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.
Summary: The Yeti is one of the richest sounding, sonically flexible USB microphones money can buy, but its large size makes it inconvenient for portable applications.
Pros: Whether you're recording a podcast, an interview, or a concert, the Yeti's THX-certified sound quality, integrated gain control, and four recording modes (including stereo) make it a top choice for a USB microphone.
Cons: If you're looking for something subtle and portable, the Yeti is not for you. Plus, the wobbly plastic knobs make us wary about durability.
