    Blue Yeti reviews

    Yeti Pro USB & XLR Microphone is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mic! The Answer to it all... Full time music teacher, and this is just one elegant solution. I've recorded live to two-track for 20 years, and typically have a complicated set-up, 2 Neumann's, tube mic-pre, to firewire interface. Worked OK at my old location (just moved to larger space). Yeti Pro is quiet, great on Skype, and just keeps things simpler for when I need to record on the fly and keep things simple. I like to mix down from 24/176.4, and it sure is nice to have something this elegant for the job. Probably saving me four hours a week of fussing around (when all I want to do is create some content!). Nice job Blue (this is my first Blue mic).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Delightful My wife and I picked this microphone up to do some podcasting and theatrical sound design. It's a bit heavy, but it's a dream to use: we just plug it into a laptop and we have a portable recording studio. The sound quality is better than anything we've owned before. I've used some professional microphones before, but this is the first one I've owned. The bidirectional setting is particularly useful--sounds from in front and in back of the mic pick up loud and clear, but computer fans and meowing cats to either side are nigh-inaudible in the recording. I'd say this is the best microphone you can get in this price range.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Quality for the price! I use this microphone for podcasting, as well as recording narration (and even the occasional line of ADR). I still can't believe how good it sounds - especially the omni-directional mode, which we use for podcasting. I don't understand how it manages to capture such clear sound despite some people being across the room. My only complaint is that the stereo XLR breakout cable is WAY too short, essentially requiring the use of an additional XLR cable. This is a perfect mic for newbies, and anyone with a DIY home studio.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low gain issue in USB mode Not sure why more people haven't mentioned this, but this mic has very low gain in USB mode. You have to turn the gain all the way up on the mic, and in your software to get useable sound. This is a known issue on The Yeti Pro, that the original Yeti USB mic does not have. The Yeti Pro also has driver issues in Windows 7, that can cause various problems, stuttering, drop outs, and high latency. As far as I know Blue has not addressed these problems. If I hadn't gone beyond 30 days I would return this. If I can't get good results with the mic in analog mode, I'll sell it. From reading other reviews around the net The Yeti USB, the original mic, has good gain levels, and is usually plug and play. Wish I'd bought that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great mic, odd size The microphone itself is a great tool - well built, solid. The vintage styling makes a great visual addition to a small studio. Sound is great, especially when run through XLR output to the Apogee Digital ONE. However, the mic itself is so fat that no standard shock mounts fit it, and I am sad to say that the shock mount made by Blue (the RADIUS) is just awful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the best yet(i) I got the thing, and it didn't work. Some kind of USB conflict. Turns out, after 2 weeks of tearing my hair out, that it NEEDS not to be in a USB 3.0 port. That was the problem. And there was no USB 3.0 chip set on the horizon. But tech support was compassionate and determined to make it right for me. I highly recommend these people and this mic.(I literally 'found' a hidden USB 2.0 on my laptop the two weeks later!!)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't use 2 Yeti Pro Mics via USB @ once We've been using one of these Mic's were I work for some time. It's a great USB mic, but when we purchased a second we discovered that you can not use 2 mic's at the same time via USB. I spoke with customer support at Blue and found that it is not possible at all to use 2 Yeti Pro Mic's via USB at the same time on a Mac because the mic's all use the same chip inside so the computer will only recognize one at a time. I had to purchase an audio interface so I could plug both mic's in using the analog ports. So if you know you only need one mic then go ahead and pic up one of these, but if you're planning to plug in two, don't pick up this mic, get an interface and two analog only mics.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok in USB, Absolutely wonderful thru xlr I only gave it a 4 cause of the usb. The usb preamp isnt the best. Its definitely enough for light background vocals for songs or for voice acting but not good for my uses with recording instruments. Running it xlr to my apogee ensemble though is fantastic. For the money this is the mic to get. 100% improvement over sound from the built in preamp. I own 4. I also own a few shure's, other blue's, and a couple of mxl's. The yeti pro and shure SM7 are my go to mic's. All the capsules in it are wonderful at what they do as long as you have it set up properly for what your wanting to record.
