Really though the AT2020USB+ does exactly what it sets out to. Offers a well built product with impressive default quality in a form factor/design which allows us to use on the move, or at home with ease.
This microphone is perfect for someone who records on the go or mainly from home. It works great in open spaces and does a good job of not picking up background noise when recording. I have used it for some small demo work in public places if I need to record a quick idea or even a voice over.
With inexpensive mics seemingly as common as guitar picks, one must ask, “Does the world need another cheap mic?” But after testing the AT2020 , my answer is a resounding, “Yes!” Because the AT2020 is anything but “another cheap mic.” The AT2020 provides pleasant surprises in several areas.
The AT2020 is Audio-Technica's entry-level, side-address studio condenser mic. It brings the company's build quality and consistency into the same street price range ($100) as many of the Shanghai-made Neumann U87 look-alikes.
Our production company purchase this mic for producing a podcast and web series. The performance was stellar for the price range. A bit heavy for portable use, the the quality is was the primary purchase concern.
Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
The Audio Technica 2020 is great for home studios. You can buy better, but these wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t let you down. The 2020 looks great. I'm not a professional singer, so I can't give the audio quality a perfect score. Others can comment on the small nuances that separate this mic based on audio quality.
I chose the AT2020USB for three reasons: it was cheap, black, and performed well according to reviews.
I use mine to record a 5 piece rock band with a Boss BR1600CD recorder in the basement. Specifically I use them as overheads for the drums and I use the 2020 for vocals. Sometimes I use a Shure SM57 on a guitar cabinet and then put the 2121 a few feet back just to capture a little more ambience.
