Great mic, cool looking, priced right

"I record IVR messages with it and the sound quality is great. It records only the sound s I need it to capture. Love the pattern selections which make it multi-functional."

Fantastic value for money

Pros: excellent price for a quality product
Cons: none!
"My daughter likes to record voice-overs and was looking for a sturdy good quality microphone. After quite a bit of research she decided on the Blue Yeti USB microphone. We shopped around a bit and the cheapest we could find it elsewhere was $150. The price at costco is fantastic and the Blue Yeti is obviously well made. We're very pleased with our purchase."

Great Buy - Highly Recommended

"Few years ago, I brought the Blue Snowball microphone and was pretty confident with the quality of this manufacturer. Around Dec 2011, I brought the Blue Yeti microphone due to its zero-latency headphone output which is a very unique feature for a desktop USB microphone. With this feature, you can even use this microphone for online voice call provided your environment is quiet enough.
The microphone itself is an excellent product which produce professional quality recording and price is very reasonable compare to other professional microphones. Highly recommended!
At the time of my purchase, the regular price listed in Costco.ca seems to be the best price. It is even cheaper than some of the advertised sale price from other retailers."

What a great deal!

"As advertised, this is a great plug-and-play USB microphone, solidly built and well-designed. The same product is available on other websites for $170, so this is quite a good deal.
The Yeti outperforms other mics in its price range, and has performed flawlessly with my Mac laptop, using GarageBand.
