3.0 out of 5 stars Blue Yeti - Singing Nov. 30 2010
Color Name:Silver
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great quality, a few concerns Jan. 13 2014
By Matt
Color Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what you want for casual home recording Nov. 25 2013
Color Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
If you are that guy sitting at his computer holding his acoustic guitar and playing into a ten dollar microphone you found at the bottom of your old playstation box, stop doing that immediately. Just buy this microphone and plug it into your computer. It's exactly what you want/need to get practicing and produce some pretty decent quality recordings that can be done at home with no other equipment but a pair of headphones and any random sound you feel can pass for music. I had an old computer and it worked fine. Worked better with a mac.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yeti - highs and lows, Sept. 3 2010
Color Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Mic Dec 29 2013
Color Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
A great beginner mic for those looking to get started with recording. The sound is good though I've had some issues with my computer getting confused whether to output the sound to the mic's headphone jack or the computers. But over all it has worked exactly as I assumed.

Color Name:Silver
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.
