    Audio-Technica AT2005 reviews

    AT2005USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't believe my ears!!! I've been podcasting since 2007 and my favorite microphone is quite uncommon (a forty-year-old Shure Unidyne 5485D (the one that Robert Plant used to use)). The sound is unbeatable! However, I have to say that the Audio-Technica AT2005USB is a close match. It gives you clear uncolored sound at a very reasonable price. And since it's USB it's also hum free. The construction is also great. However, there's something that I don't like. The headphone jack is practically useless. I connected my headphone and the audio level is so low that I can hardly hear myself. Otherwise this microphone is a slam dunk!!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Broken USB port on the mic I have had this mic for just shy of 2 years. I do a weekly podcast. The last time I tried to use the mic the usb port came loose from the board and now does not work (I took the 3 small screws out to see if it was something simple I could fix and unfortunately the points are much too compact for me to solder). The sound quality for the 2ish years it did work was amazing. The ability to plug the headphones into the mic and monitor your sounds was fantastic. The fact that it can run via usb to the computer or into a mixer was also pretty awesome. I only wish mine was still working.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Podcast Ready I purchased two of these to host a podcast. Just for the record you can use two of these simultaneously unlike the Blue USB mics. I use a MacBook Pro and logic. The mic sounds excellent with either USB or XLR. They also look really nice. I haven't experienced any of the low volume issues that others have complained about. They have an excellent ability to attenuate off axis sounds which is great for my slightly noisy recording location. Last but not least B&H expidited free shipping to me. Great service. I am a fan of this company.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy. I have been using this mic for a few weeks now and am really happy with it. The option to use usb or xlr is not often found in many mic especially hand held ones. Along with this I picked up a desk mounted arm and cheap shock mount. The mic is verry light and is held up fine even with a very cheap arm. The quality is excellent at any price range but blows away almost all competition at this price point. It is used as my everyday mic for both voip and live streaming. Side note for any youtubers or streamers out there looking for a good mice, don't waste your money on the go to mics. I had a blue yeti before this and it was good but I find this one works way better if you have any background noise. I have two kids in the house and unless they get really loud you can not hear them on stream or chat. If you are thinking of getting it, just buy it. It is well worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid value A friend in the radio business recommends this mic for those in search of professional sounding audio on the cheep. After two weeks of use, it seems to deliver on that. I use it as a source for radio interviews via Skype, GoogleHangouts, etc. There was basically nothing to set up. I just plugged it in to my computer and it was available as an audio input. I don't use the mini stand that is included, but having cables and the mic clip included was a nice touch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I purchased this USB microphone for a professional PC-based videoconferencing application; I could see how it would be a good mic for podcasting and other recordings. After reading reviews online, I was persuaded it was worth the 60 dollars to give it a try. It was easy to install on my mac system, no CD required. The quality was excellent and achieved the desired result. It looks, feels, and performs like a professional cardioid microphone. You need to keep the mic mount, because it slightly larger thicker in diameter than a standard mic; the mic mount can get loose and cause the mic to droop down unless it is positioned more or less upright. The mini-stand that comes with it is sort of flimsy, but can serve a purpose. All in all a great value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great mic but mine had a promblem this is a great mic for any one from a average gamer looking for good sound quailty to a pro who wants a on stage mic sadly i had the usb break on mine though it may have been me who made it break by dropping it from me having it at weird angles but it did hold up and the way the microphone is made makes it so you dont need a shock mount or a pop cap filter since there both built in also for best audio quailty use the xlr output since the usb it came with does pick up some noise but that would be it as far as complaints.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed Rugged design and fairly good quality so far. I was impressed with the quality considering the low cost. The usb connection seems relatively fragile compared to the design of the mic and the xlr input. The sound is better than I than I expected - i have a large collection of mics - but bought this for a young child who is beginning to record music. The mount it comes with can be used with any stand - the desk stand is fine too - but limiting because you will want this mic relatively close to the subject.
