    Yeti Pro on El Capitan

    • Written by from Oakville

    As someone else has also mentioned, the Yeti Pro stopped working after I updated to El Capitan. I think this is unacceptable. Either Apple should have left the driver alone when they came up with El Capitan or Blue should have updated a driver for El Capitan. I contacted Apple and they blamed Blue for not updating the driver for the mic. I have contacted Blue but I am still waiting for a response in regards to my inquiry. I would have expected this from Microsoft but not Apple, it is very disappointing.

    Issues with El Capitan

    • Written by from Evanston

    My Yeti Pro, which worked flawlessly with Yosemite and Windows 10, does not work with El Capitan. Caveat emptor!

    Blue's best product, and a good value.

    • Written by from KENOSHA

    I've spent quite a bit on Blue misfires, especially after Cisco Systems pulled the plug on the Flip video camera that Blue had geared up for, then unloaded on unsuspecting customers as 'potentially" useful for superior audio recordings made with an iPod Touch.. The same goes for the mics that Blue made for use with the iPod Touch. Both versions of this $60 mic were marginally operative, requiring adhesive tape to keep them in place when plugged into the bottom of an iPod. Fortunately, the Yeti microphone is not one of Blue's misfires. Its audio is slightly superior to Blue's Snowball mic both in terms of frequency range and sound stage. And for announcing it enhances the voice with "body" that the user is bound to be pleasantly surprised by. The extra weight and size of the mic seem gratuitous, made to impress the customer more than to supply a heavier magnet for superior sound. And as some others have observed, the knobs for volume and tone are not a tight and smooth, custom fit but have enough room to be jiggled from side to side, top to bottom. Nevertheless, my Yeti has held up for several years. Moreover, the weight and exra surface area of the mic facilitate attachment of a heavy "pop filter" to the mic or base. When so equipped, the Yeti produces audio comparable with studio mics at 3-4 times the price.

    Not My Best Mic

    • Written by from New York

    I have not been able to fix the problem of this Blue Yeti Pro mic constantly dropping and reconnecting in Garage Band. I know many people have this same problem and try various fixes. Some work some don't. Mic works fine in Audacity though. I just bought a new iMac 2015 and the Blue Yeti still drops and reconnects constantly.

    This was a gift so I will just store it away with other devices that don't work, but for those considering a purchase here, I'd be a little cautious about connecting this USB mic to iMac.

    Avoid this microphone. The USB mini-B connector used is prone to problems.

    • Written by from Mississauga

    I've had my brand new Blue Yeti for less than a week. I really wanted to like this microphone, and bought it based on the excellent reviews for sound quality, etc. However, you are gambling if you buy this microphone. The connection to the computer is unreliable at best: for me, it drops most of the time unless I lightly hold the cable end in place with a light finger touch.

    This problem is a result of the use of the USB mini-B connector, and because of that, I'm unlikely to simply exchange my unit for another because the mini-B connector is a known source of problems. Just search for the question "Why was Mini USB deprecated in favor of Micro USB?" and you'll understand: "poor reliability after a significant but not vast number of uses." (Very few uses, in my case.)

    I can't recommend this microphone until and unless Blue releases a new version addressing the issue.

    Great, but not for everyone.

    • Written by from Richmond hill

    sounds great
    you can plug in a seperate headset to hear yourself,
    volume knob, (mic input level, 'gain')
    mountable on normal mic stands
    looks awesome
    plug and go
    can hear from a specific direction.

    its huge. VERY huge
    hard to record yourself talk, IF you are trying to game with this.
    need foam under stand (or something soft) to lessen keyboard typing noise
    if mounted to a stand, its huge, and can have weight balancing problems.
    wont work well if you have a loud room, (loud heater, A/C, family, friends) as it picks up their sounds,

    I might have a lot of cons, considering i'm rating it for a 5-star product, but those are things i find are important to note for people who may need to know. However, i'm rating this 5-star regardless because you just cant get a better sounding mic for that price.

    I love this mic, I bought this because I want and need to record songs, I own a mac and I can totally hear the difference between just recording with the built-in mic in the photo booth recording and using the blue yeti mic to record, the difference is amazing. If anyone's looking to buy a mic for recording songs, podcasts, voiceovers, or just for maybe video or voice chatting, I recommend this mic.

    No sound, no volume control, no Apple return

    • Written by from North Adelaide

    I purchased this item but I did not open it for a few weeks. It does not work at all. The volume knob is not fixed, there is no sound although it receives power. The Apple Return policy refers to goods you can return online and goods you can't. It then speaks to returnable items and ignores un-returnable items. Australian consumer law protects unworkable items but Apple doesn't account for that. I am about to leave for overseas where I need to use this item for fieldwork. $300 down the drain. It's a disaster. It's so disappointing now to find so many negative reviews online about the YetiPro which 'has no gain' that the fantastic quality sound was never going to be heard.

    Way too sensitive

    • Written by from Maple

    This mic is way too sensitive even with the gain a quarter from zero. It amplifies anything and everything even on another floor. I have no choice but to return it as even with the gain set to 0, I end up hearing a buzzing noise.

    Great sound but cheap corners cut.

    • Written by from Port Hope

    This mic has an excellent sound. Recording quality is as good as you can get especially for the price. The build of the base and mic itself are super sturdy but the knobs are cheap and awful.
    The USB connection is at an awkward spot that causes it to bang against the stand when moved. It causes serious damage really quickly with the connection. Its built for quality sound but not built to last.

    Wonderful Conference room mic!!

    • Written by from Garland

    This mic works wonders for me. I have it suspended from my conference room ceiling connected to a mac pro for VOIP calls and video conferencing... It has been working great for about 9 months or so. The room is a 20'x25' or so. I wish it came with a baffle or something since I have speakers in the overhead as well, but I just have to fine tune it to reduce any feedback, if I have any. Most of the times it is really an issue on the remote ends.

    LOVE this product.

    • Written by from Ypsilanti

    This is my second microphone now. My first was from a completely different company and it somehow developed a terrible tinny, static sound over time and I was so disappointed so I had high hopes for this one. I record music and vocals on a regular basis so I needed a microphone I could really depend on.

    First of all, the design is so beautiful and practical. Turning the mic upside down in the holder is a great way to store it on your desk when it's not in use (whereas with my old mic, I had to store it in my desk drawer in a sock, otherwise it would just lay there and roll around and get damaged). It's very simplistic and it actually feels a bit lighter than it looks.

    The sound quality is impeccable and really not expected from a $150 microphone. I've only had mine for about 3 months now but it really hasn't seemed to age at all. It's also very easy to use on a mac, not complicated at all.

    I would recommend this product to anyone for any reason.

    Solid, well built device. Great user interface, all you had to do was plug in and start recording. So happy that I treated myself to this microphone. The sound is fantastic, and there are multiple settings on the physical microphone for any type of recording you wish to do.

    Great but cons

    • Written by from Leiden

    Got this microphone since 2 days ago and I must say it's a pretty big but very nice looking microphone. Although the sound haven't blown my mind yet.
    I'm still configuring with the settings to get the best out of it. My mic is like 8 inches away from my face and once I'm speaking with gain low you can barrely hear my voice and onve I bring the gain a bit up you already start hearing things from 10 feet away and soft background noices. I hope I can fix this soon!

    Best USB mic

    • Written by from Springfield

    This is the best USB mc I have used, even better than the goofy snow ball. I use this for voice overs and Garageband. If you have even the slightest concept of how to record music this will work perfect for vocals and acoustic instruments. Great product.
