This week, the California company just added another model to the line. Yeti Nano shrinks the form factor of Blue’s most popular line into something for more economically accessible. At $99, the new microphone slots in between the Snowball ($49/$69) and the new and even smaller Raspberry ($199). T...

Blue's Yeti Nano Is a Shrunken Down Version of the Popular Podcasting and YouTuber Mic

The prefix nano calls to mind something microscopic. Tiny robots invisible to the eye, or an iPod many orders smaller than its predecessors. When I hear the word I expect tiny. Apparently when Blue, the respected studio microphone maker that has spent nearly a decade producing great USB mics, hears the word nano it…Read more...

Logitech acquires Blue Microphones to boost its audio hardware business

Logitech is growing its list of hardware brands with the acquisition of California-based Blue Microphones for $117 million in an all-cash deal. That’s huge for Blue, which was founded in 1995 and has become a household name in audio equipment, thanks to its popular Yeti and Snowball microphones for studio recording, podcasting, and streaming. The company also makes some pretty good headphones; I also had a chance to review its Raspberry mobile mic, and came away impressed. I’ve found most of Blu...

Logitech is buying Blue Microphones

Logitech today announced its intention to acquire Blue Microphones, the hardware company behind popular podcasting microphones like the Yeti and Snowball. It’s a pretty logical acquisition, as far as these things goog –Logitech already operates in the audio space, with speakers and gaming headsets. The acquisition of Blue would add an important dimension to that category and help the company take on a rapidly expanding space. Blue’s best known products aren’t high-end, exactly, but they’ve be...

Blue’s new mic boom seems an obvious accessory for the DIY age

It’s a fairly mundane thing – it’s a boom arm for a microphone. But Blue’s latest accessory, aimed at desktop computer users, seems ripe as DIY publishing starts to think audio. There’s certainly no absence of gear and toys now aimed at streaming and broadcasting, a market that now covers everything from podcasting to game streaming. But most of that has focused on video, and ignored sound. And strangely enough, while there are all kind of floor booms, boom mics and shocks that sit next to you...

Blue debuts wireless headphones with a built-in amp and noise canceling

 I was a bit cautious when Blue debuted its first set of headphones. I’m not sure why, exactly, but it’s always hard to say how a company known for something specific will transition into a new – albeit related – category. Turns out there was really nothing to worry about. Like the company’s various microphones, all of its headphone offerings have been pretty… Read More

Blue’s latest podcasting mic goes super portable

 Blue Raspberry brings to mind Slurpees as much as anything. The name of Blue Microphone’s latest offering is seeming an homage to its longstanding Blueberry condenser mic, but then, between the Snowball, the Spark, the Tiki and the Yeti, there’s seemingly no rhyme or reason to the microphone’s naming conventions. What the company does have, however, is some real clout… Read More

Blue’s Yeti USB mic will ship with a copy of ‘Watchdogs 2’ for some reason

 I’ve always considered Blue’s USB microphones a podcasting tool – and I suspect Blue has, as well. They’re easy to use, they sound good and they’re affordable. Heck, I recorded my bit of the last TechCrunch podcast on a Snowball. The mics have also made a splash in the gaming the community, presumably for all of the reasons mentioned above. To really drive the… Read More

Reflector 2 Now Adds Screen Recording

While I was attending the ISTE 2015 conference I had a chance to visit the AirSquirrels Booth and find out what was new. As a long time user of Reflector, I was excited to find out that Reflector 2, now included the ability to record audio and video. This was one feature which I have been hoping for - for some time now. In the past I would generally use a screen capturing software to record the audio and video which at times produced less then a high quality recording. When I got back from...
