"Great for fun not for professional use. (Usb mic)"

Daan Vandermeeren | 3 August 2020 | Collection color: Black

  • Pros:
    Easy to use, no extra tech needed
  • Pros:
    Not too expensive
  • Pros:
    Useful options
  • Pros:
    Sound quality is fine
  • Pros:
    Very popular (brand name)
  • Con:
    Usb microphone
  • Con:
    Not that cheap either
  • Con:
    Sound quality is inferior to non-usb mics

I like the product because it's easy to use. If you need any information, it's easy to find because the microphone is so popular. But if you're looking for professional sound recording, you're not looking for a usb microphone. If you want to have fun recording audio without knowing too much about the tech behind it (for youtube, streaming or podcast) it's the perfect mic for you.

The sound quality is very good, as is the value for money. It's also extremely straightforward and easy to use.

Absolute aanrader. Aansluiten op je PC en gaan met de banaan

  • Pros:
    Gewoon inpluggen en gebruiken
  • Pros:
    Vier verschillende settings voor geluid
  • Pros:
    Ideale hoogte voor op bureauV
  • Pros:
    Volumeregeling en koptelefoon aansluiting
  • Con:
    Doos een beetje te krap om apparaat terug in te steken

Geweldige aanrader. Gewoon aansluiten op je PC via de USB kabel en de microfoon word meteen herkend. Je kan zo aan de slag en het geluid dat de micro tevoorschijn tovert is bijzonder helder, zeker gezien de prijscategorie van de Blue Yeti.

  • Pros:
    Switch between recording modes
  • Pros:
    Easy set-up

I got this product to record instructional videos with, and the sound quality is very high. Didn't take much setting up, just switching the recording mode to 'cardioid' to record one person, and my mac picked it up straight away. Build quality also great. Highly recommend using this with Audacity which is free recording software - it will help you cancel out the background noise which is a problem of high quality/high sensitivity mics.
