IN A LIVE SITUATION ,WE HAVE USED THE Audio-Technica AT2010
on all 7 vocalist ... we had great results.. the mic cuts thru the mix.. and the vocals were clear and clean.. we did use a pop filter on these mics .. we also used these for some recording and are very satisfied with them
using this for live or studio ,these will be perfect mics and a great value
Ease of Use
this is a mic, it not rocket science to get these mics to sound good for both male or female vocals
this is worth the selling price
never dealt with the company

Depend on your voice, you might like it or hate it.
I own it for a few months already. This is a bright sounding mic. A bit too bright for my taste. If you think SM58 is too muddy for your voice, you may try this AT2010, it might helps your voice to 'cut the crowd'. I tested it with around 6-7 vocalist, so far it is more suitable for male vocalist due to it's bright sound. It is also prone to excessive 'sss', AT should improve the grill and filters. If you are Bass or Alto, this mic might be suitable for you, and help to brightened your voice. But tenors and sopranos might not like it.
Bright sound (depends on the vocalist, could be down side also)
A bit colored, not very neutral
Bright sound, prone to excessive 'sss' sound
This is not a mic that can be easily recommended to everybody. It could sound very good for some people, but could be too bright to others. A proper test is a must before buying this mic. As a tenor, I put a thin layer of cotton under the grill to reduce the brightness. But overall, AT2010 is a decent mic for the price. I think AT shouldn't tweak the freq response, and just leave it as it is, as the AT2020, but with handheld design.
Have drop it a few times, still working well, good construction. It is lighter than SM58, but solidly built. So far have no problem with handling noise.

For me, a tenor, one is enough :)
