Trying to find the perfect microphone and mounting system for podcasting, streaming or merely recording, and voice dictation solutions can be a real uphill battle. This isn’t because there are so few top-flight options out there, but because there are so many.
At the same time, there’s a reason why the overwhelming majority of professional podcasters, YouTube streamers, and other home recording professionals choose to use the Blue YetiCaster.
Designed to work right out of the box (with almost no set up whatsoever), the Blue YetiCaster is about as close to “set it and forget it” as you are going to get.
You want your new microphone to provide the highest quality audio possible when you are streaming or recording. From our play, this is an area that the Blue YetiCaster delivers on in spades.
Regarded highly for the manufacture of quality USB microphones, Blue does not disappoint. You’ll enjoy crystal-clear audio capture through this microphone thanks to the proprietary triple capsule technology capable of reproducing studio-quality sound without paying studio-quality prices.
Four individual patterns settings guarantee that you will be able to tailor this microphone to your audio needs quickly. No more having to fiddle around or full with a lot of “power user settings”. If you want to dig under the hood of the Blue YetiCaster, however, to tweak things a little more, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to do exactly that.
Onboard controls for volume, pattern selection, instant mute, microphone gain, and more give you quick access to the features you need to leverage on-the-fly. Easy control access helps you tinker with your audio quality to get the best possible results every time you fire it up.
Mounting Arm and Shock Protection
Another great feature of the Blue YetiCaster is that it includes a Compass premium microphone boom arm.
With internal springs that allow you to flex and positioned this microphone to your heart’s content, you are guaranteed to find the perfect position for yourself. The mounting arm worked great on our standing desk as well.
The Compass is super easy to use right out of the box (with the Blue YetiCaster already installed in the articulating boom arm). We experienced smooth, near-silent operation out of the YetiCaster while enjoying the sophisticated aesthetics at the same time.
If that wasn’t enough, you also get a Radius III custom shock mount solution. This insulates your microphone from ambient vibration, ambient noise, shock, and pretty much anything else you can imagine. Every little bit that helps you to take your recording and streaming sessions to the highest level.
Whatever streaming platform you are creating content for, if you are serious, you will want to get your hands on the Blue YetiCaster. We found this microphone to offer superb sound quality. It’s a must if you’re going to stand out from the competition. That said, good content helps too.
