Style Name: Microphone Verified Purchase
I've been recording professionally for 27 years; Music, radio commercials and television mostly. So I'll try to give you the information you need to make your purchase.

I've owned and used so many mics and brands through the years that I can't remember them all, but I can I say I've never had a bad A-T. 4033's, 4050's and 4080's I use every week and have for years, the 4033 going back to the mid 90's and the 2020 is just a lower priced electret condenser from the A-T family. You have no idea the % of recordings that you're hearing this brand on, it's used by almost every studio on every continent, I work in the US, Italy to Scotland and can attest to this. But first let me tell you, very simply, where the negative reviewers went wrong.

This is a XLR connection phantom powered mic, which is pro and best. So it requires a phantom powered XLR input, which all pro equipment provides and is also standard on most home recording audio interfaces. Which you should really purchase along with this, if you haven't already, because for around $100 you'll improve your recording and playback and have a preamp and monitoring, you'll find one by searching audio interfaces. I have a Roland TRI CAPTURE Audio Interface and a Focusrite I use just for playback in my office and den but they work well and you don't need Avid HD's to get started. Audio interface is just another name for an external sound card but will provide the proper input and gain meter. Getting your interface away from the electronically noisy computer has been SOP since the dawn of digital. I see that small USB mixers are available, which would be another option.

"Opinion of a College Student Majoring in Music Technology"

I bought the microphone in 2010(for $65 on Amazon), and worked it nonstop since then. The microphone has been sat on and dropped multiple times. The rail body on the microphone was crushed inwards a bit, but the quality of the recordings never failed! (It really is "built like a tank" like many said, and does last long.)

I noticed that a lot of reviewers are making statements about the best microphone within the $100/$500 budget and naming all sorts of microphones as better solutions. I personally have tried all of the entry level MXL condensers, Sterling Audio, Studio Projects, etc. From all of those options, I do enjoy the AT-2020 best because of the "lack of characteristic" (Although it is a bit on the brighter side compared to many other microphones, considering) and it's clarity. You can record just about anything on this microphone, like a multi-purpose tool. (On a side note, my opinion of the best microphone under a $500 budget is the Avantone CV-12.) After purchasing this microphone, this has been my "go-to" microphone whenever I'm drafting a sketch or laying down demo recordings to share and keep as reference. Its less time consuming to set up with the audio interface than setting up the tube condensers with external power sources and power conditioners and then cleaning up afterwards to store them. The fact that this mic is built so well and comes with a minimal "leather" pouch, lets me just carry this in my backpack without having to worry about it getting crushed or destroyed. In my opinion, this is the best microphone for beginners who wants to record their own material.

I bought this as a gift for a friend he was really happy with it but, I have a completely different view. The AT2020 is a pretty bright mic which sounds good at first but once you layer tracks on top of each other it can sound very harsh. Second it is not a true large diaphragm condenser. It is a very good mic for people starting out in music or just using it for podcasts, but there are a bunch of better mics near this price. Two that come to mind are the MXL V67g and Studio projects B1 (stay away from the studio projects C1) both exceptional microphones for the price. Although there is one mic you that is a bit more expensive but is absolutely amazing, the MXL 2003a. A lot of people have claimed the studio projects C1 sounds like the Neumann u87 it doesn't, the MXL 2003a however sounds very similar and is easily the best LDC mic under $500. With that being said the AT2020 is not a bad microphone but it is not great, to people who have just used built in mics on there computer or camera this will blow them away but as time goes on they will learn the limitations of this microphone.

Although to be fair I have a lot of experience in pro audio and production, so I maybe a bit overly critical. One thing is for sure though; there are definitely better mics in or near this price range.

Great microphone, I use it with my cheap/budget Behringer mixer, the sound is good and if I turn up the gain it will pick up everything in the room. It is great for recording acoustic guitar and vocals, don't start layering the vocals though, it starts to sound kind of weird.
