Black Friday does not let up with its onslaught of amazing deals, and while it may be tough to sift through an endless barrage of discounts without being sure what exactly you want to buy, once in a while a deal comes around that's perfectly suited to recommend based on personal experience.

Enter the Blue Yeti X, a microphone I purchased two years ago now and have been gleefully using since. While my own one had a bunch of cute little World of Warcraft runes on it to showcase my pure levels of nerdness, it doesn't change that the Yeti X is an excellent microphone. And now, you can get the Blue Yeti X for $109 at Walmart.
