Blue Microphones Yeti Pro USB Condenser Microphone
The Yeti Pro is the world's first USB microphone combining 24-bit/192 kHz digital recording resolution with analog XLR output. Featuring three custom condenser capsules and four different pattern settings, the Yeti Pro can capture digital audio with up to four times the clarity found on CDs. Plus, the Yeti Pro features a cutting-edge A-D converter chip and separate analog circuit path for use with professional studio mixers and preamps.
You also get a built-in headphone amplifier for zero-latency monitoring, and direct controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, mute, and microphone gain. So whether you record at home, in a studio (or in the Himalayas!), the Yeti Pro is your ultimate sound solution.
- Combines 24-bit/192 kHz digital recording with analog XLR output
- Advanced features with the simplicity of a plug-and-play USB microphone
- Built-in pattern with four polar pattern settings--stereo, cardioid, omnidirectional, and bidirectional
- Custom base includes a threaded mic stand with cable management
Four Different Pattern Modes for Versatile Recording
The stereo mode uses both the left and right channels, and is ideal for capturing a realistic, general sound image.
Well-suited for podcasts, vocals, or game streaming, cardioid mode records sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone. It delivers a rich, full-bodied sound.
Omnidirectional mode picks up sound equally from all directions. It’s best used in situations when you want to capture the ambience of 'being there'—like a live recording of a band's performance.
Bidirectional mode records from both the front and the rear of the microphone. It’s ideal for capturing the nuance of a musical instrument, or recording an interview between two people.

First off, the mic comes with some special drivers (win 7 in my case) you download from Blue's site and isn't straight plug-n-play like the original Yeti; I expected that from the description. What I didn't expect is that it wouldn't work with a lot of software once the drivers were up-and-running. I managed to get it to work in audacity and other things where you can adjust the sample rate in the application.. but stuff like steam or my webcam just don't work with it and sometimes it causes them to crash when you try. It got to be pretty frustrating discovering the amount of stuff it wouldn't actually work with.
The volume knob.. I don't know why they changed it, but its not the knob you'll see on the box or in the amazon picture. Its an infinite knob, it never stops turning even though at some unknown point you do hit max volume.. I don't know who thought of this but it irks me that I can never tell if its really all the way up or down.
The mute button is now brighter and the blinking when you are muted is a bit more aggressive.. I suppose that is good if you forget to unmute often, but I tend to mute whenever i'm not using the mic and the bright fast blinking grated on my nerves.
The audio quality in 24/192k is crisper and colder than the regular Yeti. There is a definite sense of fidelity, but it doesn't have any of the warm radio-esque quality of the original.
XLR works well, but you wont have access to the volume, monitor line or mute on the mic. Volume/monitor isn't as much of an issue since presumably you'll have an interface or a mixer of some kind, but I always found the mute handy. The XLR y-cable that came with the Yeti Pro is nice, but you will need to order actual cables since the Y cable is under a foot long. Its also worth noting that the mic seems WAY more sensitive in XLR mode than in USB/digital mode. Make sure you have all your volume/gain down before plugging it in or you will get a horrible feedback loop (just a good practice in general anyway).
Build quality is excellent, its one big hunk of metal, but don't ever expect to open it up and repair it yourself.
The monitor line out provides a great delay-free way of being able to hear what is getting recorded, but on the Yeti Pro (not really the regular Yeti) it doesn't actually match with what gets recorded. I hear a lot of ambient noise in the monitor line on the Yeti Pro, fans, AC, typing for example. So I turn the gain down and listen to the recording later and its fairly clean.. I hear a lot of noise in the monitor but get a pretty clean recording. I suppose its good that the noise didn't make it in but it would be nice if the monitor actually gave you some idea of what the recording would sound like. These are actual noises in the environment its picking up strongly in the monitor but not in the recording, for general electronic noise you'll probably need to also get yourself a ground loop isolator.
Blue has great sound quality in both the regular Yeti and the Yeti Pro, the pro, in my opinion does have a crisper sound, but for a lot of things (say YouTube or other sources that will down-sample you) its not going to matter much and you may come out sounding worse than if you used a regular Yeti. Don't get this if you just want to upgrade for upgrade's sake, because even with a definite need (say you want/need to move to XLR) it has a lot of disadvantages to a regular Yeti.
I ended up being pretty unhappy with it unfortunately. You end up paying for a lot of extra interface stuff you wont need if you use XLR and a separate interface, and if you just use USB the cons just outweigh the pros for me, especially considering how much more it costs.
Those were the words I spoke when I tried this out for the first time at home. I am not an audiophile and am new to music recording, but I wanted to get prosumer-level quality equipment, and decided on this microphone. I've been in a proper studio so I have an idea of what a studio setup should record and sound like.
Getting this microphone is the equivalent to getting your very first DSLR digital camera (for those that started with film). The transition from film to digital was mind-blowing. Not only could you instantly see what the shutter picked up, you could also learn what you did right or wrong at that very moment, and you quickly adjusted settings and became better because of it. This microphone is equivalent to that experience. The keyword here is *instant*. You will be able to figure out how to self-adjust your voice, instantly.
You've maybe used a cheap computer microphone, or a webcam/phone microphone before, but jumping to this is a huge step forward. You are able to connect headphones to the microphone (this is key, so get some quality over-ear headphones), which allows you to *instantly* hear what you sound like. Don't be afraid of your voice! Learn how to control it. Now you can play around with your voice to come across exactly how you want.
Some of you may be professionals, some may want to be professional, this microphone will help towards your journey. Honestly, I was having so much fun using this, I was reading everything online into the microphone because it was, just, so, fun. For anyone that wants to get into voice-overs, podcast recording, or voice acting, this is a step in the right direction. Get one today! Recommended.
