For a long time now I've wanted to start making YouTube videos of
games, so slowly over time I built up my video making arsenal, and recently I
added a microphone to that collection namely, the Blue Yeti Pro. Now, this
microphone costs almost £200, whereas its littler brother, the Blue Yeti, costs
only £100. So, why did I pay almost £100 more for the pro version? Well, it's
all down to personal preference.
Here are the stats for both the Blue Yeti, and the Blue Yeti Pro:
Dimensions (extended in stand): 4.72"(12cm) x 4.92"(12.5cm)
Weight (microphone): 1.2 lbs (.55 kg)
Weight (stand): 2.2 lbs (1 kg)
Cable: 12" Y-Cable and 2M USB cable
As you can see, the Yeti Pro is clearly superior to the Yeti, but
that's not to say that the Yeti is any pushover, by no means is it. The Yeti is
widely used by professionals everywhere. But the question remains, why did I
spend an extra £100 for the Pro?
One of the advantages of the Pro is the option for Analogue
connections, now I have nothing to use this with, but it does leave room for
improvement and expansion in the future. Not only that, but as I said earlier
the Pro is quite superior to the Yeti, but that's just my opinion.
