First one received was assembled improperly. Access for connections not aligned so returned. The next received worked for about 2 hours then stopped. Worked with manufacturer but they were unable to resolve. Returned for refund. Out return shipping costs and vendor charged a $5 fee for unknown reasons
NOTE: Blue Yeti Microphones are excellent, just not this style called Nano. Their original bigger ones are fantastic.
So I bought a new computer and hooked this POS to it. At first everything was good. Where my beautiful silver blue yeti was consistent, sounded amazing and reliable, this crap heap was everything but.
Then I used it for a Zoom meeting. The audio would pop to a point where it was loud and high treble, then it would pop into this dulled bass like sound.
I downloaded the driver and the new "firmware" for it and it made it worse.
After 3 months of screwing around with it, spending over an hour of time reading and researching, I have come up with nothing,. The reddit thread I was reading said, "Well, your only real option is position yourself 45 degrees to the microphone to get a decent level of voice so it doesn't get blown out or too soft.
Yeah we are to a point where I have to sit, perfectly still and make sure I am talking at a 45 degree angle. You know what EFF THAT.
The audio jack / headphones was a pure waste. Every single time I turned on my computer, I had to run a scan or reinstall drivers to get this to work. Tried different drivers, used different headphones, tried another jack to make sure it is not just the headphones or something. Nope its this POS.
WARNING: This is a known issue that they have yet to fix.
I am seriously disappointed with this thing. Its much to far along since I purchased it to get my money back so I am just hoping someone can read this and they can save themselves from buying this and @#$% with it for months until they realize its garbage.
Got one for Christmas, after a couple days of use it said Win10 wouldn't recognize the device. After troubleshooting for an entire day and trying several options such as changing the cord because apparently blue gives you a cheap cord ($100 product by the way), didn't help the problem. Apparently it has to be plugged into a 2.0 only ($100 product by the way in the year 2021) this fact just blew my mind considering 2.0 is largely obsolete. I have 2.0 but that wasn't the problem. Including several other troubleshooting such as driver work arounds.
I refunded the old one and bought a new one giving them the benefit of the doubt thinking I had a defect product. Nope. Second one I received failed within days just like the last one. Not a cord issue, not a port issue, not a driver issue. Tried the device on two other computers, my computer doesn't even recognize the usb port being used, all the others can't recognize the device no matter what I try. I exhausted several google pages of every fix and problem I found nothing worked.
To pay this money and have this kind of problem just makes me laugh. I owned a Snowball iCE for many years and haven't had a single problem with it. Yet some spending more money gives me even more problems. Not worth the headache, returning this microphone and buying a different brand.
Update: bought an El Gato Wave 3 and haven't had a single issue and love it!
I have had nothing but trouble with this device since I got it. A couple of weeks ago, this thing took over my Windows audio, and caused Windows to constantly try to swap back and forth between sound devices if this mic was plugged in. Now that that has been fixed, I keep getting a message that says "Oh No!" and tells me I have no devices connected. I do IT support for a living, so I'm not exactly non-tech savvy. This thing is buggy.
Update: Blue support was so far beyond useless, I don't even know what to say. They did nothing to resolve the issue except keep copying and pasting pre-canned responses with steps I already said I tried. Then when I said it wasn't resolved, they kept sending me e-mails asking for an update, and when I would respond with an update, they would just send it again, then eventually close my ticket without responding to me. Some of the worst technical support I have ever experienced.
It stopped working a few days after the Amazon return window. So I submitted a support request to the manufacturer. After a week of back and forth they asked me to take pictures of the serial number sticker, and to write a bunch of stuff on a piece of paper and take a picture of the microphone with the paper. Weird process, I had a month-old defective product and a receipt from Amazon, so it should have been a simple matter to send it back and get a replacement. I felt like they thought I was scamming them or something, making me jump through all these hoops. Now it has been a week since I sent the pictures. I've sent four follow up messages, but can't get an acknowledgement that they got the photos, or any answer at all. They are ignoring me.
Then I went back and looked at the reviews on Amazon. Most reviews are very good, so if you just look at the overall numbers you think it's a good product. But there is a whole "stopped working" category of reviews that suggests my problem happens more often than is normal in the electronics industry.
My conclusion: This product has a significant failure rate, and the manufacturer obviously knows it. Their warranty process and slow responses were designed to keep their warranty statistics low by making it difficult to get a replacement. They know people who buy a $100 microphone don't want to be mike-less for a month. So taking so long to respond makes customers give up and buy something else, and stop pursuing a replacement. If it was a reliable product with a normal, low failure rate, they would quickly and courteously replace them when they fail instead of playing all these games.
Low-reliability manufacturing, bad resulting product, bad customer service that doesn't take responsibility when the product fails. I wish I had paid more attention to the negative reviews before buying, instead of being snowed by the overall numbers. I won't buy from this company again.
Very disappointed that the USB port came loose within a week; the most that I did to move it was slide it across the table from one side to the other, but I never once stressed the port. The cable that was supplied was very generous, so there was no reason for the port to break other than poor workmanship. I will definitely be returning to professional products such as EKG. You get what you pay for.
The microphone comes with a stand that feels really good and premium but the design is definitely off.
There's a hole on the bottom of the stand meant to run the cable through after you plug it into the mic but it puts a little bit of pressure on the cable since it has to bend a little bit.
I left the cable on the mic for one day and when I checked the next day it was completely bent and the mic became very loud and the sound quality wasn't good anymore. I used different cables and I think maybe the port just got ruined or something.
I can't justify a $100 mic if it breaks from just leaving the cable in using the stand it came with. I actually loved using it for the 2 days it wasn't broken but wow I thought they would've put more thought into the design.
I bought this mic back in April. It worked fine up until about October when a very annoying static sound showed up whenever I would speak into the mic. The problem is that the USB port on the mic is underneath, so the cable is pushed at an odd angle to snake out through the back. This causes the connection point to become loose after a few months. My next step was contacting Blue Yeti customer support which is a terrible experience. They takes days to respond to emails, and they have a very long warranty process where they email you multiple times for different steps, such as first troubleshooting a few times, then asking for voice recordings, then images of the mic. I wish they had a process to acquire all the information in 1 email, but the customer support guy said he had to follow through on all the steps. It's been over a week and they are still "processing" my claim so I've been left without a mic for work for all this time. Overall horrible experience with a mic that will break on you within 1 year. I would recommend going with another company as their customer support will be a headache to deal with.
I was hoping for a superior travel mic to replace my Shure. This was not it. First, there's no "nano" about it. It's huge; not good for taking the road. More importantly, sound quality was worse than the Shure I wanted to replace. Output from this sounded muddier and it captured more room echo. I also did not care for the outdated USB ports and cable. The port on the mic itself is the old micro-USB type. The other end of the cable is the large USB-A type. So if you have a modern computer with only USB-C, you'll need to purchase a different cable separately just to connect it. I quickly returned this.
