    Key Features

    Total Recording Control with Yeti
    Yeti features studio controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute and microphone gain - putting you in charge of every level of the recording process. If you’re experiencing distortion or feedback while recording an especially loud source such as the deafening sound of an avalanche, simply adjust the microphone's sensitivity with the gain control. Or if you want to take a break in the middle of a podcast, use the instant mute button.

    The microphone comes equipped with a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack that allows you to listen to what you're recording in real-time, without latency delays—that means no more hearing a note 3 seconds after you played it. You can adjust the volume of your headphones using the control on the front of the microphone.

    Innovative Design Makes Recording Easy
    Yeti doesn’t mind getting pushed around—it lets you adjust and pivot the microphone in relation to the sound source, which optimizes your sound quality. Once you’ve achieved the desired angle, simply hand-tighten the set knobs to secure it in place. Yeti is a side-address microphone, so you can capture the best sound by going face-to-face with it. The microphone can also be folded down for easy portability, or removed completely from its base for mounting directly on a mic stand or Radius II shockmount.

    Hassle-free Setup
    Simply plug Yeti into your computer's USB port with the included USB cable, calibrate it with your operating system, and you're ready to record—rain, shine or snow. Yeti offers driver-free operation, while the Yeti Pro requires easy-to-install drivers, available from Blue.

    Start Recording Quickly
    Who needs a learning curve? Yeti was designed with a convenient, no-hassle workflow in mind. Set up in seconds with the included desktop stand or connect directly to a mic stand. Adjust microphone gain, pick up pattern, headphone volume, or mute/unmute with easy-to-reach controls. And record in comfort with Yeti’s side-address operation—just speak, sing or play into the Yeti on the same side as the Blue logo to capture pro sound.

    4 Pattern Modes*

    Cardioid Mode
    Perfect for podcasts, game streaming, vocal performances, voice-overs and instruments. Cardioid mode records sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone, delivering rich, full-bodied sound.

    Stereo Mode
    Uses both the left and right channels to capture a wide, realistic sound image - ideal for recording acoustic guitar or choir.

    Omnidirectional Mode
    Picks up sound equally from all around the mic. It’s best used in situations when you want to capture the ambience of "being there" - like recording a band's live performance, a multi-person podcast or a conference call.

    Bidirectional
    Records from both the front and rear of the microphone - good for recording a duet or a two-person interview.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Highly recommended product. Its different recording modes make it quite versatile. Sound is very clear and you can adjust the gain to reduce most nose and save time tweaking your recording in an audio editor. The only downside is that it may not work well in noisy environments as it's very sensitive to background noise and it isn't suited to outdoor recordings without adequate protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works a Treat!!! The Blue Yeti is very easy to use, providing you know (or know how to find) how to record sound using software on the Windows operating system. for a USB Microphone, it is very clear & very strong, and I would definitely recommend it. It is very popular for things like YouTube video's, which is how it got recommended to me. I was even able to attach it, to an old mike-stand I had laying around, with it's universal attachment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice speaker and almost nothing wrong. This is an a amazing speaker but the only problem is that it is to sensitive and can pick up sound from the other side of my house but can also be a good thing if you want that type of mic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great bang for your buck! It is considered a low-end, "budget" microphone, but it certainly works like a charm! Don't let that persona fool you if you are considering a purchase of this product. The four settings are great, the gain feature is good, the plug-and-play nature of the USB plugin makes it very flexible. I would certainly recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad product The blue Yeti is a bad choice of microphone. These is practically no noticable difference between it and the Blue snowball, which JB also sells at considerably more value for money. Because its a usb mic, the audio quality is very poor when compared to proper audio recording set ups which you can easily obtain from JB. Many other reviewers have failed to mentioned this products many short comings which can be put down to them having little experience with Audio and Microphones. This microphone is actually fairly good but because its a USB microphone it will sound like most other usb microphones. This is in part due to it being actually limited by the USB technology. EG when the Yeti's Sound is compared to the Snowball (another USB mic from blue) their is practically no difference. I wouldnt recomend buying this product at all and instead you should look through the rest of JB's Catalog which is filled with products much better than this Product.
