      Comments about Audio-Technica ATR5200 Monophone/Dynamic Boom Microphone Combination Headset:

      Reason for Purchase: I bought this headset about 3 years ago now to usher in a new computer I built. I'm a big stickler for splitting my audio streams. I play video games, so I like having voice/communication programs piped into my ear while game/music audio plays through my main set of speakers, which was the reason I acquired it. I also keep a decently high volume, so I don't want explosions or my personal music playing into another person's ear.
      Requirements: It will require two jacks to work, one for input and one for output. If you're using this on a desktop, there shouldn't be a lack for ports in that regard. I don't think there's a meaningful difference between two separate cords and a single cord in terms of audio quality that I noticed.
      For microphone audio quality: I have been told that on chat programs, my voice comes across as a little warmer and more nuanced (which, if you have a voice like mine, is a compliment!). The microphone itself is easy to position across your face, although square-jawed folks like me might have some issues getting it to not touch your lips. There seems to be a built-in pop filter and grate, which minimizes any explosive Ps, though it won't prevent them entirely. It also prevents anyone from hearing your breathing as long as you don't violently exhale through your mouth, which some mics pick up all too easily. The mic and boom are pretty durable and very flexible. I've dropped/stepped on this more than a few times and it sounds the same no matter what! One drawback/advantage I take issue with is the microphone's sensitive insensitivity. While I've never had anyone pick up my gameplay, on some chat programs (Discord and Teamspeak) they often have an issue hearing me and I have to crank up the boost/gain to pretty high levels. I don't yell, but I don't exactly have a mouse-like tenor to my voice.
      Ran outta characters: Headset is durable, accidentally broke off a tab on it recently after three years. Decent, but price could lower

        • A:

          The ATR5200 is designed for hands-free computer and other recording applications. It is possible to use this with with an acoustic amplifier. However, the mono headphone will only give you a mono signal, and the miss-match in plugs (mono headphone vs. stereo headphone) may result in low volume, and possibly humming. You'll also have to adjust the settings of your acoustic amplifier for use with the headphone out only.
