USB Mic Shootout: Review & Audio Comparison - Blue Yeti Vs Snowball Vs Audio Technica AT2020




What do you think about this video?

Shayd: 1:Yeti 2:Technica 3:Snowball 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.

Jake Craft: Can u use this for xbox

hashtaglogic: can the snow ball be put on a different microphone stand?

Apple Squared²: Im choosing between AT2020 ($130) and Blue Yeti ($95 sale) and buying from Amazon.... Please help.

Sarcastic Klein: I wish I had watched this video before buying the snowball...

Bizin: I like audio technica because it's smaller

Xzysts: The snowball isn't bad! It actually sounds pretty good!

Sam Meyers: the blue snowball obviously sounds a little cheaper, and a little more muddy

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 volume

sirprincy: AT2020 in my opinion sounds so much better.

REPSAAJ: Lol? my audio technica at202 does have a audio input lol

TheScreamingBlaze: The reign of the Yeti has begun.

df393: owned and tried them both. at2020 is better for recording music but blue yeti is better for recording voice, audiobooks and podcasts. at2020 is a bit more faithful to your voice though can be flat. blue yeti adds a tinge of bass to it to make it sound more dynamic

TeamTrollTV: yeti is best :) just got it

DragonNest101DoesMCAndSF2: the middle mic is better than yeti and snowball but im going to buy yeti because i think it sound loud

Steponas Sab: Yeati

Chivio: What would you recommend if I do commentaries on the xbox 360 and have my desktop in a different room? Would I have to run a usb extension cable?

kevin strackke: i got my blue yeti for 75 dollars!!! works like a charm!

ObbeepS: i got yeti

Kryvox: Getting the Audio-Technica AT2020.

Al Breaker: which mic is best for making a voice over? without capturing backround sound?

Andy Ramirez: I got myself the Blue Snowball because it's actually $50 dollars now which is a great deal for a good sounding mic. The Blue Yeti is still more expensive than the Snowball but it's a lot better and a whole lot bigger so keep that in mind. The Snowball sounds great if it's closer. Jonathon recorded about a foot away from the mic which is pretty far but if you get closer you definitely get a more rich and smooth sounding voice so if you're Skyping or on Oovoo then it's great or if you're playing online or something. Anyways this is just my opinion, it's a solid mic for a great price!

vDeparture: I bought the snowball. I regret it fully! It picks up background noise on all settings. I would buy the AudioTechnica AT2020.

giorgi arkev: yeti is crap shayd shut the freak up mothafukka, technia 1 yeti 2 snowball 3

ThatGuyLiam - Random Gaming at it's Finest!: Interesting the blue yeti and snowball sounded almost the same, just a difference in volume. 

TechKing: I can't tell a difference between the snowball and yeti

James Snape: The at2020 wins

ToxicReaper3: The yeti has low volume and you usually need to be really close to it for it to pick up more sound and even then sometimes it's still quiet. I think the AT2020 has a very crisp, clean, and good quality sound but it has a slight sound in the back that I don't know how to describe. The Yeti is not as crisp in sound but it is still of a good quality. But overall I personally think the AT2020 is better in sound quality. 

carfemt: til now, the best comparison video about usc mics.. thanks men

MrKnowit712: Blue Yeti won, But i like the Yeti and the Audio Technica AT2020. They're both great mics.

RecHasRecorder: i have a snowball and i love it

Pc Power Gaming Nexus: 2020 wins

Rico Martinez: I don't like the Blue Snowbal lname :D

ElliottDoesMC: I would say the blue snowball is better because it has good quality and it is a low price

TheTrollx101: at does

PlatinumPixels: I just bought a blue yeti and i'm having some problems with it. When i plug it in my computer will recognize it, but it wont pick up any audio. the indicator light wont turn on, and i've installed all the right drivers and stuff. If you can help me at all i'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks

Jack Lassiter: I prefer the snowball, actually, I like it because I do talk louder than the average person, the snowball is a good choice because it isn't as loud, unless you accidentally had the volumes set differently. Also I like the looks of the snowball, it's the only one that doesn't look like a pickle... just sayin'...

MrBaconman29: they all sound great some are just louder than others

Willow: Yeti is the best.

MCPE Gaming: I got the blue snowball :D

Hairy Canary: Blue Yeti is a lot more crisp, the Audio Technica sadly has like a faint feedback noise, you'll hear it if you listen carefully. So the Yeti seems a lot more professional here.

ThatGamerGuy: yeti wins hands down 

TheRichyRichPie: I'm getting my Audio Technica set from amozon and the set is $210.00$ but it got great reviews 

TheReconJacob: Yeti is best obviously, but the snowball is better than the audio technica because it has more features, and the mic quality is just as good, only quieter, if you turn the volume up it will sound the same. It works rubbish with audacity though because the sound output is so quiet

alexisfaith1987: u cud have done like CaneMajor - comparison between SM57 and P 170.

Ruskie: Blue Yeti

sofia oliveira: audio technical sounded better!! and louder

Harry Livesley: (blue snowball)so wait, if i want to get rid of background noise i can set it so that it only picks up sounds in my general direction?

Tony Tony: I got the 2020 for $100

Winston Ralphs: I have the snowball. It's a decent microphone, but I think I might invest in that yeti, it sounds really good. The AT is good too, but I prefer the sound of the yeti.

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
