blue-yeti-microphoneHere is a comparison of the Blue Yeti and the Audio Technica ATR2100.  Both of them are USB microphones that are commonly recommended for podcasters.  The Yeti is a heavy, big, fat condenser microphone and is extremely sensitive.  I used it to record over a hundred hours of lecture for some online graduate courses (not the lectures on this site though).  The ATR2100 is brand new, and this is quite literally the first thing I did with it.

audio-technica-atr2100-microphoneOverall, I like the ATR2100 better.  I think the sound quality is more or less similar, but the plosives are not quite as pronounced as with the Yeti.  I haven’t had a chance to test the ATR2100 for ambient noise yet, because the kiddos are sleeping, but tomorrow I’ll record some ambient noise with both microphones as a follow up test.
