Want to start making videos for YouTube or TikTok? Then you need a good mic, and if you're working on a budget you need one that won't break the bank. The Blue Yeti Nano is a USB mic that's on sale for $59.99 at Target in Shadow Grey. The same mic is $100 in other colors, and that's what it goes for at other retailers for the most part. The next best price is $90 at Amazon, and previous deals have usually only seen it drop to around $70. This is a great deal, and it's highly likely that will sell out sooner than later. Despite having been around for a couple of years now, deals on the Yeti Nano have been few and far between because it's already so affordable.
The Blue Yeti Nano can actually work with a lot of different things in addition to YouTube and TikTok. Use it to record your voice for your podcast, video games, Skype or Zoom, and more. You could even record instruments and other non-vocal devices. Whatever sounds you want to put out there for all the world to see.
Thanks to the headphone output, you can monitor your audio with zero latency and control the volume. There's also a button for muting the mic altogether if you want. The mic has two pickup patterns, omnidirectional and cardioid. The cardioid pattern is one of the most common for people working from a computer since it's designed to not pickup sounds coming from behind the mic, which is great if you don't want to pickup the typing of your keyboard while you're talking.
The mic is compatible with both Mac and Windows. You can plug it in and easily get going without the need for any extra drivers or software. Blue covers the Yeti Nano with a one-year warranty.
