The Blue Yeti USB microphone is now on sale for just $89 from a number of retailers including Amazon. This is a highly popular microphone and especially for those looking to get involved in podcasting and YouTube. In truth, this microphone is almost always available as part of a sale although those sales usually involved a game which ups the cost of the overall package - albeit making it cheaper for those who do want the game. If you have been on the fence with this mic and are only interested in buying the actual mic, then this is likely to be your best cheapest option. Especially considering multiple different colors of the mic are all on sale at the same price. So there’s no need to opt for a blue Blue Yeti if you don't want to.
One of the reasons for the popularity of this mic (besides the fact it connects over USB making it super easy for those recording directly to a computer) is its ‘any situation’ design as this can be used like a traditional mic (one direction) or can just as easily be used as an omnidirectional mic and pick up voices from any and all directions. In addition, the mic also features a “mute” button as well as a 3.5mm headphone port so you can listen to yourself at the same time. It even comes with a volume control for the headphone output.
