I was looking for a low cost entry mic that was not a USB interface (USB interfaces have so many issues randomly as far as feedback and white noise). So I looked for an entry level XLR Microphone and there are a few popular picks.
I was pretty dead set on getting the Audio Technica AT2020 but the MXL 990 was also a popular choice for the roughly $100 price point. I ended up opting for the MXL because I was budgeting including my audio interface and random peripherals (cables, boom arm) and the Midnight color was actually $70 where the standard silver was the full price $100.
Well this mic is definitely worth the full $100 either way.
First, commenting on the Midnight edition, it is beautiful. It is a deep purple, but looks very black at first glance so it doesn't clash with my boom arm, cable, and pop filter. Not that it would be a deal breaker, but it just looks really nice.
But for the sound...this mic can perform.
Literally plugging into my audio interface (Scarlett 2i2) this thing sounded great.
After applying a few filters (FIR and, compressor mainly) it sounds absolutely amazing.
Again, I am doing youtube hobby work, so it's all talking I am judging this by, so I can personally attest that if you are going to podcast or game stream this mic is a fantastic pick. But even though I've never used it for singing, the voice clarity is so great I can't imagine it not being equally as great for that as well.
This mic simply performs on all promises it makes.
If you are looking for a condenser mic in the $100 price range, this guy is great.
I have had the “world’s quitest condenser” microphone as well as a $400 mic and this FOR ME is doing the best recording yet!
Suuuuuuper clean and grasps all the frequency of my voice without tons of hissing and white noise that needs to be mixed out.
The shockmount is annoying with the placement of the clasps for adjustments but the quality of the MICROPHONE is impeccable. And iGot it on sale for $70 and saved 530 dollars by replacing my other 2 with this one.
