Audio-Technica AT2020 Overview

Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone (Black)
A Versatile Solution for Musicians and Content Creators
The black Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone is designed to bring sonic performance distilled from the company's reputable studio condensers to the realm of home recording for podcasters, musicians, and content creators. The capsule features a low-mass, side-address diaphragm with a cardioid polar pattern for rejecting ambience and noise behind the mic, a welcome trait when tracking in untreated rooms. It comes with a pivoting stand mount for straightforward attachment to your existing mic stand.

The AT2020's extended, linear frequency response enables the flexibility to accurately reproduce signals from a wide variety of sources such as vocals, speech, and instruments. High SPL handling and wide dynamic range allow the AT2020 to capture loud signals with minimal noise and distortion. Since the AT2020 is a solid-state condenser with an XLR output, it should be mated to an XLR-equipped mic preamp capable of sending 48V phantom power.

AT2020 Samples from Audio Test Kitchen
  • B&H is proud to be partnering with Audio Test Kitchen, the world’s most comprehensive online audio product comparison platform, to improve the resources provided to our customers shopping for the right microphone for their given application.
  • This provides you with the ability to listen to a growing selection of microphones with spoken word recordings captured in a standardized environment, with levels matched by the talented engineers at Audio Test Kitchen in its impressive reference studio.
  • Audio Test Kitchen records microphones under identical conditions so you can compare them, apples-to-apples. The source, signal chain, and level never change. The only differences you will hear are between the microphones.
Studio Quality at Home
Designed for home/project studio applications, this side-address cardioid condenser mic is engineered for extended frequency response and enhanced transient response. With its studio-quality articulation and intelligibility, the AT2020 is ideal for musicians, streamers, podcasters, and other content creators.
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The AT2020's cardioid polar pattern primarily picks up sound in front of the mic while being far less sensitive to sound behind the mic, allowing it to capture your voice or instrument with reduced background noise.
Ready for Daily Use
Along with its rugged construction and high-performance specifications, the AT2020 provides reliability, high SPL handling, and wide dynamic range. It comes with a space-saving stand mount for 5/8"-27 threaded stands, an adapter for 3/8"-16 threaded stands, and a protective pouch.
Features at a Glance
  • Custom-engineered 0.6" low-mass diaphragm
  • Extended frequency response and superior transient response
  • High SPL handling and wide dynamic range provide great versatility
  • Cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the desired sound source
  • Stand mount allows placement in tight spots
  • Operates on 48 VDC phantom power from a range of devices such as portable mixers, desktop audio interfaces, or external mic preamps
  • Balanced XLR 3-pin output connector
Audio-Technica ATH-M20x Closed-Back Monitor Headphones (Black)

Bringing the acclaimed features of the M-Series headphones to a price point that's accessible for all, the black Audio-Technica ATH-M20x monitor headphones offer solid build quality and audio performance for musicians and content creators recording and mixing at home. Outfitted with 40mm dynamic drivers and an over-ear, closed-back design, the ATH-M20x headphones deliver enhanced bass response and wide bandwidth (15 Hz to 20 kHz) while isolating you from outside sounds.

Thanks to the 15° swiveling earcups, high-quality materials, and generous cushioning on the headband and earpads, the headphones are both durable and comfortable to wear. Exiting from the left earcup, the attached 9.8' cable reduces tangles and simplifies channel identification. The cable sports a 3.5mm mini plug for use with mobile devices and computer soundcards, and a 1/4" snap-on adapter is included for easy hookup to audio interfaces, mixers, and stereo receivers.

40mm Drivers
The ATH-M20x features 40mm dynamic drivers with rare earth (neodymium) magnets and CCAW (copper-clad aluminum wire) voice coils for quality sound reproduction at a competitive price point.
Tuned for Enhanced Bass Response
The drivers and headphone design work together to provide a sonic signature tuned for enhanced bass performance. With a frequency response of 15 Hz to 20 kHz, the ATH-M20x can reproduce a full spectrum of tones.
Over-Ear, Sound-Isolating Design
The ATH-M20x utilizes a circumaural design that contours around the ears for excellent sound isolation in loud environments. This over-ear, closed-back style is optimal for reducing bleed and separating you from outside sounds.
15° Swiveling Earcups
Equipped with 15° swiveling earcups, the ATH-M20x ensures a great fit.
Attached Single-Sided Cable
Keeping it simple and clean, the ATH-M20x incorporates an attached 9.8' cable that exits from the left side. This increases convenience and makes it easier to distinguish the different sides of the headphone.
3.5mm Plug and 1/4" Snap-On Adapter
The attached cable is terminated with a straight 3.5mm TRS mini plug for easy hookup to mobile devices, MP3 players, and computer headphone jacks. A 1/4" snap-on adapter is included for compatibility connectivity with audio interfaces, mixers, and dedicated headphone amplifiers.
Solid Build Quality
Thanks to the high-quality materials used in the ATH-M20x, the headphones balance comfort and strength while delivering enhanced audio and effective isolation.

How do you attach the mic mount to the mic stand? the "male" end on the stand is too big for the "female" end on the mic mount
Asked by: Brian
Hi Marty, Can you please provide a step-by-step video on how to do this? I've tried to attach the microphone per your instructions (removing the 5/8" to 3/8" adapter and either I'm an idiot or the reflection filter/microphone stand simply does not fit. It states in the instructions that if you are using a handheld-style or shotgun microphone to attach a mic clip (not included) to the 5/8" adapter. This kit is perfect but if I need to be an additional microphone clip, then that should have been included in the kit and the price adjusted accordingly. Thanks.

I had my company buy three of these mic sets and for some reason the audio volume dips during recordings. WE connected everything fine and plug it into Rodecaster pro but each time we do a podcast the volume dips and comes back up on a few seconds. Distance between speaker and mic has not changed, Could you say what could be the cause?
Asked by: Samantha
If you are using the RodeCaster Pro Integrated Podcast Production Studio, then the Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphones should be connected directly to the XLR mic inputs on the RodeCaster Pro with phantom power turned on. It sounds like you may have the compressor and/or master compressor effects turned on and possibly set too high. The compressor is used to smooth and balance the dynamic range in your audio so your voice is clear, punchy, and intelligible. It can even out the audio so the softest parts of your speech can be heard and the loudest parts of your speech will not be overpowering or distorted. The master compressor affects the entire output of your podcast, so if the problem occurs with all of the mics, that may be what is causing the issue. Check the settings on both the regular and master compressor effects and adjust them as needed. Here are links to Rode's online user guide which provides useful information and tutorial videos showing how to use the built-in effects and processors included with the RodeCaster Pro: https://rode.com/en/user-guides/rodecaster-pro/using-advanced-processing-and-effects https://rode.com/en/user-guides/rodecaster-pro/setting-up-microphone-channels
