The internet’s favorite USB microphone is 30% off for today only (so act fast!).
As a videographer and occasional guest on podcasts, I find that one of the hardest parts of my job is getting clean audio. For the most pristine sound, you’d typically need an acoustically treated room with as little background noise as possible, plus an XLR microphone running into an audio interface that’s plugged into your computer … suffice to say, audio can get expensive fast.
That’s why the Blue Yeti is one of the internet’s most beloved microphones. It’s an inexpensive, but incredibly versatile microphone that plugs directly into your computer through USB, and features four different pattern modes to give you as many options for recording as possible. The Yeti’s already a steal at its normal price of $129, but for $89 it’s an absolute must-have.
For voiceovers and podcasts, I’ve used the Yeti more than any other microphone. It’s small enough to fit in a backpack and sturdy enough to survive bumps from any loose objects in your bag, making it a perfect travel companion — I’ve taken it to CES countless times, and the omnidirectional and bidirectional modes sound great for in-person podcasts.
I’ve taken the Blue Yeti to countless trade shows and used it to record everything from voiceovers and podcasts to guitar and vocals for music projects.
