  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.

  5. 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 Mic receiver. You will notice that they are pointed sideways making this microphone a side receiver and not a face pointed one.

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

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.

Anyone know where I can get replacement parts?

Can the internal foam guard be taken out of the microphone mesh, so that they both can be washed, cleaned, and dried separately?

This would be great for those who want to buy a used Blue Yeti microphone.

This article answers part of my question:

I wouldn’t worry to much about taking the foam out. You will more than likely need to just wash it by running soapy water through it or dumping it into a soap bath and then I would use a fan to dry it.

Lucet. . 28 minutes ago (edited). . I found a video that shows that removing the internal foam from the microphone grill/mesh is possible

I have a blue yeti with distorted audio from the mic. Any idea which component may have failed? I'm guessing there's an encoder or amplifier IC on the board which would be a good guess but not too sure on these things

Matthew Owst - Reply

Yeah my Blue just blew I think. The recordings are chopped in half (one of mics is clean). The other sounds clipped/distorted/robotic/digital. So the audio curve is lopsided: the lower half looks correct, the upper half is flattened and nearly dead.
