Audio-technica AT2020USB-X: An upgrade with stylish design and features

Audio-Technica has released the AT2020USB-X microphone. Aimed at content creators, it’s all about quality and fancy features.

Audio-Technica is an audio company well known to recording studios and music lovers alike for its range of M Series headphones, and well known in the vinyl world for its wide range of turntables made for the home, audiophiles and DJs.

Their mics are widely used by professionals and enthusiasts alike, fitting that mold of affordability with quality, and sitting firmly in the land of affordability with high quality, a very difficult line to follow.

An update to their AT2020USB+, the AT2020USB-X Cardioid Condenser USB Microphone has the same award-winning sound as the original AT2020, a cardioid condenser that found popularity in a host of studios as the perfect workhorse. You will find reviews of this original microphone with more than 4.5 stars, with most users expressing the high quality and great price, and now it is even better.

With podcasters, streamers, and other content creators in mind, the AT2020USB-X has features like a touch-sensitive mute button, a headphone output on the microphone, a mix control for monitoring between direct audio and computer audio, the most rugged desktop computer you’ve ever used and a 24-bit/96kHz sample rate (previous model had a 16-bit/48kHz sample rate). Noteworthy mention about the stand again – it’s an awesome accessory thanks to Audio-Technica!

With content creation at its peak, thanks to the pandemic, the need for an affordable and easy-to-use kit only makes our lives that much less stressful. Whether we know it or not, audio quality and broadcast standards are on the rise, with even the Grammys calling for 96kHz file delivery. It’s good to know that this USB microphone has you covered for future audio conversions and quality standards.

Staying away from the tech talk, this USB mic looks sexy, feels solid to hold (uncommon in the world of USB mics), and the design is sleek and clean.

The AT2020USB-X comes with a dual-state LED indicator ring that illuminates blue to indicate that the microphone is receiving USB power and
it glows red when audio is muted via that touch-sensitive mute button on the front. A feature sure to brighten up those dimly lit home recording studios in all the right ways.

As far as additional connections and setup go, there’s a shock mount (AT8455) you can buy separately, or you can attach the mic directly to a shock mount, and USB A and C cables come in the box.

The AT2020USB-X is priced at $269 AUD.
