updated 05:55 pm EST, Tue November 10, 2009

Mic offers four patterns for recording flexibility

Blue Microphones has expanded its line of consumer products with the Yeti, a USB-attached condenser mic with THX certification. The mic features three of the company's 14mm condenser capsules arranged in a triple array, with support for omni, cardioid, stereo or bidirectional polar patterns. Users can attach headphones directly to the 16 ohm, 130mW amp for direct zero-latency monitoring.

The microphone supports 48 kHz sample rates at 16bit rates, while the frequency range extends from 20Hz to 20kHz with a sensitivity of 4.5mV/Pa at 1kHz. An integrated desk-stand allows users to angle the mic without using a dedicated stand.

The Yeti carries an MSRP of $150 and will be available in December from outlets such as Apple, CompUSA, Fry's, and Guitar Center, among others.
