Blue Yeti Pro USB

Daylyn P, Apple Store
7 December 2011
  • 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. A quick search reveals that many others are having this issue. Try to avoid investing in USB microphone until Apple or Blue resolve this issue.

Blue Yeti connection problem

MS, Apple Store
27 January 2011
  • 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. It is not the cord either it is the mic itself i use the same cord for my camera to up load pictures. I called apple to return it but they said it was too late. for the week it did work the sound quality was very good.

Terrible mic for podcasting

Christian H, Apple
11 November 2013
  • 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. Plus, under system preferences the volume was going chaotic all by itself - and it would only not clip if it was set at under 10% volume. not sure if this is a mavericks issue but either way, not happy.

Expensive and Useless

Sharon, FutureShop
3 June 2013
  • 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. My Logitech was a 100 x better than this thing, but sadly they don't make it anymore. I've had this thing for months trying to test settings and get it to sound as clear at my Logitech one did, I've given it more than a fair shot.

Too quiet with frustrating beeping noise.

Alex, FutureShop
27 January 2013
  • Summary: Upon purchase this microphone was incredible, easiest the best thing I had ever owned. However when I came to use it a second time the recording was too quiet and a continuous beeping noise was being registered. I checked all volume controls and settings and there was no solution.
