Overview

Audio-Technica's ATR6550x shotgun microphone offers crisp, intelligible pickup from close or far away. A switch on the microphone’s body allows you to shift easily between “Wide” and “Far” settings. The “Wide” setting works best for close and medium-range miking. In the Wide setting, the ATR6550x functions as a standard cardioid condenser. It will focus pickup on your desired sound source, while blocking noise from the rear and sides. Switching to the “Far” setting causes the polar pattern to narrow to supercardioid, giving you even greater directionality to pick up sound from a distance. Even better, it will bypass ambient noise such as traffic, air-handling systems, room reverberation and mechanically coupled vibrations.

Designed especially for use with cameras, the ATR6550x comes with a camera shoe mount and has a permanently attached cable that plugs into a camera’s 3.5 mm (1/8") mic input. Additional accessories include a microphone stand clamp, foam windscreen, and AA battery.
