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.
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.
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.

Blue Microphones Yeti Pro USB Condenser Microphone
The Yeti Pro is the world's first USB microphone combining 24-bit/192 kHz digital recording resolution with analog XLR output. Featuring three custom condenser capsules and four different pattern settings, the Yeti Pro can capture digital audio with up to four times the clarity found on CDs. Plus, the Yeti Pro features a cutting-edge A-D converter chip and separate analog circuit path for use with professional studio mixers and preamps. You also get a built-in headphone amplifier for zero-latency monitoring, and direct controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, mute, and microphone gain. So whether you record at home, in a studio (or in the Himalayas!), the Yeti Pro is your ultimate sound solution.
- Combines 24-bit/192 kHz digital recording with analog XLR output.
- Advanced features with the simplicity of a plug-and-play USB microphone.
- Built-in pattern with four polar pattern settings—stereo, cardioid, omnidirectional, and bidirectional.
- Custom base includes a threaded mic stand with cable management.
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 mm 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 Pro 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 product came perfectly boxed in cardboard that displayed all of the features of the microphone. This was a nice touch because I felt comfortable with how the Blue Yeti worked before the actual hands on experience. Once inside the box it was clear that a lot of care had gone into the packaging of the product. The microphone was sitting inside Styrofoam which kept it from shaking are in the box during delivery. The USB cable was sitting inside a neatly cut out section of the Styrofoam which kept it from moving around as well, not that that should be a worry for the buyer.
Once I got hands on with the microphone immediately noticed how sturdy the base was. It has padded feet to prevent it from slipping and sliding when on a flat surface. Another nice feature of the stand is the ease of removal. There are two screw-able nobs which can be tightened to prevent the mic from tilting. They can also be taken out to separate the mic from the stand to allow the buyer to hook up the mic with a stand which I ended up doing.
On the actual microphone there is a mute button on the front as well as a volume nob if you choose to plug in head phones to the mic itself. The volume nob has a very smooth turning feel; personally I do not use it a lot due to the fact that it turns down my feedback voice as well which I find irritating. However, the way you use that specific feature is personal preference.
The mute button does its job. It has a red light the flashes upon muting and stays constant when unmuted. There’s nothing special about this feature, as I said, it does what it’s supposed to do. On some occasions I have found that I need to press it multiple times before it actually mutes.Read more ›
Now, out of all of the things that I have reviewed so far, none of them has been as prominent and as 'ancient' as the Blue Yeti. Yet again and again, it is praised as one of the best microphones for around £100.
The microphone has 4 recording modes: Stereo, Cardioid, Bidirectional, and omnidirectional microphone for recording. Stereo records audio from every direction, which is good for picking up audio from all around the room, and with that, picks up unwanted audio. Cardioid is good for for podcasts and voiceovers since it picks up audio only in front of the microphone. Bidirectional records audio from in front and behind the microphone. Suitable for interviews. Now, I'm sure you know of the Blue Yeti, but is it still worth buying as a starter microphone to YouTube for example? Simple answer, yes. The reason to this is because it is an established brand. Meaning that it will stay that way for time to come. At £99, this microphone still produces crisp audio even for today's standards.
The microphone comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack, so you can monitor your sound straight from the microphone with zero lag. At the front of the microphone there is a mute switch, and volume control for the monitors. Next to the headphone jack, you will find a mini USB port for powering the Blue yeti. The microphone is very well built, and is predominantly made of premium materials like aluminium.
However, purchasing a pop filter of any sort will help the microphone pick up less background noise, so it is highly suggested that you purchase that too with the microphone.
Now, the sound it records is fantastic for the price.Read more ›
