    I am planning to buy AT2035 and Scarlett 2i2 to start my home studio. Scarlett 2i2 cost 149 USD on amazon and AT2035 cost 149 USD also. Then I came across to this amazon bundle deals

    Amazon.com: Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Vocalist Package - EXPANDED: Electronics

    It is only 149 USD for MXL 770 and Scarlett 2i2 plus mic stand, pop filter and headphones. Is is worth to buy? Is MXL 770 had the quality of Audio Technica AT2035?

    Please Help Me. Thanks.

    It's true that audio technica has a better reputation, but.. the best thing you could do is to try them.
    You're not saying what you want to record but I guess you vocal is on the planning.. So to find the right mic for your voice, there's only one way : try listen and compare.
    And don't discard dynamic mics as well.

    I would say it's worth going for the package - you get a mic stand, pop shield, XLR cable and paperweight for free. Then get the AT microphone to put on the stand, fix up the pop shield and connect the mic to the interface using the cable.

    The headphones appear in the photo of the package but not in the text, so they could be the surprise item.

    Why would they give you all that stuff for free? Obviously that was a typo.
