  • Solid Contruction, Superior Quality
    Verified BuyerReviewed by ScanningFool - July 8, 2017

    Superior sound quality over cheaper desktop mics, webcam mics, and built-in mics. Onboard hardware performs well cancelling most background noise and delivering full, rich sound. Pop screen can, of course, be added and used, but excellent recording results even without. Onboard mic gain, pattern, front facing mute button, and headphone monitor volume all very convenient. Can be used as delivered on solidly constructed, heavy desktop base, or can be mounted on a boom.

  • Excellent Sound Quality
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Chuck - December 1, 2017

    The quality of this mic is impeccable, however it picks up literally everything. If you are looking to use this as a microphone for your computer to stream or do anything other than have short conversations or voice commands then a boom arm is mandatory. The stand it comes with picks up every tap, touch, bump, mouse click, or keyboard stroke that you make. I turned the mic onto cardiod and the gain all the way down and it still picks up my mouse clicks. I have gotten it down to a minimum with some third party programs, but it is still there. This microphone is excellent for recording your voice or sounds that you need for editing, however it might pick up more than you would like.

  • AMAZING MIC SUITABLE FOR EVERYTHING!!!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Banned - October 15, 2016

    One of the best USB microphones I have ever used!! I started out using a microphone built into my webcam, it's a Logitech webcam, it didn't sound too bad but had alot of distortion and I wanted something more. So I went out to get a Blue Yeti and it made a days difference. Highly suggest it!! You will not be disappointed!!!

  • Very Good Microphone
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Mastertarl - February 18, 2017

    This is one very sensitive microphone. It offers the ability to record sound in all directions or from just the front. It works really well with Adobe Audition. Very easy setup. Mute button is very handy. You can connect your headphones directly into the microphone and hear yourself while recording. While using the front directional only, the microphone did not record the airplanes out side passing over nor did it pick up the loud clicking noise form a hard drive across the room. All things I was worried about during a recording, but true to its directional recording it did pick them up. Switch to full circle recording and it got both sounds.

  • Great Product
    Verified BuyerReviewed by ChoDanger - August 9, 2013

    This product was worth the money, and for anyone who does small podcasts or streaming, this is much better than hearing someone gargle over a headset mic. Was nice to know that it could adapt onto a mic stand as I dont use a desk when recording so using a mic stand instead is perfect. Product is really easy to use, just plug in, switch recording device to Yeti and thats it. Be wary though, do not try listening to your voice (if using headphones) through your OS Settings, there will be a small delay and results in what Speech Zapper does best. Instead get a cheap earplug piece and plug it into the mic headset out port on the yeti and use that.
