Audio-Technica is unveiling the new AT2005USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone at Winter NAMM 2012.

Suited 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.


The AT2005USB features a headphone output with volume control that enables the user to monitor the audio signal right from the microphone.
