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.

I bought this mic, when it was on sale. Good price, it worked very well and sounded good. I was quite excited to use it on skype calls. Then, the computer went to sleep and the microphone wouldn't wake up, even when it was unplugged and replugged. If I wanted to use the Yeti, the computer had to be rebooted. I searched the internet for solutions. How to keep a USB port awake, not sure how much power it draws but my computer doesn't like it. So it sits on my desk, unplugged, most of the time.

As for the issue of taking over the audio inputs and outputs, yes sorta. I went in the control panel -> clicked on -> sound icon, on the play back tab, reselected my speakers (x-fi)output -> clicked on playback tab, made sure the yeti was selected Default. That was it. It takes over the audio properties on your computer, because it has a build-in headphone jack and the tri-capsule array for directional recording.

I might have rated it lower, if I was sure it was the microphone and not a weak 5 volt power supply on the USB ports in the computer. I would have rated it higher, if it worked all the time.

Well have a good day. and if someone figures out how to keep the Yeti awake and out of hibernation, Write a review somewhere. I will keep searching.

Sound is subpar but it's not bad, just mine didn't work that well. I'd go for an AT2020 for around the same price and AT has better customer service.

I bought this in the past. Only worked for 3 months and computer never re-recognized the microphone anymore. Tried every other USB holes even tried to update drivers, nothing worked. I called the Company and said mine was dead and I have no choice but to purchase a new one.

I am rarely the one to criticize one's service but I could have had other ways around it other than asking me to buy a new one right away. No solutions, no troubleshooting, no options to ship it back to repair it, no apologies about a product that died within only 3 months of usage (to be real, I only used it once a week for YouTube voice overs).

I'm very upset.

I like the look of it and the sound is clear. I use it to record my gaming commentaries. There is two or three things I didn't like, which are the fact that since it is not a air stand, it records the vibrations of my desk. I need to buy the one only air stand made for this mic or to find something really soft to put under to absorb the vibrations... The other thing is still about the stand. I took out the mic from the stand and it was awful to try putting it back.. Yeah and the stand is really cheap so don't drop it cause it will leave a mark instently. The stand mecanic isn't practical. Finally the mute button needs to be pressed several times before it actually works. But overall I like it, it records well for me.

Pros:
The microphone is very pretty and feels robust.

Cons:
Having it on your computer desk, it picks up every little slight bump, which means it's essentially unusable for things like podcasts without some sort of rigging. It also picks up the sound from my headphones, creating an echo, which is also annoying for Google Talk. Finally, it's only 44.1 khz, so the sound quality is really not any better than what you can get from any old headset microphone.

Conclusion:
I really don't see a point to this thing... annoying quirks make it less useful than a headset mic, and the quality is relatively the same as a headset microphone anyhow. I wish I had bought the pro.

I read the reviews for the Blue Yeti and decided I would give it a try. I currently have a Samson GTrack USB microphone. In comparing the two for singing, the GTrack has a much richer sound. The Blue Yeti has more 'trebel' and has a harsher sound. It also picks up ambient noise. Mind you, the GTrack is a bit more expensive than the Blue Yeti.

If purchasing a microphone for singing, I would recommend the GTrack over the Yeti. I did have some issues using the GTrack with my older Mac computer, but it works well with my MacBook that is about a year old.

I love everything about this mic...not a bad thing to say about it...EXCEPT...it seems like the knobs (especially the mic gain and headphone volume knob) were put together after the budget was already spent on the rest of the unit. The knobs move too freely inside the cavity and as you turn them they often touch the sides almost scraping as they rotate. This makes a perfect USB microphone less than perfect in my humble opinion, and thus worthy of only 4 stars instead of 5.
