    A good mic with some design flaws


    This mic is a good mic with exceptional sound quality,lightweight,and versatile in the sense that you can use it with an iphone/ipad. However the proprietary connector on the mic can not be found anywhere else and if by chance it breaks then you can not get any third party connectors anywhere. Audio technica should have included two pairs of connectors in the occasion that one breaks.Also be aware that this mic does not include a port to monitor your audio. Unless you are a die hard apple phone user and need a better mic then I would recommend some of audio technicas other mics.

  • Q & A

    Hi. I was wondering since this mic doesn't have a headphone jack, how am I supposed to monitor my recordings? Over my music production software? And am I supposed to use only my iPad Pro's own headphone jack?


    With the limitation of iPhones Lightinging connection offering only 3.3v compared to typical USB's 5.5v, an integral headphone amplifier was not capable. For realtime monitoring, it is recommended to use devices such as the AT2020USB+ that have realtime capabilities or other digital distribution networks that offer low latency such as Dante.


    With the correct cables will this microphone work with a Galaxy S7?


    No, the AT2020USBi may be connected to iOS devices and computers.


    Hi, where can I buy micro-HDMI to USB cable for this microphone?


    Please contact our Parts Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5002 or at for assistance with this.


    Will the AT2020USBi microphone work with Windows 10?


    The AT2020USBi utilizes the USB Audio CODEC which is a part of the operating systems. You may find additional helpful information on the topic here:


    I have only had my microphone for about a year, and the cable doesn't work anymore. I'm having a hard time finding a replacement. Can you please help me?

    Hey! I have the AT2020 USBi. How do I use it? It is connected to my iPhone 7 and on, but how do I change the input from my phone's microphone to this one?

    Could you please tell me what the MIC and COM monitor level mean on the microphone?


    Note, the AT2020USBi does not have a MIC / COM control. This is found on the AT2020USB+. The headphone connection on the AT2020USB+ allows for direct monitoring from the microphone capsule to reduce latency (MIC side of switch) and will allow you to monitor the audio playback from the computer on the COM side of the switch. You may find a "happy medium" between the two when tracking live.


    I bought this microphone back about a year ago from a local music retailer in my area. I've been thoroughly enjoying the product, but recently (within the past month or so) both cables broke at the Micro-HDMI end connecting to the microphone. How can I receive/purchase a replacement?


    Please contact our Parts Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5002 or at for assistance with this.


    Hi there, I've been borrowing a friends USB 2020 mic to use and by some freak occurrence, while recording, one of the legs snapped (the metal pin snapped and the plastic on the outside broke as the leg snapped outward). Needless to say I'd like to buy another desk stand, but I can't see where I would buy one. Could you please provide me with a link/location to buy one please?
