Overview

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.

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)
