Great for the price and multi use!
I originally bought my Blue Yeti as a microphone to use when streaming games on twitch.tv. As I started getting into producing I really wanted to start singing and recording some of my own lyrics. I then remembered that I had the yeti on my gaming computer and quickly brought it over to my MacBook Pro. This thing is great! Pretty good quality recordings and does great for an intro level setup. I could have bought something else but honestly this is all I need!
This thing is rad.
People always talk smack about USB mics but this mic is amazing. I record stuff and people be like, "Yo. What studio you go to? This is DOPE!" Its like 4 mics in one and all of them suit a purpose and suit it well. If you've tried one and didn't like it, you probably did it wrong.
Very good mic, probably best USB out there
Got this microphone for Christmas. With my volume full, gain just over halfway to the right and cardioid mode on, this microphone sounded great. It's got a clean, crisp perfection and it's perfect for singing, podcasts, and pretty much anything you throw at it. I got the Whiteout of only £115 so it's very affordable aswell.
Good for video making and conversation
Nice mic if you want to record your voice (for youtube videos for example) with something better than your usual integrated laptop microphone. I won't recommand it for serious voice recording or music production cause it only has USB and 3.5mm Headphones Jack outputs and the sound quality wont reach something like an electrostatic microphone. If it is your only solution for music recording it can do the job but don't expect crisp audio out of it.
Short span and useful before pro audio.
This was my main driver for my mic until it broke down due to an issue I'm assuming to have been with the USB connector. Switching from cable to cable didn't help, and I had to switch to a headset mic (before my GSP 600), until I got into the realm of pro audio. At least for me, this and other USB mics become obsolete once you enter the realm of pro audio.
I got this mic for Christmas, it's a dark blue colored version. Works well with instruments, meaning that it was more easy to record my piano, or amp, or my voice without using my bad phone mic! The mic barely clips with Audacity, I am still thinking about getting a Shure microphone, since that's more of a real instrument mic. But this will do!
Excellent for Podcast, Youtube and related.
As must as I wish this was XLR, you must admit it has amazing quality for the price! I love this microphone, and I probably won't switch it for a long time! But, I would rather spend a little more money on an XLR microphone and a simple mixer if you are starting out.
Good USB mic for beginners.
The Blue Yeti is almost a standard for every Youtuber. Everyone who has seen Let's Plays or any animators, or even voice actors and podcasters has either seen one or used one before, and for good reason. At the price point, you can get better sound, but it has so many features that it's a hard one to pass up.
One thing I don't like about it is the fact that no matter how well you acoustically treat your room, it'll still have a mysterious reverb problem. There's definitely better out there, but this gets my safe recommendation that everyone should at least try it.
