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




What do you think about this video?

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 car sounds

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

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

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

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

TeamTrollTV: yeti is best :) just got it

MarauderShields: For quick comparison: 2:00 Blue Yeti 2:14 Blue Snowball 2:25 AT2020

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

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.

Kryvox: Getting the Audio-Technica AT2020.

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.

Bizin: I like audio technica because it's smaller

Jake Craft: Can u use this for xbox

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?

sirprincy: AT2020 in my opinion sounds so much better.

Pc Power Gaming Nexus: 2020 wins

UberMCGraphics: Does the audio technica have a mute button?

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

RecHasRecorder: i have a snowball and i love it

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.

Rk9 Productions: god snowball shounds crap

SVAFnemesis: AT2020 is strickly for vocal, it doesn't pick up instrument very well.

Sol Wynne: AT2020 was the best

MakeUSayDERP: Blue Yeti IS DEFINITELY BETTER 

SJ Plays (VideoGames): The snowball is very quiet

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

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

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 any help.

xXTheDDude3Xx: Instead of the AT2020, i got the AT2500 because of the headphone jack and beacuse it was cheaper

nick w: wow at2020 sounds better imo the fidelity in the voice sounded so much more deep and crisp picking it up.

Steponas Sab: Yeati

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

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

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

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

ObbeepS: i got yeti

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

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

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.

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

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

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

Serqols - Heavy Channel Development Undergoing: might get the yeti

THT YoloSwag: samsong c10u

IAmTheIronHulk: Yeti is best. I asked for the snowball today for my birthday. I should said yeti

HumblePie: i like at 2020

Teen Tesla: WOW the snowball is quite!

NILLANist: Yeti ofc

Hair Do: Thanks for the tip. I do know it's hard to earn money. But it is much better than working minimum wage at mcdonolds. Being an hair stylist does get tips and I end up making decent money. Plus it allows me to be creative sometimes and make customer's dream come to reality.
