Introduction

In terms of equipment, several roads are available once you've decided to launch a career as a content creator. The general idea is to gear up with a solid pair of headphones and, more importantly, a great microphone, which will make you sound pleasant to your listeners or viewers. Poor microphone quality is a sure way to effectively destroy your chances of ever reaching a wider audience, making it one of the most important aspect of any proper live streaming, podcasting, or content-creating setup. This is exactly where Audio-Technica steps in with their Creator Pack: a pair of headphones, a microphone, and even a boom arm meant to kick-start your streaming or recording career without completely emptying your wallet or causing you a ton of headaches in terms of connectivity.



The Audio-Technica Creator Pack consists of the excellent ATR2500x-USB cardioid condenser microphone, the well-known ATH-M20x wired monitor headphones, a desktop tripod stand, and a medium-reach microphone boom arm, which as far as I can tell isn't sold as a standalone product. The whole package sells for $200/€200, so you're getting a slight discount compared to buying the headphone ($50/€50), microphone ($120/€120), and boom arm (good ones go for around $100/€100) separately. As a complete solution, the Creator Pack is an interesting proposition not only to content creators, but also those who want a buy-and-forget solution for their work from home teleconferencing and videoconferencing affairs. In this review, we'll examine the Creator Pack piece by piece to figure out whether it successfully pulls off what it set out to do.
