Blue Yeti USB Microphone ($99) or Samsung S8 or S6 for Audio Recording?

I record my Youtube audio narrations in stereo and use the Samsung S8 and Samsung S6 smart phone to record most of my audio. I also been using the Blue Yeti USB Microphone for high quality narration. It has very good and clean pickup. My copy works very well but i noticed the microphone monitor volume knob is kind of loose but overall the quality of the mic is very good.  On the Samsung S8 and S6, it uses software to filter the audio when you do an stereo recording or an interview. It also proceduces very good audio recording and is good for portable recording. Both items i use heavily and the links to more reviews are below.

If you want to record really clean audio you need to eliminate background noise and sound reflection in the room you are recording you voice in. For me I used a closet and placed my microphone in my shirts. The shirts absorbed any noise from the room and from the reflecting walls.

I borrowed some  Acoustic Panels Studio Foam from my brother who bought it at Amazon ( about $40). It worked well compared to my shirts but at 2 inches, I still needed to add dampening to be back of the closet. Eventually i just bought a 4 inch deep egg crate bed topper twin size to totally absorb the sound for $30!!! It basically covers the wall I need for sound recording.  The bottom line is that you need a quiet room and a way to absorb sound.
