[Amazon.ca] Blue Yeti X Microphone - $193.28

Decent price on a really good USB microphone for those who are streamers or want to have a better sounding microphone for their home conference calls. Listed as out of stock from amazon and will ship when its available, but this is the lowest price according to CCC for the X version.

It's a condenser mic so if you have it on your desk, it will pick up any movement like your keyboard, mouse click, everything.

That’s a good price for model X! Was looking for these on sale for a while. Needed something ASAP so went with a cheap condenser mic that did the trick. This looks out of stock for now though so won’t arrive for a while.

Keep in mind the yeti nano is $140 and yeti original is $180.

What's the difference with the X version?

Using my Yeti for conference calls and it sounds good. Except as noted, you can't have this on your desk or else it picks up everything.

It's way overkill for conference calls, but nobody ever complains they can't hear me....I wish more people would get quality mics like this.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

Mainly 24 bit, voice effects and other settings using software, and fancier lights

For most people the regular one or even the Nano should be good enough

I wonder who needs 24 bit for voice. It's kind of funny. And nano has 24 bit.

Not OP, and I don't have this Mic, but a cheaper condenser mic that I picked up at Canada computers for 40$ (Yanmai Q8 I think). I bought one of those desk mounts, a retractable arm, and have it attached to the desk. but angled a bit upwards and facing me.

I haven't tried with the keyboard/mouse to record; but I've tried with my desk speakers (they sit behind the monitors) as well as the TV in the same room all playing quite loud, and what would normally be really clear on the recording, it's hardly noticeable, most of the time it can't even be heard, and just my voice. So I find the condenser mic to be really good. Mine is a cardioid condenser mic, so perhaps it's different from this.. I'm not an expert on this, but just wanted something for work as I do remote teaching part-time, and lots of meetings every day. With 2 kids, it's been a nightmare being at home, but having some decent gear has made it much more manageable.

I have the standard Yeti and this is my problem... on top of it picking up every other sound in my condo. Someone else suggested mounting it, but I don't see how that would help if it is picking up sounds from like 20m away.

I bought a boom arm off of amazon for my Yeti and it sounds way better. A Yeti on a desk is a bad idea, worse for me because I have my PC on my desk and the yeti would pick up the hum of the power supply and hard drives.
I don't know a lot, but the best sound I've produced is by having the mic close to my mouth on a boom arm + pop filter with the gain set to 0. (I have the standard version)
This X version seems to have a different knob with a customizable LED. Maybe there is better audio tech in the X version, not sure though.

I however want to move towards a microphone with XLR capability so I can plug it into my mixer, maybe even the Yeti Pro.
