To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Very please with the ATR2100-USB. I read several reviews going into the purchase and they all spoke highly of this mic. This is one of those times where the reviews were spot on. Super happy with the product and the short delivery time.
The biggest reason I can confidently recommend this microphone, though, is how well it works for the students in my writing classes. They use the ATR2100 for recording podcasts and the audio components of digital stories. The mics are “plug-n-play” for Macs and most Windows operating systems after XP. There are no drivers to install and the microphone will work with almost any software. They just need to be plugged in so that the machine can recognize them. All-in-all, this is an excellent, no-nonsense, inexpensive microphone.
Perfect product for my podcast. The sound is clear but I do use an app to help with sound. My friend who is podcaster has actually said he getting one due to fact he paid cheaper for his and not as good.
This is the current model of one that was recommended by one of the main on-line course creators and I can see why. It is simple to use, very clear and has optional inputs. I have used it with the Zoom H5 for recording so far, and I am expecting the same performance used as a desk microphone with my PC. It is light and easy to carry. The case is a bit plasticky and won't stand too much of a battering but I don't intend to throw it around. Only one word of warning, I purchased through Geartrex and at the time of ordering they were not VAT registered so I cannot reclaim the VAT paid. This made it 20% more expensive than it needed to be, for a business purchase. For a private purchase it makes no difference.
I purchased this mic after researching best microphones for picking up as little background noise as possible and that also offers mic monitoring so I can hear my own voice during conference calls. I'm a fan of mic monitoring as I feel that I have more control over my voice due to being able to monitor my own voice in real time. This mic ticked all the boxes for me - the only thing I'd change if it was possible would be to offer a desktop version rather than being in an actual microphone format for looking more aesthetic on a desk.
Delivered very well packed! This is a great start off product for people wanting to record themselves for podcasts etc! Or for people that want to upgrade a cheap or old recording device, There is a reason this product is so popular with Youtubers! Great value overall for what your getting!
Excellent mic, definitely a value for money. I record in a noisy environment with cars passing by, office workers around, some really noisy cpu fans around. I have many condenser mics that I have been using. In fact I bough another one Blue Yeti, which has been popular choice for a lot of youtubers. What they forget to understand is how noisy can it get in India. Its very difficult to find a place with less noise that condenser mics need. ATR 2100 is sturdy, works well in noisy environments by cutting most of the noise and picks up the voice in front very well. Only limitation is you have to be very close to the mic, not away by more then 2 inches. The quality of recordings are also great. I am already loving my dynamic mic.
