Excerpt: The Yeti isn't a dynamic USB microphone, but with all the settings and cool features you can basically turn this USB mic by Blue Microphones into something that sounds and performs pretty close. Here are some of the reasons we feel the Yeti deserves a place on our review of the best USB microphones , despite its condenser status.
Pros: Four cardioid patterns let you decide sound clarity.
Cons: The Yeti has a high price tag and still requires additional software and accessories in order to get good sound quality.
Excerpt: (1 items) Imagine a beer can with a bouffant and you have an idea of the size and shape of Blue Microphones’ $150 Yeti USB mic. The thing is enormous and made larger still by a bulky and heavy metal base (you can remove the mic from this base and attach it to a microphone stand thanks to threads on the bottom of the mic). This THX-certified, triple-capsule (recording element) condensor microphone is versatile and offers good-for-the-price—though not outstanding—sound.
Pros: Four pattern modes, Gain knob, Mute switch, Good sound, iPad compatible
Cons: Bulky, Unbalanced sound between back and front of mic, Knob construction feels cheap
