The Yeti Pro might just be the finest USB microphone made to date. Combining 24-bit/192 kHz digital recording resolution with analog XLR output, this microphone records at a clarity levels up to four times that found on CDs, all in the convenience of a USB compatible device. There is also a built-in headphone amplifier for zero-latency monitoring, and direct controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, mute, and microphone gain.
Why it's cool: If you're an aspiring podcaster or a Youtuber who loves uploading your latest musical interpretations then you understand the value of a clean, crisp recording. The Yeti Pro offers exactly that. Now, the price tag will scare off some consumers who will be wary of shelling out two bills for a USB microphone and certainly the Yeti is probably overkill for those just looking for a solution to make Skype calls to their relatives overseas. However, if you're serious about recording professional sounding audio at home there is absolutely no better option for a combination of quality and convenience.
