Reviews around build (5.00 of 5)

  • It is extremely heavy for it's size and very solid and well built.
  • Just sorry illogical nitpickers left one-star reviews of a port rather than an actual review of this really nice well-built mic, its high-quality output, and its useful features
  • It is great build, you can drop it and not worry about it, it is SOLID
  • It would be nice if the software could support a Linux build someday to take into account Raspberry Pi and Steam gaming solutions

Reviews around feature (4.01 of 5)

  • That means you do not get any of the cool features of the Blue Voice.
  • NA recorder, now at a fraction of the price of the Yeti with better features, had the same problem.
  • The one very stupid design feature, and why I subtracted one star, is that the USB input is at the bottom of the microphone.
  • The sound quality with this mic is excellent, and the features are great - I wasn't sure that the LEDs on the front would be worth paying more for, but they are very useful when recording and streaming
  • The Yeti X is the more recently upgraded version of the Yeti with a lot of nice features, like the realtime monitoring using the LED meter which works really well by the way

Reviews around thing (3.78 of 5)

  • How many times do you put the damn thing in the wrong way?
  • n’t understand the fuss about USB A port while most people still have devices with USB A ports
  • However, on discord, and with a microphone arm, this thing works great.
  • This is a very risky thing that could happen and disrupt the audio during class or recording
  • This thing sounds amazing, save the tweaks that the BlueVo1ce software are great.

Reviews around product (3.64 of 5)

  • Pretty good except missing usb type c
  • Expensive products deserve rigorous engineering practices, there is little engineering rigor applied to this product.
  • Blue, please modify this product and release it with USB-C!!!!Edit: Since I wrote this review, I have found quite a good number of microphones with USB-C
  • n’t understand the fuss about USB A port while most people still have devices with USB A ports
  • On to my review of the mic itself after addressing the complaints that this mic doesn’t have USB-C. Sorry, but it really bothers me to see illogical one-star reviews that make no sense at all when they ought to be assessing the quality of the mic itself.1) Micro-USB works great and most products are still using it

Reviews around sound (3.49 of 5)

  • I can't recommend this mic, but I'm also not returning it because when it works, it works very well and records terrific sound
  • It delivers all the tones from lows to highs and seems to balance the sound well even without much editing or playing around.
  • You can tell if your clipping (going to red and distorting the sound) and adjust your gain on the fly
  • The mic is very nice and the sound is very good better than the first GEN
  • Sent that back in and now I'm dealing with horrible sound while also not being able to connect to the G HUB software that is compatible with this product

Reviews around software (3.36 of 5)

  • I like everything about this mice, sounds pretty good has very good software
  • The mic is awesome and I love the software because you are able to tailor your settings to your needs
  • Worked great for a week or 2 and then software stopped working
  • This mic is of sub-standard fidelity even for a USB 2.0 interface and comes with exceptionally poor software
  • However I don’t recommend using the gain switch on the microphone, but the software on ghub instead

Reviews around yeti (3.17 of 5)

  • It's better engineered in some ways than even the solid classic Blue Yeti
  • This Blue Yeti X blows any mic out there in the market asway
  • The Yeti X is very adjustable through the 'Blue Voice' software in the Logitech G HUB
  • but I wanted wanted to see if the Yeti X would make a noticeable improvement
  • The Blue Yeti is notorious for being the go to option for voice broadcasting if a condenser mic with cardioid (among other patterns) functionality is what you need

Reviews around usb (2.11 of 5)

  • At the Blue Yeti X's price, it's possible to get a mid-tier XLR microphone and an audio interface for a hundred more, but for those that just want a USB solution that works out of the box, you can't do better
  • Had to contact RMA twice because every unit I received had a defective micro USB port
  • The power cord did not fig snugly into the usb slow on the microphone so the power fluctuated on and off to the mic
  • The options it provides for the cost are awesome (omni directional, stereo, cardioid, dual sided for interviews), there is not a better USB for so many uses
  • This new Yeti X is probably the best USB microphone I’ve had the opportunity to use and test

Reviews around noise (1.85 of 5)

  • Once it starts buzzing (static noise and you can hardly hear anything else), the only sure/quick fix is to re-connect it
  • Perfect with discord’s noise suppression, not as good in-game ppl can hear my keyboard it’s a
  • I had to put a hard gate on the mic to isolate room noise
  • The microphones filter doesn’t really do it’s job at all and the microphones noise cancelling does not work at all either
  • However, when toggling the Yeti-X's mute button on/off during recording, it produces a very audible thump or clicking noise

Reviews around people (1.69 of 5)

  • I do not have any particular criticism of the USB-A to micro-USB solution (there are some angry people out there with USB-C obsessive needs), most setups are desktop which are USB-A cords, but this would be a bit annoying on Macs.
  • The people lamenting the fact that is has micro USB are being overly critical
  • Everything is now up and functioning marvelously and because of stellar customer support people like Shay
  • The only issue some people will have is that if you buy this without special mounting brackets (or removing from mic from the desk surface), it's very hard to avoid picking up keyboard noise, even with careful selection of condenser pickup ranges
  • Hence, if you buy this mic to use with your M1-chip computer, you will join the unhappy ranks of the unhappy people who are already in that situation

Reviews around port (1.00 of 5)

  • Had to contact RMA twice because every unit I received had a defective micro USB port
  • n’t understand the fuss about USB A port while most people still have devices with USB A ports
  • The downside is the usb B mini port it begins to come loose with use.
  • They put the USB-C port on the bottom of the microphone, so that whenever you move the microphone, it falls out.
