TyranaGamer: i bought a snowball (white) but mine doesn't have the switch on the back
like ive seen on most others... not sure why unless i bought a cheaper
version or something. cuz i do recall it only being about 40 bucks.
SparkyThePlayer: Glad I didn't buy the Snowball. Sounds like a cheap 10 dollar karaoke
microphone from China compared to the others in my opinion.
GamersGame: I got the blue snowball and it dosent even work with windows 7 does the
Audio Technica AT2020 work with windows 7
Thoric: I want to get the Blue Yeti for my videos but i am worried when i am
playing and recording my voice will the mic pick up the sound of my
keyboard and my mouse clicking? Pls help
George Ou: You need to match the loudness level in the 3 mics to make it a fair test.
Cozy Toad: They're all crap (usb mics suck in general) But if I had to use one of
these mics I'd choose the chrome snowball, because it's the prettiest, and
that's as good a reason as any!
BlurHD: Im choosing between AT2020 ($130) and Blue Yeti ($95 sale) and buying from
Amazon.... Please help.
CALISTAR FRESNO: I had an audio technica like the one in this video they are a freaking
dissapointment the little leg stand broke the 2nd day the usb 2.0 input on
the Mic has little prongs in it that are really weak and became loose and
fell of within a week not a very good Mic that blue yeti though gets a ten
all around for price,quality, ease of use, and durability very good mic
I've had it about a month now I recorded a whole MIXTAPE and it still works
like new BLUE YETI Hands down worth every penny
Ty Brown: I think the AT2020 is the best one. Yea the Yeti has all those features,
but I think the noise cancellation on the AT2020 make up for all that.
SHEM: Blue Yeti sounded the best - neutral and clear
Snowball sounded dull, a bit boxy and picked up room reflections
AT2020 picked up some pops & was close to Blue Yeti + low-mids boost.
I'd personally prefer the Blue Yeti, maybe give it a bit more body.
Sarcastic Klein: I wish I had watched this video before buying the snowball...
NickonAquaMagna: The snowball may be quieter, but the quality still sounds fine.
MB Seven: I don't really think Blue and AT are really aiming for the same thing. The
AT2020 is in itself a studio microphone, but they adapted it to USB for
relative ease of use (which was stupid in my opinion). Also note that the
AT2020 has an entirely metal construction. Meanwhile the Blue mics are
oriented towards casual users and are made of cheap plastic.
Even Eriksen-Ørpetveit: At 2020 sounds best
abeham7: I'm glad the Snowball does that because my current mic is WAY too sensitive
XD you can hear my keyboard strokes in the background
MarauderShields: For quick comparison:
2:00 Blue Yeti
2:14 Blue Snowball
Robert Skywalker: Tbh, the Snowball sounds the same, at least to me, with this video, just a
little quieter. Yeti wins for features, Snowball for cost. Audio
techinca... Just don't get it. Yeti for pros, Snowball for beginners.
Looking at Yeti for myself though, although a beginner, I believe it will
last a quite a while, and the audio monitoring will be a really helpful
feature when wearing a headset.
Snowball was quiet and Technica has a bit of Echo or room-like sound to it,
but still better, and Yeti seemed the best to me.
Rk9Productions!: god snowball shounds crap
Lance Harry: the snowball for me is awesome
OverPoweredMC: I have the blue snowball
JonatanPlayz: blue snowball
Dr. C. Squishy: I have the AT2020, If you want some samples of it during Gameplay you can
look at my videos or some from GoldGlove, He also does really good gaming
videos. I really like the microphone, the Yeti is a fantastic microphone
for people who are just getting into audio work. The only downfall i could
say about the AT2020 is that you need to know how to use it (Optimisation,
Efficiency, and Detail Recognition software). Mind you, the AT2020 also
sounds good if you run it just plug&play, But in my opinion sounds better
if you take the proper steps to optimise it. Yeti, and AT2020 are both
great for the price and the use. I honestly wouldn't recommend the
snowball, Any version. They are simply lacking in build quality, and the
reverberation you get from the outer shell is just unbearable.
Really good video man, One more sub on the way to 500K
ThatTexasGamer: The snowball is a great mic if you are on a budget. After looking for a
while I found a snowball on amazon for only 50$ and around $60 if you get a
pop filter with it (I got the pop filter to). The audio may be quieter, but
they quality is amazing.
Exil: If your goal is simply to kill the ambiance sound then a cardiod isn't
maybe for you. I like cardiod because of the "richest" voice it gives, like
a radio guy tone but it will pickup room noise. My tip is to simply use a
xlr to usb adapter; like the X2u from Shure or the Icycle from Blue
Microphone and then free yourself from usb microphone range. You can now
pickup any xlr microphone you may desire including phantom power's ones.
Then have the choice between any - cardiod/hypercadiod/shotgun/etc. NTG2 is
an amazing shotgun for a reasonable price or any others one your heart
desire like a Lavalier system to kill any ambiance with great result. Don't
forget to get a pop filter (or make one cheap) and consider a stand for it
away from the desk (computer vibrations noise, touching your desk boom,
etc.) If a cardiod lover like me, can buy or build a nice acoustic box
around it to improve the quality tenfold.
GuruTheJesse: can the snow ball be put on a different microphone stand?
SpacemanShow: So I glad I invested the extra money in the Yeti. Should be getting in the
next few days! Very excited.
EDS3Gaming: Audio technica sounded better. I do like my M-audio mic much better though
Alex Overman: I'm interested in either the AT2020 or the Blue Yeti, but I wanted to know
which performs best at a distance of ~ 1 Meter / 3 Feet?
Huskey Entertainment: Here at our recording studio we use both microphones. Through extensive
tests we have found that there is no difference in sound quality. The only
differences are the features.
-fits more shock mounts and boom arms than the Yeti
-gain control on mic
-can choose from 4 sound patterns
-can plug headphones in to hear the mic
Both microphones are great and we recommend both!
Brazzers CumStorm: So... Yetis do in fact exist... it's not a myth...
Turtle PlaysGames: your wrong your opinion is wrong
Lipsick: the blue yeti may sound better guys but beware it picks up ALL sounds
around you. if you live in the city & your window is open it will pick up
DanielCraft.TV: the technica is in first on sound blue snowball second sorry yeti it think
techinica is best
Sol Wynne: AT2020 was the best
Becky Hockersmith: At2020
The Glxn: Audio Technica AT2020 sounds better IMO
xXTheDDude3Xx: Instead of the AT2020, i got the AT2500 because of the headphone jack and
beacuse it was cheaper
SteelGaming: Blue Yeti IS DEFINITELY BETTER
Al Breaker: which mic is best for making a voice over? without capturing backround
The Control Lab: Thanks, good review, even though it seems a bit biased toward the Yeti
Misael V.: I have the yeti and, i don't really like it that much for vocals, it just
picks up everything miles away, and it can be very hard to find the best
quality setting, ive had it for a year now, still can't find the best
setting that sounds best
SJ Plays HD: The snowball is very quiet
DrinkThis: The snowball is what I'll go for. I found a deal that it's 60$. It sounds
fine. Sounds softer than the other two but I'm sure I can increase the
IAmTheIronHulk: Yeti is best. I asked for the snowball today for my birthday. I should said
SVAFnemesis: AT2020 is strickly for vocal, it doesn't pick up instrument very well.
TheBooty0512: Yeti is better
TheLowew: during testing, did you get any idea about the "noise cancelling" abilities
of these mics? I'm thinking of abandoning the gaming headset and going
with a headphones / mic setup. I need a mic that will not pick up every
time my family talks or the tv in the next room (for example). Thanks for
HumblePie: i like at 2020
TeamTrollTV: yeti is best :) just got it
Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
