Know your gear

The Yeti is an advanced and versatile multi-pattern USB microphone. Combining three capsules and four different pattern settings, the Yeti is the ultimate tool for creating amazing recordings, directly to your computer. THX Certified for exceptional sound and performance, the Yeti can capture anything with a clarity and ease unheard of in a USB microphone.

The Yeti features Blue's innovative triple capsule array, allowing for recording in stereo or your choice of three unique patterns, including cardioid, omnidirectional, and bidirectional, giving you recording capabilities usually requiring multiple microphones.

The Yeti utilizes a high quality analog-to-digital converter to send incredible audio fidelity directly into your computer, a built-in headphone amplifier for zero-latency monitoring, and simple controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute, and microphone gain located directly on the microphone. The Yeti's exceptional performance and fidelity have earned it the distinction of being the first THX Certified Microphone, a validation of Yeti's incredibly low distortion, high fidelity, and balanced frequency response. There are no drivers to install, simply plug the Yeti into your PC or Mac, load up your favorite recording software, and record something amazing.

4 Settings, Endless Possibilities: You can quickly select from each of Yeti's four pattern settings by simply rotating the pattern selector knob:
•Stereo mode is great for capturing a realistic stereo image
•Cardioid is the most commonly used mode and can be useful in most any situation. If you are recording vocals, a podcast, or a voiceover, cardioid is likely your best choice.
•Omnidirectional means the microphone picks up sound equally from all directions
•Bidirectional means the microphone picks up sound at the front and rear of the microphone, while the sounds to the sides are "rejected", or not picked up

The Yeti features tools and recording capabilities usually requiring multiple microphones and devices, all with the simplicity of a plug play USB microphone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullI've been using this microphone for about a year now for streaming and general communication. This microphone shines once you get the basics down and can be finely tuned to reflect studio quality audio. I switched from a standard headset to a Blue Yeti and instantly found the difference to be phenomenal. The directional input works wonders for cutting out zone specific background noise.One note, however. I did not really like how the cable and stand interacted. If you wanted to re position it, it sometimes would tug at the cable. I alleviated this problem with switching to a mic arm.Overall, I would definitely recommend this product and company. I had an issue early on when a shock mount for this microphone and not only did they send me a replacement, they also sent me parts that would be included in the next version of the mount as well. Kudos to Blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nullOne of the best microphones (for the money) for videos. I don't even like my own voice, but the Yeti makes even it sound good.
