Head on over to Amazon and get the Blue Yeti USB mic in the Slate or Teal colors for just $89.99. This is a $40 drop off the regular price for these mics, and it's the first time we've seen these colors go on sale. There are other colors selling for around $100, which is also a decent price. Of course, none of these prices beat out GameStop's current deal on the Blackout Blue Yeti, which is down to $84.99 still. We shared that deal a couple days ago, but if you prefer to have a different color option you can pay just a couple bucks more and still save big.
The Blue Yeti is an incredibly easy mic to use, which makes it great for budding content creators. If you're looking to record your music or make a podcast or start streaming video games on Twitch, you should start with a Blue Yeti. For one thing, it's powered by a USB port so it's really just plug-and-play and works with Windows and Mac.
As a condenser mic it includes a tri-capsule array that works in just about any recording situation. Choose from four audio pickup patterns including cardioid, bidirectional, omnidirectional, and stereo. These patterns pick up audio from a specific direction, and it's important to choose the best pattern based on your setup and what you're trying to record. Cardioid, for example, is a very popular pattern if you're recording at your computer because it doesn't pickup audio from behind the mic, letting you keep recording even while you type on a keyboard or click your mouse.
Other features of the mic include gain control, a mute button, and zero-latency headphone monitoring. The Blue Yeti requires 64MB of RAM, which is a pretty simple prerequisite. It's also backed by a 3-year warranty.
