If you’re looking for a cheap or affordable yet high quality microphone, check out the Audio Technica AT 2005. The AT 2005 is a versatile mic that can work as a field handheld mic for run and gun interviews, and you can use it in the studio for voice overs, podcasts, and narration.
Cheap Microphone Audio Technica AT 2005
The best part is that the AT 2005USB is a hybrid microphone, meaning that it can be connected via USB or XLR cable. I’ve only used it once or twice, but I’m very impressed with the quality. Other pros echo the fact that the AT 2005 rivals much more costly mics like the ElectroVoice RE-20 (which is my main studio mic).
The price of the Audio Technica AT 2005 is just about unbeatable in terms of price and quality. It runs from $50.00 – $80.00 which is an excellent value.
