Premium Quality Sound and Recording
YETI FOR ANY APPLICATION
From professional podcasting to music recording, Twitch Streaming, and even YouTube videos, Yeti carries your projects to studio-quality heights.
TOTAL RECORDING CONTROL WITH YETI
Yeti features studio controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute and microphone gain—putting you in charge of every level of the recording process. If you’re experiencing distortion or feedback while recording an especially loud source—like the deafening sound of an avalanche—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.
INNOVATIVE DESIGN MAKES RECORDING EASY
Yeti doesn’t mind getting pushed around—it lets you adjust and pivot the microphone in relation to the sound source, which optimizes your sound quality. Once you’ve achieved the desired angle, simply hand-tighten the set knobs to secure it in place. Yeti is a side-address condenser microphone, so you can capture the best sound by going face-to-face with it. The microphone can also be folded down for easy portability, or removed completely from its base for mounting directly on a mic stand or Radius II shockmount.
Easy Setup and Control
Simply plug Yeti into your computer's USB port with the included USB cable, calibrate it with your operating system, and you're ready to record—rain, shine or snow. Yeti offers driver-free operation, while the Yeti Pro requires easy-to-install drivers, available from Blue.
Accessorize Your Studio
Transform your desktop into a broadcast studio with Compass broadcast boom arm, Radius III shockmount and Yeti, the world’s #1 USB microphone. With professional features, studio sound quality and sophisticated on-camera looks, you have everything you need for professional podcasting, game streaming and voice over work.
START RECORDING QUICKLY
Who needs a learning curve? Yeti was designed with a convenient, no-hassle workflow in mind. Set up in seconds with the included desktop microphone stand or connect directly to a mic stand. Adjust microphone gain, pick up pattern, headphone volume, or mute/unmute with easy-to-reach controls. And record in comfort with Yeti’s side-address operation—just speak, sing or play into the Yeti on the same side as the Blue logo to capture pro sound.

Update: Was able to post this video here.
I wanted a mic that would help me increasing the quality of my ASMR videos (please Google what that is) that generally require high quality audio. I was considering Blue Yeti or Zoom H4N and decided on Yeti, mainly because of the price point.
1) Great (!) sound quality
2) Four simple options, really hard to mess up
3) Simple set up, just plug the microphone in the USB port on your computer, and select the mic as a default in the settings (the mic also comes with a simple instruction booklet).
4) No SD card required, this mic records straight into your computer. I use the default sound recorder that comes with Windows, but there are other options available if you want to play with the sound.
1) Not portable. Since it is a USB microphone, you are tied to your computer.
2) Bulky and heavy. This is a tabletop mic.
3) The dial to switch among the modes is really tough to turn
Overall, I really like it! I think portability is the primary issue for me, but I knew what I was purchasing.
Gotta dock a star for Blue's customer service. It took a full week before they replied back to me with a return authorization and they won't even send me a mailing label. I have to eat the shipping cost! I also have to dock another star because they "inadvertently" let me know this was a B-Stock when I registered the serial no. with them! Blue Microphones is selling B-Stock as if they were brand new on their Amazon store! Something was wrong with this microphone to begin with. No wonder it died in less than 7 months with hardly any use at all.
I'm shipping it back at my expense and hope they will honor the warranty. But from my recent experiences with Blue microphones I can't recommend them. Wouldn't buy from Blue again.
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!
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.
