If you need a new high-quality microphone then you might want to check out Blue's latest USB microphone -- the new Yeti X. Check out the overview video below:

Blue's new Yeti X has one new superpower: its new real-time LED metering on the microphone itself, which will show you when your gain is too low during a livestream or recording. The huge knob on the front of the Yeti X is the new command center, where you'll be able to tweak it between its three internal modes.

You'll be able to hold the knob (sounds weird, but you know what I mean -- get your head out of the gutter) for two seconds to flex between modes, while the other controls the volume. You can also use blend mode, which will balance between gameplay audio and your commentary, both requiring different voice pitches and levels.

The new Blue Yeti X will work with Windows and macOS as well as Android devices with a USB-C connector. It'll launch next month for $170.
