Stay away from this if you have windows 10


I spent a lot of money on this, and the quality has always been poor. Volume levels are very low even if you talk into the microphone at very close range. The only fix is to digitally up the volume with all the hiss and hum that this brings with it. It turns out it's a windows driver issue, and audio-technica have completely failed to provide a replacement driver. Quite frankly, I feel as though I've had my money stolen from me.

If you can only have one mic...


The AT2035 has a VERY flat response curve making it an excellent mic for practically all recording needs - no "voodoo" as alluded to by some condenser mics, and subsequently no natty eq-ing in post! It also happens to have the largest condenser in AT's entire range of condenser mics and is quite sensitive - yet provides excellent off axis noise rejection. Build quality is excellent, being produced in Taiwan - a very pro piece of kit. I have been recording for 40 years and used 100s of microphones in a variety of settings, but if I had to choose one mic for everything the 2035 would be my choice. The AT2035 is well worth every penny, and Sam Ash not only has the best price, but they back their gear up with fast shipping and incredible service - thanks once again S.A., you guys rock!

Stay away if you are using windows 10


Was a great mic when I first bought it and used it with windows 8. After uppgrading to windows 10 the sound quality is really bad. It still "works" but the recorded volume is extremely low. If you raise the volume, the noise will get so high that the recording is trash. Many people have complained about this, but no action is made by Audio Technica or Microsoft.




Will not work on my Windows 10 laptop.


Worked great on my laptop until I updated it from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Worked great while I could use it...

May not work with Windows 10

I am impressed


First off, I am not a professional in this field. In fact this is the most expensive microphone that I have ever used. However that means I went into this blind and I have a pretty different perspective in this field. This prouduct was very easy to use. I just plugged it in and it worked. I use the microphone for some YouTube videos and it was very simple to use in every program. Just to test, I I tried it out in the windows camera app as well as some apps like skype and google hangouts. In those programs you're not really going to want to buy a mic this expensive and you may want to go for something cheaper. In the end this is an easy and good sounding mic that is a great choice if your just starting out.

YES, it's worth the small price!!!


Well, let me start by sharing... I owned a Music Store in the late 70s early 80s- We sold Audio Technica products even back then... I'm a Professional Musician, Producer, Multi-Instrumentalist... One has to step back from the instantaneous, social media- bash, dash, "hecto-confusing", gratification/confusion World we now live in... By stepping back... remember what you paid for this mic... It's well worth the admission , the set up ( plug and play), and the ever hanging ways to records music and voice. This , considering it's price, really checks all of the boxes... Enjoy your time, enjoy your music and enjoy LIFE :-) Thx AT- good Mic at this price point!!!

Great Mic


This is one of the best usb mics on the market. I use this microphone to do voice overs and a twitch talk show. I love it, it's easy to use and has no static like the Bule yeti.




Excellent on acoustic guitars!


I've used this Microphone for three years now and love it! It makes recording my acoustic guitar fun and easy. I aim it at the 12 fret, about 10 inches away and its magic everytime! This microphone showed me that you dont need to spend $2K to get high quality!

Taking back to shop


I bought this mic, plugged it in and had an afternoon of low-quality, low-level recording issues in Audacity, Ableton Live and then Adobe Audition. A quick lookup on the web revealed that there are a multitude of issues with nearly all USB powered mics since the release of Windows 10. I also note that the mic has been discontinued (without explanation) by audo-technica.
