Audio-Technica Launches AT2020USB-XP Cardioid Condenser USB Microphone

Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 60 years, announces the launch of the AT2020USB-XP cardioid condenser USB microphone – the latest addition to A-T’s comprehensive lineup of 20 Series content creation products. Competitive features and studio-quality sound have become the calling card of the 20 Series, and the AT2020USB-XP is no exception, delivering ideal performance for streamers, podcasters, and other content creators.

Building on A-T’s most recent USB condenser model, the AT2020USB-X, the AT2020USB-XP includes the same silent touch-sensitive mute switch, built-in headphone jack with volume control and personal mix control to allow for monitoring of the microphone, as well as plug-and-play USB-Type C™ operation. Additions and improvements for the AT2020USB-XP include a 24-bit 192 kHz sampling rate, three levels of noise reduction (via selector switch with LED indicator), automatic gain control (with LED indicator), and the inclusion of a clip-on pop filter.

The microphone’s directional pickup (cardioid) keeps the focus on your voice or other chosen sound source, while its high-resolution A/D converter ensures extremely clear, natural sound reproduction. A two-state LED indicator ring lights blue to indicate that the microphone is receiving USB power and lights red when audio is muted at the microphone. The LED indicator also blinks when peak audio level is reached.

The microphone comes with a custom desk stand and clip-on pop filter, 3/8″-16 to 5/8″-27 threaded adapter, and a 10-foot (3.1 m) USB-C to USB-A cable with a USB-A to USB-C adapter. The AT8455 shock mount, to effectively absorb vibration noise, is sold separately.

Pricing and Availability

The Audio Technica AT2020USB-XP Cardioid condenser USB microphone is now available and comes with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $169 USD. For the latest pricing and availability, kindly follow the link below.
