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




What do you think about this video?

adeledr: But the Yeti looks like a pencil :((

LBCvalenz562: It's everyone deaf? At2020 is the better microphone.

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

Dezzlor: for people who only wanted blue yeti vs AT2020 sound quality Blue Yeti: 2:00 AT2020: 2:24

ballsonacat: I bought the at2035 and it didn't come with that stand and I really want that one hahaha does anyone know where I could get it separate? o:

Rk9Productions!: god snowball shounds crap

NewbiestNoob: Damn, how do you not get any echo-ing on the at2020? I have a small room, but it echos like crap.

rihasanat rofolo: The yeti sounds much better! Some people may think the Audio technica sounds better only because it was shown right after the snowball. This makes it sound like a huge difference. But if you go from the Yeti directly to the Technica you'll see that the Yeti is superior.

Mars búarnir: i am getting yeti soon and the yeti sounds best :)

Mehmet Ali Çalik: At2020 sounds better but the extra features of the yeti makes it better in my opinion. Anyone thinks the same?

Kattensimba: If i get a blue yeti and i play csgo and i Skype with my friends Can They hear my game like when i shot

Isaac YT: I have the AT2020 USB it works really well I did have the snowball before I my other mic yeti sucks

adrian khazaiy: Thanks for your help but I'm still thinking which has best sound record quality if you could tell me which best for sound it would be much appreciated, thanks

Xeckogames | Gaming: I would definitely go with the Audio Technica because it sounds a bit more natural and I love the colour

BossManiacGames: The snowball seemed the best to me. Seemed clear and not to loud compared to the other ones 

Mehmet Ali Çalik: Does yeti pick up a kot of background noise

VidOn: Getting the snowball tomorow and im just going to put the gain to 10 - 15. Should boost it so much than the Trust Starzz Microphone for £12.

JackYT: Would i need to buy a pop filter for the blue snowball and if so which one?

Eron Constante: I still wonder why you haven't hit a million subscribers mate.

Robb Gorringe: I just bought a black snowball mic today, and my iphone mic sounds better than this. 

KjalliZ ᴴᴰ: Think I'm gonna go with the Audio-Technica AT2020

PullUrSlip: I have the AT2020 microphone and have experienced some issues with it. Every now and then if I'm doing a continuous voice overlay (about 6 minutes in length) the audio will have a 4-5 second cut out every few minutes. It is very frustrating as sometimes the section that does not get recorded is in the middle of a key point of interest to the video. I don't know why it does this, I have had this issue ever since I bought it. Not sure if I just have a faulty microphone, but I have not seen a large number of posts stating it being common in most AT 2020's. Just thought you all should know if you are considering spending the $100 (roughly) on either the AT2020 or the Blue Yeti. With my experience with the AT 2020 and he hours of frustration it has put me through I would have preferred the Blue Yeti microphone over the AT2020. I wish I had done more research before purchasing the AT2020, I most likely would have chose the Blue Yeti as it has more options as well as the earphone plug in to hear yourself when recording. Hope this helps future buyers. Please do not go purchase one of these microphones from just watching this one video, do your research!

Aidan Campbell: I think the audio technica sounds 5he best

Gobthor: i got a big snag on the audio technica headphones for 30 dollars!

mazinais31: that's why you buy the AT2020+ ... which has some controls on it...

Amir: The Yeti and the AT2020 sounded the same. They are the better microphones but the Snowball is meh...anyway, the Samson CO3U or CO1U is better than all of them for voice recording.

Preps Etcetera: Jonathan, I have the blue Yeti on my desktop PC. When I want to do a Snagit video capture of something I want to comment on, I get a lot of background noise from the PC fan. What can be done to help reduce background noise. I have it set to the proper carded mike setting.

Will COMMENTS: Did you edit the mic audio?

Younggrasshoppa: How on earth does Yeti win if it's clearer and has so many more features?

Clinic_4_Gamers_115 -_-: The AT2020 Isnt so great! It takes a lot of background sounds! the snowball is the best considering the price

Mongo Mupps: AT2020 sounds great!

br: $100+ for a USB mic? lol

Coalminds.com: Blue Yeti sounds great, I needed to find one for voiceover work for my cartoon so this was a great demo, thanks. Technica seems a little boomy.

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.

Vatiicus: I think the Audio Technica AT2020 sounds better

NickonAquaMagna: The snowball may be quieter, but the quality still sounds fine.

illuminati: the problem of the AT2020 is that it peaked when saying the word AT2020.

James Nixon: The At2020 and blue yeti both sound great. I have an audio interface so am going to get the at2020 xlr version as its like half the price then the usb version

Ahmad Adam: Thank You Man !!! <3

oʇɐǝq ʎǝlᴉɐq: Do you think it is worth upgrading to the Yeti Pro? Money isn't really an issue.

geekgamerlamer: I have the xlr version of the at2020 and with the right settings and a pop filter it actually sounds better than the yeti in this video

ViperCandyYT: I think AT2020 sounds the best and the snowball sounds nice just quiet :-) but all sound nice

Loyal™: I use a Snowball to talk to people online, then a Blue Nessie for commentaries.

Lennart N: Yeti is most balanced and most pleasant to my ears, Snowball is a bit muffled but still good, AT is brightest.

MCA Plays: Don't get the blue snowball, I have it and on mode 1 and 3 it picks up a bunch of background noise, on mode 2 u can't even hear your voice

ljgmdad: The 2020 is the clear winner. 

Spec-Ops Medcomm: How does the blue yeti compare to the Samson G track USB mic?

://about _blank: 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.

Samuel Chernow: Hey guys. Really need your help. So basically, I need a mic for skits and stuff. I can't use a shotgun because my dSLR doesn't have a 3.5 mm jack input. What I am going to do is get an adapter for my iPad so that i can plug the mic into the iPad and record the video from my camera. I was looking at mic's to do so, and I saw the Blue Yeti. I see a lot of people gaming with it, but wanted to know if it would still be good if me and maybe one other person were doing skits and the mic was 3-4 feet away? Would it still pick it up in moderate to good quality? If not, do you have any other mic suggestions that are around the same price but are good for recording things like skits? Thank you!

HazE: Guys, could you tell me, i've heard that these usb microphones doesn't depend on soundcards? In other words the quality of the recorded voice can't be improved or degraded with the soundcard. Am i right? For me Audio Technica sounds better.
