    The ATR2100-USB is designed to take you from the stage to the studio and beyond. This rugged handheld microphone offers two outputs, USB output for digital recording, and an XLR output that connects with a sound system's conventional microphone input for use in live performance. The microphone plugs right into your computer's USB port, and functions seamlessly with your favorite recording software. The ATR2100-USB also offers a quality analog-to-digital converter for excellent fidelity, and a headphone output with level control for monitoring with no audible delay. Its cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of unwanted sounds from the sides and rear. The microphone is ideal for live performance, podcasting, home studio recording, field recording, and voiceover use.

    I use the microphone for recording voice for video, podcasts, etc., and it has been working well for about 6 months or so. It works well into a Mac running MacOS 10.11, simply appearing in the Control Panel. I use a wind cover and a spit shield, and tend to deploy it on a floor stand to get the height right. For me, the included desk stand is too low. I have had no problems with the USB connection, which is the only one I use.

    I do use a bit of bass boost on the final product, and you do need it to be quite close to get good volume; about a fist length away, so try to restrict your gesticulations!

    Overall, good value for money.

    I've been very happy with this mic for the last six months. I've had it set-up in my office on a swing arm in the same spot since purchase. I recently moved the swing arm mic stand and had to disconnect the USB cord from the rear of the mic. Now the mic doesn't work. I tried the same USB cord with my old mic, and it still works fine. I used the ATR-2100 for about 8-15 hours a week, and performance has met my expectations. I'm disappointed in the flimsy connection for the USB. I will likely start the warranty process this week.

      Sounds great, but doesn't last long -- it's broken after less than 2 months. I've tried to connect it via USB with multiple cables across multiple computers and it just isn't being recognized. This seems to be a known problem with this mic but they're still selling 'em.

            I bought this microphone after reading very positive reviews on some voiceover sites. They compared it very favorably to the Hyle PR40. So, it was an instant sell.
            It sounds, in my opinion, better than a Shure sm57 and it can do the same jobs.
            It feels solid!
            It works GREAT for recording in Reaper.
            I am very happy with the mic. I liked it a lot more when I bought it for under $40. but at it's current price, it's still a good product.

                  This mic has lasted me for 2 years with no problems. The audio quality is very good but the audio is not the absolute best because it is very good for the price. I use this for commentary and for singing and I have had no problems. The only thing I would have to say about it is that you have to be fairly close to it to get good volume. Also, it is a bit bass-y from my experiences but it should be fine as it isn't too bad.

                  Used for over a year with no issues. Mostly use for web conferences. Voice quality is high. Not sure what it's frequency range is as I use mainly for voice.

                  Others reviews say USB failed but I haven't had this issue. If USB failed after 3 uses, probably a manufacture defect. I would return and then write a review.

                    I bought this product for my Tutorial recordings. I ordered it from US, as it was not available in stock in india. I got it after long wait.

                    In only two to three uses, the USB no longer works. Its detects the microphone etc. But no sound at all while recorrding.

                    I searched for drivers, but no drivers or updated drivers on net anyhere. On this website also no drivers at all. I tried on windows 8, windows 10 and Mac Book Pro with Mac OS X

                            This thing is junk. Had to send it back once to get a component fixed after 2 uses. The turnaround was good on the mic being "fixed" and returned but it still doesn't work correctly. Windows does not recognize the mic.

                                I bought three of the ATR2100-usb mics in March 2014 for light usage (podcast recording). When I use the XLR output and go through a mixing board, these mics work fine; great tone, noise free, etc.

                                The problem I have is when using the USB connection. For the first six months of very occasional use (twice monthly for up to 20 minutes), the mic worked fine. But no more.

                                First one mic became unusable on my Windows 7 laptop, displaying the error "usb device not recognized". The other mics worked fine, until today when mic #2 "broke".

                                (I subsequently tried the "broken" mics on my mac, same result.)

                                Now I'm left with only one of the original three mics able to be used via the USB connection to the laptop.

                                At this time I cannot recommend the ATR2100-USB.
