  1. First remove the Rubber inside the screwable mount area. This can easily be done with a small screw driver tip or Tweezers. From here you can remove the 3 screws using a #1 Phillips head.

  2. The 4 exterior buttons can be removed with any force such as fingers or any form of pliers. I used my fingers to remove and pull the buttons from their button placement. You will notice there is a lot of give from the mesh and the body.

  3. On this step, you can easily and carefully pull the entire mic mechanism from the protective housing. On the bottom you will see where the Audio port and USB port are if you need to replace them. On this step, you can easily and carefully pull the entire mic mechanism from the protective housing.

  4. If you look tward the mesh and the circuits you will see that it is held by 4x #0 Phillips screws. Carefully remove these and the entire cap will come from the board. There are 3 sets of wire, 1 per condesnser. You will notice that they are pointed sideways making this microphone a side condenser and not a face pointed one.

  5. As seen in the picture, this Microphone cap comes with a internal foam guard to protect the three internal mic condensers. These point outward to the side of the mic making this mic more useful from the side and not pointed at the users itself.

  6. If you need to disconnect the microphone cap from the board, pay close attention to the connections.
    • If you need to disconnect the microphone cap from the board, pay close attention to the connections.

    • There are 3 condenser, therefore 3 pairs of wires connect to the board, each with their own wire color (black & white, black & red and black & blue)

    • Pick a position from where to look at the board and take notes of the position of each connector. This is important, since it will directly affect the PATTERN MODES selected in the back side of the mic.

And what if i want to do the opposite?

For example, you removed the down part of the yeti, I wanna remove just the top. How can I do that?

Dino - Reply

You have to remove the bottom to unscrew the top from the inside.

Thank you for this Guide. I might use it to custom paint my Yeti when I get it.

this is a bit of a long shot. but any idea on a replacement part# / source for the 3.5mm barrel jack on one of these?

Joe Romo - Reply

Try searching on e.g. ebay for “3 pin pcb mount female 3.5mm jack”

The plug is a standard part, so it should be readily available. I replaced my plug with a scavanged part that I happened to have on hand!
