THE WORLD'S MOST VERSATILE
USB MICROPHONE

Blue Microphones' proprietary tri-capsule technology gives you
four distinct pattern modes to choose from:

PATTERN SETTING
SYMBOL

SOUND SOURCE
& DIRECTION

STEREO MODE

Uses both the left and right channels to capture a wide, realistic sound image—perfect for recording acoustic guitar or choir.

CARDIOID MODE

Well-suited to podcasts, vocal performances, voice-overs and instruments. Cardioid mode records sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone, delivering rich, full-bodied sound.

OMNIDIRECTIONAL MODE

Picks up sound equally from all around the mic. It’s best used in situations when you want to capture the ambience of "being there"—like a live recording of a band's performance, a multi-person podcast or a conference call.

BIDIRECTIONAL MODE

Records from both the front and the rear of the microphone—ideal for recording a duet or a two-person interview.

TOTAL RECORDING
CONTROL WITH YETI

Yeti features studio controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute and microphone gain—putting you in charge of every level of the recording process. If you’re experiencing distortion or feedback while recording an especially loud source—like the deafening sound of an avalanche—simply adjust the microphone's sensitivity with the gain control. Or, if you want to take a break in the middle of a podcast, use the instant mute button.

The microphone comes equipped with a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack and allows you to listen to what you're recording in real-time, without latency delays—that means no more hearing a note 3 seconds after you played it. You can adjust the volume of your headphones using the control on the front of the microphone.

INNOVATIVE DESIGN
MAKES RECORDING
EASY

Yeti doesn’t mind getting pushed around—it lets you adjust and pivot the microphone in relation to the sound source, which optimizes your sound quality. Once you’ve achieved the desired angle, simply hand-tighten the set knobs to secure it in place. Yeti is a side-address microphone, so you can capture the best sound by going face-to-face with it. The microphone can also be folded down for easy portability, or removed completely from its base for mounting directly on a mic stand, or on the Radius shockmount.

HASSLE-FREE SETUP

Simply plug Yeti into your computer's USB port with the included USB cable, calibrate it with your operating system, and you're ready to record—rain, shine, or snow. Yeti offers driver-free operation, while the Yeti Pro requires easy-to-install drivers, available from Blue.

Yeti is compatible with Windows 8 (including 8.1), Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP (Home and Professional), and Mac OS X (10.4.11 or higher), and requires a minimum of 64 MB of RAM*.

The Yeti USB Microphone is backed by a two-year limited warranty.
