Serving the needs of people who record podcasts or perform at live shows, this Audio-Technica AT2005USB Microphone Pack offers almost everything you need to get up a good sound out of the box, all while monitoring comfortably, and enjoying pro-studio accessories to boot. The kit includes the AT2005USB, a handheld dynamic mic with a USB output for digital recording, and an XLR output for use with mixers, preamps, interfaces, and house PA systems. Also included are a pair of ATH-20x monitoring headphones for listening to your audio as well as a boom arm that affixes to your desk, just like it would in a professional broadcasting environment. This boom has its own USB cable, in addition to the one provided with the AT2005USB.

Audio-Technica AT2005USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone

If you need one mic to handle anything from lead vocals on the stage to podcast recording directly to computers, the Audio-Technica AT2005USB will come in handy, while providing almost all the accessories you need. This is a handheld dynamic microphone that can connect to preamps, mixers, interfaces, and house PA systems over XLR—and computers over USB.

You probably see the potential: if you want to travel to the gig with your own microphone, the AT2005USB can be your live vocal mic. If you want to take the mic to a buddy’s house for a conversational podcast, the AT2005USB will be your panel mic. And finally, whenever you want to record or stream your own solo content, you can sit the mic atop its included desktop stand, route the included USB cable from the mic to the computer, and get started right away.

Fits Your Needs

The AT2005USB features both XLR and USB outputs that enable flexible digital recording to any Mac- or Windows-based computer workstation, while simultaneously connected to any analog mixer, preamplifier, or PA system.

Handheld Form Factor

This solidly constructed mic is designed to be held in your hand, though it can also be mounted on a stand—such as the one included with the mic. Because of its design, the mic lends itself to comedy shows and comedy podcasts, though it'll work for just about any vocal-centric purpose.

Cardioid Polar Pattern for Stage & Home Use

The microphone makes use of a directional cardioid polar pattern to minimize off-axis sound. This polar pattern naturally, yet effectively tamps down room tone and focuses the audio capture on what's directly in front of the mic. That's why it's equally effective on the stage and in the home-studio.

Built-In 3.5mm Headphone Jack

The mic offers a headphone jack for monitoring, and a recessed dial for adjusting volume. Just plug a pair of headphones into the AT2005USB's 3.5mm jack, and you'll be able to listen to your broadcast-quality audio in all its glory.

Easy-to-Use Controls, Minimal Powering Required

The mic offers a simple on/off switch for the XLR output. This acts as a mute, which can come in handy when live. This switch has absolutely no bearing on powering the mic—in fact, as this is a dynamic microphone, it requires no power to run when used in the analog domain. When you're plugged into a digital device, such as a computer, the mic will draw power from the computer to operate the digital interface.

Broadcast-Quality Audio Capture

The mic records audio at 16-bit / 48 kHz, giving you the broadcast standard for media playback. It's also worth noting that it can simultaneously record digital audio over USB and route analog audio over its XLR connection, so you can effectively mirror its output if you so choose.

Included Hardware

In addition to the mic, the AT2005USB includes a foldable desktop tripod stand, a mic clip, a foam windscreen, a USB cable, and an XLR mic cable, giving you almost everything you need to get started.

Audio-Technica ATH-M20x Closed-Back Monitor Headphones | Black

Bringing the acclaimed features of the M-Series headphones to a price point that's accessible for all, the black Audio-Technica ATH-M20x monitor headphones offer solid build quality and audio performance for musicians and content creators recording and mixing at home. Outfitted with 40mm dynamic drivers and an over-ear, closed-back design, the ATH-M20x headphones deliver enhanced bass response and wide bandwidth (15 Hz to 20 kHz) while isolating you from outside sounds.

Thanks to the 15° swiveling earcups, high-quality materials, and generous cushioning on the headband and earpads, the headphones are both durable and comfortable to wear. Exiting from the left earcup, the attached 9.8' cable reduces tangles and simplifies channel identification. The cable sports a 3.5mm mini plug for use with mobile devices and computer soundcards, and a 1/4" snap-on adapter is included for easy hookup to audio interfaces, mixers, and stereo receivers.

40mm Drivers

The ATH-M20x features 40mm dynamic drivers with rare earth (neodymium) magnets and CCAW (copper-clad aluminum wire) voice coils for quality sound reproduction at a competitive price point.

Tuned for Enhanced Bass Response

The drivers and headphone design work together to provide a sonic signature tuned for enhanced bass performance. With a frequency response of 15 Hz to 20 kHz, the ATH-M20x can reproduce a full spectrum of tones.

Over-Ear, Sound-Isolating Design

The ATH-M20x utilizes a circumaural design that contours around the ears for excellent sound isolation in loud environments. This over-ear, closed-back style is optimal for reducing bleed and separating you from outside sounds.

15° Swiveling Earcups

Equipped with 15° swiveling earcups, the ATH-M20x ensures a great fit.

Attached Single-Sided Cable

Keeping it simple and clean, the ATH-M20x incorporates an attached 9.8' cable that exits from the left side. This increases convenience and makes it easier to distinguish the different sides of the headphone.

3.5mm Plug and 1/4" Snap-On Adapter

The attached cable is terminated with a straight 3.5mm TRS mini plug for easy hookup to mobile devices, MP3 players, and computer headphone jacks. A 1/4" snap-on adapter is included for compatibility connectivity with audio interfaces, mixers, and dedicated headphone amplifiers.

Solid Build Quality

Thanks to the high-quality materials used in the ATH-M20x, the headphones balance comfort and strength while delivering enhanced audio and effective isolation.
