Audio quality

The audio quality of this microphone is undoubtedly good. The quality of the audio will significantly improve when you use it in combination with recommended accessories such as pop filter and windscreen. This means that you have great control over this microphone. Making a crisp and clear audio recording is very easy without dwelling in the complicated setting. One important note when making a good audio quality audio is the position of the microphone. Make sure to find your sweet spot using this Yeti microphone.

The design

The Yeti microphone is well-built with its desktop stand which allows you to swivel back and forth. On the back side, there are two knobs which are pattern knob and gain sound knob. On the bottom of the microphone, there is mini USB port and 3.55mm audio jack for headphones. The front side, you will have volume button and mute button which I found it very handy when you accidentally have to sneeze.

The only consideration of this Yeti microphone is the size and weight. Yes, for all the features that you get from this microphone, there is also a price that you have to pay: the actual price and the size. The microphone weights almost 1, 5 kg and heights 29.5 cm tall; even though it is not that heavy but it is definitely not something that you will carry around. No wonder the name of the microphone is Yeti because it is huge, literary.


If you consider Yeti microphone from the price, it is surely not for the hobbyist. But if you want something that value for money and high in quality, this huge microphone is certainly the one for you.
