Great Mic For Youtube -Vocals, Voiceovers, Podcast
Posted by: KenPenguin from: Kingwood, Tx on
I just bought the blue yeti mic and used it today to record some vocals, and guitar. The sound that comes from the mic a lot better then the set up i had before, i researched online for weeks to find the best USB mic out there and I think i found it. I'm using this mic primarily for youtube videos and recording music. The only bad thing i have to say about the yeti is that it picks up everything, from the smallest tap or cars driving by my house. I live next the the freeway so it picks up the noise from the cars... It has a lot of features and a stable stand that would last forever. Overall i'm very happy with the mic and its performance, i would recommend this mic to anyone that wants upgrade their mic and have better audio for their videos and music.

Very good for the price
Posted by: SCHESTAK from: MA on
I actually paid around $100 when I ended up getting this, but the average price of $150 isn't bad at all either! It comes with a desk stand but also gives you the option of screwing it into a floor stand. Has 4 different settings on the back of the mic. and also features a gain knob located directly above it that you can adjust. On the front of the mic., it gives you the option to control volume levels if you decide to plug in your headphones into it (another cool thing) and also has a mute button.
All in all, Ive had this product for little over a year now with no problems at all. BLUE is a great manufacturing company for microphones and this product is amazing, especially for the price.
* The volume knob has felt loose since day one but has never fell off. It isn't enough to bother me in particular, but it could be annoying to someone that is picky over small things like that. That's why I decided to rate the 'Craftsmanship' a 4/5. *

Looking for a Great Desk Mic, look no further...
Posted by: IceBear from: on
Most people probably don't need a professional quality desk mic, but the sound quality produced by the Yeti is absolutely astonishing. The moment I logged into Teamspeak or Skype, people were able to instantly tell that I got a new microphone. Everything that I recorded test wise was crisp and clear, and the device is super easy to set up. If you're looking for something that will give you fantastic quality (Like professional grade stuff) for your streams, VOIP calls, podcasts, youtube videos, or various other recordings, without breaking the bank, then this is the mic for you

Versatile mic with great sound quality...
Posted by: willyb311 from: Quinlan, TX on
I do everything from music recording, vocal over-dubbing, podcasts, and audio narration and this mic handles all of my needs. On my mac I just plug the mic in with the supplied mini-usb cable and everything works right out of the box. The controls are simple and easy to use. The mic is very heavy and bulky, which is what I was wanting. If you are wanting something that you can hold and move around, this might not be the mic for you. The only other downside is the fact that there isn't an xlr out, but if that is a necessity you can pick up the same mic with an xlr for a few more dollars.
The bottom line, the sound is great and meets all the different needs I have for a desktop recording microphone!

Better than I expected!
Posted by: Harley4ever from: IL on
I purchased this to record an endless loop featuring the products I represent. I wanted the recording to sound near professional quality. I used this Yeti microphone (along with a pop filter) and was pleasantly surprised at how well the project turned out. It maybe more money than some of the cheap microphones out there...but it's also a lot less money than others! One of the few products that I have purchased recently that was better than expected. Buy this microphone...you won't be sorry.

Great pro mic at an affordable price
Posted by: Punctuation from: Frisco,TX on
Do you want to sound like a professional? This is the mic to have - rich sound, multiple options - cardioid , stereo, omnidirectional or bi-directional for interviews, all of which are selected by a simple switch. It has an excellent silent-mute button (to cover your cough or clearing your throat with no clicks or on-off pops).
Easily the best thing for podcasts, narrations, voice -overs and video recording. It also looks fantastic.
I bought a mic stand for my Blue Yeti and also a spider shock mount along with foam cover and pop filter. The spider shock mount will definitely remove any electrical 'hum' you might get if you put the mic on the same desk as a PC - although you can always sit the mic on some dampening material or similar but the shock mount is the right way to do it ;)
A great microphone and a bargain for the price too.

The best bang for your buck, and more.
Posted by: MysticMagicks from: Long Beach, CA on
The Blue Yeti professional USB microphone is by far one of the best microphones I've ever used that don't exceed $300 in price.
As a little bit of a background, I use this microphone solely for livestreaming (think podcast w/ video), and having a microphone that is both rich in sound quality and easy to use is essential. When people join my stream, one of the things they're primarily looking for is great sound quality, and the Blue Yeti hits up and above the expectations people come with. Although I haven't used it for recording any singing, I have also heard that it's great to use in that area as well.
The price on this product is also great. If your Best Buy offers a price match, I would highly recommend you price match it on Amazon ($50 discount). With this discount, I gladly paid the extra cost for a warranty which I haven't needed as of yet.
I've heard reviews stating that the microphone picks up unwanted sound, and coming from someone who lives in a quiet house, I can say that it does pick up the sound from my chair rolling on the hard ground, along with sounds from my (mechanical) keyboard and mouse. However, if you really want to eliminate that extra sound, a filter is definitely needed. A friend of mine just puts a wool sock over his microphone as a cheap alternative.
The only aspects of this microphone that I don't like are the size, and the knobs to tighten the mic. Both are VERY small details, and it definitely doesn't affect the way I use this microphone. The size was a LOT bigger than I expected; it's almost 12 inches upright, and blocks a portion of my monitor when in use. This is easily overcome by sitting in a better more upright posture, and tilting the microphone back a little bit, facing upwards towards my mouth. The second thing I've noticed about the microphone, is the little knobs on the side to tighten the mic from falling and tilting come loose pretty easily. I often have to re-tighten them when I adjust my microphone.
All in all, there is no better alternative for this great microphone when in use with podcasts. The sound is rich and fulfilling, picking up the bass tones and higher tones with ease. It'll pick up your whispers and your yelling, all keeping it roughly the same volume. I get comments all the time on my livestreams about my microphone, and I've already recommended it to a few friends.

Come for the product, stay for the company.
Posted by: mIRCenery from: Appleton, WI on
I had been using this mic for gaming and video work for about a month. Last night I was moving the mic (nothing major) and the usb cable just stopped working. Some basic testing later confirmed that the data cables inside the cord have gone out. So I figured I would contact the people over at Blue and see what they would do for me since the mic was less than a month old and it seemed silly to return the entire mic for a cheap usb cable. Having dealt with more than my fair share of support teams I was really surprised to wake up to an email from an actual person in my in box. No "do not reply to this email", no waiting, a real live person! After a few quick back and forth emails I now have a cable on the way and cannot recommend this product and company enough.
