Decent for the price but lacking overall

  • 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. <br /><br />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

  • Summary: Great entry microphone for the price, I use it for games and recordings all the time now without issue, sound quality is top notch for the price. Great buy if you're looking for a major upgrade from a webcam or similar.
  • Pros: Very clear sound, much better than anything built in, Build quality feels great for $60
  • Cons: Not noise cancelling, so it picks up quite a bit of background noise, Flimsy stand

  • Excerpt: I use it to do voice over work and its crisp and clear. The only issue I have is, make sure you hook headphones up while your using it. The computer will think its a speaker when you do a playback. Also the stand is pretty cheap but what can you do. Overall though very happy with the product.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Breaks Easily

I got my ATR2500-USB back from Audio-Technica's repair center with NO WORK DONE ON IT.<br /><br /> <br /><br />The note said, &quot;Could not repeat issue in house&quot; and it was sent right back to me... no email or anything.<br /><br /> <br /><br />I plugged it back in to my computer, and it worked ok for about 10 minutes...

  • Summary: Great mic, first impression it seems very clear, however I'll have to test for background noise, hopefully that won't be an issue. The stand isn't very strong... The real issue I have is with NCIX. The mic they sent me was obviously used. The internal packaging was destroyed, the instruction booklet has dirt smeared on it. The mic itself has some minor scratches. However the fact that it appears to work and for the price I paid it isn't worth the hassle to return it.
  • Pros: Sounds clear, Ubuntu recognized immediately
  • Cons: Stand could be more sturdy

  • Summary: First I must say that I am not a professional user and, therefore, cannot talk about the thecnical aspects of this product. I bought it just for making Youtube videos, as my headset microphone had too much noise and poor sound quality. I watched many reviews about AudioTechnica products, and it seemed to me that they make quality products. So I bought this one. I am verry happy with this microphone.
