Pros: NA at this time
Plus -- Stellar Warranty procedure
Cons: ***Warning: Known defect per google search -- USB amp does not work correctly-- google "How to fix Blue Yeti Static" Wish I would have known ahead of time
Extreme static and clipped sound in headphones out of the box. Was a gift for my daughter so was not opened upon delivery, pre-purchased.
Powered Belkin Hub solution for static does nothing.
Yeti support says I must ship back at my cost after requiring me to replace cables, uninstall/reinstall drivers etc. So added Total costs to Item:
$16 for powered Hub
$5 for new cable
many hours of my life wasted on defect - -priceless
Pros: great buy for the money
many mic pickup modes - great for meetings with 360 degree pickup
USB and XLR
plug and play on a mac
Overall Review: really nice sounding for the money, great for podcasts, looks killer
easy install on a mac, most people do audio and picture on macs
Pros: Trendy. Heavy. Vintage.
Cons: Incredibly, the driver installation halts at a point when the microphone is not recognized via USB. I have tried everything, including wiping the prior driver installations, connecting to a USB 2.0 and then USB 3.0, front panel, back panel -- everything. I've tried pointing the installation to a specific directory, and it still refuses to continue installing. That makes this product completely useless as a USB microphone, and at that, a way overpriced analog XLR microphone. Extremely disappointed with Blue's terrible customer service and online support.
Pros: + Solid construction
+ includes required mini usb cable and extra XLR stereo splitter
+ includes base for desktop use
Cons: -driver compatibility issues
-headphone volume knob is cheesy, no indicator for current level
-can't run digital and analog signal at same time
-price $249 + $50 isolation mount = $300
Overall Review: After downloading the "windows 8" software from the Blue website, I was unable to get the driver to finish the installation. The installation would hang up towards the end and say the device isn't connected and to please reconnect device. The red mute light was solid red so the device was powered... tried running the windows 7 driver in compatibility mode with the same fail results
Pros: Sounded amazing, coming from the C920 compared to this is worlds apart. Does a great job of blocking back ground noise if you are speaking close to the mic, and drivers are easy to install. The Build quality is great bought a separate mic pop filter and that sagged everyday, kinda wish it came with one like some other mics but it's not a huge deal
Cons: Broke after 2 months, just stopped picking up a signal. RMA'ed it and this process has taken about a month after they got my mic I didn't get a response until a week later and once they verified that it was faulty, they haven't sent me a e-mail confirming the replacement unit shipping so...
Overall Review: Personally this is huge since I the mic to stream games, with it breaking during launch week of new game titles and slow RMA process turned an amazing experience to meh
Pros: + Yeti Pro users fixed the driver issue
Cons: - provided mini usb cable doesnt work
- poor tech support
Overall Review: buy a pop filter
works great with Audacity
works great with teamspeak, Ventrillo, Skype, etc
