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. At this price, you'll have a hard time finding a better-sounding, better-looking, or more easy-to-use microphone for your computer. Just don't expect the Blue Microphones Snowball to replace a studio's worth of recording gear. The Snowflake USB microphone is more flash than substance, but it's a slick way to outfit your computer with an external microphone. For beginning podcasters and voice chatters, the Logitech USB Desktop Microphone offers good sound quality for a very palatable price.
