A Quality, Affordable Condenser Mic for the Stage!

The Audio-Technica AT2010 hand-held condenser microphone brings studio-quality sound and articulation to the stage, giving you ultra-clear vocals that dynamic mics just can't reproduce. The AT2010 is also a truly great bargain, providing high-SPL-handling, rugged construction, and the quality sound that Audio-Technica is known for, all for a remarkably low price. The cardioid polar pattern reduces sound pickup from the sides and rear, giving you great isolation for live sound control, and a multi-stage grille design effectively stops plosives and sibilance without sacrificing the high-end clarity of the AT2010.

  • Extended frequency response and superior transient response
  • High SPL-handling and wide dynamic range
  • Multi-stage grille design

  • Rugged, all-metal construction for years of trouble-free service
  • Quiet-Flex stand clamp included
  • Element: Fixed-charge back plate permanently polarized condenser
  • Polar pattern: Cardioid
  • Frequency response: 40Hz-20kHz
  • Open circuit sensitivity: -48 dB (3.9 mV) re 1V at 1 Pa
  • Impedance: 100 ohms
  • Maximum input sound level: 136 dB SPL, 1 kHz at 1% T.H.D.
  • Dynamic range (typical): 113 dB, 1 kHz at max SPL

Like velvet

I first started using AT microphones in the 80's, doing piano bar gigs. I went to headset Crowns, then EV's, and , of course Shure's. I like this mic for the beautiful low end. It's warm and clean. There's very little rumble in my opinion. I must say, however, that I've not used it at very high spl levels. Just cocktail and standards. I really do like it. It can take abuse. (Like a Timex, "takes a lick'n and keeps on tick'n")
Music background: 50+ yrs of piano, piano bar and cocktail experience. Stage production, club sound installations.

A work horse of a mic

This is my second AT 2010, and I am thinking about ordering another. I like the tone this mic created with this mic, and particularly enjoy it's versatility as a field mic for recording live and tracke music and for recording talk.

A Poor Mans KMS105?

I have owned and used this mic for about two years now. The sound is silky smooth and clean yet with a fantastic warmth. It's not harsh at all, but clean and smooth. I was hoping to find a nice handheld condenser, really I was wanting a Neumann KMS105 but I couldn't afford that great microphone. I saw this at the store and decided to take a chance on it. I have several other Audio Technica mics and I know their quality. Well, this mic is better than I could have hoped for. The sound blows away, and it's not even close, a Beta 58, Sennheiser e835 and almost any dynamic mic. I even compared it to my Beyer M88, which is one of the best dynamic mics ever made, and for my voice, this unit is the best. I wouldn't say it's a KMS105 but for the money, you can have 7 of these and would be hard pressed to say why the 105 is seven times better.

More than adequate.

It's what you would expect it is. A handheld format contender mic (yes, it needs 48v) that delivers clearer highs and cleaner falsetto than your average Sm-58. Considering the price, absolutely worth it for a female live performer, or a male performer who uses a lot of falsetto / head voice. Even handy in the studio for the singer that just has to handle their mic while they perform.
