Audio-Technica ATH-Pack5 - unboxing and review

Hi RO members,
I cheaped out for too long about headphones quality in my studio and I thought you might be interested to know what I bought and how they seem to perform.

My later videos are not scripted like I did in the past, I sometime block on a word and seem lost for a few seconds, but I think it's all in good sport of making the effort to speak a second lagauge and trying to get better.. ;)

Audio-Technica AT2020: Help with too much background noise

Audio-Technica AT2020
Help with too much background noise

So i’m using my microphone for live streaming games and lets plays and youtube

I may have made a mistake in buying a Audio-Technica AT2020 USB a while back ,

it picks up WAY TOO much background noise.

A tiny soft bird tweets in the background. The mike picks that up Including the other background noise i don’t want.

I’m using Windows 7 and Abeltone Live

does Audio-Technica AT 4041 can be use in field?

i need to buy a pair of Mic for some Nature recording in Different stereo techniques mainly ORTF i am thinking to buy Audio-Technica AT 4041SP because of neutral sound can they be use in field? are they rugged enough to be use in Field?

other options i have in mind is RODE NT 5 Pair (heard people use it in field and RODE is giving 10 year warranty with it) and Oktava 012.


Audio-Technica AT2035 Problem

I bought an Audio technica at2035 and attempted to use it on my computer. I have a usb XRL cable and I set it as the default audio recording device on my computer. However, whenever I try to record my voice in Audacity nothing happens. I have tried a headset microphone and once I select that as my default audio device it record just fine so it isn't my computer. Could it be that my microphone is broken? I haven't dropped it and it is always safely in it's cushioned case whenever not in use. I am very new to this and so the solution could be quite obvious I simply haven't found it.

Weird static all of a sudden from AT4040

I've been using an AT4040 for years and then all of a sudden yesterday it started giving me this really weird and loud static. I tried swapping out the cable, but still the same result. I tried another condensor and that one worked fine through the same cable, pre and interface.

Here is a recording:

Any ideas?

Shure X2U pre-amp and Audio-Technica BPHS1 Broadcast Stereo Headset Issues


recently I got my hands on a Shure X2U pre-amp and a Audio-Technica BPHS1 Broadcast Stereo Headset. Now the only problem is for this type of headset, background noise and other problems should not be an issue but for some reason it is and it is driving me nuts especially for the amount of money invested here.

If you need anymore info, let me know! Thanks again :D
