Review: Blue’s Yeti Nano USB Microphone for Recording and Streaming

If you fancy yourself as a gamer, podcaster or Youtube streamer, then check out the latest offering from Blue’s #1 selling USB microphone family – the Yeti Nano.

It comes in a range of fabulous colours – the Cubano Gold, as seen below, particularly stands out but it’s also available in Shadow Grey, Red Onyx and Vivid Blue. Personally, I love all of these colours.

But it’s the clarity of sound that makes these microphones the perfect tool for broadcasters to easily record and stream with high quality audio. With a 20-year history as a leading innovator in audio technology, the maker Blue is an industry leader when it comes to producing microphones.

Compact in size and perfect for sitting on your desk, the Yeti Nano is both a small and powerful USB microphone.

Inspired by the #1-selling Blue Yeti microphone, Yeti Nano features a plug ‘n play operation for instant streaming with your PC or Mac. Additional benefits include controls for pickup pattern selection, headphone volume, and mic mute features.

Reasonably priced at $159.95, it will bring your next Gaming session, Skype chat or any plans to record and stream content to a new level.


Exceptional sound is expected nowadays and the Yeti Nano supports high-quality 24-bit/48kHz recording so users can give their podcast or video truly professional production value.

Featuring two pickup-pattern controls directly on the mic, users are given the flexibility to record a single source or multiple sources at once. Cardioid mode records sources that are directly in front of the microphone and is perfect for podcasts with a single host podcasters or a multi-person interview on a podcast. 

It’s worth also tapping into the all-new Blue Sherpa companion app which features quick and direct control options from your desktop to help you get the most from your mic. Mute and unmute the mic and headphones, fine-tune gain and levels, switch polar patterns, and change sample rates all within the app. Sherpa also downloads firmware updates directly to the Yeti Nano, seamlessly keeping users up to date.


The Yeti Nano also features a built-in metal stand with easy angle adjustment and is compatible with Blue’s Radius III shock mount and Compass boom arm.
