  • Excerpt: Have had the Yeti for 2 weeks now and it works like a charm. The set up was quick and easy. Connected the USB cable to my MAC and it was immediately recognized by Garageband. Have used it in Cardioid mode to create voice-overs for a slide show.

Blue Yeti Mic

qpeelor, Ciao
12 June 2015
  • Excerpt: If you are willing to invest $130 on this, then i would defiantly recommend this mic. First you have to know what your recording needs are. Next, you have to be familiar with these types of mics in general.
  • Pros: Great sound quality .  Simplistic design .  Can control almost every aspect right on the mic .
  • Cons: Depending on your price range, it can be a bit expensive .  A bit large .

Not so good for acoustic guitar

Allan R., FutureShop
1 June 2014
  • Summary: Works great for voice, but I found it not suitable for recording acoustic guitar - my guitar is a Martin D35 that sounds great in live settings but not so great when recorded with the Yeti. In hindsight, I see that the Yeti is advertised for voice (podcasting, etc.), not music recording.

Blue Yeti Microphone Review (Music Production & Usual Recording)

LkRussell, Ciao
11 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased the Blue Yeti Microphone as an inexpensive option; ranging at the time from $300.00+. I had watched countless demonstrations of it's use online and not to my surprise (Typically Blue Microphones haven't failed me) I was very impressed.
  • Pros: 4 Polar Pattern Settings/Direct (zero latency) Headphone Monitoring/Plug - N - Play Connectivity
  • Cons: Threads on bottom (to attach a mic stand) wore down very quickly/Slight Hum upon long use (5 - 8hrs)

Great recording mic for the price!

Alex, FutureShop
3 June 2013
  • Summary: This mic works flawless under purpose of recording narrations and vocal. Very solid build, "out-of-expectation" huge. Though the matching pop filter is hard to find, I'd recommend it at all costs.

You will need to boost some frequencies

sw80, Audiofanzine
13 November 2012
  • Excerpt: The Yeti is a USB microphone (condenser) that has a cardioids, bidirectional, and omnidirectional switchable modes. You can use this microphone with any computer that has a USB 2.0 port which is just about any computer made within the last 10 years.

One of the best USB microphones and comparison to blue yeti pro

SAntoniou, Ciao
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: You are able to use this microphone for many purposes yet the best use is music recording or making commentaries. I personally use this for both of these things and and surprisingly good even with electric guitars and bass.
  • Pros: Amazing sound quality, looks nice on desk, works through USB, easy to access mute button
  • Cons: heavy for travel if you want to use it for that .

A Good Mic That Could've Been Great (Lion Issues)

JD, Apple
24 December 2011
  • Summary: As you've already read from so many other reviews sound quality and settings both get 5 stars each. So I won't get into that. The Negative. Build quality - Knobs and USB connection are very flimsy. Included USB cable is troublesome and low quality. Stand is double the weight of the microphone.
