Gotta dock a star for Blue's customer service. It took a full week before they replied back to me with a return authorization and they won't even send me a mailing label. I have to eat the shipping cost! I also have to dock another star because they "inadvertently" let me know this was a B-Stock when I registered the serial no. with them! Blue Microphones is selling B-Stock as if they were brand new on their Amazon store! Something was wrong with this microphone to begin with. No wonder it died in less than 7 months with hardly any use at all.
I'm shipping it back at my expense and hope they will honor the warranty. But from my recent experiences with Blue microphones I can't recommend them. Wouldn't buy from Blue again.
In short, they are incompetent thieves. This is pathetic. Avoid this company like the plague.
The Yeti, on the other hand, is a very high fidelity microphone, it has tunable directionality, and maintains balance when even significantly off axis. I set it on my desk and can dictate with the best fidelity and accuracy I have ever experienced with Dragon. Dragon now is actually useful. And...it looks way cool on my desk!
It's easy to set up, merely connect the included cable into both the microphone and usb port on your PC. The instructions are very clear and briefly describes the different modes the microphone has. What I really like about it is that it also tells you what the different modes are recommended for. the "omni-directional" mode is recommended for instrumental recording, or group singing, etc etc. It is very friendly towards beginners, especially me since this is my first dedicated microphone.
Since you now have a dedicated microphone, why need your gaming headset right? The microphone even has a headphone jack so you can throw away that $100 headset and use your apple earbuds or whatever 3.5mm earphone you use. On the front of the microphone there is a dedicated volume knob and a mute button that flashes red, indicating that it is muted. On the back there is the knob for switching between the different modes the microphone can be as well as a knob to turn up or down how loud the microphone projects the sound it records. "Gains" is what the knob is labeled.
Microphone itself is very well made. Heavy steel (I think its steel?) as a base and a lighter, but still metal body. There are knobs for you to adjust the angle of the microphone, or even unscrew the base so that you can mount on an elevated mount.
The quality of the microphone is superb. It pretty much picks up everything. From mechanical keyboard clicks to you swallowing just a bit loudly. Very very excellent.
So in all, was the 130ish dollars I spent on the product worth it? Yes. Considering how well the microphone sounds and the fact that I will be using this when I stream on twitch and record commentary for youtube videos, I feel like this is a very good investment this should probably last me for a couple of years.

Einziges Manko meiner Meinung nach sind die Schrauben mit denen das Mikro am Fuß befestigt ist. Diese werden von Zeit zu Zeit locker und man muss sie nachdrehen.
Falls Gesang oder Instrumente damit aufgenommen werden würde ich auch einen Popschutz empfehlen inclusive Mikroarm, da man sonst gern mal Tischgeräusche oder ähnliches mit aufnimmt.
Zum Mikro selbst. Es verfügt über 4Modi', welche ich in den Anhang posten werde :) Ich verwende nur den Cardioid Modus zum Singen und Gamen (TS) - da bin ich sehr zufrieden mit. Die anderen Modi habe ich nicht wirklich getestet.
Weiters gibt es ein Poti mit dem sich der Gain verstellen lässt und das ganze ist auf höhster Stufe dann wirklich sehr empfindlich. Habe das Mikro neben meinem Monitor alos ca 1m weg von meinem Mund und da reichts wenn der Gains ganz niedrig eingestellt ist. Im Teamspeak perfekte Qualität und bei Gesangaufnahmen stelle ich das Mikro etwa 50cm von mir weg.
Für den Hobbygebrauch wirklich zu empfehlen. Wer was professionelles braucht sollte lieber nach XLR Mikros mit passender Peripherie Ausschau halten, jedoch bewegt man sich dann in einer anderen Preisklasse.
Für unter 150€ könnte ich nur noch das USB Mikro von Rode empfehlen. Dieses gefiel mir im Direktvergleich für Sprache besser für Instrumentaufnahmen schlechter. (Rode klarer aber gesamte Klangfarbe etwas zu hoch und daher hört sich für mich das Yeti gesamt besser an - Vorallem bei niederfrequenten Tönen)
Falls die Rezession für dich nützlich war, kannst du gerne ein "Nützlich" dalassen :-D
The recordings i did with my blue yeti had no sound captured at all !!! I looked the problem up on internet and most of the comments suggested that my mic must be defective. I became so dejected :( But i decided to look into the settings and it turned out that actually the problem was just because of a few basic settings. To summarize it:
1) I found that my laptop sets yeti as default "playback" and recording device automatically. So basically after recording i was trying to listen the recording from my laptop's speaker when actually i was supposed to listen it through a headphone plugged into yeti itself. When i did just that i found that the recordings were not soundless at all :) :) :) Phew! I am so relieved.
The recordings play fine via the computer's speaker 'after' plugging out yeti from the laptop because it again sets computer's speaker as default playback device ( and that's why it's audible from the normal computer speaker once the yeti is out).
2)Now to listen the recordings even when yeti is plugged in the computer i,
- went to computer's sound control panel
- set computer's speaker as default playback device
- AND THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVED :)
I looked up at a lot of websites but none suggested that this simple thing could be the problem :)
So If anyeone else is facing the same difficulty as me, you can try out what i did. I hope it helps:)
By the way I am super happy with the sound quality i am getting with yeti :) :)
CARDIOID MODE - This mode records sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone.
STEREO MODE - Uses both the left and right channels to capture more realistic sound range.
OMNIDIRECTIONAL MODE - Picks up sound equally from all around the mic (best for live recordings around a table etc)
BIDIRECTIONAL - Records from both the front and rear of the microphone—good for recording a duet or a two-person interview.
I use this mic attached to a AKORD Professional Adjustable Microphone Fold and pop filter.
This does offer a high quality sound recording but if you wanted to take things to the next level you'd probably want invest in a mic with an XLR connection and mixer combo. However if you want something easy to setup/use with a high level of recording quality then Blue Yeti is highly recommended. As a side note I've been using this for 3 years now and its still going strong!
Il en est ravi. Ce n'est pas un pro mais il est impressionné par la qualité et la sensibilité de ce produit. Il le trouve parfait.
Une fonction que mon fils apprécie particulièrement, c'est la possibilité de brancher dessus un casque pour entendre le playback pendant l'enregistrement.
Attention tout de même, il est relativement lourd et volumineux. Il sera difficile de la camoufler. Cependant, étant donné le réglage du gain et la sensibilité, il est possible de le mettre assez loin et de ne pas l'avoir au milieu.
Je le recommande (mon fils aussi).

Unfortunately the ARM I PURCHASED IS THE ONE SAID "FREQUENTLY BOUGHT TOGETHER" AND EVEN IT SAYS THAT IT'S NOT SUITABLE FOR THE YETI!
This resulted in me easily overtightening the base of the arm and wrecking it. I only just went back through that documentation that indicates very clearly that it's not appropriate. Amazon should not be linking these two products.
