This microphone is quickly becoming a standard for podcasters. It can be used without a mixer or preamp by connecting it to a computer with a USB cable. If you want to use it with a mixer, it also has XLR output. Both the USB and XLR outputs can be used at the same time.

The mic's sound is excellent. The podcaster's microphone of choice - and justifiably so - is the Heil PR40. It's the one that Leo Laporte uses on his Internet and radio shows. If you can afford a PR40, buy one. However, if you want to save some money and get a fabulous value, buy this mic. It's cheaper than a Shure SM58, a Blue Snowball, or Audio Technica AT2020, and it sounds better.

This Audio Technica mic, the ATR2100-USB, is just kickin'! INCREDIBLE off-axis rejection at 90º for you stage types, almost absolute rear-end rejection. It sounds as good as comparative tests I've heard of the Apogee MiC (all respect to Apogee, a wonderful company) and comes with all the extras: tripod stand, both USB and XLR cables of realistic length, mic clip you can use on the tripod stand or a regular mic stand.

Sound is, of course, the bottom line: What should you reasonably expect of a mic that costs so little? To be shocked, that's what. Excellent sound, slight presence rise at about 2K, peaks a bit higher at 5K. Amazing for around $36 on Amazon, and it sounds better than some AT mics I''ve used that cost a couple hundred dollars; less peaky and intrusive in the high mids. With that more moderate presence boost, it'd likely be super for guitar as well, though I've not experimented with that as yet. Wow! I've run a recording/production suite since 1978, and have worked with many mics costing as much as 30x this price: Neumanns, AKGs, other Audio Technicas, Rødes, Sennheisers, on and on. For my purposes, this $36 mic (at time of my purchase) stands up in this good company as being quite usable, and for voice, perhaps almost in range of some of the best. No, it's not an $8,000 Neumann. It doesn't need to be.

I have no complaints about the excessive noise floor that others have mentioned. Frequency response is excellent, distortion remarkably low. Yes, it rolls off rapidly at the bottom end at around 50Hz, but you're going to be rolling that off anyway most of the time. You may have to look elsewhere if you're recording taiko drums or whalesong. Or maybe not. Thirty six dollars! I keep shaking my head. This feels like a mistake.

I bought 2 of these mics to use as guest mics on my podcast and I'm floored by their sound quality. I have a Shure SM7B mic costing 7 times as much as this mic and although I like the Shure a little better, I'm sure that this is because of my investment. The ability to work with both USB and and XLR is another great plus.
The sound quality is amazing for a mic in this price range and in my opinion is equal to other mics costing at least triple the price. Unlike another rater, I haven't had any problems with my mics using the USB or a mixer.
This mic is cheap enough to buy as just a Skype mic, but also good enough to work well with podcasting, and by this I mean head and shoulders over some other cheap mics like the Blue Snowball. Also, because it is a dynamic mic it also cuts down on the background noise.
Please don't feel that this is some sort of starter mic, it isn't. Even for triple the price it would still be the best sounding mic in my humble opinion. Also, my Mackie mixer has no problem powering this mic and does so easily, plus it works great on USB mode.

Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone

I'm a filmmaker that makes tutorials on visual Effects and Graphic Design for Youtube (Agent2018) so I needed something that was clear with no hums or hisses. Something that would sound profession without the professional price, and this is it! I've tried using a ton of different mics but nothing has worked quite like the Audio-Technica ATR2100 microphone. It's clean, clear and easy to connect due to not needing any drivers to install, just plug and go.

The other great things about this mic is it come with all the cables you'll need, a mini mic stand for your desk and a mic holder. The mini desk stand does feel cheap and will probably transfer noise if u tap or bump the desk, but if you get a regular floor stand you should be good. Also, The mic has a headphone jack with volume control for monitoring...AMAZING!

All in all, I would recommend this to anyone looking to get a mic to sing, vlog, do voice overs, podcasts or online tutorials.

Pros:
Great price.
Sound is clear.
Easy set up.
Comes with all the cables.
Separate headphone jack on mic with volume control for monitoring.

Cons:
Mini stand is cheap. (petty, I know. lol)

I really like this microphone. One little tip, at first I though it was noisy after normalizing my wav file. But then I experimented with turning up the mic levels in my computer to almost 95%, and that did the trick. This is such a nice sounding microphone, I even purchased a second one.

The Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB gets five stars from me for an awesome mix of sound quality, affordability and flexibility. I have used it to do work for paying customers including podcast and voice-over recordings via USB connection directly to my Macintosh computers and live event recording via XLR connection to a TASCAM DR-60D. The tripod stand it comes with is a nice addition, though the tripod on the identical-performing AT2005USB has more adjustment via a locking ring. The mic produces clean audio that meets all my needs or this type of mic.
