This mike is great if you love lots of squealing and feedback or if you just like lousy sound and even worse quality. The worst mike I have ever seen or used. Junk! Buy a shure and save your money. Avoid the wireless version of this mike too. The receiver is cheap plastic and not durable at all...

      Comments about Audio-Technica ATM75 Cardioid Condenser Headworn Microphone:

      I use this mic in my home studio recording setup and the clarity and bass response are remarkable for something in this price range . I have used this for vocals and record acoustic guitars . It is so easy to get a good clean signal within minutes guess you could almost call this plug and play with a few small adjustments on gain structure your set to record .I highly recommend this mic for any recording studio.

      The mic doesn't work on a Mac.

      By Jack

      from Saskatoon, Sk. Canada

      Comments about Audio-Technica ATM75 Cardioid Condenser Headworn Microphone:

      I can't seem to get a decent level with this mic. I use a Mac, and it could be the computer's issue, as I've heard the same from other Mac users. Regardless, the mic is useless to me, whatever the cause of this issue.

          I am the GM of a high school radio station and we have three 2020's and two 2021's. Kids can be tough on equipment but these mics keep sounding great day in and day out. I use them to record with, live talk on the air, and even use them on stage occasionally and they never let me down. Way to go AT!!!

                      The Audio Technica AT2020 is my very first foray into the wonderful world of cardoid condenser microphones. As an amateur radio operator, or a ham radio op, I must say this microphone is superb in every way. My reason for giving Ease of Use a "good" rating is like I said, this my very first cardoid condenser mic, I didn't know anything about phantom power supplies or the like. Now that I do know, and have this as my main microphone for my radio station AI4HO, Alpha India Four Hotel Oscar. I have and still receive unsolicited great audio, or, you sound great, what mic are you using. I tell them an Audio Technica AT2020..doesn't everybody use this mic?

                      If you don't know anything about cardoid condenser microphones and are looking for a really, really great inexpensive microphone, then the AT2020 should be first on your list. While this is a great mic for studio both pro and home studio work, this mic also works well with instruments such as the drum, guitars both electric and non electric, tambourines too work well with this mic. Or, if you are a ham radio op like me and want something different in your arsenal of mics, this is it, look no further. The AT2020 by Audio Technica is a microphone for any and all, pro and amateur alike will enjoy the responsiveness and the rugged durability of this microphone. Thank you all for taking the time to read my review, and many thanks go to Audio Technica for building a superb mic in every way.

                          Hello,
                          I cut voice tracks at home for industrial videos, films and radio spots. My past go to mic was a NADY ribbon but after auditioning several condensers including CAD, Rode, AKG and a newer APEX ribbon, I thought I'd give the AT 2020 a try. My radio network client said use this from now on. I now have 2 and will keep the APEX ribbon because it look retro and cool, and my Shure SM57's for outside work.

                              I was done with headset mic setups so went in search for a good quality Condenser Microphone that would meet my Gaming, Streaming and Work Teleconferencing needs. After a lot of research and comparing the AT2020 with mics from Yeti and Razer I was confident in choosing the AT2020. The quality is better than I expected, I often get a sound check from coworkers and the response is always one of disbelief that I am using a Condenser mic on a boom over my monitor - the sound is crystal clear and with no interference or noise. If you go with the non USB model,, make sure you match the XLR cables and phantom power source / pre-mixer quality with the quality of this microphone and you will not be disappointed.

                                  As a voice over and spot radio announcer of 48 years, I have used a lot of mics. I have been a fan of ribbons and own several but those lack a sparkle and punch.

                                  After many condensers from AKG Perception models an inexpensive CAD and Rode NT1-A, this seems to be the best so far. Plus is about $100!

                                  If I could afford a Neumann U-87, I would likely use it, but this is a very close second in sound. Really!

                                    I have a Youtube channel i use this mic for recording and it is just a amazing microphone. I think it is truly the best mic under $100 you can get.

                                      Low self-noise, nearly flat frequency response, good sensitivity, with a rugged and durable housing at a very affordable price. Definitely one of the best performer in its class and price range that I actually have two of them in my 100+ personal microphone arsenal.

                                          The Audio Technica 2020 is great for home studios. You can buy better, but these won�t let you down. The 2020 looks great.
                                          I'm not a professional singer, so I can't give the audio quality a perfect score. Others can comment on the small nuances that separate this mic based on audio quality. To me it�s great.
                                          But for everything else; the 2020 is like an ox. It's heavy duty and made to last. It can handle ANY audio source. It's got a heavy solid feel. In my research before purchasing this microphone, I couldn't find one review complaining about the quality or reliability of the 2020. Just the opposite, the 2020 is more like a major department store; it may not be the most convenient choice, but when you want to make sure you get what you want the first time, this is the mic to reach for. I have personally verified that this works with a Sax (bari and alto#, guitar amps #8� and 12�), acoustic guitars, and vocals. I currently have it setup in my sound booth and haven�t found a reason to change it out. I actually may buy a second one just so I don�t have to take it down. The only down side is that it�s solid construction makes it a bit heavy, so make sure you have a good mic stand or use a weight at the bottom of your stand.

                                            The ATM 75 has been one of the best purchases I have made! I have been touring with this mic since 2004 and not once has it failed me. Still using the original one I bought! Some of the reviews talk about feedback and poor sound quality but that simply is not true! A good sound man can easily eq it to sound like the most expensive mic out there and as a drummer if feed back was an issue I would be dead in the water. Stationary in front of a single 15" monitor and a sub feed back is normally an issue but not with this mic again I am sure it boils down to a good sound man doing his job. But honestly even a novice with little knowledge should be able to eliminate feedback from most mic's with a good eq.

                                                      I own two headset microphones. I own a wireless Nady UHF headset and a Audio Technica ATM75. The Audio Technica is a lot better durability and reliability. The headset from Audio Technica stays on my head a lot better than the Nady wireless. The Audio Technica headset mic is made a lot better than the Nady wireless. The Audio Technica is made out of metal for the headset and the Nady is made out of plastic. I like the Audio Technica a lot better.

                                                      This mike is great if you love lots of squealing and feedback or if you just like lousy sound and even worse quality. The worst mike I have ever seen or used. Junk! Buy a shure and save your money. Avoid the wireless version of this mike too. The receiver is cheap plastic and not durable at all...
