Get a great sound for your interviews with the Audio-Technica AT8010, a handheld or standmount condenser microphone tailored for speech. Use the on-board switchable high-pass filter to roll-off the low end and minimize sonic rumble.
The mic's omnidirectional polar pattern ensures an even response around the capsule and captures ambiance naturally, which is a boon for you-are-there radio pieces. The rugged housing, complete with a steel grille, is designed for use in demanded locals. Internal shockmounting minimizes handling and cable noise, so the host of a broadcast can share the mic with a guest.
The mic can operate on either phantom power supplied through the XLR connection, or by means of a single AA battery. A mic clip, threaded adapter, battery, and soft protective case are included, as is a windscreen.Ideal for group vocals, strings, cymbal overheads, acoustic guitar, and piano smooth, extended response both on- and off-axis Omnidirectional pattern provides maximum ambient pickup Low sensitivity to popping and overloads Operates on battery or phantom power
