5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product
By Michael Reilly on 24 December 2020
Great product. Use it every day for work conference calls and for recording various vox pops and other sounds.

High quality sound, very reliable, looks great and the Blue boom arm is highly secure and reliable.

Definitely recommend and would buy again.

Only suggestion is to make the mute button more sensitive, sometimes it takes a couple of pushes to engage / disengage. Also make the flashing / persistent red light less bright / intrusive - at night it can be a bit ‘in your face’ and a distraction from work. These are small gripes however, that could be improved in future models - overall very happy with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mikrofon
Reviewed in Germany on 22 January 2019
Wer ein Mikrofon sucht, dass preislich unter 150€ liegt, wird mit dem Blue Yeti wsl sehr zufrieden sein. Für Teamspeak und auch für nicht professionelle akustische Sachen wie Gitarre oder Gesang taugt das Yeti wirklich. (Hobby mäßig)
Einziges Manko meiner Meinung nach sind die Schrauben mit denen das Mikro am Fuß befestigt ist. Diese werden von Zeit zu Zeit locker und man muss sie nachdrehen.

Falls Gesang oder Instrumente damit aufgenommen werden würde ich auch einen Popschutz empfehlen inclusive Mikroarm, da man sonst gern mal Tischgeräusche oder ähnliches mit aufnimmt.

Zum Mikro selbst. Es verfügt über 4Modi', welche ich in den Anhang posten werde :) Ich verwende nur den Cardioid Modus zum Singen und Gamen (TS) - da bin ich sehr zufrieden mit. Die anderen Modi habe ich nicht wirklich getestet.
Weiters gibt es ein Poti mit dem sich der Gain verstellen lässt und das ganze ist auf höhster Stufe dann wirklich sehr empfindlich. Habe das Mikro neben meinem Monitor alos ca 1m weg von meinem Mund und da reichts wenn der Gains ganz niedrig eingestellt ist. Im Teamspeak perfekte Qualität und bei Gesangaufnahmen stelle ich das Mikro etwa 50cm von mir weg.

Für den Hobbygebrauch wirklich zu empfehlen. Wer was professionelles braucht sollte lieber nach XLR Mikros mit passender Peripherie Ausschau halten, jedoch bewegt man sich dann in einer anderen Preisklasse.
Für unter 150€ könnte ich nur noch das USB Mikro von Rode empfehlen. Dieses gefiel mir im Direktvergleich für Sprache besser für Instrumentaufnahmen schlechter. (Rode klarer aber gesamte Klangfarbe etwas zu hoch und daher hört sich für mich das Yeti gesamt besser an - Vorallem bei niederfrequenten Tönen)

Falls die Rezession für dich nützlich war, kannst du gerne ein "Nützlich" dalassen :-D

5.0 out of 5 stars Go to microphone for starting streaming/recording...
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 April 2019
This is pretty much the go to mic when it comes to starting out in streaming or recording videos for Youtube/Twitch etc. The fact that this is USB and just plugs and plays appealed due to its high quality recording capability and ease of use. The mic itself is well built and made of metal so, unsurprisingly, heavy (bear this in mind if you decide to mount this on an boom stand or arm). The microphone has 4 settings;

CARDIOID MODE - This mode records sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone.
STEREO MODE - Uses both the left and right channels to capture more realistic sound range.
OMNIDIRECTIONAL MODE - Picks up sound equally from all around the mic (best for live recordings around a table etc)
BIDIRECTIONAL - Records from both the front and rear of the microphone—good for recording a duet or a two-person interview.

I use this mic attached to a AKORD Professional Adjustable Microphone Fold and pop filter.

This does offer a high quality sound recording but if you wanted to take things to the next level you'd probably want invest in a mic with an XLR connection and mixer combo. However if you want something easy to setup/use with a high level of recording quality then Blue Yeti is highly recommended. As a side note I've been using this for 3 years now and its still going strong!

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst customer service
Reviewed in Canada on 30 September 2019
This is the worst mic I have ever purchased. Not because of the sound quality but because of the customer service. I got the mic end of July and by the end of September, it stopped working suddenly. It is not a cheap mic and I expected the customer service to help. I registered the product on their website and created a ticket and I received no response for 2 weeks now. I keep asking for updates and I get nothing. The sound quality was great but for 2 months only. Do not buy something that does not have good customer service. You will never know what will happen.
** Update
After 9 days of creating a ticket, I got a response to add the product details and my shipping address. I added the requied information the same day and 5 days now no response again. I even created another ticket and it is still open for 7 days now.
