5.0 out of 5 stars A rich sound from a USB Microphone that will seriously upgrade your Stream/Podcast/Vidoes/Calls
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 December 2020
For those of you familiar with studi grade microphones, the 2500x may feels less feature-heavy than some of the competition with a single cardioid condenser, however, the output of this plug and play microphone is phenomenal for the price.

It comes with useful accessories: a desktop tripod stand, a clip for standard mic stands, and two cables: 1x USB-C to USB-A, and 1x USB-C to USB-C. I set this micrphone up on a flexible boom arm with a ATR2500x specific shock mount and foam shield. All in a spend £140. An investment for the layman, cheap as chips for the audiophile. The setup is simple with Windows 10 and Open Broadcast Studio and took no more than 30 seconds. It works with any streaming or video conference software with ease.

The microphone has fixed gain and is designed for conversational dialogue upto (in my opinion) 30 centimeters from your mount, though is still great for recording music. The audio is clean with a wide frequency response. Bit rate is high at for a USB microphone 24/192kHz and there was not any phasing.

In a perfect world, this mic would have adjustable gain levels and input monitoring; however the quality of the mics output for the price you pay for it is such a good deal that I cant complain. Would buy again and I recommend you do to.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 March 2021
Great quality Mic and incredibly durable, feels premium. Only drawbacks are the volume control and the location of the headphone Jack. The volume controls have a very loud click to them which often gets picked up by the mic itself, perhaps a volume wheel for the next model and the audio Jack for headphones is directly on the front which can sometimes lead it to getting in the way of your keyboard
