Blue's best product, and a good value.

Summary: I've spent quite a bit on Blue misfires, especially after Cisco Systems pulled the plug on the Flip video camera that Blue had geared up for, then unloaded on unsuspecting customers as 'potentially" useful for superior audio recordings made with an iPod Touch..
Summary: I have not been able to fix the problem of this Blue Yeti Pro mic constantly dropping and reconnecting in Garage Band. I know many people have this same problem and try various fixes. Some work some don't. Mic works fine in Audacity though.
Avoid this microphone. The USB mini-B connector used is prone to problems.

Summary: I've had my brand new Blue Yeti for less than a week. I really wanted to like this microphone, and bought it based on the excellent reviews for sound quality, etc. However, you are gambling if you buy this microphone.
Summary: PROS: sounds great you can plug in a seperate headset to hear yourself, volume knob, (mic input level, 'gain') mountable on normal mic stands looks awesome plug and go can hear from a specific direction. CONS its huge. VERY huge hard to record yourself talk, IF you are trying to game with this.
Summary: I love this mic, I bought this because I want and need to record songs, I own a mac and I can totally hear the difference between just recording with the built-in mic in the photo booth recording and using the blue yeti mic to record, the difference is amazing.
amazing sound easy to use, brilliant design, solid as the Rock of Gibralter

Summary: This is an amazingly versatile mic that sounds great, is brilliantly designed and really well built. The regular Yeti may be just as good for most applications, and typically over $100 cheaper.
Awkward set up with drivers to download, good quality sound, heavy , bulky

Summary: Nice microphone, but terrible driver installation for computer. It is not just a case of plug in and go, but downloading the driver from Blue's web site, unzipping it and trying to get it to work. My first attempt put a virus on my computer and it had to be reset to an earlier date.
The best microphone in its price group. Easy install too.

Summary: I needed to record a webinar for my job, so I could save the company from having to fly me to all parts of the US. I never expected the great quality of recording which the Blue Yeti Pro Mic gave my voice recordings. Nor did I know how easy it was to plug and play with this mic.
