Anaheim, CA 01-19-2012 – WINTER NAMM SHOW — Audio-Technica (booth 6740/Hall A), a leading innovator in transducer technology currently celebrating “50 Years of Passionate Listening,” is unveiling the new AT2005USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone at Winter NAMM 2012. Ideal for recording instruments and vocals, this handheld dynamic microphone has both USB and XLR connections, enabling its use either with a computer or with a P.A. system. Its durable metal construction provides long-lasting performance. Its low-mass diaphragm and smooth, extended frequency response make the microphone ideally suited for podcasting, home studio recording, field recording, voiceover and live performance use.

The AT2005USB features a convenient headphone output with volume control that allows the user to monitor the audio signal right from the microphone. The mic’s USB operation is compatible with both Windows- and Mac®-based hardware and software. Its cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of unwanted sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the user’s desired sound source.
