The Blue Yeti is an amazing USB microphone that sounds as impressive as it looks. (I use the Yeti Pro with my Mac and love it.) Now Blue has announced the Blackout Yeti. It adds a gorgeous new style to the company’s best-selling USB microphone family. Considering the quality the sub-$150 price is a bargain.
The all new blackout finish on the new Yeti microphone “adds style to your music, gaming, or podcasting setup.” At the same time it offers the same recording prowess that have made the Yeti a hugely popular success.
The Blackout Yeti uses the same proprietary tri-capsule technology as the standard Yeti microphone. It offers four different pattern settings for recording vocals, instruments, podcasts, game streaming and more. As Blue explains:
Yeti, the world’s most celebrated USB microphone, offers Blue’s premium condenser capsules for the highest quality, most versatile audio recording capabilities. For superior results in any situation, Yeti features four different recording patterns—cardioid for vocals and broadcasts, bidirectional for interviews, omnidirectional for the whole group, and stereo for separate left and right audio. Yeti also features a built-in headphone jack for zero-latency monitoring, and direct controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute and microphone gain. Featuring driverless installation, Yeti works with both PC and Mac.
The Blackout Yeti has an MSRP $149.99 but you can purchase it [Amazon Affiliate link] here at a nice discount.
