About Blue Yeti X
Blue Yeti X - Professional Level Sound Quality
A Premium USB Microphone Perfect for Gaming, Podcast, Streaming, and More
Bring Your Voice to Life
The Blue Yeti X USB microphone offers crystal clear audio that allows you to unleash your natural broadcast voice or alter it with advanced effects. Live streamers, content creators, and podcasters have long depended on Blue for taking their projects to the next level, and the Yeti X makes it possible.
The Yeti X comes with a convenient desk stand with forward and backward tilting ability for optimal positioning. The stand and microphone feature a dark blue tone with silver accents that offer a sleek and stylish addition to your production workstation. A multi-function smart knob is located on the front of the unit and makes headphone volume, gain, and mute controls easy to access. On the backside of the Yeti X, another control knob allows you to select various pickup patterns depending upon your project needs.
The Yeti X offers four condensers making it the top of the Blue line of microphones. Recording sample quality is 48 kHz with a 24-bit rate for professional-level performance. With a comprehensive frequency response of 20Hz through 20kHz, every nuance of your vocals is captured in stunning detail. You can push this microphone quite a bit before audible distortion with a 122dB Max SPL for less chance of a muffled vocal sound. One of the best aspects of the Yeti Xs condenser design is that you can alter the microphone's polar pattern to customize the sound of your project. With cardioid mode, the microphone picks up sound from only the front of the unit. However, you can switch to bidirectional and host an interview with a person opposite you, for example. Also, with four different polar pattern options, you can record voiceover, interviews, environments, and instruments, all with the Yeti X.
