Great product, great price.

  • Summary: This microphone is great for the cost. I'm a Youtuber and I was in need of a new mic to do videos. This mic brings quality to my voice. I highly recommend ordering a Scissor Arm stand for the microphone (They run about 20-80 dollars) and a pop filter with shock absorber as the microphone only comes with a cheap plastic tripod mic stand.

mic OK but stand is junk

  • Excerpt: I was surprised to find that the stand with this mic was very flimsy and did not do a good job of allowing multiple angles w/ the mic (unless you are OK with it falling over).The mic itself was OK, but it did not reduce my sibilants as much as I had hoped (although to be fair, I have heavy sibilants in my speech and the mic I ended up with also doesn't get rid of them entirely).I returned the mic because I found the stand to be useless.

  • Excerpt: Easy to use. Quick set up. This is my first mic for recording and editing podcasts and it's been a breeze so far. I'd for sure recommend it.

Nice for podcasting or screen casting

  • Excerpt: 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).

Pretty Good Mic with limited features

  • Excerpt: It sounds good for the price. However, it does lack some features. Firstly, there is no mute button, so to make the mic mute, you must either unplug it OR use downloaded software. .................................
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Limited Functions

  • Cons: But!!!! It starts to break after 5 uses, first my Mac cannot recognize when it's plugged in, then I had to replug multiple times, after a few seconds the sound started to break and eventually not working at ALL!!!!

Amazing mic at a great value

  • Excerpt: I needed a USB mic and it was between this, or it's inexplicably more expensive brother: AT2020. I went with the ATR2500 because it was half the price and featured zero latency headphone monitoring. From what I've gathered, both mics are otherwise identical. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this thing picks up my deep voice, and it sounds pretty similar to "professional" dynamic xlr mics I've used in recording studios.

Decent for the price but lacking overall

Debleeble, B&H Photo
25 February 2014
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor Sound Quality, Unreliable
