Yeti comes in two styles, the Yeti and the Yeti Pro. Both give you excellent sound quality and multiple recording options including omni, stereo, cardioid, and bi-directional. Both have adjustable angles, mute buttons, and USB capabilities, which makes it easy to plug in and record.
While the Pro comes in black and the Yeti comes in silver, the more notable differences between the two mics are the analog capabilities, recording resolution and, of course, price.
In addition to USB capabilities, the Pro also allows you to use XLR cables with a separate analog circuit path which lets you use the mic with professional studio mixers and preamps.
The Pro's recording resolution is 192kHz/24-bit while the standard model is 48 kHz/16-bit.
Yeti's retail price is $149.99 while the Pro costs $249.99.
Deciding whether to opt for the standard Yeti or upgrade to the Pro is all about use. If you plan on using the Yeti to record music or more complex audio work, then you'll want to invest in the Pro. If you only plan to use it for traditional podcasts or to just play around, then the standard model is sufficient.
If you need a microphone, give Yeti a shot. The sound is crisp. The mics are easy to use, and the results are superior to others brands. For a relatively inexpensive and easy-to-use microphone, the Yeti certainly does deliver impressive, professional-grade sound, all in the comforts of your home.
