        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.

        The enclosed mic stand is a bit wimpy so plan on getting a more solid mounting solution.

            I used a similar Audio-Technica mic (the AT2020USB) at work, and was impressed so I bought this one. It is very easy to use and gives high sound levels and instantly is recognized by Win7x64. A great choice for voiceover narration work.

              Comments about Audio-Technica AT2020USB+ Cardioid Condenser USB Microphone:

              I was looking for a microphone to record audio for product overviews and tutorials. I'm not an audio expert, so I was looking for a microphone that seemed to have the basic features. The AT2020USB worked out to be perfect for my needs. Well built and easy to use (even though it did take me a couple of tries to figure out how to use the headphones for playback through the mic). Sound quality is very good for the price range. Stand is ok for quick recording sessions. No problem using on both a Windows 8 system and a MacBook Pro, bot h using Audacity for recording. Overall very pleased.

                          Comments about Audio-Technica AT2020USB+ Cardioid Condenser USB Microphone:

                          Bought this mic with the Auray BA-2EU Two-Section Broadcast Arm with Integrated USB Cable, the Audio-Technica AT8458 Microphone Shock Mount, and the sE Electronics Metal Pop Filter for a total of around $[$]+…All-in-all – as an ensemble selected to the job I needed – Podcasts and live web-broadcasts – this setup serves my purposes very well.It is – however – necessary to find the optimal distance from the capsule in order to best interpret your voice: neither too bass, nor otherwise lacking in "oomph"... Once this has been found, there is little lea-way for postional variants whilst still maintaining the same over all sound-feel.The Angle-Arm works efficiently, and is good value. The Pop-filter is also – I feel – better than the cheaper straight mesh, or gauze models.The mic is clean, crisp, has good bass, and is very much a plug-an-play piece of kit (on Mac OS, at least) – whose external, additional control variables on the mic itslef, are really useful.My only negative comment is that when the mic box arrived, it had patently been opened. Not only that, but the microphone deskstand was missing – which leads me to believe that this was either demo model, or had been showcased, and then badly re-assembled for sending-off to me as a "complete, new unit".Naturally, I contacted B & H Sales Service by e-mail, and a couple of days later heard back from one fellow – and then again two days after that from another – and finally, two days after THAT, from a third gent.... All to say that they would "see if they could (persuade) the Agent to send the missing part" to me directly.Two weeks since my delivery,and I'm still waiting.B&H offers a great service and is more-often-than-not my personal, primary resource. However, on occasion I have noticed that whereas 95% of the time the results are as expected – with no complaints even for overseas deliveries – there is that niggling 5% which, when it goes belly-up, really "affects the 'Love'"…Other than for this factor, as a WHOLE – Product AND Service – it would have been a Five Star kit.
