  • Summary: Overall not bad, If it was in the $70.00 range it would have been a much better price for the features. I am still very pleased with the microphone.
  • Pros: High quality, very well built
  • Cons: A little pricey for the features

The Yeti Pro looks and feels A Grade, but quality wise, a mixed bag.

  • Summary: The Blue Yeti Pro Condenser Mic USB is a mixed bag. The mic itself looks and feels A grade, but the recording quality is just OK for a singer song/writer. Too much crack and pop especially when you go in for those high notes! I have a better set up, a Scarlett 2i2 with a Shure Beta 87C Cardiod Condensor Mic. No pop, crack, or spark.

  • Summary: Okay but I'm returning it and getting a studio quality mic.
  • Pros: Very Good Shipping, Nice design
  • Cons: Picked up ALL background noise (I don't live in a loud place), fuzzy somewhat, is absolutely TERRIBLE with skype.

Voiceover: yes; Video: no!

  • Summary: So having a triple webcam set up for live switching with Wirecast, I thought I'd like a nice pro mic. I was not looking for a mic like this, but I had seen them around and wanted to give it a shot. My problem is that in a situation where you shoot video podcasts, the audio is too sanitized. It sounds nasal and the total cut off of ambient room noise was a but freaky and unnatural while watching the playback. Kinda like it was noise cancelled.
  • Pros: Solid build, noise isolation, loads of options.
  • Cons: Sounds a little like you are in a booth, cuts out too much ambient noise for video podcasts or live studio audiences.

Worked great until ios 4.2

  • Summary: IOS 4.2 upgrade changes the power out put for the camera connection kit, they reduced the power from 100ma to 20ma. I have the 64 gig wifi iPad and recently brought the blue yeti microphone to record my band practices. iOS 3.2.2 powered my microphone and the recordings were great! I was so excited about the new iOS 4.2 that I didn't wait to see if there would be problems, now I cannot go back to 3.2.2 apple will not allow it and my 140.00 dollar mic.

Does not work with iPhone or iPad

Huw B, Apple
16 January 2013
  • Summary: I had purchased this product based on the reviews that is it a great solution for iPhone and iPad recording using the camera adaptor. However it is no longer possible to use it for this as apple have restricted the power output of their devices with the upgrade to IOS 5, so this is completely useless unless used on a Mac laptop or desktop. Having said this if you want this for laptop and desktop use then the quality is fantastic.

Gutes Konzept, Tonqualität suboptimal.

  • Summary: Ich habe im März 2012 im House Of Sound in Basel, Schweiz dieses Mikrofon erworben und habe es bis im März dieses Jahres auch ausgiebig verwendet. Zurückblickend kann (muss) ich sagen, dass das Mikrofon eigentlich für den Preis relativ wenig bietet, denn für ~200 Schweizer Franken kann man deutlich bessere Mikrofone kaufen.
  • Pros: Grosses einsatzgebiet, Benutzerfreundlichkeit
  • Cons: Preis, Sound
