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.
