The ATR2100-USB is designed to take you from the stage to the studio and beyond. This rugged handheld microphone offers two outputs, USB output for digital recording and an XLR output that connects with a sound system's conventional microphone input for use in live performance. The microphone plugs right into your computer's USB port and functions seamlessly with your favorite recording software.
The ATR2100-USB also offers a quality analog-to-digital converter for excellent fidelity and a headphone output with level control for monitoring with no audible delay. Its cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of unwanted sounds from the sides and rear. The microphone is ideal for live performance, podcasting, home studio recording, field recording and voiceover use.

Theres not much to say, other than it does not work on windows 8.1
Positives: - Microphone has 3.5mm jack allowing you to monitor with 0 latency - great function - Design is sleek, simple and made of metal, feels heavy and of quality - Sound quality is great, the range may not be that wide (50-15 000 Hz) but is ample at an amateur / hobby level - Overall great value, comes with a stand, zero latency is great function, price is good. Negatives: - Some cheapo carrying pouch / case would have been nice - Have heard of quality issues with the USB / Headphone jack such as breaking. Could be resolved if you minimise the number of unnecessary insertion / removal of USB / headphone cable Good for: - Amateur / hobby singers recording covers - Podcaster / Youtube / Voice over - Value for money - Upgrade from cheapo PC mic / inbuilt microphones
Nice to have option to "go pro" with XLR or direct to computer with USB in one device.
