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

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.

Wonderful mic although I wish I could use a standard audio connection instead of just a USB. Maybe there is an adapter. I also purchased an anti-vibiration mount but it was too small so I ended up buying the Samson SP01 Spider Shockmount which threads into the bottom of the mic and is also the same silver finish so it looks great together. Since purchasing the Samson SP01 Spider Shockmount, I have been very pleased with the look and function of this microphone. Please make sure you get the correct shock mount. See attached photo.

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.

The Audio-Technica ATR2500 is an amazing microphone.

I primary use this mic in order to record vocal audio for instructional tutorials, and while playing games.

THE GOOD
• Audio quality. I am not an audiophile, but even I was able to tell a big difference. It is such a major step above the audio quality recorded from my C920 webcam.

• Easy set up. You screw the mic into the stand. Plug the USB into the mic and computer. You are good to go. No real software set up or anything needed.

THE BAD
• The LED Light is bright. Really bright. Bright enough to a point where you could use this as a nightlight if you wanted to. I ended up cutting a small piece of a post-it note and scotch tape placing it over the light. This way I still know it’s on, but am not blinded.

• The stand is okay. A lot of other reviewers have complaints about the “flimsy” stand, but I do not see so much wrong with it. If you find the right angle, and secure it then it should not tip over unless you really try to tip it over. I am also using a pop filter, so the weight of that might be helping it stay balanced.

• It does pick up keyboard and mouse clicks pretty easily. This is to be expected as I place this mic on my desk right next to the keyboard. I am not taking stars away because of this, but it is a warning to others who plan to use the ATR2500 in a similar way.

Overall, I highly recommend this thing.
