Every time I do my set-up in the dark I have to make sure I plug the micro-usb cable in the right way as it is not reversible. Blue, please modify this product and release it with USB-C!!!!
Edit: Since I wrote this review, I have found quite a good number of microphones with USB-C: [As to mic recording quality, do your own research before purchase.]
1. Just now, I have discovered that AKG released a new Mic, AKG Lyra C44-USB, with all the features of Blue Yeti and arguably better sound quality.
2. Beyerdynamic Fox USB Condenser mic.
3. Elgato Wave:3
4. Rode NT-USB Mini
5. Comica STM-USB
6. JLab Audio Talk Pro
7. Thronmax Mdrill One Pro
8. Maono AU-903

Before I got the Blue Yeti X, I recorded on a Blue Yeti Blackout edition. The Blue Yeti X uses 4 capsules over the Blackout's 3. The Yeti X clearly records a warmer and crisper voice, but I find it drops a bit of the lower range in my voice. Some people have said the buttons to control gain and monitoring are cumbersome, but I didn't have that problem. I think the Blackout edition is easier to use (you just turn a couple of knobs), but the Yeti X has LED displays on the gain. You can tell if your clipping (going to red and distorting the sound) and adjust your gain on the fly. Like the Blackout, the Yeti X is very sensitive and I don't need to turn the gain up more than the second LED light. Otherwise, it would clip. By default, the Yeti X uses the cardioid pickup pattern. I think the Yeti X rejected off-pattern sound better than the Blackout edition.
Now for some complaints. The Blue Voice software isn't available for Macs, only Windows. This software would have been magnificent for mixing your output. I've listened to numerous examples with Low Soft Voice and Broadcast, and people sound great. This is unfortunate and it makes me NOT recommend the microphone for Mac users. My other quibble deals with the volume. I can only use the monitoring on the Yeti X to control the volume to my headphones. With the Blackout edition, I could use the Mac's control as well as the knob on the microphone.
Overall, the Blue Yeti X is an improvement over the Blue Yeti Blackout edition, but skip it as a Mac user. Until Blue and Logitech make the voice mixing software available, you won't get your money's worth. Stick to the Blue Yeti and Blue Yeti Pro for now.
After tinkering for a while I was able to get it to work. What ultimately worked was downloading G-Hub from the Logitech website. In addition and after this worked, Apple seems to have updated Catalina and listed fixes to the USB drives in the update. The microphone works *really* well.
Expensive products deserve rigorous engineering practices, there is little engineering rigor applied to this product.

Returned, ordered an arm and running it with a Samson Q7 into my audio interface with a software gate activated. Much better experience going this route.
The main problem is the cord that comes with it. Not only is it USB micro B, a connection type infamous for its lack of durability, the stock cable head's spring wears extremely fast and soon fall out of the port. It is very hard to replace due to the quality required to keep data transmission smooth (you will sound like a robot if using other cables).
So why the 1 star and why am I returning it after a week? There is a massive flaw. It is with the way they are using the micro USB with a THICK heavy cable. If you browse the Amazon reviews you will see people have brought this up as an issue. It is probably fine if you have it mounted on a boom. However, free-standing on the desk the cable literally will fall out with movement to your laptop or things nudging the cable. The cable hangs freely with no cord strain relief. This is super surprising considering the Yeti Nano, at half the price, has a slot at the bottom of the stand to loop your cable under the stand to give it some relief.
If you intend on using this mic standing, reconsider your purchase. It's going back to Amazon for me and I'm keeping the Nano instead. I rather give up some quality instead of getting disconnected all the time.
