      Audio-Technica AT4053B Hypercardioid Condenser Microphone (501130)
Availability:  


A versatile mic suitable for critical recording, broadcast, and sound reinforcement.

The Audio-Technica AT4053B is a hypercardioid condenser microphone that you can use with confidence in a wide variety of professional miking applications. Featuring direct-coupled balanced outputs for clean signals in high-output conditions, the AT4053B mic is totally free of the distortion associated with conventional transformer-coupled outputs. And its fast response to transients contributes to the open, transparent reproduction of even the most difficult-to-capture instruments.

The microphone is fully RoHS-compliant—free from all substances specified in the EU directive on the reduction of hazardous substances (RoHS). The Audio-Technica AT4053B consists of two modular subassemblies: an AT4900b-48 body and an AT4053b-EL hypercardioid head capsule.

The excellent rear rejection of the AT5053B's hypercardioid pattern makes it great for live sound instrument recording, where additional rear-rejection is required.

Audio-Technica AT4053B Hypercardioid Condenser Microphone Features:

  • Specially engineered to meet the most critical acoustic requirements of professional recording, broadcast and sound reinforcement
    Hypercardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of desired sound source
    Direct-coupled, balanced output results in a clean signal even under high-output conditions
    Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients
    Switchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter and 10 dB pad
    Rugged turned-brass microphone housing for enduring dependability
    State-of-the-art design and manufacturing techniques ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standards
    RoHS-compliant—free from all substances specified in the EU directive on the reduction of hazardous substances (RoHS)

  • Excellent - Favorite for Film

    As reviewed by Michael Pearce on 8/16/2013

    This is my favorite microphone of any that I own, and I prefer it over my more expensive shotgun for indoor film work on a boom. It has a great frequency response curve that yields rich and bright recordings for speech, capturing both the low frequency and high frequency vocal components well. This is certainly a step up from an NTG2 or NTG3. Unlike a shotgun, a hypercardioid has very little off-axis frequency distortion. Off-axis frequency distortion is caused by widely varying polar patterns at different frequencies, and shotgun microphones are particularly susceptible. This makes off-axis sound sources sound tinny and distorted. The problem is particularly noticeable if an actor is moving away from the mic. Indoors, it better to use a hypercardioid like this one for film work than a shotgun for this reason. Solid, durable construction.
