Professional-quality audio that's still beginner-friendly

If you've watched a video, a live stream, or listened to a podcast online in recent years, there's a good chance at least one of the content creators was using a Blue Yeti USB condenser microphone. The Yeti microphone utilizes a triple condenser can array to record audio, and users can select between cardioid, bidirectional, omnidirectional, and stereo patterns using Blue VOICE software. All that power is packed into a sleek metal casing with a silver finish and topped off with a knob to adjust the gain setting.

Because of its budget-friendly price point and crisp, clean audio recording, the Blue Yeti has dominated the audioscape for content creators. With plug-and-play USB support and easy-to-customize settings, it is undeniably user-friendly. The Yeti is accessible for beginners, but still manages to be flexible enough that even more advanced creators can benefit from the high-quality sound. 

There are additional colorways available for this line of Yeti microphones, but at the time of writing this, only the silver model is marked down to the $89 price tag. The Blue Yeti includes an adjustable stand out of the box, but it is also compatible with boom arms. You will want to check that the boom arm can support the Yeti's weight, as the Yeti tips the scales at 3.2 pounds.

The Blue Yeti is an older model microphone, and Logitech has retired the Blue brand since it acquired the company in 2018. The company announced two new Yeti microphones at the end of 2023.
