Rode NT-USB or AT-2020 usb plus?
at-2020 plus is much cheaper, but has no pop filter.
Both mics seem to have high quality voice. What you all think? thanks!

It’s not bad but u have a better one. For only 80 bucks the mics called : Auna 900b usb

Dark_wizzie says:

Holy fuck, why do you guys care how to pronounce Rode? You understand what he was trying to communicate. And great, you are broke and you think $200 is a lot. Empty wallet jokes got old after about the second time out of the million times it has been used. SHUT UP.

I am surprised that Linus is getting less background noise with Yeti Pro vs Yeti. I think it would be unfair to say Yeti Pro is just Yeti with XLR (and the higher frequency recording which doesn’t matter for home use). I am still curious about Yeti Pro vs AT2020/2035 for background noise. I believe 2035 has a bass rolloff, so very low end rumbling would just be cut out. As often as I trash Linus, I think this is a pretty good video, and his look at off axis testing is a very good idea, which others should do more of.

Great Review

ChickenS:GO says:

$200 inexpensive damn y’all motherfuckers are made of money i bet

Exiled Entity says:

I love this Mic got one the other day highly suggest it considering it comes with a stand and a pop filter which would cost you around $40 separately, I personally think it’s a better mic then the Blue Yeti plus it comes with a 20 foot USB cord 🙂

Rusa slayer says:

What’s the keyboard on your desk? We have the blue and brown version where I live, I haven’t seen the red one before. I’m assuming it uses red switches?
