It's a decent mic, but I feel like better audio setups could be acquired with cheaper and more flexible configurations.
Would be a good plug-and-play office/conference mic.

1. Even set on cardiod mode, expect (a lot!) of audible noise from your keyboard and general computer sounds like fan noise. ('Workarounds' to get rid of this are really tedious, mostly involving 'after-editing' being necessary, or installing interfaces for editing etc.) I am going to try a boom arm to hang the mic, to see if this helps. (Will report back.) My keyboard is not a loud one and using a recording head-set, almost no keyboard or computer noise gets picked up. I know that this is an open mic, so an entirely different beast, but ...
2. Reasonably quiet for recording otherwise, with warm, but crisp, clean and well-balanced sound. Nice!
3. Size - OK. (The non-nano Blue Yeti looks gigantic and clumsy compared to the nano!)
4. Sound settings - be aware of the following:
- There is no 'Gain' dial on this model. Online instructions you might find for the non-nano version of Blue Yeti (with 'Gain' dial) may be confusing and/or lead you into unnecessary complications as you work with the sound - expect to find lots of contradictory advice on YouTube, for example.
- On Windows - advise that you take the time to learn how to tweak the sound through the main Control Panel before trying anything more complex.
- The mic will not work without monitor earphones or earbuds plugged into the 3.5mm on the body of the mic itself. So if you just want to simply record your voice into the computer without needing to monitor it, and without being online etc ... you'll still need to have earphones/earbuds plugged in. (For most normal use, you don't really need to monitor, so I'm not sure how useful this is, at all.)
- Consider installing OBS software if you'll be using the mic for voice-over or live streaming. - it will give you visible and accessible 'tweak controls' while you're working.
- BEWARE 'Blue Sherpa' (Beta version), available from the Blue website as a free download - ostensibly for tweaking mic sound. Had lots of problems with it not recognising the mic, and it may have been responsible for a bizarre computer fault where PC randomly went into 'sleep' mode. This fault did not recur once I'd uninstalled 'Blue Sherpa'.
Update: Boom arm did not really help control keyboard noise, to my disappointment. The shock-mount was way too small (HAUEA).
Conclusion: To really get the best from this mic, for my purposes, I'd probably have to invest another £100 or so, to get a branded shock-mount and boom arm. Not sure it's worth it...
When the first one arrived I could tell that it was refurbished. There was hair BENEATH the sticker and it was very poorly placed NEXT TO the one that was removed, how could I tell? I could still see the residue the original left. Once I took it out of the packaging, the mic was scuffed. It worked for about a second before the software BLUE TELL YOU TO DOWNLOAD! stated it needed to update the mic before I could use the software. The update failed as it couldn't connect to the server and instead of restoring the mic out of update mode it BRICKED it. Making it useless.
Okay at this point you might be thinking that it was a faulty mic. I did too, Amazon's lovely tech support sent a replacement.
AGAIN it was a poor refurbish job. Skipping forward. I plugged the mic in, Blue Sherpa told me that it needed to update the mic and BOOM same again IT BRICKED THIS MIC AS WELL. My advice to anyone would be to go with anyone else, literally anyone other than Blue. On another note, I attempted to contact them for support and they just ignored me. I even called them (They only have a US number by the way.) and they refused to help, they said to just get a refund.
Amazon to the rescue again and offered to refund me as soon as they receive the mic.
I also have pictures of the packaging that I can provide, if anyone wants to see how bad they are at packing.
DON'T buy Blue products, DON'T try and contact Blue tech support, BUY any other mic that is not from Blue.
Blue clearly don't care about the product or the customer.
Das Mikrofon galt als Weihnachtsgeschenk für meine kleine Schwester und sollte so natürlich sofort funktionieren. Ähnlich wird das Produkt auch beworben, Stecker rein und los geht es, so zumindest die Beschreibung. Doch gab es dicke Probleme mit dem Empfangen des Soundes. Beim Monitoring (Abhören über die eingebaute Klinke) kam bei uns kein Sound an und wir mussten diesen über extra angebaute Lautsprecher wiedergeben. Also ging die Ware nach einer Woche rumprobieren wieder zurück.
Da ich im Glauben war, dies sei wohl ein typischer Warehouse-Fehler, bestellte ich diesmal ein nagelneues Exemplar und hatte genau den gleichen Fehler wieder und wurde misstrauisch. Nachdem erste Suchergebnisse ins leere führten, bin ich in einem englischen Forum fündig geworden und erhielt dort den Tipp, meinen Systemsound einmal von 48.000 Hz (Standard) auf 44.100 Hz zu stellen und siehe da, alles funktioniert einwandfrei und OHNE Zusatzsoftware. Wieso genau die Hz Rate dabei eine Rolle spielt, kann ich leider nicht sagen, jedoch musste dieser Schritt getan werden um überhaupt Sound zu erhalten. Hoffe ich kann hiermit vielen Leuten helfen, die ähnliche Probleme mit dem Mikrofon aufweisen!
Negatives are that the microphone has very little adjustment on the boom arm, there is no way to angle it exactly as you want unless mounted directly 90 degrees from your face. Also, it is a little unfortunate that the volume button on the microphone is for headphones as I have studio headphones that are wired into an amplifier instead so it is not used at all. Finally, the mute button is often hard to press resulting in the mic picking up noise and that being very loud for anyone on the other end.
This microphone is not intended for studio use and is good for YouTube voice overs, gaming, streaming, Skype, discord and other social media however would struggle as a podcast mic or for recording vocals.
Hope that helps.
