Musicians need to be online content creators to be successful – we wear a lot of hats.

So owning a microphone fit for every recording scenario would naturally become like a hammer to a builder, no?

Well, the USB-C AT2020USB-X cardioid condenser microphone is that hammer. It’s a reimagining of the popular AT2020USB+, and it’s here to build your professional sound.

Audio Technica’s AT2020USB-X is “specially designed” for musicians, streamers, podcasters, and other content creators. In fact, its easy to use design makes it a great first microphone for anyone too.

Its USB-C plug-and-play capability allows anyone to jump right in and start recording.

Though it’s USB powered, the microphone has the “critically acclaimed and award-winning sound of the original AT2020 microphone”. Here’s what Audio Technica have to say about the specs:

  1. Upgraded 24-bit/96 kHz A/D converter for a clear and natural high-resolution sound
  2. A built-in headphone jack with a high-output internal amplifier that delivers clarity, volume, and detail
  3. A soft-touch mute button on the body
  4. Directly monitor volume and blend between mic & computer audio with on-board controls

The addition of the two-state LED indicator ring lights allows you to see when your mic is on or muted.

The custom desk stand has seen an upgrade with better stability.

Finally, USB-C to USB-A cable with a USB-A to USB-C adapter expands compatibility.

Audio Technica’s AT2020USB-X is available now for $149.00. At this price, you’re getting a lot for your money.

The AT2020USB-X promises to be the trusty hammer that you need to build your sound, whether you’re wearing a hard hat or headphones.

So, are you ready to start building?
