The Blue Yeti USB Desktop Tracking Optimizer Kit from B&H provides you with all the tools to create excellent sounding Podcasts, voice-overs and vocal recordings.
The kit includes the Yeti USB mic, Blue's Pop filter and a reflection filter. The video below demonstrates how to integrate the Pop with the Yeti. Then just connect the USB cable, place the Voxguard behind the mic and voilà! You're ready to record.
Blue Yeti USB Microphone (Silver)
Employing a tri-capsule design that provides you with a variety of selectable polar patterns for flexibility in recording, the silver Yeti USB Microphone from Blue is capable of capturing your audio in up to 16-bit/48 kHz resolution. Depending on your sound source, you can select between stereo, cardioid, omnidirectional, or bi-directional polar patterns for optimal results.
The mic has an integrated headphone amp with an independent gain control for latency-free monitoring. Microphone gain control as well as an instant mute function are available right on the device itself, while the included stand allows for pivoting in a variety of angles for ideal placement, with the added functionality of folding the mic down for storage and transport. The Yeti is Mac and Windows compatible, and includes a USB cable.
Yeti features 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, 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 3.5mm headphone jack and allows you to listen to what you're recording in real-time, without latency delay. 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
Designed for Simplified Recording
Yeti doesn't mind getting pushed around, it lets you adjust and pivot the microphone in relation to the sound source. 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 portability, or removed completely from its base for mounting directly on a mic stand
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. Yeti offers driver-free operation

Auray RF-5P-B Reflection Filter (Metal)
The RF-5P-B Reflection Filter from Auray is designed to improve the quality of voice recordings captured in your home studio, rehearsal studio or other untreated acoustic environment by absorbing and isolating the microphone from unwanted ambient reflections. By absorbing and diffusing these reflections, the RF-5P-B creates a closer and dryer sound that allows more control over the vocals. It can also be used for other applications such as recording an acoustic guitar or an electric guitar cabinet.
Five punched metal panels and a pyramidal, acoustic foam lining filter ambient noise and help prevent sound from reflecting back into the microphone. The two outermost panels are adjustable, allowing you to control how dry your
recording will be.
Whether it's a home studio or a rehearsal studio, for podcasting or broadcasting, the RF-5P-B Reflection Filter is designed to provide a portable solution for improved acoustic isolation.
Three Different Mounting Options
Threaded socket on the bottom can be mounted to a standard microphone stand, or the clamps on the back can be mounted to the shaft of a microphone stand with a boom arm. Also comes with non-slip feet for tabletop use
Blue The Pop - Universal Wire Mesh Windscreen
"The Pop" by Blue is a universal windscreen that features sturdy wire mesh construction. It provides sufficient protection against noise caused by sibilance and plosive "p" and "b" sounds.
With slight modification, The Pop can also be mounted to the frame of a Yeti or Yeti Pro. Please see the following video for details.
