Blue launched a new version of the Yeti microphone, the Yeti X, shown below. The device is being targeted at gaming, streaming and podcasting, but the signature new feature is VO!CE Software, which gives creators and streamers professional voice effects and presets at the touch of a button. Internally, it features a four-capsule condenser microphone array, and it offers high-res LED metering. The presets and effects mentioned above are controlled through a a multi-function smart knob. It ships in October for $169.99.
Logitech is expanding its foothold in the audio market again by purchasing microphone and audio gear maker Blue in a US$117 million deal.
I want to love these headphones so much, but a couple of problems might make you think twice about pulling the trigger on the investment.
