    LOVE this product.

    • Written by from Ypsilanti

    This is my second microphone now. My first was from a completely different company and it somehow developed a terrible tinny, static sound over time and I was so disappointed so I had high hopes for this one. I record music and vocals on a regular basis so I needed a microphone I could really depend on.

    First of all, the design is so beautiful and practical. Turning the mic upside down in the holder is a great way to store it on your desk when it's not in use (whereas with my old mic, I had to store it in my desk drawer in a sock, otherwise it would just lay there and roll around and get damaged). It's very simplistic and it actually feels a bit lighter than it looks.

    The sound quality is impeccable and really not expected from a $150 microphone. I've only had mine for about 3 months now but it really hasn't seemed to age at all. It's also very easy to use on a mac, not complicated at all.

    I would recommend this product to anyone for any reason.

    Fantastic!

    • Written by from Caledon East

    Solid, well built device. Great user interface, all you had to do was plug in and start recording. So happy that I treated myself to this microphone. The sound is fantastic, and there are multiple settings on the physical microphone for any type of recording you wish to do.

    Best USB mic

    • Written by from Springfield

    This is the best USB mc I have used, even better than the goofy snow ball. I use this for voice overs and Garageband. If you have even the slightest concept of how to record music this will work perfect for vocals and acoustic instruments. Great product.

    Just freaking awesome!!

    • Written by from North Vancouver

    Got the Yeti a couple of days ago and connected it up to my Macbook pro running Lion and had no issues at all. I was recording in a couple of minutes of unboxing. Also works like a charm on my iPad 2 but does need a powered hub (I have a small Belkin one) to work. Word great with garageband and other recording apps. Awesome to have a studio quality mic for the price, especially with all the modes and patterns that this baby has! Definitely a worthwhile purchase.

    Works exactly as advertised.

    • Written by from connersville

    Having messed with music & recording equipment for years, I recently made the move to Apple and recording on the computer. I didn't want to have to buy interfaces and cords to use my existing equipment. I wanted something that would sound good and was easy to use. I got what I paid for. The mic sounds good on vocals and recording my acoustic guitar. I would recommend this mic to friends and family. It is plug and play....

    Fantastic!

    • Written by from McLoud

    This microphone is fantastic. I bought it to use with my laptop, and it does that perfectly. I got the idea to try it with my iPad2. I used the Apple Camera Connection Kit and plugged the microphone in. I did receive a message that the iPad couldn't power the device, however it works perfectly with the iPad. I have been using this for about a year with multiple Macs and iPads with no problems or issues. I reccomend this microphone to anyone needing a reliable, quality way to record audio. And it looks really cool!

    Fix iPad "Cannot power this device" issue.

    • Written by from WILLSBORO

    Just buy a cheap POWERD USB hub from anywhere. Plug the Camera Connection Kit into the USB hub and also plug the Blue Yeti into the USB hub, and it should work!

    Folk Artists Dream

    • Written by from Barrie

    I initially purchased the Yeti strictly for the purpose of recording vocals as all of my guitar tracks are usually recording using a direct input. Eventually I decided to try recording a live take with multiple musicians along with vocals and the sound was amazing. Plug in and record. Love it!

    My experience in 2 weeks

    • Written by from Austin

    Blue is definitely a great company who make great products for both consumers and professionals. I by no means am a music professionals, just someone who prides himself in putting in a quality effort, with quality products to produce a quality result.

    The Yeti is very simple to connect. Plug and Play in all honesty. I do voiceover work for footage of video games and publish my content on YouTube. Coming from the built-in mic on my iMac, I decided I needed something that would give my viewers a more pleasing, professional experience. This is it. With the ability to select between different pickup patterns, and the built in input for listening to yourself, this was a purchase I was not about to miss.

    5 stars. Great voice quality with no editing, solid build, hefty but professional feeling. For the money, you can't go wrong.

    Fantastic Microphone

    • Written by from Delaware

    Excellent Microphone! This mic picks up the clicking of my phone's keyboard from 6 feet. The clarity is unbelievable, it picks up all of my instruments (including what I consider to be a rather soft ukulele) like a charm. It sounds so good, the music almost records itself. My only complaint (which is not really a complaint) the volume knob seems like a cheap plastic material. The different recording modes really help shape the sound to how you want it, and allow for a variety of recording scenarios. Strongly Recommended!

    Wonderful product, highly recommended!

    • Written by from Redding

    After purchase I was surprised to notice the size of this microphone. Once I setup and configured the quality engaged me as if I was a child memorized by large volume of christmas present fantasia. If someone was to ask if I would recommend this product I would not hesitate. If your thinking about purchasing this fine piece of equipment then please go get it now!

    Stunning Audio Clarity!!!!!

    • Written by from LAKE WORTH

    I was looking at this mic online for about a month now deciding between this and the AT2020 USB mic but couldnt make up my mind... so I went ahead and bought both! I recently returned the AT2020 because the blue yeti blew the AT2020 out of the water! just the clarity alone was brilliant! The Yeti fits Perfectly on my desk and looks awesome!
    It feels like a million bucks when in my hands. No complaints at all!!!!

    Great Recording Mic

    • Written by from Santa Clara

    Ok, let's be honest, unless you're sitting in a professionally mic'ed studio you'd be hard pressed to get a better quality than this. Blue is known for their top quality microphones. Not to throw names around, but if you look, you'll see many professionals using them. I trusted the Blue name and was not disappointed... it can pick up a room conversation with 1 mic like it's two and the people are shotgunning them.

    Excellent! Be sure to turn off the iSight mic...

    • Written by from Poway

    I do professional voice-overs and have a setup that is as simple as the Yeti connected to my MacBook Pro. This is an excellent microphone (for the price).

    ** Be sure to shut off your iSight microphone in OS X or else your recordings may appear to sound very bad. This sometimes does not automatically happen.

    UNMATCHED THX QUALITY SOUND

    • Written by from Gillette

    The Blue Yeti USB recording microphone is, in my opinion far superior to conventional condenser microphones for computer recording. The versatility is great and the sound quality, which is what it's all about in the end, is nothing short of phenomenal. Plugged in to the iMac and it worked right out of the box. No driver install. Every mode produces great results and I especially like the true stereo mode. Captures both instrument and vocals with amazing results. I use Apple Logic 9 and find the vocal tracks utilizing the Blue Yeti are extremely easy to EQ. One thing I found a bonus is that, unlike conventional condenser recording microphones, is that you get crystal clear sound of whatever you're recording, but most of the extraneous noise like breathing is somehow filtered out. Most musicians and vocalists tend to breathe quite heavily as soon as they put on a pair of headphones, causing all sorts of problems for the recording engineer. Not so with the THX certified Blue Yeti! The mute button is a really nice feature too. The first thing I noticed though is how heavy the microphone is. It is a super heavy, all metal mic as is the included stand that it comes with. This is a great recording USB microphone, and with the THX Certification, versatility, and great sound you'll get from this mic, it's actually an incredible value.

    Take time to learn how to set it up

    • Written by from Harlem

    I use my Yeti to record sermons at church. I plug it into my Macbook Pro and record directly into Soundtrack Pro.

    It took five weeks to get the right gain and pattern settings for the best sound, but once I did, the only work I have to do with the audio is trim the ends, normalize levels, and reduce background noise.

    Prior to using the Yeti, I would get the audio (from a burned CD) from the wireless lapel mic through a $2000 audio system. Audio from the Yeti is SO much better.

    Impressed

    • Written by from Indian Trail

    Four pickup patterns, bus-powered USB connection, built-in computer out 2 channel output w/ volume control, gain control... all of that plus great sound quality for $150. Not to mention the sheer convenience of how it works with a computer to become an instant and complete mobile recording setup. I highly recommend it!
