OVERVIEW

For crystal-clear vocal performance.

The Audio-Technica AT2010 microphone is designed to bring the studio-quality articulation and intelligibility of Audio-Technica's renowned 20 Series to the stage. Featuring the same 16 mm low-mass diaphragm found in the critically acclaimed AT2020 side-address studio condenser, the AT2010 mic excels wherever articulate vocals are needed: in houses of worship, for solo performances, jazz vocalists, singer/songwriters, and more.

This breakthrough handheld vocal condenser delivers remarkable specs and superior build at an amazing price. State-of-the-art design and manufacturing techniques ensure compliance with Audio-Technica's stringent consistency and reliability standards, and set the AT2010 apart from other vocal mics in its class. The microphone offers a wide dynamic range and handles high SPLs with ease. Its rugged construction is designed to stand up to years of use.

Requires phantom power.

      Bought one for guitar vocal who doesn't eat the mic. Works great - up close as well. Just set your gain for the distance you need. No feedback issues for me. Bought 2 more and all work great.

      Comments about Audio-Technica AT2010 Handheld Condenser Microphone:

      This was the first vocal mic I ever purchased years ago when I joined a band that required me to start singing. I immediately got compliments on how it sounded! I am primarily a bassist, but sometimes I bring my flute out to the gig, and this mic sounds awesome for singing and for my flute (Instead of needing 2 separate microphones). The highs are crisp and clear, and the full body of the voice comes through. You also have a lot of room to back off of it if you need to sing quiet bkgd vocals. This would probably also work well for a choir. The only issues I have had are that it feeds back in a loud practice room, or a boomy and loud bar. All in all, it was a good purchase!

          Dont let the low price fool you!

          About Me Professional Musician

          Comments about Audio-Technica AT2010 Handheld Condenser Microphone:

          Never owned a better mic for the money!I purchased two of these mics for a vocal trio bluegrass pop act. I already had a sure SM81 and did not want to go the expense of two more. I was blown away at how these mics performed alongside the SM81. Equal in clairity and even had better bass response. Ive used it in the studio for vocals, percussion, even a Native American flute sounds awesome! The real plus for studio is how the condenser kicks in when youre right in front of it so you dont pick up any unwanted sounds from the recording room in a project studio. If you are careful, you dont even need a pop screen

          A different use..

          By Willow Pony

          from New Mexico, Southwest USA

          Comments about Audio-Technica AT2010 Handheld Condenser Microphone:

          Depending on the situation, this is a great mic, and would not be my first choice in a high charged band, however done properly it would work. I am sure that it would would respond well in an IEM setting. Of course if you can afford IEM you have a lot of choices. For solo performances, this mic shines and detail to boot.
          Okay, I am a singer/songwriter who does solo as well as group music, as in a rock/blues/jazz mix. On the side I have been doing sound gigs, which includes indoor/outdoor concerts and pow-wows. Last night, to keep things sane, I hardwired some drum groups to keep from running wireless Sennheisers w/835 capsules to the outlying drum groups. I used wired Sennheiser 935(dynamic great vocal mike), Shure Beta 87, AKG 880, and the AT 2010. Compared to the Sennheiser wireless which were second to the AT 2010. Needless to say, I am going to buy two more Audio Technica 2010, as they sounded awesome, of coursed the drum group has a lot to do with their singing and drumming, however all things remaining equal, the dynamics didn't work as well, and you use the best mike for the situation. The secret is to point all of the mics up on a boom to utilize the cardiod pickup pattern of the microphone, as the drum is rejected and the vocals emphasized. I would imagine, if I were recording two of these mikes and a third ambient mic would be my best choice. A drum group placed the sennheiser directly at the group, like an overhead, and my mixer and the headphones agreed, too much drum. Happy mic'ing. These ATs shouldn't be overlooked, I am going to try out the Artist series next. By the way I also have Heil 20, Shure Beta 58, Audix OM5. The mic does require phantom power, just don't turn on the phantom power on and off with the amp/mixer up. Enjoy
          Great clean sound. You might get some distortion if you get too close, with a mic like this you don't have to, in order to get great proximity effect.
          For the price, I am getting two more, no questions asked!

            Good for Bass / Baritone

            Ask me a question

            Comments about Audio-Technica AT2010 Handheld Condenser Microphone:

            I just got the Audio Technica AT2010 yesterday and recorded in the studio with it. Exceptional quality mic for bass / baritone vocals. I have more of a tenor range and am recording some songs with a lower baritone range, my other mics sound great in higher ranges, but too thin in lower. The AT2010 really fattens up the lows. Glad I bought.

            I purchased two of these for use in my studio with thoughts of using them in live performances. I was not disappointed. They are good enough at suppressing handling noise and feedback rejection. I have found Audio Technica makes some great microphones as well as headphones...

            Comments about Audio-Technica AT2010 Handheld Condenser Microphone:

            I had been looking at Neumann, Shure, and I've tried AKG, 58s, Audix, trying to find a great mike at a decent price. I play solo at times, and vocals make the difference if you are limited with accompaniment instruments. For the price and what it claims to deliver, it does. Clarity-excellent, subtle nuances-great, it makes me sound better-because I can hear myself. I play open mikes and other performances with groups, but this mike helps me improve in my delivery. If you are looking for that, this is a great mike for the price. I don't need another expensive mike to worry about, 'cause I've found what I was looking for.
