Now, the company is well-known for building quality microphones and highly popular headphones, such as the ATH-M50 and ATH-M50x. Their condenser mics are highly regarded as being the best bang for your buck - the famed AT2020, as well as the AT4040 and the AT4050 are widely considered the best condenser microphones for the price currently in production. Whether you want to listen to hear every note when you listen to music or create music yourself, you can be sure that Audio-Technica makes the perfect gear for your needs.
