Four Different Pattern Modes for Versatile Recording

Using Blue Microphone's proprietary tri-capsule technology, the Yeti can record sounds that range from the barely audible to the deafeningly loud--all without a loss of fidelity. Depending on what kind of sound you are recording, you can choose from four distinct pattern modes:

  • Stereo mode: The stereo mode uses both the left and right channels, and is ideal for capturing a realistic, general sound image.
  • Cardioid mode: Well-suited to podcasts, sung vocals, and other voice work, cardioid mode records sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone. It delivers a rich, full-bodied sound.
  • Omnidirectional mode: Omnidirectional mode picks up sound equally from all directions. It is best used in situations when you want to capture the ambience of "being there"--like a live recording of a band's performance.
  • Bidirectional mode: Bidirectional mode records from both the front and the rear of the microphone. It is ideal for capturing the nuance of a musical instrument, or recording an interview between two people.
Control Your Recording in Real-Time

With its controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute, and microphone gain, the Yeti puts you in charge of every level of the recording process. If you are experiencing distortion or feedback while recording an especially loud source, simply adjust the microphone's sensitivity with the gain control. Or, if you want to take a break in the middle of a podcast, use the instant mute button.

The microphone comes equipped with a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack and allows you to listen to what you're recording in real-time, without latency delays. You can adjust the volume of your headphones using a control on the front of the microphone.

Innovative Design Makes Recording Easy

The Yeti features a visual design inspired by classic recording equipment--a stylish, retro aesthetic that will complement any computer system. Its metal grille and shiny, chrome-toned frame recall the look of old-timey microphones.

Because it's built on a hinge, you can adjust and pivot the microphone in relation to the sound source, improving sound quality. Once you have it at a desired angle, you can use the set screws to secure it in place. The microphone can also be folded down for easy portability, or removed completely from its base for field recordings.

Hassle-Free Setup

The Yeti requires no complicated drivers to operate; simply plug it into your computer's USB port with the included USB cable, calibrate it with your operating system, and you're ready to record.

The microphone is compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP (Home and Professional), and Mac OS X (10.4.11 or higher), and requires a minimum of 64 MB of RAM.

The Yeti USB Microphone is backed by a two-year limited warranty.

Sound is fantastic, and it's a solid built microphone if you don't consider the nobs. They are plastic and cheap, some are very stiff which doesn't make sense to me because I feel almost as if I'm going to break the mic in trying to switch settings. Overall very happy, but there is ONE MAJOR FLAW they don't tell you about. If you plan on using this microphone with any stand/boom other than the one that comes attached, Blue is going to charge you $80 for the one shock mount in existence that works with this mic. I was very displeased at this, seeing as I already invested so much. These two reasons prevent a 5 star rating, but I am still pleased with the sound quality itself, which is what matters in the end.

The Blue Microphones Yeti is praised as one of the best microphone. That is not false, but it's also not true. Let me explain myself. The Yeti is an excellent microphone, its sound quality is great. It's really hard to get better sound quality for the price. However, there's a few problems with it.

1) This microphone is very, very sensitive. Unless your computer makes no sound whatsoever, your chair isn't squeaky, you live in a very quiet place and you don't hit your desk... there's going to be a lot of noise entering that microphone. You can adjust the gain, but even at the lowest level I could put it and still hear my voice when talking, the Yeti would still pick-up any sound in my room. So, if you want to use this microphone, make sure everything you own is quiet. You could probably remove most (if not all) of the background noise with some software, but when you're talking live it's a little annoying.

2) The default stand included is terrible. There are no words to describe how terrible it is. If you so much as touch your desk your microphone will pick it up. Don't even talk about hitting your desk, to anyone listening it'll sound like a plane crashed in their ears. So, if you want to buy this microphone, get a different stand. BE WARNED however that this microphone is very large and not every stand will be able to mount. It's also quite heavy, keep that in mind.

3) Not only is the stand terrible for the undesirable noise it creates, it's also impossible to add a shock mount to it. Adding a standard pop filter is possible, but it can be tricky depending on the model. It'll also make this already bulky microphone even bulkier. Say goodbye to free space on your desk, because it won't exist after you install that.

While I expected this microphone to catch sounds really well, it came to be much above my expectations. It caught much subtler sounds from very far with insane clarity and, because of this, I'd warn anyone who has a friend with one of those and that have great quality headphone because they'll catch many sounds (gladly with no interferences).

Because it has (apparently) an included speaker, it ends up with a large amount of buttons on it, possibly making it a little annoying to move around to play with its configurations.

Finally, it is very well built, very solid (unlike a few others I've seen that were generally made of thicker plastics), very large and fairly heavy (for microphone standards), although I'd not fear it to break anytime soon. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase, and feel it has a great price tag, even more so when it has specials put on it (seriously, it's horribly cheap for the quality it offers), and offers little to no problems (horribly easy to setup up as well).

I've had my brand new Blue Yeti for less than a week. I really wanted to like this microphone, and bought it based on the excellent reviews for sound quality, etc. However, you are gambling if you buy this microphone. The connection to the computer is unreliable at best: for me, it drops most of the time unless I lightly hold the cable end in place with a light finger touch.

This problem is a result of the use of the USB mini-B connector, and because of that, I'm unlikely to simply exchange my unit for another because the mini-B connector is a known source of problems. Just search for the question "Why was Mini USB deprecated in favor of Micro USB?" and you'll understand: "poor reliability after a significant but not vast number of uses." (Very few uses, in my case.)

I can't recommend this microphone until and unless Blue releases a new version addressing the issue.

The Blue Yeti is amazing!
The sound quality is crisp and clear, and the ability to adjust certain settings with the knobs on the mic is nice to have.
I've heard some complaints that it will pick up your neighbor talking, or someone cooking downstairs or whatever, but I haven't had that problem : Just don't set your gain past 40% and you should be fine. Another thing is that people are saying the microphone is big, it's big for sure, but its not something I would fret over. The stand really picks up vibrations and there is a lack of options in terms of stands, arms, and shock mounts for the Yeti. I just put the mic on the foam piece that came in the box which conveniently fits the base of the microphone and it helps a lot. Do I recommend it? Yes. Is it worth the money? Yes. (But it is cheaper in the States)
