[Best Buy] Blue Yeti X WOW edition $129.99 (USB Microphone)

The new Blue Yeti X, World of Warcraft Edition. I’d been watching the thread on the regular Blue Yeti and someone suggested the Elgato 3. Was kicking myself for not buying it in time.

Some folks in the other thread were complaining about the Yeti showing it’s age, well here’s the new model at the same price. The gold trim actually looks better than the standard X.

Not sure how it compares to the Elgato but having tested it out now, it blows my decade old Blue Snowball out of the water.

In terms of this microphone though, the only difference I can see between this and the X is the colour scheme and the world of Warcraft logo on the back. The logo isn’t visible from the front and you can put a sticker over it to cover it.

I don’t know how much of these sales goes to blizzard and I don’t know if they’re even making money at this price point. I just think, if anyone else is working from home or otherwise wants a solid, modern USB mic for a decent price, this might do the trick.

I just got one from Amazon.ca and am thinking about purchasing this one.

Thanks.
X apparently has 4 microphone capsules compared to yeti which only has 3. It is supposed to produce a better audio.

Solid deal.

Shame no one sells skins for the mic. Painting it is always an option with a high quality spray paint. There are some videos on Youtube about it.

nice deal. This is the X model....so you get a whole bunch of improvements and features over the regular Yeti.

multifunction dial to control levels/balance
LED metering
4th capsule

that gold accenting also looks cool

Been running the regular yeti and got that for around $100 on sale a while back. $130 for an upgrade seems solid and this one looks a lot better too.

What the easiest way to put a mic like this one on an arm instead of it's included stand? This thing is huge and would take up a ton of desk space with it's included stand

Looking at the video it doesnt seem like this mic is any bigger than a cup of coffee. Not sure what you consider as "huge" or a "ton of desk space", but id say a cup of coffee is not a lot of desk space. Just my 2c.
I dont stream, but I do use a camera + mic for work a fair bit. Im really tempted for this but wish I could cover up the WOW logo somehow for a more professional look.

Yep wasnt the cable tested multiple mini usb cables the microphone is detected in windows but does not record anything i checked all possible settings that might be affecting it but everything looked right just wouldnt work anymore. I even connected it to my other computer and had the same issues.

Of course it can, it's not just a dumb mic, there's a whole set of USB circuitry that seems to fail on Blue's products
:arrowl: Thanks if Helped! :D
