Product Description

Ultimate USB mic for professional recording

The Yeti is one of the most advanced and versatile multi-pattern USB microphones available anywhere. Combining three capsules and four different pattern settings, the Yeti is an ultimate tool for creating amazing recordings, directly to your computer. With exceptional sound and performance, the Yeti can capture anything with a clarity & ease unheard of in a USB microphone.

The Yeti features Blue's innovative triple capsule array, allowing for recording in stereo or your choice of three unique patterns, including cardioid, omnidirectional, and bidirectional, giving you recording capabilities usually requiring multiple microphones.

The Yeti utilizes a high quality analog-to-digital converter to send incredible audio fidelity directly into your computer, a built-in headphone amplifier for zero-latency monitoring, and simple controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute, and microphone gain located directly on the microphone. There are no drivers to install - simply plug the Yeti into your PC or Mac, load up your favorite recording software, and record something amazing.

Legendary Features

The legend of the Yeti continues with the most advanced and versatile multi-pattern USB microphone roaming the wild today. The Yeti features tools and recording capabilities usually requiring multiple microphones and devices, all with the simplicity of a plug 'n play USB microphone.

4 settings. Endless possibilities

You can quickly select from each of Yeti's four pattern settings (stereo, cardioid, omnidirectional, bidirectional) by simply rotating the pattern selector knob. The chart below shows each pattern's symbol, sound source direction, and suggested recording applications.

For a more in-depth look at each pattern, please refer to the detailed descriptions and frequency response charts further down the page.

Stereo

The Stereo mode is great for capturing a realistic stereo image. To start, point the microphone at the sound source that you want to record (the ""front"" of the microphone is the side of the microphone with the Blue Microphones Logo). Depending on the instrument and/or sound that you want to achieve, place the grill of the microphone anywhere from 2 inches to several feet in front of the sound source. By centering the sound source, you will get equal amounts of signal in both the left and right channels. If you want a little more of the signal in the right channel, move the sound source a little to the right side of the mic (as if one is behind the microphone), and if you want a little more of the signal in the left channel, move the sound source to the left (as if you are behind the microphone). Alternatively, you can record everything as centered as possible, and easily adjust the position when you're mixing the recording. If you want the sound in the right or left channel only, you should try using the cardioid, bidirectional or the omnidirectional setting, and use your software to hard-pan the sound to the left or the right.

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 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 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.

No installation required, just plugged straight in and it worked instantly (on windows 7, but works with Vista and XP also, have tried on both!).

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!?
