5 out of 5 eggsUPDATED REVIEW

Pros: -Good Quality Audio
-Sensitive IF you want it to be

Cons: After the RMA, nothing.

Other Thoughts: My first mic worked for about 5 minutes, then stopped, so I RMA'd it. No eggs off for that since the review is for a working mic, and most of the mics they ship out work.

People that complain about it being too sensitive clearly don't know how to set it up properly. If you leave the input levels of the microphone at 100% in whatever program you use then you're going to pick up EVERYTHING. So turn the input levels down before you rate this thing at one egg! This microphone is a beast.

5 out of 5 eggsBig, Strong, Beautiful

Pros: -Easy to install and use.
-Completely solid and sturdy.
-4 different directional settings to choose from with just the twist of a dial.
-easy to use mute button
-headphones port and headphones volume control on the mic itself.
-beautiful and silver.

Honestly I have never purchased an expensive microphone before and for 120 bucks I am happy with this purchase. It is a nice mic. I sound clear, more than I ever have before. Hold it up close to your mouth and speak into it and you will fall in love with your own voice. Might want to pick up a filter if you speak close to it though as you do with all mics. Worth the price.

Cons: Not really a con but it's pretty heavy and thick. It has a spot on the bottom for you to screw into a regular mic stand but don't try to hold it like a regular mic, it is very thick.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked fine, then stopped working

Pros: I got the mic, unboxed it, and opened audacity to do some test recordings. I tried all of the different recording modes and it worked beautifully for about 5 minutes, then it stopped.

Cons: Stopped working randomly. Just completely. Nothing being recorded from the PC or the built in headphone port for vocal monitoring. Had to be RMA'd

Other Thoughts: I'm not going to give this a bad rating because it died, products are defective sometimes. My experience with the mic was great, and I would recommend it to my friends if they need a good mic.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost The Best Mic Ever

Pros: -High quality
-Pattern variety

Overall, the Blue Microphones Yeti is very much worth the price. The quality you will obtain with this mic is on the level of what you would hear directly from a studio. I also like how the Yeti comes with a variety of pattern options, even if I will mainly use one. I should note at this point, if you are planning on using the Yeti for gaming, in a basic bedroom, you will NEED to spend over 100USD on accessories to make it work. If you intend on mounting the Yeti to your desk, you will need a shock mount to cancel out the vibrations your desk will pick up. You will also need a pop filter to cancel out audio pops from your vocals. Additionally, if you are sitting near a wall, it is advised that you install acoustic foam on said wall, else your audio will bounce off the wall and distort your audio. Unlike gaming headsets, the Yeti picks up PURE sound. There is no internal noise cancelling or filtering, hence the need for additional parts. Simply put, the Yeti is made for people who know what they are doing.

Cons: -Size
-Insanely bright light

Overall, the Yeti will leave you flabbergasted at how large it is. I highly suggest you do a size comparison. From what I found, the Yeti is about a can and a half of 12 fl oz soda cans. That does NOT include the stand it comes on. The worst part about the Yeti is that there is a miniature sun in the form of a red LED, right on front of the mic that could blind a sight-impaired person from about 50 miles away. Ok, fine, it's not that bad, but it's still pretty horrible.

Other Thoughts: Blue Microphones really needs to reduce the brightness of that red LED for future Yetis. You'll feel like you're getting laser eye surgery if you look directly into the dang thing.
