    Audio-Technica Consumer ATR2100 reviews

    ATR2100-USB Cardioid Dynamic USB Microphone is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 44.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Microphone I use this mic to podcast and it was definitely the best fit for me. The ability to use an XLR or USB connection gives it a lot versatility. It's a great price for great sound quality (only have to add a minimal amount of bass). And best of all it comes in a nice set with everything you need: XLR & USB cables, a mic clip, and a stand. Just grab a windscreen and you're good to go. One negative is that mic is very sensitive to movement, so handheld use isn't an option if you want very clean audio. I also wish it came with some kind of case/pouch. But, overall, as a stationary, table top mic, or those with very steady hands, this mic is perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and incredibly versatile I bought two of these mics for recording our podcast and it works great. Because it is a dynamic mic it doesn't pick up a lot of room noise. You do have to stay right on top of the mic, but that isn't a problem if you get a boom stand to place the mic right in front of your face.Having the option to plug in the mic via USB or XLS is great. We use this with a Focusrite 6i6 pre-amp and USB interface, but you could just plug it straight into your computer as well.The sound quality is excellent. A guest on the Show Me Your Mic podcast recently switched between the Heil PR-40 (a $ mic) and the ATR2100 and you couldn't tell the difference.A great mic to get started that you can use for a long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS IS THE LAST MICROPHONE YOU'LL NEED! This microphone is so versatile! Great for NLE for a video editing system computer to handle voiceovers. Great sound quality. Also doubles with its XLR connection as an additional microphone for our board room set up. And with the headphone jack, you won't need additional speakers to hear what you record. Great portability. Nice solid table-top tripod comes with it and an XLR connection cord. Buy this one for maximum versatility between uses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right for home recording directly to a computer My granddaughter has been taking voice training and we needed a way to make good quality CDs. This microphone has a USB output that connects directly to a laptop. Recordings can then be made directly onto software such as WavePad. In comparison to recording with an external device on a chip and loading the file onto the computer, this microphone is excellent. It even comes with the appropriate mini-USB cable. There is an on-off switch on the microphone itself as well as a port for a XLR cable (also supplied). The only precaution in using the microphone is to recognize that the blue LED light is on whenever the microphone is powered from a computer via the USB and is not a light to show the position of the on-off switch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from On the Go Podcasting The only way I way I can quality the ATR2100-USB is to compare to a $300 procaster microphone AND the ATR2100 stands up very well to the high-end mic. Yes you do notice a less robust sound with the ATR2100 compared to a high end mic but the mic sounds good and a doubt if listeners will notice or complain. I use this with my H4N Zoom sometimes grouped with the BossJock on my Ipad. I would recommend for studio or travel recordings.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, but watch for plosives This is an excellent mic overall. I especially like that it can be used in USB and XLR mode. The main issue I noticed is regarding plosives, the sound of a thump when you say a word with a P, B, etc. A foam windscreen plus a hoop-type windscreen, plus not speaking directly into the mic eliminated this issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome microphone for podcasting I bought this microphone for my wife to help her get started with podcasting. This is an excellent microphone, connects easily via USB, and works great with GarageBand. It has a strong feel to it, and the sound clarity is great. It only picks up sound when you speak directly into it, which is great because it does not pick-up ambient sound. And, I like supporting B&H@

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from *THE* First Microphone You Should Buy For anybody thinking about general recording, this is the first microphone you should buy. There is no better microphone that balances quality, flexibility of use, and cost. I have no fear throwing this microphone in my travel bag. It's a dynamic microphone - they are very robust. It may get a scratch or the grille may get dented. Nevertheless, the sound quality will remain solid. And it's relatively inexpensive so I'm not too worried about normal wear and tear damage. It has both USB and XLR connections and includes cables for both - a nice added bonus. So as you move up from USB recording to a mixer, you can still use this microphone. That makes it easier to purchase the mixer, compressor, etc. you really want because you don't have to upgrade your microphone at the same time. Because the size and shape is common among dynamic microphones, you can get a pop filter (windscreen), shock mount, and other accessories for less. Again, the cost is great. The other microphones I considered cost more and typically only supported USB or XLR. For the price of other microphones, I got the Audio Technica 2100, pop filter (windscreen), boom arm, and still saved money toward a mixer. This is the best way to go!
