Great sound, great price, poor mobility
18.07.2015
The Blue Yeti mic really sounds great and I have had no problem recording 2-3 persons at the same time for a podcast. Especially wen you play around with the patterns you will easily find some kind of sweet spot for your sound, depending on what you're doing. I've mainly been using the mic for recording podcasts and interviews, but I also tried it out with an acoustic duo at a micro-gig and it worked a treat.

Considering the money, and what you get for it, it's a really price-worthy device.

The setup is also really straightforward - just plug and record. But this is where my problems started. I had some problmes with my pc, or probably just the softwear, recognizing the mic. At some point my laptop switch between using the Yetis headphone-out as a main monitor and using just the laptops speakers or even the laptops headphones out jack. Since the Yeti is also kind of a soundcard I would have loved to have some kind of reset-button or even an on/off switch. I also don't understand why they put the mute-button on it. I atleast never use it and it can even get a bit confusing at some points.

When the Yeti failed (just a few times) I switched to eighter a Zoom H2N,or at some points the Zoom H4N. I find the all-in-one machines more reliable, but that's just my own preference. And they sadly tend to be a lot more expensive than the Yeti. If you're somewhat stationary in what ever you do, I would recommend the Yeti. But If you're moving around a lot (the yeti is quite a big device) and need a faster more reliable setup I would consider maybe a Zoom or a Olympus portable recorder.

Good mic, but not for everything.
Nick T, 12.03.2015
I bought this mic to make some demos and record with my acoustic guitar. The mic quality is excellent, just as good as condenser with an audio interface. However there are a few issues that stand out to me as well as some really good features.

First off, the different polar patterns are brilliant, I love the idea of that. I wanted to use this to record my acoustic in stereo but the stereo setting isn't as strong as I'd hoped for. That said It's not rubbish, and with a bit more experimentation, I could probably get it to sound quite good.

There are quite a few controls on here and they're all nicely layed out but they aren't great quality and the polar pattern switch can be really hard to change.

I think one big warning that everyone should know about is the optional shock mount. Blue recently changed the design from bad to worse. The old one struggled to hold the weight of the mic but it could be sorted by changing the plastic washers with the rubber ones from the metal base that the mic comes with, simple. However the new design has no washers and there is no way of fixing the poblem, several times, I've been recording my guitar and the shock mount has given out during the take.

Despite my ranting, I should say, this IS a good microphone but not for everything, if you're recording an acoustic guitar look elsewhere, if you want to record podcasts and voiceovers where it'll be sat in the stock metal stand, it'll be really good and a lot less complicated to set up compared to a studio mic and interface that required drivers etc.

Nice piece of equipment
Lars5128, 12.10.2014
From opening the box to unpacking it - the feel of quality is ever present. The Yeti is heavy, with a good and solid stand. Connecting the Yeti to the computer was really simple using the included USB cable. No drivers needed(at least on windows 8). You got a dial for setting the sound characteristic (sound field) and one dial for setting the gain. The built in mic amplifier is really good, no noise, only clear sound. If I where to wish for something, it would be the ability to crank up the gain a bit more. If you are sitting 3-4 people around a table using it as a POD mic, you could use some more gain(but this is no big problem, just add some more gain in the recording software).

No external powersource is needed, just a USB port with the standard 500ma.

For The Ultimate Home Studio
23.12.2015
I've been using this microphone for a little over a year now and must say that it's the best USB mic I've recorded with. My goal was to record my guitar songs with it for a project and it went flawlessly.

The sound is beautiful, harmonic and won't pick up too much of the background noise. Easy to install and use on my Macbook Pro. It's a great choice for Logic Pro users.

However, the Yeti is slightly big and clumsy. It is no doubt a neat looking microphone, but it's hard to tilt and keep it in position when the cord outlet is designed right under.

Overall experience: The best choice for the producer on the go! Blue Yeti is pure simplicity and the company has definitely succeeded with this product.
