Audio Technica ATR-1300 Dynamic XLR Mic Review / Test

Audio Technica ATR-1300 Dynamic XLR Mic Review / Test


In this video, I review the ATR-1300, a $30 Dynamic XLR Microphone. It is a great budget option for live environments, but also performs well with an XLR to USB cable.

Hey, Podcastage. I have a Blue Icicle laying around my house. If you remember, you recommended that I use a SYBA USB sound card, so do you think the icicle would be better for my bm8000?

Would you recommend this mic for performing (acoustic guitar and vocals) outdoors, hooked directly to a Crate Acoustic amp?

What mics do you advise for doing guest interviews over a podcast. I have a zoomh4n and I would be doing these mostly at the guest locations

Do u think the AKG D5 would be an upgrade to this?
Altho, the cardioid patterns are different.

Hey, will the ATR1300 give a good sound quality for recording vocals when used with an audio interface?
camerontheDJ 26-11-2016 22:30
Nice job on 17k! I mentioned something earlier when you had 16k about 20 minutes ago, but congrats, bro!

Great review! This one or Behringer xm8500 for singing? I record my songs on an App named Smule Sing.. My voice has a thin texture that sounds kiddish when I record a song… I want to sound better.. Can you suggest a dynamic microphone accordingly? Thanks in advance.. Waiting for a response!

Interesting that using XLR to XLR cable changes the gain even though phantom power is not enabled.

Ahaahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahaha that little song ya made up was dam funny. I like this mike. I’m glad to hear that this 1 is real like the memorex I had. That thing was surious. I was surprised Target had such a pro mike. It was some karaoke mike Memorex made. Dude the gril on that thing even smelt pro. My AT 8022 when I took it out of the box had a similar smell.

Myst 25-11-2016 14:54

Tekinette 27-11-2016 15:19
Hi, what would you suggest is a good 20-50$ unidirectional mic plugged directly into the pc, that can sit on my desk ?
ItzBooks 25-11-2016 13:51
I love this, since most people don’t really do good microphone reviews, and on the cheaper ones aswell, it’s all like $100+ ones. But i made a $4 vocal booth which i dont know if you think it is any good, its on a cideo on my channel. Keep it up man

Remember your video about the CAD U37. They fix it and they published another version of it the CAD U39. It costs about 80 dollars on I tried this mic and I can say it is fixed
