Summary: i haven't had a chance to try this mike out as of yet but my friends who i used to DJ with for an internet radio station have heard of these and some already have 1 and they like the blue YETI so we'll see here soon after we get resettled in our new home and i get back on air
Summary: This mic works wonders for me. I have it suspended from my conference room ceiling connected to a mac pro for VOIP calls and video conferencing... It has been working great for about 9 months or so. The room is a 20'x25' or so. I wish it came with a baffle or something since I have speakers in the overhead as well, but I just have to fine tune it to reduce any feedback, if I have any. Most of the times it is really an issue on the remote ends.
Summary: Got this microphone since 2 days ago and I must say it's a pretty big but very nice looking microphone. Although the sound haven't blown my mind yet. I'm still configuring with the settings to get the best out of it. My mic is like 8 inches away from my face and once I'm speaking with gain low you can barrely hear my voice and onve I bring the gain a bit up you already start hearing things from 10 feet away and soft background noices. I hope I can fix this soon!
Summary: I needed a mic to use to narrate online training classes. This was the best mic that I could find locally, and I was in a rush to meet a work deadline. All in all I am happy with the quality of the mic. I have not had a problem with "pops", even without a pop guard. There is a setting on the mic that supposedly isolates the mic to pick up sound only from the front of the mic. I wish this worked better.
Pros: It's a very solid piece of equipment. I am impressed with the build quality, and the ability to direct the mic.
Cons: It will not fit in a standard shock mount, and the stock stand is at a set hight that is too low for me.
Summary: I got this to do mostly podcasts and voice recordings. It is easy to set up and worked without any driver installs. All you have to do is plug it in and select the Yeti as microphone in your recording software. I didn't realize I had to set the speaker to the yeti also to get the monitoring right. Adjusting the volume and sensitivity settings are not really straight forward and take some time to optimize using the OSX sound settings.
Pros: easy to set up, works without drivers on my mac
Cons: needed some adjustments to get voice recordings to sound right
