AmazonBasics their own USB Condenser Microphone to compete against the success of the Blue Yeti Microphone. With many people getting into podcasting, they need a microphone, and Blue Yeti has dominated for years, but now Amazon could put a pause on that.
The AmazonBasics USB Condenser Microphone include a 3 condenser capsules for 4 different recording patterns: cardioid, bidirectional, omnidirectional, and stereo. It also includes a metal stand, which Blue Yeti does as well.
Which is better? Well the BlueYeti microphone family is including audio editing software which puts them ahead of the competition. The prices are pretty close and competitive between the two. I would still use BlueYeti, but AmazonBasics might be a force to be reckon with.
AmazonBasics is Amazon’s private label brand for everything from kitchen gadgets to tech accessories — and everything in between. The brand originally focused on small, relatively inexpensive products, according to Tinuiti.
BlueYeti is audio hardware company that produces microphone products from all price levels. According to their site, they are, “THE WORLD’S #1 USB MICROPHONE”.
