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.
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.
