    I haven’t had any experience on the Blue Yeti but at this price, I’d personally go for the Shure MV7 because it has both USB and XLR in case you want to upgrade down the track.

    Also prefers the look of Shure MV7 but that mic will require a stand or boom arm which is not included.

    Have a look at the Samson G track Pro

  • Can anyone else who has a Blue microphone confirm if their system also appears as a 7.1 output only in the driver, despite obviously only supporting stereo out on the headphone jack? It's doing my head in because all games these days automatically select sound mix based on this field, and so I only get the L and R channel, completely missing anything behind me or dialogue (which is often on centre channel only on 7.1 systems). I can use another output, but then lose the monitoring feedback which I've grown quite fond of.

    Their support line is a joke and I have had the most ridiculous responses to what seems a very simple request to fix their driver to correctly report stereo only (the most insane being them talking about which consoles the microphones are compatible with when I clearly told them it's a windows driver problem……)

  • this is terrible price for the Blue Yeti X as they are usually between $150-$190…

    • Yeah, seems to have been a few deals this year where it has been a lot cheaper:

      • I bought the WOW model from the last promo on Amazon US and can confirm that was US$. Cost me 218AU$. Same seller is now 261AU.

          Did you buy it from the Amazon US site? The last WoW model deal was on the Amazon AU site but sold and supplied from the Amazon US. I paid $151 AUD for it.

          • @CoreNex: Bugger!!! You know how to hurt a guy. Got it on the US site

          • @CoreNex: I paid $150.14 AUD due to exchange higher on my purchase day. It's a great condenser mic and I'm surprise how heavy that mic is. Quality built imo.

    • I think you are confused with the base "Yeti" or "Yeti 3" models or perhaps US$. These usually go for 270-300 AU$

  • AKG Lyra is a much better option in my opinion. Jumped on an earlier deal for the AKG 371 + Lyra Podcaster Essentials bundle for $299 and it's been amazing so far

  • I bought a black one from Digidirect (via eBay w/code ~$215), it died within 12months (bought Mar 12th, died and return requested Aug 31st). DigiDirects response time with eBay messaging is somewhere between terrible and non-existant. Digidirect's phone support will yeild quicker results, that said, I called them for an update and they said it would get shipped the next day. Having called them just now (2 weeks later) it's still not shipped.

    While waiting for the replacement I bought the WoW one from Amazon for $150 (I prefer the colour of anyway).

    So apart from this not being a particularly good deal, it's not from a particuallry good seller for after sales support.
