Blue Yeti Overview

The blackout Blue Yeti USB Microphone and ATH-M30x Headphone Kit from B&H includes the Yeti USB multi-pattern microphone, Audio-Technica ATH-M30x headphones, a mic stand, USB cable, a 1/4" screw-on adapter, and a carry pouch. This kit can be used to capture and monitor audio in 16-bit/48 kHz resolution when paired with a Mac or Windows computer. In addition, the mic allows you to select between stereo, cardioid, omnidirectional, or bi-directional polar patterns.

Blue Yeti USB Microphone (Blackout)

A simple, yet powerfully effective tool for content creators, the Blue Microphones Yeti is a USB mic offering a broadcast-quality sound, a rugged design, and multiple recording modes to suit your needs. The Yeti, offfered here in a blackout finish, has become a go-to mic for people who record podcasts, and who stream on YouTube, Twitch, Facebook Live, and other similar platforms.

The multiple mic modes allow virtually any kind of content creator to do their thing with precision and ease. Use the cardioid setting to reject off-axis noise, minimizing room tone even when speaking directly into the mic. If you're recording with one other guest, select the Bidirectional polar pattern; now, you can speak into the front, while the guest speaks into the back, and the sides of the mic will reject unwanted room noise. Choose omnidirectional to pickup audio all around the capsule, which is great for work that features multiple voices. Finally, a stereo mode is wonderful for ASMR content or for recording music. A desktop stand and a USB cable are included, as is a suite of VO!CE software FX to improve your sound.

Fits Your Needs

This mic is perfect for recording directly to computers, be they mac or windows systems. With the right, separately available adapters, you can also record with Android and iOS devices.

All the Control You Need, Built Right In

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. Also, 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.

3.5mm Headphone Jack with Latency-Free Monitoring

The mic has an integrated headphone amp with an independent gain control for latency-free monitoring. Simply plug your headphones into the mic's 3.5mm input, and you'll hear your broadcast-quality audio in all its glory.

Broadcast-Quality Digital Capture

The mic records audio at 16-bit / 48 kHz, giving you the broadcast standard for media playback. On the audio side, the tri-capsule design ensures that whatever mode you choose, the mic will pick up a clear and present sound.

Simple to Set Up

Just plug the Yeti into your computer's USB port with the included USB cable, select it as a device in your recording software, and you're ready to get to work. The Yeti runs off your device's power, so no need to plug it into a wall. With driver-free operation, you won't have to download pesky software to get it up and running.

VO!CE Software Included

Blue VO!CE software is included, giving you an array of high-quality vocal filters, FX, and samples to showcase your voice in the best light. You'll find the following FX on hand:

  • High-pass filter
  • Noise reduction filter
  • Expander/gate 
  • De-esser
  • Voice EQ
  • Compression
  • Limiter

Audio-Technica ATH-M30x Closed-Back Monitor Headphones (Black)

Merging acclaimed features of the M-Series headphones with a foldable, travel-friendly design, the black Audio-Technica ATH-M30x monitor headphones offer solid build quality and audio performance for studio-based production, location recording, and daily listening. Outfitted with 40mm dynamic drivers and an over-ear, closed-back design, the ATH-M30x headphones deliver enhanced midrange definition and wide bandwidth (15 Hz to 22 kHz) while isolating you from outside sounds.

Thanks to the 15° swiveling earcups, high-quality materials, and generous cushioning on the headband and earpads, the headphones are both durable and comfortable to wear. Exiting from the left earcup, the attached 9.8' cable reduces tangles and simplifies channel identification. The cable sports a gold-plated 3.5mm mini plug for use with mobile devices and computer soundcards, and a 1/4" screw-on adapter is included for easy hookup to audio interfaces, mixers, and stereo receivers. A carrying pouch is supplied with the ATH-M30x for convenient storage and transport of the headphones.

40mm Drivers

The ATH-M30x features 40mm dynamic drivers with rare earth (neodymium) magnets and CCAW (copper-clad aluminum wire) voice coils for quality sound reproduction at a competitive price point.

Tuned for Enhanced Midrange Definition

The drivers and headphone design work together to provide a sonic signature tuned for increased detailed and enhanced midrange definition. With a frequency response of 15 Hz to 22 kHz, the ATH-M30x can reproduce a full spectrum of tones.

Over-Ear, Sound-Isolating Design

The ATH-M30x utilizes a circumaural design that contours around the ears for excellent sound isolation in loud environments. This over-ear, closed-back style is optimal for reducing bleed and separating you from outside sounds.

15° Swiveling Earcups and Foldable Design

Equipped with 15° swiveling earcups, the ATH-M30x ensures a great fit. The earcups fold up to meet the headband, saving space during storage. A carrying pouch is supplied for protection and convenience while transporting the headphones.

Attached Single-Sided Cable

Keeping it simple and clean, the ATH-M30x incorporates an attached 9.8' cable that exits from the left side. This increases convenience and makes it easier to distinguish the different sides of the headphone.

3.5mm Plug and 1/4" Screw-On Adapter

The attached cable is terminated with a gold-plated 3.5mm TRS mini plug for easy hookup to mobile devices, MP3 players, and computer headphone jacks. A secure 1/4" screw-on adapter is included for compatibility connectivity with audio interfaces, mixers, and dedicated headphone amplifiers. Built-in strain relief on the 3.5mm mini plug reduces the likelihood of damaging the connection if the cable is pulled.

Solid Build Quality

Thanks to the high-quality materials used in the ATH-M30x, the headphones balance comfort and strength while delivering enhanced audio and effective isolation.

Blue Yeti Reviews

Solid Microphone

By Scott
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-30

I've used the blue yeti for a long time and decided to get another one. It's a solid microphone for podcasts, voice over, and gaming. It may not be as specialized and higher quality as XLR microphones but it still performs well.

Needs a banana for scale, this is not a little hand mike.

So far so good, sounds excellent as expected. I will likely need to put it on a box to elevate it, or get a boom mount. Installation was removing from packaging and plugging in the usb cable. Done. This review is taking longer to write than the installation. What surprised me though is that it's about twice the size I expected. I figured it was maybe an inch and a half wide, subconsciously extrapolating from smaller hand held mikes I've had previously. It's 2-1/2 wide at the screen, 2-3/4 on the main body. 11-1/4 or so tall. I've seen complaints that the stand is flimsy, but it sure isn't, it's pretty weighty and metal, not plastic, which is good. You do need to tighten the side screws to firm positioning up, but that's done with fingers. There's a threaded hole on the bottom that's about 1/2 wide, apparently you can get a 1/4-20 adapter for it. I'm guessing it'll screw into a mike stand, but I don't have one to check. Nice rubber bottom, anti-skid and won't mark your desk up. I'm pretty happy with it, the build quality is good, no complaints there. Using with a Mac, just showed up in preferences as a selection for both input and output (has a headset amp built in, 1/8 jack). Recorded a test video screen capture with voice over, no problem. The multiple patterns are nice, I haven't tried them all yet, but I'll probably just use the Cardoid/single person pattern mostly. Ideal speaking distance seems to be around a foot, but you can easily use it from a yard or more away. Has gain control that I didn't even need to turn up at all. All in all, it seems like a no-brainer. I see why the major reviews are pretty unanimous in recommending it.

I got this for voiceover work on some training materials I'm developing, and I expected it to be about half it's actual size. I thought it'd be about 1-1/2, it's closer to 2-3/4 or just about 3 really. The mount is metal and solid, much heavier than I thought, which is a good thing. I did have to make a stand to put it on to raise it to mouth level, so you may want to look at getting a Mic boom for it. Performance is basically so good that it just doesn't even matter anymore, for any normal use. It has a preamp that generally you don't even need. The multiple patterns are also great for the various typical uses you need, single person, interview/two people, omni etc. 1/2 thread mount in the bottom that you can adapt to 1/4-20 if you want, or just get a mic boom with a 1/2 thread and done.

how can i connect a usb yeti to an evo4?
Asked by: Steven
There's not much reason to use a USB mic to an audio interface since the USB mic already has an A/D converter inside it, which is the primary role of the audio interface. You should be just fine plugging it into your computer. If you prefer the preamp sound of your evo, you should buy an analog mic instead. You'll probably end up getting more bang for your buck too

question

WHAT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 16 BIT AND 24 BIT?
Asked by: Anonymous
24-bit audio offers more digital information which translates to a higher resolution signal and recording. In other words, depending upon the signal being recorded, the final results should sound better.
