Product Comparison: MXL 990 vs Blue Yeti
- It's also very nice looking, and has heavy aluminum construction.
- The weight and size made me feel like my studio had been upgraded.
- The size is perfect and it looks great.
- All and All the design and box it came in (foam with plastic around all the pieces) was impressive.
- This is a great buy for mics! the design is very technological, and i read up on condenser mics and found these are very very good for vocals.
- 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!
- The spider-mount is a plus for live recording and vibration suppresion, and also looks really neat.
- This mic is definitely sufficient for normal recording, especially if you run it through a vocal effects processor.
- I use this mic for podcast recording and it has been great.
- I have not used it for instrument recording, but it's a cardioid not an omni pattern so not ideal for acoustic guitar/strings anyway.
- It's a good inexpensive way to record vocals, but I find the sound a bit muddy, and often come back with eq to turn down some of the low-mid frequencies.
- 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.
- It’s a very sensitive microphone, it picks up a lot of low and mid frequencies.
- It also features a 3.5mm standard audio jack port which allows you to plug in earphones to get real time monitoring. I really like it.
- Amount of background noise and static detracts from what should be professional quality.
