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).
These mic's work best in smaller setting - produce a great deal of feedback if you travel a good distance away from the receiver. However, the overall quality for the price is great!
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)
