About the Product
Create unparalleled recordings directly in your computer with Blue Microphone's Yeti USB Microphone. The Yeti uses Blue Microphone's proprietary tri-capsule technology to produce pristine, studio-quality recordings. It features four different pattern settings so you can record vocals, instrumental music, podcasts, or interviews in ways that would normally require multiple microphones. With simple controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute, and microphone gain, you'll be creating exceptional recordings right out of the box.
From the best-selling Yeti family comes Yeti Pro—the first microphone that captures 24-bit/192kHz digital recordings on your desktop, and connects to professional recording equipment in the studio. Featuring three custom condenser capsules and four different pattern settings, Yeti Pro delivers detailed audio that’s more than four times higher resolution than a CD—during any recording scenario. Whether you record at home, in a studio, or in the Himalayas, Yeti Pro is the most versatile microphone solution.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Blue Yeti USB Condenser Microphone
  • The size is good and the handle and comfort to play is good.
  • Very nice-looking, substantial in weight. Versatile with configurations.
  • Easy to setup and create clear and crisp audio! Fairly large for the size.
  • Although fairly large in size, the quality of the product is evident. Large selection of settings.
  • It is very sturdy and has some weight to it. It looks and feels professional!
Blue Yeti Pro USB Condenser Microphone
  • Some people do not like the size and extra weight to this mic. It is heavy when mounted in the stock desktop mount, but when I need portability this mic delivers and it is very well built
  • I was surprised by the well constructed and the weight of the microphone.
  • It's a little larger than I expected, but it's still totally a nice desk size.
  • It is just too heavy. More so, with the Radius Shock Mount, my Know Arm Stand (made for Yeti), just collapsed.
  • Slightly heavy weight

What customers say about "Features"
Blue Yeti USB Condenser Microphone
  • Simple to use and records great sound. I use it to record podcasts and the multiple recording patterns are a godsend. I love this mic.
  • There are manual switches for both gain and recording patterns - stereo, omni, cardioid, and bi-directional.
  • I bought this to use in a school music classroom to record rehearsals. I have used it for choir and band and the recording quality is great. I have also used it to record solo piano and vocal music.
  • It’s a very sensitive microphone, it picks up a lot of low and mid frequencies.
  • Great all around sound quality for a USB mic. great low end response as well as speaking voice. I was very happy with the quality of the recordings it produced.
  • Amount of background noise and static detracts from what should be professional quality.
  • Minimalist mic. This mic is for solo use. No real adjusting.

  • Has 4 different capsule modes to fit your recording needs that can be easily adjusted
