The AT2020 side-address condenser offers the performance advantages of high-quality studio microphones designed for versatile performance in the most demanding production applications.

Read what Darwin Grosse had to say about this price/performance breakthrough in Recording magazine’s review:

“The specs are pretty stellar: the frequency chart shows a slight dip in the low range, and slight hype in the 10-14 kHz range, and lists an expected 124 dB dynamic range. As a point of comparison, that means you should be able to use this mic for everything from insect mating calls to jet propulsion testing. ... Audio-Technica decided to take a hard swing at the low-cost microphone market, and I think they hit a home run. They’ve created an inexpensive mic that sounds good, looks great and has some stunning specs. ... Since the mic delivers on all accounts, it’s hard not to envision a few of these in the mic cabinet.”
