    Brilliant Microphone

    • Written by from Aberdeen

    I used this microphone to record a suite of software tutorial videos and the quality I got out of the microphone was simply amazing. It gave the videos a very good feeling of quality with a soft warm recording tone for voice.

    Previously I had tried several other devices including the inbuilt Macbook Pro's microphone, a set of Astro Gaming A30's and several other similar headset microphones - none of these came even close to the Yeti.

    I see one person is complaining about the microphone picking up background noise. It is very sensitive (which is usually a sign of a good quality microphone?) and if not adjusted correctly will pick up sound from many tens of metres away. I happened to build a small recording room with pillows as sound bafflers to elliminate outside noise while turning up the gain but I also found dropping the gain and setting it to directional gave very good results as long as Ispoke close to the microphone (as you might see if you watch anyone speaking on the radio).

    5/5

    Terrible mic for podcasting

    • Written by from Boca Raton

    After plugging it in directly to my mac the background noise coming through this mic was terrible. I would expect it to sound at least better than my free apple headset mic but a side by side test showed the FREE apple mic was way better. Plus, under system preferences the volume was going chaotic all by itself - and it would only not clip if it was set at under 10% volume. not sure if this is a mavericks issue but either way, not happy.

    Does not work with iPhone or iPad

    • Written by from Redruth

    I had purchased this product based on the reviews that is it a great solution for iPhone and iPad recording using the camera adaptor. However it is no longer possible to use it for this as apple have restricted the power output of their devices with the upgrade to IOS 5, so this is completely useless unless used on a Mac laptop or desktop. Having said this if you want this for laptop and desktop use then the quality is fantastic.
