Review: Blue Microphones Yeti X Professional

Related Articles

The Yeti X by Blue Microphones is one of the favoured mics by vloggers, gamers, and all-around video creators. This USB microphone has been crafted to perform with great focus and clarity, making it a professional microphone that can suit beginners and professionals.

To learn more about the Yeti X, we’ve written some of our favourite points and the negatives of the microphone.

Pros

The Yeti X has a well-built chassis that’s more than enough for a typical vlogger setup. The microphone also includes a superb High-Res LED meter which makes tracking your sound levels that much easier — perfect if you’re starting out. When it comes to the sound itself, it’s truly top-notch and works well for video streaming platforms such as Twitch. The microphone is a simple plug-and-play and works well with broadcasting software such as OBS Studio.

Cons

Sadly, the affordable microphone isn’t the cheapest compared to its competitors like the Rode NT-USB, which on average comes around £10 to £15 cheaper. Moreover, some users have also reported that they’ve been having issues using it on their newer Mac computers, though this doesn’t seem to be a common issue.

Conclusion

Yeti X is an excellent choice for creators looking for a flexible and, more importantly, high-quality sound microphone. It has a user-friendly design that certainly beats many of the cheaper competitors with few faults overall. We’d choose this microphone compared to microphones such as the Razer Seiren X or the Blue Snowball.
