Which USB Microphone should I get for streaming? Blue Yeti vs AirPods Pro

• 2 min read

Recently I wanted to upgrade my microphone setup, because I found that audio recordings on my AirPods Pro were good, but not great.


AirPods Pro

I absolutely love the AirPods Pro.

Best purchase I have ever made.

I use these more than any other device, in more flexible settings (home, gym, outdoors, shopping, work, etc) and pairs very nicely with Apple Watch when out-and-about.

I probably use these for more than 6 hours every day. They last, they’re very portable, easy to run with, great for video conferencing, and more.

But when I wanted to record some tutorial videos, I had two problems:


Blue Yeti USB Microphone

When I bought the Blue Yeti, I knew I was getting a quality device.

I’m certain it’s not the best, but very good value for money.

Something like this also has a timeless design, and looks great on my desk.

It’s beautiful.

I bought this for about $240 from EB Games, because JB Hifi were out of stock. Then an hour later, when I was buying an adaptor from Officeworks, I noticed it was listed for $190 – a big price difference. A big profit margin?

However, compared to the internal microphone in MacBook Pro 2017, it’s a significantly better recording quality.

I’m looking forward to using this with video conferencing and giving my ears a rest from always using AirPods Pro.
