Showing 1-10 of 18
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: Just got it yesterday. Plugged into USB on iMac. Turned on computer and it will not show in Sound of System Preferences as it says it will. Tried unplugging it and plugging it back in and still nothing. Does not work with Lion OS it seems.
Summary: Upgraded to Lion OS X and Blue Yeti Pro. Does not work. When plugged in USB, the cable is loose light blinks. Seems high quality product, but manufacturer skimps on updates and fixes. Spent approx $300, and very upset with Apple and Blue for not resolving before launch.
Summary: I purchased this item but I did not open it for a few weeks. It does not work at all. The volume knob is not fixed, there is no sound although it receives power. The Apple Return policy refers to goods you can return online and goods you can't.
Summary: This mic is way too sensitive even with the gain a quarter from zero. It amplifies anything and everything even on another floor. I have no choice but to return it as even with the gain set to 0, I end up hearing a buzzing noise.
Summary: I got the blue yeti mic as a gift for christmas, a couple weeks after having it the power supply starts cutting in and out over and over again, the mic wont work for anything i need it to. very un happy with the gift.
Summary: After plugging it in directly to my mac the background noise coming through this mic was terrible. I would expect it to sound at least better than my free apple headset mic but a side by side test showed the FREE apple mic was way better.
Summary: This beast weighs around 5 lbs and is over a foot high when extended. I can't get it to record without a hum that ruins everything. Overly sensitive and no way even with the gain down at lowest setting to get rid of it.
