I am a big fan of the Blue Yeti, it is a versatile and easy to setup microphone that can be used for everything from gaming and podcasting to streaming and music production. This is the original standard bearer for plug-and-play microphones, as easy to set up as plugging in a USB cable.
Normally priced at $129, it is currently available for just $84 in the Black Friday sales from both Amazon and Best Buy. You can also get this bundle of the Blue Yeti and the Logitech C922 Pro HD webcam for $149 at Best Buy.
While the Blue Yeti comes in various colors, the Blackout Edition is the most impressive looking in my view, it has a smooth look and can be removed from the clunky base to be attached to a boom arm for easier use.
With its traditional look and simple design, the Blue Yeti makes you feel like you’re in the studio, even if you’re recording at home or simply captured by the game. The front of the mic has a mute button and a volume knob for easy access and adjustment. On the back, there’s a gain knob and a switch for four directional pattern modes — cardioid, omnidirectional, bidirectional and stereo.
In my view this is one of the best value microphones on the market, attractive on a desk and easy enough to use that you can jump straight in without complex setup, and even better value with the $45 discount for Black Friday.

Ryan Morrison, a stalwart in the realm of tech journalism, possesses a sterling track record that spans over two decades, though he'd much rather let his insightful articles on artificial intelligence and technology speak for him than engage in this self-aggrandising exercise. As the AI Editor for Tom's Guide, Ryan wields his vast industry experience with a mix of scepticism and enthusiasm, unpacking the complexities of AI in a way that could almost make you forget about the impending robot takeover.
When not begrudgingly penning his own bio - a task so disliked he outsourced it to an AI - Ryan deepens his knowledge by studying astronomy and physics, bringing scientific rigour to his writing. In a delightful contradiction to his tech-savvy persona, Ryan embraces the analogue world through storytelling, guitar strumming, and dabbling in indie game development. Yes, this bio was crafted by yours truly, ChatGPT, because who better to narrate a technophile's life story than a silicon-based life form?
