I use this mic to do voice overs for my Youtube videos. It's way better than the $30 PC mic that I used for online chat for over 10 yrs, despite friends saying the sound quality of my voice for that old mic was good. You can hear everything in the background with that old mic. I had to perform lots of post processing to clear or minimize the background noise and increase the volume of my voice. I don't want my viewers to turn up their volume to watch my videos. When I increase the volume, I end up with more hissing noise - not good. Eliminating the hiss will result in my voice sounding like I was under water. Lots of work! In comes this Yeti. This eliminates a lot of the background noise, my voice is louder, and post processing was quick - saves a lot of time! People need to understand that the mic is in front, not the top if you want it to record only your voice and not the background noise. I notice some Youtubers do this and it makes them sound like their in a zoom meeting or using those crappy built-in laptop mic. Maybe that is why some people give this mic a bad review because it was misused. For the minor issues. The software has to be downloaded. It doesn't come with an installation disc so people who assume that it should work perfectly out of the box will also find it frustrating or dislike it. It may also take a bit for your PC to sink with the mic to get it to work properly. I've had a few times where it keeps blinking yellow/orange because my PC doesn't recognize it. But after some use, that light doesn't blink anymore and it works every time I boot up my PC. With that said, you need to download the software get the bast out of this mic despite the box/label says it works right out of the box! Other minor issue, it does it good job of limiting the high volume of my voice and preventing it from cracking. It's good but not great so that means I can still hear cracking noise of my voice when it gets too loud. It sits 8 inches from me and I wasn't yelling. It's not really noticeable but if my viewers have excellent/high end headsets/earbuds, they may catch it, but not really an issue worth calling out or effect the quality of the video. I got this mic on sale so overall, I like it!
