Do I really need a shock mount?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi I am getting the AT 2020 USB for gameplay commentary, skyping, teamspeak, and just basic stuff like that, nothing special, do I need a 

Samson SP01? Or any shock mount at all? Thanks!

I have one; it came with my scissor arm I believe. They're nice, and if it isn't going to be much more I'd get one.

 

This is what I have I believe. Not 100% sure though. Hell, my shock mount may have come with my AT2035.

Yes you need one. Please get one. 


 Just because you don't care, doesn't mean other others don't. Don't be a self-centered asshole. -Thank You a PSA from the people who do not say random shit on the internet.

You definitely do not need one, but it would be a nice addition if you can afford it.

no.

 

It prevents static pops so your friend's ears don't hurt when you talk.  Basically.

what is it for exactally im not too clear

if you bump your desk it won't be as loud, and the vibrations from your pc etc. wont get into your mic

 

tbh only specific people need them

That's not what a shock mount does.... That's a pop filter.  Having used the AT2020 for over a year, I would recommend a shockmount if you have one.  Any little bump your hands make on the table from typing, mouse movement etc will be reflected in the mic just like how WAN Show had to put a t-shirt under their mic a few weeks ago for a similar problem.


QUOTE ME IN A REPLY SO I CAN SEE THE NOTIFICATION!
