I’ve been eyeballing a real microphone for a while now and I couldn’t decide between this and the Blue Snowball. Ultimately, I went with the Blue Yeti Whiteout edition.If you plan on recording podcasts where the mic doesn’t move and you’re not banging on the table, typing, or gaming, the mic by itself is great.But if plan on streaming and/or recording gameplay, EVERYTHING will be heard, which is VERY annoying. You won’t be happy with results, I promise you. After a little research, I purchased the Blue Compass branded shock mount, foam windscreen, and boom arm, then everything was 100% perfect. The difference is extremely noticeable with the accessories.In the end, I’m extremely happy with mic. It beats using my headset mic (although it’s pretty good) and I use just about every day. But if you can’t afford the minimum accessories, I suggest to wait until you can, so you won’t feel disappointed.
Now this has to be the best mic for streaming radio stations. The best I have run into. The one feature we love is the headphone jack built into the mic. If you ever tried to stream through a Windows pc you will notice a delay between your live voice and what goes through the mic. Most radio dj’s use headphones when going live. If you have .5 to 1 second delay this can really mess you up. There is no delay when you plug your headphones directly into the mic. The Blue mic seems to be built very well and the sound quality also seems very good. So far so good. The Blue Yeti is Hot Hitz Radio’s main mic now!!
Bought this on an Amazon Daily Deal on November 25th (received November 29th). I have purchased three of these in the last 3 years. 2 of them about 2 years ago (for my oldest son and for my middle son). Their mics both still work perfectly. My youngest really wanted one – so I bought him one this last Christmas. He just came to me tonight and said the mic quit working properly 4 days ago. Now when he tries to record – the playback is a very high pitched loud whining that is louder than his voice so the whining drowns out his voice. Mind you – he is very computer savvy for a 15 year old. He tried everything to try to get it to work correctly without the whining – but could not. He brought it to me and showed me – so I heard it for myself. It is LOUD.I am 9 days over my return period but I tried it anyway. Cudos to Amazon – they didn’t bat a lash. They are sending a replacement – should have it by next Wednesday, and we will be returning this unit to them on Monday. I didn’t want to leave a totally awful rating as I understand that things do happen. I will keep you posted and update the stars when it is confirmed that the replacement works as it should with no repeat issues.FYI – when it worked – my Son absolutely loved it. He says it was really high quality audio and he is looking forward to the replacement. Hopefully this was just a fluke…Update 6-5-17 moving 3 stars back up to 5. The replacement works perfectly. Not a single issue in the last 6 plus months. Thank you!
Gaming, Voice-Recording, Work Meetings. This is where I use my Blue Yeti USB Mic.Everywhere people are always asking me “What kind of mic do you have, your voice is so clear”. And I’m like “Blue Yeti”. You can hear the envy in their voices as they say “Oh, that’s cool. So you don’t have a headset”. As I hear this response, over and over, I stare blankly into my monitor and wonder what has happened to society. Do people not know that one can own more than 1 microphone, does one not know that you can select in your settings which microphone to use. Am I the only person in the world who wears a headset and talks through a Blue Yeti… Of course not, I’ve seen people do this on YouTube for years…. So I respond back with “Yeah, I use a headset but I disable the microphone in it and use the Blue Yeti” only to hear the inevitable response of “Oh, why do you have a separate mic” …. I start pondering life at this point. I want to say “Ummm because I wanted high quality which you commented on to start this conversation in the first place. I mean, didn’t you go “What mic are you using” because you were hearing me in crystal clear hd glory?” but instead I respond with “Because the sound quality is better on the stand-a-lone mic” . Then I always get the same response “Yeah, but I wouldn’t like having to speak into the microphone while I’m gaming. Plus, $99 for a microphone is pretty expensive” says the dude wearing a $300 headset that has inferior mic quality AND inferior sound quality to my $200 complete setup.Ughhh. You don’t have to speak directly into the mic. There are adjustments that can change where the direction of the sound is recorded from. You can change the Gain on the mic itself, which is huge because some apps amplify sounds which is annoying without having the ability to quickly adjust your microphone.If you are looking for a great USB microphone this is my favorite one. Feels solid, sounds great, and has been working for quite a while now.

I bought this so that I would be able to record clear audio without the static noise you would hear on most gaming headset/microphones.It’s easy to set up, merely connect the included cable into both the microphone and usb port on your PC. The instructions are very clear and briefly describes the different modes the microphone has. What I really like about it is that it also tells you what the different modes are recommended for. the “omni-directional” mode is recommended for instrumental recording, or group singing, etc etc. It is very friendly towards beginners, especially me since this is my first dedicated microphone.Since you now have a dedicated microphone, why need your gaming headset right? The microphone even has a headphone jack so you can throw away that $100 headset and use your apple earbuds or whatever 3.5mm earphone you use. On the front of the microphone there is a dedicated volume knob and a mute button that flashes red, indicating that it is muted. On the back there is the knob for switching between the different modes the microphone can be as well as a knob to turn up or down how loud the microphone projects the sound it records. “Gains” is what the knob is labeled.Microphone itself is very well made. Heavy steel (I think its steel?) as a base and a lighter, but still metal body. There are knobs for you to adjust the angle of the microphone, or even unscrew the base so that you can mount on an elevated mount.The quality of the microphone is superb. It pretty much picks up everything. From mechanical keyboard clicks to you swallowing just a bit loudly. Very very excellent.So in all, was the 130ish dollars I spent on the product worth it? Yes. Considering how well the microphone sounds and the fact that I will be using this when I stream on twitch and record commentary for youtube videos, I feel like this is a very good investment this should probably last me for a couple of years.

I really like how easy it is to just plug the accompanying cable into the bottom of the mic and into a USB port on my computer. Then I go into the System settings for sound and I can choose to listen through the Blue Yeti itself with earbuds or headphones or use the laptop speakers whenever I wish. It is very simple.The recording sound is good. I got it especially to be able to record when I sing and play the guitar. The laptop mic didn’t do a good job with the sound of my guitar but the Yeti picks it up very well.I use it when I have meetings with people on Zoom or Skype and it does very well. It is a very good mic and fairly priced.

I originally bought one of these in Teal as a gift for my husband. I also wanted to test these out to see how they would do. He’s a guitarist and wanted it to record his playing. We were both pretty impressed with the sound quality and all the options. We also really liked all the cute art of the yetis. I liked that there were many colors to choose from. That’s always a great thing. So for Black Friday I got myself the white one. I’m very pleased but noticed the packaging was a bit different. Mostly that his came with a much nicer instruction booklet. It had a nice cover of the mic on the front and pictures and art of the yetis inside. I don’t know if I got a newer or an older model but mine is just a plain boring white “registration” book with minimal info and instructions. Not that I need it to figure out how to use it but I like getting fun booklets not just a smaller boring one. The other difference and this is minor is my cable is more of a smooth matte color. I like it better. It feels nice. The one that came with the teal was a typical glossy cable. Maybe they are supposed to match the mics but I thought that was interesting they looked and felt different. Mine matches my turquoise and white room nicely. Over all we’re both rather pleased with these. I have an unboxing of the teal one up on my youtube channel called Scary Fear.*********************************************************************************************************I rely on reviews when I make purchases so I put a lot of time into reviewing everything I buy on Amazon.

Best USB Microphone ever! OK, sounds repetitive. But it is true. While podcasting would be fun, one overlooked use is for dictation. I use Dragon on my Mac. I have spent over $1,000 fruitlessly on microphones from Samson, Phillips SpeechMike, Plantronics, and many others. NONE of them are consistent. I have decided the microphone quality is generally quite poor, as is noise rejection. They are generally poorly directional, having immense shifts in frequency response depending how off axis you are. This radically affects recognition with even a few degrees off axis speech.The Yeti, on the other hand, is a very high fidelity microphone, it has tunable directionality, and maintains balance when even significantly off axis. I set it on my desk and can dictate with the best fidelity and accuracy I have ever experienced with Dragon. Dragon now is actually useful. And…it looks way cool on my desk!

Instead of writing a review, I am just making a short video on the mic so you can hear the quality.
Firstly, I love that this came in white because it matched my office. I bought the pink cover separately. I’ve been using gaming headsets for years but have always thought about getting an external mic since I know they just sound better.I finally bought this one and the difference was huge! I sound crystal clear and professional. Minimal background noise as long as I set the sensitivity to low. I don’t even have to be super close to the mic and it picks up my voice on the lowest sensitivity setting.I did run into an issue where I would hear a buzzing noise during playback but I realized when I plug the USB around other cords, it picks up the internal sound of the other cords. So I plugged this in away from the other cords and the buzzing noise went away. This issue is likely my setup and not the mic itself, but if this is happening to you, then that’s probably why.Overall, I’m so in love with this mic that I can’t stop recording myself and talking to people. It sparks my creativity!
