Summary: I purchased this item from another "online" seller, simply because it was cheaper. The mic came shrink wrapped, in its original package, and brand new. The microphone worked flawlessly while I did a two hour radio show, and then, the system reported the microphone was disconnected, and wanted to know if it should forget the device. The cable was still plugged in, and the light on the Yeti was still on. Checking the connected devices, reported it was no longer connected.
