This mic is by far the best one I've used, and even my father (who worked in radio for a number of years) says that this mic is of wonderful quality, and that he loves how it sounds. Its size and weight are wonderful, and the equipment that comes with it functions like a charm. I do not regret this purchase at all!
We purchased this microphone to records some training videos because my webcam mike and the headset boom mike just were not performing well. This mike picks up everything and the sound quality is awesome. There are 4 microphone settings that work for different situations, a microphone gain control, a headphone jack and volume control so you can listen to what is being heard in real time. The only problem is that it picks up everything, noise from the computer fan, vibrations from the work surface it is on. So you will need to isolate the mike somehow. I moved the pc to under the desk and use a piece of memory foam to isolate the mike. It works better than I expected. The sound screen is a little hard to mount as it made for a round mike stand and I don't notice much of a difference (but that could be a good thing).
This product is amazing, the microphone has four different recording patterns, adjustable mic levels, the mute feature, and its USB so it wont be a problem getting it hooked up to you pc or mac. Honestly, i love the sound im getting from the Yeti package. It sounds like im really in the recording studio. When you get the Yeti, you get your moneys worth. Thanks Overstock.com
I bought this product many months ago and was blown away by the quality of the recordings this microphone produced. Its 3 capsule condenser array allows for four polar patterns to be available thus helping you get 4 microphones in one - Cardioid (unidirectional), Omnidirectional (360 degree sound capture), Stereo (Left, Center, Right Channel sound capture) and Bidirectional (for interviews, podcasts, etc). Awesome product for the price. Please read my detailed review at ****blogspot dot com (search for Blue Yeti)
