The AT2020USB-X is specially designed to meet the needs of podcasters, streamers, and other creators, offering the critically acclaimed, award-winning sound of the original AT2020 with the convenience of plug-and-play USB-C operation. The microphone’s directional pickup (cardioid) keeps the focus on your voice or other chosen sound source, while its high-resolution A/D converter (up  to 24-bit/96 kHz sampling rate) ensures extremely clear, natural sound reproduction.
