The Bottom Line The Yeti is one of the richest sounding, sonically flexible USB microphones money can buy, but its large size makes it inconvenient for portable applications. For beginning podcasters and voice chatters, the Logitech USB Desktop Microphone offers good sound quality for a very palatable price. The Snowflake USB microphone is more flash than substance, but it's a slick way to outfit your computer with an external microphone.
