The Good Whether you're recording a podcast, an interview, or a concert, the Yeti's THX-certified sound quality, integrated gain control, and four recording modes (including stereo) make it a top choice for a USB microphone.
The Bad If you're looking for something subtle and portable, the Yeti is not for you. Plus, the wobbly plastic knobs make us wary about durability.
The Bottom Line The Yeti is one of the richest sounding, sonically flexible USB microphones money can buy, but its large size makes it inconvenient for portable applications.
