Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone (Black)
A Versatile Solution for Musicians and Content Creators
The black Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone is designed to bring sonic performance distilled from the company's reputable studio condensers to the realm of home recording for podcasters, musicians, and content creators. The capsule features a low-mass, side-address diaphragm with a cardioid polar pattern for rejecting ambience and noise behind the mic, a welcome trait when tracking in untreated rooms. It comes with a pivoting stand mount for straightforward attachment to your existing mic stand.

The AT2020's extended, linear frequency response enables the flexibility to accurately reproduce signals from a wide variety of sources such as vocals, speech, and instruments. High SPL handling and wide dynamic range allow the AT2020 to capture loud signals with minimal noise and distortion. Since the AT2020 is a solid-state condenser with an XLR output, it should be mated to an XLR-equipped mic preamp capable of sending 48V phantom power.

With its studio-quality articulation and intelligibility, the AT2020 is ideal for musicians, streamers, podcasters, and other content creators.
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The AT2020's cardioid polar pattern primarily picks up sound in front of the mic while being far less sensitive to sound behind the mic, allowing it to capture your voice or instrument with reduced background noise.
Ready for Daily Use
Along with its rugged construction and high-performance specifications, the AT2020 provides reliability, high SPL handling, and wide dynamic range. It comes with a space-saving stand mount for 5/8"-27 threaded stands, an adapter for 3/8"-16 threaded stands, and a protective pouch.
Features at a Glance
  • Custom-engineered 0.6" low-mass diaphragm

Audio-Technica ATH-M20x Closed-Back Monitor Headphones (Black)

Bringing the acclaimed features of the M-Series headphones to a price point that's accessible for all, the black Audio-Technica ATH-M20x monitor headphones offer solid build quality and audio performance for musicians and content creators recording and mixing at home. Outfitted with 40mm dynamic drivers and an over-ear, closed-back design, the ATH-M20x headphones deliver enhanced bass response and wide bandwidth (15 Hz to 20 kHz) while isolating you from outside sounds.

Thanks to the 15° swiveling earcups, high-quality materials, and generous cushioning on the headband and earpads, the headphones are both durable and comfortable to wear. Exiting from the left earcup, the attached 9.8' cable reduces tangles and simplifies channel identification. The cable sports a 3.5mm mini plug for use with mobile devices and computer soundcards, and a 1/4" snap-on adapter is included for easy hookup to audio interfaces, mixers, and stereo receivers.

40mm Drivers
The ATH-M20x features 40mm dynamic drivers with rare earth (neodymium) magnets and CCAW (copper-clad aluminum wire) voice coils for quality sound reproduction at a competitive price point.
Tuned for Enhanced Bass Response
The drivers and headphone design work together to provide a sonic signature tuned for enhanced bass performance. With a frequency response of 15 Hz to 20 kHz, the ATH-M20x can reproduce a full spectrum of tones.
Over-Ear, Sound-Isolating Design
The ATH-M20x utilizes a circumaural design that contours around the ears for excellent sound isolation in loud environments. This over-ear, closed-back style is optimal for reducing bleed and separating you from outside sounds.
15° Swiveling Earcups
Equipped with 15° swiveling earcups, the ATH-M20x ensures a great fit.
Attached Single-Sided Cable
Keeping it simple and clean, the ATH-M20x incorporates an attached 9.8' cable that exits from the left side. This increases convenience and makes it easier to distinguish the different sides of the headphone.
3.5mm Plug and 1/4" Snap-On Adapter
The attached cable is terminated with a straight 3.5mm TRS mini plug for easy hookup to mobile devices, MP3 players, and computer headphone jacks. A 1/4" snap-on adapter is included for compatibility connectivity with audio interfaces, mixers, and dedicated headphone amplifiers.
Solid Build Quality
Thanks to the high-quality materials used in the ATH-M20x, the headphones balance comfort and strength while delivering enhanced audio and effective isolation.

512 AUDIO Microphone Pop Filter with Gooseneck C-Clamp

Placed in front of your favorite vocal mic, the 512-Pop Microphone Pop Filter from 512 AUDIO delivers improved recording quality for any mic by reducing commonly problematic sounds from strong p and f consonants, making it a welcome accessory for recording podcasts, voiceovers, and vocal performances.

Its metal mesh design is visually pleasing and sonically effective while being easier to clean and more rugged than traditional nylon pop filters. Via the adjustable swivel C-clamp, the 512-Pop securely attaches to any boom arm or mic stand. The inclusion of a flexible and sturdy gooseneck ensures problem-free positioning of the pop filter.

Cleaner Sound
By preventing intrusive pops and plosives caused by bursts of air from p, f, and s sounds, the 512-Pop delivers a clear sound while saving you the time and energy often spent removing such sounds in postproduction.
Enhanced Protection
The 512-Pop features a metal mesh filter that more effectively disperses pops and plosives from speech and vocals compared to ordinary nylon pop filters. With its flexible yet sturdy gooseneck, you'll easily find the perfect placement that reliably stays in place.

Audio-Technica AT2020 Reviews

Power Meets Beauty

By Ladell
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-03-01

This is my first condenser mic, but I have heard great things about AT in the past. I have owned multiple of their ATH 50s. Very quality products. This mic is no exception. I upgraded to this for my video conference setup and the sound quality is superb. I know must audio professionals know this but if this is your first mic, be sure to have all your cables, interfaces, and holding arms locked in to make unboxing day as smooth as possible. I am only about a month into using the mic but after about 30 hours of zoom and a few short tutorial style videos, I am still in love. I will update this review once I have had some more hours in this unit. I'll also post an raw audio clip for reference!

Quality build

I use a mike for voice overs and connect the mike via a Behringer Q502USB mixer and I was plugging in a cheap mike into the phono jack which didn't give me a good sound. The Behringer has an XLR input so I wanted to try that. Did a lot of research on mikes and settled on this one. It was a good choice. I purchased the Kopul Studio Elite 4000 XLR cable along with the mike to make sure I had a quality cable connected to the mike. It's a condenser mike so it needs phantom power which the Behringer mixer supplies. The mike's cardiod pattern suppresses background noise not coming from the front of the mike. Note that you don't talk into the top of the mike, but rather into the side. Thus, the mike is optimized for sound coming directly in front of it. So far, I'm very happy with the mike.

It sounds clean and looks great in chrome! I even bought 2 and trying out stereo micing various sources. I'm using a standard hoop-type pop filter, which is working great on the plosives. But, I've got a couple large foam hats on the way, just so I can get a little closer with vocals.

Excellent mic !!!

Great little mics! Very sturdy build!! Sound is better than expected at this price point. Although the noise is about what you would expect at this price point the high SPL makes up for it, especially on high output sources. Very happy with the pair I bought!

I had my company buy three of these mic sets and for some reason the audio volume dips during recordings. WE connected everything fine and plug it into Rodecaster pro but each time we do a podcast the volume dips and comes back up on a few seconds. Distance between speaker and mic has not changed, Could you say what could be the cause?
Asked by: Samantha
If you are using the RodeCaster Pro Integrated Podcast Production Studio, then the Audio-Technica AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphones should be connected directly to the XLR mic inputs on the RodeCaster Pro with phantom power turned on. It sounds like you may have the compressor and/or master compressor effects turned on and possibly set too high. The compressor is used to smooth and balance the dynamic range in your audio so your voice is clear, punchy, and intelligible. It can even out the audio so the softest parts of your speech can be heard and the loudest parts of your speech will not be overpowering or distorted. The master compressor affects the entire output of your podcast, so if the problem occurs with all of the mics, that may be what is causing the issue. Check the settings on both the regular and master compressor effects and adjust them as needed. Here are links to Rode's online user guide which provides useful information and tutorial videos showing how to use the built-in effects and processors included with the RodeCaster Pro:

How do you attach the mic mount to the mic stand? the "male" end on the stand is too big for the "female" end on the mic mount
Asked by: Brian
Hi Marty, Can you please provide a step-by-step video on how to do this? I've tried to attach the microphone per your instructions (removing the 5/8" to 3/8" adapter and either I'm an idiot or the reflection filter/microphone stand simply does not fit. It states in the instructions that if you are using a handheld-style or shotgun microphone to attach a mic clip (not included) to the 5/8" adapter. This kit is perfect but if I need to be an additional microphone clip, then that should have been included in the kit and the price adjusted accordingly. Thanks.
