    NOTE: I used the Blue Yeti Microphone to record this Video Review

    Blue Yeti Review Summary
    The Blue Yeti is an excellent plug and record USB microphone that has dramatically increased the quality of my voice recordings. It has a solid & sleek build, is easy to use, and most importantly clearly records my voice.

    Introduction – Who I am and how do I use this product
    My name is Antonio and I own and operate ATailoredSuit.com; I have been using the Blue Yeti since February to speak with clients on Skype and to record podcasts and videos about men’s style and custom clothing. Prior to owning the Blue Yeti I used the Blue Snowflake for one year; before that I used the built in microphone on my computer and headsets. For the last 6 months I have been looking at purchasing the Blue Snowball; when this microphone came out I decided to make this purchase instead.

    Pros – Things I Love
    1. Sound Recording Quality – The most important quality in a microphone; from my limited 30 day use and when compared to the past types of microphones I am used to (Blue Snowflake, Logitech Webcam 9000 Microphone, Various Headset microphones, Built in Computer Microphones) this Microphone beat them all.
    2. Plug and Play – I have seamlessly used this microphone on 3 separate computers, one running XP, the other Vista, and on a Windows 7 machine. In each case it was immediately recognized and clearly marked as the Blue Yeti
    3. Simple Knobs and Design – Mute, Mode, Headphone Volume and MIC Gain Control. Stand can be tightened and microphone removed.
    4. Solid Build – Overall, Solid (One small complaint below). The 10 foot USB cord was a nice touch.
    5. Playful Approach – Blue has decided to present the Yeti in a playful manner. They appeal to the creative and make the manual much more approachable for those of us not technically inclined.

    Cons – Things I am not happy with
    1. Size – It weight 3.5 pounds and stands 1 foot high – I am used to this now, but be prepared for a big footprint!
    2. Looseness of Volume & Gain Controls – A small complaint, but for an overall solid device these feel like they will be the first things to break.

    Final Recommendation
    The Blue Yeti is an amazing microphone that was well worth the investment. It has already dramatically increased the quality of my voice recordings and I recommend it to any podcaster. I give this product 9 out of 10 stars (5 out of 5 for Amazon!), my only knock that the price maybe too high for some.

    Bottom line: Outstanding value for a great sounding mic!

    What I liked:

    – Superior sound (watch, and more important listen to, the video)
    – Solidly built with a sturdy stand
    – It looks cooler than a Snowball (imho)
    – It worked immediately with my 64-bit Win7 system. No downloads, additional drivers, or other confusion. True plug and play.
    – Has a gain control
    – Has a mute button
    – The pattern select switch is clearly marked with the mic pattern
    – Uses a standard USB to Mini cable. The Yeti comes with one that’s about 6′ long.
    – Very reasonable price given the quality

    What might have been better

    – It would have been really, really nice if there was a place to securely connect the pop filter to the Yeti stand. After living with my duct tape and cable tie solution for a little while, I like it better than even if the champ had worked. It provides a rock solid connection between the filter and the mic and nothing sticks out/up as it would with the clamp. You can, if you like, go back to the beginning of this point and remove one or two of the “really’s”.

    To watch for:

    – The Yeti couldn’t get enough power to run when I connected it to an unpowered hub in place of the Snowball. (Blue says you should always connect their mics to a USB port directly attached to your computer, not a hub. I got lucky with the Snowball.) After I switched to a different (powered) hub it works fine. The Plugable USB 2.0 10 Port Hub (with Power Adapter) is the hub that worked with the Yeti and it’s excellent in many respects.

    Other notes:

    – In the video I used Scotch Transparent Duct Tape, 2 Inches x 20 Yards, Clear (2120-A). It comes in handy for a great many things besides connecting a pop filter to a microphone.

    And finally, if you’re still uncertain, here’s my recommendation. If you already have a Snowball then there may not be a reason to upgrade. The sound is better but maybe not better enough to justify buying a whole new mic. However, if it’s a choice between the two, I would recommend the Yeti, both for sound quality, features, and (yes) appearance.

    BTW, I feel that honest, effective reviews, accompanied by detailed videos, can take the place of first-hand experiences that are often lacking in online shopping. I’ve always appreciated the help I’ve gotten from other reviewers and try to return the favor as best as I can. I hope you found this review helpful and the video at least entertaining. If there was anything you thought was lacking or unclear leave a comment and I’ll do what I can to fix it.

    Blue’s latest is a home run, January 4, 2010
    Amazon Verified Purchase(http://www.amazon.com/gp/community-help/amazon-verified-purchase/187-2946035-0146018', ‘AmazonHelp’, ‘width=400,height=500,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,toolbar=0,status=1′);return false; “>What’s this?)
    This review is from: Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone – Silver Edition (Electronics)

    Blue has become famous for its striking microphone designs, and the retro-modern Yeti is a worthy addition to the company’s product lineup.

    The first thing you’ll notice is what a beautiful, well-designed object this is. The Yeti has a solid custom desk stand that provides a bit of built-in cable management for headphone and USB cords. Despite its outdoorsy name, the Yeti is not the ideal choice for recording in the wild — it’s really big and heavy. That said, the swivel-stand arrangement allows you to rotate the body of the mic upside down into the base if you do need portability. (Unlike Blue’s higher end studio mics, no travel box or road case is included, but at this price point, that’s not a surprise.)

    On the front: a mic mute button and headphone volume dial. On the rear, mic level control and a pickup pattern selector. The dials are just a bit jiggly and plasticky for such an otherwise elegant design. On the bottom are the zero-latency headphone jack and mini-USB connector. The swiveling body makes accessing the USB and headphone ports a snap. Another thoughtful addition down-under is a 5/8 inch threaded hole that allows you to remove the base and mount the Yeti on a standard microphone floor stand.

    The Yeti houses a trio mic elements to offer stereo, omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure-eight pickup patterns. The selections give the mic a versatile bag of sound tricks, whether you’re recording a solo podcast, taping an interview or meeting, or laying down some vocals in GarageBand. The headphone amp doesn’t exactly go to 11, but the mic delivers a pretty respectable output level. We’re talking 16-bit USB audio, so the Yeti doesn’t have quite the full warmth and sonic detail of a “real” large-diaphragm condenser like Blue’s pro studio models, but the sound is surprisingly good for a USB mic, with much less noise than similarly-featured competitors like the Samson G-Track.

    No drivers needed — just plug in the included USB cable. On a Mac, select “Yeti Stereo Microphone” for both input and output in the Sound control panel of System Preferences. Configuring Yeti in GarageBand’s Audio preferences is a snap, too.

    To avoid P-pops and breath sounds when working up-close, you might want to invest in a pop screen of some kind, though it seems a shame to put a big foam hat on top of such a beautiful head.

    Did we mention how cool The Yeti looks sitting on your desk? The streamlined aluminum styling matches the finish of Apple’s current product lineup quite well.

    The Yeti’s sound quality and multiple pickup patterns raise the bar for USB mics, and leave even Blue’s much-beloved Snowball playing catchup. For the price, a product that looks and sounds this good is going to be pretty hard to beat. Highly recommended.
