Product overview

• Stand-mounted condenser microphone that is ideal for recording audio, such as interviews, voiceovers, commentary or dictation
• Side cardioid pickup pattern to allow audio to be picked up from either side of the microphone
• USB connection for quick and easy setup with your computer or laptop
• 3.1m cable to allow you to position the microphone exactly where it is needed

What would I use this microphone with?
This microphone will connect directly to a USB socket on devices such as laptops or desktop computers so setup can be done quickly and easily. A condenser microphone is ideal for recording audio such as podcasts or interviews to be transmitted or played back later on.

What is the advantage of having a condenser microphone?
Condenser microphones are the most common type of microphones for recording audio. They are often used in recording studios as they have a greater ability to reproduce all the audio of an instrument or voice. Using USB power, condenser microphones usually have a louder output but can be more sensitive to loud sounds.

What position does the condenser microphone pick up sound from?
This microphone has a side-cardioid pickup pattern which means it can pick up audio from either side. This will allow you place the microphone centrally, such as on a table, allowing audio to be recorded easily without having to adjust the microphone. This will allow you to easily record audio from different directions, for instance from a two way interview or round table discussion, without adjusting any equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YES, it's worth the small price!!! Well, let me start by sharing... I owned a Music Store in the late 70s early 80s- We sold Audio Technica products even back then... I'm a Professional Musician, Producer, Multi-Instrumentalist... One has to step back from the instantaneous, social media- bash, dash, "hecto-confusing", gratification/confusion World we now live in... By stepping back... remember what you paid for this mic... It's well worth the admission , the set up ( plug and play), and the ever hanging ways to records music and voice. This , considering it's price, really checks all of the boxes... Enjoy your time, enjoy your music and enjoy LIFE :-) Thx AT- good Mic at this price point!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mic This is one of the best usb mics on the market. I use this microphone to do voice overs and a twitch talk show. I love it, it's easy to use and has no static like the Bule yeti.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am impressed First off, I am not a professional in this field. In fact this is the most expensive microphone that I have ever used. However that means I went into this blind and I have a pretty different perspective in this field. This prouduct was very easy to use. I just plugged it in and it worked. I use the microphone for some YouTube videos and it was very simple to use in every program. Just to test, I I tried it out in the windows camera app as well as some apps like skype and google hangouts. In those programs you're not really going to want to buy a mic this expensive and you may want to go for something cheaper. In the end this is an easy and good sounding mic that is a great choice if your just starting out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended for talk shows, gaming, anything, so perfect! I use it for video game streaming, and it is perfect, crispy clear. Only bad part about it, is the stand, so small and tight for something heavy. I really love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mic for USB radio production on the road! This is a great product. I have a daily radio program and this mic is my favorite usb mic. I was using various Blue usb mics and had loads of white noise. None with the AT2020. No need for bulky secondary mixing gear. I replaced the small travel stand with a drum kick mic stand, which works great. I bought an after market foam pop filter. My sound quality rivals what I get on the radio studio pro E.V. voice mics. I also have the xlr version which had to have a mixer. When I travel I use the small stand or take my desk mic stand in two pieces. I do the initial edits in sound studio, an elegant little program that does effective linear editing, then I drop my edits into Logic X. I can get an amazing warm sound with no ad ons! There is no latency in the earphone jack as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Microphone but the Mic stand is HORRIBLE Amazing Microphone but the Mic stand provides no support and causes the mic to fall over constantly.
