Musicians need to be online content creators to be successful – we wear a lot of hats.

So having a suitable microphone for every recording scenario would naturally become like a hammer for a builder, right?

Well, the AT2020USB-X USB-C Cardioid Condenser Microphone is that hammer. It’s a reimagining of the popular AT2020USB+, and it’s here to create your professional sound.

Audio Technica’s AT2020USB-X is “purpose built” for musicians, streamers, podcasters and other content creators. In fact, its easy-to-use design also makes it a great first microphone for anyone.

Its USB-C plug-and-play capability lets anyone jump in and start recording.

Although powered by USB, the microphone has the “critically acclaimed, award-winning sound of the original AT2020 microphone”. Here’s what Audio Technica has to say about the specs:

  1. Enhanced 24-bit/96kHz A/D converter for clear, natural Hi-Res sound
  2. A built-in headphone jack with a high-output internal amplifier that delivers clarity, volume and detail
  3. A soft-touch mute button on the body
  4. Directly monitor volume and mix mic and computer audio with onboard controls

The addition of the two-state LED light rings lets you see when your mic is on or off.

The custom desktop stand has seen an upgrade with better stability.

Finally, the USB-C to USB-A cable with a USB-A to USB-C adapter expands compatibility.

Audio Technica’s AT2020USB-X is available now for $149.00. At this price, you get what you pay for.

The AT2020USB-X promises to be the reliable hammer you need to build your sound, whether you’re wearing headphones or earphones.
