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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not work properly with Windows 10 (or 8) Bob is right it does not work with Windows 10 (or 8). There are hundreds of complaints about this issue. Did AudioTechnica complain about this to Microsoft? The issue is with most USB microphones. AT should require sellers to point out this fact.
