - Mac, PC, and PS4 game console compatible
- Unique positionable design
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.

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:
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.
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
-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
-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.
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!
The quality of this microphone is incredible. I've done a course in music production and used a lot of varying microphones at much higher prices than this, but this easily matches them at a fraction of the cost.
I do a lot of acoustic recording with this, generally using it on the "Stereo" setting, plugging my headphones straight into the Yeti to monitor the levels.
Also found out that your computer will register the Yeti as an external speaker, so if you select the Yeti as your default speaker when it's plugged in, you can listen to anything your computer plays (videos, games, music) through the headphones that are plugged into the yeti, and still be able to hear yourself speaking too! Fantastic little feature, was genuinely impressed.
I cannot rate this microphone highly enough, but 5/5 will have to do.
Also, purchased on Friday morning, arrived on Saturday morning. How's that for service!?
