When I first purchased the mic I had some doubts, but then I played with the mic for a little bit and it blew my mind. Thought it does pick up alot of background noise, but with the proper software that's no problem. This mic is great for vocals (rap, singing etc...) podcast, voice overs you name it.

(I rap and I have couple of song on youtube that i recorded with this mic if you want to check out the audio quality you can click the link or copy and paste ----> '[...]

It also has zero latency, which means you can hear yourself in realtime which is a plus. The mics build quality is absolutely excellent, but the stand that it comes with is a little cheap so you might want to pick up a alternate mic stand, but I rather have better sound quality than stand quality. This mic is great for beginners, if you're looking to pick up this mic for your home studio or you just want to do voice overs i recommend it. Its amazing and affordable. I rate this mic a 9.5/10 simply because the two buttons on the mic are kind of flimsy, i thought my mic broke but it was just the flimsy buttons, but the buttons shouldn't talk you out of buying this amazing mic

This mic is the BOMB DIGGEDY, It's not as good as the AT2020, but it's a nice thing to have if you don't quite wanna cough up the cash. It's definitely not like, professional. It's more like a 'I make Flash cartoons in my mom's basement and I get Cheetos all over my desk and I don't have a job' kinda mic. The quality can get you by, but as any REAL audio recorder knows, like, 80% of the quality of your audio is based on things like how much the walls around you bounce audio back into your mic and whether you have a fan blowing or a TV on in the background. If you're in a room where the walls don't bounce the sound waves around a lot, this is gonna sound pretty good.
The audio monitor is really nice, too. Basically, you plug your headphones in and turn up the volume of the microphone in Windows and you can hear yourself while you talk. There's no delay, so it's not bothersome. If there was any delay, it'd get annoying. Just take my word for it, the audio monitoring's a good thing.

I have two gripes with this thing, though.
For starters, Audio Technica, (are you listening by the way? Open your EARS, Mr. Technica. This is important.) the blue LED light on the front of the microphone would be a good candidate for a replacement for the sun. It's so bright. Good GOD is it bright. You'll wanna cover it up. What I did was I opened up the microphone and put a few bits of paper towel over the LED and it took the brightness down a bit.
Here's my biggest gripe, but like the other one, it's technically fixable. The stand that comes with this microphone is THE WORST STAND EVER CREATED BY MAN. Geez, what were they THINKING? It's a flimsy little tripod and it can JUST BARELY hold this microphone. The ATR2500 has some weight to it. It's not a light microphone.

This mic is awesome. Got this for future podcasts and videos, and the audio quality is great. My headset mic just didn't cut it, but this mic is just fantastic, and is a better option than the Blue Snowball.

First of all sorry for my English which is foreign language for me. But I hope I'll can explain.
Yesterday I've got this mic from Amazon. The package was not damaged or opened, but after unboxing I found quite noticeble scratch on the aluminium body. Defeinitly it is not shipping problem as I said. It is very strange to see any scrathes on the brand new product.
The second problem is more serious because it is not only cosmetic damage. I look through metal grid and I'm pretty sure that round rubber ring should holds metal capsule straight and secure, but it doesn't. This main metal element is just skewed in its place! It turned to about 45 degrees! So cardiod diagramm is turned side from the speaker too. Definitly it is not normal.
I had to reassemble mic and improve this problem, and now it works properly. But hey that's not what I expect when I buy brand new device.

The cable that connects to the mic is loose. The quality of the sound is really low, so is the volume when you record. The only solution I found was by fiddling with the loose connection until I think what the sound quality SHOULD be, but it usually reverts back to the problem. Other than that it's a great find!

I needed a good mic for recording content for my internet stream. I have never used more than a mic on a headset with my computer and the one I have just wasn't going to cut it. So I made the investment in this mic after about 20 hours reading about others like the Snowball, Yeti, MXL tempo, Samson Meteor and this one. I am quite happy with the sound and the almost-zero latency monitor jack.

There are some things that I want to say about it.

1. The stand that comes with it is cheap, cheap, cheap. I bought a nice solid metal desktop mic stand for $13. Worth the price (also bought a pop filter).

2. The large screw.nut that connect the mic to the stand adapter it always loose. I thought of trying to tighten it with a screwdriver, but I am afraid to break the plastic, which is not the best quality. The plastic stand adapter components feel like they will break very easily. I decided to not tighten with a screwdriver and have got it to stay pretty well.

3. The stand tightening tab wheel is also plastic and am afraid it will break or strip very easily. Be very careful when connecting this setup to any stand. It appears to easily breakable.

4. Technically when connected to your PC Windows sets up the mic as the default output sound device. You can change this in the Windows Sound Control Panel but it should not overtake what you may already have setup.

5. It does pick up quite a bit of area sounds when recording. You can fix all this with the right audio editing software (I use Audacity & Goldwave). Just an FYI.

6. The zero latency headphone jack it not quite zero latency. It is a nice try but I it is a bit short on its goals. Also the gain buttons on the headphone jack are again made of plastic and have a very cheap feel.
