Chipped my brand new Blue Yeti

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, very shortly after I took my brand new blue yeti out of the box, and moved the mic up, the mic part fell over, leaving a small chip in the ceramic :/

 

Can I fix this at all?


My rig & setup: Ryzen 1600 | MSI B350 PC-Mate | 16gb Corsair Vengeance  128gb Samsung 840 Pro | 250gb Samsung 850 EVO | 4tb Seagate Barracuda | Gigabyte GTX 1080 | White NZXT S340 Elite| EVGA G3 650W | TP-Link Archer T9e ac1900 | Logitech Z313 | G502 Proteus Spectrum | Strafe RGB | 27" 1440p144hz Dell Monitor 2x 23" Acer 1080p 23" IPS | Blue Yeti Blackout Edition | Steam Controller | Sennheiser HD 598 SE | iPhone 6s 64gb

My Mac: Late 2013 $1300 model

My Laptop: Surface Book with i5-6300u, 256gb PCIe SSD, 8gb Ram, Custom Nvidia 940m GPU w/ 1gb vram

 

When I was 13, I funded $1060 into my rig, all out of my own wallet. That's hardcore dedication m8's.

Small chips in things are generally very difficult to fix. I'd say just live with it.


I actually couldn't underclock my 5 year old GPU to make it as slow as a next-gen console.

Would it be returnable, it was kinda my mistake but it's brand new ._.

Normally you can return items without them asking, but this is bad business practice. I would personally live with the small chip, but if you feel like that chip is shortening your life span; try returning it.

Depends on the return policy of the place you bought it at. Unless it's really bothering you I wouldn't return it.

Would be nice if you posted a photo of the chip, perhaps one of us here could advise you on how to repair it.

Quickly! Return it while you still can and get an at2020usb instead! :P

 

 

I doubt you'd be able to repair the chip, so it's pretty much either return it and get another or a different mic, or live with it.

Depending on how big the chip is it he could end up needing some ducktape and some spray pain (i am joking please don't head my advice) 

 

But to @Knaj  thats a bummer but i think that in general damage you caused to it isnt covered in the warranty (if it has one). You might be able to return it but personaly i would just live with it...

 

Side note i feel like ive seen an infomercial about something that fixes chips but idk

You mean something like this?  I'm waiting to see a photo of the chipped area before suggesting what to use.
