The world's #1 USB microphone

Whether you're recording at home; on the road; or in the Himalayas; Yeti helps you produce studio-quality recordings every time.
Total recording control with Yeti
Yeti features studio controls for headphone volume; pattern selection; instant mute and microphone gain putting you in charge of every level of the recording process. If you're experiencing distortion or feedback while recording an especially loud source like the deafening sound of an avalanche simply adjust the microphone's sensitivity with the gain control. Or if you want to take a break in the middle of a podcast; use the instant mute button.
The microphone comes equipped with a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack that allows you to listen to what you're recording in real-time; without latency delays that means no more hearing a note 3 seconds after you played it. You can adjust the volume of your headphones using the control on the front of the microphone.
Innovative design makes recording easy
Yeti doesn't mind getting pushed around-it lets you adjust and pivot the microphone in relation to the sound source; which optimizes your sound quality. Once you've achieved the desired angle; simply hand-tighten the set knobs to secure it in place. Yeti is a side-address microphone; so you can capture the best sound by going face-to-face with it. The microphone can also be folded down for easy portability; or removed completely from its base for mounting directly on a mic stand or Radius II shockmount.
