Blue Yeti Microphone Review: Should You Get One?

The Blue Yeti microphone works great in many recording situations and offers a ton of useful features for the price.

The Blue Yeti USB microphone has been the most popular USB microphone in the last several years, but I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone.

In this Blue Yeti review, we’re going to take a look at all the features, sound quality, and let you know who it’s best for.

You’ll also get recommended accessories to make the Yeti even better.

Blue Yeti Features

Polar Patterns

One of the stand-out features of the Yeti is the ability to change polar patterns.

Blue uses a proprietary tri-capsule microphone array that allows you to switch between 4 different polar patterns, customizing how the Yeti picks up sound.

They are Cardioid, Omnidirectional, Bidirectional, and Stereo:

Cardioid Mode

Cardioid mode is the one that most people will use. It is perfect for podcasting, gaming, streaming, webinars, or calls – and focuses the pickup pattern to the front.

Omnidirectional Mode

Omnidirectional mode picks up sound from all directions equally. It will sound more distant, but is great for conference calls or other situations where sound quality isn’t critical but you need to record multiple people.


Bidirectional is great for interviews, although using one microphone is not going to be the best option.

If you’re regularly doing in-person interviews, I’d recommend looking into the 2 person kit here.


Stereo mode can be a good choice if you need clear separation of left and right channels – and will also work well for recording instruments, although cardioid is usually a better choice.

Headphone jack and volume control

No matter which USB mic you end up getting, make sure it has a headphone jack.

This allows you to monitor your recording or streaming without delays.

A nice touch with the Blue Yeti is that it has a headphone volume knob right on the front.

Gain control

Gain controls how sensitive the microphone is. This is controlled by a dial on the back.

Most USB microphones don’t include this and require you to adjust gain levels with software, which can difficult to do during a recording.

When people start getting loud, it’s nice to be able to quickly turn the gain down so you don’t peak and overload the mic. If that happens you can’t fix it with software later.

Mute button

The mute button is another nice feature not found on many other USB mics.

It also has a red LED that goes from solid when not muted to flashing when muted so you know which position it’s in at a glance.

USB Plug-n-play

You won’t need software or drivers to use the Blue Yeti. Just plug the included cable into a USB port, select it in your audio settings, and start recording.

Blue recently came out with software that lets you get updates and adjust settings (see Blue Sherpa below) but it’s optional.


The stand that comes with the Blue Yeti is nice and solid. It allows you to rotate the position of the mic, but since you should really be speaking from only a few inches away, I would skip the stand and get a boom arm or mic stand right away.

Check out the accessories toward the bottom of this review.

Size weight

It’s important to realize that the Yeti is a heavy microphone. Because of that, it won’t work with just any stand. Then add the weight of a shock mount and it’s no joke!

Blue Sherpa Software

Blue Sherpa is free desktop software that lets you update any of their USB mics, control settings such as gain and pickup patterns.

With the Yeti microphone, I was able to update firmware, control gain, monitoring volume, headphone volume, and mute:

Final Thoughts

Even though the Blue Yeti tends to be popular with beginners (it was the first external microphone I bought), I find that it performs much better in the hands of someone slightly more experienced with audio recording.

For one, you see a ton speaking into the wrong part of the microphone, so Blue Microphones actually provide this graphic to show you how to use it:

If you want the flexibility to record in different polar patterns, have onboard gain control, and have a quiet space to record, the Yeti is a great choice.

If you don’t see yourself using the different pickup patterns, there are better choices for a USB microphone to stream or record.

Because of its sensitivity, no matter where you record I highly recommend pairing it with a shock mount and a quality boom arm. See the Accessories section below.

As for the price, it’s MSRP is 129.99 US, but it’s frequently on sale for less or offered as a bundle. You can also check different colors as the price can vary between them.

My Rating: 4.5/5

Blue Yeti Accessories

Best Deal: You can get the Blue Yeticaster bundle that comes with the mic, boom arm, and shock mount at a big discount. We have a separate post that highlights various Blue Yeti accessories to improve the audio quality of your mic, so we’ll just list the best ones here:

Blue Radius III Shock Mount

A shock mount will prevent a lot of sound that you don’t want from traveling into the mic. Things like typing, tapping on the table or stand, bumping your desk, and more will be amplified because they don’t have to travel through the air. There have been a few versions of the official Radius shock mounts over the years. The latest is the Radius III, which is smaller and lighter than the Radius II – and a better looking in my opinion. Keep in mind that you’ll have to get a stand of some kind (like the one below) in order to use this.

Blue Compass Boom Arm

blue, yeti, microphone, review, logitech, premium

The Compass Boom Arm is a relatively new product from Blue. It’s designed to hold the weight of the Yeti easily, is easy to adjust, and looks great. A boom arm will also help you position the mic in the perfect spot quickly – and then get out your way when you’re done recording. I’ve said this before but a boom arm is easily the best investment you can get for any mic.

WindTech PopGard 2000 Pop Filter

This simply sits over the microphone and helps prevents plosives. What are those? Just put your hand in front of your mouth say “I want a PopGard” You should feel a burst of air right when you say the “P” – and this will help that from overloading the mic capsules.

Rich sound ensures the Blue Yeti Nano is a fine USB microphone — just not the best

Tom’s Guide Verdict

The Blue Yeti Nano is a well-made, great-sounding USB microphone at a reasonable price. If you want to start streaming or podcasting, though, the JLab Talk is even better.


Why you can trust Tom’s Guide?

For a long while, if you wanted an affordable USB microphone for gaming, streaming or podcasting, you didn’t need to look much further than the Blue range. And the Blue Yeti Nano, a smaller and cheaper version of the flagship Blue Yeti, shows why. At 99, it’s not only a great mic but a great deal, practically matching its 130 big brother on sound quality.

Connection: USB

Ports: Micro-USB, 3.5mm aux out

Condensers: 2

Directional patterns: Cardioid, omnidirectional

Size: 8.3 x 3.8 x 4.3 inches

Weight: 22.2 ounces

Now there are other 99 mics on the market, but as our full Blue Yeti Nano review will explain, it still deserves to be part of the best microphones conversation. Even if it might no longer be the absolute greatest at this price point.

Blue Yeti Nano review: Price and availability

The Blue Yeti Nano might not be brand new anymore but it’s still widely available. Best Buy, Dell and Blue itself all sell the mic at its 99 MSRP. There’s a range of color options, too: blue, black, red and gray.

Amazon and Walmart also have it at 96, though if you’re looking to buy as soon as possible, keep in mind that Best Buy is selling the JLab Talk at a discounted launch price of 80.

Blue Yeti Nano review: Design

The Blue Yeti Nano is inexpensive, but doesn’t look or feel cheap. Both the stand and the mic are built from weighty metal, with a tasteful matte finish.

The selection of ports and controls balances functionality with the need to keep things simple; this is, after all, a mic for home users and not recording professionals. For instance, the underside hides a micro-USB port, which connects the Nano to your PC or laptop, plus a 3.5mm aux output. This is useful if you’re recording by yourself, as it lets you plug in a pair of wired headphones so you can hear how you sound.

A volume dial for this aux output sits on the front, and also acts as a quick mute button when you press it. I wish it could control gain as well — like the JLab Talk’s dial can — but the mute button makes it at least somewhat multifunctional. Lastly there’s a button on the rear, which switches between the two directional patterns: cardioid and omnidirectional.

The cardioid setting just records what’s in front of the mic, so it’s ideal for gaming and streaming while minimizing ambient noise. Omnidirectional mode records everything around the mic, so it’s better for group podcasts.

It’s good to have that flexibility; the similarly-priced Rode NT-USB Mini can only record in cardioid. However, the JLab Talk goes further by offering bidirectional (front and rear) and stereo recording modes as well. It also beats the Blue Yeti Nano by having its selector switch on the front of the mic, where you can always see it — if you can’t remember which setting the Nano was last using, you need to turn it around to check.

The Talk is also positioned higher up on its tripod stand, whereas the Nano — with its fixed stand — hangs lower. This might make it less comfortable to use if you’re tall.

That said, because the Nano can pivot upwards, it can just be a case of angling it properly. The circular stand also takes up less space on a desk than the Talk’s tripod, though it’s a few ounces heavier.

Blue Yeti Nano review: Blue Sherpa software

The Blue Yeti Nano doesn’t strictly need any software downloads to get up and running, but the official Blue Sherpa utility (Windows and macOS) adds gain control, so I’d strongly recommend it. Like the Elgato Wave: 3, this is a microphone that’s improved by its desktop app.

Besides the handy gain slider, you can switch between cardioid and omnidirectional patterns, adjust volume or mute. However, the meat of the software lies in the Blue Voice submenu, which provides full EQ controls and a range of filters that can tweak how you sound.

It all looks impressively in-depth, and there are even novelty presets like Classic Radio Voice. In practice, however, sound quality seems to depend much more on getting the right gain level and microphone position than on fine-tuning these settings. And I struggled to hear the difference between most of the presets.

In fairness, some individual settings can be useful. Compression, for one, limits your volume range so you’re audible when whispering but not deafening when shouting.

Blue Yeti Nano review: Sound quality

Another reason you don’t have to pay much mind to the preset filters in the Blue Sherpa app is that the Blue Yeti Nano sounds seriously good without it.

Cardioid mode is particularly impressive. Even a serial mumbler like me sounded crisp and clear, with plenty of depth and detail to my voice. As long as I was close to the mic, the usually poor acoustics of my home became a non-issue. That’s not something I could say of the Nano’s cheaper cousin, the Blue Snowball, which picked up a lot of reverb when I tried it.

Is the Nano better than the JLab Talk as well? Not quite. Distant ambient noise (like trains) was very, very slightly quieter on the Nano than it was on the Talk, but the difference was minimal. Meanwhile the Talk’s cardioid recording produced a richer sound (if just barely).I’d happily use both for gaming or streaming, but the Talk gets the edge.

There’s even less difference in omnidirectional mode. Both microphones lose the warmth that close-up cardioid recording provides, but maintain a consistent quality in the full 360 degrees. You could argue that’s technically a more impressive showing from the Nano, as it only has two condenser capsules to the Talk’s three, but if the resulting recordings sound practically identical then it doesn’t really matter.

As the Nano copes well with both solo and group recording, it happily covers the basics, though the Talk’s additional stereo mode remains a major bonus. Not so much its bidirectional mode — that’s mainly an inferior alternative to omnidirectional recording — but the stereo pattern sounds even more detailed than anything I’ve been able to get out of the Nano, or the Talk’s cardioid pattern. Being able to record in the left and right audio channels also gives the Talk some extra utility for musicians.

Blue Yeti Nano review: Verdict

I don’t want to sound too down on the Blue Yeti Nano as it genuinely is a great USB microphone. It’s robustly built, much more so than the Snowball, and quality-wise it’s capable enough for amateur podcasting or as a major upgrade on your gaming headset’s mic.

And, while there really should be a gain dial on the microphone itself, it ultimately maintains that ease of use that helped make Blue such a big name in the first place. Even if you never touch the Blue Sherpa software, you can start recording high-quality sound almost as soon as the Nano comes out of its box.

Really, its only major problem is that the JLab Talk exists. This sub-100 microphone shares almost all of the Nano’s qualities, including the affordable price, and ends up checkmating it with slightly better sound and an even more user-friendly design. I’d love to say to just take your pick of these two microphones, but the upstart Talk is the better value at this price.

Yeti vs. Yeti X vs. Yeti Nano: Which Blue Yeti Microphone Should You Buy?

In the market for a USB microphone? Let’s discuss the pros and cons of the Blue Yeti, Yeti X, and Yeti Nano.

It’s Impossible to search for a USB microphone without stumbling across the extremely popular line of Blue microphones. The Blue Snowball has been one of the most popular, easy-to-use USB microphones since its debut in 2005.

However, since then, Blue has released the Yeti microphone line that has the same ease of use as the Blue Snowball, only with vastly better sound quality. Since there are a few different versions of the Yeti, which one should you choose? Yeti, Yeti X, or Yeti Nano?

Here’s everything you need to know about the Blue Yeti USB microphone line.

What Are Blue Microphones?

blue, yeti, microphone, review, logitech, premium

Blue designs USB microphones that are meant to be easy for beginners to use. When searching for a new microphone, consumers will quickly become overwhelmed with options that are specifically designed for either musicians, podcasters, or filmmakers.

Blue makes microphones that are easy to plug into your computer’s USB port, are quickly recognized by your system with minimal setup required, and allow you to start recording audio as quickly and seamlessly as possible.

Blue microphones also come with free software called Blue Sherpa which makes it easy to change the microphone‘s gain, polar pattern, and audio effects.

What Do Blue Yeti Microphones Have in Common?

All of the Yetis are USB microphones, which means they’re easy to set up and start recording within minutes of taking them out of the box. Each microphone also has different polar patterns for recording in different setups; this includes Cardioid and Omnidirectional modes.

The Cardioid mode picks up audio from in front of the mic only and blocks out the noise coming from all other directions, which is perfect for recording your voice on a solo podcast and voiceovers.

The Omnidirectional mode takes in audio from all sides; this is great for recording a podcast with multiple people or when you want to record audio from every direction in the room.

Every Yeti also comes with a 5/8-inch tripod thread on the bottom of the microphone which makes it easy to attach to several stands and boom arms. Although each Yeti has slightly different recording sample rates, they all sound similarly fantastic.

Now, let’s compare their differences.

Blue Yeti

blue, yeti, microphone, review, logitech, premium

The original Blue Yeti microphone has been popular with creators since its debut in 2009. It was designed for those who want professional sounding audio without needing and education in audio engineering.

There are many factors to making your audio sound good during and after recording; Blue wanted to make recording professional audio as simple as possible for new creators.

The Yeti comes with four polar patterns: Cardioid, Omnidirectional, Stereo, and Bidirectional. The additional Bidirectional mode cuts out noise from the sides of the microphone, while only capturing audio from the front and rear. This mode is perfect for recording a podcast with only two people.

The Stereo mode uses the left and right channels to capture a much wider soundstage. This mode is perfect for musicians recording acoustic guitars and other instruments, as well as ASMR-style audio recordings.

One of the main cons of the Yeti is its size and weight. The microphone itself is 1.2 pounds, while the stand it comes with is 2.2 pounds, bringing the total weight to 3.4 pounds. This may not sound like much, but combined with the awkward shape of the Yeti when moving it around with a USB cable and headphones plugged in is quite annoying.

However, just like all Yeti microphones, it’s easy to use, the sound quality is fantastic, and it has all the polar patterns you should need.

Blue Yeti X

blue, yeti, microphone, review, logitech, premium

The Yeti X is the newest member of the Yeti family, released in 2019. It builds on the features of the original Yeti with an updated design, an additional condenser for clearer and more focused pickup patterns, and a couple of other additional design elements. One of its headlining features is the ability to monitor your audio levels in real-time on the microphone itself.

The center dial on the front of the mic, used for adjusting gain, now has additional LEDs that light up at incoming sound. These LED lights can be customized in the Logitech G HUB application, which is very fun and looks gorgeous against the black body. This center knob can also be pushed in to mute your audio temporarily.

However, monitoring your audio levels within Blue Sherpa or another audio recording software is superior as it’s more accurate than the Yeti’s LEDs. Although the quick monitoring on the front of the microphone is nice for peace of mind, remember to monitor your audio in another program to ensure it’s at a stable level throughout the recording session.

Overall, the Blue Yeti X is a much-needed redesign of the Blue Yeti, comes with some fun additional features such as customizable LEDs, but lacks any large improvements that would make the extra money worth it for most people.

Blue Yeti Nano

blue, yeti, microphone, review, logitech, premium

The Blue Yeti Nano was released in 2018 and is our favorite of the Yeti line for a few reasons.

The Nano has the same beautiful sounding 24-bit sound quality as the rest of the Yeti line, all in a smaller package. It’s physically shorter than the rest of the Yetis and weighs only 1.39 pounds with the included stand. This is a huge improvement in terms of portability, making traveling with the microphone much easier, as well as everyday storing.

The Nano also has an updated design from the original Yeti. It comes in several colors and the finish is gorgeous. There’s also the center knob that can be used to adjust gain and mute the recording.

A downside of the Yeti Nano is its available polar patterns.

It can only record in Cardioid mode, which is perfect for solo podcasts and voiceovers, and Omnidirectional mode, which takes in audio from all sides of the microphone. A Bidirectional mode would have been a much better polar pattern to include in the Nano to record two people.

Having to use the Omnidirectional mode means risking audio from all parts of the room making its way into your recording, which can be a pain to remove in post-production.

Overall, the Yeti Nano is a great package with an updated design, beautiful sound quality, and sits at an affordable spot between the entry-level Blue Snowball and the Blue Yeti.

Which Blue Microphone Will You Choose?

Choosing a microphone is a very personal decision that depends on your needs and audio recording experience. The original Blue Yeti is a great package that has all you’ll ever need in a USB microphone, as long as the weight and size don’t deter you.

The Yeti X is a great redesign of the original Yeti, but it needs some additional features to be worth the price increase. And the Yeti Nano has the same professional-sounding audio as the more expensive Yetis in a smaller package, but the lack of polar patterns may dissuade some buyers.

Logitech Blue Yeti Review

The easy-to-reach controls and the side-address operation of the Yeti microphone lets you record comfortably. Speak, sing, or play on the same side and capture professional-grade audio.


Our Logitech Blue Yeti Review will list all the product specifications you need to know about the Yeti. It will help you determine if the mic is compatible with your setup.

Logitech Blue Yeti Microphone

The power it consumes is 5V 150mA with a sample rate of 48kHz and a 16-bit rate. It has three Blue-proprietary 14mm condenser capsules and four polar patterns: cardioid, omnidirectional, bidirectional, and stereo modes.

Also, it has a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response and a 120dB (THD 0.5% 1kHz) max SPL.

The Yeti measures 12 x 12.5 x 29.5cm when extended on its mic stand. It weighs 1kg with the mic stand, while the microphone without accessories only weighs 0.55kg.

Headphone Amplifier

We will also discuss the headphone amplifier of the microphone in our Logitech Blue Yeti Review. It has a 16-ohm impedance and a power output of 130mW. THD is 0.009%, signal-to-noise is 100dB, and its frequency response is 15Hz to 22kHz.

System Requirements

For Windows users, you need to have Windows 10 or higher, plus a USB 1.1/ Then for Macintosh, you need the macOS 10.14 or later, plus a USB 1.1/2.0/3.0.

Hands-on with the Logitech Blue Yeti

In this section, we will discuss our user experience with the Yeti. We will let you know about the setup process, BLUE VO!CE, and product performance.

Setting Up

The Yeti does not require any complicated setup. Bring it out of the packaging, and then link your microphone to your PC via a USB cable. Then that is it.

To test, we tried it with some Apple and non-Apple products, and the Yeti worked well together. Plus, it was easy to use, whether we were on a PC or an Apple device.

We opted for an Echo and noise-free room to get the best quality audio. Plus, we set the mic vertically and directly in front of us. Of course, we ensured it was at a distance of about 4 to 10” from the mouth.

Ideally, the positioning of the Yeti should be on a boom mic stand. This setup prevented it from coming into direct contact with our table.

Logitech G Hub Software

Blue VO!CE is a collection of real-time microphone effects that provides clear, professional voice communication. Logitech G HUB supports and enables access to the BLUE VO!CE.

Varmilo Minilo Eucalyptus Keyboard Review

As a result, you have the option to adjust your voice to your personal preferences. With that, everyone can hear you well. Using it will also make you sound like a professional streamer.

Real-time filters remove background noise to make you sound clean, rich, and resonant even in hectic gaming environments. These enhance your best vocal qualities and modify loudness levels.

Performance of the Logitech Blue Yeti

Our Logitech Blue Yeti Review will discuss how the Yeti performed during our tests. Was it good, bad, or just like every other microphone? Let us find out.

The cardioid mode icon resembles a heart, which is perfect because we like this option. For the majority of podcasters, it is the best way to operate.

This environment is suitable for streaming, gaming, music recording, and podcasting. We even tried recording voice-over commercials with the Yeti, which was straightforward. It effortlessly added music to those commentary tracks for professional-sounding results.

Bidirectional is the best option for one-on-one interviews since it captures sound from the front back of the mic. In our experience, the recordings were clear and precise. Plus, we did not record with a digital voice recorder since the mic eliminated our need for it.

Omnidirectional is the ideal mode for roundtable discussions and group chats since this pattern captures the voices of multiple people. The only disadvantage of an omnidirectional pattern is it captures every shock and bump.

The omnidirectional mode captured the many voices of people. Our recordings were also loud, clear, and precise, like the cardioid and bidirectional patterns.

When we used this pattern, our guests told us to keep our hands to ourselves and avoid fidgeting or tapping. Plus, we listened to the recordings and noticed how the Yeti captured most sounds. Though imperfect, this made us realise that the Yeti is a powerful microphone.

Aside from capturing the sounds, the Yeti increased the impact of taps and bumps. That is why we suggest using a pop filter to minimise such sounds.

Stereo mode recorded sounds from the left/right audio channels, which made it ideal for music recording. When we asked some musicians to listen to our recordings with the Yeti, they only had good remarks about this.

The audio quality was clear and detail-filled, which was excellent for music recording. However, we recommend using a pop shield for the best results.

Logitech Blue Yeti Review Summary

The Yeti remains a favourite for podcasting and recording due to its ease of use and affordability. It is an efficient product whether you are recording alone or with multiple people.

This plug-and-play microphone is one of the best for newbie podcasters and streamers. With its included accessories, you will not need to purchase additional equipment, making it an affordable option.

We highly recommend the Yeti if you want a budget-friendly microphone that offers quality and versatility.
