What is the advantage of having a condenser microphone?
Condenser microphones are the most common type of microphones for recording audio. They are often used in recording studios as they have a greater ability to reproduce all of the audio of an instrument or voice. Using phantom power, condenser microphones usually have a louder output but can be more sensitive to loud sounds.

What position does the condenser microphone pick up sound from?
This microphone has three condenser capsules inside to record best quality sound. The microphone has several settings to choose from, making it a suitable solution in a variety of situations. The microphone can be setup to detect audio from a single direction, from two directions or from the entire room.

What would I use this microphone with?
This microphone has a range of recording options to allow you to record high quality sound for a variety of purposes such as podcasts, 2 way interviews, meetings, performances, voiceovers and more. The microphone connects directly into your USB and is simple to set up, allowing you to start recording in minutes.


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yeti beats Nessie I am far from being an expert in audio but as a novice I purchased the Nessie. I returned the Nessie as I found that you had to be really close to the mic to be heard, I tried changing the settings but to no avail. The only positive is that the Nessie has a built in sound card that works out the best clarity and quality of the sound it hears. Once swapped for a Yeti I was amazed at the difference, the yeti can pick up a full room no matter what posting ion the mic and people are in. It is a no brainer for me, I could crouch over my Nessie or by totally free to move about and still capture great audio. Ten out of ten

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a superb microphone great for gaming videos and vlogs and even recording songs. The best usb mic in the market. The Yeti has beaten my expectations and removes background noise very well creating a clear smooth sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from George Lucas doesn't THX-approve any old tat, and it is immediately obvious why he (or his brand) approved this - it is simply a very, VERY good quality microphone. Highly recommended

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For years I've been looking for a really good mic to use on my PC. This is it! It is big and it is sensitive to handling noise. If that's a problem ditch the supplied stand and use a professional resilient mic stand, the mic has a thread to take it.
