Reviews around value (5.00 of 5)

  • The quality is amazing and crisp as long as you have a good audio interface eliminating any buzz that is made with ALL microphones
  • Unless your price range is $200, this is the best value and most quality for less than that
  • The AT2035 does sound a bit better, I was able to compare it side by side with my USB AT2020, but the difference is honestly negligable so the AT2020 is much better value for your money.
  • Best value you can get, buy it now if you have the money
  • It would be better value if it were bundled with the matching spider, but they are out there.

Reviews around sound (4.56 of 5)

  • it brings all the sound you need with nothing in the background for way cheaper
  • Great mic u can record with little sound in the back ground i will recommend this mic for an artist
  • Although, I suspect any decent preamp used properly with the AT2020would sound pretty darn good
  • The thing to remember with preamps is totry to get close to the *loudest possible clean sound*coming out of the preamp and generatea BIG signal going IN to the recording device, which shouldhave its input gain quite LOW (maybe like "2" or even "1").Watch your clipping/overload levels,listen for any audible noise or distortion in the recording,and make adjustments to cut those sound flaws, if they are present
  • This mic is sturdy (no plastic) and has a great, rich sound to it

Reviews around microphone (4.29 of 5)

  • Fantastic sound quality out of such a relatively cheap microphone
  • It seems that through discord specifically, the microphone tends to deteriorate in quality over time
  • The microphone has yet to fail and gives a nearly studio type quality
  • Sounds like a much more expensive microphone than it actually is.
  • Everything from the packaging to the construction of the microphOne screams quality

Reviews around mics (3.99 of 5)

  • I think everyone here agrees there are some great mics if you go up to the $200-400 range.
  • I was hoping to get a little better sound than my usual stable of dynamic mics provide.
  • Sounds like twice the mic of the cheaper dynamic mics we had been using.
  • I have quite a number of more expensive mics in my studio, but I find most folks tend to choose this at2020 for their voice over most the other mics
  • Sounds like twice the mic of the cheaper dynamic mics we had been using.

Reviews around product (3.88 of 5)

  • In terms of value - it is a great product for a fantastic price.
  • Great product sounds good but even better with audio effects to minimize keyboard and background sound.
  • -Technica makes great products, but has a nasty habit of trying to making parts of their products
  • Product doesn't work as advertised
  • Doesn't seem like a bad product

Reviews around condenser (3.66 of 5)

  • Construction is good, but this is the worst condenser microphone I've ever worked with sound-wise
  • I started off with a cheap Chinese condenser mic (which was a huge mistake) and dealt with it
  • I have been really surprised at the quality of these inexpensive condenser mics.
  • So yes, this is a great microphone, especially when comparing it against my cheaper 25 dollar condenser mic, but their shady practice of widening the base/handle of the microphone as an attempt to goad me into buying their shock mount kept me from giving it that elusive fifth star.
  • There are other condenser mics available for lower prices
