One note, the customer support for Blue is miserable. They have a lot of gatekeepers to go through before you get to someone who can actually help you. The first step in customer service is a really, really, REALLY dumb email testing function where they make you basically switch your microphone on and off and delete, download, upload any software, ONE EMAIL AT A TIME. I spent about 4 hours with support before I finally got incredibly mad at which point the rep submitted a ticket and I had to wait another 2 days for servce. I am giving 3 stars here for the suppporrt not the product. Product is great and good value for money but the support is lousy and will make you crazy. Buyer beware!
I gave 4 stars for gaming and voice recognition, and 2 stars for sound quality, mostly because of the recording part.
If you use it for general use, such as online chatting or skype...etc. Maybe you should consider to get the Blue snowball microphone instead, it works well.
For recording music, I think you should get the professional version of this. I don't know why they have this and a professional version... They should just have the professional version because it is useless that its sound quality is not as good as the professional version and for general use, Blue snowball is a better option because it is cheaper and also offer good quality in general use.
I use one setting to record videos and another (omni) to record class conversations. Just the presence of an official looking mic changes the classroom. The students love using the mic.
I let me eSports club use the mic when they stream their rocketleague matches and tutorials. They love using this mic. Without breaking the bank you get a professional mic with a really good compressor. The Yeti snowball is good as well, but I really love the quality of the Yeti Blue.
Great for educators and great for gaming.
anyway enough with the tips this mic will pick up on everything you do and I mean everything if you live in a noisy house/environment this mic isn't for you sure you can help reduce that by lowing ur gain completely but that simply wont be enough I recommend getting the hyper x mic it doesn't pick up a lot like this mic does and it sounds good but if you live alone and are in your own house this will be perfect choice.

I wasn't expecting studio quality for instrumental recording as I have nice mics/pre-amps for that, but it's a hassle to set up. But I was expecting it to be OK, and good enough for quick recordings. In particular, I expected the recording quality to be better than I get by just using my H4n Pro as a USB microphone (which is great as a field recorder, but has got piddly little microphones that are nowhere near as good as a decent condenser mic).
With that comparison in mind what I found was:
* The yeti has less noise (it's quite good in this regard)
* The sound from the Yeti is much less natural - it feels "processed" in some way
* It can't cope with certain sounds - I got distortion from recording fairly dense harmonies
I might have been able to put up with the slightly unnatural sound (though it was certainly disappointing). However, the distortion makes it unusable - it happened irrespective of the level on the microphone, and with near/distant positioning. It's currently gone back for a refund (fingers crossed).
My guess is that there's a lot of processing going on inside the mic that makes hit highly tailored for voice, and that negatively impacts anything else. Obviously it is primarily marketed for voice (where it may be fine, or even good - though probably you could get a cheaper mic and do your own adjustments), but it does also claim to give studio quality instrumental recording too, which (even if taken with a pinch of salt) it definitely does not.
bought a cheap mic arm as well which i highly advise. checked a lot of reviews if a yeti is placed on the desk it will pick up all the bumps etc so for sure buy a mic boom arm. mine cost 12 pounds and its perfect.
i no longer sound like a jet engine and i managed to get it for cheap - 5 stars from me.
I havent fiddled around with it quite enough yet, but I can't help but feel although I like the mic, that you could get just as good with a cheaper microphone.
In the end I found the UK Sales Manager on LinkedIn and he did assist (credit to him) but even when he encouraged the Support team to respond, I got one email with various questions (which I responded to) and nothing else for days....
Personally, Id avoid on the lack of Support
