Blue (Baltic Latin Universal Electronics) originally started in 1995 when two veterans from the audio industry joined forces and took an unconventional approach to designing and making microphones.

Skipper Wise, one of the two founders, had a wealth of experience as a musician and producer, while Martin Saulspuren's career unfolded in the technical aspects of sound and electronics. Their fundamental business principle was simple: to raise the bar for how to develop and innovate within the world of microphones - both in design and technology. Since 2009, hundreds of thousands of musicians, podcasters, YouTubers, and gamers worldwide have chosen Yeti microphones to use their voices, tell their stories, and create awesome content.

The strategy in 2009 was to segment smaller groups and produce microphones tailored to their specific needs. This approach has put Blue on the map globally, and their campaigns have taken these segments by storm.

Du kan være klar til at streame på sekunder med en Yeti Nano USB mikrofon. Denne mikrofon giver dig den samme legendariske podcast lyd fra Blue, som du kender den, i en kompakt men kraftfuld streamer mikrofon. Vil du være ekstra godt sat i dit streaming setup og opnå en verdensklasse kvalitet? Så skal du kigge mod denne verdenskendte Yeticaster mikrofon, som du kan købe med en tilhørende arm - Compass Premium Boom arm

Blue - Yeti Caster

Perhaps some people have never heard of Blue or the legendary Yeticaster microphone. If that's the case, they probably haven't even read to this point. Now, it's all about a USB microphone from another world. With the Yeticaster, you get a plug-and-play solution that transforms your desk into a workstation with endless possibilities.

When it was released in 2009, it was one of the most advanced microphones in its class. It was innovative in its design. It features a gain control and a headset output that provides zero latency, as well as a mute button. It is robustly built and feels perfect in hand when you hold it. The exterior of the microphone is strong, and you can be sure that the internal wires won't go anywhere.


It comes with a Radius 3 shock mount system, which is an essential part of the overall experience with the microphone. This shock mount isolates the microphone from all kinds of vibrations and disturbances, ensuring that nothing can disrupt the audio output from the microphone.

If you want to further secure your output, you can advantageously purchase a Compass Boom Arm, which provides you with 360-degree rotation and incredibly stable control of the microphone. The idea behind the arm system is that the arm is securely attached to the table, and the microphone hangs downward from it. Then, you can route the cables down the arm, avoiding any loose wires hanging around the microphone and arm.

The USB cable included is approximately 3 meters long, which should be sufficient for most setups.


The Yeticaster is a condenser microphone with a gradient shell. It offers 4 different sound patterns to choose from:

  1. Cardioid
  2. Bidirectional
  3. Omnidirectional
  4. Stereo

These patterns provide various options for recording and expressing your audio, as described further below in the post.

The frequency response is standard at 20Hz - 20kHz, with a bit and sample rate of 16-bit/48kHz. These features all contribute to making this microphone an excellent choice for a home studio. Another feature that supports this is its SPL (sound pressure level) of 120dB, meaning the microphone can work without suddenly experiencing a volume spike.

The control buttons are intuitive and easy to use.

Because it offers multiple sound patterns and settings, it can serve various purposes. It's suitable for both serious musicians and hobby streamers, with a significant advantage in being user-friendly. So, if you need a microphone for multiple purposes, it's exceptional.

However, it's worth noting that the microphone performs best in an indoor environment. Nonetheless, it can handle almost all vocal tasks and can even be used for instrument recording

Youtuber Microphones:

If you're a creative soul who expresses your creativity through YouTube and shares it with the rest of the world, Blue Microphones also offers top-quality options for you. As a wise man once said, "bad sound is worse than bad video." It's a valuable point to remember as you read this.

Blue - Snowball iCE:

The Snowball iCE is the fastest and easiest way to get high-quality audio for recording and streaming on YouTube. Powered by a specially designed cardioid condenser, this microphone delivers crystal-clear sound quality, years ahead of many other computer microphones. It's even certified by both Skype and Discord, two prominent providers of communication software in the industry.

Recording audio with a built-in microphone is a bit like walking on very thin ice. It might work for a short while, but you'll never achieve the dream result. Instead, we guarantee that you'll have a great experience with the iCE.

A computer microphone of decent quality is the key to a better outcome. So start your next project with a Snowball and feel the difference right from the start. It's primarily designed for vocals, as evidenced by its removal of low frequencies to keep as much of the vocals in the "mid-range" as possible.


The Blue Snowball iCE is a really sleek microphone and comes with a tripod and accompanying USB cable.

As the name suggests, you get a microphone that looks like a snowball, if you overlook the "Blue" logo and the microphone grille. It's available in white and black, and we can only recommend choosing the one you like best.

You also get a microphone with a wide frequency range (40 - 18kHz) and a sample rate of 44.1 kHz/16 bit. That's a lot of quality for such a small, handheld, and inexpensive microphone. There's no doubt that the Snowball iCE is one of the sharpest mid-range microphones on the market.

We therefore recommend it for vocal work such as YouTube, streaming, video calls, or similar endeavors.


For your first podcast setup, you don't need a microphone like the ones used in the biggest podcasts in the world. Almost all podcasters upgrade their setup over time, but that doesn't mean you should start in a bad place...

Let's talk about a podcast setup in general first. You'll need a headset so you can hear your recording live and software to record the audio. If you're on a Windows computer, we can recommend Ableton's demo version, Audacity, or Adobe Audition. If you're a Mac user, we can recommend the same software or GarageBand.

Now, back to the microphone...

The Blue - Yeti

microphone line comes in several different levels, and it has a quite reasonable little brother; the Yeti Nano. However, today we're focusing on the big brother, the "Yeti."

The Blue Yeti microphone is suitable for a wide range of recording situations, and you get a LOT for your money with this one. This microphone has long been one of the most popular USB mics out there. So if it fits your needs, the Yeti might just be the perfect microphone for you.

Polar Patterns
Let's quickly talk about something called Polar Patterns in sound: It's actually one of the features that makes the Yeti microphone extra special. It can switch between these patterns. It's equipped with three capsules, which allow it to switch between patterns.

Cardioid Pattern
This is probably the most commonly used pattern for podcasters, streamers, webinars, etc., as it focuses on all the sound directly in front of the microphone.

Omnidirectional Pattern
This pattern gathers sound equally from all around the microphone. It sounds a bit more distant, but works really well for conference calls and other situations where you need clear sound to record multiple people at once


Bidirectional Pattern
The bidirectional pattern can work quite well for an interview with two people. However, we would always recommend using two microphones, as you will achieve much better quality that way.

Stereo Pattern
The stereo pattern can be a great choice if you need a clear separation between your left and right channels. In most cases, cardioid will be the best choice, but the option is available with the microphone regardless

More Features

Jack and Volume Control: Regardless of which USB microphone you choose, you should always make sure you have a jack for your headphones available. This gives you the ability to control your levels while streaming, recording, etc. without delay. You can also control this directly from the microphone, as it is equipped with a small button to adjust the volume on your headphones.

Gain Knob:
The gain knob controls how sensitive your microphone should be, and you can control this important detail with just a simple screw knob. This is not standard for all USB microphones, as it often requires extra software. If someone in the background starts making noise, for example, it's nice to be able to adjust the gain easily and quickly directly on the microphone.

Mute Button:
Should things go completely wrong, there's also a mute button...

To get started with this microphone, all you need is the microphone itself. No unnecessary software or drivers, just your new Blue Yeti USB microphone. Simply plug it into your computer and start recording. Stand Included: You get a stand with your microphone, which is stylish and sturdy. This gives you the freedom to place the microphone wherever you want
