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 Yeti features a proprietary tri-capsule array that works with the four pickup patterns which can be adjusted on the back of the microphone to suit. These are:
Cardioid, perfect for podcasts, game streaming, vocal performances, voice-overs and instruments. Cardioid mode records sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone, delivering rich, full-bodied sound.
Bidirectional, records from both the front and rear of the microphone—good for recording a duet or a two-person interview.
Omnidirectional, picks up sound equally from all around the mic. It’s best used in situations when you want to capture the ambience of "being there"—like recording a band's live performance, a multi-person podcast or a conference call.
Stereo, uses both the left and right channels to capture a wide, realistic sound image—ideal for recording acoustic guitar or choir.
The Yeti also features a gain wheel on the back. This adjusts the level of sound the microphone picks up.
At the front of the Yeti there is a mute button which has a red led and when pressed to mute it flashes continuously.
Below that is the headphone volume dial. This works in conjunction with the provided headphone jack on the bottom of the microphone which is used to check voice levels with zero time-latency.
The desktop stand features a full metal construction with foam on the bottom for absorption. The plastic wheels mount the microphone to the stand and can easily be tightened or loosened to adjust the angle of the microphone.
The microphone has a sample rate of 48 KHz, a bit-rate of 16-bit, a frequency response of 20Hz-20 KHz, a max SPL of 120db. The headphone amp has an impedance of 16 ohms, frequency response of 15Hz-22 KHz and a signal to noise at 100db.
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.
