If you are using a Blue Yeti microphone to record live streams and podcasts, it’s a good idea to pair it with a pop filter.
Not only does a pop filter help to filter out plosive sounds and some sibilance, it also protects your Blue Yeti from saliva droplets during recording sessions.
However, not all pop filters are compatible with the Blue Yeti due to its non-standard base design. To help you find the pop filters that can attach specifically to the Blue Yeti’s base, we have compiled this list below.
Best Blue Yeti Pop Filters
While you can probably use any pop filter with a Blue Yeti microphone, here are some pop filters that are fully compatible with the Blue Yeti mic.
1. Knox Gear Pop Filter
The Knox Gear pop filter is specially designed for Blue Yeti mics.
What we like about this pop filter is that it caters specifically to the Blue Yeti’s non-standard base design which traditional pop guard clamps find difficult to attach to. The clamp for this pop guard is flat instead of curved so that it will sit directly against the Yeti’s stand.
The screen is 6 inches in diameter and is designed to diffuse bursts of air even if the source isn’t directly in front the microphone (which by the way, you should be sitting in directly in front of the Blue Yeti mic for the best sound performance).
The pop screen is also mounted on a flexible gooseneck arm which allows you to position it wherever you need it to be. The arm is also 14 inches long and is easily bendable without losing its position.
I like the fact that this pop filter comes with a little padding on both surfaces of the clamp which protects your Blue Yeti stand.

2. PEMO Tech 6 Pop Filter
If you are looking for a budget pop filter that is compatible with the Blue Yeti stand, the PEMO Tech 6 is a great choice.
This package comes as a combo with both the pop filter and a windscreen cover for Blue Yeti or Blue Yeti Pro microphones to help you get the best protection and vocal recording quality.
The round pop filter has a table mounting clamp that can fit onto the Blue Yeti base and a 360 degree goose-neck design.
Another thing that stands out is that this pop filter is double layered – it has a double layer of mesh which can block air blasts effectively and reduce plosive sounds from any remaining air pressure. The windscreen wrap arounds the mic, also effectively eliminating hissing sounds.
The windscreen is made from high-density foam and can also reduce breath sounds and pops during live podcasts.
Apart from Blue Yeti, the foam windscreen can fit any 2.5” diameter microphone easily.
Because this pop filter is so affordable and comes as a combo with a windscreen for Blue Yeti, it remains out top recommendation.

3. Aokeo Professional Pop Filter
The Aokeo Professional pop filter is a dual layer pop filter designed for Blue Yeti mics.
With two layers of filtering, this pop filter will ensure that you are podcasts are clean.
The first screen blocks air blasts from the mouth, while the gap in between the filters disperses remaining air pressure. By the time the air passes through the second screen, the blast is contained and the plosive sounds are reduced.
One thing that stands out with the Aokeo is that they use steel metal goosenecks rather than cheap plastic ones. This gives it a better quality and keeps the filter in place. You can also adjust the angle and distance between the screen and microphone during recording sessions.
At the end of the gooseneck arm is an adjustable screw rotating clamp with a scratch-proof gripper that allows a variety of tabular mounting positions.
Compared to other pop filters, the Aokeo pop filter acts as an amplifying modifier which tones down plosive sounds while allowing normal speech to “pass through” without dampening the higher frequencies.
They are fully compatible with Blue Yeti microphones – check them out here:
4. Auphonix Pop Filter
If you are looking for a tried and tested budget option for Blue Yeti, the Auphonix pop filter is also another great choice.
This pop filter features a double-mesh screen which filters out plosives while maintaining the quality of your voice. The pop shield screen disperses air pressure from the mouth, protecting the microphone from bursts of air and saliva.
It’s a simple pop filter with an adjustable gooseneck. The design is stable and mounts securely to the Blue Yeti stand, and it has a fully rotational arm so you can adjust the position.
It also has an adjustable clasp that can fit on surfaces up to 1.75” and connects directly to the edge of the table or desk or Blue Yeti stand.
Overall it’s a cheap and good budget option, and it’s worth checking out.
5. InnoGear Pop Filter
The InnoGear is another dual-screen pop filter that is fully compatible with Blue Yeti mics.
Like other pop filters, it comes with an adjustable screw rotating clamp with a gripper that can secure to any mounting boom or mic stand (with a maximum diameter of 1.6 inches).
The pop filter also comes with an easily dismountable swivel mount that allows you to disconnect it quickly.
The gooseneck is 360 degree flexible and made from metallic material that keeps the pop filter at the same angle and position throughout recording sessions.
While there’s practically no difference between the Auphonix and InnoGear pop filter, it’s worth checking them out as well:
6. HDE Pop Filter
The HDE Pop filter is designed to product loud and clear recordings while eliminating popping sounds on the Blue Yeti.
Again, this Pop Filter is specifically designed for Blue Yeti (see the diagram on how to attach the pop filter to the Blue Yeti stand). The pop filter also acts as a barrier which reduces corrosion and saliva droplets to extend the microphone’s life.
This pop filter allows for flexible setup options – it has a 360 degree flexible gooseneck holder which will support the weight of the shield and allow for free positioning without changing position midway.
The adjustable clamp fits the Blue Yeti’s stand, but can also be attached to all types of microphone stands and USB microphones. The 2” screw on clamp is easily attachable and will not damage the microphone.
Overall, it’s a great pop filter for Blue Yeti that you can find on a budget.

7. Yeti Nano Mic Pop Filter
The Yeti Nano is another pop filter specifically designed for Blue Yeti mics and effectively eliminates plosives from the recordings.
Unlike other pop filters, this pop filter comes with 3 LAYERS of screen-shield layered steel mesh at the front and back, with a layered foam windscreen in the middle.
You can be assured that this pop filter will DEFINITELY eliminate almost all plosive sounds, however due to multiple layering, this may have a knock-on effect on high-frequencies.
It comes with a 360 degree flexible gooseneck which is strong and pliable, and keeps in place at any angle during record sessions. The clamp is designed to be flat and grasp the stand firmly without any damage.

8. Foam Windscreen for Blue Yeti
Now if you are just looking for a foam windscreen without a layered pop filter for your Blue Yeti, this can be a good option.
This windscreen is designed to fit both the Blue Yeti and Yeti Pro, and is also compatible with other condenser microphones with up to 2.5 inches in diameter.
The windscreen is made from good quality foam materials and helps to filter out harsh ‘p’ and ‘t’ sounds together with popping noises. They are also ideal for protecting your mic against saliva and moisture damage.
A word of caution though – foam windscreens aren’t particularly effective in filtering out plosives due to the fact that it doesn’t really eliminate air pressure around the mic. But it can still serve as an effective protection in combination with a dedicated pop filter.
