For those who want a high-quality experience out of their USB microphone, the Blue Yeti Pro offers high-resolution audio, powerful versatility, and superb simplicity, all while providing a stylish on-screen appearance. Whether you're creating online content, recording your instrument for YouTube, making podcasts, or fashioning ASMR content, the Blue Yeti Pro will deliver a high-class sound.

The Blue Yeti Pro fulfills the needs of those looking for both a studio-quality sound and a versatile setup. Record to your computer over USB—using the supplied USB cable—if you want an effortless setup that avoids mixers, preamps, audio interfaces, and things of that ilk. Or, use the included XLR Y-cable and plug into any professional studio gear. Either way, you'll have a high-quality sound in a mic you can depend upon.

A Great Sound for Any Purpose

The Yeti Pro's Tri-Capsule Array utilizes three condenser capsules to give you four user-friendly capture modes—cardioid, omnidirectional, figure-8, and stereo—to handle scenarios such as voiceovers, two-person podcasts, side-by-side interviews, studio/live performances, stereo ASMR content, and more.

Plug-and-Play Universal Compatibility

Plug-and-play setup for Mac/Windows computers ensures easy operation, with no assembly and no messing with software settings. Simply connect the Yeti Pro to your device with the supplied cable and you're ready to get going. Or, use the XLR connection to plug into high-quality analog gear. That means you can use this microphone with multiple setups, or take it with you to various studios.

Headphone Monitoring with Zero Latency

When you're speaking, singing, or playing an instrument in the studio, you need to hear yourself and your backing tracks at the same time in order to perform your best. That's why Yeti Pro is equipped with a "zero-latency" 3.5mm headphone jack to eliminate the short delay between when you perform into the microphone and when you hear yourself in the headphones, so you can stay focused on your performance.

3-Capsule Array

Here’s a more extensive breakdown of the modes this mic offers:

  • Cardioid: Isolates the target source from distracting background noise by rejecting unwanted sounds at the microphone back and sides—ideal for spoken word, vocals, and close-miked instruments.
  • Omnidirectional: Captures and blends together sound equally on all sides—ideal for face-to-face interviews and duets.
  • Figure-8: This mode allows one user to talk into the front, the other to talk into the back, all while deadening capture on the sides, ensuring both vocals are isolated while the room is deadened.
  • Stereo: Captures audio in stereo, providing discrete left and right audio for great sound separation. This is ideal for ASMR and stereo instrument recording.

Ultra-HD Audio Quality

The Yeti Pro's advanced circuitry delivers high-resolution, acoustically transparent, 24-bit / 192 kHz audio resolution to meet the standards of 4K Ultra-HD projects and high-resolution audio projects.

Styled with Appeal and Function in Mind

Giving you a solid and appealing look, the mic looks great on camera. Every function you need—polar patterns, mic gain, headphone volume, and mute—is ergonomically positioned and easily accessed right on the mic so you can stay in the moment while always being in control. An integrated desktop stand makes it easy to position the mic on your desktop. The mic can also be mounted to a traditional mic stand or microphone boom arm for more flexibility in the studio.

What is the Signal to noise ratio?

What is the Signal to noise ratio?
Asked by: Rajnesh
I don't know. I do experience that the mic pickup is so sensitive that it can pick up outdoor noises such as a blustery wind. So you will want to keep extraneous noises down. You can change the pickup for the mic to be in a particular direction though which helps. However, if you are in a quiet location the sound quality is great and very clear! None of this answers your question specifically but maybe it will help a tiny bit.

Why is the XLR a 4-pin?

Why is the XLR a 4-pin?
Asked by: Micah
The Yeti Pro has a male 5-pin XLR connector (not 4-pin) on the bottom which is a stereo XLR connector for stereo applications. A 12" Y-cable with two standard male 3-pin XLR connectors is included with the mic which outputs stereo audio via the left and right XLR connectors when using the mic in stereo mode. When the Yeti Pro is used in the other modes, a mono signal is output to both the left and right XLR connectors.
