            I am a fan of Audio Technica mics, I have a choral and and boundary mic I use for stage. I figured that they would make a better than average computer mic. This mic barely picks up my voice even with the Windows 10 settings boosting it to the max +30db. Even then I have to put the mic about an inch away from my mouth a speak very loudly before windows recognizes it.

                    Thank you for your inquiry. We have not tested this microphone with Cortana, but as long as it accepts a standard microphone input he should work.

                • Q:

                  We have on hand an ATR4650 that was purchased several years ago that works well with one of our products - a special purpose amplifier to drive an audio induction loop to magnetically convey audio to hearing aids. Late last year, we purchased several more ATR4650s to evaluate for consideration of bundling them with our product. All of the newer ATR4650s exhibit strong pickup of ambient 60 Hz hum, especially when brought near 60 Hz AC circuitry. Neither the older ATR4650 nor any other microphone we have tried has exhibited this problem. Has audio-technica changed the shielding and grounding configuration of the ATR4650?

                  Will the ATR4650 work with a standard Audio Interface like a Focusrite 2i2?

                  I would like to use multiple ATR4650 Mics to mic a room for a Lync conference call and I have several semi-pro audio interfaces that I could use. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

                • Q:

                  What's wrong with the mic?

                  My microphone is outputting the audio output of my computer instead of my voice input. It doesn’t even read my voice input. I tried a different mic on my computer and it worked. I tried the messed up mic on my laptop and it worked. So I don’t know why it isn’t working on my desktop.

                  • A:

                    The ATR4650 will only work with a Mac if you use the ATR2USB. This is because Mac computers do not have "microphone" inputs; rather, they have "line level inputs" that are not compatible with microphones. Therefore, to use the ATR4650, you will need the ATR2USB USB microphone adapter.
