    Audio-Technica Consumer ATR2500 reviews

    ATR2500-USB Condenser USB Microphone is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than Description I use this USB microphone for recording outside audio like bird calls and train sounds, voice overs, and interviews directly into a laptop computer with a digital audio recording and editing program. It's much more sensitive than I thought it might be, has excellent frequency response and lots of signal to work with. The desk stand it comes with is handy to use and the included USB cable is plenty long. A very good value for a good price. It works MUCH better than my old dynamic microphones fed into the sound card.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice for podcasting or screen casting I use it for podcasting and screen casting. The included stand is awful, but it works very nicely with a boom stand and spider mount. The no-delay headphone jack is a nice touch. If price is a concern but you want a nice microphone for podcasts, this is a great place to begin. You should plan to get a pop filter, not so much for the plosives, but to dim the bright blue LED on the microphone (on a mic boom, the LED is pretty much even with my eyes).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Microphone for the Price I'm using the ATR2500 for my podcasting class and it sounds clearer than most of my classmate's recordings who are using the Blue Snowball, it's fairly comparable to the Blue Yeti though that may be due to some factor related to how they're using it rather than the equipment itself. I'm curious how the ATR2500 compares to the AT 2020 which is what I was debating between, but the price of the 2500 is what made me choose it. I agree with other reviewers, the included plastic stand is awful, and I bought a standard mic stand which didn't fit so I don't think the threads are a standard size. Long story short it's great fore the price, the sound is rich and clear with minimal reverb, I'd appreciate a better stand and for the status indicator light to be hidden in the mic like the AT 2020 rather than a blinding blue light on the front.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great when it works! I record my acoustic guitar playing to upload onto YouTube, and wanted an easy to use USB mic with great quality.After tons of searching, I fell upon the ATR2500 and was impressed the day I got it. However, this promises zero latency monitoring (no delay in headphones as you listen to yourself play in real time) - but there was surely a delay, about 1-2 seconds that sounds like a complete echo (used on Audacity).Aside from this issue, it would only work intermittently. I have a Dell PC with Windows 7, and more than half of the time it would say USB device not recognized, which made it unusable. For the times that my computer DID recognize it, the sound quality was amazing. I am going to exchange this mic for a different one and hopefully have better luck.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy setup, great quality After doing some research on various mics for podcasting and training material recording, I chose the ATR2500 and bought it from B&H because of their well established reputation as a trustworthy retailer of tech and digital products. Within just a few minutes of opening the box, I was up and running, and the quallity is top tier for this price range. I couldn't be happier with my decision to go with this mic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect, Please forgive my grammar mistake, but I'd like to recommend this mic :) I use this mic for recording cover songs, and it works perfectly. sound is clear, not too much noise. much better than my old dynamic one. The price is good, too. I've heard before that this mic doesn't work well with win7, but mine just works fine. (win7 home premium 64bit) It's also really easy to use. just plug in to your computer. the stander is a little cheap, but I am fine with that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome mic! I use this mic for promotional videos showing how I make my custom furniture. I use it strictly for Voice Over audio. It is very clean, low noise. I do wish it had a bit more gain as I have to push the volume a bit during editing, but overall it's very nice, especially considering the low price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent for the price but lacking overall Connection was quick and easy in Windows 8. Simply plug into any open USB port, and in a few seconds it's working like a charm. However, the mic volume buttons don't work correctly. You have to press down to press up. (??) This appears to be a software / driver issue that could easily be corrected via an update. The recording quality and gain level is not sufficient for my needs in multitrack recording of guitar and vocals. The overall quality is a fuzzy muffled kind of sound. It would be fine as a cheap mic for youtube videos, though.
