Great choice for VO work.

  • Excerpt: This microphone fit the bill perfectly for an upgrade from a dynamic mic I've been using to record voice-overs.But the REAL star was the guy that helped me decide which one to get. We spent a good 30 minutes in the microphone room testing and re-testing. He listened to my needs, the mics I came in leaning toward and didn't try to hard upsell me (a little, but I think they were hones suggestions and all but one within my target range).

  • Summary: Bought this mic after reading so many good reviews on it and hearing a couple sound clips on youtube. Got it in the mail, unboxed it and tried it right away. Totally worth the buy! Definitley an upgrade for me, i was using a cheap $100 condenser mic before this. BIG difference!

Best multi pattern in its price range.

  • Excerpt: I use this mic in omnidirectional mode for group recordings with a small folk band. It's great as a reference recorder during rehearsals and helps us learn to play dynamically. It's also super for vocals (in cardiod mode). Very crisp. I personally like the frequency response but it's still yet to be tested with multiple vocalists. I wish it had a hard case - it only comes with a padded zipper bag that's not quite large enough to fit both the mic and shockmount in.

  • Excerpt: AT2050 is a great multi-pattern microphone at better than half the price of other brands, Audio-Techinca has a winner with this condenser mic. We needed a microphone to add ambience to our recording and live streaming and this unit does the job excellently. We had previously used a condenser mic that was almost ten times the cost of this one and we can not tell the difference in the quality of the recording.

great affordable mic

  • Summary: I bought this AT2050, because i have enjoyed the simple younger brother AT2020 so much... the sound quality is pretty much the same on both, except with this AT2050, it has multiple patterns to chose from. I love the natural sound of audiotechnica mic's... not a lot of artificial tones added (or subtracted). I use these mostly for vocals, but also for close-mic acoustic guitars.

"Another Great Mic From AT"

By a customer from msn.com, zzounds.com
5 April 2011
  • Excerpt: This is an excellent mic for the money and is typical of my experience with AT mics. It has a fairly flat, nice full, clean response and does not have the brittle high end of many mics in this price range. Very good sound.
