Best USB Microphone ever! sounds repetitive. But it is true. While podcasting would be fun, one overlooked use is for dictation. Do you spend hundreds of dollars on microphones? from Samson, Phillips SpeechMike, Plantronics, and many others. NONE of them are consistent. NOW! You have decided the microphone quality is generally quite poor, as is noise rejection. They are generally poorly directional, having immense shifts in frequency response depending on how off-axis you are. This radically affects recognition with even a few degrees of off-axis speech.

The Yeti, on the other hand, is a very high fidelity microphone, it has tunable directionality, and maintains balance when even significantly off-axis. I set it on my desk and can dictate with the best fidelity and accuracy I have ever experienced with Dragon. Dragon now is actually useful. And…it looks way cool on my desk!
