Looking for your first microphone for recording ASMR triggers? The Blue Yeti microphone is a great choice.
- It is the preferred microphone for many podcasters.
- It is a great value for the quality, around $100.
- It records in stereo, so by speaking from side-to-side you can create ear-to-ear sounds.
- It is a condensor-style microphone, so it is very sensitive at picking up whispers, subtle breaths, and mouth sounds.
- It plugs directly into your computer via a USB plug, no mixer or preamps needed.
Do I have some bad things to say about it? Unfortunately, yes.
Here are the Bad things:
- Condensor microphones are also so sensitive that they pick up background noises, so be careful.
- The internal microphones that are used to create the stereo recordings are very close together, so it is difficult to get a well-isolated sound into one “ear” without also recording into the other “ear”.
- Because it plugs directly into your computer, you have to be careful about recording fan noises and/or getting electrical interference into your recordings.
