Audio Technica ATR2100x-USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone Product Description
The ATR2100x-USB offers high-quality articulation and intelligibility perfect for home studio recording, field recording, podcasting, voice over, and on-stage use. Its cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source.
The microphone also features a built-in headphone jack with volume control that allows you to directly monitor your microphone’s output during recording. The microphone’s focused pickup pattern delivers excellent off-axis rejection, while its A/D converter with up to 24-bit, 192 kHz sampling rate ensures clear, articulate sound reproduction.
The ATR2100x-USB is a versatile content creation microphone, designed for live performance, podcasting, and voiceover use. This rugged handheld microphone offers two outputs: a USB output that connects to your computer or other device for digital recording, and an XLR output that connects to a sound system’s conventional microphone input for use in live performance.
The ATR2100x-USB also offers a high-quality analog-to-digital converter (24-bit, up to 192 kHz) for excellent fidelity, and a headphone jack with level control for direct monitoring from the microphone. Its cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of unwanted sounds from the sides and rear. The mic includes an on/off switch and comes with two 2 m (6.6′) USB cables (USB-C to USB-C, USB-C to USB-A) and a 3 m (9.8′) XLRF-to-XLRM cable for maximum versatility.
