Black Friday microphone deal: Blue Yeti USB mic

Blue Microphones Yeti

Need a good microphone for your streaming, Skyping, or singing needs? The Blue Microphones Yeti USB Mic is a rock solid option, and thanks to the sales smorgasbord/Capitalism Gone Wild that is Black Friday, it's currently half-price on Amazon at just $75.

The Yeti features a tri-capsule array and multiple pattern recording that enables quality recordings in nearly any situation. It has a built-in gain control, a dedicated mute button, and a "zero-latency headphone output," so you can monitor your work without having to run another cable all the way over to the other side of the room. (Or, you know, wherever.) I don't know what half that stuff means, but the bottom line is that it's a really good microphone: It boasts a 4.5/5 rating over more than 3100 user reviews on Amazon, and we quite like the one we have in the office.

Be sure to keep an eye on our Black Friday deal-o-rama megapost for this and other solid deals all weekend long.
