Why buy the Audio-Technica 2035?

The Audio-Techica 2035 is a highly versatile microphone that performs very well in-studio and on the road. This microphone is proof that you don’t need to break the bank to get your hands on a superior, easy to use, high performing microphone. Here are our top three reasons why you should buy this mic:
  • Less work is required in post production - the 2035 model comes with a switchable 80Hz high-pass filter which yanks out hum and a 10 dB pad that removes any background noise, cutting down your post production workload.  
  • A custom shock-mount is included — which isolates the mic from unwanted mechanical noise - a must-have for highly professional production.
  • It’s made to isolate and capture desired sounds from unwanted background noise — made possible thanks to the large diaphragm for clear natural sound combined with the cardioid polar pattern, which reduces sounds picked up from the sides and rear of the microphone.

Before I started podcasting in 2016, I did a great deal of research on various budget-friendly mics. I had recently purchased a mixer, and I wanted to upgrade from USB to XLR. I eventually decided on the Audio-Technica AT2035 Cardioid Condenser mic as it was in my budget and consistently praised for its quality. Three years later and the AT2035 has proven itself to be easy to use with consistently fantastic quality. The audio is always clear, clean, and crisp. I couldn't be happier with this mic!
